Fab Fall Weekend

This weekend here in Texas has been AMAZING! The weather has been in the 50's and 60's, it's been overcast and WONDERFUL! Reminds me of living on the Central Coast of California (which I miss... A LOT).

With the crisp cool air and it being the first time pulled out a sweatshirt and pants, I got that warm fuzzy fall feeling, and decided I wanted to decorate the outside of my house for Halloween. Being all of my halloween decorations are in storage and the storage is about an hour and a half away, I decided to head to Target, and bought everything I needed to decorate my front porch for under $12!



I bought a shower curtain (the cheapo plastic kind) and used black duck tape to create a spider web mat for our front porch. It's super easy to do.

Start in the center and work your way to the outer corners (it's easier).

Then I got some of that spiderweb in a bag and decorated the door, window and pillars infront of our place, and bought 3 spiders ($1 each).










The dogs came out to check out all of the festiveness that was going on out front.... trying to get them to sit for a photo is almost as hard as getting a youngin to sit still and pose! HA!

Sammy and Pudge love the Spider Mat:

FOCUS SAMMY, look at the camera!


Sammy was a cake walk compared to Pudge. Focus boy, focus. HA!



I didn't want to buy anything to decorate the inside due to the fact that I do have some fun things packed away so I just picked up these little owl candles holders and towels from the dollar section at Target.

Me too! I LOVE the dollar bins. They are always full of things for cute little touches around the home. I almost bought a cute ceramic bat candy dish from that section... but then I decided I don't have any holiday boxes here to store it in.
