When Fall comes, I get ready to be a Football Widow. My husband helps coach high school football, so come fall, it's just me and my son. Friday nights are football games.

We go on a date to get pumpkins and fun cheap decorations the first weekend of October. That's in 2 days! Yay!

I love Halloween! I'll usually carve a pumpkin, and we have candy for trick-or-treaters. I am hoping to decorate our porch for the first time this year. We are also invited to an annual Halloween party (which generally I am in a sour mood for but that is a whole other story!) and we usually go to a fun event called Nightmare Vermont.

I usually try to firm up an idea on Halloween costumes so I can make a Goodwill run or two for pieces I can use to make whatever I decide to be. This year, my sister's bachelorette party is on Halloween weekend, so I'm using a dress I already have to meet the theme she selected (Great Gatsby).

Just call me La. Most everyone else does.

I LOVE this time of year. LOVE it.

Once September gets here I'm happy as a clam until January. I live in Michigan so we really get to see the seasons change right before our eyes. I love when the air turns just crisp enough to need a sweater or a light jacket, I love putting on my knee high leather boots over leggings with a long tunic shirt and a cute scarf.

I break out my scented candles and add splashes of fall all around my house and start using my crock pot to make yummy soups. In October we get together with our friends and go to an apple orchard/pumpkin farm and take a hayride, pick apples and pumpkins, go through a corn maze, drink cider and then we all go back to someone's house to carve our pumpkins and put them on display.

I will this year! My husband and I just bought our first house, we've always been in an apartment before now, so no outside to decorate. I already got some of those fake spider webs, a few signs/tombstones, a black light for the front porch and some little glow in the dark pebbles that I'm going to use to line the walkway to the front door. I'm really excited to get to spend an afternoon putting it all up - just am not sure when is the best time to decorate. Even though Halloween isn't for a whole month I want to do it now... emoticon

I do! But nothing too extreme. My husband and I moved into our new house this past summer. So far for fall we've put out pumpkins and a fall wreath as well as decorated the mantle. That will probably be the extent of it as far as fall decor goes. I love fall and decorations but we just don't have the money to be extravagant with it. :)

LOL Chris. I understand!

When I had a house, and just married, and young, I got into every holiday and decorated everything. But yes, SO much storage space is needed. When I got divorced and down sized and had no money, I didn't bother and became bah humbug about every holiday. It is a lot of money and waste. This is actually the first year in AGES I've bought some pumpkins. That's about all I am going to do.

I hate orange and brown LOL. So not much decorating for me :-) Although it's our first fall in this house, so may I'll wait to see what my neighbours do and catch up if necessary ;-) We'll see...

To be honest, I'm not much into temporary decorations. I don't like to buy stuff and either throw it away after one or two months (a waste) or store it for next year (takes up too much space). Ah, maybe I'm just boring :-D

I wish I had time to decorate. We do a few little things like kitchen towels but that's mostly it. We are thinking of going to a pumpkin patch this year though. Great for pictures!

Just for fun, do you do anything to prepare for fall? Decorations, costumes, parties?
