10 Things [From Me] This Month – The October Edition

Let’s catch up for a minute. Here’s a little bit of what was going on with me over the last month – and some of what I’m looking forward to next month.

ONE+ I got my blogging mojo back (and so did Kim) – and posted some awesome dark and disturbing reads for #WickedGoodReads Month. So if you haven’t yet – check out Another 3 Psychological Thrillers That Are #WickedGoodReadsMurder, Monsters and Madness [A #WickedGoodReads Reading List] … and all the other … #WickedGoodReads.

TWO+ October this year was quite a transition month – started out hot – and ended up cold. So buh-bye grilling season and hello soups! I’ve already made my first batch of the season – chicken noodle of course!

THREE+ We came up with something new this year for Halloween – to try and scare each other (that’s what family is for), we basically played “Elf on a Shelf” … but with a skeleton. It made it’s way from the recliner my hubs uses to my son’s bathroom to my office to my son’s closet, to sharing his bed.

FOUR+ Check out more of our house decked out for Halloween in This Is Halloween [The 2019 Edition].

FIVE+ One of my favorite things about the Autumn season is the changing colors of the trees / leaves. I’ve seen them in 3 different states this October – Oregon (twice), Illinois and Wisconsin … so beautiful!

SIX+ Kim and I will be sharing how we bring Fall vibes inside a little later in November.

SEVEN+ Best thing I bought in October – these pillows from Target and these ones too – for our living room couch – so soft and comfy!

EIGHT+ Also this drying rack from World Market to display mugs. I have a thing for mugs and wanted to show them off seasonally. The rack is perfect for that.

NINE+ Looking forward in November to my youngest step-son’s 16th birthday – he requested a laser-tag partayyy … plus Thanksgiving is coming – and of course, there’s planning for Christmas … my favorite time of the year!

November Plan With Me

TEN+ November is also usually a pretty good month for getting lots of reading done … and try to catch up on reading challenges! The last book I read was The Girl in Red, Christina Henry – and I’m currently reading Mongrels, Stephen Graham Jones.  What about you – have you given up – or are you on track with the reading challenges you joined?
