Hi friends! So I'm a little embarrassed to tell you that one of my small goals for the month is to do some "basic bitch Fall activities"; just because, this is my absolute favorite time of year, and I want to make the most of it!

This weekend was just PRIME October and super festive. Saturday morning I ran the Nashville Oktoberfest 5K! All things considered- the training I actually ended up doing, the fact that I haven't run a 5K since 2011, the effort I felt like I put in during the race (um...it was really hard), I'm pleased with the result! It was kinda fun (not really during the race but that rarely happens) and I did win my age group (and a cool plastic cup!) Already thinking about signing up for another one next month, Also I cannot believe I've never been to Nashville Oktoberfest! They actually have a pretty decent set-up (almost as good as Oktoberfest in Munich, heh.) I would have loved to spend the whole day there, but I couldn't, because:

Saturday afternoon I went to Knoxville for the Oh Wonder show! We had just enough time to drive East, get ready, go to dinner at Oliver Royale (fabulous), and then to the show at the Bijou Theater. Oh Wonder was absolutely a delight, and if you haven't listened to them yet, you must! Livewire and Technicolour Beat are a couple of my favorite tracks. The Bijou Theater is a really neat little venue, and I loved getting to explore Knoxville a bit that evening and Sunday morning.

We gave a really valiant effort at trying to stop at a pumpkin patch on the way home...but it was super rainy and pumpkin patches make their own hours!

Fall is just the pumpkin spice of life, isn't it? I hope you are having a splendid October so far!
