hey there October | a few goals

September has always been my favorite month out of the year, but lately I've really been appreciating each month individually for what comes with it. October is when the Fall weather properly hits around here, though there are still some really awkward days where you have to pile on your sweaters and wooly socks in the morning chill, and then by noon you're dying from heatstroke. haha We have been loving the changing leaves and Halloween costume prep though, and today I wanted to share a few goals that we've written up to try and accomplish this month:
 - take the family camping
 - have a halloween movie marathon
 - visit the pumpkin patch
 - drink lots of hot chocolate
 - preserve some colorful leaves
 - go visit a haunted house
 - get back into our weekend vlogging
 - complete the big corn maze
 - have our family pictures taken
 - explore new hiking trails
 - start sharing room tours on the blog
 - carve pumpkins
 - take more and more and more pictures
 - bake a pie .. or three:)

I hope you have a lovely weekend whatever you have planned. I so appreciate you coming back and reading even though I know how sporadic my posts have been ever since Martin's diagnosis, the baby birth, the move, and on and on. Life happens and I'm not apologizing, but I can't thank you guys enough for baring with me through all of this. Big group hug.haha

What are some of your October goals? and am I the only one that finds my goal list growing as the month passes instead of shrinking??



  1. Those are great goals! A lot of mine are similar - I love Halloween movies and everything fall related. I watched Halloween Town last night, and now I just want to watch more movies, curl up with some hot apple cider and a warm blanket, and eat toasted nuts!

    1. oh man that sounds like the best night ever. Totally going to make some apple cider tomorrow! Thanks for your ideas!

  2. October is such a great month for transitions. I'm a teacher and August/September are pretty crazy, so I'm looking forward to just getting back to the basics this month. Plus I'd like to lose ten pounds so I can gain it back in November and December ;)

    1. hahaha that is the best thing I've heard in a while, and the best reason for losing weight I think I've ever heard.haha Thanks for making my day!

  3. Here are my goals for october:!! Love yours! Cant wait to see your room tours!

  4. Those are great goals! I can't wait to read all about it (:
