Happy Friday everyone! I can't believe this week is over already. It's already the second week of October. Holy Cow! My daughter will be 4 this month and my baby boy will be 1! I'm so happy you are stopping by for another Fill-In this week. I'm sad they aren't every week anymore, but that just makes me all the more excited when they roll around every month! Thanks so much to Wife of a Sailor for another great fill-in! Much love girl! If you are a new follower please let me know and I will happily return the favor.
1. What's one thing you would like to change about the last month if you could?
I don't know. It was a pretty good month in general. The hubby was gone a lot this last month and I would have liked to have changed that a little bit, but wouldn't we all :P
2. What was your favorite thing you did in September?
Well, despite the fact the hubby was gone there was so much fun to be had in the month of September! It was the hubby's birthday and we did a little bit of family outing adventures. I took the kids to a couple Fall Festivals and Fairs. And one of my good friends that I originally met on a military support forum came to visit again (I love being so close!)

Frosting, from a tub with spoon...wanna fight about it?! LOL!
4. What are your favorite childhood Halloween costumes?
My grandma was quite the sewer and many many many of my childhood costumes were made by her. I also still have most of them and my daughter will get to wear them!
Some of my favorites were Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Bride and Scarlett O'hara!
This intense spoiling has only made it terribly hard for me to find costumes that meet my approval for my children, especially my daughter. Seriously, I am not buying a Halloween costume that has a picture of the person they are supposed to be on a little button thing on the actual costume. How ridiculous is that? They aren't even trying anymore. This year's Ariel costume that is in the store doesn't even look like Ariel? I mean, what are we teaching our children that everything has to have glitter and sparkles and rhinestones and sequins?! It's so ridiculous!! *end rant*
5. What are you looking forward to in October?
I am really looking forward to my Mom coming! Yippeeee!!!! We are going to walk around Old Town Alexandria, which I haven't done yet. I have to do some research. And we are going to go to Ford's Theater...which, Hello!!, who wouldn't be excited about that? I'm also hoping to do a little meet-up with a couple of my mil-spouse girls!
that's me (dark hair) with my mom and dad! Probably 1989 :)
Thanks for stopping by!
