September FUN Check-In & October Plans

I can hardly believe another FUN month has gone by and we are in the final quarter of 2014!

September was busy with lots of FUN get-togethers with friends, visits from and to Mama & Daddy, crafty time (including completing a mini-album for my 50 Things To Do Before I'm 50 list), and football watching. I enjoyed lunch at Crafty Tuesday, the library book club meeting, a Saturday women's retreat/brunch, and a drive down to Scrappin' Goodtime. And even though I have an aversion to shopping, I got out this month and bought some new clothes (in a smaller size)!

Robbie and I attended the Christ for India banquet and won tickets in the silent auction to attend the Dallas Cowboys versus the New Orleans Saints game the final Sunday of the month. The fact that the Cowboys won made it a perfect evening!

We didn't make it out to see any of the new movies this month, but we enjoyed a few here at home:  Frozen, Monuments Men, and Civil War Diary. We watched the final episodes of Season Two of the new Dallas and enjoyed the first couple of episodes as Season Two of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. began. We've also started watching the DVDs of Season One of The Bionic Woman.

Here's a look at my FUN September photo collage.

October is already off to a good start. I attended the library book club meeting on the first and celebrated World Card Making Day and enjoyed the beautiful weather all at the same time yesterday!

My FUN plans for the rest of October include:
1. A quick, but long road trip with Robbie to Ohio.
2. Watching the Dallas Cowboys and the Cleveland Browns football games.
3. Catching up in the Inspired Scrapbooking workshop and working through the new materials in the One Little Word class.
4. Getting caught up on my digital workflow - processing & printing photos!
5. Scrapbooking more layouts for (and hopefully completing) our 10th Anniversary Cruise album.
6. Carving a pumpkin!

 Did you have a FUN September? What FUN things are you planning for October?


  1. Sounds like another fun and busy month,Melissa.

  2. Another fun recap! Our September just flew by. We're off on a 12 day road trip this week which should be a lot of FUN!

  3. Wonderful collage - looks like you were productive on World Cardmaking Day :)

  4. Great round up of September and looks like you are going to have a FUN October!

    Wow - card making outside. Now that would be fun

  6. Let's hope October is just as much FUN for you as September sounded

  7. You really do have a FUN October planned. I hope it turns out that way---at least you are off to a good start!

  8. I always love when I show up in your monthly fun collage!

  9. September seems to have been good on the FUN meter for you! I hope when October settles down I can scrap just half as much as you have planned.

  10. Your joie de vivre is always infectious! Well done on the smaller size too .


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
