Y'all are my Motivation!

OK y' I have told you all before, I am a SLACKER....


Fall is my absolute FAVORITE time of year! I love decorating for Halloween and Thanksgiving....and here it is, October 2nd, and I don't have a SINGLE fall decoration done!

I am ashamed.

So today, hubby had an unexpected day off work, and I decided to get my big ol' bootie in gear.

I started by plucking all of my DEAD plants out of all my planters and plant some gorgeous mums I bought this weekend.

Then, hubby and I swept and scrubbed and washed everything on the porch, including the planters, front door, siding, windows, columns and welcome mat.

It's all nice and clean!

A blank slate for fall decorating.

Now, I am posting this here, for all of you wonderful bloggie buddies to see, so I will be MOTIVATED to complete this task!

Wish me luck!

(And maybe kick my bootie into gear if I DON'T get it done!)


  1. good luck!!! so far it looks great!!!


  2. You will! It looks beautiful right now!

  4. Rock On !! I am starting mine as well so we can motivate each other together !!!!

  5. Good for you! The mums looks beautiful. Have I told you before how much I covet, er, love your porch? Can't wait to see what else you have up your sleeve. Kathy

  6. I can't wait to see what it looks like when you have it all "falled" out. I love your porch!

  7. Robin:

    It looks maybe I will do the same!


  8. What a pretty house. I gotta get those dead plants pulled and the planters stored until May. I hate the end of summer even though fall can be gorgeous!

  9. Can't wait to see what's next....!

  10. Shiny, pretty, crisp and clean! :D ALOT more motivation than I have. My mums are scheduled for placement in the ground (pots and all so they don't blow over) tomorrow. They've been bunched up outside the front door all week and the lawn and the beds look like....well, they look bad!
