I’m sitting at my desk trying to write. Trying to read. Feeling the general monotony of routine. Feeling my eyes grow heavier with every single word. I think about going outside for a walk, then I glance over my shoulder and alas, even though it’s only 6:30, it’s already dark. I feel tired. Empty. Drained.

Sunday’s have become fashion days. We all take time to dress for church. And then weather dependent. Photos. I love these moments for the many reasons. Yes, of course the fashion part. But mostly? The bonding piece. Small moments I get to spend with my girls. It’s only a snippet of time. But you get a glimpse into our lives. Our interactions. We don’t dress FOR photos. We dress for ourselves. You get to see real life fashion on real life people. Not models. Not staged. Mostly us just goofing around in our town. Hopefully I can give you some real life insight on what works, what doesn’t and how to pull it all together. My girls? They’re naturals. Stick around, ok? Fashion days shall continue!

As soon as September 1 rolls around I’m ready for fall. The colors. The sounds. The smells. It really is my favorite season. And as much as I love Christmas decorations, I might even like Fall Decorating even more.
Who cares that the weather has been fickle. Warm then cold. Then warm again. I can embrace all of autumn in my boots OR my flip flops.
But there is something so incredibly comforting about driving up to my home, seeing my front porch and then walking in to the feeling of fall. Because fall totally has a feeling. Does it not.

Here is my tiny decorating home tour to give you some inspiration. I know there are people embracing Christmas trees and all things December. But I want to say, WAIT! Thanksgiving is a few weeks away. Give your guests the gift of autumn. THEN go all out green and glitter and whatever it is that makes you Christmas happy. But just wait a little bit longer. Okay?
This is my fall decorating the easy on a budget sort of way.
My front porch. It just makes me happy. What I added. A few wooden detailed items from Hobby Lobby. As always using their sales and my 40% off coupon. The leaf garlands and pretend berries almost all came from the Dollar Store. The fall pillow was in the dollar section at Target. $5. My biggest expense was the pumpkins. I love the odd shapes and colors. Adds for dimension and interest. I’ve had the wreath forever. I believe it was purchased at Sam’s Club or Costco. The pails and metal containers were either picked up at thrift stores or post season clearance…that is the best time to gather for next year. Golden Retriever? That’s our Willow, she turns 3 tomorrow!
I did something stupid. Something shallow. Something dumb. Hip Size. Idiot.
I googled my hip size. Why? I mean part of me wanted to know. Part of me wanted to think I was a bit disillusioned. Part of me knew how absolutely ludicrous this was. Yet. I did it anyway.
My hip size? It’s not small. Also, not large. But apparently it’s plus sized.

Glasses. If you belong to my family chances are you can’t see. Chances are you need corrective lenses. Yup, it’s a gift we just couldn’t help passing along to our kids.
Good news. Not only is it easier than ever to find amazing glasses online, they are actually priced right. But, you need to find a company you can trust.
