middle - october

I had quite a few things I wanted to do in October and I hate to admit, I haven't done any of them. Slacker, I know. I don't even have a right to complain, because I know it. Does it feel like this month is just slipping through your hands? October feels like it doesn't belong to me this year, it's kind of depressing.

This weekend was busy busy (with another wedding just right around the corner!), and I woke up Saturday and thought "Ok, seriously. This is ridiculous, I need to do Fall-like things today." So to the farm we went.

I picked up lots of pumpkins and gourds for our porch, as well as a few big luscious mums & I'm starting to feel a little bit better, a little more like I'm living in this season. Instead of watching it from a distance.

A list seems to be in order. These are things I need to do let's say....before I leave for Florida (and the insanely hot climate) November 20th.

- find a farm, pick some apples
- make pumpkin churros
- drink lots of pumpkin spice lattes
- watch The Frighteners, The Last Exorcism, the original House on Haunted Hill
- finish The Passage
- um....work...out

Who is doing awesome Autumn inspired things this month? What are you cooking? What is your Halloween costume? Any good scary movies you would recommend?  I need to live through you people!

Pumpkin spice lattes have like 300 calories! That being said, I would like to try pumpkin churros.

The weather is really beautiful right now, hopefully autumn lasts a while this year.

Have you tried the maize maze? I've heard it's fun.

I haven't done much fall stuff either. Though we have bought quite a few Halloween decorations! But... I have been meaning to make these:

Nick - If you think making me aware of the calorie count will stop me in my tracks, you are truly wrong :)

Andrea - if you make those....ship some to me!
