October List

Jake has this cousin who is super clever and hilarious! Anyhow, she makes these lists of things she wants to do/accomplish every month. I thought I'd try out a list for myself and see if I can make October a little more exciting! I'll try and post things when I accomplish them.

1. Decorate house for Halloween. Make some new decorations.
2. Flirt with Jake every day.
3. Buy a new shirt that is out of my comfort zone.
4. Get a pair of brown boots--finally!
5. Get my hands on P90X.
6. Let the kids play in the rain. Heck, go out and play with them.
7. Dress up for Halloween. Be a kid--live again!
8. See "Thriller".
9. Finish Positive Discipline ( a book that I can't seem to finish).
10. Get into a size 8 ???

Anyhow, I have finished #1 at least--

Yeah, I made those. Cool, huh? It's just random jars. I painted them with mod podge and then took tissue paper and wrapped them. Then I cut out faces and glued them on. There are christmas lights in there. I love them!

Your Halloween decor looks so adorable. I see that you did this while Dad was out of town, perhaps so he couldn't stop you?? I want to know what he thought! :)

The house looked very Halloween'ish! I need to find some decorations - it is such a fun holiday to decorate for.
Happy Birthday to Cooper. It does seems like forever ago when you were pregnant with him. So much has happened since then. It was a fun party.
Good luck on all your goals!
