Autumn Links to Love

Happy October!  This is probably my favorite month of the year.  It's always chock full of birthdays and cooler weather, bonfires and hot dogs, tent-pitching and dressing up, and generally trying to take it all in.  Here are some links I found over the weekend that will fit in perfectly over the coming weeks.

Some of these are laugh out loud funny and I can completely relate to every one of them.  Click over here to Tales From a Gypsy Mama to read the other eighty-five.

100 Ways You Know You’re a Mom
  1. You are pretty much embarrassment-proof.
  2. A trip to the grocery store alone is your idea of a spontaneous getaway.
  3. You buy enough milk on a weekly basis to sponsor an entire dairy farm.
  4. When you put on make up the kids get excited that you’re all going out.
  5. If you don’t change the toilet paper roll, it doesn’t get changed.
  6. You can’t remember what the words “personal space” mean.
  7. You use photo shop for removing boogers more than for removing blemishes.
  8. You wash the same load of laundry at least twice before you remember to empty it.
  9. You know the names of all of the teenage mutant ninja turtles.
  10. You consider Goldfish crackers a food group.

  11. You can’t remember a time when you didn’t drive a minivan.
  12. Lugging the baby carrier is your idea of a workout.
  13. You listen to your kids’ favorite tunes even when you’re driving by yourself.
  14. You have a love-hate relationship with The Wiggles.
  15. You can’t remember the last time you ate a meal while it was still hot.


Then, click over to this site to see some cute kids' crafts ideas for fall.  I love the pine cones hanging on the door and the colorful leaf art at the bottom left.


Doesn't this look like the perfect fall breakfast?  Yum!


There are lots of cute ideas here for the younger kids like fall window painting and an adorable owl family craft.


Now, if I was supermom I think I'd try my hand at this haunted house.  Amazing!


I'd love to have this hanging on the door, but considering how many times it gets opened and slammed shut during the course of a day, I'm not sure those mini pumpkins would survive very long.


What I really want is one of these.  All to myself.

Happy Fall, Y'all!
