Not to mention the fact that I got off my broom sitting behind and actually went for (wait for it) a run this morning! For those of you who don't know, I am in no way shape or form a runner. I have some crabby knees already at the ripe old age of 28 and I will always choose to walk quickly over running. But for whatever reason, when I woke up this morning I was practically buzzing with energy and my legs wouldn't hear of a quiet sit down until they had worked off some of their restlessness.
Somehow during all of this, I managed to get out and do some festive things! And so, my loves, I present to you my first three days of Hallowe'en. In pictorial form, of course!
On the First Day of Hallowe'en,
We visited Oktoberfest, where one year ago exactly we met a realtor who became a friend and began the search for our home.
On the Second Day of Hallowe'en,
We took a stroll through the park. The first since Joe broke his foot; he is doing worlds better now, thank you for the well wishes! After which we stopped at the local tea bar for, you guessed it, a hot cup of pumpkin spice tea.
On the Third Day of Hallowe'en,
I broke out the beginnings of the decorations and did up the mantle! Some of the things on here were made for me by other artists, such as the grinning pumpkin man, the witch tin and the Halloween house. While some of these things stay out all year, grouping them all together and adding a few extras just makes my Autumn heart happy.
It's actually been cool enough down here that I've pulled the comforter out and put it on the bed so we can snuggle down each night in our chilly bedroom, sometimes after having watched a seasonal movie. The weather man tells me it's supposed to get back up into the 80's later this week, I couldn't help but frown at him. Summer's had her reign (since March!), it's time to let Autumn play. Bugger off, hot days! ;)
P.S. So far, we've watched two movies to kick off the Halloween season. Here are their trailers, for those who may be curious:
Tucker and Dale VS Evil
What are some of your favorite movies to watch at this time of the year?
