5 Fantastic Things // October

5 FANTASTIC THINGS

I want to remember…

1 // Almost managing to keep Mark’s birthday present a secret without dropping a single hint. (Almost.)
2 // Carving pumpkins with friends.
3 // How warm it was for such a long time. (We had a good run this year, weather… what do you say we try to do that again?)
4 // Getting back to yoga after a long break, and feeling instantly more relaxed. (Also very sore…)
5 // Working my butt off… where did this month go?

I’m looking forward to…

1 // Our first anniversary. (I can’t believe it’s almost here!)
2 // Seeing the Macy’s Day Parade in person for the very first time.
3 // Seeing Austin’s face when he sees the Macy’s Day Parade in person for the very first time.
4 // Having an excuse to watch lots and lots of Christmas movies. (What? The holidays start tomorrow, right? Where’s my tree?)
5 // Pumpkin pie.

    You had my heart at Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. That’s my sister’s biggest wish in life and hopefully some day we can make it. So ready for the holidays!

      Aww I hope you do! I can’t wait to see it. As a west coast kid, I never really thought I’d get to go.

    I made pumpkin pie today and promised my husband I wouldn’t touch it until he came home… I’m having trouble resisting it…
