Happy October!

8202431_origOctober is one of my absolute FAVORITE months... I totally love Halloween, pumpkins, the chill in the air, sweater weather and all the fun involved in the month.  Again I have to think about the "designer in me" at an early age (as well as a very creative mom!) when remembering Halloween over the years. For Halloween we never had store bought costumes... nope, it was all about creativity and creating our own SUPER neat costumes. I was everything from a box of Raisin Bran Cereal where my face showed thru the hole we made in the sun (a bit heavy to wear tho for the school parade!), a queen of hearts card (way before other people had the idea), a pea pod, (my face was one of the peas), a big spider with a ton of stuffed legs and the list goes on!

I have to say tho... this is one of my favorite pics of Halloween, my sweet lab Dylaney and I dressed up as "Dalmations" for the PetSmart Halloween Contest.... we won a $5.00 gift certificate and everyone thought we looked adorable :)

….Her daddy thought we were just nuts!

What is your favorite thing about October????
