Hello, dear readers! Today is a fun day in Mean Maureenland – it’s my birthday AND, as of today, I officially have 100 days left until Baby Mean arrives. (Of course, babies rarely arrive on their exact due dates, but is important for me to mark these milestones because pregnancy lasts approximately INFINITY DAYS and I need to feel like I’m making progress.) So, huzzah! Huzzah to me for staying alive another year, and huzzah to baby Mean for growing like a champ and getting closer and closer to joining us in the Land Outside My Womb (which is also the title of an absolutely horrible children’s book I just came up with.)
ANYWAY, weekend! In honor of my birthday and Halloween, I’m gonna do a fall themed round up today. Perhaps you are celebrating Halloween a bit early with some parties? Perhaps you are going out for a hike wherever you are, enjoying the brisk fall weather and crisp, fallen leaves? Or, you know, if you live in LA like me, you are going to be expending most of your energy denying the fact that is going to be 90 god damned degrees in my neighborhood tomorrow. BUT WHATEVER, I’M STILL GOING TO PRETEND IT’S FUN FALL TIME.
For example, I’m going to order some of these adorable literary themed tights to wear and ward off the chill in the air!
And maybe I’ll make a version of these cute spider chocolate chip cookies!
Or drink these delicious looking fall themed mocktails!
Maybe I’ll channel my inner Martha Stewart (okay, fine, more like my inner Pinterest fail) and carve or decorate a pumpkin!
And you know what? Fuck you, unseasonably warm weather, I’M MAKING SOME GOD DAMNED PUMPKIN SOUP.
Anyway, I hope you have a wonderful fall weekend, whatever the weather, and that I can tone down my hostility toward mother nature enough to enjoy my own weekend! See you Monday!
