Decorated Over the Weekend

Even though the hot weather is still here
in Florida, I am in the Fall spirit!! 
The nights are starting to cool down a bit so we are able
to leave the sliding doors open...yeehaw, a save on the a/c!
I was able to get some decorating done this weekend with the help of my kids and husband. 
Thought I would share a few pics. 
Out in front of our palm tree (my mum has yet to bloom, should be a beautiful orange)

The front porch

A little basket I put together

I love hanging leaves aroung all of my mirrors!

The kids knocked over one of my birdhouses, see the split in top.  (Will have to get hubby to fix:)

One of my Many shelves

Even the back of the commode!
Thanks for stopping by. 
It's nice to be able to sit down and post, hopefully I will be able to do it more often and get back to visiting everyone.
Enjoy your week:)

Where Have I Been

It has been so long since I posted!  I really needed some major time off! 
I have to admit, this was one of the hardest summers I had with my kids home. 
They completely wore me out! 
I knew I wouldn't have time to post so I just kind of gave up.  I would jump on every now and then just to see how all of you were doing but not for very long...
my time was consumed with my four little ones and then some! 
This is the first time in twelve years that I have not had a child home with me. 
The first day was very emotional.  I have to admit, yes I missed them but I think it was
more about, "I can't believe I have waited so long for this and now it's actually here!"

My oldest has started middle school and my youngest is now full time...yeehaw!

Now it's all about finding me. 
Not to sound selfish, but I feel I have lost myself so much. 
I wasn't sure where to start out, but today I went online and saw many of your blogs.  I absolutely love Fall and you all have inspired me to get moving...whether decorating, painting, sewing...I just want to do what I like to do for right now. 
Oh believe me, I am still way to busy to fit in everything, but I am going to try and take some time out for myself while I have the peace and quiet:)

I do want to mention one more thing.  I won this giveaway back in July and I want to say "Thank you" to Patti of Winding Vine Wanderings

Hope to be back soon!
Enjoy your day:)
