Monday Musings

Good Morning Ladies!! I hope you all had a safe, fun and relaxing Labor Day weekend. Hopefully, you were all able to use those grills for one last time. Unfortunately, the weather hasn't really wanted to cooperate for BBQing here this weekend. It has been kind of cool and rainy. But the good thing about the cool temps and rain, is that it has only helped me get into the mood for my favorite season...Fall. Not that I really need any help in that area. LOL!!

Like most of you, I am so ready to pull out of all my Fall decor and get started in warming this house up. But due to us getting new carpet this coming week, that will have to wait. But wait, did I mention NEW CARPET!?!?!? LOL!! Can you tell I am SOOO excited!?!?!? I can't wait!!

It is going to be a lot of work but well worth it. In the next week we will be having to move furniture, clean out dressers and closets. But it will feel so nice to have things looking nice and having everything all organized for the new season.

So, how about you...have you all started decorating yet?

So, that means that I love everything that comes with it. Halloween, witches, pumpkin pickin', Trick or Treaters, the cool crisp evenings, the beautiful color of the leaves, cozy jeans and sweaters and good ol' comfort food.

Speaking of have to go over and join Colleen at And Baby Makes Five. She is having a "Back-To-School Recipe Pool" every Friday.
