{Peroni putting his wet nose on the Wet Noses pumpkin dog treats}

It’s October! My absolute favorite month of the entire year. And as retailers know, it’s also the time of year where I spend the most on the things that are also the most disposable (i.e. candles, costumes that dogs grow out of, and food–the human and the dog kind).

Here are a few things that Ruffino, Peroni and I cannot live without:

  • Pumpkin Souffle Candle from Anthropologie (little candle but packs a strong punch)
  • Pumpkin Nutmeg Candle by Nature’s Wick (the kind of candle you can burn for weeks)
  • Pumpkin Dog Treats by Wet Noses (Ruffino is obsessed with raw pumpkin but these wheat free treats are a great alternative)
  • Halloween-themed dog toys from Kyjen (you can always count on Kyjen for holiday-themed toys, but just don’t expect the toys to last you to the actual holiday)
  • Weekends to Die for on the Travel Channel (as much scary as I can take)
  • The phenomenal pumpkin, witch hat and ghost shaped sugar cookies from Barb’s Bakery in Phoneix (a true gem of a bakery)

Turning Twenty Six

{Ruffino thinks all things wrapped or bagged are for him}

This week I turned the big 26. Here’s to a great year, and hoping that 27 comes a little bit slower than 26 came.
