31 Days of Halloween: Welcome to the Countdown Plus My Halloween Bucket List

Hello fiends! It is again our most favorite time of year – October! A time for cooler autumnal breezes, pumpkin-spiced aromas, spooky stories and things that go bump in the night! And, of course, the annual Countdown to Halloween! I will be again doing my 31 Days of Halloween and posting at least once a day about awesome Halloween stuff!

You can check out my last two years of 31 Days of Halloween HERE!

This year I will be posting a lot about zombies since our Halloween party at the end of the month is zombie themed. You can read all about the party theme HERE.

Besides zombifying things around here, I’ll also be writing about vegan Halloween recipes, posting kooky Halloween videos, rocking out to some Halloween music, watching appropriately spooky movies, featuring Halloween artists and sharing my own Halloween adventures!

It is going to be an exciting month and I can’t wait to share it all with you. You can also check out other Halloween goodies I'll be posting on my Tumblr, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter!

  1. Ah seizure seizure...just kidding.

  2. That's an impressive list! Good luck!

  3. Hey Spooky Girl! Happy October to you! And so the countdown begins again. Can't believe how fast this past year flew by. In fact, this year I am running behind on everything and am rather bummed about it too. I LOVE your Halloween Bucket list...but as I was reading through it, I started feeling anxious at how many things I'm not going to have time to do...ha! That list is so ambitious, that I'd love for you to share a check list at the end of the month and see how much you were able to accomplish! So many fun things that I love...think I'll copy your list down to keep and see how many I can do too. Also love that photo at the end, of the pumpkin great is that?! Looking forward to your posts...enjoy the spookiest month of the year! :o)

  4. I love your bucket list! I have GOT to make one for myself. Not sure why I never thought of that before. Happy Countdown to Halloween!
