If someone asked you what you did this October, what would you say? I think it can be so hard to remember specific days and events when every day goes by in a flash, right? So I joined up with a couple of other bloggers to keep track of the month of October with a sentence and some photos. There’s a link up below if you’d like to see the other’s participating in this project, and a huge thanks for Leslie for organizing us!!
10-1: Both Rob & I braved the wind and walked to the new Starbucks down the road. Why you ask? They are one of the few stores that have the cold brew coffee!
10-2: On a day of blogging, this is the help and advice I get…. (isn’t she such a cutie??)
10-3: Our townhouse is part of a metro district, and the meeting tonight was suuuuper long!!
10-4: Packing day for our upcoming trip to Seattle. You’d be so proud of me, as both Rob & I shared a suitcase!
10-5: The first night in Seattle, we met up with Val, Rena, Sherry, and Jude (a blogette on my site) to see a fashion show at Anthropology! I need another pat on the back because I didn’t buy anything (at least at this store, LOL)!
10-6: On Friday, we traipsed around the city with my wonderful husband snapping photos at every turn!
10-7: Then on Saturday we visited a local eco-boutique called Drizzle & Shine who I found through another blogger! The owner, Jean, hosted a little party for us and needless to say, I brought home a couple of goodies!
10-8: We traveled home from Seattle to be greeted by snow—eeek!! Feel free to read about the entire Seattle trip in it’s own post.
10-9: Book club complete with some fabulous pear and champagne cocktails!!
10-10: I was honored to take a blogging friend, Anna, shopping, and so she bought us matching water bottles!!
10-11: The second Wednesday of the month means knitting day! One of my friends nicknamed me the knitting ninja—I love it!!
10-12: Today was a photo session for mom. We are trying to go other places to get fun photos, and it’s fun to be able to explore our area with a different eye.
10-13: Dinner with our fabulous neighbors for the last time before they head back to Phoenix for the winter!!
10-14: Better late than never, right? We finally made it to Cherry Creek Farmer’s Market to enjoy the local bounty! First farmer’s market of the year for us!
10-15: Nancy (the 60+ model) has been calling both Rob & I her design team as she goes along the steps to get her patio house built. Today was an appointment about where she wants the high voltage.
10-16: Lots of work in getting ready for the Bridging the Gap campaign for tomorrow!
10-17: The Bridging the Gap campaign was launched, and you can read all about my partner, Roxanne on the blog. I hope you join us in becoming friends with women of all ages, and helping us to blur those boundaries and end stereotypes between the age generations! I was also on the Cat and Kaehler radio show this day. Feel free to take a listen and spread the word!!
10-18: My hubby was able to work from home today, so we also were able to go out and take blog photos with some great weather!
10-19: Many days go by in a blur, and if I weren’t writing them down, no way would I remember that I finished off the bag of potato chips!
10-20: I have a bagful of alterations for a client that I finally made a dent in! And now I need to work on my items!
10-21: I’m so excited to have received some lighting to use for my indoor photos. Now it’s just learning to use it all correctly! Thanks to Carrie for her recommendation for these!
10-22: And today we finally transferred over my computer to my new desk station. Considering that we put the desk together last month, it’s about time…..
10-23: Mom, Nancy and I went over to our neighborhood boutique, Trendz, to try on outfits that we will be modeling in their upcoming Fall Trends Style Show. These are going to be our outfits and trust me when I say, I’m sure you’ll also be seeing some of these pieces in upcoming posts. They have the funnest clothes.
10-24: This was one of those relaxing days where I was able to get some blogging done and even squeezed in a nap. And I was featured on Imogen’s Inside Out Style with an interview!
10-25: I met with Nancy (the 60+ model) today for photos for upcoming posts! We usually meet every other Thursday, but luckily we were able to reschedule since today was 70 degrees and tomorrow is supposed to snow.
10-26: It was a crazy, fun time modeling in the Trendz Fall Fashion Show!! Make sure to tune in tomorrow because there will be an entire post dedicated to it on the blog.
10-27: It was another one of those “relaxing” days full of laundry, laundry and more laundry. How do 2 people accumulate so many dirty clothes?
10-28: There are 4 of us women that used to live on Quail Street, and we meet for breakfast every couple of months. Say hi to Cindy, Anna and of course you know Nancy & I!
10-29: We finally took the time to put together Rob’s new desk in our office! Luckily we work great together at these tasks, because I could see how it would be hard otherwise.
10-30: Now that I’m retired, I can meet up for lunch with friends, which is exactly what Stacey & I did!
10-31: Happy Halloween! Rob and I went to a chinese restaurant for dinner to celebrate.
