What I’ve been up to


October went SO FAST! We were so busy! Adam and I did SO many fall activities. I think it’s been the best October I’ve ever had, actually. We did a corn maze, went pumpkin picking, I bought apples and cider and made homemade pumpkin apple butter, we attended several fall festivals (Fall Fest, Pumpkin Festival, Mum Festival), went to a haunted cave, and hosted our own Halloween costume party. It was such a blast! I ate WAY too much and spent way too much for basically the whole month, but we made some amazing memories!


The main point: YALLFEST!!! It was awesome! You can see my full recap HERE.

Also, Thanksgiving! I ate WAY too much, lol. I enjoyed spending it with Adam and his family – my parents are in Florida, so I’m grateful to have his family up here to spend it with. On Black Friday we went to a nearby Christmas tree farm and picked out a live tree that we cut ourselves! It was so fun! I’ve never done that before and neither has he, so it was a wonderful first for the both of us to do for our first Christmas together!

Current obsessions

Movies: Harry Potter. Going into the holiday season always makes me crave a re-watch!

TV: The Mandalorian! Adam and I also binged Living With Myself, it was pretty good too.

Music: I found some punk rock Christmas songs that I am obsessed with! One is a cover for the Grinch song (it’s by the Suicide Machines) that is pure joy XD

Food: Pumpkin EVERYTHING

Games/Apps: Happy Color
