Welcome to October!

October is here which means lots of things are happening! First, it’s my 1 year blogiversary! The blog itself has been around for a while, I started the idea around January 2012, but it wasn’t until October of last year that I started dedicating time and effort into Me, You and Zu. Thanks to my fellow bloggers for keeping me creative for the last year. Here’s to another year!

Second, on the topic of celebrating, my husband and I celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary yesterday and today is 11 years that we’ve been together. We bought each other “gifts” from 7Eleven instead of real presents.

Third, it’s National Adopt-A-Dog Month and Breast Cancer Awareness Month….and Halloween month!

And lastly you’ve probably all noticed that our site theme has changed in honor of the Halloween spirit. It’s a favorite time of year around here which leads me to my next point. We’re starting ZuZu’s Halloween Challenge today!  I’m a huge fan of blog challenges. I’m going to participate in the Pet October Photo Challenge that @heidiwright_ is hosting on Instagram. We’re @meyouandzu! But just photos isn’t what I’ve been looking for and unable to find any pet themed challenges I decided to make my own! With Wayne’s help, I came up with ZuZu’s Halloween Challenge.

The challenge is going to include lots of pictures; I’ve included Wordless Wednesday and Black & White Sunday as days in the challenge instead of making up a question for that day. It’s a pet challenge so I will be answering on behalf of ZuZu & the Kitty Fantastica team. Anyone who would like to join is more than welcome. I worded the questions so everyone could do it; the questions can also be re-worded if you are a pet with a human scribe. All I ask is that you copy the challenge image and post it with your posts.

So without further ado here it is!
