All About Fall
1. What is your favorite Fall activity?
Going to Football games for sure! My dad has season tickets, and we go to as many games as we can :)
In 2010, we went to a game on Halloween, and we came up with some creative costumes... We went as Hugs and Kisses. Ya know, Xs and Os? Yep. hahah. We think we're so clever ;)
2. Do you follow a football team? if so which one and why?
You may not know this about me, but I love football. Obsessed might be a better word. I follow two teams. Both for different reasons. One: the Arizona Cardinals of course. Going to Cardinals games with my Dad got my love for football going. They will always be my number one! Two: The Baltimore Ravens. It might seem kind of random, and really it is. But here's why.
That, my friends, is Anquan Boldin and I in 2008. Meeting him is still one of the best moments in my life. He is one of the greatest people, EVER. My Dad took my friend Brooke and I to a Diamondbacks baseball game, and I saw him walk in. I was excited but figured he'd leave as soon as he could after the game. But I was wrong. He stayed for who knows how long after the game to take pictures and sign autographs. And his son, so cute, the little guy loved the attention, as you can see ;) The people working at the stadium offered to escort Anquan and his son out, but he wasn't having any of it. He took pictures with all of us, and I will forever be grateful. He was one of my favorite players before this event, but after and forever more, he will be my favorite. When he was traded to the Ravens, I followed him. And watching all their games, I fell in love with the Ravens. So now I have two football loves.
3. What is something fun about Fall in your area?
Obviously, football games. And I don't really know of any other activities in Arizona.. I'm definitely going to look into that! I do know there are some pumpkin festivals, maybe we'll check one of those out this year :)
4. Fav Fall outfit staples?
It doesn't get all that cold here in Arizona during the Fall season, but scarves are definitely one my favorite staples. A sweater is another fun one.
5. Thing you are looking forward to most about this coming Fall season?
The cooler weather... I'm telling you, this heat is not something you get used to. It sucks the energy out of you like nothing else does. And, our first wedding anniversary is in October. So I'm pretty excited about that.
6. Favorite Fall holiday? Traditions?
I would have to say Thanksgiving. Umm mashed potatoes anyone? As far as Thanksgiving traditions, I don't really have any. My parents divorced when I was really little, so I was back and forth over the holidays. No matter what though, we always try to celebrate Thanksgiving with family somewhere. Last year we were in Louisiana, this year we'll be in Nevada with my mom.
