fall decorating

I'm not big on summer. I hate being hot and sweaty. I prefer the cooler months. I love wearing sweaters, lying underneath a cozy blanket, and, uh, not being hot. ;)

I know it doesn't officially become Autumn until mid-September, but I couldn't wait to put up some fall decorations. I only put two things up, but there was one thing I wanted to show you. My homemade wreath!
Isn't it CUTE!? I think I did a pretty good job for it being my first wreath. All I did was grab some garland and wrap it around a metal coat hanger!! So easy. After that I tied it to my wreath hanger ($.50 yard sale find, btw) with some metal wire, and that was it. =)
Here's another view with my little model!

Am I the only one who is glad summer is coming to an end? Sometimes I forget I live in Florida, it really never does get freezing cold (what I miss) here. *sigh*

Idk if it's being pregnant or what, but it's been feeling like fall here in KY and I swear I LOVE IT so much!! I can't wait for it to get even cooler so we can enjoy hot tea or cocoa on the back porch!!

I am so ready for fall. I thought it felt great yesterday when it was 85 instead of 97! Ha!

Great job on the wreath! And no you are not alone! I am so ready for fall. =) Not to rub it in but it's been in the 70's here so I've had the windows open all week...

So, you say you miss snuggling under warm blankets, but I know that you "can't breathe" if you're under a heavy blanket -- did you forget about that because it's been so long since you've been around cold weather?! :P
