I love Fall! I really do. Aside from both of my major allergens running rampid during these months, there really isn't anything I DON'T love about this time of the year! (By the way...we haven't had rain in about a month and a half now, so can someone please tell me WHY the MOLD count is still so dang high?!?!?!)
I recently purchased some mums from my sister's friend's little girl's cheer squad (confused yet?) who were selling them for $8/each as a fund raiser! Now THAT is a fund raiser I can get behind! They are grown locally, and I try to buy such things (mums, pumpkins, etc) locally each year, so it worked out perfectly! And they were delivered right to my front door so no need to get the dirt in my car (and usually, a few critters too. Bleh.)
We also went to the pumpkin patch last week with our friends Amanda and baby Bella. Amanda's husband flies with my husband, and she and I have gotten to be good friends. I told her the other day when she came over that she had reached a new level of friend to me, because I didn't stress much over picking up the house for her! HA! Not sure that is a good thing, but hey! Whatev! :)
So I combined my pumpkin patch swag and my new mums and made a little display on my sidewalk! We don't really have a lot of room on our "porch" entry area, so I did the best I could (with the 10 minutes I had to do it in...)! Enjoy!!!
I love love love "baby pumpkins." They are just so dang CA-U-TE!!!!!
