It is fall, right?

I'm not sure how this month snuck up on me and is now almost over. Although September in West Texas doesn't necessarily mean it is getting any cooler it does mean that my hubby is off in the woods hunting for weeks on end. So that means I bust out all my fall decor and dive into my favorite season. I changed it up a little this year and went kind of simple. No orange and red garlands everywhere or elaborate place settings on the table. Just lots of pumpkins and antlers {or more antlers I should say}.  

I think my favorite spot this autumn is going to be my front porch. I have been spending almost every rainy morning the last week here reading and drinking lots of decaf coffee. By the way, if you haven't ready Crash the Chatterbox grab a copy ASAP!

Tuesday Tidbit

So some exciting news… we brought a new line of jewelry into the store! That may seem slightly mundane but this isn't just any jewelry. It's not only handmade and totally cool.  It's not just that every time a wear a piece from this girl people are all over it and asking if I have it in the store and where in the world this fabulousness came from. It's that my best friend of 25 years is making it. Y'all, she has been uber talented since forever and she is finally sharing with the world! 

She started selling her pieces on Instagram (@sassandcrafts) a few months ago and the following has been steadily growing as word get out of her unique style. 
 See what I mean? Obsessed…because obviously tassels are another form of fringe!

I convinced her to make some things for the Midland store and she brought them in yesterday! I was so excited that we couldn't help but style a couple things with our new fall styles. And that led to a mini photo session (because, oh yeah, she is also a bomb awesome photographer. See? Talent.) 

I know you are going to want to go stalk all thing Sass and Crafts now so here is all the details to do it:

Her blog is here. She shares a little bit about her inspiration on it!

Her Instagram (@sassandcrafts) sales are every Thursday at 8 CST. If you are unfamiliar how these work it is super simple. The first person to comment their PayPal email gets it. Items are for sale as long as they are unclaimed but you are going to want to set an alarm on your phone so you can be there first to see. Sorry, now you'll be addicted just like me!  


Guns or Glitter?

Our amazing friends threw us a gender reveal party a few weeks ago so that we could all find out together what this little rugrat is going to be. It was perfect.  Even if there was no electricity, or water for that matter, because that is what happens when you live in the country on a water well and it storms. 

Overwhelmed and overjoyed by the people in our lives that came, I was struck that this is our village.  These are our people.  These are the ones who will help us raise this child, family and friends alike. They love us and are invested in our growing family. I received texts from lots of them through out the day before saying they couldn't wait to see what "we are having" totally including themselves in the we. I cried over the amount of in my face blessing this showed me.

But enough with the sappy and on to the details this one put into the party that will make you drool and go crazy pinning:

Why yes, those are handwritten invitations. She must love me!

Team Girl VS. Team Boy

Ok I am usually not a game person but I really liked this.  Jaime found tons of old wives tales on how to predict gender, lots of which I had never heard, and had us circle what I had experienced. It was fun to hear which of these people held as true.

For the actual reveal she had my handsome hubby, who is an obsessive hunter if you don't know him, shoot a balloon filled with paint with his bow.  Could it have been any more tailor made for us? I LOVED it! Mostly because he was so into it and so darn excited it about made me cry (notice a pattern?).

So GUNS it is!
(as if there wouldn't have just been pink camo guns instead!)


Top it off

How are you guys feeling about the new fall trend of floppy felt hats? Cause I'm all over it!

perhaps wear hats a touch too often during summer but around here it hardly ever gets cold enough to don the traditional winter toppers. So these lovelies seem the perfect solution: not too hot, make them fancy with a dress, go casual with a kimono and leggings, or super laid back with a tee and boyfriend jeans.

Here are some of my Pinterest inspirations


And here is how we styled it with some of our new fall attire at the store!
And this fabulous tassel necklace is from my insanely talented friend. She sells them here and on Instagram, follow her @sassandcrafts.


That time we went glamping...

and there was a fabulous tent, an airstream, and a farmhouse.

There was yummy dinners under the stars.

S'mores and chatting by the campfire.

Feeding the cows in fancy dresses.

Worship by candlelight.

Learning to paint.

New friends and old friends.  

A photo shoot to celebrate the unique beauty God created in each of us.

Prayer for one another as we drank coffee in the morning sun and had the sweet truths of Jesus sang over us.

Of course there were flower crowns.

But mostly there was Jesus. Who met us there with the reminder that we are royal daughters of the most high king. An amazingly creative king who knit us together perfectly, chose us, and loves us more deeply than we could fathom. He whispered sweet reminders into each heart of who he has made us each to be. Isn't our beloved wonderful?

P.S.  I heard a rumor of a fall glampout… keep an eye on the Beloved Society blog for more details!
