October and Fall is Here!!!

It’s October already!!!  How does this happen so quickly?  It certainly doesn’t feel like Seattle October weather yet.  Still having clear, crisp days with abundant sun.   September was a great month.  Here’s what I was loving in September:

  • Visitors:  Claire and my dad were both great to have in Seatown for several nights.
  • First trip to Colorado since I was like 10.  And got to attend a very nice wedding and stay up in the Rocky Mountains.
  • New fabulous cereal finds:  Peanut Butter cheerios are killer, Dulce De Leche cheerios ain’t too shabby, and some other great cereal finds from Nature’s Best.
  • Snack Pack puddings…I don’t know why.
  • Tacos from Camion (I can never get enough.  Reason enough alone to go to a Seattle sports event).
  • Black nail polish…it is back for me.
  • Pumpkin schmears appear at Einstein Bros. Bagels = major win!
  • Free Subway melts for a straight week.
  • Tutta Bella’s fig, prosciutto, rosemary and goat cheese pizza (daydreams about that).
  • Meeting my goal with my team.
  • Playing tennis regularly again.
  • All the new dresses I got at Express back for the wedding.
  • Masterchef, the show.
  • How I Met Your Mother, Season 1 (yeah I know I am a little behind).
  • My new camera (= free thanks to my company)

And of course October is the best month of the whole year.  I have always loved October and I don’t think it is just because my birthday may or may not fall in this month.  Here is what I am looking forward to in month ten:

  • Leaving for Austin for ACL in a week!!
  • Three course dinners (I have been enjoying these lately)
  • Seattle Restaurant Week (hence, more three course dinners to come)
  • New Fitz and the Tantrums CD out 10/9
  • Mumford and Sons, Avett Brothers, and many other favorite bands also just released their new albums
  • Starting the Journey class at church
  • Many more pumpkin goodies while I can (Einstein bagels, pumpkin pancakes are at IHOP, cookies, frozen yogurt, lattes, etc.)
  • A few workshops/classes for work to continue growing my brain
  • Working on my new goal with the team for the duration of the fall
  • Expecting a trip to West Virginia soon for work
  • My birthday…nuff said
Start to a 3-course dinner at Eva Restaurant in Wallingford. Butternut squash soup with creme fraiche and a spicy apple compote. Super yummy!
2nd course of dinner with Bryan and his friend Kelly (from Colorado wedding). Roast leg of lamb served over lobster mushroom risotto.
Chocolate, banana, and hazelnut bread pudding that Bryan and I shared. With homemade rum spiced ice cream. Not enough of that ice cream though.



Let the good times roll!!!
