Welcome, October

October means that you can officially decorate for fall! Yahooo!! Look what Brad surprised me with, to help ring in the new season:

I love mums, so this was such a great surprise! He purchased these while I was at work, yesterday, and had them sitting on our front porch to welcome me home. They literally welcomed me with that nice little sign! (Haha, get it?)

The fall decorations are out in full-force around our pad. Got the wreath on the door, the cornucopia on the mantle, our glowing pumpkins on the bench (btw, I loooooove my new shelf and bench! Totally perfect for that spot!), the "Give Thanks" plaque above the doorway (which I hung all by myself, thankyouverymuch), and a little homemade centerpiece for our coffee table, comprising of a pumpkin-shaped cage filled with pumpkin spice potpourri, some raffia, and baby pumpkins and gourds. I love every bit of it.

Our house officially looks and smells like fall, AND the weather is finally awesome (in the 70's). Wooty Woot! I couldn't be happier.

Are you loving this weather as much as I am? Have you whipped out your seasonal decor, yet?

Love it!!! I LOVE FALL!! It's my favorite season of the year. I even had a 9 month engagement b/c I wanted it in the fall! :-)

I love the decorations! We dug through our garage to get my stuff out. I have door decoration on the front door and then I like to decorate my dining room and living room with pumpkins and scarecrows. Super fun! Tomorrow we are going to a corn maze!!
