If you’ve never seen a planner video, don’t be like me and fall down the rabbit hole of adorable women decorating hyper-organized planner systems. You’ll be hooked, and life will never be the same. I am becoming one of those women, and I made my first “plan with me” video last week. I did a Halloween-themed spread (that’s planner talk for a week’s layout in a paper planner) in my Erin Condren Life Planner for this week, and I got it all on film.

So Owelette was probably where I messed up the most on these costumes, but Adam’s Catboy had its problems, too. And I did get her figured out. And, I think this might be my favorite costume (and I get to wear it).
We’re going to Disney World in September, and even though Halloween will be weeks away we’ll be going to Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. This is H’s first trip to Disney, and it’ll be our first time at the Halloween festivities. So I asked her what she wanted her costume to be, and we looked at some Disney characters and shows that she loves. She immediately settled on PJ Masks, and she was adamant that she would be Gecko, I would be Owelette, and Adam would be Catboy.
I’ve needed this week to kind of reboot a little and shift gears from fall/Halloween to HAPPY HOLIDAYS ALL THE THINGS TO DO!!!
But October was pretty great. Mild weather, a great party, a killer homemade Halloween costume for Hannah. I got TWO new chunky turtleneck sweaters, which means prepare to see those two sweaters in constant rotation until March. I do not play around when it comes to turtleneck season.
Halloween prep has taken up a huge, wonderful chunk of this month. It’s been a month of deadlines for some great projects, but it’s also been making Hannah’s costume and getting stuff together for this party. It was the most Pinteresty party that ever Pinterested.
Halloween has come and gone, and it was so awesome this year. We also got a ton of mileage out of Hannah’s homemade costume this year. I love this cow.
I read spooky and silly and atmospheric stories to everyone in the building this week and last week. October is one of my favorite times for read alouds, and having fifth and sixth grade is extra fun because I can read a few extra creepy things to them.
