Celebrating Fall!

Everyone celebrates Fall in their own way. Scarves, Ugg boots (not yet for me… its not cold enough!), Pumpkin Spice Lattes (Sorry I hate anything pumpkin. Gross.) As for me? I’m celebrating in the following ways:

I’m participating in Beantown Prepster’s Spooky Sugar swap! I LOVE Halloween, and when I saw this swap, I knew I had to join in. And then I ran to Target to start getting stuff together for it! (Cause I’m crazy.)

I also decorated our apartment door for Halloween, and made this wreath!!

Cute, no? Considering it took me all of 20 minutes, I don’t think it’s half bad. ๐Ÿ™‚

And here’s our apartment door/stairwell.

I’ve also been rocking the boots above like crazy! They are SO cute and SO comfy, AND they’re from Target!! (Thanks to La Petite Chic who blogged about the find!)

I also participated in Katie’s Scarf Swap! I received the below from my swap partner, and I loooooooooove it! You can never have enough black scarves, and I love how soft it is and the beautiful detail at the ends!

Also, off the lovely topic of fall, but important – Katie has posted about a charity that is close to her heart and I think you should head over to check it out. Her sister is a missionary, and she recently visited a Zambian Deaf School for children. While she was there, she discovered that the children slept on bunk beds, but the beds have no mattresses! Only wooden slats for them to sleep on. So, Katie and her sister are hosting a drive to buy 1 mattress for each child. Get this – the mattress only costs $35 per child! I donated, and I’m glad that I know at least one child will have a mattress for their bed. So please take a minute to check the post out and find out more about this great cause.

    I am epically stressed out about Halloween.

    I mean, not REALLY, but… I want a costume and some fun shit to do.

    And I don't want to dress as a slutty nurse. So Ricky's needs to stop with all their ads that are clearly aimed at wannabe whores.

    (Did I mention that I missed NYC, haha??)

  15. hey lacey–thanks for the shout out here (WE RAISED ALL THE MONEY!!!)—and also, thanks for participating in the swap. I love your scarf, I'm kinda jealous ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Fantastic Scarf… I just love seeing all the creativity from this! BTW – I'm not a crazy person I'm Katie's Sister-in-love and checking out all the people who posted their scarf! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  17. lacey, thanks so much for supporting the cause and donating to the mattress drive. all the funds were raised and the school is so excited! thanks for spreading the word! many blessings to you for your generosity!
