For the first time ever, I participated in a haunted house. I felt kinda bad thinking I made little kiddies pee their pants in fright.

Day-z dressed as a one-eyed monster, giving her two eyes!
Alice in Candy Land…the two of us had candy duty. I'm pretty sure Halloween is Day-z's new favorite holiday. Kids coming to door and petting her as they get their candy…can't get any better than that for this monster pooch.

There are three things that I've learned never discuss with people: 
religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin.

We love Halloween family fun.

I'm not sure if you can say I am babysitting...
They are dog-sitting...

Or if the dog is literally sitting on the baby.

But I do know we have so much fun.

Did you know that more babies are born in the month of August than any other month? I'm one of them. (That's all we need to say on the subject of my parents and babies. Yuck.)
Those cold October and November months are among us. In honor of that, I want to host a giveaway.
Whenever I attend a baby shower for a friend, I try to bring 2 presents. One is for the expected baby and the other for the mother. After all, she is the one doing most of the work for 9 months to get the baby here.

My new go-to place for mommy's little surprise is PinkBlush Maternity. Now I know maternity clothing might not sound like a cute present for those who are pregnant because you might not be feeling cute. But you can find adorable AND trendy maternity clothes at this site. No joke. 

I have personally seen and touched some of the clothing they sell and it is attractive, fashionable, and well-made. Their site is very easy to navigate through and their customer service is tip-top (two things that are very important to me).

For the giveaway, the nice people at PinkBlush have given me a $25 gift certificate to their website. This can be used on you or a friend who might need some new maternity clothes.
Good luck.

I have a friend named Tom. He likes to shoot guns. It's October. 
Put all of those things together
(along with hot chocolate and donuts thanks to Tom's wife Lesli)
and what do you get?


3 rounds of 25 shots each

All good events end with a trophy ceremony.
Well, at least this one does.
Guess who won 1st place in the women's* category...
 Yes, it was yours truly.
*No need to mention I was the only woman shooting.

Three of my friends and I were able to attend a super small mini concert by Matt Nathanson thanks to the Coca-Cola Lounge and My99.5 Radio.
For some reason, as we walked up for the photo, I didn't know what to say so told him it was my birthday. Of course he asked me what my sign is if I'm born in this month.
I quickly changed the subject and then he asked again. I blurted out the first one I could think of....Virgo. Not the correct sign for October. 
I then turned around and shook his hand telling him it's not really my birthday. I told him I'm a Leo.

I used to be a good runner. It has been a long time.
My friend Jenny invited me to run the 1st annual Witch's Brew Ha Ha 5k at Gardner Village. I've never visited Gardner Village before, but they apparently have super popular Witch themed festivities around Halloween time.
So we donned our witchy gear, grabbed our brooms, and ran.
It was spookily fun. And we didn't die. I think I need to start running again.
