Of course I say that the day after we turned our air conditioner back on…. Florida heat wins again. It was nice for about a day though, and you better believe that I lived it up! Windows open, Caramel Apple Spice in hand and a drive in the Wrangler with the roof and doors taken off. I was a happy camper :)
I went to Michaels the other day to scope out some deals, because we all know how seasons work in the retail world. Fall rolls out in June, Halloween rolls out in August and as soon as November 1st comes, bam! They shove Christmas down your throat. Some stores even jump the gun and start Christmas in October. What about Thanksgiving and fall, people?! I love the pretty leaves, the pumpkins, the scarecrows and the colorful flowers. My house will be decked out in fall décor until the day after Thanksgiving, because we need to slow this holiday train down. Let’s enjoy each holiday as it comes, right?
Back to Michaels… I went a couple days after Halloween to search out what they had on clearance. This is what I got!
It may not look like much, but I got all of it for $5.00! Can’t beat that. I especially love my goofy looking fowl:
Here’s everything all set up:
There is barely enough room to eat on our table. And I’m totally okay with it.
But the main reason why I wanted to scope out some little fall chachkies (or dust collectors as Sean likes to call them) is because I’m hosting Thanksgiving this year! I’m so excited to host a holiday in our house! As soon as it was decided that I was hosting this face-stuffing-glutinous-holiday, I immediately started thinking of décor and how to set up our house to fit everyone. Living in a house the size of a shoe box has its advantages, especially when it comes to cleaning, but when it comes to shoving everyone inside for a holiday where our waste bands are going to be expanding, space becomes an issue. So while you guys are enjoying your weekend, I’ll be in yet another wedding and planning out how to arrange my house. Wish me luck!
