Happy (almost) Halloween, friends! Truth be told, I'm in denial that it's tomorrow already. We'll probably keep our decorations out a little longer than normal because the Halloween FOMO is real. Although, it's been a fun season so far. I don't know how, but my husband and best friends somehow convinced me to watch three scary movies this month, which is for sure a personal record. I hate scary movies! Is that surprising considering how much I love Halloween? It's because I love kids Halloween which usually doesn't get any scarier than Hocus Pocus.

We watched Get Out, Invaders from Mars, and The Shining. The Shining! Like one of the scariest movies ever. I watched a lot of it between my fingers and under a blanket with my husband holding me and telling me what was happening. Like a normal person, you know?

Halloween is so soon! Are you ready?? M and I spent an entire week in Portland this month, so to be honest, Halloween stuff was put on hold. But now that we're back, we're trying to get in as much spooky stuff as we can. Mostly, we've been watching Halloween specials and old commercials and eating plenty of sugar. Traditions, right?

Isn't October just the best? We're only a few days in, but I feel like it's basically Halloween already. I spend all year waiting for this month, and when it gets here I freak out because I feel like it lasts for like a day. We're doing our best to get in as much Halloween fun as we can!

In our house, that means many things, including tapping into my love of the 80s.

I'm so excited about this post, and truthfully, it's a long time coming! I've never really delved into it on here, but my husband and I love to entertain. For example, my mom's 50th birthday was last month, so to celebrate we made a 5-course Italian feast for the entire family. We fit 14 people in our little condo, and everyone had a great time drinking wine, snacking on vegan cheeses, and stuffing their faces with simple and authentic Italian fare. It was amazing. 

We know that not every dinner party can be like that, so we also embrace more loosy-goosy hosting opportunities, especially as we get into fall (and the holidays) when entertaining can become more frequent and last minute. With out-of-town visitors, family popping in, and friends who just want to hang, you never really know when you're going to find people in your house. I love this about fall and winter. Staying in and eating with loved ones is a perfect time to enjoy company and relax and reflect. Because of this, my husband and I have developed some tricks over the years to make sure we're always ready to host cheaply and on a whim.
