OCTOBER

october
It's the second of October, which means it's this sisters birthday today and the baby sister's birthday was yesterday! And my birthday is in a month (and one day, to be exact)! I love birthdays, but I am not sure how I feel about my 30th birthday. That one gives me mixed feelings.

Can you believe it is October? It seems just like yesterday it turned September and I was yapping about baby baby's impending arrival and now that she has been with us our days have never been brighter!

Well with a new month, come some new sponsors so be sure to check those out and give some of the returning ones some lovin'. We also will have lots of new giveaways coming and it is another month to make more family memories.

Good things this month that make me excited...

- This and this giveaway from my sponsors (and more to come).

- Halloween is coming and I can't wait to figure out what to make for the kids and a new halloween story.

- Both sisters birthdays.

- Our annual Fall-ebration dinner.

- Colder weather coming in.

- Pumpkin picking.

- Making pumpkin smoothies.

- Figuring out what I want to do for my birthday in November and bugging Ben and my family with my birthday wishlist.

What things are you looking forward to in October?

  2. You look SO PRETTY!
    I'm 29 too, but only turning 30 on next year, on may. When I plan to go to california and throw a party with my mommy, as she turns 50 on the same month.

    I look forward to october because it's when we are starting our new home's makeover.

  5. I know how you feel! I had my fourth little boy when I was 29, so I was excited to turn 30. My 30s have been awesome-I'm now 37, my biggest boy is almost 14 and my baby is almost 8. Enjoy your baby girl because the time will FLY!

  15. Well, hmm, I'm turning 45 in a month and a day and I can say that it feels like I just turned 30! The years don't even matter anymore! I think it's a complete state of mind... I just learned how to kayak and I feel like I'm 13 again, when I learned to sail! October is always a month of anticipation for the holidays... I'm so excited! And you are gorgeous Ruby!!!

  22. My birthday is November 3rd too (which I assume is the day you were born). Only difference is I'm going to be 28. Seems like you accomplished a lot in your 20s though!! I will say I am nervous about hitting 30, but you're closer. Continue to cling to God through everything and I am sure it will be more fun!!
