In Review // October

Tomorrow’s Halloween! Do you have any plans? I’ll be at a haunted hayride tonight, so I think tomorrow I’ll take it easy and watch horror movies with Little One. I should get as much rest as I can on Saturday so that at the stroke of midnight on Sunday I can start working on NaNo!

A review of October. // WATCHING

I was on a Girl Meets World kick this month and friends were receiving snaps of my favorite scenes, like when Riley finds out that Maya is going to attend the college party that starts at 10pm. “Starts at ten? Whoever heard of such a thing?” And there must be a lot of Boy Meets World fans who are watching (like me) because so many characters have come back for episodes here and there. It’s been fun!


I had a few busy and stressful works, so unfortunately I wasn’t reading as much as I wanted to during that time, but I read a few fun horror novels, a mystery/slightly paranormal fave and a book that I think is really important.


That the weather is finally cooling off. I love wearing sweaters and being surrounded by blankets. I love warming up in front of a space heater or a fire. You know it’s cold when even Little One starts seeking extra warmth. The other day I woke up, turned on the light and she opened one eye to look at me from her blanket cocoon. It was so cute!


Two of my faves released new albums this year so I had David Garrett and Harry Connick Jr. on repeat this month.


A lot of planning, with query plans and NaNoWriMo starting on Sunday (!!).


I feel like there’s so much I could put here this month, but my mind is a jumbled mess of words, so I’ll just go with… stuff.


I recently picked up two new Tracy Anderson DVDs that I’m excited to put into my workout rotation. I’ve really come to like her workouts!

Specialty coffee drinks, sweaters and scarves, the leaves changing color. There is so much that comes to mind when people think of the fall months. I’ve talked about it non-stop and other bloggers have talked about it non-stop. But what about the things that come to mind when people think of fall that aren’t so widespread or cliched. The things that are more personal.

>> Be Inspired by the Fall Season // Fall Week

I’ve always found the change of seasons to be inspiring. It’s like the start of something new sparks my imagination and gives me renewed energy for productivity. Do you ever feel the same way? Fall in particular is an inspiring month. If you’re looking for an extra little boost of inspiration at this time of year, here are a few suggestions.


ps – August & September

    As much as I dislike the changing of seasons, I do like getting all cozy and snuggling on the couch with my boys.
    I feel like October flew by in a flash. I wish time would slow down a little bit though, it’s getting crazier as we get older, too.

    Have a great weekend hun! xo

    I love fall—it’s my favorite time of year. But I live in sunny south Florida, so we don’t get “cold” weather until January. And by cold, I mean 60 degrees! Ha-ha!

Fall is my favorite. The colors outside are sooo beautiful! I know I should rake the leaves in my yard, but its so hard because they just look so pretty lol

    In fall I love that you can still leave your bedroom window cracked open for that crisp, fresh air even though you are snuggled in you favorite blankets.
