Happy September 2nd (and Labor day!)

Finally!  September!  Today starts my favorite season ever.  Fall! I am so sorry to all of you summer lovers, but I am happy to see it go.  Perhaps it is because I live in Tucson...summer here is ridiculous.  There is nothing nice about it.  100+ degree heat, every day, really makes a girl get sick of the warm weather fast!  Even when I lived in San Diego, I didn't dig summer time (I know, you are all thinking about sand and beaches and now thinking I am totally crazy!)  Even in San Diego, the beaches were crowded in the summer, there were people everywhere for vacation, it just wasn't my scene.  I found myself completely avoiding the ocean in the summer time- mostly because I hate crowds!  I digress...

I took this as a sign that it is time for Halloween.
Our first tarantula came to visit.  Yep, it's time for Halloween!

Today I am putting up all of my fall and Halloween decorations.  I know- Halloween is still 2 months away, but there is something so fun about decorating for it! (and planning for Ledoux's costume!) The thought of fall reminds my of playing in leaf piles, cold weather, sweaters, pumpkin beer... ahhh!  So, although I live in Tucson, I am going to do my best to re-create that fall weather.  Minus the leaves. and the cold weather.  All I have is cactus.  humph.  I have taking all sorts of ideas from pinterest, and am excited to decorate! Rather than go all out, I am opting for more subtle decorations that can be Halloween, but also used for Thanksgiving and fall in general (multi purpose!) Ledoux and I will be making a trip to Homegoods later today to get more awesome decorations, but this is what we have done so far!

And with that, I am off to do some more shopping (Labor day sales!!) and enjoy this day of no working! Happy Labor day, and September 2nd!
