October: A Full Month of Creepy Goodness!

October begins my favorite month of the year! Not only was my dear Bean born in October, I can’t believe he will be three this year, but I’ve always enjoyed the mild weather, the falling leaves, the white chocolate peppermint mochas from Starbucks, and HALLOWEEN!

Halloween ALL the things! Books, movies, corny jokes, decorations, attire!

Catching Up On My Reading List

Originally this was going to be part of a sister review with Rachel, but the book I needed to review still hasn’t come in at the library yet and I have 2 days and a couple odd hours left on my self-imposed book buying ban.

I figured after a 5k earlier that morning and before my baby shower that evening, it would be a good small event to check out. I was pretty interested in seeing what local artists showed up.

Oh. My. Goodness. I guess word really got out because, according to Jared, this year there were over 2,000 people who showed up. It was actually pretty amazing and completely my type of scene.
