A Harvest Party with Home Depot

When the most fabulous ladies from Home Depot ask if you want to do another Style Challenge it's hard to pass up. This time around it was for Halloween, to be honest we aren't big on the holiday so instead we made ours into more of a harvest theme. Celebrating fall is something I am 100% behind. It is my favorite sesons afterall. These are a few out takes from the day. The best part it forced me to think outside the box and of course, have a fun party with the family. The only down fall is during shoot time is was ridiculously HOT. HA. I must say though I am quite proud with the way this one turned out. It's been awhile since I have done a DIY and this one still makes me giddy. I also shared a few entertaining tips that serve me well. Hope you will go take a gander...

Fall {hip-hip-hooray}

It's the second day of fall and I could not be any more thrilled. A new season always brings me new beginnings. A fresh start to conquer the things I have been wanting to do. First on the agenda is to be a better blogger. HA. The season also brings all the meals that I am actually not too bad at making. Soups, chillies, and warm baked goods will abound. The Mr and I purged the kiddos rooms over the weekend and let me tell you, I feel more at peace. Cardigans will be donned. Totes to carry all our baseball, ballet, and horseback riding gear will be put to constant use. I am not sure about you, but I always enjoy adding a new piece to the house too. My eye is on the tucker chair currently.

Good Finds {lamps}

Yesterday I was browsing Home Depot and came across some gorgeous lamps. The brass, black, and shape had me at hello. Throw in a great price and it has me contemplating where I could put these!Oh, and for some reason they are cheaper on line. HA!

A Steal 

Yesterday I was out with a friend who had to make a return at Gap. As I wandered the store I came across these on a super clearance. They were under $20.00!!! I loved the leather and the bows are sweet without being childish. Needless to say I fell head over heels and they headed home with me. Might be worth a trip to the local Gap for some cute steals.


5 years

Today marks the day that I have been blogging for 5 years! It seems like I have been doing this forever and at the same time it seems like no time at all. I am grateful for all you that still read and for those that helped me get this little blog off the ground. I know blogging is not what it used to be. There weren't too many of us at the start and now things like pinterest and instagram make blogs a much lesser source of inspiration, but I really do hope they stick around a little bit longer. So a huge thank you to giving me the drive to stay creative. Well, most of the time!
