Monday and Tuesday, I was focused on finishing up last minute details for Little Girl's birthday. Wednesday was Little Girl's actual birthday. She had school as always so festivities didn't begin until after she got home. She turned 6 years old this year. Everyone says it...the days drag but the years fly by. She had a good birthday, and I fixed ravioli lasagna (her favorite) for dinner. Thursday I spent as much free time as possible getting ready for the birthday pary this weekend. Friday, I did what I could, but I had a hair appointment. That was overdue, and it feels so good. Saturday was the joint birthday party for Little Girl and Little Boy (his birthday is this coming Saturday). We only had family and a couple of family friends over, but they had a blast. This afternoon we're getting family pictures done. October is always jammed packed for our family.

Tuesday: Top Ten Tuesday?
Wednesday: Can't Wait for Wednesday
My annual "All Things Halloween" event is starting. This is my month-long event where I feature reviews from Halloween-y genres (fantasy, paranormal, supernatural, sci-fi, horror, mystery, thriller, and suspense). Over the last few years I've had mostly fantasy books as I just haven't been in the mood for much horror, but still...these are books that can get you in the mood for Halloween.

Goodreads description--Victorian high society’s most daring equestrienne finds love and an unexpected ally in her fight for independence in the strong arms of London’s most sought after and devastatingly handsome half-Indian tailor.
Evelyn Maltravers understands exactly how little she’s worth on the marriage mart. As an incurable bluestocking from a family tumbling swiftly toward ruin, she knows she’ll never make a match in a ballroom. Her only hope is to distinguish herself by making the biggest splash in the one sphere she excels: on horseback. In haute couture. But to truly capture London’s attention she’ll need a habit-maker who’s not afraid to take risks with his designs—and with his heart.
Half-Indian tailor Ahmad Malik has always had a talent for making women beautiful, inching his way toward recognition by designing riding habits for Rotten Row’s infamous Pretty Horsebreakers—but no one compares to Evelyn. Her unbridled spirit enchants him, awakening a depth of feeling he never thought possible.
But pushing boundaries comes at a cost and not everyone is pleased to welcome Evelyn and Ahmad into fashionable society. With obstacles spanning between them, the indomitable pair must decide which hurdles they can jump and what matters most: making their mark or following their hearts?
