10 reasons I adore October

Reason #1: My BF’s from high school and college come into town with their families for the Balloon Fiesta!  This means we get to have fun at the park and lots of play dates with Gracie’s little buddies!


Reason #2: The house is decorated with pumpkins and leaves and smells of cinnamon.


Reason #3: I get the opportunity to fine-tune my sewing skills in preparation for Halloween.  Grace is going to be one adorable Little Mermaid.


Reason #4: G and I get to watch the kiddos we love most in the world paint pumpkins together.  Even our too-cool-for-school 12 year old nephew got in on the action!


Reason #5: Our niece Mia celebrates a birthday, which results in cake, ice cream and this year it also brought about a ridiculously fun 80’s themed birthday party.  Happy birthday little cutie.  Your aunties love you!


A little preview of what we have to look forward to at Gracie’s second birthday party, haha!  Gotta love year two. ;)


Reason #6: There are lots of family functions, which gives these mamas ample opportunity to goof around and act like the dorks we truly are.


Reason #7: October is breast cancer month.  Did anyone order a baby in a bucket?


Reason #8: My mama (aka Nani) turns a year older.  We hosted family night to celebrate the big day and enjoyed frito pie and cheesecake.  It was YUM!  Happy birthday ma. :)


Reason #9: The weather begins to get colder and this means that on some days, we can wear warm jammies all day if we want to.


Reason #10: And last but not least, it’s my birthday this week!  Holla!

Happy BEST month of the year!
