~All the October Feels~
Even though it’s currently still 80 degrees here in Atlanta, the fall feelings are in FULL GEAR. Here’s what’s been going on recently in my October world ♥
But, before we get into all the fun stuff…
Is anyone thinking about Thanksgiving yet?
I’d love to invite you to take this quick Thanksgiving survey I made to help you this year! Just click the link below to let me know if you need step-by-step guides, gluten-free recipes, slow cooker shortcuts, or anything else! I can’t wait to hear from you 🙂
So, Taylor and I just got back from an AMAZING trip to Napa & Sonoma. Thankfully, we got back right before the devastating fires, so I almost feel bad writing about the wonderful time I had there, but I’m going to anyway.
Back at home, October, (and really the fall and winter months in general) to me are all about snugs. It may still be 85 degrees in Atlanta, but it’s autumn in my soul. Taylor and I close the blinds, turn the AC on 67, and get our cozy on. I’m talking leggings, giant fleece sweatshirts, enormous fuzzy blankets, and THIS CANDLE.
I am a candle freak and could go on and on and on and on about my favorite candles, (*makes mental note about future candle post*) but this candle is my ultimate fall go to every year. It’s at Target, no fear, you can smell test if you’d like, but this candle combines all three of my favorite cozy autumn scents into one PLUS IT’S CRACKLY. You can’t beat the snuggle factor on wood crackle candles. Also, go ahead and stock up on the smaller Bonfire Nights only version to get you through the whole winter. I think it’s my G.O.A.T. Target candle.
Ok, now back to my cozy list. Once I have my snug zone all prepared with blankeys, candles, sweatpants, and a disheveled bun, we gotta get started on the extras. (Side note, we pushed our two couches together to make a mega-couch snug zone and it was an amazing idea. Try it.)
I’m a wine girl, and after Napa I’m ESPECIALLY a wine girl, but in October it’s all about spiked cider, baby.
31 Days of Halloween
So, what do we do every day on our megacouch/ snug zone? Taylor has my scary movie education underway. We’re attempting a “31 Days of Halloween” movie marathon of all the essentials, and here’s our list. What are your must-watches??
Halloween (OG 1978 version)
Friday the 13th (Part 1/2/3/4)
Freddie vs. Jason
Nightmare on Elm Street
I Know What You Did Last Summer
The Exorcism of Emily Rose
The Blair Witch Project
I wanted to round this out with one last thing: a book I just finished that CHILLED ME TO THE BONE, in true October spirit.
Behind Closed Doors: A Novel
This one is a little dark, people. You’ve been warned. But it was scary, suspenseful, and totally addicting to read. I just NEEDED to know how it ended. I definitely recommend this one, (especially for this time of year!)
Alright, it’s 6:13pm on a Saturday and it’s officially time for me to get back into my snug zone life with Tay and Chewy. Happy October, everyone!
