Change is in the Air

It's finally fall! By the end of August, I am itching for cooler weather and the smells and sounds of fall. To me, Labor Day weekend signals the final end of summer. Minus the fact that I live in South MS where the weather does not always change with the seasons as it should. We enjoyed two cooler mornings over the weekend, but the past couple of days we have been back to heat advisories of 102-105 degrees.

This time of year always puts me in a mood to change things. Redecorate my mantle, organize cluttered spaces, try new recipes, etc. I mentioned last week that I am organizing my office at the store. Let me just say, this is no small task. My office is the storehouse for all of the paper work that the store brings in and puts out. For those of you who don't know, my husband and I own a building supply and hardware store. Paper work multiplies quite rapidly every day. From invoices we owe, to invoices we've billed, to shipping tickets, to receipts, to faxes, to sales's quite an expansive list. I'm getting it all put away in boxes slowly but surely. Things are looking a lot better; it makes me feel more accomplished to work in a clutter-free zone.

Speaking of change, how do you like the new look of my blog? I owe a HUGE thank you to Ashley of The Happily Ever Afters of the Lancasters. Ashley and I went to highschool together, and I emailed her the other day to see if she'd be willing to help me spruce up my blog a little. She did an awesome job in no time! Go check out her blog! We share a love of Jesus, music, history and Christmas. I promise you'll love her. Also, grab my new blog button and stick it on your blog. If you have one I don't have, comment and let me know!

I also added a new playlist of music dedicated to Fall/Harvest/Thanksgiving. These selections are some of my favorite mellow, background songs for this season. Be sure to listen through it!

Today's a really busy day at the store. Tomorrow is the 10th so that means bill-paying time. Also, our stock truck comes today, so I'm going to help with that as much as I can. I will pick the boys up from school, hurry to get homework and dinner done, and then Jeffry will take them to football practice while I head to the church for worship team practice. Thursdays are so busy for us! Somewhere in the next two days, I have got to get the camper cleaned for tailgating Saturday and I need to shop for our tailgating food. Whew, how to squeeze it all in?


  1. Love the look of the new blog!! Super cute!

  2. LOVE the new look! Ashley did a great job. I'm TRYING to get my husband to sit down and help me get mine ready for fall. I figure fall is the time for change, and we're getting a new house, so we need a new blog look too, but he just doesn't see the importance in it, haha. You don't have my button, but I'm hoping to have a new one soon, so I'll post you a comment once I have the new look and button up!
