Getting Ready for Fall

It's one of those rainy, cool, fall days. The type of day where you'd love to just crawl up with a book, next to the window, and relax. Unfortunatley, I'm at work but I'm still enjoying the weather. I love fall. I look forward to it every year. Especially October. I love Halloween, I love the autumn leaves, I love the crisp, cool air and the sound of the birds as they fly south for the winter. Yes, fall is a great season!

My mom and I are preparing the store for it's autumn changeover. We're getting rid of our summertime pastels and making way for the late year burnt oranges, chocolate browns (which is the new pink by the way), and deep greens; while decorating the store with corn stalks and pumpkins, all of which need to be carved in the next few weeks. Yes, my mom and I were busy girls today, as the store was rather slow. We strutted out in the rain, decked out in dress pants, and strolled through the local area pumpkin patch in search of a few pumpkins for our windows, and some corn stalks for display as well. Granted this was not a "balls-out" effort on our part. We prissily picked up each pumpkin, careful not to get mud on our nice work clothes, and held the corn stalks out in front of us as we walked them to the car. We laughed at the site we must be creating along the highway: two prissy girls, strutting around in the rain, looking for pumpkins, in their dress pants. Hey, it may not have been an "outdoorsy" event, but we got the job done and our windows will be ready for the weekly Thursday changeover!

In other news, the show that I've been planning has been cancelled which I'm both relieved and sad about. It was beginning to get to be an aweful lot of work, and my schedule just wasn't holding up! I now have more time to focus on the two fashion shows I'm planning which is great! I have a lot to do for the Lake Geneva show and I also just contacted Catholic Central High School today about producing a fashion show with them (they do one every year but we want to get in on the deal). I gave her my ideas which she loved so we're going to collaborate in a few weeks and see what we can come up with. I'm excited. I love this sort of thing. So I guess the extra time works out after all, although I'm just filling it up with MORE work. I can totally see myself as a workaholic someday.

Hello, saw you over at my buddy Chatty's. Besides allergies, Fall is my favorite. Especially now that I have kids. Nothing beat trik-or-treatin!
