happy october first!


i can't tell you my excitement at October's arrival! i love fall. mostly, i think, because it means my birthday is close. here comes number 23! my cousin, Katie's, gorgeous outside wedding (pics to come!) this weekend, felt like the perfect farewell to the summer, and welcome to the fall.

one of my favorite things to do during October is watch spooky-but-not-so-scary movies. i'm all about the fun scarey movies. addi and i don't do scarey. too much creepy in the world to watch more of it. . .SOOOO, what i'm getting to is that i (along with members of my family) have created the perfect spooky movie list for you to enjoy:

Thanks for the list. I don't like anything to gross or scary either. I have only seen maybe two of those, so I should get going!
