Random thoughts on a sunny fall football morning:

1. Two weeks until my newest book launches. It’s called “10-Minute Decorating Ideas” and it’s all about easy simple decorating ideas for every single season.

In amazing news? So many of you have pre-ordered the book and I can never thank you enough for all the support. Pre-orders are so important for an author. It tells the world (and Amazon) that people are excited about the book which helps so much with the overall success of the book.

You can see the book here.

2. Is there anything better than fall and football? We just had our first local varsity football game. 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? This is the part of the season where everyone has a winning season. 🙂

3. One of my favorite vocabulary words is PLETHORA. Just drop it in conversation and smile.

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

5. I have a new puzzle game for us. It’s called “Woodoku” and it’s all about puzzle pieces. You try and twist them to fit into the blocks on the game.

You can search for it on the app store on your phone.

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

This yummy salad looks perfect for fall.

All of my favorite things in one bowl.

Sometimes simplest is best.

    Plethora is a great word and i actually use it often! However, I must say…when pronounced incorrectly it is a little “grating”🤣
