Outdoor Fall Decor

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

Usually I am super duper excited to decorate for every changing season and holiday, BUT, a newborn and 3 year old kind of wear me out! (Plus I'm in feeling more "simple is best" right now) :) so... We bought some pumpkins at the pumpkin patch and I pulled one little sign out of my fall stash and I'm calling it good for outside this year! 

The "Happy Halloween" sign was a garage sale find two years ago. 

Most of my flowers are still in pretty good condition so I haven't had the heart to pull them yet! I just added to them! 

This old coal bucket was a gift from my aunt and I think I like it best used as a planter! 

Our half whisky barrel has a mum planted in it... But it's not doing so well! And one wee little pumpkin sits in front.

The plan is to rake and gather leaves tomorrow afternoon to jump in!!! And then we will fill a couple "pumpkin trash bags" that I found on clearance at the end of the season last year! 

Happy fall!! 

Weekend Happenings

Monday, October 13, 2014

This weekend has been a good one :) don't you love when you can say that?

This water caraf was a gift I received this week and I am absolutely in love with it! ;) 

Friday started early and I was up by myself for a couple hours! Doesn't that sound amazing and strange all at once???? The hubby was sleeping and BOTH boys were sleeping... I'd call that success! 

I was able to get in some quiet time reading my bible and also some chores done. Laundry, ironing and clutter cleared in the kitchen and dining room! 

Our town had a small 1 mile fun run/5K race on Saturday to raise money for the senior prom. Parker and I did the 1 mile run/walk and had lots of fun! 

Just to show how far ahead of me he was in the beginning... He is the small little guy in black! ;) (he had his "boosters" on) haha!!

After the race Saturday we went and did some cleanup work at the farm. We cleared the dead plants out of the garden  and cleaned one of the chicken coops out. I finally was able to get a photo of the Barred Rock rooster... We think he is rather handsome! Here he is with a few of his ladies! 

Hope your weekend was great!
