fall fringe booties - a triple minnetonka giveaway

I love me a good Monday:) We're really kicking life/things back into gear this week since Martin finished up his treatment cycle on Saturday, we're feeling pretty settled in the house, and the babies are on a good schedule etc, so we thought that by way of a sort of celebration of moving forward that we should do a fun Fall giveaway for you guys!
I'll take one of each please:) It's been over a year since we've done one of these giveaways, and so I knew it needed to be shoes (a classic for The Freckled Fox), it needed to have multiple winners to spread the love, and it needed to be something that I've really been loving myself lately, since that's always top criteria for giveaways on here. That being said, Minnetonka is not a sponsor of this post or this blog, but I have several different types of their moccasins and have used and loved them for years. Everyone should have a pair of these soft and comfy beauties in their closet, especially now that we're into Fall with the leaves turning and the air getting crisp:)

Alright so to enter the giveaway(in case you don't already know the drill), you simply need to comment on this post sharing your favorite Fall tradition or memory, or something Fall related.haha Click that you commented in the widget below, and you're entered!

As you can see there are also a ton of bonus entries for following The Freckled Fox on various social media channels if you feel like upping your chances of winning, and thank you guys so much for all of your amazing support and love! There aren't a lot of ways to literally 'give back' to my people for all the constant encouragement and sweet motivation to keep doing what I love, so I hope you have a great rest of your new week and best of luck:)

  7. One of the first dates with my husband was wandering in a garden looking at the changing leaves. We lost track of time and it got very dark and on top of it we got lost heading back to the car. It was an adventure we look back on and laugh about fondly.

  9. Hi Emily, wow I love these shoes. So first of all, fall is my favourite season. I love the changing colour of the leaves, the red, orange, yellow and green.
    My favourite memory is from some years ago when I visited castle Herrenchiemsee which is on an island in the lake Chiemsee (Bavaria, Germany). I was there with my mum and our dog. You get to the island by boat. It was a beautiful fall day. The weather was crisp, not cold. So after we arrived there we just walked across the island until we reached the castle. The leaves of the trees were yellow. And there were so many of them already on the ground, or still falling down. I took tons of pictures and one of them turned out as very special: One of the falling leaves fell down right in front of my camera`s lense. This picture with the falling leave in the middle is one of my favourite fall pictures.
    But our day on the island turned out even better. We found out that there was an autumn hunt right on this day. So there were lots of riders with red show jackets and hunting dogs. It was so great to watch this take place in such a nice scenery.
    It was also a great day for my dog. He got to run around and even swam in the lake. I think he loved it as much as we did.
    So this was my favourite fall memory. I hope you enjoyed reading this.

  19. My favorite fall tradition is making thanksgiving dinner with my mom and carving our huge turkey. Then we'll take it to my uncle's house and we'll have dinner there and just spend all day and most of the night there talking with my aunts n uncles. We used to go to the thanksgiving parade here in Philadelphia, but when my mom was pregnant with our littlest she wanted to stay home and make our first thanksgiving dinner at home. That was 8 years ago.

  54. Hi Freckled Fox :) I've been following you for a couple years now and love all that you have to share with the world.
    What I lookforward to most in Autumn is the baking, the colors, the new smells in the air...but most of all! The cozy feel that comes with it! The blankets you can finally pull out, the warm scarves and autumn boots!

  69. Our favorite thing to do in the fall is go to the beach, the cold autumn atmosphere means you're likely there alone and the weather is intense. The experience is amazing. Great for pictures and making new memories. Since we have no kids, we bring the pups. 💜

    ReplyDelete
  77. Going to the pumpkin patch every year with my family! They have a petting zoo, a cool old barn where they sell antiques, and the best pumpkin cookies I've ever had. After we get our pumpkins, we make a fall display with them outside our house. It's my favorite time of year :)

    ReplyDelete
  78. What a great giveaway! And so thoughtful!
    One of my favorite fall memories is from 8 years ago: not long after my (now) husband and I first met in college, we went on a roadtrip with some of our roommates, to soak up the last few days of summer and the early days of fall in the Carolinas! It's a memory that I wouldn't mind repeating every year! Thanks Emily!!

  82. My favorite fall memory/tradition I have is that as a family, My siblings, parents and nieces and nephews would all go apple picking to a local orchard. We would bring a crock pot meal, candy corn, apple cider and donuts and have a picnic after picking upwards of 8 bushels of apples that we later made into applesauce. It was always the highlight of our autumn!
    Thanks for doing this giveaway Emily! You and your family are still in my prayers!

