Thursday Thirteen #30 -- October Edition!

Thirteen reasons I love October...


1. Cold, crisp, fall days.


2. Chili in the crock pot and fresh bread from the bread machine.

3. Halloween candy.

4. Not so much weeding.

5. Hot chocolate with peppermint schnapps.

6. Hot chocolate without peppermint schnapps.

7. My birthday!

8. End of soccer season (which I love, but I'm ready for it to be done for the year).

9. Reading a book on the couch on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

10. Halloween costumes. (I don't get to wear them anymore, but it's way fun helping the kiddos pick them out!)


11. Did I mention Halloween candy?


12. Holiday decorating. (Just for Halloween/harvest time. I won't pull out the Christmas decor until the day after Thanksgiving, thankyouverymuch.)
13. Trick or treating with the kids!

I love October, too! Now you've got me wondering if it's because my birthday is in October as well (it was last week). Hmmm.

Happy Birthday month, Kate:)

I wish our weather would get to October temps. We've been close to 90 all week. That's just wrong!

Great list....that will be my theme next week:) I love Halloween candy too but try not to buy too much because we always end up eating more than we give away:) Happy TT and thanks for stopping by.

Oh man, I wanted hot chocolate with peppermint so bad last night. I am going to have to go to the store cause I definitely won't kick the craving now, lol. Thanks for stopping by.

Fall is such a wonderful time of the year. Now that my kids are too old for Trick or Treating, I look forward to Thanksgiving.

Happy TT!

Who says you can't wear Haloween cozzies anymore?! I dress up to answer the door for trick-or-treaters. And one year some chaperoning parents were dressed as Thing One and Thing Two. :D We need more holidays where one can dress up as anyone/anything one wants.

Cecily R said...

I so love the fall! Happy Birthday month and happy TT!

Becka said...

Ooo, I love October as well (my birthday is the 9th) and Halloween! It's so much fun to dress up the kidlets as well. :D I just wish it wasn't so cold here in Oregon on Halloween night. Some of those costumes are so skimpy! LOL
