Monthly Update: October

Happy fall! How are you doing? Drinking all the pumpkin spice?

In an effort to cram in all the fall activities possible, I may have overexerted myself this month. I had a fall activity planned for every weekend, which sounded like a good idea at the time. But now I am EXHAUSTED. Still, fall is great!

I went on a long bike tour and stopped at a beautiful waterfall. The fall color was just starting to come in, and the sunny 60 degree weather was perfect.

Next up on my long list of fall activities, I watched Hocus Pocus while eating a pumpkin spice cupcake. It had been so long since I had seen it, it was like watching it for the first time. When I was young, I totally had a crush on Thackery. (what kind of name is Thackery by the way??)

I also made artichoke dip for the first time. It was pretty simple! I used artichokes, mayo, and parmesan from Costco. Next time I might spruce it up with another ingredient… perhaps cream cheese?

What are your favorite fall activities and fall treats?
