L.M Montgomery said “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers” and I 100% agree. October is one of my favorite months because the seasons are changing and there are always so many fun things to do. A list of five of my favorite things to do in October is below and I would love to hear what you love to do during the month of October.
Bake Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
I really enjoy baking, but I like it even more when it is cold outside. There is nothing better than smelling the aroma of freshly baked goodies and it is so nice to come home to a jar of home made cookies. This time of year is the time for pumpkins, so I always bake a few batches of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies in October.
Attend an Oktoberfest
In Germany Oktoberfest officially starts in September and goes until the first week of October, but many cities put a weekend aside to celebrate in October. Where else can you do the chicken dance while wearing lederhosen and eat authentic German cuisine?
Go Apple Picking
October is when Apples are at their best and many orchards allow people to pick their own. Some will also host fun attractions like hay rides, corn mazes and sell fresh apple cider.
Plan a Halloween Costume For You And/Or Your Furry Friend
I have loved dressing up ever since I was young and look forward to designing the “perfect” costume for Halloween. I am not fond of store bought costumes, so I usually design something myself with pieces I have bought at vintage stores or sew my costume with the help of a pattern. My husband likes couples costumes and this year we have Bella, so we are trying to figure out a costume that works with the three of us.
Pick A Pumpkin From A Pumpkin Patch And Carve It
You can buy pumpkins from your local grocery store, but when you can pink your pumpkin out of a real pumpkin patch it really adds to the excitement of Halloween. After you find your perfect pumpkin carve out your favorite design and put it on display for everyone to see.
