So, in my quest for a little flower bed in the back yard, I have come across a website that is extremely beneficial for people living in Southern California. It is a wonderful resource that tells you what you should/can be doing in this month of October to build and make your garden. There is a different web page for each month! Also, you can search by flower or plant to get tips and hints about the best flowers and plants to grow in California. It is SO COOL! Take a minute to check it out if you are curious about what you can be doing in your yard. Also, now is the time to do planting if you live in California. Many plants are planted in the fall..... so..... get going!

coming soon...

I have been doing some projects at home. Having the life of a substitute teacher, there are weeks where I don't work. This being one of them, I have had some time to do some projects at home. I have been working on my chalkboard, and it is turning out great! Also, I decided to tackle the backyard. So.... check back soon!

In the spirit of Fall, here are some things I'm dreaming of...

Thanks to BHG for the pictures

I'm planning a fall party in October and am so excited because I love this season! I grew up in a place where this was a common sight in the fall:

Anyways, these are some things I'm thinking we might have at our party:

Cute centerpieces are a must

Squash soup anyone?

While we're on the subject of food.... how about some pie?

I was thinking we'd have some autumn cookies - how about decorating them?

For entertainment, I was thinking we'd do some pumpkin carving.

One last picture that I just love...

French Fry

I know I haven't posted in a while, and I thought I would introduce you to our baby, French Fry. She is a one and a half year-old French Bulldog.

She has a lot of personality and loves people and most people love her!
She also likes to take naps and lay in the warm sun. (sorry if this is sounding like a personals ad!)

Last year for Halloween she was a cheerleader! Her outfit this year is just going to be awesome, so you'll have to come back in November to see what she was.

She is also a trouble maker, and when left alone for too long gets into things that she shouldn't. In this picture, she has torn apart a doggie bed.

I'll leave you with some cute pictures of her. Enjoy! (p.s. the red pillow in this first pillow was made by me!)
