Can you believe that October is almost done? What the heck has happened to this year?! I might be a tiny bit in freak out mode that the end of the year (nevermind the holidays) is fast approaching.  This last week was totally insane at work and at home, turns out the heat wasn't actually fixed over the weekend, only 2 of the issues and it took until Thursday to finally have it all repaired. The only thing I can say is thank goodness this happened now and not in January, and also thank goodness my husband is so handy!

This next week is also going to be crazy busy at work.  Then of course we have Halloween right in the middle of the week, but we thankfully did a trunk or treat over the weekend and won't be going out late on Halloween night.  We also have Munchkin's final soccer game of the season this weekend, again thank goodness because it is getting awfully cold to sit on the sidelines! This mama is ready to sit on the couch under a fluffy blanket wearing fuzzy socks and sipping on hot tea!

I hope you have enjoyed my month long blogoversary celebration and all the giveaways! Don't foget to enter my Frankenstein box giveaway and stick around for one more to close out the month! I also hope that you have been enjoying my Frankenstein week! I have really enjoyed reading all these adaptations and re-imagined books, and if there are enough out there maybe I will make this an annual thing!


  1. I can’t believe the year is ending and Christmas is right around the corner again! Crazy! I’m not ready for Halloween either. Probably keep it really low key.

    1. It is really crazy how fast the year goes by, especially the second half!
