Scout's First October

October is always a special month around here, but this year it feels extra special because it's Scout's first October. In the past week the weather has started to cool down, and the feeling of fall is actually starting to sink in around here. The cool weather has made it nice to take Scout on outings, and also easier for me to swap my regular iced coffee for a hot coffee. I can't believe how quickly the month is already passing by, but I'm determined to make it a wonderful, heartfelt month.

Lately Scout has been extra cuddly, and never seems to leave my side. He loves to pull every one of his toys out of his basket and insists that we play with each and every one throughout the day. He loves to kiss and cuddle, and he also doesn't mind me putting on his Halloween skeleton shirt. He really is such a sweet little boy.

I've been scheming away at an idea for the perfect Halloween costume for Scout. I originally wanted to dress him up as a candy corn, or a little pumpkin, but I think I've decided on something so much better! His costume is going to take some work, but I'm hoping I can pull it together before the 31st.

Today I'm going to write up my Fall Must List (sort of like my Summer Must List, inspired by 3,191 Miles Apart). My friend Courtney always makes such great lists (including seasonal ones) and I admire her dedication to get everything checked off her list. This season I'm determined to really take in everything, and I already know that my first "task" to accomplish will be watching Hocus Pocus (such a classic and always, always my favorite!).

Outfit details:
Button-up: Levi's
Jeans: Levi's
Call It Spring Satchel: c/o Jcpenney
Sandals: Saltwater Sandals

I'm off to class this morning and I am SO excited to finally turn in this analysis mid-term paper that has been looming over my head. It always feel so refreshing to send off something that you've spent so much time working on. I may even treat myself to something special after I turn it in! I've been eyeing this Nars blush palette for months now, so maybe this is the perfect excuse to finally get it! Anyways, hope you all have a lovely day!
