Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

Falling in love with fall.

Hello ladies. I hope that you had a great weekend!

Saturday I was supposed to clean the house like a mad woman but decided that watching the game with my mom was a better idea. When we decided to turn off the game, if I saw one more fumble I was going to scream, we chatted about the up coming holidays and can I say I am so PUMPED!

This is my favorite time of year. The changing of the leaves, the sweater wearing, hot chocolate sipping, family time, anticipating Christmas.

The hubs and I had some money left over on a gift card for Kohls and I decided that we needed a little fall in our lives... so My mom and I went to Kohls and found the most amazing table set up for my November Dinner! I am so is very Better Homes and Gardens. I picked out a burnt orange, green, red and yellow plaid place mat with a matching solid green napkin. The napkins are being held by a ring of fall leaves with a twine bow. I decided for presentation sake to use my gold chargers that we got as a wedding present before we brake out out good china we also got.

Then came the centerpiece, I didn't know what I wanted to do. Our table is kind of small, so that kind of limits my options. Should I do a real pumpkin? A filled glass hurricane? Then my mom found the perfect item for my centerpiece, a cute ceramic pumpkin. It isn't to big and I can use it year after year! Kids this looks totally awesome and I am in decorating mode now.I think this Friday I am going to make a wreath for the front door and carve my pumpkin. But Seriously, it took everything I had to not raid the Christmas section, they some awesome decorations this year... some of which will be in my home soon.

This is my first holiday season with my Husband, and it is his first without his family. In my family if you have anything like thanksgiving around it my dad and step mom get mad, if you don't spend all day there they get mad, if you ask to make something they get mad, if you leave before the grandparents they get mad. Sometimes it becomes a fight to see who gets who at there thanksgiving. So I am not having thanksgiving, I am having a November dinner...

It will be a little get to together where I can entertain family, use my culinary skills and get to use all my new cookware, tableware and serve ware I got from the wedding. It is also a chance for hubs and I to start our own traditions which is very exciting.

Have a lovely day all!
