It Was Summer…

…And suddenly it was fall.

Or so my calendar tells me. The weather, apparently, has heard otherwise as it’s still hanging out in the mid-90s every day.  Flowers are still blooming, the neighbor kids are still playing in the sprinkler, and the trees are as lush and green as ever.

In fact, if it weren’t for the pumpkins at the grocery store, you might not know it was fall in Texas at all.

Which is why, I guess, that the thought of decorating for the season didn’t even occur to me until 8:00pm last night.  I was laying on the couch watching Chopped and playing on Pinterest (my favorite home-alone activities), when I came across a couple gorgeous fall mantles.

I realized I need to get my rear in gear and get going on our fall decor! I’m going have Kev get my fall tub-o-lub out of the attic tonight and maybe I’ll spend my lunch hour at Hobby Lobby. You know, just in case anything might catch my eye.

PS. Here’s last year’s fall fireplace.

Does it feel like fall yet where you live? Have you done any fall decorating yet? What’s your favorite thing about fall?

    It’s slowly starting to cool off here in Chicagoland, and there’s definitely a crispness in the air. We are just starting to think about fall decorating too. So far, we’ve just gotten a pumpkin from our park district (planning a post on our blog about that tomorrow, actually). Thanks for the Pinterest inspiration photos!

    I decorated for Fall at the beginning of September (I couldn’t wait!), but now I need to bust out the Halloween decor. This is the first year we’ll be getting trick or treaters so I want to really go all out!
