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!



  1. You did a lot of fun stuff! Lovf all the pics and the recap

    1. Thanks! Yeah we did pack a lot into this month. I need some relaxation now! Lol

  2. Hoooray!!! You're back! You've been missed! You and your sister both have beautiful hair. I'm jealous! :-)
    Ahhh, the cat hoodie. A staple in every man's wardrobe! Real men wear pussy (cat) sweatshirts!
    Chloe is the spitting image of Tony, cracks me up! Her costume is so cute!
    PS- You didn't win the contest at the bar cause you weren't dressed slutty enough! HAHAHAH

    1. I was sitting at work yesterday thinking "I really need to make a post" so I decided to just use some Instagram pics. Better than nothing I guess?? I even missed my bus because I was so determined to finish the post!! Don't worry, I'm totally wearing my clip in extensions in the first pic! But yes my sister does have long and thick hair, I'm jealous! Mine is baby fine. Haha pussy sweatshirt! And yes Chloe is a carbon copy of her dad!! She also looks a lot like her mom. (I'm not her mom - not sure if u knew that!) Based off my childhood photos, my offspring would not be nearly as cute haha.

  3. Looks like you had a fun October, and were very busy! Glad you were able to give us an update :D
    That cat hoodie is too funny. Love Chloe's costume!! She does look just like Tony!

    1. Hi! Sorry for the late response. :) November has almost been as busy as October! I do love that cat hoodie, and the best part is it smells like ice cream and cotton candy, which were both being sold in the same gift shop. I never want him to wash it! Haha.

  4. oh i am so glad to hear about the great neighborhood and friends for chloe!!!

    1. It was one of the main reasons we chose that house... I love it! It's such a contrast from working in downtown Seattle (kinda shady sometimes) to then going home to such a cute & friendly neighborhood.

  5. Just saw this!! But I follow you on Instagram so I was kind of up to date. Time for a november post!


I love reading your comments, and promise to reply!
