This is my absolute favorite time of the year. All of the leaves turn delightful golden, orange, and yellow. The air is crisp and clean smelling and there's a slight magic to it as well.
I mean sure, I also love it because my birthday is tomorrow, that's a plus. Then Halloween is right around the corner. Halloween is my favorite holiday, followed closely by Christmas. I love getting dressed up and going out and doing fun Halloween-ish things. Pumpkin patches and corn mazes, bobbing for apples and going to haunted houses. All good in my book.
Of course no holiday would be complete without watching my favorite themed movies! Hocus Pocus, Casper, and a few others top the list of must-watch Halloween-time fun. Sadly, most of my collection is still in my parents' garage, but the essentials are here. I'm thinking Saturday afternoon for the movie-fest.
It actually snowed here today, which is insane. Snow followed by a small hail shower. Certainly an interesting start to my morning. I commute to work/school on a scooter and today I was just not feeling it. I should be leaving for school right now, but instead I'm writing to you lovely readers. I can miss a day. It's fine. lol.
For my birthday shenanigans I'm not quite sure what we're doing. Hubbs has a few surprises planned. Saturday evening we're going to our favorite Brazilian Steakhouse and are gonna gorge ourselves on an endless stream of expertly prepared meats with his sister and her husband. At some point we're going to go see ParaNorman at the $1 theater because I've been begging to see it since before it came out. Sunday we're going to go to BW3's and watch some football, because I know that's what Hubbs wants to do and they sent me a coupon for free dessert. Woot.
As I near the big 3-0, I do realize that although my life hasn't quite turned out the way I thought it would, it is pretty awesome. I know that over the next however many decades, there will be more ups and downs and adventures all around. I can't wait and am very happy that I get to share it with my best friend.
