Seriously though… I can’t keep up. All the days are going by in some crazy kind of blur and I am a bit flabbergasted that Halloween is in less than a week. I mean, it seems like we just ushered in Fall with our obligatory Pumpkin Spice Latte, and now it is almost time to
eat all the candy celebrate Halloween.
Good-bye October. You were swell 🙂
What I Am Loving:
The Pumpkin Patch!
We went to a different pumpkin patch this year and we had such a great time! The weather was perfect (for Southern California, it definitely was. Going to the pumpkin patch when it is 90° or more outside is no bueno).
This one had rides, a train, games, food, and of course pumpkins. Oh, and also a haunted house and a hay maze. My older daughter won prizes at the games she played and she decorated a pumpkin. She had a great time 🙂 My ten month-old on the other hand, well let’s just say, I think she’ll enjoy it so much more on the next go round! 😉
What I Am Absolutely Over:
Yes, you guessed it. The news. It literally is a $#@!show every day. Every. Single. Day.
What I Am Looking Forward To:
A day where I don’t have allergies. Seriously. These winds came in last week (they are called the Santa Ana winds here) and they knocked down trees, blew stuff around in the air, and my sinuses are still a wreck. I am hoping that once it is November and the temperature drops just a bit more, things will steady out. *crossing fingers*
In Other News:
We have almost completed our Fall Bucket List.
In addition to watching It’s The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown and going to the pumpkin patch among other things, we made these Halloween Oreo Brookie Bars. Go to the store and make these things immediately. You won’t be sorry. You’re welcome.
All that is left on our list, is trick-or-treating. Mama is hoping there are some Three Musketeers bars in the ‘ol basket, because Mama loves her some Three Musketeer bars. And my girl loves to share, so… 😉
How have things been going for you guys? Are you doing anything special for Halloween?
