Mr. October

by Brittany on October 3, 2011

** Sorry if you tried to visit Itty Bits while the server was down this afternoon! I have no idea what was up, but thankfully my tech guru Jan was able to help a sista out. If any of you need any server or website help, hit up Jan at She’s helped me out more times than I can even imagine!**

Now back to our regularly scheduled program, and boy oh boy have I got a treat for you…

Meet Mr. October ;)


If you are relatively new to Itty Bits, you might not have been around when I introduced Mr. September or my Man of the Month Calendar.

For those of you who were around—I’m sorry but Mr. October has got August and September beat by a landslide.


(I love you, Will :D )

My test today went swimmingly! Thanks to Popcorn’s 4:45 AM wakeup call, I was able to knock out several hours of old fashioned quality time with constitutional law at my productivity station.


Of course, the corn pops wasn’t too far from my side,


and neither was my second Tigger cup of joe of the morning :D


Yes, I realize that both my computer screen and my flash cards are blank in these photos—but rest assured that they were taken at the very beginning of my study venture.

Not only did I have a cute puppy, extra coffee, and a Tigger mug to make for a happy morning, but Florida was hit with it’s first hint of cold weather! When I was leaving for class, the temperature was down to a whopping 65 degrees! Gotta love Florida winters 8)

I even busted out my first long-sleeved shirt of the season!

IMG_4935But didn’t exactly bust out the biceps…


Upon returning from my first class, I whipped up this salad beast in record time:


Romaine, kidney beans, avocado, baby bell peppers, cottage cheese, sun dried tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper.


Talk about a mish mosh of fixings 8)

Bowling class here I come!

A bit to think about: Mr. September or Mr. October?

A bit to do: I came across this really interesting article about how to stay sane while blogging. Any thoughts?

First off, have I mentioned how cute those glasses are? They look great!
Secondly…the joys of having a puppy. Salsa decided to throw up all over her bed (not on the tile floor right next to her bed…that would be too easy!) just as I was rushing out the door. And now she’s at home, where I’m sure my husband is holding her on his lap as he works. Poor baby (<–is the sarcasm translating?). haha

Aww! Poor salsa!

I know what you mean though– Popcorn REFUSES to pee ON the puppy pad, but will gladly squirt on the rug right next to it -_-

Mr. October, definitely!! Does Will get jealous of your calendar? haha..
I think the part about blogging about your passions are totally true. Plus many people don’t realize the time and effort put into a blog. If you really enjoy it though, it isn’t all that stressful because it is something you like doing!


Itty Bits of Balance October 3, 2011 at 6:37 pm

You said it sister ;)

And Will accepts my calendar for what it is haha. Luckily he understands my ridiculous sense of humor

You look so studious with the glasses on! And man, 445am?! That’s dedication right there. I’ve never woken up extra early to study before, I’d much rather push until late and be able to sleep in a little.

The weather was so nice this morning! I hope it sticks around!

Oh you and your Tigger cup! I love it!
And I also love that it is a “productivity station” rather than just a plain old boring desk!!
