Truman by David McCullough – 5 stars {Kevin}
Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell – 4 stars
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness – 3 stars

Travel Adventures:
We stayed close to home this month!

Noteworthy Days & Events:
October 1 – Maternity photo shoot with Shawna!
October 2 – Kevin’s parents got a puppy!  K’s new baby brother is named Teddy and he’s a poodle.  He’s soooooo cute.  (Not as cute as Kevin though.)
October 3 – Baby shower hosted by one of the best family friends ever and her team of amazing co-hostesses.  We are so spoiled!
October 3 – Kevin’s final home football game, which was also Homecoming.  It came down to the wire and they lost by one point.  So sad.
October 10 – Kevin ran a 5K at Los Poblanos!  His time was 28:21, with minimal preparation and training.  He ran ONCE in the six weeks leading up to the race.  Let’s hope the bambino gets his natural athleticism and not that of her mother, who huffs and puffs her way through a mile jog and feels exhausted.
October 16 – Baby shower at work!
October 18 – Kevin’s diaper party!
October 24 – The bambino’s birthday!  Ava Elizabeth joined the world at 10:32 PM.

Ate: (new recipes & restaurants)
We met the Sanchezes for brunch at Prime.  I’d eaten lunch there, but never brunch and Kevin had never been at all.  New restaurant!  It was delicious.
Kevin and I took a Friday lunch at the Golden Crown Panaderia, which was great.  We each had a sandwich and Kevin had what they claim is the world’s best coffee milkshake.  I had two sips and it really was quite good!  I may need to test a few more around the world to definitively say it is the best though.

Tell me something about your October!

  1. Family picture! I love it! Hope you all are getting along well and surviving those early weeks! Gosh, those were tough. You look great!

  2. You are a family of 3! (Or 5, counting the cats, which are obviously just as important – if not more – as the humans.)
    Ava is a little angel. This is a beautiful photo! You look serene and gorgeous! Enjoy settling in with your sweet daughter ❤

  3. Love the little “bambino” !
    My October was pretty mellow…I did however see my 2nd concert of my entire life: Steel Panther! I’m going to do a post about it soon!

Comment! Please! I love comments like macaroni loves cheese.
