The Sweater Weather Tag & Liebster Award 2015

Since Nox hasn't gotten many questions yet, I'm going to give him one more week to get a few more before putting up his interview. Nox is a main character from my NaNo novel. If you'd like to ask him a question check out the post.

All righty I have two tags today one because I really really want to do it (Thanks Aimee @ To The Barricade! for making it an open tag) and the second one four people nominated me for! It's the third Liebster Award I've done and I've already done so many random facts tags and forty-four questions will make a very long tags so I'm just going to pick and choose my favorite out of the questions Adriana @ The Librarian Files, Andrea @ A Life of Pages, Annika @ Writer and Proud, and Rachel @ Water and Pen asked me. Be sure to check out their blogs! And thank you for nominating me! 

The Sweater Weather Tag

The Questions:

Favorite Candle Scent:
Oh this is a hard question for me. I looooove candles. I stocked up on a ton for NaNoWriMo. I really like this candle scent I recently found at Bath and Bodyworks called Flannel and this Edgar Allen Poe candle I found downtown. 

Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate? 
Tea! Teeeeea! If you have read this blog for any amount of time you would know it is tea!

What's the best fall memory you have? 
Goodness I have many. I think some of my favorite are going to the Hunger Games movie midnight showings with my friends. This year will be the last. Sadness. My friend's theater has a cosplay competition (which I've been winning every year and getting Hunger Games character stand-ups and free movie tickets) and an arrow shooting contest and Trivia questions and all this awesomeness. I have won many prizes.  ^ ^

Best fragrance for fall:
Woodsmoke fires, chili, and pecan pie. How could I pick one?

Favorite Thanksgiving food: 
I really love this gelatin dessert I/my aunt makes. It's called Mandarin Orange Salad and has orange juice and pineapple and lemon jello in it with a vanilla cool whip topping. It's. So. Good.

This is one I made.
What is autumn weather like where you live? 
I live in the Atlanta, Georgia area so the weather is in the highs of the 6os or 70s F and can get to the 30s. The leaves turn bright colors and there's usually a lot of rain, but I love the dry crisp days.

Most worn sweater: 
Hmm ... I have this cool swamp green one with long sleeves that come over my hands that I enjoy.

Football games or jumping in leaf piles? 
I don't do football so let's jump in leaf piles! Whoo hoo!

Skinny jeans or leggings? 
Skinny jeans are my bestest friend.

Combat boots or Uggs? 
Uggs. I have a brown pair but they have a permanent stain on the toe from the drool of my cousin's dog. Oh well. I still like 'em.

Is Pumpkin Spice worth the hype? 
Eh. I like Pumpkin-flavored stuff, but I'm not as bananas about it as various chain restaurants seem to think I should be.

Favorite fall TV show: 

Love this gif.
What song really gets you into the fall spirit? 
Anything Of Monsters and Men.

Hats or scarves? 
I really like both, but I'd pick scarves over hats by a hair. I really like all the ways you can style them.

What's your #1 favorite thing about fall? 
Cooler weather. Georgia summers are blistering hot and gets me all around more stressed. Cold weather is my natural habitat.

6.) Favorite Bible verse?

1 Corinthians 1:27-29

but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are, so that no man may boast before God.

Well at two years old I war coloring with Roseart markers and watching Pocahontas and I decided I wanted to be an Indian too and colored myself. First and last time I'd ever done anything like that. My mom was very cross--while trying to hold in laughter. 

Kokoum inspired me. I even tried to do those bear claws on my chest.
