Kate’s Fall Favorites Giveaway!

CATEGORIES: General News

First of all, I’m going to be doing a Facebook live TODAY at 2:00 pm CT–I’m going to be sharing an AMAZING cannoli recipe and would LOVE it if you joined me!

It’s fall, y’all. Sorry. I couldn’t help it. It actually hasn’t felt like fall here in Louisiana until yesterday–in fact, on Monday afternoon/evening, it was in the nineties and then on Tuesday, I woke up and it was in the fifties and I was pretty sure that I personally was being rewarded for something. 

But even when it was in the nineties, I was in denial. Like, every year, I think if I start dressing like it’s fall and burn fall-ish candles, the weather will magically change. It does…eventually…but I’m pretty sure I have very little to do with it.

To celebrate my newfound fall weather (and yeah, I’m pretty sure most everyone else has been experiencing fall for a good, solid six weeks now), I’m giving away a box of my current fall favorites! I’ll send off a box of everything in this post, plus a few little odds and ends that make me happy (like an iTunes gift card…music taste is too personal for me to just gift you something!)

  1. Cozy Knee Socks. I’m such a sucker for cozy socks in the fall and winter, the more ridiculous, the better. Like fuzzy knee socks? That won’t fit into shoes and that I’ll never wear outside the house? Sign me up, please. I’ll see you when I leave the house again in April.
  2. Zapp’s Voodo Kettle Chips. Zapp’s is a Louisiana brand–I don’t remember if I ever saw them before we moved here, but I know I definitely had never had them. They. Are. So. Good. They come in all sorts of fun flavors like dill pickle and spicy crawtator, but my favorite are the Voodoo chips. They’re a little sweet, a tiny bit spicy, but totally packed with flavor. Yesterday, after an incredibly stressful day, I sat down with a full size bag and ate an embarrassing amount of them. And I wasn’t really all that sorry.
  3. Leaves Candle. Leaves has been a long-time favorite of ours, and this is not the first time we’ve written about it, but it is a classic and it is fall for me. Bath and Body Works actually had an incredible fall candle earlier this year called Mahogany Apple–it was sweet and smoky and perfect, but I can’t find it anymore, so Leaves it is. If you’ve never smelled it, you must.
  4. Popcorn Indiana Black & White Popcorn. Speaking of eating an embarrassing amount of something straight out of the bag. Sam’s Club sells this stuff in giant bags and let’s just say out of self-preservation, I can’t buy that size anymore if I’m not taking it directly to a party. This stuff is incredibly addictive. Proceed at your own risk.
  5. “I Wish I Was Full of Tacos” Mug. I have a few of these adorable mugs from this Etsy shop –they’re enamel-coated metal, so they’re pretty rough and tumble. They look small, but they actually hold an ounce more than traditional mugs. I love mine so much–they’re my go-to for hot or cold drinks–and they also make really wonderful gifts; everyone I’ve ever given one to absolutely loves them!

Okay. So. To win all these things (plus a handful of other goodies), leave me a comment telling me your current favorite thing about fall–it could be what you’re up to in your life or your favorite product or just something wonderful going on right now! Giveaway ends Sunday (October 22, 2017) at 9:00 pm CT and I’ll announce the winner in my post on Monday morning! You must have a United States address to win. Good luck! 🙂

  1. I love the crisp fall weather — give me jeans and a cozy sweatshirt and I’m happy as can be. There is one thing that makes it even better though — munching on a delicious honey crisp apple and sipping warm cocoa!

  2. The weather is just turning cool and I LOVE it. It’s nice to pull out some cozy cardigans & light jackets in the morning and it’s so refreshing. 🙂 Thanks for doing the giveaway!

  3. I love the leaves, all the red, gold and orange colors and especially love that drop in the humidity that finally makes it feel like fall in NC!

  4. I love baking all my fall faves: caramel apple cake, pumpkin muffins (of course OBB recipe) and molasses cookies. Love the open windows with a fall candle burning and a warm blankie to watch a movie. Yep, fall is my fave!!

  5. I love the color of the leaves changing. I love to see the beauty as I drive. I love the cooler weather. Not so much a hot weather person. I so enjoy college football games too. love apple cider and apple cider donuts. I also enjoy baking and as the cooler weather comes on I bake more for others.

  6. My favorite thing about fall is the crisp mornings. I like to open my windows and snuggle under the blanket. I live in a fairly humid place in the summer so fall mornings are a welcome change!

  7. I’m in Houston, so my favorite thing is to open the doors and windows and let air in. The humidity isn’t gone, but it’s going. . I know you know what all abt that in la.

  8. I sort of miss wearing layers. It’s too hot to wear layers in Texas. The weather has been nice though! Very grateful for that. I can take my kids out to play without scorching! YAY FOR FALL!!!

  9. My family and I all love all things pumpkin and apple! I love the Leaves changing (but not the falling off) and the sweater/jacket weather. W shave beautiful fall colors in VA.

  10. I Love fall. Apple Crisp hot out of the oven. Anything pumpkin (Almost) and I love Halloween. Fuzzy Socks are a must & Zapps are awesome…wish I could find them in my city!

  11. I love going out to the garden at the end of the season and picking the pumpkins! It is so satisfying to see the golden orange pumpkins shining through the frozen dying vines.

  12. I love being able to have the AC off and the windows open when I get home from work. Also, love being able to wear cozy clothes!

  13. I love hiking in the fall leaves. When the leaves are changing color all around me and some are on the ground. Crunching through the leaves is such a fun thing.

  14. I love when you guys do a favorites post- and even more love for this one because fall is my fav! Give me all the pumpkins! I am loving them all this fall.

  15. I love the apples! My family and I went apple picking for the first time and it was so fun. I made some caramel apples with them from a recipe from one your cookbooks actually and it was amazing.

  16. I’m in Florida, so I feel like all the things I love about fall are things I really miss since living here! My most favorite thing is the cool weather, and my second favorite thing has got to be burning my fall candles. I’m still waiting for the weather to change but I’ve been burning my candles for a month now. ?

  17. My favorite thing is breaking out my favorite fall perfumes that just smell like fall leaves, pumpkin lattes, and cranberries.

  18. Cinnamon, pumpkins, leaves, crisp weather & turkey!! Not to mention a slew of fall birthdays which means lots of time with family 🙂

  19. I live in the DC region, and we are also just finally getting some fall weather this week! I love so much about fall (sweaters and boots, pumpkins and changing leaves, a fire in the fire pit) but one of my favorite things is how much better it feels to run outdoors when the humidity finally clears and there’s a chill in the air. Makes something that can feel torturous in the summer actually feel enjoyable…at least until it gets TOO cold!

  20. Love pretty much everything about fall! It’s my favorite season!! But I think I will go with high school marching band season – very busy, but super fun! Thanks!

  21. Taking my 3 boys on hikes while the fall leaves are changing and putting in the most splendid show. Fall is my favorite time of year

  22. Pumpkin everything, my cinnamon broom from Trader Joes and warm apple cider are my favs. Plus watching my 2 littles play in the leaves- it is magical!

  23. I love summer, but fall makes it so much easier to move into winter. Gradually layering clothing, wrapping up in soft and cozy blankets, and spending more time at home with my family.

  24. Obviously the gorgeous leaves, but really probably the best thing is that I can wear my hair down again because it’s finally not too hot to have to have it up in a ponytail!

  25. I’m in Arizona with highs still in the upper 90’s, but the overnight temps have been dropping. My current Fall fav is opening my windows at 5:00 am when I get up, and feeling the cool air. 🙂

  26. The beautiful colors of the leaves with the October sunshine lighting them up; wearing jeans and a sweatshirt with boots; picking out pumpkins with my family; SOUP SEASON!

  27. I live in Ohio and this time of year is absolutely beautiful!!! All the different colors of leaves against the bright blue sky, I love it!!!! And of course the apple orchards, just went on Saturday and made applesauce on Sunday, going back next weekend for apple butter apples!!!! ????

  28. Favorite thing currently about fall is the amazing weather we’ve been having! cool at night but warm during the day.

  29. My birthday! Except, this year, being “the big one” (I shall now say WHICH “big one”), I am happy but hope everyone else forgets it is my birthday!
    Also, love-love the foliage..crisp mornings…snuggling in sweaters and sweats…a warm cup of anything nestled between my hands!
    Also, baking without considering if it will “heat up” the house…bring on the oven temperatures!

