Hello Monday, Hello October

Wowsers, it's October! I seriously love the fall on Long Island, I know, I said the same thing about summer! But I feel so lucky to be able to live in a place where I get to experience four seasons. Though if it were up to me, I'd have a little less winter. I really don't enjoy winter. Snow. Cold. Oil bills. Those are some of my not-favorite things. I do love a wood-burning fire though, and hot cocoa with mini marshmallows!

Here are some of the things I am looking forward to this fall...

Letting Molly run through the pumpkin patch and pick out the perfect pumpkin for our porch. Is it possible that they could open it early and let my family in to do that?

Long walks around my town. I really love where I live and I love exploring. Some times I will park my car on a random street in my neighborhood and pull out the stroller and go walking with Molly. She loves a good walk too. Once {a long time ago} I got lost while walking and had to call my husband to come find me!

Celebrating my sixth wedding anniversary. We'd love to go back to the B&B that we stayed in the night of our wedding, the Seatuck Cove House, but I'm certain when I say that we are not ready to leave Molly overnight yet. My Mom has asked for a Molly-Nanny sleepover for a while now. Not gonna happen — yet!

Halloween! One of my favorite days of the year, besides my Birthday. Molly and I are dressing up as cowgirls this year. Molly even has a great pair of cowgirl boys. They are super cute! Hubby s going to be a farmer. Yup, totally fits my hubs. We are going to have a little party Halloween weekend at my Mom's and eat and drink orange goodies. Fun!

The Bronx Zoo. We are taking Molly for the first time next week. I haven't been in years and I am so excited to see a giraffe. I will call her Sophie, since Molly loved her Sophie giraffe toy for so long. Now Sophie sits on the dresser on display with all Molly's other giraffe toys. We had a giraffe thing going on for a while. My nephew is begging me to go into the roach house with him — um, that would be a big N-O!

Other things we like to do in the fall...
  • light a fire pit and sit outside on cool, crisp nights
  • make apple cider in the crockpot
  • drink pumpkin spiced coffee
  • drink pumpkin ale beer — with a cinnamon/sugar rim
  • bake banana bread
  • celebrate my Mom's Birthday
  • decorate my house with leaves and pumpkins and ghords and owls (and acorns) — I like fall decor!

Today I'm linking up with Lisa Leonard for "hello monday" and lowercase letters for "miscellany monday". It's fun to link up!

Happy Fall! What are you looking forward to?
