You all know why I love October, right?

Multiple birthday celebrations lend a plus to this already awesome month, especially when they are your multiple birthday celebrations. Who doesn't like to be celebrated? No one.

I won't bore you too much with the details of my many celebrations ... only show you a few pictures. You'll get the idea.

La Petite Belle & I share a birthday week, so it ends up being quite the wild rompus around here.

Add in a slight chill & breeze in the air, caramel popcorn, Starbucks' pumpkin spice latte, sweaters, apples, cinnamon-spiced candles, wearing boots again, and the fact that Thanksgiving is just around the corner with multiple birthday celebrations and you've got Rocktober ... the best month ever!

The weekend in pictures:

DAY 1 -
Cupcakes waiting in my office for breakfast! YAY!

Cuban food for lunch with friends.
Convertible ride to and from lunch (Beau, the chauffeur).
In addition to my precious CoCo Mademoiselle, these wonderful gifts.
Seeing "You Again" with the family (so funny), followed by my favorite yogurt.

DAY 2 -
Pedicures with my peeps.

Delicious - Tilapia Lafayette.

DAY 3 -
La Petite Belle's Horse-Riding Party - Getting ready.

Starting to trot.
Painting horses.
Getting ready for the games.
La Petite Belle's birthday dinner request - spaghetti.

And, it's not over. La Petite Belle's actual birthday is Wednesday, which means another celebration at school. Whew. I'm exhausted from all this partying.
