Fess Up Friday - My Jogging Route

Hey Friends!


If you haven't noticed by now, I try to find the humor in just about ANYTHING! :-)

Why?

Well because we all go through really hard things in life and we have to make a conscious choice to be happy :-).....AND...... I like to laugh...yes, for those that know me, they are probably giggling right now about me saying that. ;-)

I will admit though, it's just a little sad when I can turn my daily jog into a fess up post. /-:
(What is wrong with me!?)  hee,hee

On my route yesterday I saw this newly planted tree.

YES, that "tree" looks as if it is secured by bike lock cables!



  Well my friends, it's about 24" tall.  This totally cracks me up.  IT'S - A -TWIG! And the landscaper put up their sign right next to it!





HAHAHAH!!  I love the: "Landscaping with TLC"  YES, MY FRIENDS, you will definitely need to provide plenty of TLC to any plant that they are planting for you or YOUR TWIGS WILL DIE.  (insert evil laugh)  I need at least a 12 footer for success.....just sayin.




With this next picture, I will admit I have jogged by it MANY weeks in a row before I stopped and took a picture.  Of course the ONE day I decide to take a picture the person's car was in the driveway and the garage door wide open.  You just KNOW if they caught me they'd be thinking "Oh, isn't she the nice neighbor, highlighting my stupidity"  (hee,hee)  No, it's just so funny, something I am SURE I would do.




All garden hoses should come with a WARNING: "Leaving garden hose out on an extremely hot day WILL kill your grass for a very long time".  Personally, I like it, it makes me smile.   I'm going to set up MY hose to spell my name all SWIRLY.




Sometime on my jog I take this sweet fella, but he's been having a few problems of his own......we'll leave it at that. He had to wear the "cone of shame" for a MONTH because he is as compulsive obsessive as myself and couldn't stop licking his owie!  And for those wondering, my OCD disorder is not licking any part of my body (Phew, just needed to clarify that!)  My obsessiveness is more like having to write a blog post the DAY (or day after) I take a picture, like writing this post now.....I guess it's a good problem to have.......sometimes :-)






All to say, I do enjoy finding humor in everyday occurrences......even jogging in my neighborhood on a beautiful Fall day. :-) :-)  They say, laughter is the best medicine.




Enjoy your WEEKEND my friends and don't forget to LAUGH!!

If you need more help in the laughter department, I just ran across this old Fess Up post that had me laughing so hard - ah, when my daughter is older she'll never forgive me - haha!

Simple and Easy Ideas on How to Decorate Your Pumpkins

Hey Friends :-)

I just had to share a few fun pumpkin ideas before October is behind us.  (It's really going FAST for me!)  

What a cozy fall look - I need to buy some mums and WHITE pumpkins for my porch! (ok, next year that is - ha!)



This is a GREAT (and easy) way to decorate your front porch pumpkins!  Just take strips of plaid fabric and wrap it around your pumpkins.  Add large wooden buttons to the middle and secure them with straight pins.  I love the large overflowing planters with mums - it just completes the look :-)


Good Housekeeping


Here are more decorating with button ideas - LOVE IT!



Pumpkin button art on burlap is a lot of fun.  You can see a button tutorial on my blog if you want more specifics.

Auntie lolo crafts



How about Candy Corn button art!
Repeat Crafter Me

And leave it to Martha.....a creepy pumpkin mice hotel :-)

Martha Stewart Living

I thought these GOURD DUCKS were fabulous!  She just used coat hanger wire to make little feet for the guys.  Could you see these all lined up on your front porch steps?  They totally make me smile :-)

Oh So Shabby

How easy would it be to decorate your pumpkins with upholstery tacks!  I love that idea! You can get upholstery tacks off eBay or even at your local fabric store.  


There you have it!  Just some fun Fall inspirations!

Do you decorate your front porch for Fall every year? What do you like to put on it?  

I stay pretty simple only because I'm a bit lazy and have to save my energy for Christmas - haha!



I do have a pretty cute dog though ;-)
