Goodbye October

Oh, October, how I love thee!

When you come along, I love to bake my favorite autumn cookie..."pumpkin cookie with cinnamon glaze"...oh, my!

How I love the warm colors God dresses you with!

I love the windy, smoky sound of the air when it carries your voice.

The only flaw that you have, sweet October, is Halloween. Well, some folks love you for that, but not me. I forgive you. After all, everyone has a few skeltons in their closets.

This Halloween, I decided we would make something zAnY for the school party...

They're CUPCAKES! (way!) Recipe from Hello Cupcake (those are chocolates on top with grated white chocolate "cheese") . The 5th graders ate them up...figuratively and literally).

Speaking of 5th's my favorite one. He loves you, too, October.

And 45 Octobers ago, God sent me to my parents (and my sister...and my husband to his parents...yes, all on the SAME October day!)

So in celebration of my birth day, I bought these amazing cowgirl boots with birthday dollars from my ever-so-gracious in-laws. They're Luccese, and I've wanted them for quite a few Octobers.

And guess who else owns them?

Yep, Pioneer Woman! I received her incredible cookbook in the mail yesterday and it looks wonderful. I think she loves October, too, because look at those October colors she used on her book! (If you have never read Ree's blog, hurry and do so now!)

Oh, rich October. I hate to see you go. Thank you falling away a little bit at a time...

...leaving all your leafy clothes for November to catch!

I love it when you blog!!!!

Happy Birthday dear friend!! I hope you celebrated however you like. Are you a quality timer or a gifts person?

You got PW's cookbook? Is it that awesome? I've thought about purchasing it, but she gives so many great recipes on her blog... if you tell me its worth it, I'll purchase it.

So how do you and your husband split the birthday thing?

Hugs and much love to you from Cali! Oh, and I mentioned you on my blog, for like the 14th time...

Happy (belated) Birthday!
How sweet that you share a birthday with your hubby...There is three days between Me and my hubbys. I think it is a good excuse to celebrate for a whole week.
