I did a little decorating today!
But, first, let’s talk about some eats!
Apparently, I’m on a yogurt kick lately””but not Greek yogurt like everyone else is eating (right? Do people still eat regular yogurt?) I’m loving straight-up, non-fat Stonyfield yogurt, and I can’t get enough of it lately.
When I woke up this morning, I ate a container of blueberry yogurt with vanilla Chex, sliced banana, and fresh raspberries.
A couple of hours later, I ate another container of yogurt (this time peach mango) with fresh raspberries. So delicious!
Ok, now onto the decorating!
So, the other day, Mal sort of got on my case about decorating the house””in a joking way, of course, but he still made it known he wished there were some fall decorations around our house.
Mal is a decent decorator, but I don’t always love what he buys, so he leaves this task to me, which is totally cool because I typically enjoy it. It’s just been a busy fall and not a top priority for me, so I haven’t gotten around to it. Long story short, Mal said something along the lines of “you don’t love our house” (because it wasn’t decorated for fall), which made me feel bad for slacking on my decorating duties. Of course, Mal said it all sad and dramatic to me, so I decided to go shopping today for some decorations. Way to guilt me into decorating our house, Mal. Jeez.
Ok, Mal was right. Our house needed some fall love in a major way. I mean, check out my decorating efforts so far (it’s okay, you can laugh):
Obviously, I was all over the decorating this year!
Oh, wait, I hung a fall wreath over the fireplace mantel too. Clearly, I’m a decorating goddess.
So, off to Marshalls I went this morning. I bought a whole cart full of decorations and then headed home to test them out.
Most of them I liked, but I decided to return a couple of things and then go to HomeGoods to finish the project.
Unfortunately, things didn’t work out at HomeGoods because there was Christmas stuff everywhere!
Everywhere! Hello, it’s not even November 1st yet. We still have Halloween and Thanksgiving to celebrate. People still need fall decorations!
Anyway, I hit up Target and Michaels too, but I didn’t have any luck finding cute fall dÃ©cor there either. Although, I found mugs with little cable-knit sweaters (adorable).
And a “no tweeting while we’re eating” stuffed turkey that made me smile. Thanksgiving dinner is a no phone zone!
Ok, ready for the final product?
BEFORE (just in case you forgot about my amazing decorating skills):
Quite the improvement, right? I hope Mal likes it!
