The Autumn Tag!

That Weird Girl Life
It's that wonderful time of year: autumn, or as we say in the states, "fall." (I know, that's such a weird name for autumn once you start thinking about it. It's like Americans were all, "hmm. We know we want to be different from those Brits but we can't take all of the U's out of the word 'autumn' so that wouldn't work. Oh hey, look at all of those leaves falling! Wait a minute...") It's my favorite season and I love everything about it: the crisp, cool weather, the falling leaves, the sweaters, pumpkins everywhere, Halloween! It honestly is such a fun kickoff to the holiday season. It's cool but not cold and you're not as stressed about Halloween like you are with Thanksgiving and Christmas (ugh, the stress of Christmas is just awful!). It's honestly just such a perfect season and I can't think of a better way for a blogger to share their love of autumn than with an autumn tag!

The rules are simple: answer the questions, tag others to continue the tag, provide the questions for them, and thank the person who tagged you! Easy-peasy!

Thank you so much to Frankii over at quitefranklii for tagging me! Check out her amazing blog and follow her on social media cause she's awesome!

My Answers:

What Signifies Autumn to You?

The changing of the seasons and orange, red, and yellow fallen leaves and that wonderful earthy, damp smell they give off just symbolizes fall perfectly to me.

What Is the Best Way to Spend a Rainy Day?

If I could spend every single rainy day just reading and snuggled up on a comfy chair or couch while listening to the rain outside, I would! Bonus points if I have a cup of hot chocolate to drink while reading said book!


What Is Your Most Fond Autumn Memory?

I think my favorite autumn memory is probably of when I was a kid and I raked up all of the leaves in the backyard and jumped into the pile and tried to cover myself completely in leaves. I was not successful, but I remember having a grand ol' time. But then I think I found a bug among the leaves and skedaddled out of there, haha. It was fun while it lasted though!


What is Your Favorite Autumn Scent?

I love love love the smell of fireplaces or fire-pits on a cold autumn night. It just smells so cozy and warm and reminds me of nights with friends and family celebrating the holidays.

What Are You Most Excited About This Autumn?

I'm always so excited for Halloween when autumn arrives! To me, Halloween signifies the start of holiday season and it's my favorite holiday ever, so Halloween is always the highlight of fall for me.

What Is Your Favorite Autumn Song?

I don't know if I have a favorite autumn song! I know there are a few Halloween songs and Christmas songs, but I don't think I have a favorite autumn song. They have so many dang songs about winter and Christmas, they should have more about fall! Michael Buble, get on my level!

What Is Your Favorite Autumn Movie?

I could always say the very first Harry Potter movie but I love You've Got Mail because #1: it's a classic and wonderful rom-com, #2: Tom Hanks is just delightful in it, as he is in most things, and #3: the movie starts out in New York City in the fall, and Meg Ryan is describing how much she loves the start of fall and the smell of school supplies. The start of the movie is the perfect representation of that happy feeling I feel in the fall, the hopefulness that comes from the changing of the seasons and the excitement of things to come.

What TV Show Are You Most Looking Forward to This Autumn?

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, hands down. There aren't a lot of TV shows that I was super excited for this fall, but after how the last season of CEG ended, I was desperate to see how things were going. Seriously, if you haven't watched Crazy Ex-Girlfriend yet, you should. It's so so good! I've actually lost count on how many times I've talked about it on this blog, so if that's not enough of a recommendation for you, than I don't know what else is!

What Is Your Favorite Autumn Color?

I love a dark maroon, like the deep reds on fallen leaves. I think it's just such a stunning color on pretty much anyone, plus I think it's also very timeless and won't go out of fashion anytime soon (no offense mustard yellow!).

What Is Your Most Loved Outdoor Autumn Activity?

Does sitting around a fire-pit with friends count as an activity? Because if so, that's my favorite! I love gathering around a glowing fire-pit on a cold night with friends and just chatting about nothing and everything.

What Is Your Favorite Autumn Fashion Trend?

Cozy and warm sweaters! Nothing says fall like when you finally break out your thick, comfy sweaters in fall colors or even muted pastels or grey. So cute!

If You Could Have a Familiar/Spirit Animal, What Would It Be?

A cat, hands down! What better way to celebrate fall than with the ultimate symbol of a witch's familiar? (Plus I'm totally a cat person, so it all works out!)

Name One Place You Wish You Could Visit During Autumn?

Speaking of witches, I think it'd be fun and very interesting to visit Salem, Massachusetts to visit this historical site. It's such a sad part of American history, but incredibly fascinating. And nothing says autumn as much as witches and the fall foliage that you know New England has practically trademarked!

What Is Your Favorite Photo You Took Last Autumn?

The picture doesn't have to be of me, right? Does it? Okay, well how about I post two, one of my very favorite and the other of my favorite with me in it? Deal? Deal!

The first is of the giant Hogwarts model at the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London which I went to last September. This is probably my favorite picture of the trip (and probably one of my favorite outings of the trip), just because the picture turned out so well considering I absolutely suck at taking photos.

That Weird Girl Life
And this is my other favorite picture from the trip, except this one has me in it (well, obviously, it's a selfie). This one is from that same trip to England last autumn but this picture was taken at Stonehenge (not pictured in selfie). Look at my happy but very, very jet-lagged face! And that wind swept hair! Ugh, can I go back to the UK already???

That Weird Girl Life
What Are You Being This Halloween?

I love Halloween, but I honestly haven't dressed up in about two years! No one I know has really given a Halloween party in a while, so I've mainly just been spending the money I would have spent on making a Halloween costume on Halloween decorations. I'm a bit obsessed... But I hope I get invited to a Halloween party next Halloween so I can finally wear a costume again!
