Itâ€™s no secret that October is one of my favorite months out of the year, I mean come onâ€¦ Itâ€™s my Birthday month. Iâ€™m all about Libra Season! #JENtober has been celebrated all month long since my 30th Birthday! Iâ€™m pushing 38 this month! I love to plan fun events all month long to enjoy with my REAL friends and family and I usually plan a party but, this year may be a little different. I just want to get away! Iâ€™m still deciding where I want to go but, I know that it will be the mountains or the coast. I actually enjoy the beach during the fall weather. Itâ€™s picture perfect for me!
So far this month I have really been playing catch up with work and blogging to position myself to take some time off and enjoy it. I just want to be carefree for a little while. Iâ€™ve had some amazing opportunities come my way and Iâ€™ll be blogging about all of them this month. Itâ€™s nice when I can tie a blogging opportunity, event or product into my Birthday festivities. I have so much fun and you get to see firsthand whatâ€™s going on. I tend to share on Twitter and Instagram first and then Iâ€™ll follow up with a blog post if necessary. So, if weâ€™re NOT connected on Twitter or Instagram FOLLOW ME @JenOni_Inc!
I plan to visit Carowinds for the Great Pumpkin Fall Festival and SCarowinds this season again! My sonâ€™s Birthday is exactly seven days after mine so we tend to celebrate at certain events together. We both love Horror and to be spooked so, SCarowinds is always a great choice. We had so much fun last year and the park is open so we can enjoy the rides as well. The NC State Fair is coming to town in between October 13th & 23rd so I will FINALLY be able to enjoy some deep fried Girl Scout Cookies, Funnel Cake and Deep Fried Cookie Dough! I have NEVER been to the NC State Fair so this will be an adventure.
There are a few concerts and plays happening this month that I canâ€™t wait to attend and will be posting about them. So, stay tunedâ€¦ I love a good Broadway Production and concert! Anthony Hamilton How Iâ€™m Feelinâ€™ Tour is coming to DPAC this month along with RENT and the Love Jones Musical! Love Jones is one of my all-time favorite romantic dramas. Itâ€™s right up there with Love & Basketball and The Best Man. I must also mention that Nia Long is like one of my favorite actresses. Iâ€™ve been following her career since she was Kat Speakes on Guiding Light! Her Birthday is also this month but, sheâ€™s a Scorpio. I’m a Libra!
JENtober is always a month to remember and I try to capture as much of it in photos and video as possible. Itâ€™s been trending for the last seven years so I appreciate when my friends indulge in my â€œJENtoberâ€ festivities and dub October = JENtober! I appreciate you all! I get tickled whenever someone refers to October as JENtober on my Facebook wall, Twitter or Instgaram. It just makes me giggle! I am really looking forward to a great month and canâ€™t wait to share all my experiences with you. What do you do for your Birthday?
