Display Chain Tuesday....

Yes, I'm very late posting today's display chain, but I have a good reason.... It's  my 29th birthday(for the 10th time!!).

The theme that Misi of 1890 Gable House Musings came up with for today is "how do you prepare for this next season~ Autumn/Winter?".

So here is my chain....

I start preparing by decorating... which I am far from done, hardly have anything up yet, but I'm getting there...

 I stole this idea from pinterest. The one I saw used one long box. I didn't have that, but I did have 4 of the same wood boxes and I got the same effect :)

 I also gather my magazines together in places around the house for easy grabbing and reading.
 We take little road trips... it's fun to look at the beautiful scenery of changing leaves....
 Stopped here on our trip today, an old fashion drive in where they bring the food out to your car, best real chicken nuggets!
 And getting outdoors, playing soccer, riding bikes, just walking....nothing better than being outside in the cool air(I am NOT a hot weather person).
Hubby was very sweet today and took me to all the places I wanted to go.  It was a lovely birthday with sweet gifts, yummy cake and ice cream, and my most special gift came in the mail box.... a letter from Cameron(well, his drill instructor, but at least I have his address now and we can write him)!!!! It was the perfect timing for it to arrive.

With Love,

  11. Hello Tiff....visiting here from Misi's display chain...and liking what I'm seeing. (I didn't get to join in last week, but am an addict from days past....) I haven't even started fall decorating...and it my most favorite season....just too much going on this year, and not knowing if I get it up, whether I'll manage to get it down. So, I'm enjoying everyone else's efforts. Also read your last week's post for the chain - beautifully, yet poignantly, touching. Will keep your son in my prayers. (And I adore the little patriotic doll...GORGEOUS!) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
