I so wish I could describe my hubby adequately. Oh, you know, he is a hard worker, loving husband and father, good provider, etc. But he also has made my life very exciting. I never know what could happen from day to day. He says to me, I never promised you a rose garden, but I told you it wouldn't be boring!
I was surprised yesterday when he handed me a box of candy. We both are trying so hard to diet. But then I saw it was from M & M's. I love anything
M & M. So I opened it. I couldn't quite see what was on the orange little candies....oh, I see, Love you...oh.....our saying 1 Life, 1 Love....isn't that sweet?? mmmm, what is on the other one??? NO! It couldn't be
My picture! I could not stop laughing out of glee. I am immortalized on orange M & M's!!! He absolutely cannot top this one.

My favorite season is finally here officially! Even though I do not decorate country anymore, it just isn't out of my system completely. My little harvest stuffed dolls always "sneak" their way in the decorating. The "wired" pumpkins and the plate are from HL - Hobby Lobby!

To everyone who left a comment about my Annies, ok....I am keeping them! I am so glad you liked them too and understood why I like them so much. No, I did not make any of them. I probably could have, but uh, no.
Haven't seen my new grandpuppy yet. I will let you when I do. I will also try to get some pictures.
Went "looking" at our new HomeGoods. Yep, you heard me right. I JUST looked. With my trip and Christmas coming, I am trying so hard to behave. They sure have some yummy plates though! My husband reminds me that I don't NEED new plates just to do another Tablescape Tuesday!!
I haven't forgotten about my awards. I promise I will get to those lovely gifts to me. (To many I-s in this post...sorry..but then again it really is all about me!:)
I hope you all have a great and wonderful weekend enjoying your families, friends and worshipping. I always look forward to Sunday services and visiting with my church family.

Annie and Andy. I just love that pillow.
She is just so cute with her country star. I am sure you see why I can't part with her.
And my mini Ann and Andy. This are probably 20 years old or more. They are out all the time.
Have a great weekend and visiting all the other Show and Tells.

These little hand embroidered napkins I bought at an estate sale.
The little juice glass was also my MIL's. I found the tea bag holder at an estate sale also.

1. I do not like my food to touch one another. I really would like partitioned plates like they have for kids! I absolutely will not eat my dessert on my dinner plate...that is just gross!
2. I missed being Salutatorian in High School by less than a point!
3. I do not like roller coasters!
4. I was named after my grandmother.
5. I always want to win at table games...I can be very competitive.
6. I hate shepherd hook pierced earrings.
7. I really don't like wearing a watch. I do wear one occasionally, but I rather not.
Ok...here comes the hard part. I know a lot of you that I read have done this Tag. So if you have not and you are on my Blog Roll.....Tag you are it!!

I am a Happy Camper! It is Autumn!! I LOVE Autumn. I have been decorating my home all week. You see, I justify all my fall decorations because we can put it up in September and take down after Thanksgiving. That is 3 months...we have no other holiday that lasts that long!
So for Show and Tell at No Place Like Home, I am starting to show some of my decorations. Well, our decorations, because hubby has a part in it too!
Last year while visiting my friend Rose, we saw this Autumn tree. I took a picture of it and we did it ourselves in each of our homes. I KNOW Rose will post hers also. The picture really doesn't do it justice, it is really beautiful.
Close up of the tree.
Pumpkins everywhere in the Family room.
We never sit on this chair, so why not decorate it??
Ok, back to hubby. He went to Walgreens and came home and surprised me with these salt and pepper shakers. I am saving the pumpkins for my Thanksgiving table...the acorns I have on the table now.
Well, I hope you all are enjoying the coming of this wonderful season.
I won't be home all day Friday, but I promise I will get to your Show and Tell's. It really is my favorite day of the week!
By the way...just to tell you HOW much I do love the Fall...I am going to Michigan in October. If you want to see me...I'll be at the Cider Mill!!!