  30. I love that it’s not 100* in Arizona anymore! Also that the mornings are getting cooler, and that I can dress my baby in cute, slightly warmer clothes. Is there anything cuter than a baby in a hoodie? I don’t think so. 🙂

  31. I like being able to bake again. It’s too hot during summer and I refuse to turn on my oven. It’s just starting to cool down here too.

  32. One of my favorite things about Fall right now is pumpkin flavored everything. Is that too obvious? I just feel the pumpkin obsession strong this year. Bread, cookies, etc. Thanks for the giveaway chance! <3

  33. I love the sweaters, the beautiful colors, and cooler temps, but my favorite thing is that it gets dark earlier which means my kids will go to bed earlier!

  34. Fall is usually my favorite because I love the holidays- Halloween, Thanksgiving, and most of my Christmas celebrating is technically in the fall season ;). This fall my favorite thing is that my husband is moving back from India in 10 days, so our family can be reunited again!!

  35. The smell of soup simmering on the stove wafting through the house while windows are still able to be cracked open and exterior doors opened to screen doors. The crispness of outside and leaves falling is another favorite scent!

  36. I love the beautiful Fall leaves, cardigans, pumpkin spice, lighting a Fall candle after I’ve cleaned up the kitchen, the return of “Thursday soup and roll night” and all the fun family traditions that come with the upcoming holidays. Oh and for sure the return of This Is Us.

  37. I love seeing the leaves change on the mountains. This year has been specatular! And Leaves candles are my very favorite. I may or may not have one on my night stand all year round :).

  38. I love fall because of the cooler temperatures and the color changes. I just want to be outdoors all of the time! Being able to put on a warm, chunky sweater, sitting around a fire, drinking a hot chocolate.

  39. The fall weather, the fall clothes, the fall food, the fall leaves, the fall smells, Halloween, Thanksiving, the overall cozy feeling of fall that makes me want to curl up and read or watch episode after episode of Gilmore GIrls. Too many wonderful things about this season to just pick one favorite!

  40. I love the cool, crisp weather and especially the gorgeous colors on all of the maple trees. There are several streets in my area lined with maple trees and they all turn the most beautiful and vibrant shade of scarlet!

  41. The weather in central NY has been CRAZY! It was almost 90 degrees HERE on Sunday! It’s been great weather for some fun fall activities like apple and pumpkin picking, but I’m excited for some cool (even rainy?) weather for an excuse to light the pellet stove, wear some cozy clothes, and spend the afternoon watching football! Also, I’m hosting my VERY FIRST Thanksgiving this year (in my new house) so I’ve been enjoying putting up fall decorations.

  42. The ash tree in front of my house that’s all yellow right now. I love it. Every time I pull into the driveway I take a minute and notice how beautiful it is.

  43. I am currently digging throwing pumpkin and pumpkin spice into EVERYTHING I bake. Gah I can’t get enough! And that popcorn you talked about sounds right up my alley! Gotta love a ginormous bag of goodness!

  44. I love the beautiful rich Fall colors, cardigans and boots, cooler weather, pumpkin spice recipes, Fall scented candles from Bath and Body Works. Fall is just the BEST!!!

  45. We have 4 birthdays and host a neighborhood Halloween party each fall. I wouldn’t want to keep this pace all the time, but I love all the gifts and cakes and celebrations. It’s such a fun time.

  46. I love all the trees in their fall colors! I love walking in the evening light and hearing the crunching of leaves underfoot.

  47. My favorite part of fall this year is the super clear and crisp mornings we sometimes get (when it’s not raining!).

  48. I love the extra time spent with extended family members. We host family for trick or treating, I have a fall favorite things brunch for the ladies in my family, and we have several bonfire and game nights all season long. It’s the best!

  49. I love the color of the changing fall leaves! I lived in Florida for 4 years so I know about fall being too hot and completely devoid of fall colors, so I really appreciate them now that I live in Idaho!

  50. I live in wyoming, and right now we’re having beautifully warm weather but the leaves have all changed and it’s really the best of both worlds! Plus, my kid is back in school and settled into that routine 😉

  51. Football! Miss seeing the seasons really change, as we live in southern california and I grew up in Boise. But at least there is football.

  52. I am from Missouri and my favorite part about fall is the fresh apples!! I LOVE taking my boys apple picking and then coming home and making a pie and an apple crisp. I am pretty much living on baked apples and greek yogurt right now.

  53. There is so much to love about fall, but I must admit that one of my favorite things about fall is that there are fewer bugs (especially of the biting kind)!

  54. Soup and anything made with apples! I live in california and can’t wait for the temps to drop and the fires and smoke to go away!

  55. My favorite thing about fall has been running down the canyon. The leaves were at the perfect peak and it was 10 miles of pure bliss that felt like a fake postcard.

  56. We don’t really have fall in southern California. It has been over 100 every day this week. But next week I’m meeting 12 of my dearest friends in Chicago and there will be fall weather and BFFs and Hamilton and it will be the best fall ever.

  57. Opening the windows! I’m in Dallas and we were still 90* too up until Sunday or so. We’ve had 3 days in the 70s and I love it! We can go outside again!

  58. I love so many things about fall! Football season is probably at the top. I’ll be heading to Blacksburg, VA this weekend to watch Virginia Tech play and there is nothing better than being in the mountains watching my favorite team play at this time of year.

    I also LOVE cooking every stew, soup, and chili that I can find!

  59. I love the smell, as generic as that sounds. It’s the mix of that sharpness in the colder air with the wet leaves and that occasional whiff of someone’s fire. It’s the very best.

  60. I love the changing of the season. It’s time for hot chocolate, chili, beef stew, homemade bread, cider. I love being outside with the changing of the colors.

  61. I feel like I’m dying all summer in the intense heat, so when it finally starts to cool down I feel like I can breathe again. Plus boots, cardigans, and scarves are collectively my spirit animal. I just feel more *me* in the fall, you know? It’s when I come alive. There’s nothing prettier IMO than a drive through the canyon when the leaves are changing. And I love the anticipation of the holidays coming up, I love to bake all the fall things, and I love the transition to soup and comfort food. So…basically I love everything about fall!

  62. Reading mysteries in the fall by the fire. Right now I’m rereading Murder on the Orient Express so I can feel good about seeing the movie later this fall.

  63. Fall is my favorite! I love the sweaters and jackets and boots. My favorite thing this year has been the return of the school schedule. I love all things order and routine and school makes that so much easier. Plus I get an ice cream cone and Hulu and naptime and I don’t have to share with anybody.

  64. Cooler weather (although not yet for me) jeans, sweatshirts, pumpkins and all fall decorations are my favorite things about fall. The fact that my first and last children were born in October is also something to celebrate!

  65. Leaves changing colors and pumpkins… I just love using my gas fireplace no heat or airconditioning , just the fireplace so cozy?

  66. Sweaters, boots, fall candles, the colors of the leaves! We aren’t getting much as far as color in Illinois this year with all the heat we’ve had 🙁

  67. I’ve been making homemade chai lattes (yay, I can make them dairy-free and with way less sugar!) and they’re so cozy and warm – the perfect drink for fall, sorry not sorry PSL!

  68. My favorite thing about fall is being able to play outside again! (Arizona…sad trombone) Runner up is my birthday–it’s today!

  69. I love all of the Fall foods out at the Farmer’s Markets (apple cider, pumpkin bread) and the fact that everywhere I look the leaves have turned color. I love that it gets darker faster at night and I can cozy up under a blanket and watch This is Us. I like planning out what we will wear for family pictures in this beautiful weather and starting to think about Halloween parties and Thanksgiving.. not Christmas just yet.. I like to savor my Fall holidays. So much to love about FALL!

  70. The beginning of fall and the holidays for our family is our “three birthdays in three days” extravaganza! My husband’s is Oct 12th, mine is Oct 13th, and our son’s is Oct 14th! So we celebrate “Happy Birth Week” in our house! 🙂

  71. My favorite thing about fall is knowing that I survived the hot summer and now get to wear light layers and cute plaids. Thanks for the chance to win this generous giveaway!

  72. I love fall because it’s finally acceptable to eat pumpkin again! Oh, and I can bake during the day, instead of waiting until nighttime, when it’s finally below 90 degrees.

  73. I love everything fall except for we don’t get a fall in Florida. 🙁 So mostly, it’s caramel dipped apples and apple cider to get in the mood!

