The Hobbiton Tag! // ft. my love of hot chocolate

September 20, 2020

 Happy Sunday!

Yes, I'm "back" - kind of. I've really missed blogging, and I don't think I can disappear entirely without going crazy. You can expect posts on random Sundays. XD 

BUT we're not here to talk about my mess of a posting schedule. We're here to talk about one of the most important bookish events of the year.

This week, on September 22nd, Bilbo and Frodo have their birthdays! And I remembered that I have this super-old tag that Emily created last year. I didn't do it then because I was on semi-hiatus, but now I have time in my posting schedule!

Let's just do this.


  1. Please use the above graphic and link back to me!
  2. Answer the questions!
  3. Tag as many people as you like! (okay, but seriously, thank you for not clarifying, because I literally have no idea who has all done this XD)


You've invited Bilbo over for second breakfast. What are you serving? Hmmmm, for second breakfast? Maybe some waffles and sausage, with strawberries on the side. And chocolate milk. *shrugs* I was so close to just answering with strawberry Pop-Tarts. You have no idea how long I've eaten those for breakfast.

It's a nice, cozy evening in your hobbit hole. What kind of hot drink do you relax with? Hot chocolate, of course! #superiortocoffee #sorrynotsorry

You have to invite either Gollum or the Sackville-Bagginses to your birthday party. Who do you choose? Is "neither" an answer? 


I guess I'd have to pick the Sackville-Bagginses then - I'd have a better chance of survival. XD I can't stop thinking about Gollum searching the house for gold rings and getting violent when he wants to keep one.

Cold weather has settled into the Shire. Do you curl up with a sweater or a blanket? If I had to choose between them, I'd pick a blanket. I'm not a fan of sweaters. I just find them so itchy and uncomfortable. *runs from the sweater fans*

Who would you rather go on an adventure with, Bilbo or Frodo? EMILY, THIS IS SUCH A CRUEL QUESTION. 

I feel like Bilbo would go on way less dangerous adventures than Frodo, so I'd have to go with Bilbo for that reason alone. I don't want to deal with Ringwraiths, sorry. or a giant war, or a dark lord, or a giant spider in a claustrophobic cave, or . . . 

You're stuck in your hobbit hole with a snowstorm outside. How do you spend your evening? Reading, writing, or watching a movie! And hot chocolate. We can't forget that. ;)

You're planning your birthday party. What's the entertainment: Gandalf's fireworks or Merry and Pippin's singing and dancing? Hmmmm . . . *is scheming for a loophole* I'd say Gandalf's fireworks, for two reasons:

  1. His fireworks are the most epic inventions ever.
  2. If I invite Merry and Pippin, we're bound to get some singing and dancing anyways. ;)

Of course, as a hobbit, you'd prefer to go barefoot. But if you were the sort for such things, would you prefer fuzzy socks or cozy slippers? Socks all the way! I've tried slippers before, and . . . I don't know why, but I'm just not a fan? But socks are just closer to being barefoot. 

Sam's brought you some of his autumn harvest! What do you make: pumpkin pie? Baked apples? Butternut squash soup? The options are endless! All right, confession time: I am such a picky eater it's not even funny. As a result, I don't really like those classic autumn foods. So I would hope that Sam brings potatoes, just so I can make mashed potatoes. XD 

(my taste in food is the most pathetic thing ever, seriously)

It's a beautiful, crisp autumn day in the Shire. What are your plans for the day? Ooo, this is a fun question! I'd probably wake up late, take a walk outside, then spend the rest of the day reading or writing. actually, who am I kidding, I'd just binge-watch a TV show or YouTube. that's what I do anyways

Okay, that was one of the coziest tags I've ever done. I'm getting alllllll the autumn/Shire vibes right now. *grabs a hoodie*

If you haven't done this tag yet, I tag you! And I hope you find a way to celebrate Bilbo and Frodo's birthday on Tuesday. Just remember: just like in Middle-earth, there is still hope, even in these crazy times. <3

    1. Btw, I tagged you. I know that you're super busy and I am not pressuring you to do it in any way, but I thought that if you wanted to post but didn't know what to do it would be something easy. :D

  2. Aaahhhh, Nicole! *glomps* I've missed your posts! I'm so glad you're still going to pop in now and again. I hope life is treating you well. <3

    This IS such a cozy tag and has me all in the fall mood now! I absolutely loved reading your answers. And oh my goodness, I'm a picky eater toooo! It is just ABSURD how much stuff I don't like, and annoying. >.> SO yeah, I'm right there with ya. You can't go wrong with good ol' PO-TAY-TOES. ;D

  3. Even though Rachel's Hobbit blog party is on my radar, I had forgotten that The Birthday is on Tuesday. XD Haha, now I have to figure out what to do about it! And because there was one day where I made all the hobbit meals for my family, they're probably going to expect me to do it again. Not happening. XD
    Fall is absolutely my favorite season--I think it's a Ravenclaw thing, actually--I just love everything about it.
    I like tea over hot chocolate (too sweet, tbh, although I do drink it on occasion), and coffee (too bitter, although I drink that on occasion, too, usually mixed with hot chocolate. I know--I'm a monster).

  4. Oh, this is so fun, and I am definitely stealing it!

  5. Nicole, ahhh, I'm so glad you made a post! *squeals*
    I love this tag. It has a cozy feel to it. Is that weird? I think that's kinda weird. *shrugs* Well, us bloggers can be weird together.
    Hot chocolate is amazing! I've never cared much for slippers either. I'm not really sure why.
    And I am DEFINITELY a picky eater.

  6. Great answers! Mashed potatoes are the best!!

  7. AHH YAY YOU DID THE TAG!! And I LOVED your answers! I had to laugh at the image of Gollum looking for rings and getting violent when he wants one. xD And of COURSE Sam would bring potatoes! Would you expect anything less of him? xD

    This made me smile! Thanks for participating! <3
