Happy October!

October is one of my very favorite months. Not only do I love the change in weather (we finally go from 98 degree highs to 88 degree highs…welcome fall!), but I’m also a huge fan of Halloween. The candy, the costumes, the decorations – it’s all so fun and festive! But even more than that, October brings two of my favorite annual events: the Shrine circus and the Texas State Fair.

Every year, Ben and I go to the Fair and spend the whole day watching shows, enjoying live music, eating terrible yet delicious foods. We don’t even ride any of the rides or play any of the games – we’re too busy doing all the other fun stuff that most people pass up. It’s an annual tradition that we never miss, and I’m excited to announce that we’re heading there next Saturday! The official week-long countdown has begun! I wonder if we’ll try this fried concoction this year:

Because I have Halloween decorations to put up, and because I needed a relaxing night at home after a Julie Powell-esque week, last night’s dinner was Thursday’s beef casserole leftovers. Comfort food, cool fall air coming in through the open windows, and a lapful of cats makes for a good Friday night in my book!

Happy October, everybody!
