This weekend I had the pleasure of helping out my youngest sister (who is only 15) with Christmas mini sessions. We saw so many beautiful kids and families over the last two days. Obviously, I think my sister is so talented at such a young age but I hope everyone else will think so too. Here are a few of my personal favorites...

Since September has finally arrived, it is officially time to bring out the pumpkin. Pumpkin decor, pumpkin desserts, pumpkin candles, pumpkin pop tarts, pumpkin candy, etc. :) I love every form of pumpkin I have even taken a bite of, smelled or laid my eyes on. For my birthday I was given pumpkin spice cupcakes from Sugar Babies gourmet cupcakes, here in Windsor. They are so delicious! I also had "better than sex pumpkin cake" from my wonderful coworkers and a pumpkin dump cake made by my sister! I am officially FULL, but tomorrow brings a new day and more desserts. This is just another reason why this is my favorite time of year! If only the cool, crisp, fall weather would find us here in NC. I have already made plans to visit a farmers market in 3 weeks to get all of my pumpkins! This is just short look around my house right now...
Pumpkin crunch popcorn and pumpkin Hershey kisses
Bath and Body works (yes the same place that sells shower gel) Brownie Bites and Autumn Mix
Pumpkin Pie sauce and Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer
Things can only get better from here!! I can't wait to start decorating my house but I refuse to drag everything out of barn if it's still 90 degrees outside! We shall see what kind of weather next week holds! I hope you are having a fabulous start to September! I'm off to watch re-runs of "Sabrina, The teenage witch"!

I didn't actually forget about my blog, I have been trying to post for weeks but have had several delays. During the moving process I have lost and found many things. Last month after taking a few pictures of our home I realized I had misplaced my camera charger and was unable to upload or take any more pictures. After much searching last night, I FINALLY found it! So after weeks of waiting I can finally show you some pictures of our home. All of my "before" pictures are on a different camera so I will have to write about them later... you wont be missing much. We still have plenty of work to do but we have come so far and it's nice to finally be able to enjoy our home. Of course, you will seen my beloved Penny making her appearance in a few pictures!
Guest Bedroom (2)
Living Room (I spy an adorable dachshund)
Ceiling in Master bedroom (This will require an entire blog post)
Could she be any cuter? Holy moly.... LOVE
Minimal Fall decor in the living room (I'm going to wait ONE more week and then it's out of my hands) :)
Front Door and "foyer"
Dining Room with addition of plate wall
Although, there isn't one room in the entire house that I have actually completed, I'm so happy with the way things are moving along. I have tried to use a lot of decorative pieces that I already had, so I would like to update a lot of things in the future. We still have some molding and a couple of outlet plates to be completed but other than that the "construction" phase of the inside is FINISHED!! Now, on to the outside... when the weather gets cool enough to function out there (BRING ON THE FALL)! I hope everyone has a safe and WONDERFUL Labor Day weekend, it just so happens that my birthday falls on the holiday this year so I will be celebrating all weekend!! Bring on the festivities!
