Things that make me happy today:

I love love love October. Good things happen in October. There are pumpkin patches to visit in October. The days start to get cooler in October. There is an abundance of cinnamon being used in my kitchen in October. Good things will happen in October. I can just feel it.

My mom will be here in 3 days. That's right. Just 3 more days! In her honor, I purchased this Chrysanthemum, aptly named 'Spicy Cheryl.' (hint: my mom's name is Cheryl.) We talk to Spicy Cheryl every time we walk out the door. Breuklyn asked Spicy Cheryl this morning if she was thirsty and if she got cold during the night. Maddux thinks we should provide her with a blanket. Brad looks at all of us like we are bananas.

I am keeping Sonic in business by purchasing Route 44 diet Cherry Dr. Peppers. It's getting kind of ridiculous.

I got a package in the mail from my dear sweet friend Kelsey at I have been happily working on a new October contest. Super exciting.

Thank you thank you thank you for all of the super sweet comments on my last post! I have read and re-read them at least a dozen times. You guys are the best! I let Paizlee pick a name out of her Halloween bucket for our giveaway winner and she picked...

I'm HOPING the weather will start to get cooler here. I'm looking forward to mine and Chon's birthday although I'm not looking forward to turning 38!! YIKES! Halloween is always fun! This year Mikey is going to be Max from Where The Wild Things Are courtesy of Chon and her hubby! They actually sewed the costume for him! And our 6 year anniversary is coming up for Miguel and I on Halloween too :)

I love October. You had me giggling about talking to the new plant. Brad should expect madness by now shouldn't he? I was thinking of you today and decided to come see if there was any Paizlee news. I'm still praying!
