The weather has finally cooled in Nevada. Our neighborhood pool closed for the season. The busy season of Thanksgiving and Christmas are about the begin.

Cooper and I are headed to Chicago this month to visit with Sloan and celebrate Coop’s 5th birthday. (I’m also hoping for a Cubs game too, fingers crossed.) With each month that passes Nevada becomes more like home but it does not make me miss Chicago any less. This home tour doesn’t help.

Not only do I spring clean I also fall, winter and summer clean. I feel like with the beginning of each season its a good time to take a look at what can be donated, what needs to be fixed, what needs to be organized and what needs to be bought. My biggest goal is to finish the main level of our house. Or at least get to a stopping point for awhile.

I like new candles with each season. I’m not a fan of pumpkin spice (when it comes to candles) so I tend to go with something like this for both fall and winter.


Festive Fir – Target

A new season means a few new pieces for my closet too. I’m not a big clothes person. I stick with neutrals mostly but like to buy a piece or two each season to keep it fun and fresh.


I have my eyes on a pair of mules and a pair of cutout booties now that I live in Nevada and it doesn’t snow!

Here are some October goals I thought I’d share with you. (Ok so I’m held accountable!)

Finish painting the living room/kitchen.

Work on my One Room Challenge. I’m working on the office. Let’s say it looks like a bomb went off in it currently.

Plan Cooper’s 5th birthday party.


(Puppy party!)

Sell items currently in garage and use $$ towards office space.

Clean up front yard. I’ve already brought in my succulents that did awesome this year! Yea dry weather!

Finish up ebook. Can’t wait to share it with everyone!

I’ll let you know how my plans go!  Do you make plans each month? Do you have anything you do prepare for fall? Thank you so much for following along. Like always I post way more over on instagram so make sure to follow along!

    1. Hey! I know this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
      Does building a well-established website such as yours require a
      massive amount work? I’m completely new to operating a blog however
      I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to
      share my experience and views online. Please let me know if
      you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
      Appreciate it!

    1. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured
      I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?
      My blog covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit
      from each other. If you might be interested feel free to
      shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!

      Superb blog by the way!

    1. This design is wicked! You certainly know how to keep a reader
      entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job.

    1. Wow, wonderful blog layout! How long have you been blogging for?
      you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your web site is
      magnificent, let alone the content!

    1. Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one
      and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you reduce it,
      any plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any help
      is very much appreciated.
