Happy 1st day of October!

It’s been beautiful in the Pacific Northwest and I’m jumping back into things after spending a few days on the coast.  It’s definitely my happy place!

Last week, I was able to set-up all of my fall decorations.  I love how our home looks this time of year.

And even though we’ll hit up the pumpkin patch later in the month, we picked up some pumpkins for the front porch to make the area more festive.

But as we move into October, it’s time to look back at the Fat Mum Slim Instagram Photo-a-day Challenge for September.  Once again I got crazy behind, but I was still able to get some fun photos.

Also, Tyson has been using Instagram more and some of my favorites that he took this month include:

My girl cooking pancakes for the guys.

My son looking stylish for Homecoming.

My guys at Oktoberfest.

Why exactly do we celebrate Oktoberfest in September?  I’ve never understood that and it becomes a topic of discussion in our home every year.  Also, in other bits of randomness… we’ve been noticing the way October gets played with in store promos like “Rocktober” and “Bricktober”.  I’m suddenly on the hunt for more creative “…tober” mentions.  What’s the most interesting twist you’ve seen on “October”?  And as always, are you playing along with the Photo-a-day Challenge? Let me know in the comments below.

Linking Up to Get Outta My Head, Please and all their fun fall festivities.
