Thank goodness it's October!

My favorite month!!! 2 weeks from whence I last posted. I should apologize, Constant Reader, but I'm not gonna. I'll just let my Catholic guilt steep a little.

It's been a crazy, wild autumnal ride through Moxie-topia. Everything from Darling's lost teeth, to Handsome closing and opening another show to in-law visits and stray cat adoption and planning my sister's birthday party, it's been insanity. Not to mention the generic melee that the month of October usually brings.

Still, October is my favorite month and while I haven't been blogging/commenting, I have been collecting some pretty awesome finds from around the internet that are related to my favorite time of the year.

So, I brought you some stuff, that makes up for my absence, right?

Pumpkin Bites

I'm a HUGE fan of pumpkin pie and these are just so darling! I saw them over at Bakerella and now I'm making these for my sister's birthday party on Saturday. Get the recipe! I can't wait to make these.

(Side note: I LOVE making pumpkin pie, but when my grandma-in-law comes to visit, I can't make it with nutmeg because she's allergic. Who the F*CK is allergic to NUTMEG? Nobody, that's who. I think she's making it up.)

Leafy Luminaries

Gorgeous, no?

Autumnforest is one of my favorite bloggers. These luminaries are so adorable. Nice, cheap, easy decorating that even a kindergartener can do it. Go and check out her blog this month for some really great ghost related topics. She's truly awesome!

Scary Board Games

Ok, well, you were already half way to a party anyway with the pumpkin bites and luminaries, so you might as well hit the thrift stores (or Amazon) and find one of these awesome retro-scary board games. These look like so much fun! (notable exception: Ouija board. Read here if you want my full opinion of the damn things. I don't like repeating myself.)


Time to kick back with a Trick-or-tini or two (try saying that after having more than two), or one of these, and just enjoy Moxie's favorite month!

Even though I'm not doing the Ghost Posts this year (I really am busy, I'm not making it up!), you can still enjoy my archives and I'll probably post a few this month just for fun.

If you want to send me a ghost story, I'd be more than happy to have a guest blogger for a day!

I will have to see if I can find one of those board games. And although I don't drink martinis, a candy corn dessert would look cute in the martini glasses!
