Life Among the BOXES!!

I would just like to say a quick THANK YOU to everyone who commented on my last post about letting people know about your blog. It was a huge encouragment and I feel a lot better about my decision to keep my blog private from my family. I love having all of you to turn to for advice and like having you all to myself! : >
I've made the decision to start another blog for my family and friends because I'd really like to share out day in day out adventures with our families especially since hubby's are all in Scotland. I would be a nice way for them to feel connected to us and keep up with what's going on in our lives.
Okay on to the post........
These boxes are covering every inch of our loft right now! It's so weird having all of our stuff packed up in boxes since we've lived here for the past 5 years. We close tomorrow and I'm praying that everything goes off without a hitch! I can't wait to be in the house and get everything organized.
We did a lot of packing yesterday and guess what I woke up to this morning???? A thrown out back! Of course! So I have a bag of ice on my back as I'm writing this and I'm getting ready to take a super hot shower to try to loosen the muscles up....ugh, I mean worst possible time ever to throw out your back! Good thing we've got movers coming on Tuesday!
And when did Fall arrive!??!?!? I feel like I've been in another world and last night as I drove to the store to get dinner (since we have nothing in the house because it's all packed up) I saw halloween decorations everywhere, it's only a month away!!!
This is my favorite time of year and I wanted to share my all time FAVORITE fall movies and halloween movies with you!!

First up my all time favorite movie is You've Got Mail, it just makes me happy and I love everything about it, especially how it opens in the Fall with pumpkins and fall leaves!

Next is Runaway Bride another fall favorite, the scenery in this movie is just gorgeous and the little town that Julie Roberts character is from is so quaint and beautiful! It really gets me in the fall mood!

This is my all time favorite Halloween movie!!! I actually went to see this movie for my 12th birthday and I've been in love with it ever since. Love it, Love it, love it!!
Love the witch's cottage in the movie!Another fave is practical magic!! I could just watch this movie for the house and the way it's decorated!! Love it!!

How beautiful is this house?!
And the inside I just love!!

What Lies Beneath is a great thriller!! Love Michelle Pfeiffer and Harrison Ford in this, it's a great movie to watch late at night!!!

Love Sleepy Hollow, it's such a great rainy day movie to watch!!!

So I NEED to know what are your favorite Fall movies and Halloween movies of all time!!???

Am I the Only One......

Okay so I have a confession to make. I haven't told my family and friends that I have a blog. The only one that knows that I have a blog is hubby. But unfortunately hubby has a big mouth and tells everyone. I think it's a mixture of he's excited about the fact that I have a blog, he wants other people to know about it, and he just can't keep secrets at all, ever.....
I think the reason that I like my family and friends not knowing that I have a blog is I don't have to watch what I say and make sure I'm guarded with what I put on here. I'm more myself, which I guess I shouldn't have to be like that but I am.
And it's so frustrating when I find out that he's told yet another person, I almost wish I hadn't told him about it!!!! ugh!!!
Does anyone else out there keep their blog a secret from their friends and family??? Am I wrong for wanting to keep it private from them??? Just wondering.....

My Favorite Sunday Purchase!

The Martha Stewart Halloween issue is out and I was so excited to get my copy at the store yesterday!!
As sad as I am to see summer end, I'm soooo excited about Fall, because fall means wedding anniversary, pumpkins, apple cider, leaves, spiced pumpkin latte's, halloween, scary movies, trick or treaters, and so much more!! : O
I'm so making the Martha Stewart Ghost cake this year! The recipe is in the magazine and I saw a couple of bloggers last year make this and it looked so cute! I think it will be the first cake I make in my new kitchen, in my new house!!! eeee!!! so excited! : > haha
Hope everyone had a great Monday and have a great week!
