Fall Is Coming!!!

After a summer of 100 plus degrees, I was beyond thrilled to wake up to a chilly 51 degrees this morning.  I could hardly contain my excitement as I opened the door for Hubby to load up the kids a few minutes ago.  It is downright chilly out there folks.  It made me want to dance in the streets in my shorty pajamas.  I opted not to, for fear of being kicked out of my neighborhood for public indecency. 

So, anyway, this cool spell has gotten me all excited about fall.  Fall is, after all, my favorite season.  Why?  Well, I have gained a few pounds over the years and I tend to look a little better with some coverage, ya know?  Not even to mention that I love my boots.  Plus, I get to wear my flannel pajamas (not with my boots).  I love my flannel pajamas!  Also, the "real" NFL season starts tomorrow night.  WOO HOO!  Go Cowboys! 

The other thing I love about fall is the decorating.  I dream of a stately front door to decorate.  BUT, those big gorgeous double wood doors would look a little silly on my little bitty house.  Wanna see what is inspring me these days?

I have seriously GOT to have those lanterns this year.  I've been dying for them for two years now.  I'm hoping to find a good deal on them.  I love all the fall ideas I've been stalking seeing on Pinterest.  UGH!  If only I had lots of $$.  Guess I better get my frugal crafty hat on and get this fall party started. 

So, are you excited about fall??? 



  1. We've had a crazy hot & humid summer here too (in NC). Just like you I was thrilled to open the door this morning to a chill in the air. It was 58 degrees and I was SO loving it!
    Love your post and all the beautiful photos. Fall is my very favorite season and I can't wait!
    I have a similar post in the works...great minds think alike, you know ;)

  2. I'm just trying to decide when it's appropriate to break out the fall stuff, LOL. I love it!!!! I've already put my wreath on the front door;) it is such a gorgeous morning here!!

  3. Oh, girl, am I EVER excited about fall! I need to get some stuff out of the attic ASAP. Fall is my favorite season by far! :)

  4. You wanna believe I'm excited for fall! I love your inspiration pictures and I've got my eyes open for some cute lanterns, too- and a pair of those cute tall boots. The truth is I'm looking forward to getting back into my jeans because I'm tired of shaving my legs every other day!

  5. I've not only gotta get more money for more fall "pretties", but a bigger from patio, too!

  6. I love Fall was actually not too hot this morning - I won't say it was cool..but it def wasn't as hot as it's been!

    Those lanterns are great - I'll keep an eye out for you too :)

  7. I saw some of those lanterns at TJs the last time I was there. I want some too. Bet you get yours first.
