Chill & Chat: Is It Hallween Yet?

It's been a minute since I just sat down and shared what's on my mind, what I've been loving, ya know. Just chill and chat time. Elizabeth is currently napping and The Real Housewives of New Jersey is playing in the background, so I'm kinda on borrowed time here. By the way can we just talk about how Bravo is bringing back Ms. Crazy pants Danielle for the new season? I've been watching since the very beginning and wondered when this day would come. I don't know her as a person, but she makes for a great reality tv personality for sure... I can't wait to discuss the new season with you all, I'm sure it's going to be a wild ride. I'm sad that Jac is leaving...she's my fave.

I don't know where you live but here in Ohio the weather has been NUTS! Fall hasn't been good to me so far.  My pregnant body cannot tolerate 90+ degree heat, it's too much. Hopefully later this week we'll get a break.... But let's be real. 1,000 degree temperatures wouldn't stop me from decorating my house on August first. I have pumpkins on my porch and country market candles burning all day long! It's glorious, even if it doesn't feel like fall yet. Have I mentioned the BBW candle dupes I found at Walmart? I'm planning a full review soon, but I'm always raving about them to anyone that will listen. They are unbelievable!

This season is one of my favorites (second only to Christmas) because I LOVE scary movies. Thrillers. Paranormal films. Even kids Halloween movies, I watch them all. I have to say that Scream is one film I could (and do) watch repeatedly without getting bored. Wes Craven is a genius in my eyes... The ending is so unexpected. It scares you, but has a funny undertone as well. I can watch all four everyday from August to November and be totally content. Unfortunately, the Scream series isn't exactly child friendly, so I've enjoyed watching Hocus Pocus with the kids. The Sanderson Sisters are everything.

Who else gets this reference? So accurate. 
October will be here in four days, which feels wrong somehow. I don't know where this year has gone, but I'm so excited for all the things coming in the new year. I've purchased Elizabeth's Halloween costume and I've even started Christmas shopping. What? It's early, I know. I like to start early so we are not super overwhelmed and end up spending our entire Christmas Eve in stores trying to nab last minute gifts because we didn't prepare. And who likes the crowds and struggling to find things because they sold out? Not me. Especially not heavily pregnant me... Which is also the reason I'll be decorating for Christmas this year in early November. Before you disown me, hear me out! I'm the only one that decorates our house, and my mid December I'll just be to pregnant and uncomfortable to get it done this year. Plus, the earlier it goes up the longer you can enjoy it. Win, win.

I think that's all my brain has to offer today, as we've jumped from two different holidays, reality tv and my fave movies. I think I'm going to fold laundry and visit Woodsboro... Wherever you are, I hope the air is cool and you are in good spirits. Until next time, thank you so much for stopping by. Bless!


  1. Thanks for sharing your thoughts/heart. I can't believe you've already started your Christmas shopping! I need to get started, too!

  2. I love horror movies too, especially Saw. I don't know why I like to scare myself, lol. And I totally get that reference because I own all the Scream movies and have watched them a bunch of times. I have already started my Christmas shopping too.
