October Surprises Are Underway

One of my all time favorite traditions for October are the October Surprises.
My lifelong bestie, Laurel, and her mom were so obsessed with October and Halloween that it kind of rubbed off on me. Well, Laurel's mom, "Mama Marzek", would give out "October Surprises." They were just little things like candy, or a lip gloss or Halloween dinky item. They were awesome.

I've been in the habit of giving out October surprises and it's one of my favorite things to do.
Well, yesterday Laurel surprised me with tickets to the pre-screening of "About Time."
The movie was phenomenal.

It was created by the makers of "Love Actually" and had a stellar cast.
It's about a guy who comes from a long line of family time travelers and his life, love and consequences from his gift. Rachel McAdams is in it, and I was a little worried because she already stared in a movie eerily similar to this one. But it blew all time traveling romance movies out of the water. I highly recommend it when it comes out in November.

Also, on a whim, Laurel and I decided to fly to New York to visit our friend, Esther.
We leave in like two weeks.
It was super last minute, but I am SO FREAKING excited.
It's only the second day of October, and the surprises are already underway.
I got a box of RedVines from my co-worker, Magen, and I brought her delicious cupcakes from Sweet! by Good Golly Miss Holly (they are super delicious too).

I cannot wait to see what the rest of October has in store.
I TOLD you it was magical.


  1. Hurray for surprises and good months! Let's hope your magic rubs off on us too :)

    1. I'll definitely send the October Magic your way! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I took about six months off, and am so EXCITED to get back into it and meet all the bloggers that have blossomed in that time. You're so sweet and I LOVE your name ;)

  2. Okay, so I lied. I'm still at work and still on my phone but we're slow enough that I could check out the blog. :) this is the only thing I've read thus far, but I LOVE everything about you and your blog!

    Your sudden decision to fly to NY is something I'd definitely do, especially as I miss it terribly. Along with that, I already love October, and that tradition of little gifts is wonderful! I may see if I can start something like that with my roommates. :) I'm so glad you're back in the blogging world! I can't wait to get to know you better. :)

    1. Thanks Allison! I'm excited to get to know you too. And I hope you stick around!!