  74. I love that I want to snuggle up in blankets instead of run around with as little clothes as possible. And my birthday- its next week and a favorite thing about fall. 🙂

  75. My favorite thing about fall is marching band. I figure that if you want to take little kids to a musical performance, something outside on bleachers with loud percussion and girls twirling flags and rifles is the way to go!

  76. We just barely started fall a week or so ago ourselves, so I know what you mean by waiting for it. 🙂 I love being able to be outside again after 100+ temps all summer. My kids and I love walks, so it’s always nice to get back to it!

  77. I love the point when I can start sleeping under the covers again! Summer is so freaking hot, it’s miserable waking up in a pool of sweat. Sleeping is the best during FALL!

  78. I love fall baking! I live in Savannah, GA so it doesn’t get super cold here but there is nothing better than filling the kitchen with those delicious smells!

  79. I love crunchy, fallen leaves. I love wind blowing leaves off trees and watching leaves flutter and swirl in the wind as if to defy gravity as they fall. I love looking at the covers of food magazines and seeing all the yummy fall baking. It’s as if you can smell the baking…. Mmmmmm good! I love chamomile tea before I brave the crisp, fall air.

  80. I’m enjoying college football, sweaters, light jackets (no coats yet!) and making pumpkin break for my kids.

  81. I live in the mountains, so i LOVE the changing colors, cooler temps mixed with sun and all the holidays coming up! My & my girlfriends do a mamas Halloween party so I always look forward to our themed event and dressing up. Thanksgiving with friends and family is always something to look forward to also. What’s not to love about fall!!

  82. The colors of Fall, the crisp refreshing coolness outdoors and staying warm and cozy with a yummy pumpkin pie or pumpkin spice muffins or a Jewish apple cake baking in the oven. All the aromas of Autumn puts me in a very happy place!

  83. I love everything about fall! The weather cooling, leaves changing, birthdays, (my son and mine.) And just feeling cozy!

  84. My favorite thing is the cooler, crisper air. No matter how my day goes, I always have a smile on my face when I walk outside and that cool breeze hits me! Pure joy!

  85. Wearing boots and sweaters! But I live in central California and it’s still not Fall weather. It’s been in the 80’s and if you dress for Fall yet, you’re roasting by the afternoon!

  86. I love all things pumpkin at the grocery store. I love the colors of fall, but here in Northern California fall has been delayed to later November/early December. Halloween gas been in the 70s and 80s during the day.???

  87. My favorite fall thing is watching the kids play outside. The air is crisp & clean, and the kids seem to play a little smarter and with a little more abandon; I’m sure they’re enjoying the weather and know their days without coats, mittens, hats, and boots are numbered!

  88. I love being able to add more options to our menu. I get excited when fall comeS around and I can start making soup and other comfort foods like that again. Don’t get me wrong – I love making salads and grilling a lot in the summer, but the options are endless when the weather turns cool again. I don’t use the oven much in the summer, so it’s fun add that option back when it’s cool outside.

  89. Colorful fall leaves (which are SO good right now through Sardine Canyon), Friday night high school football games and hoodies just to name a few!

  90. The COLORS!! I love the colors that falls brings. Even though it swings the color wheel to the warm side of spectrum, you can always blend in cool colors to create the most spectacular presentation of fall. It’s just a cozy time of year!!

  91. Homemade applesauce!! We spend one whole day making it and then eat it for the next year. I also love the cool crisp air!!

  92. Those Voodoo chips just happen to be my favorite as well. My favorite thing about fall is getting to wear leggings and big shirts to hide my white legs and belly rolls. Maybe if I would lay off the Voodoo chips I wouldn’t have those belly rolls, right? I also love cooler days and seeing the farmers complete their harvest.

  93. Halloween, baked goods, sweaters, knee-high socks, open windows, cool nights, fire in the fireplace, popcorn, caramel apples, World Series, and hopefully RAIN in So. Calif.

    1. I love the smell of Fall scented candles and the cool air, after a hot and humid summer in Texas! Also, it’s time to get ready for getting together with more family members, including our newest granddaughter, Vivian, who turns 1 on New Years Day! Oh, and pumpkin spice everything!!!! I LOVE FALL ???

  94. I LOVE to be WARM! So Fall can be nice with the sweaters and fuzzy socks and the oven turned ON baking up something sweet and yummy on a Saturday morning while snuggling with the kiddos! Cool weather can bring families together and make for some very relaxing and enjoyable evenings!

  95. love all your favorites! my favorite fall thing is jeans/sweatshirts/flip flops. i am sad to say goodbye to my vionic flip flops when the weather gets too cold! thanks for the chance at your fun giveaway
    Happy Fall!

  96. I’m in Georgia, so I understand about the weather. I love fall when I finally have to use more than a sheet for covers at night. Snuggling under a blanket is so nice! In this case, I’m glad my husband is frugal and keeps the heater turned low at night. My husband LOVES Voodoo chips. I’ve ordered him boxes full of small bags from Amazon when we can’t find them in the stores here.

  97. We live in Virginia where when fall hits, you know. August comes with its full force of humidity and heat. September is a little less humidity and the heat drops down a little bit. But by October, we’re down to cool nights and 60-70 degree weather with 50% humidity. It has been so fun wearing my black leggings with my long denim shirt and my long black boots. I absolutely hate to be cold and it has been so nice and fall-ish! I also loved dinner last night which was cinnamon pancakes with spiced apples! Yum. It wouldn’t be fall in my house without a spiced pumpkin candle! I really do love the fall… and of course, all of Our Best Bites fall recipes on my menu.

  98. There is a large tree in my front yard and I always love it when the leaves turn in the fall. The leaves usually turn yellow but this year, for some reason, they have turned RED! It is glorious! I was actually late somewhere yesterday because when I pulled out of my garage I sat in my car for a least five minutes looking at that tree! I also am enjoying pumpkin chocolate chip cookies right now…

  99. I love all the seasonal vegetables – winter squash (especially butternut squash), sweet potatoes, apples, yum! I also love enjoy making ang eating more soups and stews.

  100. I’m loving my new hoodie I picked up in San Francisco over the summer (it’s been too hot to wear it until now).

  101. I’m in my third trimester right now and I’m LOVING the cooler weather! It makes me a little more comfortable. 🙂 And I love all the baking. Because all I want are pumpkin and cinnamon baked goods. 🙂

  102. High school football! My son is a senior this year and he just became the kicker for varsity-he’s played soccer for 13 years- and he’s AWESOME! I’m loving the hard work and commitment required of football and I LOVE the games! Go KADETS!

  103. Does a U.S. PO box count? Fingers crossed!!! I love the colours of fall, the crispness of fall, and the smell of fall. In the fall I love a cozy house, soup, hot chocolate and my family close by.

  104. My husband is currently fighting fire in the California wildfires, so I am finding the bachelor/bachelorette Australia my new best friend. My son and daughter in law found the link to watch it online and it is my new best friend at night. I. Love. It. So. Much! That and honeycrisp apples!

  105. I love pumpkins ! My porch is covered in them . I also like making pumpkin muffins, bread and smoothies! I also love seeing the leaves change colors

  106. I love SO many things about fall–it’s my favorite season! If I had to pick just one, it would be the North Carolina State Fair–and we’re going tomorrow as a family!

  107. I know it’s silly, but my favorite thing about fall is it’s cold enough I can sleep with my big heavy quilt. It’s seriously so heavy I almost can’t move but when you don’t have someone to tuck you in like a burrito anymore it’s the closest to that feeling you can get. 🙂

  108. I LOVE Fall and all it entails…boots and jackets, leaves changing, crisp weather, turning the fireplace on lots of soup!!

  109. I love when the weather gets cooler and I get in the mood to try new recipes and I love to cook soups. My family also has quite a few birthdays.

  110. In Arizona we really don’t have fall… the leaves don’t really change BUT, the nights have been in the high 60’s which is heaven when in the summer the nights are in the high 100’s. Just a hint of 60’s and out come the boots and sweaters! Have to endorse it while it’s here!!

  111. Finally cooler weather…honey crisp apples…Starbucks caramel apple spice (my own)… spicy smells…Costco’s Pumpkin Pie…

  112. I love the fall colors! We drove to Yellowstone a couple of weeks ago and are heading to Logan next weekend (we’re in Rexburg) and it’s been just beautiful with all the leaves! And I bought that giant bag of fudge and peanut butter popcorn at Sam’s last week and now know that that was a very bad choice, since I basically ate the whole thing by myself. And during the diet bet, too! ?

