Hi there, October!


I guess I need to get over this whole thing, but every time a new month comes along, I'm blown away, like it's the most groundbreaking thing that's ever happened. It also blows my mind that I've been in my new Austin, TX home for three whole months. It feels like I just got here, but it is finally feeling real. LOVE it. Even though it's still quite toasty here in central Texas, October 1 is the day that I give myself license to go into full fall mode. So, as of today - ITS GO TIME.

I love festiveness, I love the seasons and I love to be obnoxious about these loves. So, if you're one of the lucky few in my real, everyday world, get on board. It's officially Fall. I'm excited most for these Octobery things...

TX/OU Weekend

It's a favorite football tradition of mine. For the first time in a long time I won't be in Dallas for the craziness of the game, but plan to debaucherize no less. I've actually never spent the weekend in Austin. New adventures - YES!

Delicious Hot Coffee Drinks

I really don't ever go buy fancy coffee beverages until the weather gets crisp, it's about time. I love pumkin spice lattes - ALOT. I know they've been out for a while, but I've refrained. This October 1 thing has to be a hard and fast rule. Otherwise, things just get out of control.

Boots and Scarves

Likely it won't get anywhere chilly enough this month to get to bundle up, but I love boots and scarves more than most things. I'd copy the S out of this outfit if it weren't still so danged hot.


I like having them on my porch/doorstep as a reminder of the festiveness. I also love jack-o-lanterns. I also love pumpkin-related recipes. There's a lot to love about the orange gourd.


Favorite holiday ever. I'm LOVING this I've got a few good ideas for human costumes in mind, but need to get focused. This is a big decision and I'm flying solo this year. Watch out, world!

On top of all the festiveness, I have lots of fun visitors coming to Austin to entertain. I'm probably most excited about that. October is looking pretty good!


  1. I am totally the same.. it's like the 1st of the month is a freakin' holiday or something! I'm shocked each month!

  2. It is so nuts to me we're already in October!! Where did the time go?

  3. I'm super excited for the Red River Rivalry this weekend!

  4. Fall is my favorite so I’m so excited that it’s finally October! I love college football, sweaters and scarves, the pumpkin patch and hot apple cider (not a coffee drinker). It sounds like you are going to have an awesome month. Yay for fall!

  5. Love fall and love that outfit, I may have to go buy it right now!


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
