Happy Fall, Y'all!

It doesn't take much for me to get into the fall spirit, but now that the leaves are officially starting to change and I have such a lovely front porch, I figured some decor was in order.




A quick trip to Trader Joe's for some pumpkins and Home Depot for mums, hay and an awesome deal on that fall plant ($10 marked down from $25), and voila!

In other news, the Gators are still #1! Matt got up at 6 on Saturday to start smoking the pork butt, and by the time I roused from my slumber at 10, he'd already done a ton of work around the house. I am a lucky lady! We had a great time watching the game with our friends, but it was gut wrenching. I made my classic salsa and guacamole, cole slaw and some cookies... okay, I didn't so much make them as I decorated them, but I just didn't have time to do them from scratch.

Not my best decorating job, but whatev. Everyone thought they were pretty. :)

So, Matt and I have plans to do some work in the half bath this weekend. We're going to change out the faucet, light fixture, outlets/switches and paint. I casually mentioned that I'd like to re-tile the floor, because I'm not a huge fan of the tile, but I really didn't want to get that involved. Well, I guess Matt only heard the first part, because now we have grand plans of new tile in the bathroom. He says it's practice for the other two bathrooms that need new tile. Considering we haven't even picked out tile, I don't know if we'll really do it this weekend, but it really shouldn't take too long because it is so small. We'll see!

Update: Well, I stand corrected. We are not tiling this weekend (thank goodness) but will attempt it at some point in the future before the major tilework for our bathroom and the upstairs bathroom. :)
