I feel like I may be pushing the seasons a bit this year but I am SO ready for Fall!  The weather, the clothes, the food, the holidays...bring it on!  I have lots to be excited about and thankful for this year, and I really can't wait to celebrate!  I was up in the attic looking for Ellie's high chair so Don could get it put together and came across my fall decorations so I went ahead and brought them down.  They are sitting in a pile waiting to be put out!

This may sound silly, but I have looked forward to seasons changing even more since Ellie was born simply because of all of the cute outfits she has waiting on her.  When it comes to buying clothes for her, I will admit I can go a little crazy.  But I NEVER buy anything full price.  I love a good bargain and mainly shop for myself at TJ Maxx and Target and occasionally Macy's.  These days I'd much rather spend my money on clothes for her.  Some of my favorite brands of "fancy" kids clothes are Mom and MeBailey Boys, the classic Feltman Bros.,  Lollypop Kids, Remember Nguyen, Kelly's Kids, Zuccini, and Strasburg Children to name a few.

These are just a few of the things for Fall that I have been stocking up on.  They are all from Remember Nguyen's clearance section except for the navy cheerleader dress and it is from Lollypop Kids.  I think I paid $12 for the smocked turkey jumper!!!

(Just a note, most of her clothes are Carter's, Gymboree, Target or Wal-Mart comfy stuff.  She does dress up for MDO, certain outings, and church but when we are at home, she is in her "soft clothes"!)

I am in love with this t-shirt De De bought at a Jewelry Show a couple of weeks ago.  I found some black leggings at Wal-Mart for $3 to go with them.  Now all she needs is an orange bow!

Mrs. Marilyn (our monogram/applique lady) is also working on a few casual Fall and Christmas tops.  Oh, Christmas...I can hardly wait!  She might just have a different outfit for everyday of the week!  I am kidding...maybe:)

What about these fake baby "Uggs"?  Oh the cuteness!  TJ Maxx...$6!  I can totally see her sportin' these at a football game after it cools off.  Hurry up fall weather!

In other news...I bought Ellie some Baby Mum Mum's at Target yesterday and let her try them out.  I got the banana flavor and I really think she liked it!  She also had Gerber Oatmeal and enjoyed that with her fruit this morning.
(This is a Mom & Me dress from a shop here...Spoil Me Rotten)

And what is Fall without a Halloween costume?  We probably won't be trick or treating this year, but you better believe she will be dressed up:)  I should leave this is as a surprise but I can't wait!
