It's Fall Ya'll

For years I have dreaded fall. I tend to associate the season with the beginning of a school year which has always meant the beginning of a stressful time for me. After all, I did go to school for 20 years and I took my education very seriously and that's putting it mildly!!!   Fortunately, those days are all over now and I can finally enjoy the change of seasons. This year fall has been especially fun because now I have a husband. I enjoy decorating our home and making it cozy and inviting. I want to make our house something we can both be proud of. Decorating makes me feel so domestic. Haha!!

On Friday night, the hubs and I went to a pumpkin patch and bought all shapes, colors, and types of pumpkins and a bale of hay. I think he thought I was crazy when I kept picking out more and more pumpkins to add to the collection, but thankfully he kept quiet and trusted his wife. Good husband!! =) Saturday, my mommy and I attended a harvest festival and found beautiful yellow mums. So mom and I combined all the fall goodies and got to decorating. Here is the finished product.

Love these cinderella pumpkins!
The great white pumpkin!

I love the "handle" on this one.

The front entrance with fall wreaths.
I have to admit I am proud of my efforts!

A little taste of fall in my kitchen.

The foyer.

Closeup! My momma made the pumpkin in the center.
That is her in the picture in case you were wondering...

More foyer decor. My mother-in-law gave me the pumpkins and my mom made the Alabama football.
How fall is this? Too cute!!

Closeup of the football.
Yes she is talented. I am aware and grateful.
Well that's about all of the fall explosion in our home. I have more goodies to put out for Thanksgiving. Whoo hoo! Hope ya'll enjoyed! Thanks for visiting!