    ReplyDelete
  99. Ah I love those booties! We are really loving the changing colors & chilly air here on the east coast. :)

    ReplyDelete
  100. Thank you for a chance to enter - I'd have to say one of my favorite fall traditions is going camping with my husband. We always try to go right before it gets freezing cold outside. My other favorite tradition is Thanksgiving at my in-law's house. My husband's sister and her family come into town and we have a great time every year. The biggest "tradition" is the older kids and his father "taste testing" the dressing. There is always a debate about how much sage needs to be added. One year, we had so much sage the dressing actually had a green hue to it before it was all said and done. :)

    ReplyDelete
  110. Our favorite fall traditions are the normal cliche ones lol. Decorating for fall, pumpkin patches, drives up the canyon to look at the beautiful colors of changing leaves, making pumpkin breads, and pumpkin cookies., buying new halloween books to read to the kiddos, and watching/reading/listening to 'The Monster Mash" 200x's a day! Even though these traditions are similar to what others do I don't mind because it brings our family closer together, and there isn't anyone I'd want to experience the excitement with more than with my sweet little family! Xo

    ReplyDelete
  111. our family loves to take walks to the park nearby. we love the fall colors and cool weather. we are from the east coast and in general not a huge fan of humidity so fall is for sure our favorite. and now with the addition of our miracle baby (who is 1 year!!!) we are even more in love with being outdoors! xoxo.

    ReplyDelete
  112. My family's favorite Fall things to do are apple picking at a local orchard and raking up a big pile of leaves to jump in.

    ReplyDelete
  113. I love fall! While I don't like the winters in Ohio, I'm grateful for the beautiful fall weather we get. One of my favorite things as a kid was going to pumpkin farms- riding hayrides, drinking warm apple cider, picking out a pumpkin to carve. Now, I drag my husband with me to visit local pumpkin farms so we can get pumpkins to carve and try to find our way through big corn mazes. Once we have kids, it's definitely something I not only want to do but I hope that they will also love it and have amazing memories.

  114. We love watching Halloween movies, like Hocus Pocus & The Nightmare Before Christmas.

  122. I love the chill in the air, sweaters, and the overall cozy feeling of fall!

    ReplyDelete
  123. Halloween is a really big thing for my family. It will be strange this year as my parents and sister have moved from KS to AZ... but usually it is a big deal. We would all go to my parent's house, they used to live in the city they grew up in. So everyone who would stop by with their kids would stop in and say hi. They would have dinner or dessert. We would make chili and chili dogs ( I have no idea how that became the tradition.. probably because it's easy and makes lots of servings?!). We would make sugar cookies, or pop corn balls, or brownies that looked like spiders, or something festive. We'd dress up and spend way too much time out there before driving home. I'm really going to miss that now... but my husband and I are working hard to create our own traditions that we can start with our someday family. :) XO -Alexandra

  128. Making jars and jars of applesauce with my family is my favorite fall memory. My parents would devote an entire Saturday to the endeavor. I've recently started doing the same with my own little family!

    ReplyDelete
  129. My favorite fall memory is raking the leaves up at my mom's house and jumping in the HUGE piles. She has 3/4 of an acre and its mostly wooded so we had simply enormous piles by the end of the day. We could tunnel through the leaves and try to jump on top (avoiding the inevitable stick..those always hurt. I'm surprised we never poked any eyes out). I can still smell the scent of crisp brown leaves :)

    ReplyDelete

  133. Going to my great great grandmothers 1850's home that my parents own in the country. There isn't any central heat and air so to get warm we cuddle up on the couch with a fuzzy blanket, hot cocoa(or coffee), and watch the flames in the fireplace dance.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  135. Before I was married, my siblings and I would venture into the tangled depths of an old apple orchard in our backyard and pick the best apples we could find. We'd eat apple pies, apple crisp, and apples with caramel sauce all week!! My new Fall tradition is FREE Grande Pumpkin Spice Lattes at the coffee shop I work at! (oh. my. yes!) ♥ ♥

    ReplyDelete
  136. Growing up, I don't remember us having a fall tradition, but I've started one now that I have a family. We go to a pumpkin patch every year and look forward to it yearly.

  137. Thanks for such a wonderful giveaway! I love fall, especially its long, cool walks, cozy sweaters, nice smelling candles and lots of cuddling <3

    ReplyDelete
  138. I am excited for fall because of my little one, Bay. He is finally old enough to get what the holidays mean and get excited for fall fun - like costumes and pumpkin patches. We get to bundle him up in adorable coats and hats, and life seems to sharpen a little in the cold weather, giving my family a much needed break from the hazy days of summer.

    ReplyDelete
  139. My family and I go apple picking! We love when the weather turns cool and we enjoy apple cider donuts at the apple ranch.

My fiancé just made pumpkin beer which will be ready just in time for my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving! :) OH, and we get to do family photos/ engagement photos this weekend by the river with all the beautiful colors of Colorado! :) I LOVE FALL!:)

    ReplyDelete
  145. My parents live on a golf course and when the leaves change on a windy day everybody goes out and catches the leaves as they fall. Sounds dumb but it is hilarious to watch because the leaves don't just fall straight down. You're constantly falling over because you have to change directions so fast to catch then lol.

  146. One of my favorite Fall traditions is going to the pumpkin patch with my kids and riding the train around the patch. It's such a treat! Even though my kids are getting bigger, we all still look forward to it.

