A PRIMITIVE PLACE
Monday, September 7, 2009
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?

Speaking of food...you have to go over and join Colleen at And Baby Makes Five. She is having a "Back-To-School Recipe Pool" every Friday.
Colleen and some other lovely ladies are sharing their favorite Fall recipes. So, I decided to join in all of the fun and share one of our "go to" meals for the Fall....White Chili with Chicken...YUMMO!!!!