  113. Making Apple Butter in the crockpot…

    5 1/2 lbs apples, peeled and finely chopped
    4 cups sugar
    3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

  115. Fall fav? EGG NOG!

  117. My favorite things about Fall, The cooler weather, the smells change into something I can’t describe but I love it. Fall cooking! Baking with pumpkin, apples, and soup with fresh bread! YUMMY!

  118. I love fall for a few reasons. My birthday is in October and one birthday tradition we have is going to the zoo. With the cooler weather most of the animals are a lot more active and fun to observe. Also, fall wardrobe is my favorite! I would wear boots and sweaters all year round if I could.

  119. It’s a tough call – there’s so much to live about autumn! The colors, cooler weather, football, baking…. I’d have to say that Halloween is one of my most favorite things about fall. It’s the official beginning of months of holiday fun!

  120. I have three children living in Baton Rouge sure miss them and my grands…I love all the cool things you do with “Our Best Bites”. I would love any of these items your giving away. You are right Louisiana is hot and humid like South Carolina. Happy Fall!!

    I especially love the crisp nip in the air.
    Love love love autumn! It’s my favorite season!

  125. We’re suppose to have 90 degree weather into next week, and I’m so over it! Bring on the fall weather! I love all the traditional fall things: burning candles, wearing plaid flannel, and pumpkin flavored everything!

  126. This fall I’ve been enjoying a cup of Market Spice cinnamon orange tea most mornings. I didn’t feel like drinking it in the summer, but it just seems right this time of year.

  127. My favorite thing about fall is all the apple, maple, and pumpkin treats. Right now I’m really loving my pumpkin coffee.

  128. I love sitting on the porch swing in the evenings with a cup of cider and enjoying the crisp Fall air. That adorable mug would hold cider quite nicely 😉

  129. My favorite food item of fall is pumpkin! Pumpkin cookies, pumpkin pie cake, baked pumpkin oatmeal and pumpkin pie!

  130. The leaves, the cool mornings and warm afternoons, and the doors and windows open all day long….also, this has nothing to do with fall, but I’ve just found an amaaaaazing Thai restaurant in our tiny town and it has the best yellow curry.

  131. I just discovered pumpkin banana bread which definitely says fall but it’s so good that it might become a year round staple!

  132. I love apple cider! Even though it has been 80+ degrees still here in S.C. (Mother Nature is apparently going through menopause), I made myself a cup of hot apple cider one night last week. We just screened in our deck this summer, and I’m looking forward to enjoying some cooler fall weather on the porch…maybe watching a football game out there!

  133. My favorite thing about fall is the changing leaves and I love crunching leaves!! I just wish I didn’t have to rake the million leaves up in my yard!

  134. I live in Louisiana so, we have no fall! Only 3 summers and a chilly time. But, from what I hear- I’d love flannel, colorful leaves, crisp air, apples w/ caramel and everything pumpkin! Bathandbodyworks.com is the only fall we get! Please save me!!!!

  135. I love the leaves changing. We live in Salem, OR and there are trees everywhere and my kinder yells, “Oh mom, did you see that one? It looks like fire!”

  136. It is still pretty warm where I live but I love the cool Fall mornings and being able to wear a light sweater while sipping coffee outside.

  137. The beautiful Y mountain full of fall colors, the crisp air, football, hot chocolate and cozy fleece blankets to cuddle in with super soft socks and baking!

  138. I love the colorful leaves, cool evenings and warm afternoons BUT I especially love that it is hoodie season so I don’t have to suck it in anymore!

  139. I love long sleeves, crisp nights, pumpkins on the porch, Halloween candy, the thoughts of Christmas, and cinnamon scented everything, but most of all I love the reminder of giving thanks for all that we have.

  140. Growing up in Utah I loved the cooler temperatures and raking leaves to jump in! Now that I live in Arizona we don’t really have fall (it was 98 today!). But I love this time of year because soccer season starts and as crazy as it is, I love watching my kids play soccer.

  141. I love the cooler temperatures of fall. I enjoy cooking and eating heartier meals when it’s cooler which is perfect for the variety of seasonal produce available this time of year.

  142. October is my favorite month of the entire year!!! Fall TRULY arrives (even if the calender says it arrives in Sept.). …and it’s a celebration month for ME!!!! Birthdays and Fall…..what could possibly be better???!!! Ohhhh….maybe to win the OBB giveaway!!! 😉

  143. Well sadly I live in the desert so it hasn’t gotten to fall yet out here but what I am loving is slightly cooler weather and I have 4 month old daughter. 🙂
    First baby, her name is Faelynn!
    She is such a joy; obviously with any kid there are challenges but I wouldn’t trade it for anything! 🙂

  144. I love a cute fuzzy blanket draped on every couch and chair, a crackling fire and a basket full of slippers for guests by the front door . To drink, warm cider in a hollowed out apple with a cinnamon stick straw…amazing!

  145. Everything, I have always loved autumn. This year is extra special because we finally live somewhere the leaves really change into the vibrant reds, yellows and oranges that are so associated with this season.

  146. My favorite thing about the fall season is finding houses that are decorated for fall/Halloween. We get the kids dressed in their pj’s, warm blankets ad hot cocoa and drive through our town looking for the best decorated house, and to see what new additions people added to their décor. It is a great family night for us and we look forward to it every year.

  147. The colors of fall make my heart happy! The clothes of fall make me feel like I am being snuggled all day long. Add in the fact that October is my “Birthday Month” and how can I not be full of joy during this season?!?!?!

  148. Fall is my favorite time of year! Pumpkin bars, soups galore, and comfy sweaters with tall boots! All you need is a light jacket! ? It’s the perfect time of year!

  149. In the fall, I love our family’s pumpkin bread recipe. My mom always made this recipe when we were kids, and I make it all the time now. It is the absolute best ever (though I haven’t made OBB’s, so there’s my disclaimer?)!! It just smells and tastes like fall to me.

  150. Fall is the BEST! A chance for a new beginning with a perfect backdrop of all the most magnificent colors and scents that just warm the soul!

  151. The colorful leaves, crisp air, Halloween decor, apple crisp, and pumpkin patches just to name a few ?. Except Utah had unusually cold days and if felt like we when straight to Winter which was scary!

  152. Pumpkins!? I love them to decorate. Any color shape or size. If I see a pumpkin at the store or anywhere I have to buy one. I should really start to grow my own with the money I spend. Next year.

  153. Wyoming tends to go from kinda-summer to full-on-winter in a day. The green leaves freeze in the trees and never get to change colors. Sigh. We get these beautiful, sunny days though. Even when it’s freeze your eyelashes cold. Last night my daughter and I were walking through the grocery store and we got a wiff of the scented pine cones. . . Smelled like wassil. . .ooh, I love those fall scents, baking pumpkin and spiced drinks and crisp air!

  154. I live in Arizona, so Fall is slow to appear here as well, but in the mornings it’s so nice and cool (ish) that I leave my slider doors open for a few hours. It’s wonderful. P.S. I LOVE VooDoo chips, too!

  155. I adore talking walks with my family and hearing the leaves crunch beneath our feet. It’s something so simple but I can’t keep the goofy grin off my face every time we go.

  156. I love wearing sweaters, even though Arizona falls are usually pretty warm still. I also love Halloween and apples and pumpkin spice in the fall.

  157. I could use some more fall here in Gilbert, AZ~ it was 98 degrees here yesterday!! 🙁 I love (and terribly miss) the crisp air, the beautiful changing leaves, the smell of burning wood from the fireplace, the snow capped mountains, and of course pumpkin bread.

  158. SO much to love about fall,? but I particularly love being outside, hearing the crunch of leaves, smelling the scent of wood burning, breathing in the crisp air. Throw in a cute outfit and a pumpkin latte, my day is made!!!

  159. Ooh, nice! I am a committed summer hater, so absolutely anything and everything about fall is my favorite. Apples being at the forefront, and October vacations being right up there, too. Fun list! Especially the impractical socks!

  160. I love how baseball and football overlap. Also the colors of the leaves this year are stunning, but I do get a little sad when they start to fall off and we have bare trees until spring. It smells amazing and feels so crisp and fresh.

  161. I love EVERYTHING about Fall! Right now I’m enjoying my daily walks in the crisp morning air and in the evening lighting my BBW candles and enjoying my fall decorations.

  162. I like the cool weather when it finally gets here to Texas. The house smells so good with more baking and slow cooker meals making their appearance.

