One-Word Wednesday

Happy Halloween, friends!

#4OClock :: Navigating a #cornmaze. #Autumn #Fall #PumpkinPatch #FMSPhotoADay
{Navigating the corn maze at the best pumpkin patchΒ ever.}

{Listening to (and eventually enjoying) Red, the new Taylor Swift album. (Yes, my child has a DiscMan, not an iPod. She’s five, and we’re old school.)}

{Hula hoop tossing at the local Fall Festival. I know we’re only a few months into the school year, but so far I’m impressed with the community atmosphere of my daughter’s elementary school. This Fall Festival was a really cool family event/PTA fundraiser that kiddos of all ages seemed to have a blast at.}

{If you’ve never had Biscoff, you’re missing out. It’s a gingerbread-tasting spread that’s similar in consistency (and calorie count) to peanut butter. You can find it at World Market, and it is yummy! I found an fantastic recipe for Biscoff Chocolate Chip Cookies at Eat, Live, Run, one of my favorite food blogs. If you’re looking for a unique new cookie recipe, give this one a try! It’s definitely one of my new go-tos.}

{One-hundred ounces of Bud Light in preparation for the WSU vs. Standford football game that was awesome, despite a Cougar loss.}

{Remember the one-hundred ounces of beer? This is the kind of lasting memory it produces.}

{I’m plotting! A good thing, since NaNo beings TOMORROW! I’ve got my main characters and setting decided, along with my MC’s GMC and a loose plot outline. Tonight I hope to plot my first several scenes more specifically so I can hit the ground running tomorrow morning.}

{Pumpkin guts, I mean. My husband was deployed during Halloween last year, so this year’s annual pumpkin carving evening was extra special. My daughter ADORES Halloween and everything that goes with it — even pumpkin guts! Today she gets to participate in a costume parade and Halloween party at school, and then, of course, there will be trick-or-treating tonight. Can’t wait!}

How are you celebrating Halloween?
(And if you’re participating in NaNoWriMo, are you ready?)

    How have I never heard of Biscoff? Yum! I can already tell I will spend the morning trying to find this locally…sorry work, tasty wins out!

    Your daughter’s tights are awesome, as is the look on her face as she listens to the T-Swift album πŸ™‚

    Happy Halloween and NaNo Eve!

    I’ve never heard of Biscoff, but you had me at gingerbread. It’s entirely likely that we don’t get it here in Canada. We have a lot of what you folks get south of the border, but no usually any of the cool seasonal stuff and whatnot. I’m going to go on a mad hunt for this now. πŸ™‚ Great pictures again, Katy! Nice to see you guys enjoying the season and Halloweeny goodness!

    Thank you so much for sharing, Katy! So fun to see you guys enjoying the fall and especially your sweet girlie πŸ™‚ The look of glee on her face while carving the pumpkin is priceless! My four year old had that same look, until she actually felt those “guts”! She was a little shocked at how slimy they were, but she managed to get through it πŸ™‚ Hope you have so much fun tonight!

    The corn maze looks cool! I’ve always wanted to try one. Halloween was going to be a no-go for me this year since I literally just got back from a fun but exhausting vacation last week. BUT then my coworkers decided to do a potluck and I found the perfect costume to be (wait for it) Taylor Swift! So I do get to join in on the fun – that and my sister bought our pup a shark costume.

    As for NaNo, I’m also last-minute jumping in. So NO, I am SO NOT prepared, but that’s what pantsing is all about right? Haha. Have fun Trick or Treating tonight! Hope we get to see your girl’s costume!

      I LOVE your costume idea! My girlie went through a brief phase where she wanted to be Taylor for Halloween. We were going to draw a thirteen on her hand and rock the red lipstick and all, but then she decided on Merida from Brave instead. I’ll definitely share a photo or two. πŸ™‚ Happy Halloween!
