october love

October is here! It is my favorite month of the year, so get ready for oodles of posts. Here are some of the reasons I'll be grinning this month...

Weather. The weather drops to that perfect temperature that makes living in Arizona so well worth it after a long, hot summer. I get to finally wear layers. Boots, sweaters, scarves, oh my!

Mom's birthday. I get to celebrate my wonderful mom's birthday. I'm already thinking up gift ideas to give to such a loving lady.

Pumpkin treats. Everything is spiked with that delicious taste of pumpkin. From Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes to baked pumpkin seeds to pumpkin muffins.

Decorations. All my surroundings get a little bit warmer with deep, burnt colors. It feels so homey. On top of that, there are Jack-o'-lanterns, black kitties, and ghosts littering stores and homes.

Pumpkin patches. I haven't been to one since I was younger and I'm really itching to go. I love the hay rides, picking out pumpkins, and walking through haunted houses. Any takers?

Scary movies. I'm not usually a fan of these creepy flicks, but when October comes it feels mandatory to pop one in the DVD player. Getting goosebumps, covering my eyes, and letting out a few little screams is fun every once in awhile.

Halloween. This is one of my favorite holidays. I love making my own costumes. I have tons from over the years and always lend them out to my friends. I take full advantage of Halloween weekend by dressing up as much as I can.

What do you love about October?
