What month is it?!?

ENIGMATICSURPRISES

Hey everybody!! It’s finally October, my favorite month of the year! I’m obsessed with Halloween now that I’m older. Which means way more entries on the blog. The hubs and I go to Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando every year in October. If you aren’t familiar with it think about a haunted house you’ve been to before only with the professionals calling the shots. It’s definitely our family tradition now. If you haven’t been you need to go! So I’ll will do updates with pictures and videos about things we are taking and etc. I hope everyone has an amazing first day of October!! Stay Scary! Lol
