Embracing the cold front

Last week in Austin we shed our 90+ temps for something a little closer to 70, and more rain than we've had since May. I took the cold front as a chance to break out the fall decor without feeling like a fake.

The candle rings were 50% off at Michael's, everything else was free :)

The coffee beans smell wonderful every time you walk upstairs, and they were a cheap filler.

The fabric leaves were an after season purchase last year and with a few glue dots, worked great on this flameless candle I had in my stash.

I spread a few more leaves on the lamp shade, just a few until I decide what I want to do, but it adds some color to the corner.

The front door needed something to replace the lime & cream daisy wreath, so I got busy on a design inspired by Living with Lindsay. Floral picks from Hob Lob, chipboard letter and scrapbook paper from my stash.

Six Word Saturday

I'm even in school on Saturday.

I have been going non-stop the past 2 weeks- full days of teaching, parent meetings, flu shots, a "quick" trip to Louisiana for some college football. And yet here it is the weekend and instead of garage sale shopping or sleeping in, I'm sitting in class. *sigh* Maybe soon.... maybe soon.

Six Word Saturday

Teachers have a wild side too.

After a short week at school, a couple of bottles of wine and some fabulous pepperoni dip, Bunco was just the right way to "unwind" last night. Much to the dismay of former student spotted lurking around the host house, teachers do indeed have a life outside of school.

P.S. Sorry I've been MIA this week, but I needed to shake the negativity surrounding the current school year. It's not rainbows and butterflies, but I think I'm gonna be ok.

Shake & Bake

My kitchen help may have found his future calling. I think the spin move really adds to the flavor :)

I think this may be the one.

I am a debbie downer. I admit it. It's exactly 9 days into the school year and I am ready to throw in the towel. I just don't know where I'm going to find the mental fortitude to plow through. This may just be the year that beats me.
