Can you believe I haven’t said a word about it being fall. I know, major blogger sin. But, I didn’t want to bombard you with the obvious.

I will say though, fall is one of my favorite times of year. Not because of all the pumpkin desserts. [With my family, we choose sweet potato over pumpkin anyways.] And, not because of the cute fall outfits either. But, I am a sucker for oversized sweaters and boots.
Fall is one of my favorite times of year because of what it means… Winter is right around the corner! It’s almost that time to be with loved ones and stuff your face just for the fun of it. I love the symbolism behind the fall/winter holidays. Cliche Hallmark moments are my ‘thing’.
Fall is the prettiest time too! Down here in Tejas we don’t get much snow, so I’m happy to at least have the leaves change colors. I absolutely hate cold weather, so fall is def a happy medium. I’m a wimp when it comes to being cold.

I’m an even bigger wimp when it comes to Halloween. I’m so not a risk-taker. Halloween = a holiday full of scary stuff. Shall I say… risque. See what I did there. ;)
I mean, I’m a total scary movie buff, but when it comes to real life… No thank you. I’ll pass on the haunted house invites.
Since I’ll be a lame-o and stay at home with the girls, watching scary movies instead of trying to live them out, I made the perfect treat, no tricks involved!
hand full of fall
I didn’t really know what to call it. It’s like trail mix, but not really. Poppycock maybe? Nah. I think that word is so awk.It’s just.. all the things that I love about fall in one. big. bite.
Kettle corn. That’s all you need to say, and I’m in. Any where. Any time.
I found these Pumpkin Spice M&Ms at Target and I just had to give them a try. SIDENOTE: Eff you Target, because I always walk out with everything I don’t need. Not even a little bit. ENDNOTE.
Raisins, I just had to add them. I’m obsessed with Oatmeal Raisin cookies… anything oatmeal raisin actually. Like these. I swear they were gone after like a day. Sooo good.
Fall screams apples, so I had to throw some of those in there too. Freeze dried apple chips actually. Thanks again, Target.
Mix it all up. Add more of what you like, less of what you don’t. Definitely a better option than binging on your kids’ candy.
Or you could do that. Your pick.


What are your Halloween plans? What is your favorite thing about fall?

    Such a cute, festive, yummy idea! I love coming up with snacks that go along with the season or Holiday. Me personally, I’d rather Fall stick around a little longer and put off winter. I’m not ready for the COLD weather yet!

    Love you didn’t add nuts – not sure why everyone does that! Love the sweet raisins and apples – that makes it healthy right? Thanks for sharing the recipe!
