Welcome to A Little Bit of Everything!
My little family blog just got a face lift from the fabulous Andrea at Slightly Askew Designs. She’s fabulous and hands-down the most creative person I know. She also has a really fun family blog!
I’ve been blogging for about 5 or 6 years. I usually blog about my kiddos and our day-to-day life. I love that my family in Missouri can keep up with what we’re doing, so it’s great! But…I decided a couple weeks ago to change it up a little. I’ll still be blogging about what we’re doing as a family and our life, but I’m going to throw in some fun mommy stuff.
We just moved into a new house, so I thought it’d be fun to blog about the new house (when a room is FINALLY finished).
I love reading blogs that have fun holiday traditions. I hope to document a little more of what goes on around our house at holiday times.
I love shopping! So…I’m also hoping to blog a little about fashion. My favorite people to dress are my kiddos so I want to share some fashion for the kiddos as well.
Basically, it’ll be “A Little Bit of Everything”…
I'm starting a series! (Let's hope I remember...ha!)
Every week I'll highlight my Top Three of something...top three nail polishes, top three devotional books, top three Halloween costumes, and the list goes on...
This week I'm highlighting my Top Three fall decorations...
A couple weeks ago, Shay told me she was decorating her house for fall. I was envious!! I feel like fall stuff is so calming…the colors, the scents, just everything about it!! So…I quickly thought about what I was doing the next week or two and came up with a day to decorate as well.
If you’re visiting from Shay’s blog, thanks so much for stopping by!! Shay is practically the sister I never had. I am so thankful for our friendship!! I spend approximately 3/5 week days with her. Our kiddos LOVE each other like siblings. We always have so much fun…whether it’s at Chick-Fil-A, the pool, the park, or the mall…no matter what we’re doing. The Shulls hold such a special place in my heart.
Welcome to the new house!! (Wonder how long we'll live here before we stop calling it that??)
#1 Fall Decoration...PUMPKINS (this is probably a given...sorry) They're all throughout my house. They carry you all the way from September up until the end of November. Love pumpkins!
One of the first purchases I made for the new house was this white bench. I found it in Canton, TX. If you're local...you HAVE to check that place out. So many treasures, so little time!! I love the bench and I can't wait to change it up with different pillows for different holidays/seasons. I made the wreath. I might get crazy and do a little DIY post on that. We'll see. :) I added a couple more touches of orange (the bucket under the fern), the pumpkin, and the pillows. I love Halloween, but I don't do a lot of decorating for it. Mostly I use "fall" decorations that can be put up in September and taken down in November. I will have to take a couple things down...but only a couple.
On the entryway table, a little iron pumpkin. Forgive me...the orange candle did NOT make the move. I forgot to get one to put in there. I'll have to pick one up this week.
#2 SIGNS/PRINTABLES...I'm loving all those printables on Pinterest. I got lucky and have found a couple signs at random stores. I JUST e-mailed a lady about making a printable into a sign. Shay has one and every time I see it I WANT ONE!! So..I'm making it happen this year!
The buffet in our dining room...I added a couple golden pumpkins and a pumpkin sign.
Just keepin' it real...the lamp shade didn't make the move either. ha!
#3 GARLAND...there are SO many different kinds of garland. My friend, Whitney, literally went out and cut branches off trees in her backyard one year to make garland and it looked so good. No matter what look or style you're going for, you can find a garland that will look great!
Our fall mantle
Sidenote: Let me just say that I'm going to be doing before/after posts of each room. We still have LOTS of work to do at the new house but we've come so far!! The house was built in 1992 and other than a few (very few) things it had not been updated. We've come a long way in 2 months, but we have a long way to go. That's why there's nothing "big" on the wall up there. I'm in the process of ordering a canvas.
Some pumpkin touches around the room.
As I was snapping pictures, this smell was happening. Heaven!! I love pumpkin, but I believe September is all about the scent of apples. LOVE it!!
I saw this "Trick or Treat" sign at Ross. I thought it was super cute.
A random little fun in the front bathroom.
Thanks so much for visiting!! Hope you got an idea or two for decorating your house. If you blog and have posted your fall decor, please leave a comment with your blog. I'd love to check them out and get some new ideas. Thank you!!
