Chalk Pumpkins

Friday, September 27, 2013

Yesterday was my day off, and I decided to spend most of the day working on some DIY projects! That usually means breaking out the chalkboard paint. surface is safe! Anyway, I had picked up some $1 mini pumpkins at Wal-Mart the other day, and decided that they would be even better with a coat or two of chalkboard paint! Who likes traditional pumpkins anyway?

I think they are pretty stinkin' cute! In fact, they may be my favorite fall decor!


Another Year Older

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

Wow, I cannot believe that I have turned another year older! Where does the time go?! I spent the weekend celebrating 25 with my friends and family. Celebrations kicked off on Thursday with birthday pancakes! (The pancakes were actually in celebration of my friends birthday!) What can I say...I like to celebrate!

Friday night I got to spend time with my sweet little niece, Kinleigh, and adorable nephews! I am a very lucky auntie!

 Saturday was a fun filled day with Lauren! We started the day with a trip to a local fall festival...imagine pumpkins, crafts, and the sweet smell of kettle corn! I left the festival with some yummy scents to burn around my house! Seriously...don't come over unless you like the smell of pumpkin!

 After the fall festival, we went to the Wooden Nickel Winery! We had a great time tasting different wines and chatting about life. We have both decided that 25 is going to be an awesome year!

 The rest of the day involved a DIY project, a photo shoot, an air hockey match, New Girl, and a slumber party!

Sunday, Dane and I went to church and then had lunch with his family. Later, we went and did some shooting, and had supper with my family. A whole day with my husband is my favorite way to celebrate! (Plus, Sunday was Dane's half birthday...another thing to celebrate!) If you want something to celebrate let me know...I search those out like it's my job!

Last night, we wrapped up the celebrating with supper at Buffalo Wild Wings and frozen yogurt! I basically had the best birthday ever...bring on 25!


I Love Fall

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

Are you guys tired of hearing about my love for fall!? I am sorry...I really can't help it! I have not had a chance to work on many DIY projects this month, but I have a couple that I am hoping to get to soon! In the mean time here are some of my lovely fall decorations!

My uncle made us that awesome bench! Isn't it the greatest!? You can find the tutorial for my autumn bunting here!

Have you started decorating for fall?

Sorry it took me so long to get this post up! I have been busy, busy, busy enjoying my favorite month of the year! However, it is going to be hard for September to top August! What a great end to summer! There was vacation, a new (very adorable) nephew, news that we are going to have a niece, and lots of other wonderful reasons to celebrate! I got to spend lots of time with family and great friends, AND I did a little work on our house! (Adding curtains counts as work, right?)

What does September have in store? I have already had a pretty busy month, but the weeks to come are going to be great! I am looking forward to several senior sessions, a fun filled girls' night, lots of hot apple cider, and some birthday celebrations! I am feeling very blessed! I hope you all have a wonderful month.
