Attempts at Craftiness, Rory Eve, Travel

Happy Fall, Y’all!

Its officially been Fall for a week or so, but this weekend officially FELT like fall! Rory started feeling better on Friday morning so after canceling our trip to Dallas we rebooked it and headed out of town Friday afternoon. What a much needed getaway! We shopped, relaxed, spent endless time together, and had a wonderful time. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to get away for a weekend and get rejuvenated!

On Saturday we went to the Dallas Arboretum because they have a huge pumpkin “village” and patch there, so we wanted to take some pictures of Rory. Seriously every family from Dallas, etc, were there! ha! But we got some great pictures.

I took this one for Lauren– check out her fairytale series by clicking her name!

and here is a glimpse of the chaos and many, many people in the pumpkin village

Here is a sneak peek of her fall photos.

We also got a great family photo taken!

I’ve been inspired by the weather and by several friends like Amber and other blogs I love to decorate and spruce up for fall. So I made a trip to Hobby Lobby this morning and got some things that I can use over and over every year. I didn’t do much, and I didn’t spend much at all, but enough to make it look like fall in our home.

We also went to IKEA over the weekend and I finally got some pillows for our couch that I really like- plus they tie into our kitchen/dining room! (And the pups are making their way into the blog! They were so excited to be back home from the kennel today!)

And here are some pictures of our dining room now that its complete! I also added a touch of fall in here with the centerpiece I made last year. I don’t think I’ve put up pictures since we got more artwork in here. Also, I wanted to put in a picture of the chair we re-stained and recovered last year. They look really great in our new kitchen!

Whew! This was a long post! Sorry y’all, I just had so many things I wanted to share!

My parents are coming on Wednesday and I just CANNOT wait! Hope everyone has a great week!

  1. I love the color of the dining room. It is so pretty! You did a good joy. Love the fall pic of Rory. Can’t believe she is so big. Enjoy the time with your folks. Btw, blow up and print some of your beautiful pumpkin photos and hang them for fall.
    They will be good all way through Thanksgiving. Keep the frames and change the pics for each season! Just a thought.

  2. Love, love it!!!!!!!!!!! Absolutely love the big acorn, I’ve decorated outside but now you have inspired me to do the inside. Rory just is adorable. Your mother has orders to give her little cheeks kisses from me!

  3. Everything looks great! And, love the pumpkin patch pictures…it looks beautiful there, and a pretty little girl to fit the scene!!

  4. I really like those giant acorns! Hmmm, might have to make a trek to Hobby Lobby. One of the girls from Blonde Designs was at the Dallas Arboretum this weekend too. Funny! It looks like a really cool place.

  5. Love the pics at the pumpkin patch and cant wait to see more with Rory. Your house looks ready for a party or get together. So just let us know what to bring. 🙂

  6. I wanted to tell you that the picture of your sleeping baby was so sweet but then I scrolled down further and saw your Jack Russells! Love them! The one with the longer coat looks like one of mine! All of your babies are cute!

I love hearing from y'all! Leave a comment below!
