Setember 2016: Month-in-Review

Well, there goes September! It was quite a crazy month for me, but it was also a super exciting month, because FALL OFFICIALLY STARTED!! *screams and dances with a pumpkin* In fact, I was so excited about it that I wrote an entire post about celebrating it! (In which, I blow up with excitement about the season, the pumpkins, and basically everything about fall.) 

Ok, so here's what happened in September! 

 - I had play auditions (and got a part)! Our homeschool group does a play every year, and for our spring play, we are doing "Get Smart." Play season is always SO exciting! 

- FALL OFFICIALLY STARTED!! (C'mon, you saw that one coming.... :p) 

- I went to the 2016 True Woman Conference. Last weekend, I had the opportunity to go with my mom, sisters, and some friends of ours to worship and pray with 7,000 other women. It was incredible! I learned so much, and the whole weekend was wonderful!

- I guest posted on Hannah's blog. It was such an amazing opportunity and privilege to be Hannah's first guest poster! Thanks, girl! :) 

- I shared a recipe over at A Friend Loves at All Times. We flailed a bit about sprinkles and birthday cake puppy chow, because that's what we made, and it was delicious! 

- My novel broke. And I couldn't fix it. *sobs* I hadn't gotten very far into it when I got stuck with the plot. I tried a few different things, but nothing was really coming together, so I ditched it. However, I did get my idea for my NaNo novel, and October is going to be all about planning and preparing for it! Yay!!

I found some really good music this month! I recently got Spotify, and I use it every single day. I love how I can create playlists and have access to every song ever! It's pretty exciting. So, thanks to Spotify, I was able to find some great songs! (Disclaimer: This post is not sponsored by Spotify, I just really really like it. :p)

//Death Has Died by Andy Mineo
(I've never been a big fan of rap/hip-hop, but the lyrics to this one are SO GOOD.)

//The Answer by Josh Turner

//Don't Forget His Love by Ellie Holcomb 

//The Lord is My Salvation by the Gettys

September was fabulous!! I am super excited about October, and fall, and all the lovely things that go along with it!

What was your favorite part of September?
Have you celebrated fall yet? (Like, dancing, shouting, baking fall treats, etc.) ;)

Have a lovely day!! :)

  1. EEP you're in a play??? That's so exciting!!!

    1. YES!! It is "Get Smart", and it is a comedy based off of an old TV show. It is SO FUNNY! :D EEP I'M EXCITED!! :D ♥

  2. Ah, your September sounds so fun, Megan!!! And you're in a play? Sounds really fun! And thank you so much for guest posting for me! It was one of my highlights this month. :)

    And you went to the True Woman conference?? That is SO cool! Did you get to meet or see Kristen and Bethany from Girl Defined? I love their blog and saw that they were there! :)

    Your blog is literally becoming one of my favorites. *sigh* :)

    1. It was a lot of fun!! YES I'M IN A PLAY!! *screaming* I AM SO EXCITED I LOVE ACTING!!

      I loved guest posting for you!! It was tons of fun!! :) ♥

      I did get to meet them!! OK OK STORYTIME. SO they were in the teen class, which is where I was, but they weren't separate from us or anything like we were making bracelets together and hanging out it was SUPER COOL. I wanted to buy their book but they sold out at the conference, so I couldn't. *wails*

      EEP THANK YOU SO MUCH HANNAH!! You are da best!! ♥♥♥

  3. GETTING SPOTIFY = THE BEST DECISION EVER. <3 I listen to Spotify every day too and it's a beautiful creation wow yes. :'') Oooh and I'll have to listen to that Mineo song! I haven't heard much of his music but he's a cool dude. OMG CAN YOU DELIVER SOME OF THAT BIRTHDAY CAKE PUPPY CHOW TO MY FACE PLS?? that would be awesome. ;) EEEEP SO EXCITED/STRESSED FOR NANO!! But I'm sure you'll totally rock that novel, girl. Also the play sounds so exciting!! *many hugs many waffles*




      I am really nervous about NaNo, but I'm SUPER DUPER excited too!!

      Thanks, Abbiee!! *hugs* ♥

  4. SPOTIFY IS GREAT. I'm listening to it right now, actually. A couple of my recent favorite songs have been "Heaven's Gate" by Dawn Landes & Piers Faccini and "Dream On" by Aerosmith.
    Congratulations on getting a part!

    1. YES ME TOO. :) I'll have to look up those songs!!


  5. SPOTIFY IS THE BEST. I love it so much! That's so awesome that you're in a play. I'd always thought it would be cool, but there's really nowhere around where I live that does that type of things. YOU GOT THAT NOVEL. I know how it is to ditch a book, but sometimes you just have to :) I hope NaNo goes really well for you!

    1. YAS I LOVE IT! Thanks so so much, Autumn!! I am super excited about NaNo!! Eeep I am nervous though! :p

  6. Spotify is great! Not so great if you don't have a premium account but...anyway... lol :P
    So exciting you're in a play!
    Blessings :)

    1. Yeah they do an awesome job of making me want premium!! :P haha Thanks, Bonnie!! :) ♥

  7. Sounds so fun! Thank you for guest posting on AFLAAT! I enjoyed your recipe. :)

    Have a great October!!!!

    With love and all joy,
    Allie D.

    1. No problem!! It was my pleasure!! :) ♥♥

  8. Oh no!!! I am so very sorry about your novel falling apart...that would be horrible. =( I know how much work goes into writing and to see it dissolve? But you gained experience through it, and if you honor God through your writing, then it is not ever wasted. ♥

    Ahhh...plays are always fun! We usually are in a musical during the spring as well. =) This year it's The Little Mermaid...but we aren't sure if we will be free to do it or not. =( It's a great way to have fun, meet others, and share God's love!

    1. I have definitely learned from it! Thank you, Hosanna!! :)

      I am SO EXCITED about the play!! I hope you can do yours!! I would be really devastated if I missed it. :(

      I love the bonding with the cast!! It always makes things fun, and like a big family!! :) ♥
