Counting Down to Spooktober

I can’t believe tomorrow is October…

This means all the cobwebs and dust in my home just became Halloween decorations.

My type of spooky is a good horror movie or book. But I mostly love the cutest side of Halloween and October.

Me: I love Halloween!
Everyone: What’s your favorite scary movie?
Me: oh. No, I mean… I love Halloween, like… dancing pumpkins,~spooky~ ghosts, a little bit of singing, etc.
Me: Y’all like Mickey’s House of Villains?

I thought I would be ready to get spooky but just like always I’m not.

I’ve been too busy that I haven’t even had time to pull out my fall decorations. Which are diy harry potter candles and a tiny whomping willow.

I only started pulling out my pumpkin decorations today because I found a cute DIY at target, and I just wanted to create a vibe for my nieces when I have them over on Friday. I need to buy fake spider webs, and a cauldron for my witches brew punch.

I just realized how fast this year has passed and how it feels like I haven’t done that much other than work—the tragic tale of being an adult.

I have an October bucket list, and some of it tends to get pushed to the side as I prepare for Halloween. So if I can do any of this before Thanksgiving, I’ll consider this fall a success.
