Hey there!
Hi! I'm Billie Jo, a wife to one and mother to four who loves all things home and family. During the day I homeschool, do laundry, and drink way excessive amounts of coffee. I would much rather read than exercise, and I am blessed to live the life I dreamed of.

  1. Looks like a fantastic fall bucket list! Hope you have a wonderful week filled with many of those things.

  2. I love every single thing on your list!!! <3

  3. I just noticed all the mums at Walmart this morning. It's definitely time to buy some!

  4. Yes, today is gloomy and cool so I treated myself to a coffee after rosary. But tomorrow it will be in the 80s. (Later today too they say.)

  5. I bought mums and small cabbage plants for some of my flower boxes. I hope to put out all the fall things today after sewing!

  6. I cannot wait to make soup in a crock pot!!! My sister made chili this past weekend and it was SOOOOOO good! That is a favorite Fall activity for me! Also - yes to football!!!!!!! Hugs

  7. Oh if only it would feel like fall.... it's over 100 degrees. I can't wait for cooler weather.

  8. Wonderful. And to you too. It's definitely chilly here today, I'm in need of some not cocoa. Thanks for the reminder of all the wonderful fall things. CJ xx

  9. I am SO ready for all of these Fall things! If the weather would just cooperate:) Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

  10. OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I love your new look here, smiles.

  11. What did you mean by "to buy a mum"? Chrysanthemum?

  12. Love, love, love all that you have shared here. I love the fall season so very much. Homespun Hugs ♥ Teri

  13. All in good time my friend, all in good time! Things to look forward to for sure.

  14. Your list of Autumn to do's is wonderful. I especially like the idea of pumpkin bread. I always get the pumpkin loaf at Starbuck's this time of year.
