I would have to say that October has got to be my most favorite time of year! I am instantly uplifted just by knowing that it is October 1st today. So I thought I would have a fun Saturday post (Lord knows I need it today!) on all of the things I LOVE about October!
1. Cooler Temperatures!
I am an extremely sensitive sleeper. If the temperature is not exactly where it needs to be, I have a hard time sleeping. I love the fall because it’s time to open the windows, and turn off the air conditioner . It doesn’t hurt that you save a little money on your electricity bill as well.
2. Leaves Changing Colors!
One thing I really miss about Utah is the Alpine Loop. It has the most amazing display of autumn leaves, you can’t beat it!
I actually decorate with pumpkins all year round. I love the way they make my house feel.
4. Fall Scents!
I keep then going 24/7.
5. Halloween (duh!)
I am determined to dress up this year. I usually am a spectator, but now that I have my little one, I’m planning to get more into the Halloween spirit!
I practically live in hoodie’s when the weather changes. They are SO comfortable.
7. Fall Clothing in General!
Yay for jackets and tights! I have some fishnet spanks that have done their time in the drawer. Not to mention, now that I’ve lost some weight I can now fit into a few more articles of clothing in my closet!
8. General Conference: Happening this weekend! I’m just gonna go ahead and out myself as a Mormon. This is the time when the leaders of our church get together in Salt Lake City and share spiritual messages throughout the entire world. An added bonus is that you can watch it on tv, so it’s pretty much like being able to go to church in your jammies. Being spiritually uplifted in comfortable clothes, that is definitely a win in my book!
9. It’s my mama’s birthday month!
That good looking lady is my mom. She is turning 29 this month (isn’t she a hottie?), one of my top supporters, and she’s just a pretty neat lady all around!
10. The newest addition to add to my list of why I LOVE October:
My baby girl is turning 1 year old on the 25th!
I am so excited you would think it was my own birthday! And let me just add that she is a walking fool right now. I am so proud of my little munchkin!
There are just a few reason’s why October is my favorite time of year. Now I get a chance to start fresh with a new month and make some new goals (more tomorrow on that)!
What is your favorite time of year?
