Is it Fall already?

Wow tomorrow will be October 1st! Where has the time gone?? I remember when I was younger, the days, months and years would pass so slowly. I would always hear my older family members say "The days and weeks just fly by" I would mumble under my breath " I guess you haven't just spend the WHOLE day at school with double math...."

Little did I know years down the line I would be repeating the same words they did on a weekly basis! Weeks fly by, weekends even faster. But now I am seeing the seasons fly by, with of course the exception of winter which seems to last for 10 months of the year!

I used to think that summer was my favorite season, the BBQ's, the swimming, the late setting sun. But now, I think this is the first year that I have accepted that I truly love Fall. I love the sweater weather, the late night fires, the crispy sounding leaves. I really do love it all.

I really want to take the time to appreciate fall this year, take lots of family pictures, do some cute crafts like the cute little bird feeder P and I made last week.

This afternoon we will be making some special birthday cookies for Daddy's birthday too.

I hope I keep true to that, with life so busy it is sometimes so hard to find time to step back and enjoy the moments. But if I don't do it who will! Stay tuned to see all my awesome fall stuff this month!

Oh and I will also be featuring some great reviews and hosting some fun giveaways! There is one ending today on my Facebook page! Check it out!

Now that I have you thinking, what is your favorite season and why?

Busy! Busy! Busy! And a Giveaway!!!

With back to school in full swing, we are trying really hard to get our routine back into play.
A summer full of staying up late and sleeping in, is no longer our reality. This Mama is back to waking up at 6 am, and I have to say I am not a fan!
Although my dream of getting up at 6 to do some Yoga, shower and get ready before my little guy is up, is always in the back of my mind. It hasn't happened yet!
I usually sit here with my giant mug of coffee and yawn.....
I'll get there eventually!

We have also been potty training my 3 year old son. I really thought it was going to be a difficult task, but to my surprise he really caught on! He tells me when he has to go now and wears big boy undies all day long! We are still working on nap time and bedtime, so I am wondering if anyone out there has any suggestions for training him at night? He usually has a half a cup of milk before bed, and I am thinking I should probably try to eliminate liquids as much as possible after supper.

And last but not least, I have been starting to prep my Christmas lists! I know some of you will think I am crazy, but getting a head start is the best thing to do! I will be using the new e-book from, called 100 days to Christmas. It is a great book, with lots of tips and ideas for making your holidays organized and enjoyable! It is filled with lots of lists, in fact her site has more lists and planners then I can even tell you. It truly is a control freaks dream! The first 30 days are free to try and after that it costs only 5$ a month! I have a link to the Christmas e-book in the top right hand corner of this blog as well! Just click the picture of the book!

The first day of the 100 Days to Christmas e-book starts on September 16th, and I am ready! And the best news is that by commenting below and telling me what the most hectic part of the holidays are for you and your family, you can win your very own copy of 100 days of Christmas! I will draw a name at random on September 16th! Make sure you are a follower of my blog, have "liked" my Facebook page and bonus points if you follow me on Twitter!
