Somehow it's already October which means it's time for all things pumpkin (I refuse to get on that bandwagon in September), cooler temperatures (though not really where we are), and brainstorming Halloween ideas for the family. Since Halloween is a Saturday this year, and Bug is officially mobile, I'm excited for her first "real" trick or treating experience!
Here's what's going on in our neck of the woods these days--
eating everything pumpkin, naturally. I love making pumpkin breads, mini donuts, and pie. I need to find some healthier ways to get the same flavors. ;)
exploring our new home which has been really fun so far. We never imagined we'd be on the west coast so we are trying to soak up everything we can during our limited time here!
wearing more "fall" type clothes, though the weather here isn't what I'm used to so there are still plenty of shorts/t-shirt days. The past 4 autumns in Japan were way different from "home," marking the beginning of the snowy season, and this side of the Pacific is different in its own way!
admiring all of the fall/Halloween decor in the stores! I've never been a big fan of decorating but all of the cute stuff out there is quite tempting.
collecting memories! Our time in this home is quite limited and we are trying to experience as much of what this place has to offer as we can. Bug had her first trip to the beach the other weekend and it was pretty adorable.
What are you up to this month?
