Fall Challenge

Starting October 4th, I am going to partcipate in the Making Your Home a Haven Fall 2010 Challenge that Courtney from is hosting.

I'm excited about this. Right now I am struggling with what my mind knows are my responsibilities and the fact that I have been really really lazy.  I don't know what is going on right now but I am just not wanting to do much of anything. Not only is my house a mess but the general atmosphere and attitude in my home has shifted.  Granted we are moving in a couple months but I still feel like my house should feel like home while we are living here.

If you are interested in participating with me you can check out her blog.  She even has a nice video there of her explaining the challenge. She's so sweet! I'm learning a lot from her posts and her website.

Thanks for stopping by!

Smells So Yummy...

These are the candles I buy:

They are like $6 at the Wal-Mart and they smell so good! They aren't Yankee Candle or Celebrating Home but they are better I think.  My favorite scents are the seasonal ones they have out right now. The pumpkin and the cranberry frost...yummy. My pumpkin one has been burning all day long and my house smells like fall. I even have the windows open and I can still smell it.

I really LOVE these Febreeze candles. I suggest everyone try them. You won't be disappointed.

Plus they come in little glass jars and when they're done you can wash them out and use the little jar for something. I have some I use as makeup brush holders and even when I make little individual desserts I use these jars...they're adorable.

I'm ready to bake something candle is making me hungry.

Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't been around much lately.  Been really busy with pre-school and church and then I was in the hospital for almost a week. Blah it's been a mess!  Anyway I'm working on cleaning all week. My house has gotten out of control and we are going to be moving in a couple months and I'm going through a HUGE clean out of my home. We're having a yard sale this coming Saturday and whatever doesn't get sold is going to Goodwill just as long as it's out of my house lol.  We really have too much stuff!

We are adding 2 new additions to our family also! I'm so excited. We are getting a pony & a puppy! Since we are moving into a smaller house but on a 120 acre farm we'll have plenty of room for animals and I'm super excited.  The pony will be for Hayden he will be 4 in November and I figure this will be a great early birthday present for him. He's going to be so excited!  He's a horse fanatic like his mama!

I wish I could say I'll be decorating for the fall but we really don't have the money for fancy decorations and with us moving soon it'll just be more stuff to pack.  I'm definitely hoping to be decorating the new house for the winter and Christmas! Going to be going to a huge craft show in Pennsylvania also after Thanksgiving so that will get me lots of good decorations!

I have some recipes that I came up with and when I make again I will be taking pictures and posting them here. They were a trial the first go around so the next time I'll post them as they were for sure really very yummy!

Well that's it for now! I promise I'll be posting more often just been really busy but things are slowing down.

Thanks for stopping by!
