So by now you probably know that I’m a crazy person comes October; but even if I try, I just can’t help it! October means it’s ALMOST Halloween, and yep, that gets me sooo excited!!! And when comes Halloween, I want people around me to be excited as well. So this year I’ve created a fun and exciting to-do list (hello checkmarks!) for the 31 days of October for you and your family.
It’s not a calendar, nor something you have to do every day (but you CAN if you’re even more into this than I am!!!); it’s just fun little ways to incorporate Fall into your daily life and spreading PSL (Pumpkin Spice Love!). So grab a pen and write these down.
31 ways to celebrate Fall
1- Buy festive PJ’s… hum hello… you should clearly do this for EVERY holiday!
2- Make scary pizza. As you know, pizza is my number one go to themed fun food. See the pictures of the fun pizzas I’ve made over the weekend.
3- Visit a pumpkin patch.
4- Decorate your house. And buy mini-pumpkins for the family rooms and fall garlands for the beds.
5- Buy a new cozy scarf. Find someone who needs to spoil you… or just do it yourself!
6- Watch Hocus Pocus… kinda cheated… as I’ve been watching it since early September.
7- Make homemade costume. My husband would surely like to cross that one off that list; as it’s been costume central in the entire kitchen for the last few weeks!

Hope this list inspires you to be festive this season.
