The beginning of my favorite month!

It's officially my favorite month of the year! I always look forward to November... not only is it my birthday month AND Thanksgiving time, but it's usually when it starts to get a little chilly in Texas. I've had quite the comical start of November so far. I woke up to 29 degree weather this morning and by the time I left my apartment, it was 32 degrees but felt like 26. YIKES.  So I had to wear my heavy coat and uggs and a scarf this morning. It wasn't bad, but knowing that it's going to get around 20 degrees colder scares me.

I've also been feeling under the weather the past two days.  I had a pretty busy weekend, celebrating Halloween and shopping, so I just chalked it up to being exhausted.  It turns out that the achy feeling I've been having and the chills are not from exhaustion and the cold weather outside.  I came home from work this evening to discover my entire body covered in chicken pox... and yes, the aches and chills are a fever. My roommate, Kim, had them a few weeks ago but I didn't think I'd get them since I've been vaccinated.  I'm a little frustrated that I'm going to have to call in sick and most likely use all of my sick days for this, but what can I do?

Besides that I have lots of fall pictures! It's finally peak in Massachusetts and the colors are amazing!

These next few pictures are of the trails down the street where I go running

And finally... a few pictures from Halloween. I was an 80's aerobic girl

Hopefully I will be pox free in a few days! Until then I will be doing a lot of reading and sleeping!


  1. Poor Lyd. Try not to itch:) LOVE your costume, so cute. Can I borrow it for next year??