  163. Only one thing? I love everything about Fall! The typical pumpkins, crisp air, leaves changing, sweater weather and of course pumpkin spice and apple everything! But I have to say my current favorite thing about Fall is the slowdown… summer was a busy one! 🙂

  164. Fall has always been, and will always be, my favorite season. The crisp air. Apple picking. Pumpkin carving. Foliage. Halloween!! Weather just cool enough for sweaters and boots but not so cold you need a bulky jacket. Plus, my only child was born on October 30th…I can’t believe she will be 20 this year! I’m originally from Mass but I currently live in the Hudson Valley (Southern NY state, but north of the city), although both are very similar weather-wise. It just puts me in my happy place!

  165. I can’t wait to try a few of your favorite things! Thanks for sharing them with us!! My favorite thing about fall is hoodies! Whats not to love about snuggling up in blanket like material all day?? Anyone else?? haha!

  166. What I love most about Fall this year is the fact that I get one! We’ve spent the past 11 years moving due to my husband’s military career (FL, CA, MS, all the hotness!) and are finally back home in MN enjoying what Fall (in my mind) should be!

  167. I just moved and am absolutely adoring this gorgeous fall weather. It has already snowed and the trees are breathtaking with their ever changing hues!

  168. Sweater weather is one of my favorite things about fall! I also love sleeping with the windows open while snuggling under a cozy comforter.

  169. One of my Fall favs I love the sleeping with windows open and blankets on. HItting all the Fall festivals in the area where I live. Love, love, love Fall.

  170. Those are wonderful gifts! I live in the Phoenix, AZ area and it is fall here but that still means daytime temps have been high 90’s but mornings are in the low 70’s-high 60’s!!!! GLORIOUS!!!!!!!!

  171. My favorite thing about fall is family. With kids back in school we aren’t traveling anymore and have more time to spend together doing activities. Pumpkin patches, Halloween parties, corn mazes, cookie decorating (a family tradition) and snuggling in with a good movie when the weather is too cold to be outside. The best time of the year in my opinion.

  172. I love taking my kids to the pumpkin patch to pick out our pumpkins and walk through the corn maze. Also went to a Haunted House last weekend and had a blast! And I can’t forget all the pumpkin flavored food! It’s the best!

  173. I love the annual trip to the pumpkin patch. The boys love playing in the corn and picking out their own pumpkins plus there’s yummy treats and goodies and hay rides, a corn maze and its a lot of fun. I look forward to it every year.

  174. I love everything about Fall! *dances* It’s the most wonderful time of the year! lol Two favorite things, we drove up to VT last week to leaf peep and it was glorious. Second thing is my new long sweater coat that I can’t WAIT for it to get cool enough to wear!!! It’s got a furry hood and I can’t wait to snuggle up in it.

  175. I love fall because it seems as though the entire month is always filled with family events. fall festivals. Pumpkin patches. We went to boo at the zoo last weekend. There just always seems to be something fun to do.

  176. My favorite thing about fall typically is the clothing! However this year the birth of my son is my favorite thing about fall.

  177. My favorite thing about fall is the cool evenings going to the park or for a walk, and taking the kids to the pumpkin farm! Also the thoughts of thanksgiving and Christmas ?

  178. My husband and I love everything about Fall! Family, football, pumpkins, baking, fun-size candy, Charlie Brown (which is airing tonight!)…there are so many things to love about Fall! ????

  179. I miss fall!! We’re up in Idaho and it feels like we skipped over fall this year. We’ve had snow a few times already. My favorite thing about fall is that the holidays are coming. People start spending more time with family and friends, we remember what we are grateful for, and cooking and baking become a major thing in our home. It’s definitely my favorite season!

  180. Fall seems to bring people together. Halloween brings the community together and it ramps up all the way til Christmas. It’s a special time of year!

  181. Fall is the start of birthday season here and we have a rule that when there’s cake in the house, we have cake every meal until it’s gone.

  182. I love the cool weather (though I hate the early snow here in WY). It’s so nice to go out on a walk and walk through the leaves. Even as an adults, I love crunching leaves ?

  183. I love EVERYTHING about fall. The smell of the air, the crisp mornings and evenings, football, hot chocolate, cozy blankets, sitting by a fire, and mine and two of my children’s birthdays are in the fall!

  184. Taking my 18-month-old to the pumpkin patch. He is obsessed with pumpkins for some strange reason? It’s wonderful and hilarious. Also, all things pumpkin/apple.

  185. I love that I’m finally out of the first trimester of pregnancy and can start making all the yummy fall foods. I haven’t been able to look at food blogs or recipes without getting queasy… but that misery is finally gone!!! And I’m so happy!!! So I’m back to following Our Best Bites and ready to start making soups, stews, and delicious baked goods!

  186. I love the sound of walking through the leaves on the ground! When the sun is shining and the leaves have changed colors – you can go for a walk in a sweatshirt and not overheat – it’s perfect!

  187. I love being able to open my windows and airing the house out. It’s kind of stinky with 4 boys/men in the family. )

  188. We are enjoying some beautiful fall weather so I have been hiking in the nearby canyons to take pictures of the gorgeous fall trees.

  189. So usually I have hated fall. I always preferred spring because I know that fall brings winter, and I really hate winter. This year I have been making a point to spend more time being active outdoors. I take a walk everyday on my lunch hour, and usually a walk or run in the afternoon after work. I have come to a new appreciation of fall. I live in a beautiful place with tons of fall colors on the mountains that I can walk to from my house. I have really loved fall this year because of this.

  190. I love the crisp feel of the air and the leaves rolling across the ground. Although I live in southern Utah so not much of a fall for us, gotta soak it up while I can!

  191. I have realized fall is my favorite season. So love having the door open part of the day and not running the ac or the heater.

  192. Honestly, I can’t say just one thing I love about fall. It’s my favorite! I love the cooler temperatures, the beautiful foliage, and the crisp, perfect apples! Fall in Virginia is absolute perfection!

  193. I love the Halloween decorations, thinking about making Christmas presents (but just buying them), pumpkin bread, hot cocoa, warm socks, and soup for dinner.

  194. Fall is my favorite!! I was born i October so my theory is that being a Fall baby is why ?. Where I live in California we don’t have true 4 seasons and it is just starting to be cool enough for soup weather!! Soup is my first thought when it gets cool ! Pumpkins , fresh crisp apples and a good book finish up a good Fall day!

  195. My kids are on fall break and for once Indiana weather has cooperated and given us Fall weather this week! Favorite fall activity so far is going to a pumpkin patch/fall festival with the kids, coming home to carve pumpkins and roast pumpkin seeds.

  196. It means Christmas is coming!! Also, The air feels clean and refreshed and the sunsets are amazing! I’m sure the sunrises are too but I certainly never seem them. ?

  197. The sound of the rain on the roof and the cooler temps make it much easier to sleep at night. I also just love the colors of the leaves on my morning walks. WA in the Fall is So beautiful!

  198. My favorite thing is getting ready for thanksgiving and Christmas. My adult kids get to come home and we have lots of birthdays to celebrate.

  199. My favorite thing about Fall is that my boyfriend and I just got a retriever/lab mix puppy named Poppy!! I has been our dream to have a dog and we FINALLY got one! She’s 2 months old and we are in love <3

  200. i recently discovered pumpkin spice chai tea latte at starbucks. it’s like PSL times infinity. it’s great.

  201. The ubiquitous pumpkin spice flavors and scents. Oh, and caramel apples. They seem more welcome in the fall. Wow, it’s hard to narrow it down to one favorite thing. Aside from food flavors, I love the end of the dog days of summer and enjoy the crisp air while I sip cider cozy in a new sweater.

  202. My birthday, wedding anniversary and son’s birthday are all in fall, making it feel like a mom-stop season of reflection and celebration.

  203. Getting to wear jeans and boots! We are finally feeling some fall weather in Southeast Missouri. Also pumpkin muffins or bread.

  204. I LOVE sweater weather and the beautiful colors and cooler weather and life seems to slow down just a little. Really, love everything about it! ??. Thanks for the chance to try these fun items! ?

  205. I love making soups and going to pumpkin patches. I love the excitement of the coming holidays 🙂 and I love snuggling my baby and my husband even MORE.

  206. I’m enjoying bringing out the cozy blankets in the evenings! And candles, which I never burn in the summertime.

  207. My favorite thing about fall right now is that I can finally wear pants, long sleeved shirts, and booties! Fall starts late here so the leaves are just starting to change and I love that too.

