    “Boo” Button Pumpkin

    I’ve been a busy bee the past 3 weeks working on new projects.  Some of which have been Halloween/Fall themed.  And as I promised last time, here is one of the finished Halloween projects. Whatever the holiday, we try to decorate for it in my family.  For Little Bear, it let’s her know there is something different around the season or time of year.  And she looks forward to seeing what I come up with for decorations.  For Mr. O, he likes the home feeling, well, like a home.  As for me, I just enjoy knowing that everyone else appreciates and looks forward to it all.  So each year, I…

    Playing in the Rain

    It’s raining!  And at 5:30 in the evening.  It is a rare occasion when it rains here in the desert.  So when it does, you almost rejoice.  And that’s exactly what the kiddos did this evening. Even though it’s late October, I’m not worried about Little Bear getting sick from being outside…with no shoes (we are from Kentucky!  Bahaha, j/k!  Seriously.  I’m kidding.)  But yeah, it’s still in the upper 80’s with a pretty good rain out.  So no worries about a cold coming on from being outside.  What is your weather like right now?  Are you playing in the rain?

    Tuesday Tidbits

    Welcome Tuesday!  It’s Tuesday Tidbits! 1.  Reading Material.  My preferred reading material is a cookbook.  Yeah, that’s right.  I like to read cookbooks like novels.  It’s mystery, drama, science, and suspense all in one.  I wonder what people did back in the day; like back before recipes were written down.  (bahahahaha)  I know, I’m crazy. 2.  Cold Pizza.  I am obsessed with cold pizza.  There is absolutely nothing better than a deliciously cold slice for lunch.  Or better yet, BREAKFAST! 3.  I live on the Yellow Brick Road… or at least I should.  (I’m not crazy – at least this time – so, let me explain.)  I am very surprised…

    Inspiration Day

    It’s time I quite beating myself up about not having the “back home” decorating done and start figuring out what this home’s décor will look like. So to begin, I’ve got a pile of Phoenix Home & Garden magazines – provided by a family member. I plan to spend today finishing a few fall projects – which I’ll be sharing soon – and getting a little inspiration. I’m excited to see where this goes. 🙂 *I just realized that there is a “Crawl” magazine in there.  Just disregard that.  Definitely not using that for decoration inspiration!

    Tuesday Tidbits

    It’s Tuesday again.  Which really is just another Monday.  But anyway, let’s get this thing rollin’… 1.  It’s Fall.  (duh!)  No really.  It is officially fall here in the southwest.  Now I know the rest of the world has already been blessed with cooler temps and dreams of beautiful landscapes of golden yellow, orange, and plum.   Here in the desert, though, it has very much still been summer.  (Okay, not really because we all know the official first day of fall was last week.  But you know what I mean.)  But now…!  This week!  Cooler temperatures have crept in, signally the start of the fall season and all things…
