Happy Wednesday, m' dears! How was your Halloween? Here's all the "dooky" details...
- If you're a little confused with the descriptor mentioned above, it's just Max's way of saying spooky. Ha Ha! I've got to admit, I like the way it sounds when he says it way better. Yes I'm his mother, but it's kind of fun to say instead. Right??
- I'm not usually a big Halloween person. My mom always made it a fun event when we were growing up, but then my interest in the holiday kind of fizzled in college. This year I decided to whoop it up for Max with pumpkin carving, cupcake decorating, toilet roll mummies/bats, spider webs strewn across the front door, silly books, etc. For the past two weeks he'd wake up every morning asking if it was Halloween yet and his excitement was contagious. It made me want to do MORE because he was just so stinking giddy!! As discussed last week, Max had a few costume options this year and he ultimately decided to go with a shark. Because our toddler doesn't do anything lukewarm, he put on a rather sparky (Or dare I say sharky?) performance for the trick-or-treaters that stopped by our house. According to Max he was "too shy" to go around collecting candy for himself, so he opted to hand out treats instead and enjoyed it just as much.
- For the first time in four years it legitimately feels like Autumn in Texas, and I can't seem to get enough!! The pumpkins and mums aren't rotting yet (Say what?!) and I've comfortably cycled through a dozen sweaters/sweatshirts without breaking a sweat. That's right! There have been aspects to our impending move that have proven difficult these past few weeks, but the crisp air and cool temps are enough to make me forget most of it. Well, that an a Pumpkin Spice Latte!
- How many of you have seen the movie "The Witches" (based off Roald Dahl's book)? I'm always shocked so few people know of it (Looking at you FLYBOY!!). It's available to stream free with Amazon Prime, so you should probably watch this childhood favorite of mine stat. SPOILER: Anjelica Huston is the head witch and she's PHENOMENAL!!
Alright, enough rambling from me. What are you up to? I'm dying to know.
