Happy Monday! I’ve been busy writing this morning and working on some stuff for next week when I go home to Maryland, so I thought I’d join in on the survey I’ve seen all over people’s blogs. Even though it’s not quite fall weather down here, (it’s a “seasonably average” 88 degrees) this is a fun little fall survey to kick off the week!
Apple picking or pumpkin picking?
Apple picking! Last fall Nick and I went with his then-roommate and it was actually a LOT of fun. Too bad there aren’t any orchards down here in Orlando!
Favorite apple recipe?
My mom makes the best apple crisp that she only makes a couple of times a year. I don’t have the actual recipe, but it’s safe to say that Courtney’s recipe is pretty close to it.
Favorite pumpkin recipe?
This one is hard! I’d have to say it’s for this Pumpkin Gingerbread. I’ve made it the last couple of years with my mom around Thanksgiving, and it is so, so good! I actually prefer it without the icing, but it’s good either way!
Favorite soup recipe?
Honestly, I’m not a big soup person. I usually just buy premade soups from the store, and my favorite is probably just tomato!
Football: on TV or in the stadium?
In the stadium! You’re talking to the girl who wanted to spend her career on the sidelines. Of course I’m going to say live!
Favorite football team to cheer for?
Tough. I have two loves of my life in the football world, one college and one professional team. My heart is with the Terps football team, since I worked for the team in college. I also love the Ravens!
Daylight Savings Time – love it or hate it?
Love it for the extra sleep, hate it for taking away my sunshine!
How do your workouts change (if at all) during the fall months?
My workouts usually don’t depend on the seasons, although I will hopefully be able to get in some outdoor runs once the weather cools down down here.
Favorite Halloween candy?
Reese’s cups. Duh. Or pumpkins.
Any fashion essentials for fall weather?
I fell in love with scarves last year, as well as boots. I hope I actually have a chance to wear them this year!
Do your meals change when the weather changes?
A little bit. When it’s colder, I prefer something warmer in the morning since I am always freezing, like oatmeal.
Favorite fall dinner?
Does Thanksgiving count? I’m too lazy to think of something else!
Favorite fall dessert?
Best thing about fall?
Pumpkin flavored EVERYTHING!
Worst thing about fall?
The cold weather!
Best thing that will happen in fall 2012?
I get to go home and visit my friends & family! I’m counting down the days until I get to see them. It’s been over 2 months and I can’t WAIT!
