Random


Not to freak anyone out, but I am a total planner and my counter on the right there says that there are only 93 days left until Christmas! I'm officially starting to go into FREAK OUT mode! haha I normally and in full swing of purchasing (our fam is huge) and I haven't purchased the first thing, well I have one thing, but it is something small for my mother in law. Anyway, I guess this is mostly due to not having anywhere to put it. Although, I could put it in one of the storage buildings that we are renting, but then what would I do with it once I got into my house? I will not have anywhere to hide the Santa presents. Decisions, decisions....


Since everyone is posting about fall, it brings me to another point. Fall is my favorite time to decorate. Fall just puts me in a great mood and makes me have more energy for some reason. I love to clean my house with the windows open and a candle lit. I love to decorate with the orangy and red leaves and jack o lanterns for Halloween. I am not able to do that this year and it is driving me bonkers. I'm sure my mother in law would let me decorate her house, but it is off of the highway and no one would see it anyway. Hopefully we will be moved in around Thanksgiving or so and maybe I will get to decorate for Christmas. I hope.


So, what is your fave time of year and what is your fave thing to decorate your home in? :)

My favorite time of year is also Fall. I love the smell of leaves burning and pumpkin spice candles. I have a simple favorite decoration, I LOVE to put out my fall wreath on the front of the house...

I like fall - mostly because I don't like the scary halloween stuff, so it's pumpkins and things I can leave up from oct through thanksgiving, I like that. I love Christmas though too and getting out all my nativities. I can't believe it's coming up so close, I got some toys on sale at target the other day, last year at this time I was done, but this year I didn't want to buy summer sale things because we didn't want to move them. boo I hope you are somewhere by Christmas!

I think mine is fall too. I don't really decorate inside my house for any season but Christmas though. I used to before I had kids for every holiday, but I just don't anymore. I am really wanting to get me a few fall things to put outside here this year.

I am anxious to hear about what yalls plans are going to be for your new home.

Fall is my favorite time of the year. It's when I first met my husband and my boys. All of the beautiful colors and the feel of the weather just takes me back.
BTW, your picture is in the mail. :-)

With my philosophy that I can put on more than I can take off I LOVE winter. Going snowmobiling in West Yellowstone the past few years has spoiled me. When the snow is coming down hard the world is SOOOOOO quiet. If you aren't outside just relaxing on the couch looking out the window watching it is just SOOOOO relaxing. Add the smell of a fire place and.....I am going to miss snowmobiling this coming year :(
