Tastes Like October

Happy October!!

The past two years October has been the worst month for me.  Last October I was hospitalized for two weeks and had my appendix taken out and the October before that is when I had my full hysterectomy.  Needless to say I am nervous about what is in store for me this month.  I am hoping and praying for a medical issue free month. :)

The first day of October, which also signifies the first day of fall on my calendar, means pumpkins.  Everyone has an object that when they think about a particular month there is a memory or an object that sticks out in your mind and for me October means pumpkins.

I remember carving a pumpkin only once in my life which is sad.  I can't even remember the age I was when I did it but I do remember pulling the seeds out with my hands and grossing out with the texture.  I also remember the rotten smell when it's been out on the front porch too long which could be another reason for me only having one pumpkin carving experience in my life.

Our family never went to the pumpkin patches either and I've never taken my kids but I am going to try to change that this year.  So many of my friends do it and it looks like fun!

Oh how I love the flavor that is pumpkin!  Pumpkin pie is one of my top five all-time favorite desserts and the Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks is something I look forward to every year.

This year since money is so tight I bought some pumpkin spice creamer for my coffee instead and am actually sipping on some as I write this.  It just tastes like fall to me!  Yum!!  Oh and have you tried these?

If you are a pumpkin-lover like myself you are going to love them!  Husband wasn't much of a fan but I thought they were great!  They are pretty sweet but I was pleasantly surprised with how much I liked them.

A new month means new goals so that's my goal today!  I love when a new month begins.  It's a fresh start and another chance to get it right and who doesn't need another chance?

  1. That's awesome Christi. I'm not sure why we did not carve many pumkins. I never did as a child either. I'm glad that you do have fond Oct memories though and pray along with you for a healthy Oct.
    I love your writing keep up.
    Your biggest life long fan. :)


Thank you so much for stopping by! xo
