Fab Fall Blog Chall Day 4...also It's Okay!

Linking up TWICE today with my girls Neely and Amber.
Fabulous Fall Blog Challenge


First up...The Fabulous Fall Blog Challenge Day 4! Today's theme is...

Fall Decorating

Oh how I love this topic!!! I love to decorate, period. Fall decs are some of my favorites, probably because they stay up for a long time. I put them up in the middle of September and leave them up until Thanksgiving. The day after Thanksgiving though...it's CHRISTMAS TIME!! :)

I made those bad boys last week and I LOVE THEM. These are from pinterest, but mine are really close. I did two of each color and they now live on our picture window. Adorable.

This is our project this weekend! :)
We also have tons of little pumpkins all over. Rory calls them "her" decorations and she moves them as she sees fit. Perfect for toddler hands. :) I picked some adorable metal yard signs at Ross the other day. A 2 foot tall Mummy that holds a sign that reads "I Love My Mummy" and an 18 inch sparkly owl that's "perched" on a Happy Halloween sign. And of course there's 2 scarecrows on our porch, a boy and a girl. ;)
How do you decorate for fall??

Now on to link up number two...
Its Ok Thursdays


It's okay...
to subsist solely on coffee, Greek Yogurt and Diet Coke somedays. There's just no time.
to have cried when your Hunter boots didn't fit your ballerina calves. Even though you love your legs, you really loved those Hunter boots! SAD.
to have no clue what to get your son for his birthday next month. It's much easier when they can tell you what they want! :)
to be super annoyed by the Yo Gabba Gabba song playing on the tv right now. Yikes.
to some days just need your mom and dad like you're 6 again.
to be excited when a new episode of one of Rory's shows comes on. As long as it's not Dora.
to be using the money you are getting refunded from the Hunter Boots on something just as fabulous for yourself...anyone have a suggestion?? :)
to need a day off from life.

What's okay with you this week??

Sidebar! I'm going to be hosting a 31 giveaway next week! Keep your eyes peeled for that one. :)

Love the footprints! I tend to decorate more for fall than Halloween.

I'm so glad you love your ballerina legs! Haha :)

And yay for a giveaway!

I always have a problem fitting in to shoes/boots. They never fit just right. I think my feet hate me on a daily idea. I love fall decorations too, but I realized the other day that I have about 5 things. So my house is not very fall and I'm feeling down about that this year.

Love the fall decor, especially the footprints.

I just put my stuff up this week :)

Kelly said...

I LOVE those jars!! And the ghost footprints?? One of my friends did that with her girls and it is SUCH a precious, super easy craft. Just adorable :-D

Amber said...

Cutest fall projects, EVER! Girl, you be proud of those dancer calves. I've got some muscular ones too, but I love 'em :)

I definitely think that coffee, greek yogurt and diet coke provide all of your dietary requirements for the day! :) I love diet coke... it's the most delicious thing ever! And completely agree with taking a day off of life... a girl needs a little quiet time sometimes!

Looking forward to your thirty one giveaway! Happy Thursday! XOXO, Stephanie @ Blonde Highlights
