{BOO'ING our friends}

 I shared how we were BOO'd by Keri and her family recently on the blog. Well, Mason and I had been collecting little treats to BOO her family as well! We were going to drop it off on their porch, but then I thought of a better idea. We were going to be traveling with them in a couple weeks and there were so many fun things in there that could be used for entertaining during a long road trip! So, I planned on sneaking it into their truck during our first fuel stop!

Anyhow, here's what we included in their BOO bucket! 

{We were BOO'D}

 Yesterday I got a random text message from my best friend that said, "come to your front porch quickly and bring Mason" or something along the lines of that...

{We are going on a Disney Cruise!!!!}

 Sometime last week I got a text from my mother-in-law telling me to be sure to take off work the week after Christmas. I knew it was for a family vacation, but I wasn't sure where we were going. My mind immediately went to a cabin in the snowy mountains because we loved our trip in January so much. And we had talked about spending Christmas in a cabin before and how awesome that would be. Fast forward to Saturday evening when my in-laws invited everyone over for a dinner. I had a feeling they were going to announce the trip to everyone. 

The minute we got there and I saw balloons hiding under a bag, I figured it out! I knew where we were going...

{DIY round wood sign for the front porch}

 You may have noticed the "hello" sign in my post from yesterday about our fall porch. I have found a passion for making these round wood signs lately and had an idea for our front porch! 

{Fall 2021 porch}

 One of my favorite things about our home is our front porch! While I wish it was a wrap-around porch, I do love the space we have. I enjoy decorating our front porch with every season...especially fall and Christmas-time!! I kept it pretty simple this year, but I love it all the same. 

{Skull and Jenga Pumpkins DIY}

 I used to think Pinterest was dangerous (making me want to do all the things) but now Tik Tok has taken the cake! There are so many awesome crafts/diys on there! And, I love that there are so many Dollar Tree diys/crafts/hacks on there. Fun and inexpensive crafts are my jam! 

{Visiting NeNaw}

 Between traveling and quarantine, it had been a few weeks since we had seen Nate's Grandma. So we spent an afternoon at her assisted living, visiting. It was so great to hang out in the courtyard and spend time as a family. 

{Jeep Girl Mafia Meet}

 The stars aligned and I finally got to attend another Jeep Girl Mafia meet!!! It was on a Sunday evening at a town just down the road from us. I was so excited that we were able to go! 

{ECJ meet // Sept 2021}

 The first Thursday evening of every month is reserved for the Ellis County Jeep meet! We love getting together with our Jeep family for a night of eating and fellowship. For this particular meet, we went to Beef O Brady's in Midlothian. It was a great turnout! 

{Kickin' off fall with a Pumpkin Spice Latte}

 No matter what the calendar says or the temps read, Sept. 1st will always be the start to fall for me! I just love the "ber" months so much and can't wait to see what they bring for us! To kick off the start of fall, I got myself a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks!!
