Fall Friday

I am in such a "fall" mood. Even though summer still has her last grasp on us here in Texas until, um, winter (We're not much for all 4 seasons here... it's hot, and then it's cold. Very little in-between) - I am thinking "fall".

I've been following along as the Nester has been getting ready for fall and posting all kinds of great decorating ideas. That even inspired my post today over at Elizabeth Anne Designs. Twigs, branches, leaves, pumpkins, warm colors, football on TV. This is most definitely my favorite time of year.

So, this weekend I am going to take advantage of Chris being out of town and the heavy rain that is forecast for us (all weekend long, damn!), and I'm going to "fall-ify" my house. I have a wreath I'm going to put up, pinecones, twigs.... and I'm definitely going to be watching football (go Cowboys!!).
I might even work on painting our horribly ugly kitchen. Yes, I have the paint. There's just a fruity wallpaper border standing in my way. But I think I will win. ;-)

I'm also planning on getting together with my sisters to put together a guest book/engagement photo album for our wedding (that is coming up in 64 days!). I read somewhere once that putting your pictures in an album and having guests sign around it is vain and silly. But as I can't think of a better idea, that's the one we're going with. Wish cards thrown into a bowl? Kind of cool, but I don't want to take the time afterwards to put them in a book of some kind. And there again, it's probably not something that we'll pull out and read often. Polaroid photo book?? Again, cool idea. But as I don't have a Polaroid, nor do I know somebody who does... it's kind of hard. Also, I can think of several people who won't think it's cute or fun. And also several people who I would be scared to look at their photos and poses/gestures that they chose. So - we're going with a scrapbook where we'll put a few pics of us from our engagement session, and we'll ask people to sign it with any messages/wishes/advice they'd like to leave. I will definitely photograph it and post it next week.

Hope you all have a great weekend!!

We had fall start as soon as Labor Day passed.

It was crazy Labor day a high of 90 the next day rainy with a high of 60. But we're starting to collect our fall stuff, mostly doing fall recipes and got to get some more hot chocolate.

I can't wait for the apples to get in so we can go and get a bag or two or maybe 12.

My best friend HP is making us a photo guestbook. She's going to use photos from the 6 years we've been together, so it will include our family and friends too.
