Lots of fall activities! In October, the foliage is prime and Halloween is around the corner and it’s the most wonderful time of the year. 

 

 

This weekend I went to a pumpkin walk & lighting and Oktoberfest on our mountain top.  October is a really busy month but a good month with lots of fun things planned! In addition to the normal fall busyness and fun, we have wedding festivities to go this month and next month. I also have a photo shoot planned for next weekend, (1940’s pinup at a big ship museum) but I am waiting to hear back on if the location is a definite.

We are planning to do a great pumpkin blaze and a haunted house too this month and also have a Halloween party to go to! (We still have to lock down our costumes…..)

Normal life stuff….

 

This fall so far has been filled with good, but busy things.

I have been taking a Graphic Design class and that has been a lot of work, but fun! Even if you only take 1 class while working 40 hours a week, it’s a lot. Especially when you have Photoshop projects that take a lot of time and effort. Right now I am focusing on just taking classes and gaining skills that will help with me with my blogging and expand my opportunities for jobs. I want to continue with Graphic Design classes and also explore Web Design courses. I also want to complete the Google Digital Marketing certification, anyone done it?! (Career students, you out there, you with me) Lololol.

Life has also been really busy since we rescued Miss Molly and she came into our lives.

But oh so sweet.

This is what a happy girl who was just rescued looks like.

I swear we fall more and more in love with her every day…

Guys, I swear I have been working on my October and Halloween Happy planning.  I still only doing planning layouts when I feel up to it and think about it, I try not to stress about it at all and just have fun with it when I want to. But that will be coming soon!

 

Also, I am in the middle of playing Life is Strange: Before the Storm and will be blogging a review/my thoughts post on that once I am done. If you are not familiar with Life is Strange, I talked about it here. Because of our slow mountain wifi, I had to download the game at Frankie’s house ( a half hour away from me) so can only play it when I am there. So far I really love it and it is everything I thought it would be, but I haven’t gotten very far yet.

Hints of fall…

Listening now…

 

 

I see hints of fall all around me already.

Living on the mountain top you see the tippy tops of the trees changing very quickly.

August seems non existent and before you know it, the trees are almost all orange.

I am a local leaf peeper and on the way home this weekend I had mom pull over to get these photos with my camera! People probably think I am a tourist but that’s okay.

And every time we wonder
What we left back in your hearts
Could you see we’re dreaming
Though our minds just fall apart
But we will end up somehow
With a peaceful mind
And you are leading me now
To the site where I flew from you
When your pace just scared me blind
We will come back and joke of days
When I sold you to the unkind
We will end up somehow
With a peaceful mind
And you are leading me now

Happy weekend!

(I really did want to bake some yummy fall treats this weekend…)

Last month I did a Currently in September post  and am going to attempt to do these once a month!

So here it is, our currents for my favorite month ever. 

Currently in October 

Me, currently…

This has been me all month and will continue to be me throughout October…

Current foliage…

Looking around outside my house right now catches my breath.

Driving around my little mountain town, I feel distracted, and can’t think of where to look first.

dress
Currently wearing…

My Hunter boots and my fringe jacket. A lot. 

The jacket was on sale from Forever 21 for $20, the dress is from goodwill. I am excited to wear my Hunter boots with a variation of a million different styles of long thick socks.And leggings!

outfit-hunters

Fox and squirrel leggings. And leggings, in general. 

I wish I could remember who blogged about these leggings I read about months ago, then obsessed over, and searched my local Walmarts for. I have the best boyfriend ever, who searched all over Walmart until he found them for me.

They have foxes and squirrels on them, so of course I needed them!

They also say they are “sueded” leggings , they have this buttery feeling to them.

Currently watching…

Definitely still watching American Horror story! So far, it’s not my favorite season at all. But it is getting better each episode!

But currently in October, I’ve been watching…

Vlogtober on youtube. 

Vlogtober is when you tubers post a Vlog every day in October.

I mentioned Vlogtober last year in this post. and this Mental health monthly faves post.

Here are my favorite Vlogtobers who I have been watching for a few years now!

Sarah Hawkinson:

Sarah is a favorite you tuber of mine in general because she loves Halloween just like me, she’s an introvert also like me,  and I love her style and watching her thrifting trips. She is also the reason I started shopping obsessively at Michaels for Halloween stuff, all year round.

Samantha Maria:

Currently listening to…

I have been enjoying this Autumn Leaves playlist made by Spotify.

Here’s my October playlist, which I’ll be adding to a lot.

I haven’t been very good lately about finding new music, though. Anyone want to share any I would so appreciate it!

I just found the song above too, Sunset lover by Petit biscuit, if you want to give that a listen.

Currently celebrating…

Coziness, warmth, and Halloween!

Every week Frankie and I celebrate a spooky night, where we light all of the fall candles, drink fall brews, and watch a scary movie. In a dimly lit and spookified room like this.

(Actually my room looks like this all year long.)

Hanging skulls and tree branch lights in a  wine bottle, and pumpkin candles, oh my!

Currently drinking…

Well, not right now, since it’s 11:30 am on a Saturday.

Fall cocktails. Fall pumpkin beers and ciders. 

The drinks to the right were Apple Jack and my friend’s Pumpkin pie martini, which was my favorite. Yummmm.

Currently excited and thinking about…

Excited….Well guys, I landed my first sponsored post, where they are sending me $75 worth of Halloween goodies, all picked out by me, to blog about! I feel so blessed and I can’t wait to share with everyone. The fact that I got to hand pick all of the items made me feel great because I know that everything I am blogging about are products  I would obviously buy for myself!

Thinking about…And I am attending a space-themed Halloween party the weekend before Halloween and cannot decide between being Mrs. Frizzle from the Magic school bus, Buzz Light year, or Marvin the martian.  I will be making my costume and might buy a few little things for it if needed.

What do you guys think?! Help!

What are you doing this October? jacko
