what’s up with october?

July 11, 2010

i am watching the ‘cupcake wars’ episode where owners of a local coffee shop here in arizona win the whole thing. i will be going to said coffee shop (it is called ‘the coffee shop’) any day now to eat me some yummy yummy cupcakes 🙂

watching these people make 1000 cupcakes is crazy. i am honored to be making a few cupcakes/cakes myself this month. and it made me think of how many birthdays there are this month. july is a crazy birthday month! on the 5th (five days ago) we welcomed the newest member of the giant-watson-clan. i have two very pregnant friends from my small group who are ready to erupt. another friend who is a missionary overseas is actually past her due date and pissed! but in a holy kind of way. 🙂 today is my friend grace’s bday. my nephew, corban, is turning one on monday. then two of my girlfriends have babies turning 1 this month as well. one of my dearest friends from high school and beyond has a bday this week. my sister turns 32 next week. i looked for a birthday present for her today. didn’t find anything, which means she will probably get her present closer to christmas. my sister-in-law, bre, is also having a birthday this month. chris’ brother justin had a bday earlier this month. chris has 2 cousins and an uncle that had bdays this month (thanks for the giant birthday list grandpa!) and i’m sure more people in my family had bdays in korea this month, but i honestly don’t know any of those dates.

so, the question that lays open here is: what is so sexy about october???? apple cider? thanksgiving (for canadians!)? making halloween costumes? does that bring a married couple so close together that they create new life together? i don’t know. all i know is that i will keep my distance from chris this october, seductive autumn odors be darned.
