{Happy October!}

Monday, October 01, 2012



October is my favorite month. 
So much so that Tim and I started a tradition a few years ago to celebrate it's amazingness.
On October 1st we stuff our boca's with pumpkin pie & hot apple cider.
We drink pumpkin ale & dance to Santana's Black Magic Woman. 
We also watch Charlie Brown's Great Pumpkin Escape & fall asleep on the floor in pumpkin comas. 
Everything about this day makes me happy. 
EVERYTHING.
So here's to thrifted flannels, leaf angels, college football, and the Texas State Fair
October is going to be a good. Really good.
Ps- what's your favorite Fall drink? I'd love to know!

Texas State Fair! I haven't been in so long. I feel like in October I am finally allowed to break out the hot chocolate. The husband doesn't allow any premature celebrating, so I have to wait until a cold snap to break it out haha (allow is a strong word, just fyi)

Pumpkin spice lattes the S-bux. Jersey fresh apple cider. Samurai mate chai from Teavana. I could go on forever. I LOVE FALL <3

Em,
Like you I am just as obsessed with the month of October...it used to be for my birthday, but as I age, I seem to get less excited about it. Anyway, Pumpkin anything is my favorite drink and if were eating then it's pumpkin pancakes from Ihop.
P.S. beat you to the state fair this year. Had to of course head straight for the fried autumn pie, delicious 365 days later. Give the fried smores and the fried red velvet cupcake a try too! Here's to our favorite month and gaining at least 5 pounds! Cheers!

Hot spiced cider. Just bought my cider over the weekend and cannot wait to have the aroma filling the house with its goodness.
Love your October 1st-fest ideas!

October beverages are all about the pumpkin. So many different smoothies and milkshakes! I love bundling up drinking a cold beverage that tastes like fall. It's perfection.

Pumpkin pie martini. You have to try one, even for just a sip to celebrate the best month of the year!

Caramel apple shakes are amaaaazing.

Butterbeer!

Sam Adams Oktoberfest!

Emma said...

Good old hot apple cider! It's what I drink on the walk across campus to class on chilly fall mornings :)

Dana said...

I love October because here on the West Coast of Cali, summer is just revving up!(it's 92 today) My favorite Fall drink is a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks but I make myself wait until the first day with a chill in the air : ) Here's to Fall!

October is my favorite month, too!! We celebrated with pizza and Monday Night Football. :) (go bears!)
Fall drinks are the best...all kinds of chai tea, & hot apple cider. so good!

In October its hot chocolate. You can still sit outside in the cafes in a nice and sunny day - but its getting cold, so hot chocolate is perfect for me.
Plus I never ever drink beer... but on the Octoberfest of course I do ;) Have been last week and will go back to munich tomorrow! Horray to that and meeting so much pleople from all over the world there!

Hot apple cider and spiced rum. Yum! :)

I love pumpkin spice lattes. I haven't found a good recipe to make them at home, though. Everything on Pinterest is complicated and for multiple people.

My Baby Loves Sauce said...

I've been making pumpkin oatmeal smoothies for breakfast. So yummy! And homemade Pumpkin Spice lattes. Also Delicious. We also just bought our first bottle of hard cider at the farmer's market. I love apple season too!

Kait said...

PSLs (punkin spice lattes) from Sterbucks are what soothes my soul in October! It's just a staple in our little college community. However, I'm also a fan of apple cider and Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate. And yes, there is a gloriously simple recipe for that :)

I can never resist chai.

How do you keep track of all the days you celebrate? You are always making a party out of anything. Is it instinctive or organized?

Today's Letters said...

regressada, i don't know! my family always grew up celebrating small things. it's in my blood i guess! starting new traditions has also been fun :)

Rachel T said...

Apart from pumpkin beer and pumpkin spice lattes, another one of our favorite fall drinks is Apple Cider Margaritas!

5 oz. sweet apple cider, 2 oz. gold tequila, 1 oz. Grand Marnier. Rim with cinnamon-sugar. :-)

I love Fall too, and I even broke down early and started with the pumpkin-stuff in September! Thankfully we still have another month of fall-pumpkin-harvest-y goodness. Yay November!
