Feeling Inspired

I woke up this morning having dreamed about decorating for Christmas! Really, you guys, this is what I dream of! Haha. Anyway, with the tropical storm approaching, our weather has cooled off and it's been very windy today, which has contributed to my feelings that fall is just around the corner! I decided that I would pull out a few fall decorations just to get us in the spirit. Thanksgiving is only 3 months away you know! I also had a small breakdown last night when I realized that my due date is 5 days after Thanksgiving. You see, we always buy a real tree, and the tree farms don't usually get the Spruce trees until the day after Thanksgiving. I was panicking that I may be too pregnant or in labor to get my tree! LoL. My best friends have assured me that they will decorate my house for me, which helped to calm my fears. I know this probably seems silly or trivial to many people, but this is my favorite time of year! So I settled for a little fall decorating today. I also ordered the cutest Pilgrim and Indian figurines for our table; I cannot wait until they arrive! I'm feeling so inspired!

Here's my cute little 'Harvest' sign that's on my kitchen table with some pumpkins and gourds around it.

This is our mantle in the living room. I put some sparkly fall leaf garland, my yummy orange candles, and the gourd and pumpkin candles. And don't you love my rustic letter P on the right side? It was a Christmas gift from my best friend, Cydnee. I LOVE it!

Here's our little arrangement at the bottom of the fireplace. It's just sparkly fall leaves with a cute little scarecrow that the boys insisted we buy. I think it turned out cute.

Tonight we are taking the boys to the Ringling Bros circus at the MS Coast Coliseum. I'm really excited! I'm charging my camera right now so I can be sure it's ready for all the pictures to come!
