Finally Friday! I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been super tired this week. So I’m looking forward to sleeping in this weekend.
I’m usually up before 6 a.m. during the week to get my workout in and to get my day started before classes and such.
I’ve also started to volunteer at my local homeless shelter, so on my rest day I was up again at 6 a.m. I’ll be volunteering this weekend as well, but luckily Saturday it’s a bit later which will allow me to sleep in a bit.
Anyway, since it’s Friday I figured it would be fun to do a little Fall survey that I saw on Matt and Ashley’s blog. I can never pass up a fun survey.
Apple picking or pumpkin picking?
I’ve never been apple picking, but I really want to go sometime! I think I would enjoy that more than pumpkin picking, but seeing that I live in Florida, I won’t be going anytime soon.
Favorite apple recipe?
Hard question. Anything with apples is really delicious. I made an apple crisp for Thanksgiving last year though, and it was to die for.
Favorite pumpkin recipe
This was the worst question, ever. I honestly like almost anything pumpkin. I’ll go with Matt’s answer though and say pumpkin pancakes. Or Jaime Eason’s pumpkin protein bars – I make them every week!
Favorite soup recipe
I love soup. My mom makes amazing carrot soup which is probably my favorite. Butternut squash, pea, and black bean soup come in next (in that order).
Football: on TV or in the stadium?
Depends on the weather! Stadium is always more fun, but not if it’s 110 degrees out and I am dripping.
Favorite football team to cheer for?
Daylight savings time: Love it or hate it?
Fall back? Love it! Spring forward? Not so much.
How do your workouts change during the fall months?
I usually run a bit more during fall. The weather is so much nicer and I just want to be outside, so outdoor runs are perfect!
Any fashion essentials for fall weather?
Leather jacket, a scarf, and some warm socks.
Do your meals change when the weather changes?
I definitely eat warmer foods. Roasted squash, veggies, sweet potato, soups, etc.
Favorite fall dessert?
Not sure! I’d say some type of warm baked good (apple crisp, pumpkin pie) with cold vanilla ice cream.
Best thing about fall?
Cooler weather mostly and being able to drink my beloved hot coffee without dripping sweat.
