Happy First Day of Fall Y’all! Today is the first day of fall & I am here for it! Fall is my favorite season – I love the the changing leaves, the family holidays, of course the sweaters. It’s also time for reflection on the year so far & a gearing up for the holiday season. Plus, there’s college football. I decorated for fall over the weekend, with lots of fall foliage & pumpkins scattered around. I still have a few items coming from Amazon, but the house is ready to entertain this weekend for the first LSU game of the season! My taste in decor, whether it’s permanent or seasonal, tends to be fairly traditional, so I used shades of orange, rust, & mustard to decorate.

We have been in our house for 7 years now & have been going through some redesigns lately. I’ll be sharing rooms here as we finish them. The entryway is an area that has been pretty much set since we moved in, with the exception of changing out smaller decor items. The entryway is the first thing that most people see, so we wanted the decor to fit in with the rest of our house. We also added some personal touches. Read on for my 4 tips on how to style an entryway!CONTINUE READING
Happy Friday! I can’t believe that Christmas is only 11 days away! I am horribly unprepared this year. I have just begun shopping, nothing is wrapped yet, & we have holiday parties almost every night. I only managed to get the inside of the house decorated, the outside decorations & lights are still in boxes in the living room. Does anyone else have years where nothing seems to come together? This is my favorite time of year & I’ve decided to just embrace the chaos & enjoy the time with friends, family, & co-workers.
We had our annual Rotary Holiday Potluck this week & I made my mother’s pumpkin bread for it. Pumpkin bread was a holiday staple around my house when I was growing up & I still love it when my mom makes a few extra loaves for me. This recipe easy to make (if I can make it, anyone can), travels well, & is always a hit at parties. You can’t beat that for a holiday recipe!
