Autumn Smells

Your Autumn Sense is Smell

You are a very sensitive, in tune person, and you have a good memory. You notice all the little smells associated with fall.

Of course you love favorite smells like pumpkin pie cooking or a fire burning, but your nose is much more sensitive than that.

You also notice the smell of fall leaves, the scent of a favorite sweater, and the aroma of fresh apples.

You remember and cherish every detail of the season. In fact, the littlest things about fall give you the greatest amount of pleasure.

I'm doing 2 in 1, please forgive me lol.

Fall is my favorite season, although we seem to be skipping right the heck over it here.

You Are Pumpkin Bread

You are considerate and generous. Your heart warms when you're able to do something unexpectedly nice for someone else.

You know it can be a cold world out there, and you have plenty of happiness to spread around.

You try to give as much as possible every day, and you know that small acts of kindness can often mean the much.

Whether you're being a good listener or sharing a slice of your pumpkin bread, people feel lucky to be able to count on you.

This month is SSD's 3rd birthday and Teresa asked us to blog about birthday's for our FOBTY. My 18th birthday is one I remember, since when I leaned over to blow out my candles, my bangs went up in flames. I'm 32 and the family still mentions it every time someone has a birthday. I don't think anyone will forget about that one any time soon. Unfortunately.

You love to get things as cheaply as possible. You live for sales.

It's partially because you like to save money, but it's also because you like the thrill of finding a fabulous deal.

Of all the types, you tend to shop frequently but rarely by. You keep an eye on prices.

Brand names are not that important to you. You know how to have style without collecting designer tags.

Have a great day!!!
