F A L L | Dollar Tree decor haul

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

I'm a little late getting around to checking out the Dollar Tree this year for fall items. Luckily my store still had lots to choose from. While I was there I also grabbed new Halloween stuff, but we won't talk about Halloween today.  I love how the Dollar Tree has really stepped up their game with their seasonal decor. They had some really adorable festive items and I spent about $20 on fall & Halloween stuff. 

I love decorating my home for holidays and seasons. My biggest seasonal decor storage bin is the one that houses fall & Halloween stuff. After this years new stuff, I'm going to have to get a new bin and separate fall from Halloween. I love decorating for Christmas, but I super duper love decorating for fall & Halloween.

The beauty of finding pieces at the Dollar Tree is you can mix it with your more expensive decor to really bulk up what you have. And if it doesn't last after the season, you only spent a dollar! However, I still have Dollar Tree items from 4 years ago. As long as you pack it up nice, you won't have any issues.

Let's get into the haul!

What I read over the summer

Monday, August 28, 2017

I read every night before bed.  I don't fall asleep easily and reading before bed really helps.  I read on my iPad in the Kindle app so that I can have the lights off.  I don't read super fast, I'm not one of those that reads a whole book a day.  I just read a little bit every night until I pass out.  I can't tell you how many times I've woken up snuggling my iPad because I fell asleep reading!  Fun fact: 2 nights ago I was woken up by Siri talking to me on my iPad.

This summer I've read mostly thrillers & mysteries.  My absolute favorite genre is psychological thrillers.  (I'm looking at you Gillian Flynn, when are you going to release a new book?!)  It's quite funny that I enjoy thrillers and mysteries because I'm a huge scaredy cat.  I love the thrill of 'whodunit'.  You couldn't pay me to go to a spook house though!
