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.

Happy Sunday!

How has your weekend been treating you?  This past week was our first brush with autumn, but we had a nice break yesterday with the best kind of fall weather:  sunny with a few clouds, comfortable temperatures, and even a just-short-of-brisk evening.  I’m curious if this week will be similar or if we’ll get more rain.  Stay warm!

How’s your weekend? We’re halfway to exhausted over here at Temptalia HQ! Shaun and I were married yesterday. Today, we’ll be hosting a wedding brunch for our guests at our home.  I’ll be sure to share a couple of photos once I have some to share :)
