A Fall Frenzy

I am back. Woo hoo.

As soon as we were off the plane I started soaking in the crisp October air and thinking about crunchy leaves and pumpkin spice lattes. Once we were home and I jumped back into the blog world, I realized I was seriously behind in decorating for fall.

Can I just say, though, that it is so nice to come home to a clean house. It is totally worth the stress beforehand. Ugh, I loooove a clean house. Yep, it's already messy again.

Now that I am fully relaxed (Could I be any more relaxed? Seriously.), I am ready to bust out the fall decor and get ready for a three day 3rd birthday event.
Don't even get me started...my baby girl is turning three. Lots more to come on that.

This morning I hopped over to Melissa's and found my first fall craft of the season.

Glue gun, check. Styrofoam pumpkin, check. Ribbon, check. Dollar Tree plate, check.

I cannot stop eating those stinking candy corns.


I planted these big fall mums today.

I think my birdie laid some tiny pumpkins



scary spiders the kids made last year

The best fall accessory-
a super cute little boy in Halloween jammies!




Did you miss me?

PS I am dying to see NieNie on Oprah!

Hi Jill!

Your fall decor looks beautiful! All of it! And Hawaii? YOU LUCKY GIRL! I'd give anything for some sunshine and heat (I hate cold weather).

Thanks for stopping by to see me today and for your sweet comment. :) It's so nice to "meet" you!
