Random thoughts on a sunny fall football morning:

1. Is there anything better than fall and football? Here we have high school football on Friday and then college football on Saturday and then the Cowboys on Sunday.

And since we are just starting?

Everyone is having a winning season. πŸ™‚

2. One of my favorite vocabulary words is MYRIAD. Just drop it in conversation and smile.

3. If you like Wordle? Have you tried Quordle? It’s four Wordles all at the same time.

4. It was a great week on the blog. Here’s what we chatted about:

  1. The final step in our house renovation
  2. 11 pumpkin decorating ideas
  3. 21 budget fall wreaths
  4. How to stencil furniture in 10 minutes

5. We are driving to Waco this morning (again πŸ™‚ for Parent’s Weekend and I get to see those sweet daughters of mine. We are eating and shopping and laughing and catching up on all the stories.

I’m here for all of it.

And now? Here are some of my favorite ideas and inspirations I found for us this week.

    Hey! I do Wordle, Quordle and if I'm feeling really smart I try to do Octordle (8 at a time). Octordle is easier to do on a computer than a phone.

    Um, you must not have watched the Cowboys play on Sunday. Our qb is out, AGAIN, for 6-8 weeks! Not a winning season at all!!😒

    Good morning sunshine. It is a beautiful fall like day here in N.C. Going to do some more porch decorating today and spend as much time outside as possible. Love the ideas for keeping my inside autumn decor simple this year. I am trying to stop thinking I have to use everything if I have it in my fall bins. So far so good and I'm loving it. Enjoy your weekend with your family and 🏈.

    We love Wordle! My husband and I have a healthy competition going on everyday. Quordle is amazing! I got all four today!! WHAT! ANNTN says there's Octordle! πŸ˜ƒ I'm keeping things simple for fall, as well. I found the coolest small , real pumpkins at TJs that look like copper patina! The French tour home link doesn't seem to be working. I'd love to see that when you get a chance. I know you're busy. Have a great weekend with your girls!!

    I also noticed that the French-inspired home tour link isn't working. So many fun links to see today. I love the seeking lavender lane home--it's perfection! And yes, I do Wordle most days but I really prefer the Mini crossword by the NYT as well as Tiles. Have you tried jigsawplanet.com? When I need to unwind, that's a perfect activity--and I don't have to worry about losing puzzle pieces!

    Hi KariAnne, love the stick pumpkin! Definitely copying your idea. I was wondering if you remember where you got the pretty β€œleave” bowl you have displayed with it? I hope your having a great weekend with your girls!
