Pumpkin Carving

Tonight the hubs and I will carve our pumpkin. I found some templates over on and now just have to decide.  Which do you like?

Ahhh decisions decisions. Do you try to get creative with your pumpkins?  Saw this fantastic idea over the weekend and LOVED IT.

have to have...

I am dying for some cute brown leather boots. But the cheapie in me doesn't want to spend the cash. Thank goodness for my super shopper friend HP. She pointed me in the direction of the Rack Room and I found them.
Wanting these:
At $129 they aren't bad (and I have $20 in banana bucks) -

but then I found these:
HP got these on her lunch break and they are asking $49.99. I'm sold. Maybe. I always try to go the cheaper way, but end up getting sucked back to the higher priced item...What do you think? (HP says the cheapies look even better in person) It's worth a shot.

This is about all I can muster up today.  If I could I would be lying in one of these all day enjoying the fabulous weather we've been blessed with lately.

For the ta-ta's

In honor of this very special month, a few pretty pink images to share.

I have a few friends who are walking in a few weeks in the Charlotte for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. I couldn't be prouder of them. Such beautiful strong women!!

If you wish to donate to their cause, please go to this LINK!

Happy Weekend!

Just for Me

It's a good thing the closest Anthropologie is 35 minutes away. I would be in trouble. But if I could go and visit and maybe do some shopping, here are a few things I would have to pick up. Just for me.

 Can you believe I don't have one of these mugs? I know. Me either.
 Maybe I wouldn't mind cooking if I had such cute accessories to use.
A good book to cuddle up on the sofa with.

Just a few of my favorite things... Buffet, Mirror, Platters galore, Fresh Flowers, Candlesticks and wood floors. Oh and some bamboo canes in an umbrella stand. Oh and the exposed beam ceiling.

OK. I'm done.

Like duh, it's from Eddie Ross in the new Lonny.

They are finally here. A few bits from the new living room...I'm in love! Welcome to the Archers!

New Fall wreath and my decorated mantle below. Love a white pumpkin!

Newly covered sofa.

The Chair.

Coffee table goodness. I wonder how long the succulents will last...

And just in case you missed her the first time...

Teen Mom

Don't judge. I have been sucked into the vortex that is Teen Mom. Ok - for about 2 seasons now.

Ahhh Maci, what did you think was going to happen when you moved to Nashville after only 2 months? Poor Bentley. And p.s. enough with the spray tan. I can see where you miss your wrists and it doesn't look good on camera. At all. And Kyle was a douche.

Ohhh Amber. You scare the crap out of me. And did you see your baby run to the door crying after her dad left. She didn't wanna be stuck in that hellhole with you either. Get it together girl. You are on TV. And you have been in that apartment for at least a year - get rid of the boxes for Pete's sake. Please don't smack me - you really look good skinny.

Catelynn and Tyler. Will someone please pay for their college funds? These two kids are really trying to breaking the vicious cycle (of trailer trash) and I commend them. If I had the funds I would do it in a heart beat. Baby Catelynn should thank her lucky stars those two had her - and not Butch and Catelynn's mom. They really know they did the right thing AND that they could have been good parents. But they wanted more for their child then they have. And that is what being a parent is all about.

Never thought in a million years I would say this, but my new #1 is Farrah. This chick has really turned it around. From the brattiest to the classiest. And all she needed was the picture - Sophia is definitely her dad all over.

it's here...

The chilly fall mornings are here this week (40's! ekk) and I am in dire need of the perfect scarf. Unfortunately, looks like someone found it before me...

and the perfect fall wreath for the door. i'm digging on this one - but i will have to get my craft on...
