{October Recap}

What can I say, I am back to being a blogging flunky.  It just seems like there is so much going on & time is flying by.  Tomorrow is November 1st.  November 1st people!!  Like it's almost Thanksgiving & Christmas. The Hallmark Channel started playing Christmas movies on Saturday {yes, I did watch all weekend!} & XM Radio is starting their Holly Channel on Wednesday.  I am so.freaking.excited. =)

Anyway, back to October.  October was full of lots of fun stuff as well!  It's still hot here in Texas, but I sucked it up & made the most of it anyway.  Here's a little recap of what's been happening in October!

{Lots of Friday Night Lights}
There's nothing quite like high school football so several Friday nights were spent here!
{Camp For All Gala}
My brother had to go out of town so my sister-in-law invited me to be her guest at the Camp For All gala.  It was fun to get dressed up & help support such a truly remarkable organization that helps special needs children. 
{Parade of Homes Tour}
One Sunday afternoon, my brother, sister-in-law & I went on a parade of homes tour in a nearby town. OMG!!  Talk about wanting to come home & redo my entire house. =(  Several homes featured the "fixer upper" look & I absolutely LOVED it.  White cabinets, black countertops, shiplap...  Dang you Parade of Homes!!!

{Hooray for Good Mail Days}
Within a matter of a few days, I received Mix & Mamma's cookbook, The Magnolia Journal magazine, The Magnolia Story book & this rug.  Seriously, the best week ever! Lots of late nights reading here lately.
 
 
{Aggie Football}
The Aggies tried to BTHO bama...but unfortunately they beat us.  But Amy & Khloe came over to watch the game with me & Nola so all was good.  This past weekend, Amy, Khloe, Mason & I went to the A&M/NMSU game...it was Khloe's first game & we had a great time!  We won 52-10...I love those stress-free games! =)
 
 
{I Voted}
There's not much else to say about that.  But pray for our country either way.
{I'm Going to Have Another Nephew}
We found out last week Colby & Jodie are expecting a boy!  Bo Jeffrey Finke is due around the first of April.
{Sleepover at Aunt Casey's}
Morgan spent the night this past Friday night...we did hair & makeup, watched lots of Disney Junior and ate mac & cheese at midnight. It was 24 hours of pure Heaven for Nola...to say she adores Morgan is an understatement {as seen by her need to constantly be touching her...even while she sleeps}.
{Halloween}
And that brings us to today - Happy Halloween!  I can't wait to pass out candy this evening & see all the adorable trick-or-treaters.  Nola is celebrating Halloween today at doggie daycare...she had to go in costume so she's a "rufferee" {not girly I know, but you try finding a costume last minute for a 75 pound dog...there's not too many XL left!}.  More pics to come!
So that's what I have been up to in October!  Nola celebrates her 2nd birthday this week & my Christmas tree will be going up soon...so stay tuned!
