Happy Sunday!

Are you all shopped out yet? I’ve picked up most of my Christmas gifts for the year, though there are a few I’m hoping to snag a deal on come Cyber Monday.  The hardest part about shopping early is having to keep everything a secret for the next month! Ahh!

Happy Sunday!

How has your weekend been treating you thus far?  It’s been a rather gloomy, rainy weekend here, but I’ve managed not to succumb to the cold weather entirely (I’m so much more productive when it’s sunny out).  I also managed to bathe Mellan yesterday morning, so I’ve been able to enjoy a clean, extra-soft puppy all weekend.  I can’t decide if he loves or hates bath time.  As soon as he hears the shower turn on, he races there, jumps into the tub, but he doesn’t seem to have a whole lot of fun in there.  He usually just sits there until it’s over, then I close the glass doors and tell him to “dry,” so he’ll shake off excess water. (I’d say “shake” but he will raise his paw to shake your hand!)

Happy Sunday!

I’m really excited about today, because we’re going to be shopping for holiday decorations and ornaments.  We picked up our (artificial) tree yesterday at Lowe’s, but I figured I could wait at least another day to build it since we don’t have anything to decorate it with yet!

Happy Sunday!

How’s your weekend been so far?  Are you enjoying the extra hour?  I always try to use the extra hour as a way to get up earlier, because, inevitably, I stay up too late, wake up later, and then that becomes the routine.  This has always been a great way for me to jumpstart that earlier routine without much work!

From Edgy to Creepy to Transformative, Get Ready for Halloween!

In case you’re still not sure what you’re doing for Halloween, here are a few videos to give you some inspiration! Or, if you’re like me, just some masterful videos to enjoy. I love seeing the techniques people employ in such time-intensive looks like these.  This post is in the spirit of Sunday’s Link Love, so I invite you to share the love and share a link to your favorite Halloween tutorials (that are not your own).

P.S. — Stay safe if you’re being affected by the storm! <3

Happy Sunday!

What’s happening in your neck of the woods this weekend?  I can’t believe Halloween is just around the corner.  We’re kind of excited, because it’s the first year we’ll actually have trick-or-treaters!  We’re still trying to figure out how to decorate the front yard.
