Halloween...Know What I Mean?


Happy 10th month of the year, my pretties!
It's finally here. {Good golly, she's finally HERE!}
31 whole days of orange and black beauty.

I die.

I've made a ghoul...err, I mean a GOAL!...to post at least something Halloweeny every single day of this marvelous month. This holiday speaks to my soul. It hugs my heart. Enchants my thoughts. I swoon at the very mention of it. Weak in the knees? Yep, that's how I be! I'm not yet sure exactly what the heck kind of content you're going to find on here for the next few wicked weeks, but I hope you'll join me for a frightfully fun time.

The following is just an intro...a Halloween Haiku, if you will...to get us all in the SPIRIT of things. Tell me - what are your favorite things about this stupendous season? Here are some of mine...

These are all nice shout outs, but one thing reigns supreme out of allllllll these amazing October Oddities. Yes, Vanessa Williams, you know I saved the best for last. Yes, indeed you do! Who was missing?...


Me and my main squeeze.

Yeah, I said it. {The Sensational Strawberry Sweetheart of my very existence.} Coco and Big M. raised SheShe and I on these. They were cool parents. Gotta say it. Sure, they monitored our sugar intake...{ahem...in front of people!}...but behind the scenes, I have to give credit where credit's due. My 'rents made a mad dash every October 1st to stock us up on Frankenberries. They never even thought twice about it. {That's hella cool.} Even when I was in college, they'd send me autumn care packages, and the face of this Gorgeous Goon would greet me as soon as FedEx sped away. I loved that even though I was exactly 496 miles away from them, it was heartwarming to know that they were thinking of me. They remembered! {#magical}

Love ya lots!

For reals - the sight of these precious pink princes is sometimes just too much for me to handle, lol. I'm serious! They take me back to such a joyful, purely pleasant time - childhood! Carefree, sunshiney, comforting days. I know that whenever October rolls around, this Magenta Monster will greet me on the end cap of an aisle. He'll be joined by his Buddy in Blue and a Chocolatey Chew. I'll never tire of that display.

In life, it's always nice to have something to hang onto - to call your own - to make you smile - to count on - to make you get all da feels. This cereal is one-a-doze things for dis 'ol daughter! Posting an ode to a breakfast food is so super random, I know. But sometimes random can be darn delicious!

Grab yourself a bowl, honey, and go heavy on the marshmallows. I said so.
