** The 5th annual Spooktoberfest is up and running! 





It’s that time of year again - the 5th Annual Spooktoberfest is here with your hosts from Cover Girls!

We cannot believe it’s been 5 years since we started this whole adventure of Spooktoberfest. And to celebrate, we're taking it back old school. If this seems familiar to you, it’s because we are bringing back the original Spooktoberfest requirements, with a few minor tweaks here and there.

2.) Your Flash Fiction piece cannot be any longer than 400 words. Sorry… that’s part of the challenge.

3.) You must use the MANDATORY 5 words listed below or any version of it. Please highlight them in a way so we can locate them faster within your post.

5.) You can tweet us, if you'd like, @Covergirlsdj to let us know when you've posted your entry.

6.) Display the Spooktoberfest badge on your blog.




7.) It’s a blog hop, so… hop around to other participating blogs and leave them some awesome comments.

My celebrations:

**Shopped at outlet mall to get my kiddos their school clothes/shoes. The deals were amazing! My favorite savings... three of our sons are runners so we purchased running shoes that were originally $120 each, We paid $22.75. 

** In the evening we went swimming and played this game called spyfall or something rather. All in all, it was a fun weekend!

**I pulled out a writing project from last year that I'd tucked away and began editing again. It feels so good to be back at it!

We had two vehicles break down on us within hours of each other. The good part? No one was injured and one of them is working again.

Mailed out my oldest son's invites for his grad party!

Did some revising on one of my stories and did NOT want to stop, but I had to. I was so in the zone.

Any celebrations you'd like to share? Join in on the fun HERE.
