Autumn TAG!

Hello my lovelies!  I was tagged for the Autumn Tag by the fantastic Jackie of Five Two Certified.  Jackie has a great beauty blog, with some fun DIY tutorials thrown in there too.  Head on over and check her out.  Go ahead, I'll wait.
You back now?  Awesome.  On to the Autumn Tag.

This is the FIRST seasonal tag that I've been tagged in, so I'll TRY to stay on topic.  Autumn is my favorite season, with summer being a VERY close second.

Favorite Thing About Autumn
I love the way the leaves change, how it's warm during the day and cool in the evening.  Autumn has a beautiful smell, and I love that too.

Favorite Drink
Hot chocolate with a cinnamon stick.  The hubster makes it at Trunk or Treat every year, from scratch, and it's better than any other I have ever tried.

Favorite Scent/Candle
Pumpkin Pie or Apple Cinnamon.  I use a tart warmer, and am seriously loving the Pumpkin Pie scented wax that I picked up at Dollar Tree.  It smells SO SO good, and lasts a good while, for a buck!

Best Lipstick
This is a tough one, because while it is technically autumn here, it doesn't FEEL like it yet, so I've not really changed a whole lot up.  I'm loving EoS lip balm, and how smooth it makes my lips, and will be busting out darker lip shades soon.  I'm not sure I'm ready for a full on red lip but a nice mid-berry shade will likely be my go-to this season.  Anyone have a suggestion?

Go-to Moisturizer
I am currently loving Dermalogica's intense moisture balance.  My skin gets SUPER dry in autumn, and this is really helping with that.  A tiny dab goes a LONG way!

Favorite Go-to Color for the Eyes
I LOVE me some color on my eyes, but I'm gravitating a bit more towards neutrals too.  I am going to say: Green and Gold for Friday night football at the school (go Indians!- KTween Angel is in the band :) ) and purples or browns at other times.  Purple is just so flattering with my dark blue eyes, it's hard to say no.

Favorite Music to Listen To
I listen to KLove more than any other station- I find it comforting, relaxing and affirming.  I'm currently loving Casting Crowns.  If you haven't heard of them, go ahead and check them out on YouTube, they are incredibly talented.  For non-Christian music, I think I love Marie Digby the best right now.  She's amazingly talented, and I love many of her cover songs better than I do the original artists- but I've also always been a sucker for acoustic guitar.

Favorite Outfit to Wear
I have a fun brown and orange paisley shirt that is a fall favorite for me.  I pair it with blue jeans (is there anything else but blue jeans?) and flip flops.  I don't start wearing real shoes until Christmas.

Autumn Treat
I love pumpkin, and it's hard to pick a favorite!  Pumpkin pie, caramel apples, pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin roll, or birthday cake.  What?  My birthday is in Autumn.  I'm allowed to list that :)

Favorite Place to Be
I love going "home" in the autumn, but because of a variety of reasons, it's tough to do it.  Home is Upstate New York, by the way, and it is beautiful this time of year.  We love to visit the Virginia mountains in the fall too- the trees are SO gorgeous.  Honestly, though, curled up on my couch with my babies is my favorite place to be any time.

I think that's it for the Autumn Tag! Now, I'd like to tag the following lovely ladies:
