2014, October, Recap, Review

October Recap

October is over already!  It didn’t seem to fly by as fast as September did, but it still went by pretty quick. Here are some highlights of the past month.

We took a few trips through the mountains to see the turning colors. Something I’ve wanted to do for the last couple of years but we could never find the time.

The local fair happens at the beginning of October and I took a ridiculous amount of photos there.
 I ate plenty of autumn treats, including these homemade caramel apples, apples martinis and of course, plenty of pumpkin spice coffees!


I watched the trees change colors.

My mom found the cutest lost cat! We made posters, put them around the neighborhood and he was back at his home by the end of the day.

We decided to check out a little restaurant a few blocks from our house and were not disappointed by their breakfast! I had an egg and cheese on a croissant and it was sooo good!

The month ended with a pumpkin carving party and a fun Halloween!


I finally found a new job!  It’s weird going from being free all day every day, to being very busy all day at work. I’m usually exhausted by the end of the day. But hopefully I’ll get used to it soon!

I kinda went a little blogging crazy in October, with a post nearly every day! I usually try not to have one more than every other day, but I just had too many ideas. Since I am working again I’ll probably go back to less posts, hopefully I won’t run out of ides or be too tired to write anything.

I bought an older version of photoshop elements at a good price and I am pretty excited about it. I used an online photo editor before and I just wasn’t happy with the way it compressed all my photos.

I am VERY excited for November because in my opinion, Christmastime starts the day after Halloween! (Yeah, I’m one of those people)  But Christmas is my favorite time of the year, why wait to start celebrating if it make me so happy? I had the biggest smile on my face on the drive home from handing out Halloween candy at my moms because I was so darn excited that it was time for Christmas! And no I didn’t forget about Thanksgiving, I just see it as part of the holiday celebration!

Anyway, I hope everyone had a happy October!
