Monthly Moments | October

Hey! Man October has flown by! It has been a good month for the most part, but there have been a few pitfalls. I spent a lot of time in the Canyons which I loved, but I also spent a lot of time at home doing nothing. If I'm honest, to be happy I need a good mix of productivity, going and doing, and resting. I also took my first trip to the ER (for myself) for a kidney infection. I'm 100% ok if that doesn't happen again. 

From the top corner, going left to right: 

1. My favorite bump picture to date

2. This picture was taken up the canyon toward the beginning of October. I'm frankly amazed that the colors have lasted this long. I still see so much color around. I'm so glad that it has found its way to the valley :) I'm totally ok if it wants to stick around for awhile.

3. Brian and I started doing this 3-year journal. Some of the questions are a little lame, or they don't really apply since i fill it out in the morning and it's like "What was the most honest thing you've said today?" But, still fun. It will be fun to see how our answers changer or stay the same through the years.

4. A sneak peek from our at home photo shoot! This was one of the sillier pictures we took. In case you were wondering, I have that face on because I was joking that the baby should kick Brian in the face, and then she did! I was laughing about it through the next several pictures.

5. A small view of our trip up Provo River Falls during Conference at the beginning of the month. So gorgeous and SO cold. 

6. From our date up to little dell a few weeks ago. This is by far my favorite place and I'm so glad that I was able to get a good shot of it. 

To-dos and Goals for November:

- Celebrate our Anniversary :) 2 Years!
- Write in my journal at least every other day
- Make a batch of homemade Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies
- Write another letter for Everly
- Start dejunking the baby's room (so that the baby will have some place to live...)
- Start doing Yoga or some kind of exercise other than just walking around at work
- Look into Birthing classes
- Start Christmas shopping
- Start a gratitude list
- Think of some dates for Date night
- Visit my Visiting teaching sisters
- Find a way to do some service
- Attend the temple every week
- Get a dress that actually fits for the temple :)
- Do a Maternity shoot

Books read this month:

Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde By Robert Louis Stevenson
Dracula By Bram Stoker

Yeah, I had a really hard time finding books to read this month. I started about 6 more that I quit reading due to language and such. If you have any book suggestions, please send them my way!

Something to take away:

"It isn't what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it."

-Dale Carnegie

Thanks so much for reading! How was your October? Are you looking forward to November?
