I know it’s not October yet, and I know it’s not Halloween yet — but I DON’T CARE!
This weekend is the weekend!
We are packing up all of our things and moving out of Pittsburgh. We’ve been both dreading and looking forward to this moment for awhile. We’re dreading it because — really — who enjoys moving? It’s easily the most annoying thing to do when trying to look forward to going to a “new” place. Somehow, Bret and I have really acquired quite a lot of things/items/shit since being together for 6 years… and that definitely doesn’t help our cause.
Ughhhhhhhhhhhhh. I’m going to complain about moving until it’s finally done. Ok? Ok.
One thing these past two days that has really brightened my spirits is coffee. Obviously, I love coffee and drink it every single day, but it’s nice to drink it with the weather being crisp and muggy. During the winter, I add cinnamon to the coffee filter with the coffee to give it a little spice. Yesterday, I really wanted my coffee to taste like pumpkin spice, so I added cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. I don’t remember the quantities, but I went by smell — if it smelled like pumpkin, I was good to go. It actually turned out really well! Bret even liked it (which I didn’t think he would). I did the same thing for this morning (adding a little extra ginger) and it tasted so yummy 🙂
Next Saturday is the start of my most favorite month of the year — OCTOBER!!!!!!
I am considering taking Bret to a haunted house tonight (despite the need to pack up our entire life) just because we need to get out of the place for a little bit… I doubt it will happen, and we’ll probably go next weekend, but I’m going to try. Usually, during every weekend in October, we do something Fall or Halloween-related… whether it’s going to a corn maze, pumpkin patch, haunted house/trail, watching scary movies… etc. I think that you can feel more like a kid during the Fall + Halloween than any other time of the year. Bret and I still haven’t finalized what we’re going to dress up as, but I like the idea we have for right now.
I’M SO EXCITED!!
Have a great weekend everyone… And wish Bret luck that I don’t bite his head off during the move.
