October is over?!...

So first of all- Once again I failed to link up with Ashley over at Me and My Boys for Motivate Me Monday... :( Whoops! Mondays have just been very hectic days these last couple of weeks. Next week (fingers crossed) will be better! But- I have managed to keep up my "bring snacks to work" goal and so far I've managed to get back to pre-cruise weight! So more on that to come next monday!

Second of all- I did it!! I took one picture every day for a month and so here it is. 
My October :)
(... Looks like the last week and a half has been very "Bentley on the couch" heavy. Truth is, I'm very consistent at taking pictures of him awkwardly sleeping and not so good at capturing the random outings and events of what really goes on in my day!)
October was an interesting month that without a doubt flew by in a single blink. 
Looking back at this conglomeration of "1 photo a day" for 31 days, I think I'll remember this month for-
*The start of gorgeous weather down here in Central Florida
*A Tiffany blue box marking 1 year of happiness with my person
*Food and Wine 2011 deliciousness at Epcot
*Howl o Scream and Halloween Horror Nights, both of not so epic proportions
*Hitting 100 followers
*Carving my very first pumpkin
*The person's big "CarnEvil" Halloween event
* Losing my voice for what felt like the entire month (I'm still coughing!)
*And Bentley starting to get WAY too huge! ... At a whopping 11 pounds so far lol ok, maybe not huge. Just bigger.

No doubt in my mind I'll be doing this again for November. It's such a blast! There's so many little fun things that happen in our day to day lives that we tend to glaze over in the excitement of going from one "main event" to the next. These little pictures help me acknowledge, appreciate, and remember! 

Can't wait to see what I'll have to post on November 1st... Feel free to join me on this! Just let me know if you do. The pictures don't need to be fancy! We at least have our phones with us most of the time and that's enough to snap a quick shot of a quick lunch with a friend or an impromptu Target visit! So have fun!! Excited to see what your months consist of! :)

**Also!!**
If you stop by, head over to my twitter and follow me there so I can let you know when I get a new post up! Seeing my instagrams as they go up might also remind you to keep up with the "Picture a Day" challenge. I'd love to have you all following here and over there to help keep you in the loop!

And don't forget to contact me if you want to do a little blog button swap action! I love seeing the buttons of blogs I love following on my side bar!

Here's to another month down and a hopefully even better November!

I love that our celebratory drinks made the collage! I hope I make the November collage as "the time my favorite person in the world came to live near me again!"