  208. I love that’s it’s cool enough to wear a new sweater and new boots but warm enough to be outside to enjoy the glorious colors and clear blue sky.

  209. I have always loved fall. We moved this year to NC from chicago, where fall never lasted long enough for me! I am loving the gradual onset of fall where I get a chance to breathe it in instead of missing out on the week or two of amazing fall Chicago gets.

  210. When the golden-colored sunlight shines through the changing leaves. That’s the best. And our farmer’s market has the most amazing diversity of squashes, pumpkins, and gourds- I’m going to try them all!

  211. I love sweater weather, leaves changing color, hot cocoa with marshmallows, curling up in a chair with a book and my snuggle, and the bugs dying/sleeping. I <3 fall!

  212. I am loving my Fall pumpkin spice caffe latte Shakeology these day and I love love love the bright fall leaves in the Pacific Northwest!!!

  213. I’ve been loving our high school football season! Sadly, tomorrow night is the end of the season. Time to settle in and start baking I guess!

  214. The cooler weather has me in the cooking and baking mood. Made homemade rolls and beef stew yesterday. Windows open and a pumpkin candle burning, finally feeling a little like fall. I’ve been off work this week and have had great weather here in Illinois.

  215. Today I would have to say that my favorite thing about fall is the leaves. Everything about them. I just spent the day outside with my family and I took in as much of them as I could. I collected fallen leaves of every color and enjoyed the crunch as I walked over dried ones. I closed my eyes and listed to the leaves rustle in the wind and breathed in deep the smell of fall. It was magic.

  216. I love sweater weather, pumpkin roll pancakes, Better Homes & Gardens scented wax cubes (*Fall into Autumn and Crisp Fall Leaves), and hot chocolate Fridays!

  217. Where do I begin with Fall favorites?! Cooler weather in the AZ desert for sure – which includes kids playing outside. Cooking and eating soup is definitely up there too! Wearing sweaters and closed-toe shoes is always a fun change too! PS Those Voodoo chips are A-mazing!!!

  218. Fall is my absolute favorite time of year! From the changing colors to the crispness in the air. My favorite thing to do is go camping in the fall. Nothing beats sitting around the campfire with your loved ones.

  219. My favorite things about fall; cooler temps, wearing my hair down and not needing it off my neck, sweaters, baking, soup, breads, colors of the leaves. No more bugs!

  220. My favorite thing about fall is definitely Halloween, but I also love all the fall book releases and re-watching all our favorite creepy movies!! ?

  221. I am loving the sound of leaf crunching this fall. My two-year-old pointed it out to me on a walk the other day and it reminded me to live in the moment and take in the small details.

  222. I LOVE that it has gotten cooler in the mornings! I live in Alabama and the all day ‘cool’ weather is not supposed to hit for another week or two. So, I eat it up in the mornings! I have no problem wearing my warm cozy clothes to take my son to school in the morning, just to change mid day so I don’t suffer a heat stroke and pick my son up from school in a tee, capris and flipflops. We have both season clothes out right now and will take whatever we are given! Fall in the morning, Summer in the afternoon! My daughter changes clothes 5 times a day (seriously. she’s three.) so I just change right along with her;)

  223. I love that the weather is finally cooling off and I feel like I have an excuse to BAKE! Plus, I’m a lover of all things fall flavored (apple, pumpkin, etc.) so there is no shortage of delicious recipes to experiment with. Fall is definitely my favorite season ❤️

  224. This fall I’m loving exploring our new town’s fall fun with my family. We moved a few months ago to near Charleston, SC, so we’re just getting our first taste of autumnal weather, too!

  225. I love pumpkin spice flavored everything! ? Pumpkin spice desserts, candles, drinks, lotions, etc. Also knee high boots and wearing layers. We haven’t gotten cool enough weather for those yet, but when it cools down I’ll wear them everyday.

  226. We too are in the Deep South and are thoroughly enjoying cooler weather this week! I had one child learning to ride a bike without training wheels and the other playing in the sprinklers. Fall here is the time for lots of playing outside!

  227. I love the food! Warm soups, yummy apples, and hot chocolate. I’m also a jacket addict. You can never have to many jackets!

  228. I’m loving the cool, crisp air, open windows at night, cozy fires, beautiful colors, wearing sweaters and boots! Fall is my favorite!

  229. I love the colors and snuggling up by a fire reading a good book. I love how excited my husband gets when it starts cooling off because it means hunting is here for him.

  230. Thanksgiving is what I love about fall. To me everything in September and October is leading up to Thanksgiving – the decorations, food, books, social studies and science lessons (I am a teacher). Roasted pumpkins seeds is my second favorite thing about this time of year. I make enough to eat well into the new year.

  231. I love it all! The cool breeze, pumpkins, the colors, that black and white popcorn, our 12th anniversary is on Sunday, there’s just not much I don’t like about fall. Except when we wake up to 6 inches of snow! (I’m in Idaho).

  232. I love the crisp feel in the air and the look outside too. You can tell there’s a change. And I love apple things-this year it’s apple butter in the instant pot. Yum!

  233. I love everything about fall! Cooler weather, fall clothes, pumpkin flavored everything, gorgeous color in nature, and Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday. But this year fall is extra special as I am awaiting the birth of my FIRST GRANDBABY in about three weeks!!! I am so excited I am ready to burst! <3

  234. My favorite thing about fall is the feeling that I can finally indulge in my love for soup! As much as I love it, I can’t convince my family that soup is a year-round food. Once those temps even dip a little bit soup is back on the table!

  235. Honestly I’m dreading winter so much I’ve been a bit angry at the cooler weather. But I have enjoyed switching up my dinner Ideas and watching the baseball playoffs.

  236. Ummm… everything? I love everything about fall! I guess top of the list would be crunchy leaves and crisp, cool air, warm comfort foods filled with yummy spices.

  237. Fall is my favorite time of the year! Hot chocolate with breakfast, soups for dinner, and snuggling with kids before bed! The smell in the air and falling leaves makes me happy!

  238. I too love in Louisiana and when the cool air finally arrives, it’s like a new beginning. Everything seems so much brighter and clearer.

  239. I’m from your home town of Cache Valley and I love soaking in the beauty of the fall foliage, especially on scenic drives through Logan and Sardine Canyons. And “ditto” to all the items on your fall favorite list!

  240. I love that the weather finally cools down. We live in the desert ?, and when the temperature finally get below 100, it’s so nice!

  241. Unlike my 2 sisters and mother, I’m not much of a crafter. But this year my favorite thing has been doing simple crafts with my 2 oldest kids while their new baby sister is napping. It’s been so nice to have time to give them my attention and get them excited about holidays and seasons! It also helps us get into the fall spirit since it’s still 95 degrees here in Arizona! ?

  242. I haven’t had a really good fall since moving to a Texas, it’s one of my favorite times of year so I make the inside of my house feel like fall even though it’s still 90 outside. I sell baked goods at the local farmers market and everyone loves homemade pies and pumpkin rolls and caramel popcorn this time of year.

  243. My favorite thing this fall just happened… my son got married! It was a beautiful fall day with a little bit of rain sprinkled in, lots of family and friends! Wonderful.

  244. I love all of the beautiful colors of autumn. I just drove home from work and was amazed how beautiful the trees are. The colors are especially striking when the sky is a gorgeous blue. I also love everything pumpkin and apple.

  245. Oh my gosh, my favorite thing about fall right now is that it is ACTUALLY HERE!!! I’m in GA, and we just now got our cool temps. So my family and I are finally enjoying roasting marshmallows at our little fire pit in the back yard! ?

  246. Living in AZ, we don’t get much of a fall. I love thinking about and planning Thanksgiving. By the time the end of November rolls around, it’s the perfect temperature to eat outside!

  247. I love the cooler weather. It doesn’t really cool off until November in Phoenix but it feels great when it does.

  248. I love my fall clothes so much! Bring on sweaters, hoodies, boots, and jackets! And I’m loving all the trees in my yard are red, orange, and yellow!

  249. My favorite thing about fall is going for a drive through the mountains. The bright leaves against a blue sky make me so happy!

  250. Fall is still a few weeks away here in Phoenix (?), but I know it’s getting close when I can wear jeans and a long sleeve tee with my converse without dying! Fall is my fave and it’s been so hard to give it up down here in the desert! I need ALL the seasons! ?

  251. I love being able to go for a run in this amazing crisp fall weather!!! Also loving warm apple cider, I think I could drink like 5 cups a day!!

