October Favorites

October 29, 2010

Happy Halloween weekend y’all!  Do you have a relaxing weekend planned or is your calendar packed with costume related events?  We happen to fall in the latter category, but the rain is putting a damper on all the festivities planned.  No worries, we’ll just trick-or-treat with our umbrellas and rain boots!

Meanwhile, here’s a few fun and inspirational links that inspired me this month, enjoy!

    I think that after that, the kids need to have a sugar-free month…!!

    Happy Halloween all the way from Australia!

  14. I’m loving this Oct. roundup of awesome fall ideas. :) Those desserts look so yummy! That bonfire o’ pumpkins is super creative. Melissa’s autumn walk is so pretty-love the colors. It reminds me of the fall season when I lived up North. Now I have to settle for a few acorns falling from our huge oak tree out front and 85 degree temps-different.

    I have been obsessed with cute nursery design this month, too! I am due in the spring and plan to fluff my nest and decorate for the new baby all winter. That isn’t perhaps your intention, too??? ;)
