My Week in Photos


I had a pretty productive week/weekend around the house. :)

Started planning out the photo collage on the staircase wall.

Bought all of our frames at Ikea.

Scored some $7 clearance pillows at Target!

Started my Halloween and Fall decorating!

Got my haircut. :)

We're celebrating our 3 year anniversary tomorrow. :) Though a day early, we both really wanted a piece of cookie cake!

I also painted the small half bath under the stairs! I'll post before and after pictures once everything is put back together in there. :)

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Change is Good

Fall Decorating!


Happy Almost Friday!

So, I got an email from Michael's yesterday with a coupon for an additional 25% off sale items -- yay!! This is probably one of the highest additional percentage off coupons that Michael's offers, though I have seen a rare 30% off before.

Anywho, this is a big enough discount to encourage me to shop for my fall decor. After work today, I'll be heading to Michaels (conveniently located 2 miles from my house)! I plan to grab some leave garland, hurricane vase fillers, and materials for a front door wreath! My "hurricane vases" will be made from some plain vases and candlestick holders I found at Goodwill a few weeks back for $1 each! :) I've been saving them for this project!

Since it's officially fall (could have fooled me down here in Florida) have any of you started to decorate for the season yet? If so, I would love to hear what you've done!

And for those who haven't been bitten by the fall bug yet, here's some DIY inspiration photos! :) I'll also be sure to post my little projects after they're completed!

My Week in Photos


Hi all! Hope you has a great weekend! Sorry this is a day late, we got home late last night from Savannah! We had a great time exploring the historic district with my family. :)

Aaron napping on the ride to Georgia.

We're almost there!

Saw this beautiful butterfly when we stopped for lunch. 

LOVED this historic theater.

Fall = Boot Shopping!


Hi all!

Can you believe that the first day of fall is Saturday?! eeeeeee!!! I am SO excited! :) Not only does this weekend mark the beginning of my favorite season, I'll also be headed North on a roadtrip Friday morning! We're headed to historic Savannah for my cousin's wedding! Should be a wonderful time; my mom's already planned out our entire itinerary -- including a visit to Paula Deen's restaurant The Lady and Sons (Huge Paula fan right here!)!!

Excited for the semi-cooler temperatures in Georgia, I'll definitely be packing a pair of boots -- or two! I recently scored some awesome combat boots and mid-calf brown leather lace-ups! Not only were they deeply discounted, but I had some Nordstrom bucks saved up too, woooo!!

With fall right around the corner, what's your favorite style of boot to wear in the cooler months of the year?
Here's a few hot trends & styles for 2012!

NYC in December


Booked our flights to NYC in December. Already so excited to walk all over Manhattan while emerging myself in the abundance of holiday cheer and Christmas spirit! :) :) 

I love Tampa, but I dream of living in a big city with so many cultural elements surrounding me at all times. Maybe one day.

Can fall just hurry up already?! :) Too bad we don't experience all four seasons in Florida; instead we are spoiled with hot, hot and humid, mildly cold, and freezing cold!  No changing of the leaves either, they just go from alive and green to dead and brown. Ugh.

Any upcoming travel plans?
