October excitements & decisions

by - Wednesday, October 01, 2014

Well hello there October, how nice of you to arrive. 

I love October !! I love that the countdown to Christmas has begun, carols and parang have started playing on the radio and everyone settles into a jolly mood. 

Although this week has been a quiet one (which honestly was much needed), this month will have a few excitements. 

On the 19th, there is the Kaleidodash 5k, which in short is a colour run with a rave party after. Here's a peek at last years Kaleidodash.
Looks awesome right?

I am so torn between that run and a Buddy Walk which the Down Syndrome Family Network is hosting that same day. Ahhh !! I just haven't decided which one I want to do as yet. 

I feel 50/50 so hopefully I can decide quickly before both events are sold out. 

Then guess who turns 33 ??? ME !! Yikes !!!
 October 28th, so mark that date ! hehe

Since my birthday is very close to Halloween I tend to always have a - Halloween themed - birthday shin ding. This year, I am not sure as yet what I want to do. A quiet dinner with friends?... or party it up Halloween Style? 

I guess I have a lot on my plate to think about this month. :)

Are you excited for October? 
What are you most looking forward to?

  1. October is the best! Well, except for September, my Birthday is in September. :)


  2. Happy upcoming birthday! Party it up! And man, that's a really nice thing to do: the down syndrome walk. I used to work with a lot of down syndrome children during high school and college through volunteer programs and feel guilty for not giving back lately. You're inspiring me to get back out there and volunteer :D.

  3. The color run actually sounds really fun, but the other event is also for a good cause, so I understand why you're so torn.


  4. I love October too! I just love the weather and the colors and everything... I don't like to think about Christmas until at least the end of November, though... :)
