     Gosh!  I have slowly converted the house from summer to the warm, cozy colors of fall and what is around the corner?  HALLOWEEN!
    So much needs to be done. First of all, I need to pick out a theme, then I need to go shopping, which by the way, no complaints there! I will need to make my ideas come to life, make my costume, buy the candy and make the wrappers for it, etc......   I'm exhausted already!  Lol
     I love Halloween. It is my time of the year that I can spoil every child that comes to the house and give them an awesome sugar rush and send them home :)

    I thought I  would give you ladies a sneak peek of what to expect as we approach this holiday.
I hope you enjoy and remember................. I'M WATCHING YOU..... 

Wait wait wait wait..... I hear something.......
It is the UPS truck!  I wonder what pretties he is bringing me today.

I wonder what I will be doing with these. Ummmmm.......
You will have to come back and check on me!

Enjoy your day!

Until next time.....

Welcoming Fall

Welcoming Fall!

Hello Ladies!

    I hope everyone is enjoying the cooler weather and decorating!  I have enjoyed trying to catch up on all of your loveliness!  My, you've been busy!! I didn't leave any comments and I'm sorry. I haven't been blogging in several months and for now, I am just trying to catch up....but I will!!

    I needed to take a break from blogging to prioritize my life, as sometimes we need to take a step back and re evaluate life.  I was out of work and was having trouble finding something. I am slowly getting back into the work field and am doing ok.

     I would like to share with you some of my fall decorating. I am a little behind because I feel now I should be decorating for Halloween!  Gosh.......time has gone by fast.

I hope you enjoy my fall living room and please feel free to let me know of any changes that I may have missed in designing my blog!

I will be linking up with  The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays. Make sure you stop by and say hello and check out all of the loveliness and yummies they will present to you.  Enjoy your day!!
