My Current Favorites



I hope everyone is having a great week so far.  It's been raining here for about 5 days now and will for a few more days I hear, plus there's a hurricane nearby.  I've been wearing my rain jacket a lot more!  I'm not complaining about the cooler temps though. It's finally starting to feel like fall around here which makes it more ok to wear fall clothes and accessories.  I don't own any of my current favorites this week but they are still on my wish list... although some will have go on sale first.  I'll be honest, I rarely buy anything that's not on sale.  Almost everything will go on sale at some point, sometimes even right after it comes out if there's a friends and family sale or a holiday sale.  I will spend more on shoes though because they get used more and many can be worn in multiple seasons.  What are your favorites for cooler weather?

I hope that everyone had a great Labor Day weekend.  Ours was very busy as we decided to paint our living and dining room areas.  It's something that I've been wanting to do for a while, plus it really needed it because the walls were getting too scuffed up.  The rooms were both neutral colors, but different shades and I wanted them to be all one color since they are adjoining.  I also wanted to move some shelves from the living room to the dining room and move a few other small wall decorations.  After multiple samples we went with Antique White by Behr.  I'll plan to post some after pictures once I get everything back up on the walls!

Our color samples on the "dining" room color. The Antique White is on the far left and also on the bottom left.  

And I thought this was just a cute picture of Mary-Grace and Josh shopping in the tool section of Home Depot while we were waiting on the paint.
