Fall, y’all!

I’m back. Do not be alarmed!

It’s been quite a month, you guys. My kids have been sick, my husband has been sick, my cross country kids have been sick and I’ve been sick. A deep throat infection plus intolerable ear pain? Check. The stomach flu? Check. A bee sting and reaction? Check. A sinus infection? Check. “Just” a cold? Check. It’s been rough.

Until now, I’ve been limping through my most favorite season of all, Fall! Let’s skip and clap instead!

Admittedly, it still feels like summer around here but I pulled out the fall decor anyway. First up, my tray filled with fall; with my go-to gold-stemmed pumpkins, a gold candle (a Christmas gift) and a new ceramic squirrel from Target. Isn’t’ she cute?

The hutch adorned with a few clearance pumpkins from last year:

and with my favorite picture of the kids ever:

And lastly, Cadey-Cade and I picked out pumpkins and spruced up the front step while Amelie was at preschool.

I have more Halloween decorations to put up now that it’s officially October. I plan to post about those too but then again, you know me better than that. Right?
