Well we are feeling pretty fancy in our pants right now because one of our DIYs was featured in the holiday edition of All You Magazine. We feel so honored that our little sparkle lanterns were selected. I think the part that we like the most is that they made the picture of the DIY large and our faces nice and small. Just how we like them. Pretty exciting right?

For the Love of Friday- Well Read
Friday, November 8, 2013
While the majority of my yearly reading usually happens in the summer, fall and winter are definitely my favorite times of the year to read. As it starts to get cooler outside and the darkness makes an earlier appearance (a little too early for my liking lately), I experience less guilt dedicating longer periods of time to reading instead of going out into the world and being active. Since I am always looking for new book ideas, I thought I would share some of the ones that I have read recently and what is on my future reading list. Then maybe you will share some of your picks with us. Pretty please, with pumpkin cupcakes on top.
All of the books on my finished list I highly recommend with the exception of The Peach Keeper which wasn’t a winner in my book but still tolerable. The Halloween Tree was my Halloween book this year and I am glad I read it but don’t feel the need to read it again. It is a children’s book and would be good for a young adult (or adult) for October reading. Little Bee and The Fault in Our Stars were probably my favorite but Tell The Wolves I’m Home is completely wonderful as well. All of these are quite sad, however. Just a warning. Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore is a great book for bibliophiles who also appreciate technology. I discussed the Sarah Addison Allen books in this post.
Okay, your turn. What have y’all read recently that you do or don’t recommend? And what is on your “to read” list?
Happy Friday, friends!!

Since our party is not at my house this year for the first time, I took the opportunity to relax a bit in my own Halloween decorating. I may still do some more as October goes on or I may be so busy decorating Colleen’s house for the party that I just leave it be. Either way, I thought it would be fun to show you guys some of my interior decorations to get us all in the mood for the first spooky weekend in October.
I am a big fan of the floating witch hat idea which I stole from Mrs. Limestone.
(just ignore where my cats have scratched the chair there)
Also please ignore all the little fingerprints scattered on mirrors throughout. Mirror cleaning is apparently not my strong suit.
This is a pretty exciting weekend for me because tonight I am going to pick out my pumpkins and then Saturday night we are going to a haunted trail and corn maze. Very festive all around. I hope you guys have something wonderful planned as well! Happy first weekend in October!
