October by the Numbers

Here we are, the last day of October. I spent the latter part of the Summer, wishing that the Fall months would hurry up and get here. Now we are on the brink of November with Christmas right around the corner. Now I am hoping that time will slow down just a bit :-). I want to enjoy it ALL.
We had another fabulous of my favorites.

TWO A. the number of times our family was BOO'ed.

TWO B. family photo shoots this month...loving the new family photos.

THREE World Series games played by the Giants...hoping for that BIG win.

FOUR new albums added to my collection (John Mayer - Battle Studies Expanded edition, Taylor Swift - Speak Now, Kenny Chesney - Hemmingway Whiskey, and Sugarland - The Incredible,love, love new music!

ONE HUNDRED SIXTY SEVEN birthday wishes on Facebook. John counted them. He kept calling me and asking "Have you seen all of your birthday wishes"? It was very fun and helped make my day.

Wow, Raimi - 304 days? Now I have never been a diet soda addict, but I know lots who have, and that is a long time to go without it! I get hooked on the real stuff - Pepsi especially. I had to cut it out too, but I haven't been at it nearly as long as you! Way to go!
