Announcing... A Halloween Link Up + a Birthday Giveaway!

Monday, September 21, 2015

Today I wanted to introduce to you a fun Halloween link up - Countdown to Halloween: 31 Days of Fall Fun! I'm SO excited to be co-hosting this Halloween Link Up this year with Courtney from Sweet Turtle Soup. She and some other of my favorite bloggers hosted it last year and I'm more than excited to be co-hosting with her as well as some other fabulous ladies this year : Amanda from Tickled PinkNina from The Joni Journey, and Kelly from Happily Ever Mock.

Starting with my birthday in September and ending with Christmas in December, the holiday season (yes, I did just refer to my birthday as a holiday) is upon us and I am so excited to celebrate! I always love Halloween and Fall but this year I am even more excited about it and can't wait to share all the fun we'll be having!

The link up days will be every Monday in October as well as the first Monday in November - Oct. 5th, Oct. 12th, Oct. 19th, Oct. 26th, and Nov. 2nd. The link ups will open on Monday and close on the Thursday of the same week so feel free to link up anytime between Monday and Thursday. No blog? No problem! Share in the fun by posting to Instagram using #cdtohalloween15! (with the exclamation mark!).

You can tell us all about the Halloween activities that you've been doing throughout the month or just tell us about what Fall activities you've been up to. And it doesn't have to be a literal countdown (unless you want it to be!) - you can share what you've been up to all month or you can just share a couple different activities. Big or small, we'd love for you to share it all!

If we think about Fall and cooler weather, it will come, right? Haha! Just a fair warning, be prepared for pumpkin patch pictures in shorts and t-shirts! We're still dying for cooler temperatures here in California!

We'd be so happy if you'd link up with us and share your Fall fun every Monday in October. So start brainstorming and come back on Oct. 5th and let us know what you've been up to! If you have any questions or comments, please shoot me an email or leave a comment below. Happy Halloween-ing!


Oh and today, the fun doesn't stop there! I've teamed up with some of my favorite bloggers for a September birthday giveaway! Desiree from Macke Monologues and Tawnya from All of Life's Little Adventures shared a birthday on Sept. 16th, mine was last Saturday, Sept. 19th, and Courtney from A+ Life has a birthday coming up on Sept. 26th!

  5. Happy Halloween-ing haha love it! I looked up free printable October calendars and Chris is going to print a couple copies off for me - because I make mistakes and like to start all over. I'm excited to jot down festive ideas for each day. That's how I usually keep on top of things!

    What a fun giveaway too! A birthday giveaway! Of monumental proportions! All the birthdays!!! Aren't you suppose to get things for your bday....haha. Speaking of you'll be getting something totally belated in the mail. End of Sept or so. My organization only goes so far apparently.

  6. Birthdays = holidays, I totally agree with that. Everyone should get their birthday off work and everything! Pumpkin patches in shorts was us last year. I have no idea what to expect this year because the weather keeps jumping between the 70s and 90s. Shorts or sweaters, it makes no difference, a little hot weather can't stop our fall fun ;)
