I haven’t done a 10 things to smile about post in a few months. I was on a roll. And then August was kind of tough. September was fun, but still mentally tough. October has been much better (with even better things to come, that I haven’t shared in this space yet.)
So let’s get to it, shall we? I’m linking up with Emmy with my 10 Things to Smile About – the October edition!
1. Birthdays! My birthday, specifically. It was such a great weekend with good friends (and friends I didn’t anticipate coming to my party were in town!) And glow in the dark ring toss. What more do you need?
2. Corn mazes. Corn mazes. Corn mazes. We’ve been to the corn maze by our house three times this year. Twice this month. And now it’s closed. It was really fun while it lasted, though.
3. The Thomas Wolfe 8k! I PR’d! It was great!
4. Mars Hill University’s homecoming. The toddler and I attended and there’s so much music that it always makes him (and me) smile.
5. My sixth wedding anniversary! I didn’t blog about it, but know that it did happen (about two weeks after my birthday.) We had a good weekend.
6. MUSIC. We saw Matt Nathanson and Joshua Radin the week after our anniversary. My mom kept the toddler overnight so we could go and it was just a phenomenal show.
7. We cut our cable tv! I didn’t think this was really something I should smile about it, but I’m SO happy we did it. We’re saving money. We have clearer entertainment. And we don’t even watch a ton of television as it is.
8. Fall TV. Yeah, I just said we don’t watch a ton of television, but I have several favorite shows and I love fall when they all start over. (I dislike television during the summer, which is just as well since we’re really not around to watch anything.)
9. Little Gym. We started taking classes two weeks ago and the toddler LOVES them. We have two more classes left (I bought a Groupon for four classes) and then we have to decide if we can afford more classes and if a class works with our schedule. (I’d really love to have a job soon, you know?)
10. The last week of October. Need I say more?
