Sunday Social : Fall Favorites!
Is it seriously August 5 already? School starts in two weeks, gag me! But for the time being, it's about time for another Sunday Social with Neely and Ashley! I think this is probably my favorite link up for the simple fact that it is always different! Plus I feel like I learn a lot about the other bloggers who are participating just by their answers!
1. What is your favorite fall activity?
I would have to say my fave activity for fall is decorating the house! I think it is so fun to get pumpkins and decorate them and to have cute leaves everywhere! Plus I really love the colors of fall.
2. Do you follow a football team? If so which one and why?
Duh! I love football, (it's probably my second favorite activity of fall.) I of course follow my high school football's team from the school I graduated, probably because Richard played varsity there and I went to all his games so it just stuck. And then I watch NFL like it's outta control. My family is football obsessed. My dad and older brother have season tickets to the Kansas City Chiefs so they are always either at a game or watching one. I personally follow the Miami Dolphins! I don't know why I love that team so much but since I was little I have always loved them and it just stuck!
3. What is something fun about fall in your area?
I love the spirit people get into about football here. It is like a way of life around here and if your kid is in football people just get so wrapped up in it. It's a tradition for the senior girls at my school to paint their stomachs for our cross-town rivalry game. The other team's senior boys wear kilts and paint themselves too. Before all the football games they always have a huge cookout with tailgating and after the games the drumline plays outside the stadium for the fans. It's just a really fun experience.

5. What are you looking forward to most about the upcoming fall season?
I'm most certainly ready for the weather to cool down. A 70 degree day sounds absolutely amazing. I detest winter and love heat but Kansas is in such a drought right now and we really need a break. I'm also looking forward to the leaves changing color, it's one of my absolute favorite things about fall.
6. What is your favorite fall holiday? Do you have any traditions?
I would have to say Thanksgiving. My family usually tries to go out to eat on Thanksgiving (obviously that is like really ludicrous, so I talk them into making dinner.) Most of the time I will cook the full meal for dinner and we just hangout. If my family isn't doing anything I will go over to Richard's for their Thanksgiving. The only tradition we have is putting up the Christmas tree the weekend after Thanksgiving!