  252. Nothing elevates my mood better than a drive to gawk at fall trees! The different colors are so majestic And coupled with crisp fall air, yummy!!

  253. I love that Fall is the beginning of family time and holiday time. Here in Arizona we’re finally coming out of summer hibernation and can enjoy the outdoors!

  254. I like the cool days & cooler nights of fall. The changing leaves, the fall flowers. After a busy harvest time, canning wasn’t freezing, fall is rather bad like the ‘calm before the storm ‘ of the busy holiday season

  255. The thing I’m looking forward to this fall is taking my son to his first haunted house. He is so excited, and I am thrilled to watch the snot get scared or of him (he’s 12). Mwah ha ha ha….

  256. I love my brand new twin grandbabies that were just born this Fall. Crisp chilly mornings turning into warm days so I can wear a sweater or not!

  257. It’s so hot in California it doesn’t feel like fall but I love hearing all the kids tell what they’re going to be for Halloween.

  258. I love everything pumpkin. Blizzards(DQ) Costco pumpkin pie are my favorite. ?Finally getting my Fall clothes and boots out although, here in AZ, it was 97 today. ?.

  259. I love the anticipation and build-up to the holiday season. Just knowing that soon Christmas will be here makes me happy!

  260. Wearing sweatshirts! And being able to turn on my oven without making my house feel like 1,000 degrees. Bring on the bread baking

  261. II love my Missouri falls. I love experimenting with new Pumpkin bread recipes, watching the leaves turn clothes. I also love Bath and Bodyworks pumpkin latte and marshmallow spice spray and lotion. It smells so delicious. My other favorite thing. My birthday I just celebrated in October.

  262. Hands down fall is my favorite season! Apples, pumpkins, scarves, boots, weather, leaves changing…the list goes on…. I love fall decor and FOOD!!

  263. Hard to pick a favorite because fall the best! But I would say fall cooking and baking. Soups and pumpkin and apple goodies all the way!

  264. I’m loving the temperatures, leaves turning colors, gumbo and soups, sweaters, socks and outdoor camping. Now if the ASTROS can pull out the world series I’d be a happy “camper” along with this awesome giveaway.

  265. I love making Halloween costumes for my 6 kids. I know it’s so Pinterest Mom of me, but it really is one of my favorite fall activities. Topped only by actually going trick or treating!

  266. Not sweating when I bring in the groceries, get the mail, walk the dog, look outside 🙂 We’re in La too and this week has been a delight!

  267. Favorite thing about fall is coziness: cozy clothes, cozy food in a cozy crockpot, cozy snuggles under a cozy blanket. It’s just cool enough to get cozy!

  268. Fall is my favorite season of the year! The changing leaves, the colors, the chill in the air, flannel…just to name a few!

  269. Leaves changing colors, family around the fire pit, flannel and boots, pumpkins and squash. These are a few of my favorite fall things.

  270. I love the feeling of change. Every season does it for me but fall with it’s added colors and coziness is my favorite!

  271. I love the Autumn & Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin candles from BBW. My fall tradition is to bring out a glass pumpkin dish and fill it with candy corn mixed with cocktail peanuts. Yum!

  272. I love fall because I can whip out the boots and scarves. I love being able to eat soups and make pumpkin muffins, breads, waffles, etc. I love the fall veggies and the changing leaves

  273. I love the crisp, cool air and sunshine together! It just makes me happy. (Although, living near Seattle, we don’t often get that mixture – but when we do – it’s snazing!!)

  274. My favorite thing about Fall used to be the colorful leaves and driving through the canyon. However, living in TX the last 6 yrs I just appreciate a drop in temperature. It’s felt like Fall for the first time this week, but we can still wear shorts so not sure it technically counts, but I’ll take it ?.

  275. My favorite thing about fall is the weather. Something about the cool breeze makes my family of 5 just want to be outside every evening. It’s therapeutic and brings us closer together. It doesn’t matter what’s going on in any of our crazy lives, but falls beautiful colors and cool weather keeps my family united.

  276. I love the crispness the air gets in the fall! Right now I’m loving my Halloween decor though. I’m making my first deco mesh wreath and I just ordered an amazing corset Halloween tree with a witch’s hat and cape on it. I cannot wait for it to get here!!

  277. I wasn’t always a “I love pumpkin and fall everything girl” and I’m not sure what made me change but I am so that now! I LOVE pumpkin everything in the fall. I love the leaves changing color, falling and watching my kids play in them. When I was in college I remember one year coming home for Thanksgiving and the leaves were the most beautiful fall colors and most had fallen and it just felt like I was coming home. That sounds so silly. But it was one of the first times I appreciated fall and the feeling of coming home. Since then I’ve loved fall and the colors of the trees.
    Also, during my last pregnancy (my baby boy is now 10 months old) I had a craving for tacos one night and that was the one time I have talked my husband in to going out and buying me pregnancy craving food. So now our “thing” is “I love you more than tacos.” So the first time I saw that mug I got so excited! I NEED that mug! 🙂

  278. Hoodies, slippers, the colors in the trees, pumpkin and apple flavors, chilly nights and mornings, and those perfect afternoons full of sunshine and 70 degree temperatures.

  279. Heck, I love just having a real autumn. We recently moved from Alaska down to Idaho. It’s not Boston or anything, but the trees here are bigger and more colorful. So pretty! The seasons are more equal in length. The way the sun travels more overhead is different. I may always miss the familiar, stunning beauty of Alaska, but the charms of this new life are definitely growing on me!

  280. My favorite thing about fall is eating winter squash. Sweet Meat, Hubbard, Butternut, Acorn – any orange sweet squash is delicious! I love roasting it in the oven and then broiling some sugar on top. Yum! I just read how to cook it in the instant pot so that means I can have yummy squash in 8 minutes (plus the get up to pressure time which seems like forever!).

  281. Love the fall colors, making soups for dinner, the smell of the crisp air in the morning and snuggling in a cozy throw while snacking!

  282. My birthday is in the fall, which is awesome! But there’s something about the change in the air, nature, and my spirit. There’s just a good feeling everywhere! Plus the most beautiful season and everything Apple and pumpkin!

  283. I love the traditions and memories we recreate every year as a family!! One of our family traditions is to go to a straw maze or corn maze with our kiddos. We also make sure we go to the pumpkin patch and pick out our pumpkins. At the pumpkin patch we like to go to we play together. We play in the corn pit for a very long time, probably more than most. We ride tractor rides, we go down the huge slides they have built using hay bales, eat delicious cider donuts and fresh cut fries. It’s seriously a blast and our kids look forward to it every year and they talk about it for days!!!

  284. My Favorite part of fall, is the crunchy colors!!! Just started running a year ago, and had forgotten how much fun it is to crunch leaves ?! It’s hard to pick only one thing though, fall is my favorite season for so many reasons!!! ?

  285. Fall in New Mexico means the the aroma of roasting green chili wafting though the air. Beautiful. Crisp mornings, Balloon Fiesta with hundreds of hot air balloons filling the horizon each morning, the changing of leaves, being able to get out my down comforter…. I LOVE the fall.

  286. I love watching the leaves change colors, especially the trees on the mountains near our house. I also love collaborating with my kids as they choose their Halloween costumes.

  287. I feel you on the whole fall doesn’t really exist in the south (I’m in Texas). So for the last 9 years, the thing that really makes me feel like fall is football!!!

  288. Ahh, Fall is my favorite season! We just moved to South Dakota in August, so I get to experience the season in a new way with cooler temps (although it’s been in the 70s this week). I love the leaves changing colors, walking through the crunchy leaves with my kids, baking yummy treats, and burning fall scented candles. Truly the best season!!

  289. My favorite thing about Fall now is taking my son outside for a walk or to the pumpkin patch. He is our miracle baby and being able to watch him light up when he expereinces things is just incredible. From finding the perfect leaf (his new favorite outside item) to riding his little scoot bike. That crisp air, toddler laugh, occasional hard cider for the Mama and it’s a beautiful day!

  290. Hey Kate! I’m a Louisiana girl too and am LOVING the fall weather this week!!! Yay!! My favorite thing about fall is baking pumpkin and apple everything 🙂

  291. I love when the temperature cools down. I love the scent sweet cinnamon pumpkin from bath and body works. Every fall I use that scent in my house so that has become the unofficial smell of fall for my family.

