I feel like getting crafty with my pumpkins this year.  With all of my extra time and all...
But seriously how cute are all of these?  I love those topiaries with the ribbon! And I could spray paint the chevron pattern on.  Adorbs! 
Anyone else doing anything fun with your pumpkins this year?
If so, please share!

love and coffee

Isn't that the truth.  I've been up A LOT the last two nights with Henry.  Pretty sure he has another ear infection, so off to the Dr. we go this morning.  I will post something more exciting later, but right now I need to go refill my coffee cup!

burgundy pants

burgundy pants

Ok, so I when I read that burgundy, aka "maroon", was THE color for fall I was a little sad.  My love for burgundy has been non-existent.  That was true until I saw these pants at J.Crew.  J.Crew has a way of making everything look fabulous.  So I decided I better give burgundy a second chance and try to love it, at least for this fall.  I am also depressed about saying goodbye to my colorful summer wardrobe.  So here I paired these pants with lots of color options!  And now I am in Love!  At least temporarily!

hello week

As I sit at the computer pinning my little heart out, my head becomes filled with ideas for my house.  Too bad it involves spending lots of money.  I am in the market for a new rug for the family room as well as fabric to recover the tufted sofa in there.  I am struggling with this.  I have been going through fabrics for weeks now and cannot make a decision.  I am tempted to go back to white but remember how badly the last couches were abused and at that time I only had one child! 
Wish me luck as I try to make a decision! Ugh!

The color yellow and I have always had a love/hate relationship.  I love it and use it in my house and then I am over it.  I get rid of it and then I fall back in love with it again.  I think we need therapy...
And these photos make me love some yellow decor!

lovin me some leopard print

So if you all didn't know already, leopard is pretty hot this fall.
Wait a minute... I have ALWAYS loved leopard print!  It is pretty much a classic print that looks great on everyone.  
And right now I am really coveting these looks! 
Love, love, love!
Here are a few of my fav's below:
 How about those amazing leopard shorts with that white blouse...

DIY projects

So lately I haven't been posting much and the lack of posts has been due to summer vacations, end of summer vacation/wedding of one of my best friends since childhood, crazy-hyper children, sick children, sick mommy, and an addiction to pinterest and DIY projects.  So here are a few of the things that I have been doing in the last month!

I read this book in two days on vacation during naptime.  Loved it but sad the way it ended because I wanted more!  So onto the next book!

When I got home I decided to get organized and made several baking mixes that I found on pinterest that came with free printable labels and directions.  Find it here if you would like to do the same!  This fun project made me feel like I saved a million dollars.  Especially when it comes to brownie mix, blueberry muffins, and cornbread mix!

Then I printed off lots of adorable iphone/ipad charger labels with my monogram that I found on Forchicsake blog which has adorable DIY ideas and printables.  Especially for you gals that love seeing your monogram on everything you own like I do!

and a little DIY art to perk up the potty!  
Last but not least a Pink and White Chevron 48x48 canvas that I painted.  I love it and it definitely makes a statement but I haven't decided where to put this one yet and that is my mission for today.
