Monthly Re-Cap: October 2017

Hello Readers, Bloggers, and Awesome people!

Happy Halloween! 🎃👻
I hope that your month of October was a spooktacular one! This month was a busy one: my Husband's birthday and party, we had a friend visit, I had a dentist appointment and another tattoo appointment, there was a Halloween parade in town on Saturday too... I am ready to relax but know that is not going to happen because tomorrow is November and we are full steam ahead on the holidays!

It was a great month though and I am exited for November, especially because other than weekly Book Pile posts I have most of the month pre-scheduled thanks to Blog Ahead!! 😬 

Speaking of which, during Blog Ahead the goal was 31 posts scheduled for after October and I prepped all 31 posts! YAY and I got my TBR Pile done too - this was a VERY productive month!

How was your month? What did you read?
