October Update/Wrap Up...Yes I Know It Is November
Ok folks, I know it's November, but I can't let October go without a final farewell. This was seriously one of the best birthday months I have ever had and it was really wholly due to my amazing friends and family. They all bent over backwards to make what was already my favorite month of the year absolutely unforgettable in such a great way. Hubbin especially went so far above and beyond that I want to marry him all over again (see my previous posts about my trip of unreal perfection). To end this month of awesome I got to spend Halloween at my fire station, which is my happy place so already good. My driver and I both had the same idea and brought costume props (we can't go full on costume on calls...something about doing CPR dressed like death makes some people a little uncomfortable...) and took tons of pictures of the whole crew all dressed up. Several scary movies and jumpy pranks later we decided to actually do some work and run some calls. The best part however was our friend came in with presents!!! Yep not only did I get birthday presents, but I got a Halloween gift too...seriously I am so spoiled. Anyways my girl decided to start a new tradition where we all read the same scary book each October and every year a different person picks the book. She started it by gifting us with The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey...which besides being on my TBR list, also has a yellow cover so pretty much awesome. I am so excited to read this book with my firehouse book club people and absolutely love the fact that going to my happy place results in new books and people to discuss them with! I am so deliouresly happy about almost everything that happened this month (there were crappy things...cause you know real life...but I'm pretending they didn't happen in my happy retrospect lol) and cannot believe how blessed I am in my friends and family. I love you all, and cannot wait to see what happens next...now off to go read my new book under my reading tree so I have something to ramble about. Happy Reading Everybody!