  292. When I lived in Louisiana, fall was not my favorite season. It was spring (azaleas). But now that I live in the western US, fall is my favorite season. I saw a quote that said, “My favorite color is fall,” and I have to agree. This year the colors seem especially brilliant. It’s a bit of magic before the snow falls.

  293. My husband and I love those voodoo chips! Mmmm. My favorite thing about Fall is how eerie it is. Halloween is my favorite holiday by far, and the whole season is just a little spooky!

  294. Here in Southern CA it has been very un Fall like. It will be over 100 degrees next week. However, I’m determined to bring Fall into our lives. My favorite thing right now is to light a fall candle, play some music and bake some pumpkin bread.

  295. I grew up in Las Vegas where fall doesn’t actually exist, and so I love the fall weather here in Utah! The leaves here are the most beautiful colors!

  296. The Hello Fall candle is my favorite too! I burned through it in record time:) I love all things fall- the smell, the colors, the weather, and the sweaters!

  297. I love the crunchy leaves on campus, they are so beautiful and make walking between classes that much better 🙂

  298. Fall football! Something about cozy spirit sweaters, changing leaves, good (ie. not even pretending to be healthy) food, fun drinks, yelling until we can’t talk the next day, and snuggling up with my hubby – it all just puts me in a great mood and I can’t get enough! Who doesn’t love a reason to celebrate and be festive EVERY.SINGLE.WEEKEND. for a couple months?!

  299. Where I live fall sometimes brings 30 degree weather in the mornings. My nieces play soccer and often have games in the freezing cold. One of my favorite things about fall is watching these little 4 yr old munchkins all bundled up to the point that they waddle to the ball, fall as they try to kick it, and then literally lay there because they are like a potato bug on it’s back. They lay there kicking and screaming. It is very comical to watch. I know it sounds mean. But my husband and I joke about it being a fall tradition.

  300. My favorite things right now are apple cider and chrysanthemums. Our botanical gardens had a cider festival last weekend. They were selling fresh pressed cider and mums. I bought some mums, one in each color they were selling, yellow, red, purple, and orange.

  301. Fall is my favorite time of year, that may be because October is my birthday month!! I believe in celebrating all month long with my family! I am blessed to live in the southwestern part of NY where the beauty of the changing leaves shine through and we have crisp nights with warm days and a backyard with apple trees. Love fall!!

  302. I love the crunchy colored leaves all over the ground- I still stomp on them to hear them crunch ☺️ And hot chocolate!!! Mmmm!

  303. I live in western New York state so we get a really nice fall season usually. This year it’s still pretty warm – high 60’s and expected to be in the mid 70’s this weekend!! Tonight we are planning a campfire (with marshmallows of course)! I love apples, apple cider, warm quilts and cool nights. It has to be my favorite season.

  304. Everyday I love something different about the fall. Today, it’s too cold and windy to do anything besides stay in and snuggle up. I call that a win.

  305. The fresh and free apples from our new orchard this year have been the best! My little girls eat one every afternoon on our walk.

  306. I’m in South Africa so technically it’s spring here! It is hard to get used to! But my favorite thing when the weather turns cold is hot chocolate. Sometimes twice a day :). And I have a US address FYI. So count me in! Thank you!!

  307. I love that in 2 short weeks I will be getting married to my favorite person during my favorite season! Fall will always be my favorite!

  308. I love everything about Fall! I love when it finally gets cold enough for boots, leggings, and sweater weather. And Halloween is so fun, too.

  309. I like being able to turn the AC off and opening the windows. It gets a little chilly at night but it’s perfect sleeping weather. I also love Halloween.

  310. I love Halloween! I like to go a little over-the-top making/putting together costumes for my kids and doing fun/themed food for school lunches and Halloween parties. I also love having not having to run the furnace OR air conditioner…much. It feels so good to have low utility bills!

  311. Fall this year is so much fun. I have an 11 month old who is obsessed with pumpkins and leaves. I’m having so much fun watching him experience it!

  312. Currently my favorite thing about Fall is that No-School November is on the horizon. I mean there is still school, but between a week off for Thanksgiving, Veteran’s Day, and another no-school day here in Nevada, it feels like there’s no school. As a busy mom of 3 boys and a busy teacher to a room full of first graders, I’m counting down the days until November!

  313. Marching/Pep Band season. I love going to the high school football games and listening to my kids play in the high school pep band. No matter whether your team is winning or losing, the band is having a good time. Sunny, warm days followed by evenings that are crisp. The breeze coming from the river is infused with the smell of all the fall leaves that mingles with the smell of popcorn in the stadium. It’s just perfect.

  314. I love the sweet plums from the tree in my yard. I also love watching my boys compete in cross country races and being out in the cool, sunny afternoons.

  315. I love that the weather finally cools down and the leaves start changing colors, and that my kiddies are giddy about pumpkin patches and Halloween!

  316. Road trips to see Autumn-colored leaves
    Hiking with comfy boots
    Slouchy socks
    Camping or hanging out in a cabin in the mountains and a forest preserve, campfires, blankets, spiked hot cider
    Apple picking
    Brunches with eggs, apple jam and biscuits, fresh coffee
    Craft brew
    Planting lavender
    Live bluegrass

  317. I’m excited this fall on October 22, it will be my 1year anniversary married to my amazing husband! Just starting to see all the pretty colored leaves, cool crisp air reminds me of our wedding and how awesome it was! I can’t wait to enjoy other fall favorites Iike Carmel apples and apple cider!

  318. Love the slightly cooler weather the kids can finally play outside, living in Florida it has been a super hot summer.

  319. I’m loving the bright blue, crisp skies, the colors, and the fact that fall soccer is winding down for my 3 kids, because it’s getting COLD here in eastern Idaho. We had snow last night! Exciting times.

  320. I’m all about hygge! Have you heard of this? I’ve seen this term recently and it roughly translates to cozy. Soft sweaters and blankets, warm drinks by the fire…

  321. My favorite fall thing is this gorgeous metal wreath. I love putting it up in the fall. I wish I could post a picture. It is so beautiful! I love the changing leaves, cool weather and pumpkins!

  322. I like fall more because I get the enjoy the cooler crisp weather! The smell of fresh pumpkin spice! The thrill of being cozy and excited for the upcoming holidays!

  323. My four year old’s christmas- morning-excitement reaction when he saw the first bunch of leaves had fallen on the ground. “MOM! get me my shovel so I can make a pile!”

  324. We live in southern UT so we are just starting to see hints of fall. I love the crisp mornings, college football, hot chocolate, jazz music, halloween, and sweaters!

  325. Hot chocolate, hands down. My husband just brought me back Cadbury’s hot chocolate from England. I nearly died!!! I’d love to win, your fall favorites are incredible!

  326. I’m not really a fall fan (blasphemy, I know!), though I do love tall boots. We’re expecting our first baby in three weeks, so this will definitely be the best fall I’ve ever had!

  327. In Arizona, Fall is not what it is elsewhere. Right now, I’m loving that we just planted our winter grass and that I got to finally plant flowers like petunias. I actually had to wear a coat last night because it dipped to 72 degrees and I was cold!

  328. I’m halfway done with the semester! That means I’m getting closer to the time I can start my big quilting project (for myself, at long last!) Besides, fall is my most favorite season!

  329. I LOVE making soups & stews more often – heating up the kitchen with more homemade breads other carboliciousness, the sweet smell of changing leaves…and who doesn’t love putting on a fave sweater (or new one) for the first time??!!

  330. I love fall for all the normal reasons, cooler weather, fall colors, football etc. BUT I also love is because me and my 3 daughters birthdays are all in the fall! So it’s always a party!!!

  331. The crisp, cool air and the way it smells. Pumpkin, enough said. The changing leaves. Hoodies, hikes, fuzzy socks. Soup, stew, chili, and warm beverages like apple cider, tea, and cocoa.

  332. My witches tea, is my favorite thing about fall. I invite all the women I love, like, and tolerate and have them over for mocktails and treats. It’s usually about 75 people, and I chat with everyone for just a minute while I get them a drink. It’s a great networking event for moms.

  333. My favorite thing about fall is being able to wear cute jackets and sweaters and feeling cool weather. Oh yeah, and the leaves. And Halloween. And less yard work.

  334. I love that we’re actually getting a Fall here in Utah! Not just one week of it before the snow hits! Sigh, I love the crisp air and colorful leaves more than anything any other season offers for sure.

  335. Most years my family takes a fall drive; a simple day trip somewhere new. We enjoy the leaves, a walk, and always some delicious food. That is my favorite part of fall!
