I'm in the Mood for...


It's about 99 degrees out today, which is just wrong!! This past weekend I pulled out a few decorations for Fall and Halloween!! I couldn't wait any longer! I thought I'd share ~a sneek peek!! And now that some decorations are out, I'm just waiting on a nice, cool, crisp 78 degree day!! ;) I do LOVE fall, though!! I love: less humidity, pumpkins, chili, football, sweaters, mums, scarecrows, Halloween costumes, candy corn, hay rides, fall festivals, and beautiful colored leaves!! I still need to decorate the porch, I'm waiting on 1. another paycheck and 2. cooler weather! I want to put pumpkins on the steps and mums on the table by the rocking chairs- I think they would shrivel and die in 2 seconds if I put them out there already!! I need a wreath on the door and a new spooky welcome mat,too!!

This is my new candy jar!! I got it about a month ago at Walgreens for $5.00!! I've been wanting one for about 4 years, but I either miss them every time they come out- they come out early and I always think "Oh, I'll wait for a few more weeks and come back and get it"! Then they are all gone and nowhere to be found!! Or they just haven't been carrying them for the last few years!!

This is another new item!! I usually keep white lights on this tree in our dining room~ but I thought it would be cute and fun to have something different for Halloween!! I got these lights at Target for $5.99~ they are little jack-o-lanterns!! They are great!! I love them! I have been trying to add a couple of decorations each year! I have been lacking in the Fall/ Halloween decoration department!! I'm glad to have a few more pieces to add! I want it to be fun and exciting for the kiddos!! :) Hope you are enjoying getting ready for fall too!!
