What is your favorite Halloween candy?
Butterfingers. And Milk Duds. And those little fruit flavored Tootsie Rolls. And the mini Baby Ruth.
What is one of the worst “treats” you ever received in your candy bag?
I don’t know. Smarties maybe. But I guess kids like them. And I have this super cute craft you can make with them.
What was one of your favorite costumes you wore when you were a kid?
My mom wasn’t big on Halloween so my costume was something that was usually thrown together at the last minute. My favorite was the year I was seven and she dressed me as a business lady. She took one of her skirts and cinched it up with safety pins. She did the same with a button down shirt. We topped that with the matching suit jacket. She teased up my hair and let me wear makeup. I clomped around in a pair of her heels and carried my dad’s briefcase. It was awesome.
How about your favorite costume as an adult?
My kids LOVE for me to wear a costume. Me? Not so much. One year I was Mabel from Gravity Falls.
Last year I threw together a “cranky old lady” costume at the last minute (seriously, like 10 minutes before it was time to start trick or treating). Everyone seemed to think it was awesome. And seriously the most comfortable costume ever. Who doesn’t want to walk around in their nightgown all the time?
What scares you most on Halloween? Spiders? Zombies? Axe murderers? Eyeballs in a jar… (or something else)?
I think Jana’s son is going to dress up as Michael Myers. That would scare the bejeezus out of me for sure.
So then, what is your favorite scary movie??
Um, Halloween. But I usually don’t watch those types of slasher movies. I like the suspenseful type of scare more, like The Others or The Sixth Sense or Stir of Echoes (<--- best movie ever, Netflix doesn't have it streaming, but they do have the DVD).
What is you favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal?
The eating part. Obviously. But I also like the early morning part. The being in the kitchen with my mom chopping and cooking and laughing. That part is pretty awesome too.
What is your favorite piece of clothing or accessory to wear in the Fall?
Boots. By far the best part. I hate long sleeves and turtle necks and stuffy clothes. But I love boots.
What is your favorite pie? If you do not like pie I will forgive you but then what is your favorite Fall dessert?
Pumpkin pie with whipped cream. It has always and forever been my favorite. But if you are looking for something, I do have 31 Days of Pies from last year. I bet you can find a favorite there. Just sayin’.
Do you live where there are four seasons? If so, where is your favorite place to see the fall colors?
No. The Texas Gulf Coast is not really known for fall colors. Or seasons. BUT if you drive a little bit north of us up to the lakes you can see some trees changing colors. It is always beautiful up there this time of year.
What is your favorite fall tradition?
The holidays. It seems like this time of year is spent with family. I love that. So many things we get to do together. Also, if I’m being honest with myself, I really love making Cady’s Halloween costume
every most years. I guess that has become kind of a tradition. I can’t wait to show you what I made her this year.
Is there anything else special about the Fall to you?
The way the air smells. I love when that breeze starts blowing in from the west and the north. It carries a different scent. Something clean and fresh and new. I love it.
