31 Days: Day 4- It's Fall Ya'll!!!

Saturday, October 4, 2014

Fall is by FAR my favorite time of year. Mostly because I can not STAND to be hot and sweaty. People are constantly remarking about how much they love SUMMER, but to say that I detest the months of July and August would be an understatement. :)

The problem with this love for cool weather and loathing of the heat, is that we live Dallas, Texas. It seems like it is hot 90% of the year. 

I was so ready to break out my fall clothing and decorations in September, but I refuse to put a pumpkin on my porch while it was still 98 Degrees outside and I would be sweating while I did it. 
That said; we had a little COOL (not cold) front roll in with the storms on Thursday, and I jumped at the opportunity to drag out some fall decorations last night. 

My Table Center Piece

That's our candy bucket that we pass out candy from, but until then it's just a decoration on the fire place, with some "crazy hair" aka: Halloween Garland.

Caroline's Candy Corn (SHE IS OBSESSED) and a pumpkin something scented candle, which can turn ANY room into fall.

This is my entry way. I'm SOOOO in love with my pine cones. I bought them for $5.00 at a garage sale from a couple who had collected them from the Redwood Forest!! They are so heavy and authentic, not to mention spiky, and smell just like pinecones should. They told me they have had them for at least 20 years, and who knows how old they were before they picked them up! I just think they are such a neat touch to our fall decorations... and for five bucks! <3 p="">

Here on our doorstep sits my Giant new Jack-O-Lantern.  This was a birthday gift from my grandparents and I just love him! He's so cute! I can't wait to light him up for halloween night's trick-or-treating, for now, he's just chilling with our Razorback Gnome. Hey, just because it's fall doesn't mean it's not football season! PS- that pumpkin is like 1 million lbs!!! My Grandparents even had him strapped in the seatbelt like a person when they brought him to me! lol

...and the famous "blue door" sporting it's festive door hanger as well. 

There is nothing like fall to me. It changes my mood about EVERYTHING. I love the smells, the colors, the weather, the clothes, the sports, and the impeding holidays.

After getting everything out yesterday, we have been siting around with a pumpkin candle lit all day watching football, and enjoying every bit of this cool weather. 

Now if I can just survive the 90 degree weather in the forecast this week. :(
Dang you Texas!
