October Recap

I did so much this month, but just realized I haven't blogged about any of it!  So if you happen to have even the slightest desire to know what I've been up to during the spookiest month of the year, read on!

The month started out with a trip to Portland with my sister and parents for my cousin Ryan's wedding, which was amazing!  I wish we could have stayed in Portland longer, but it was a quick trip.

My lil' sis and me!

The lucky groom!

The next weekend, Tony and I headed to Leavenworth with some good friends for Oktoberfest!  Leavenworth is the cutest little Bavarian town in WA, and we rented a cabin for the weekend.  Oktoberfest was fun, and the beer was flowing!

 I don't know why Tony was being a creeper in the background!

One of the highlights of the trip was Tony's now-infamous cat hoody.  For some reason he didn't bring a jacket to Oktoberfest and it was really chilly.  While we were walking around Leavenworth, he spotted this beauty hanging in one of the gift shops.  We were all several beers deep at this point and thought it was a great purchase.  What we didn't expect was that this hoody would be such a chick magnet!  I'm not even joking.  Girl after girl kept coming up to him for the rest of the day, telling him they loved his hoody, or that they wanted to get a photo with him.  I think it will forever remain a staple in his wardrobe.

The next weekend, my family celebrated my Mom's birthday by all meeting up at a pumpkin patch.  The place was huge and had a giant corn maze.

On a hay ride!

Picking the perfect pumpkin!

The following weekend, my friend Natasha came over from Spokane to see our new house.  I used to live with Natasha and hadn't seen her for almost a year, so it was so fun to have some drinks and catch up!  We decided to check out the dive bar down the street from my house, which was having a costume contest.  We found the Eskimo costume at Goodwill, and I dug the jersey and gloves out of my cheerleading bag from highschool.  Sadly, we did not win the contest.

Which brings us to Halloween!  Chloe was a vampire this year, and it was fun to trick or treat in our new neighborhood.  There are sooo  many kids from Chloe's school that live nearby, and I'm so happy we picked this neighborhood to buy a house!

So, there's my October in a nutshell!  Hope yours was equally exciting!
