It's Weekly Lessons with Lexi and I! Today, I'm going to be doing things a little differently. I'm going to write my blurb and then add the lesson at the end (a format I
stole borrowed from Lexi). The last lesson is a looong (tons of pictures) one. Sorry!
Michael picked this up in the checkout line of Walgreens. I love me some pumpkin spice (and get super annoyed by everyone being all negative about it--it's okay to not like something without hating on everyone who does like it) but I made a disgusted face at him. It actually ended up being pretty good. I wouldn't make this a regular purchase or anything, but I was pleasantly surprised.
Lesson Learned: Grilled cheese and tomato soup tastes even better than I remembered. I didn't think this needed an intro. ;)
And now...using this link-up as an excuse to post my fall decor!
You saw this picture already, but the pumpkin and fox are fall decor, so I had to include it again. I did a little sign that you can see below.
I love this guy. I put a battery-powered tealight in there. This is one of the first Halloween decorations my mom bought for me!
I feel like our dining table/dining area looks pretty boring usually, because 1) the table/chairs/floor are a similar color, 2) the table is always empty, 3) I still haven't done the gallery wall I'm planning, and 4) the table is too small for the space. Just adding this makes it look and feel SO much better! I'm going to need centerpieces for all seasons.
Excuse how dusty this is... That gold pumpkin is there year round, and so are the skeletons. The candle is kind of only there because I don't know where else to put it, but isn't the little owl witch so cute?! My mom got it for me after Halloween last year, so I haven't been able to put it out until this year.
I have a bunch of these little tiny signs that I don't really know what to do with. I can't really hang them on a wall because they're just so small. So I put this one on the doorknob of our coat closet.
I've shown our mantle before...even with the addition of the twig pumpkin for fall. But I added the little sign that, like the one from above, is too small to hang up on a wall in my opinion. The birdhouse was made by my dad. He used to make tons of them. This one in particular has a metal roof that is the lid from a cookie tin or something. I have three of the birdhouses he made and they're all indoors because I love them so much.
I love this guy! It was between him and one with glasses and a pointy hat (no mustache) holding a spider. I feel kind of bad for him though, because twice now I've run the robot vacuum without moving him and he gets knocked over.
Aren't the little pumpkins that spell 'fall' so cute?! And then there's the little tealight holder with a fake tealight. (And Packers stuff because I have a husband. Also don't look at how dusty the Playstation is...)
Just a BBW candle with a fall sleeve!
Decorative kitchen towels from Ross for the win! I have so many, I'm going to have to switch them out a couple times.
Is this not the cutest?! I love him. The Beagle in the background was our family dog who passed a few years ago. <3
Lastly... This hallway had nothing hanging in it, and my mom bought me this sign this year. I feel like it makes a huge difference. Not sure yet what I'll hang there during other seasons, but I'll figure something out!
This is just a glittery foam hanging sign. I actually just propped it on top of a framed print we have hanging up after I took this. It does look cuter on the dog, though.
Lesson Learned: I don't ever buy home decor, apparently. Embarrassingly enough...every single piece I featured, aside from the BBW candles and candle sleeve, was purchased for me by my mom. They're all from a local boutique we love minus a few things that are from Ross. There are three more things that I didn't get around to photographing, and I bought two of them, so there's that, at least.
