I think I may have found my Halloween costume this year:

(If you haven't seen the movie Hocus Pocus, you are really missing out.)

Now, I need to get two of my girlfriends to join in with me or it may not turn out just right!

I actually dressed up as this once when I was little and I LOVED it. I remember it snowed on Halloween that year...wonder if that will happen this year too???

Happy ThURsDaY!

Saturday...where to go?

Hi Friends,

I would like to visit a pumpkin patch/apple orchard this weekend and I'm looking for suggestions. It can be located in the Lexingon, KY, Northern KY, or Cincinnati, OH area. A year or two ago we visited Evans Orchard and Cider Mill in Georgetown, KY (details here). It was really great. We could go there again, but I'm hoping to try something new.

Any suggestions? (Oh and it has to have all different types of pumpkins and gords like the photo above.)

Love - Love - Love

No shocker here...I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Fall! With that being said, for the past few years, it has been the time of year when things start to slow down in the housing market and we are strapped for cash. It lingers throughout the entire Holiday Season...maybe this year will be different...hmmm. Anyway, maybe that's all for the best because if I could, I would fill my house with fall decorations, halloween decorations, mums galore, etc. Here is one of my favorite things I did with my house several years ago for halloween.

Isn't it cute! I think I saw the idea in a Martha Stewart magazine and I thought it was the greatest idea! It sat up on our mantel.

I'm trying to come up with some inexpensive ways to decorate for the fall and I would love any ideas!

I LOVE these yarn wreaths (sold here by Heartfelt Yarn Wreaths on Etsy):

I tried my hand at a yarn wreath a while back and I wasn't thrilled with the outcome but maybe it's time to try again!

I'm ready to pick out mums, set out decorations, burn pumpkin candles, eat cinnamon ice cream (Greaters), sit by a fire, cozy up in UGG's and sweatshirts, watch football games, and go to KEENELAND! Yay! Speaking of UGGs, I think I could use these:

(As I write this, I just got a tweet from a friend that says "Momma needs a new pair of Ugg's...LOL)

I would love to see your fall decorations!

Labor day has come and gone...

Well, the pools are now closed and Labor Day has once again come and gone. (Good thing we still have the lake to visit this weekend.) I can't complain though because that means it's almost time for this:

I love the Fall!

This past weekend a friend of ours got married in French Lick, IN and it was sooooo pretty there! We had a great time and already want to go back! Here's where we stayed:

This is the inside of the resort lobby. I really want to go back around Christmas time...I'm sure it would be decorated soooo pretty!

Time to finish out the work day! TTYL!

Table is Finished...

Here's how it turned out!

I'm actually really happy with it! I'll post another picture once it's in the kitchen and decorated the way I want it!

We are off to French Lick IN tomorrow for a friends wedding and will be gone until Sunday.

Happy Labor Day Weekend!
