Our Weekend

Sunday, September 14, 2014
Alternatively titled Fall Overload.

First, I wanted to thank all of you who left comments around their experiences with toddler beds! With all inputs taken into consideration we have narrowed our search down to two. Now we're just waiting for Parker to say the words and it's operation big girl room!

For the majority of last week, a cold made an unwelcome visit in our household leaving Parker with a nagging cough and me with a less than functioning nose. Always a good time. Needless to say this weekend was devoted to resting and getting a jump start on transitioning our home decor in homage to autumn. Typically we are ones to decorate a week or two before the next season hits so this year I totally feel on top of our fall game. 

This girl's hair has just been the best lately. I love nothing more than to leave it down and let it blow in the wind, but her bangs have always been so long that it's a constant struggle to keep them out of her face. So more often times than not, its clipped to the side or thrown up into a pony. 

Now that Parker can actually distinguish items, colors and numbers, it's fun to take her out to places like farmers markets and plant nurseries where she can point out fruits and flowers. So naturally, she about lost her mind when she saw a 'puckin' in real life since we've been eyeing them in some of her books at home. It was beyond adorable to see her run around and pick out 20 pumpkins that she wanted to take home. We settled on five, a few mums and some Chinese lanterns and called it a day.

One of the first places I tend to focus on when decorating for seasons/holidays is our entry way. It's such an easy area because it doesn't take much effort and it's one of the first rooms that people walk into so it sets the tone from the get-go. Have you ladies heard of Chinese lanterns? Probably, since I'm sort of a rookie to this whole plant thing. I picked these pretty things up at a market and immediately thought of them for the entry way. Throw them in a tall cylinder vase and add in a mercury glass pumpkin and you have yourself a quick and easy fall entry way!

In other news, we are heading to Lake Placid at the end of this week with my parents and my brother and his girlfriend! My younger brother won't be able to make it, so it looks like we'll need to plan another trip in the future. It's one of our favorite places so we can't wait to get there and unwind and enjoy the company surrounded by mountains and TONS of fall foliage of course. Have a happy week! xx
