favorite halloween candy / pretty much anything that has chocolate on it. do like carmel apples
in the fall i like to decorate a little bit if i'm home. i look forward to spending some future halloweens with my little punkin tucker
favorite costume / i've worn so many but i was a clown the year i was pregnant with my son and i made the face out of plaster parris. it was quite the ordeal. and a clown costume out of white sheets with BIG dots all over it. was pretty cute. i've also been ragady ann, a mummy, a trench coat guy, lots of fun things! i miss dressing up. someday i will surprise my children and come up some halloween and they won't even know i'm there. too funny that would be.

1) Chili is really good for fall...with cheese and sour cream on top and saltine crackers to dip in. I love hot dish too. Would I be a Minnesotan if I didn't?
2)My favorite kind of Halloween candy is anything that is chocolate. Oh wait, that isn't just limited to Halloween, that's any time of the year. I do love peanut butter cups, twix, milky way and almond joy.
3)Some fall traditions that I do in the fall are going to the apple orchard, going to bonfires, having Booya (a long slow cooked soup for those that don't know), watching the World Series and getting up to the North Shore to look at the leaves change by your neck of the woods. :)
4)I've never really liked Halloween for some reason so I can't really remember my costumes. I did dress as a Geisha once and I really liked that costume.

PS: I think your pics are already fabulous looking - great stuff!

favorite meal: homemade chicken wild rice soup with homemade bread

candy: well, anything! i LOVE candy corn!

tradition: going on hikes, the applefest, anything pumpkin, i.e. candles, cookies, pies

costume: the year i was a witch and i won top costume at the finland halloween party! yay!


Favorite fall meal: Hmmm, broccoli cheddar soup! But I love it always!

Fave candy: Twix!

Tradition: going to the pumpkin patch and picking out a pumpkin.

Fave costume: I don't even remember mine! Sad huh?


-Fall meal: Gotta go with Chili
-Halloween Candy: Don't even get me started. We are going through multiple bags each week. I like them all. When pressed to choose, I'm going with Twix.
-Football is the only fall tradition around my house - do you know of a pumpkin patch around here?
-I think being Ron Weasley was my favorite costume.


1. what is your favorite fall meal? beef stew/roast in the crock pot
2. what is your favorite kind of halloween candy? used to be bite sized snickers - til the peanut allergy struck!
3. do you have any fall traditions? go to the pumpkin patch
4. what was your favorite halloween costume you ever wore? when i was 5 my mom dressed me and my dad up as aunt jemima. and we won whatever contest there was at the ICC building! ha ha!

Fave candy: peanut butter cups, Dots
Fave tradition: going to an orchard/pumpkin patch
Fave costume: Mine were pretty unoriginal as a kid. Once in college I dressed up as a condom- that was pretty funny!


Fall is, by far, my favorite season!

I always crave chicken and dumplings.
Since I don't like chocolate, I always look forward to jolly ranchers!
Don't really have any fall traditions, we always used to go up north, but not so much these days.
I was tinkerbell one year for halloween, and it was so much fun!


For Leah (who I do not know personally). The year I dressed up like Medusa someone asked if I was MiMi from Drew Carey. Must've gone a little overboard on the green eyeshadow. Never mind the fact I had snakes in my hair....
Thought that was all too ironic after reading your comment :-))

Mrs Pop

what is your favorite fall meal? Hands down, roast in the crock pot!

what is your favorite kind of halloween candy? Reese's peanut butter cups.

do you have any fall traditions? Decorating for Halloween, visiting the pumpkin patch, hosting Thanksgiving, lots and lots of football watching.

what was your favorite halloween costume you ever wore? This is a tie: The witch costume my mom made me and I wore for two years in a row and the fairy costume, for which my father made me wings and a magic wand (he made this incredible star out of a coat hanger).


1. White Lightning Chili..nice and spicy!
2. Peanut Butter Cups without a doubt
3. Visiting the Apple Orchard with my girlfriends and taking the kids to the pumpkin patch
4. I had GHETTO costumes growing up. If I had to pick one, I'd say Little Red Riding Hood.


It's funny b/c even though I "enjoy" fall, it's not one of my favorites. I find it rather depressing; everything dying, it's a preview of the long, cold months ahead.

BUT, this year, I'm really "in the mood". I've been wanting to bake with apples, cook soups and chili...
looking forward to raking leaves and taking pictures. (Not my leaves, we have baby trees. So we'll have to go to the park!!)

Enough rambling: My answers to your questions:
1. Any type of soup. And homemade bread. I make a really good vegetable soup called "Confetti Chowder", so that would probably be my first choice.
2.I love "Bit O Honey". And I'll ALWAYS steal a Reeses Peanut Butter Cup (or two, or three).
3.If we are back where I grew up for any weekend in October, we go Hiking in a place called "Wildcat Mound" (central WI). It's where Tim proposed to me, and it's beautiful with the changing leaves...
4. I was Medusa one year in college. I HAND STITCHED a bunch of rubber snakes into a black wig...took me hours but looked AWESOME! I then dressed my (now husband) boyfriend up to look like Mimi from the Drew Carey show. Not really a "match" that evening, but we both looked good!

3. My sister has a Pumpkin Carving Contest and Heath and I hold our annual Murder Mystery Party.
4. Oh, this one is so hard! I have way too many. Probably Cinderella or Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. Oh and I liked my Nurse one too and Pocahantas. haha All of them! :)


Favorite Fall meal: spicy white chicken chili.
Favorite Halloween Candy: Reese's peanut butter cups.
Our fall tradition is to go to the apple orchard to pick apples and pumpkins and of course, to take a hay ride.
My favorite halloween costume was for sure the Purple Crayola Crayon. My sister was a blue one! I must find a picture of us to show Emily, she would die.
