Decorating Fun

I love an excuse to throw a party and decorate. The agent I work directly with is having a baby in a few weeks. We threw he and his wife a shower last week and I was I charge of decor. I loved having the pumpkin theme to use. 

The other ladies helped prepare the food and did a wonderful job. I enjoy throwing a party with good help. I hope there are more excuses for a shower or celebration at our office! 

I was so ready to decorate for fall at home. Henry and I took “old truck” to get hay, pumpkins and mums on the afternoon before fall officially rang in its fine self. We were set and ready to usher it on in! 
Here is a funny story: I picked Henry up from school in the “old truck” (which is actually newer than my car, but Henry has named it “old truck” because it was an old work truck Randall bought from his company to have to haul stuff around here. It is just a basic ole white Chevy pick up truck that smells like a mens locker room and sort of floats when you drive down the road. We listen to Sammy Kershaw and Joe Diffee’s greatest hits in it. It’s real clean and good redneck fun!) I don’t  drive it often, as you can imagine.  So, here I am waiting in carline at Valley View in my ole pickup truck listening to Sammy sing about a working woman’s holiday….and here comes Henry running out with his friends to stand in line, 6 cars ahead of me and he literally screamed with excitement while standing in carline when he spotted me. He was dancing and jumping up and down. I could hear him well through the music and half rolled down windows. His teacher had to rub his head and calm him down. He was excited beyond excited. I wanted to die right there in that truck. It was hilarious and most embarrassing as he yelled over and over, “that’s my old truck! My mamas in THE old truck!” If it was an antique, cool looking truck that would have been fine, but it’s not old and it’s certainly not cool. I’m literally laughing as I type this. Picture it and laugh with me. Here I am sandwiched between a new Range Rover and an a huge Infiniti SUV with this child screaming like he’s getting picked up in a Bentley. I love my humble baby! 😉 
So, tis the time of year to have excuses to decorate and drive “old truck”….it’s my favorite time of the year!!

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me! I am the co-author of a blog called Life with My Sister and have a podcast called Abby As-Is. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.
