So, it really shouldn't surprise most of you that I decided to break out the decorations a little early this year. In years past I've attempted to be courteous to my roommates and refrained from putting anything up until the 1st of October, however this year I gave it a little earlier than usual as you can see.
I had been wanting to make a holiday wreath for a while, but wreath forms are far and few between, aka non-existant, here in Del Rio. So, as soon as I saw they had a handful for sale at Wal-Mart for fall decorations I jumped on the opportunity and went to work. I researched a little bit online and found a few great blogs that gave detailed instructions on how to make a tulle wreath! I was also shocked to find that Wal-Mart had Halloween themed tulle. As we don't have a Michaels, Hobby Lobby, or any crafts stores here this was very exciting ;)
Here is the main link I used with the tutorial if any of you want to make your own. I obviously did mine a little different since I used a straw wreath and added letters:

On another not, the hubs and I bought a tub of Ben and Jerry's the other night, something we rarely do as we will devour the entire thing in less than 2 days. Anyways, were were very adventurous (note the sarcasm) and tried a new flavor as opposed the always amazing half baked cookie dough and brownie batter! Let me tell you THIS STUFF IS AMAZING. Not only is it endorsed by the always hilarious Stephen Colbert but it's downright addictive...seriously go to the store right now and get it...I'm not kidding.
