I’m still new to the blogging community so I’ve been pretty unaware of the whole “blogtober” concept. I’m learning things as I got, but hopefully I’ll be able to participate in more by next year! For now, in the spirit of Halloween and not knowing what to post about today, I’ll be doing the Fall tag!

- Answer the 10 fall-related questions.
- Tag at least 5 other bloggers to join in the fun!
What’s your favorite Fall outfit?
I wish Florida weather was the type where you could pull off wearing seasonal clothing at the appropriate times but… it’s just way to hot here to be in cozy sweaters and scarves. So I’m gonna have to sadly pass on this one. I’d definitely be wearing all kinds of sweaters with long festive socks and boots.
What is Fall weather like where you live?
We don’t really have seasons down here. At least when I lived in South Florida, there was a wet season and a not-as-wet season. Both involved really hot weather. Now that I’m in Central Florida, I’m hoping the winters will be cooler. For now, Fall is just as hot as summer. Sometimes rainy.
What’s your favorite drink to have in the Fall?
I love a cup of hot cocoa with marshmallows. I particularly love Abuelita hot chocolate but we save that for the winter. Fall seems like tea weather, but I don’t really drink tea. I’d definitely like to make chamomile tea my go-to Fall drink.
Does your family have any Fall traditions? If so, what are they?
We don’t, really? I mean we do trick or treating as a family, even if it’s just to take the kids. But even my mom still dresses up and asks for candy! It’s a fun time, usually. Some years we don’t even celebrate Thanksgiving but Black Friday is always an event we like to participate in.
What’s your favorite Fall scented candle?
Cinammon or nutmeg!
What are some activities and events you enjoy going to in the Fall months?
I’d love to go to Disney during Halloween time! For now, my favorites are just Halloween and Thanksgiving. Mostly cause I love to eat.
Tell us about one of your favorite Fall memories.
Back when I lived in Chicago, I used to celebrate Dia de los Muertos with my family. We would always throw parties and eat calaveras (sugar skulls) and bob for apples and play fun games to win prizes. It was honestly the best.
What are some Fall movies you enjoy watching?
Nightmare before Christmas, Halloweentown, Twitches, Practical Magic. The kind of movies that tend to play around this time. I still love a good classic Disney original.
What’s your favorite Fall treat?
I’m not sure I have a favorite Fall treat? I suppose I do love those festive frosted cookies that are so soft and fluffy. Those are great.
If you celebrate Halloween, what is the best costume you’ve ever worn?
I’ve worn a lot of costumes, however the Pikachu onesie from two years ago might be my favorite. It was definitely the most fun. When I dressed up as Princess Aurora/Sleeping Beauty in preschool, though… that was pretty iconic.
