It's Fall!

It officially became fall last night at 10:00. Yippee Skippy.
And I hear rumors of a cold front coming through over the weekend.
To make it smell like fall in your home put a pot of water on the stove. Just sprinkle in some cinnamon and cloves. You can add either apples or oranges too if you want.

Now don't go and take a nap while this is simmering. I learned that the hard way yesterday. My house smelled like burn instead of cinnamon. It's not the mood I wanted to set.

And if your husband is a fireman, you get in big trouble!

A safer way to smell like fall is to use this yummy hand soap from Bath and Body Works.

It's called Creamy Pumpkin. You can also get it in a candle!

Here's what my little pumpkin is doing right now while I am blogging:

The batteries on the swing are dying. We are going to pick some up today, otherwise we are all in trouble!
Happy Fall Y'all!

Katie looks so different! Cuter by the day. =)

I LOVE Fall. LOVE it!! My husband is making me wait to decorate until the eve of October. I'm getting very antsy!!

I recently opened my Etsy shop. You might find something in there Katie would like! =) Just search bourdiers under sellers and that's me.

P.S. I know what you mean about the swing batteries. I had to push Trent for about a week until we finally got new ones. haha

I remember the days of rushing to Walgreens for 4 D batteries for the swing. I am surprised that I did not keep a huge stash for emergencies, probably because they are expensive! And with how much my daughter loved her swing, we went through batteries once a week!

My sister in law turned me on to your blog after I started my own. I love it! You are so stinking creative. Your quirkiness is unique and inspiring. I love your posts about fall and decorating. My Mom would burn potpourri on the stove when I was a kid. Burning the apples and cinnamon reminds me of those days. Recently I blogged about making homemade applesauce. I would love for you to check it out @ www.johnniesjunk.blogspot.com. I still have a lot to learn about blogging but I am really enjoying having a creative outlet. Congratulations on your beautiful baby girl. I have two kids 7 & 4 and I struggle every day to still have time to design and find that balance but it's so worth it. From Florida, Johnnie
