This Month I Love...

Can you believe it's nearly the end of October? So it's time to spread some love for:

1. Pumpkin custard (from a local place called East Coast Custard)-can you say pumpkin, cinnamon, pecans, marshmallows and nutmeg? Divinely rich and soooo fall.
2. Learning how to make chunky applesauce and apple pie (can't wait to use up all of those apples).

3. Channing Tatum in the movie/book DEAR JOHN. I may or may not have watched it three times. I may or may not be hard up from hubby being gone (he'll be home TOMORROW).
4. My new Long and Lean jeans from The Gap (mine are in a darker wash, and fit me like a glove).

HOW ABOUT YOU?

HAVE A FABULOUS WEEKEND!

Um, yeah, Channing in Dear John...not good if you're wanting your hubby. Hah. New jeans, me need me to get a pair.

Enjoy your weekend, too!

The custard looks absolutely divine. I haven't made any homemade apple sauce yet, but I do have a whole bag of apples in the frig. - maybe this weekend.

I'm looking forward to renting Pumpkinhead and a few other horror movies in anticipation of Halloween. (Hugs)Indigo

I love jeans and a hoodie weather! But now I miss Seattle.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Yay on hubby coming home tomorrow!

I still have to watch Dear John. Hopefully the DVD is coming out soon. :D

Anne said...

Mmm yum! I had a pair of long and leans awhile back... I wonder if they'd still fit.

Rachele Alpine said...

You have to check out the pumpkin ice-cream at Mitchells...it's sooo good!

And I love Gap's long and lean jeans...I may own six pairs (shhh!). I have the dark rinse too, but they fade so fast. They're one of the only pairs of jeans that I can find that fit short me good.

I love pumpkin everything and anything!

Meredith said...

Yay for this list! It made me so happy. I want to go make cinnamon apple muffins now. And watch Dear John again (oh, Channing Tatum...)

Samantha Vérant said...

Hmmm. I'm hungry now. You have a good w/end too.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

That custard sounds yummy. Homemade applesauce is the best.
Have a nice weekend.

Krispy said...

Mmm, now I want a pumpkin spice latte.

Nothing like a great pair of jeans. I'm loving BDG's ankle cigarette jeans right now. I'm short, so the ankle versions hit just right as a normal pair of skinny jeans for me. Haha.

Enjoy your weekend!

Oh how I want to try that ice cream!!!!!

Pamela said...

I die for homemade applesauce and make it often! It makes the house smell like Fall.

Amy said...

I love everything pumpkin and fallish! Need to Netflix Dear John...

Melissa Gill said...

One question. How the heck do you eat pumpkin custard and fit into cute jeans?????

Melissa said...

Those jeans are freaking adorable!

Dear John is SO good. I really loved that movie -- really tugged at my heartstrings.

I want pumpkin custard.

Lourie said...

I so desperately need new jeans! Mine are too big! Yay! I love that.

I am going to make some pumpkin muffins next week. I am going to try and slim them down a bit.

I am looking forward to Halloween. I love to see the kids all decked out. I get dressed up too. It's loads of fun!

The pumpkin custard looks delicious, and I love homemade applesauce. I have some apples picked fresh here in NC and need to make some! Those jeans look great! Reminds me I need to get some, although I won't look that good in them!

Little Ms J said...

Yum! I can't wait to start making my apple pie. I love this time of year!

Guinevere said...

Nom, I love custard but I've never seen pumpkin custard - I want! (I'd also take a side of Channing).

Fun idea for a blog post, I might borrow your theme if you don't mind. Fall is one of my favorite times of year and there are so many things that make me happy around this time!

I am absolutely loving Gap's jeans as well. I just said that on my site too. I forgot all about the Gap and had a Groupon coupon so I got a great pair of jeans for like $20

Homemade applesauce is always the best! I haven't heard of pumpkin custard but it sounds good & a great way to get some extra vitamin A!

Janet Johnson said...

I love getting new jeans! Enjoy. :)

Two Normal Moms said...

That custard looks to die for! YUM!
Nothing like getting a great pair of jeans that fit you well - it's a great feeling!

I hear you. My favorite month of the year is almost done :( But not without some Halloween festivities first! BTW - I'll have to check out those GAP jeans. I'm on the lookout for some new ones :)
