Me and Melissa.. Race for the Cure 2009
Since I am really excited about fall and so glad it is finally here I have gotten out a few things to put around the house. Nothing fancy.. I need some new decorations.. But thought I would share a few.
My fall wreath courtesy of Costco for like $20 bucks
How cute is he? Just got him to put on my console table in the hallway. He makes me smile.
My cute halloween bucket..yes, I'm a little early I know but we already have candy in it! I just can't resist. I also love the smell of pumpkin candles and I will be burning one soon and I can't wait to try a Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks. Everyone is raving about those and I have never had one. Are they really that good? So.. what are your favorite fall decorations? Would love to hear how you decorate. Don't you just love fall?

This song is amazing and I am in LOVE! I just keep listening over and over. We all have hard times and this song just puts it in perspective. Love this part:
"I know there will be days when life brings me pain but if that's what it takes to praise you, Jesus bring the rain." I will never look at the rain the same again. I hope this song speaks to you like it has to me. I always need a reminder that Gods hand is at work at all times! Matthew 6:34 says, "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

I think it turned out great! I used this site and it even came early. Since this is my first time to print my blog, I didn't really know what to expect. You can pick the color of the book, hardback or paperback. I just went with the paperback one..it was a little cheaper. You can pick your picture for the front and the back if you want or they will pick it for you. It has a table of contents with all my blog posts and all the pages are numberd. I think it's really neat! There are a few things that I don't really like.. the font on the front is really small. You can barely tell that it says The Haley's. And.. maybe that was something that I could have fixed and just didn't. Not sure. The other negative is the captions under my pictures. They printed in with the text and not under the picture where they belong. Not sure if I could have changed that either, but oh well. It just makes the text a little hard to read because there will occasionally be a caption thrown in there too. So, if you do use this site.. you may want to check those things out. Other than that, I am glad I did it and I can't wait to have more books.

On Thursday, I went to a couponing 101 class with Jenny from Southern Savers. It was helpful and overwhelming all at once. I am new to all this couponing stuff but my goal is to try to do better about saving money. If we can cut money in groceries, thats just more money for something else fun! So, we'll see how I do. Basically she does all the dirty work for you. You just go to her site and she will tell you all the good deals and you print off the coupons. The best way to save the most money is on the BOGO free items. If you use a store coupon with a manufactured coupon then you can really save the most money. It does make sense. I just hope I can do it. She saves over $400 a month on groceries and she does have 3 kiddos, so I am not counting on saving that much, but even a little bit would be nice. Wish me luck..I'll keep you posted.
In other news, the Auburn Tigers played Clemson last night and we WON!! Another nail biter game and OT but at least we won.. 27-24. A win is a win and I'm so glad we did it. I wish we could of been in AU, but we had a fun AU party at our house with friends and family. It was a lot of fun. Yummy food, football and friends.. can't get better than that! War Eagle!! I even made bakerella's famous cake pops.. I was really impressed with myself! I thought they turned out cute and they were delicious. Hubs grilled some yummy hamburger sliders and we had hashbrown casserole, and green bean bundles too!
All the sweets..

So.. how was your weekend? Our weekend was relaxing. I had a girls day on Saturday with my friend, Jan. It was so nice. We got pedicures, ate lunch, went shopping, went to see Switch, (very cute movie), and got yogurt at 32 degrees (yummy). We had a great day and I found some deals. So excited about my new pair of Joe capri jeans that I got for $22.00 regularly $198.00. Seriously, what a deal. I got 2 pair of shorts for $5.00 each and a purse for $11.00. I love to find a good deal, however, I am not a good coupon/thrifty shopper. But, I'm gonna start after my coupon class this week!
