Another year of Halloween has come and gone.
As much as I love Halloween, I always am way more excited for the upcoming events that just so happen to fall between now and December.
Since it’s November 1st, I say it’s now socially acceptable to take down those Halloween decorations, and get the Christmas stuff rolling. Too soon?
I’ll try to hold back a little while longer. Who knows how long that will last.
Now that October has officially finished, time for another roundup of my monthly favorites. There’s a lot this month!
They are the perfect little snack full of satisfying and quality ingredients.
It’s officially soup weather.
It’s taken me a long time to reintroduce soups into my diet, since that was a staple in those dreaded disordered days, but I am welcoming them back with open arms.
Especially when they’re tasty and full of flavor. Plus, it just screams comfort food.
I’ve ventured out into making my own nut and seed butters and I don’t think I’ll be going back to store bought. Well, except for my beloved artisana.
But, this pumpkin seed butter is truly amazing.
If you haven’t tried seed butter before, I highly recommend it.
Not only are pumpkin seeds delicious, but they are super nutritious as well.
Celebrating my birthday
Obviously a highlight of October will have to include celebrating my 22nd birthday.
There’s nothing better in my opinion than birthdays.
It’s equally awesome that I get to celebrate this day with my Mom too.
Tabata is one of my favorite forms of fitness, since the intervals are intense and fast.
By having intervals that are only 20-50 seconds long, it makes the workout soar by.
During those seconds I feel like I may be slowly dying, but after I feel amazing.
They’re cozy, comfortable and anyone can find a style that fits their frame. I’m also a weirdo, who doesn’t like wearing pants.
That sounds bad, but I mean that I’m not a jean fan. I would be perfectly content if I could go on everyday wearing dresses, skirts, or leggings.
Now that the cooler weather has hit, it’s really not the best option to be wandering around in a typical summer dress.
Which is why I absolutely adore sweater dresses.
The perfect mix of Summer and Fall. These will do until Winter hits.
Sweater dresses also look adorable with boots, which makes me a happy camper.
With it being Halloween month, how could I not enjoy this spooky show.
Dexter has been a long running favorite of mine.
I’m wimpy when it comes to watching this show alone, although I love scary movies. Just not after I watch them. So, my sister and I usually watch this show together.
This show is slightly Halloween-y since you know it’s about a serial killer, so I thought it was appropriate to include.
Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn
I read Gone Girl and was captivated start to finish.
It’s definitely an intense read, and not for the faint of heart.
Especially is easily impacted by books. However, I love story lines that can pull you in and books that leave you wanting more from the author.
Which is why this book is one of my favorites.
How was your Halloween?
What are some of your favorites from October?
Have a great Thursday!
