October for the Barkers

So it turns out we are the worst bloggers ever... not really that much of a shock haha. However, I do maintain that the fact that we haven't blogged in 8 months is Matt's fault. He said he would do the next one and never did haha.
Anyway since my last blog Matt graduated with a bachelor's degree in English...

we have moved to Illinois...

I have started working as a receptionist at an Orthodontist office...

and Matt has been hard at work looking for a job. We are loving it here in Illinois and have done a couple fun things this month I thought I would share.

The first thing we did was go camping. We went to Shawnee National Forest. Which is about 3 hours south of where we live. We just went for one night but it was a lot of fun and very relaxing!

The second thing I wanted to share was our ward's Trunk or Treat. We both love Halloween and have been excited about dressing up for it this year, because we couldn't come up with anything fun last year. So we decided to dress up as Charlie Brown and the Little Red-Haired Girl. For those of you who are not familiar with Peanuts, the Little Red-Haired Girl is the girl Charlie Brown always had a crush on. He is always talking about "that little red-haired girl" haha. However, she only actually shows up in the cartoon a couple times. The most famous is the homecoming episode where she gives Charlie Brown his first kiss (on the cheek). Now, the Trunk or Treat took place at a farm and I did not want to wear a Homecoming dress on a hayride haha. So instead I wore a pink shirt and white sweater and put little freckles on my face, to dress up like her. We had so much fun seeing everyone dressed up!

  1. Do you get to wear scrubs to work every day? I think that would be so comfy. Your camping trip looks like it was so fun. I keep thinking we need to take our kiddos out camping sometime. And I love your Halloween costumes. Fun idea!