  148. Growing up we always looked forward to the fair-and it was always such fun. My Dad didn't do a lot with us growing up but he made sure we went to the fair as a family. As an adult I always enjoyed carrying my little ones to the fair and now that my little girls are in college I still enjoy going with them to the fair and anywhere. Thanks so much for this most generous opportunity.

  156. Our fall tradition is waiting for the leaves to change, and anticipating out 5 hours drive to my grandparents for thanksgiving (which in canada is in October!). The drive is so beautiful because of all the trees.

  157. We live in South FL so we don't get most of the beautiful things that come with the Fall season but we do have some weeks when we can wear boots! I love fall fashion, baking anything pumpkin, and celebrating my kiddos' birthdays.

  158. My favorite fall tradition is making pumpkin treats! My most adored memory of my childhood is my grandmother teaching me how to making a pumpkin pie from a whole fresh pumpkin.

  159. We always have a big bonfire party for our kids & their friends over school fall break - complete with s'mores & hot dogs! We look forward to it every year, and it just keeps growing!!

  160. My favourite fall memory has to be going to the pumpkin patch. My aunt got all my family together the year I got married and we've made it a tradition every year since. I've watched my family and my cousins family grow and change each year as little ones get added and kids grow up. And my Hubster always insists on finding the perfect pumpkin which is pretty amusing to watch him pick through the giant field of pumpkins to find "The One." Gets us good exercise too ��

    My favorite Fall ritual is setting up our fire pit and snuggling with my husband and just enjoy each other presence.

  168. Ack! Such cute boots! Our favorite fall tradition is cooking our Halloween dinner in a pumpkin. That's of course followed up with a hearty dose of trick or treating.

    ReplyDelete
  169. I love these boots, never bought but always admire 😊 Fall is my favorite, just the simple beauty that is everywhere, all the colors. My mother's apple pie and my kids playing in the leaves

  170. It's so hard for me to pick just one thing I love about fall! We recently moved to an acreage in Alberta, Canada and our property is mostly trees - ice absolutely loved watching the leaves change colours this fall, it was so breathtaking! I also love fall fashion - warm sweaters and scarves, plaid plaid and more plaid! I also love snuggling up with my 13 mo old and fiancé by the fireplace as the evenings get colder and darker!

    ReplyDelete
  171. I love going hiking in the Blue Ridge mountains when the leaves have changed to enjoy nature!

    ReplyDelete
  172. My favorite thing about fall is the gradual pull that the cooler weather brings to come and gather indoors. I do love being outdoors in the summer, however, the coziness and extra time just gathered with my little family is my favorite of all!

  173. my favorite fall tradition is going to the pumpkin patch - “sams pumpkin patch!” we’ve been going since i was born, and now my husband and i go. i look forward to it every year - the man that runs it is getting older now, so i don’t know how many more years it’ll continue (his kids and grandkids are helping him out now), but it just absolutely the best thing about the town we live in!

    loveee this giveaway! fingers crossed! :)

  174. One of my favorite fall traditions is to make a special cider recipe I learned at a college retreat. The cider is mixed with melted Red Hots candies. It gives it a yummy spicy edge!

    ReplyDelete
  175. Since my son was born I have really loved creating Halloween costumes for him and taking pictures at a local farm here with a friend and her son. It works out perfectly since it is my son's 1/2 birthday and fall pictures are just the best with all the colors. Making his costumes gives me even more appreciation for the costumes my mom made for me growing up.

  177. I get excited for the start of the football season and going to the orchard for apples, cider, and doughnuts!

  178. When I think of fall I always think of this Casper light up haunted house my mom bought when I was tiny (probably 4). It had green lights and I always looked forward putting it out each year for halloween. Funny the things that stay with you from childhood.

    ReplyDelete
  179. Probably going to see the leaves turning and of course hot apple cider

    ReplyDelete
  180. Oh, a giveaway, how fun! I love apple picking, by far my favorite!

  181. I love fall because of flannel shirts, boots, campfires, photoshoots, anticipation for Christmas, and harvest parties. Mostly because of the cool weather and days at home with more of a schedule.

    ReplyDelete
  182. I love sweaters (my kids don't). We always take a drive up Logan Canyon in the Fall. Sometimes we get 2 in, once at the beginning of Fall and once at the end.

  183. I love bonfires on cool nights with hot drinks!

  184. I love going to pick pumpkins with my daughters and then going home to paint them however they want! Some of my favorite memories...

    ReplyDelete
  185. I love taking our annual family photos every fall, not only because I'm an autumn (red hair and freckles with pale skin!), but because the gorgeous colors make the best back drop for our documentation of another year as a family! It's always my favorite part of the cool, cocoa and bonfire weather!

    ReplyDelete
  186. Since I was a kid, we've gone to an orchard to pick apples and make them into applesauce. So delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  187. Tea! Scarves! All the leaves! Fall in Alaska is waaaay too short, so I spend a lot of time trying to get out and enjoy it before the darkness settles in.

  192. I love making pies! My mom used to make the most delicious homemade pies for thanksgiving, but when she got tired of doing th extra work I took over the job and have been doing it for years now. Nothing better than homemade pumpkin or apple pie :-)
