Fall Decorating Favorites

Happy Friday, friends!! Heading into the weekend expecting some serious Fall weather & we are so excited about it!! I have been working on putting up some Fall decor around the house & wanted to round up a few of my favorites this season so far!

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven

one // Ok, I bought this wreath sometime in the Spring and have been so excited to get it put out for Fall, it is SO big & full, I love it so much!!! It would honestly be beautiful on a front door or anywhere inside the home, like hanging in front of a mirror or over the fireplace!

two // Give me all the festive coffee mugs! Love these super simple ones for all the coffee or caramel apple spice drinks all season long.

three // These were on my list last year & I am so excited that they brought them back! They’re such a fun way to add some Halloween touches around the house or outside, fill them with a battery operated candle or twinkle lights!

four // This spooky doormat is seriously cute and perfect for any front porch just in time for the trick or treaters. PS. It’s under $15!

five // One can never have too many twinkle lights to make every room feel super cozy!! Bonus, keep them up through the holidays for a few more months of magic!

six // More pumpkin decor, I love these also filled with twinkle lights, flicker candles or just by themselves.

seven // Obsessed with this copper color this year & love it on this linen lumbar pillow! Must have for our bed to bring all the cozy vibes!!

Hoping to share our Fall mantle & lots more peeks around our home over on Instagram over the next week or so! Have you guys decorated yet?!


Cozy Corner + August Plans

I’m so excited to be teaming up with our friends at Sixpenny today to show you a peek at our master bedroom & the coziest corner of our home! The girls are headed back to school this week which means my schedule just opened up for lots of down time & I plan to spend it right here!!

This is the Sixpenny Neva Chair, wide enough to fit all three girls comfortably & soft enough to make you never want to get up. We chose the cotton linen slipcover in pacific pearl & it is so dreamy! A literal cloud. I vowed to spend the first week of the girls being back in school sitting in this chair, flipping through old Fall magazines for inspiration & drinking coffee with Hocus Pocus on in the background.

Ten more things I am doing this month once the girls are officially all back in school:

1. I owe you a blog post on our master as soon as we finish painting the trim & hanging pictures.

2. Finish painting master bedroom trim & hang pictures.

3. Write our Fall bucket list!

4. Putting together a meal plan for the next few weeks dinners as well as making a few freeze ahead dishes. Dinner time legit kills me on busy weeknights, anyone else?

5. Closet overhaul! I am one of those people who hangs onto a million random things thinking “one day I’m going to need this for…” and/or assuming all things will be needed for a Halloween costume at some point. Our house has very little storage so the closet situation needs to be under control approximately yesterday.

6. Daily walks with my fave podcasts & a cup of coffee. I consider it a workout.

7. Sorting through the girls artwork! We have a drawer in our kitchen workstation area that the girls put artwork, crafts they make, notes they write, etc. and it is overflowing. We try to go through it every few months, but it is long overdue. Trying not to be a hoarder, but kids artwork is my weakness.

8. Finish adding plants to the backyard and shoot before & afters of our patio!

9. Stalk every store & online shop possible for early Halloween decor drops.

10. Bring more content here!! It’s been a minute since I have felt super inspired and creative with the blog, but it’s coming back to me and I’m here for it. And I hope you are too!!

Until then, if you need me, you know where I’ll be! 😉

Our Family Room + Summer Movie List

I’m so excited to finally share our before & after of our back family room. Since we moved in, we have given it quite a facelift, lots of paint, new cabinet doors, updating the fireplace & mantle, and lots of love by way of comfy furniture & the girls art supplies scattered everywhere at all times.

If you remember, here is what the room looked like when we moved in. Lots of dark wood & late 70s brick, this was an addition to the house around that time and was so dated.

And here is the room now!

SOURCES: Couch (purchased from a local design floor sample sale) // Ottoman // Large Polka Dot Pillows // Small Polka Dot Pillow // Desk & Chalkboard DIY // Floral Artwork by Hannah Joiner Crosby // Jute Rug

So what do we use this room for mostly? Movies!! So I thought I would share our Summer Movie Lineup of great 90s movies that are (for the most part) appropriate for kids. A few of them we haven’t rewatched yet, but from memory, we loved them as kids!!

Homeward Bound
Honey I Shrunk the Kids (and Honey We Shrunk Ourselves)
The Parent Trap
Marry Poppins
Little Rascals
Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory
Angels in the Outfield
Free Willy
Space Jam
Little Giants
Rookie of the Year
Man of the House
Mrs. Doubtfire (ok, this might not be age appropriate quite yet, but we might just have to watch it ourselves!)

Have you seen any/all of these?! What other great ones am I missing, would love to hear your faves!! Happy almost weekend, friends!! XO
