Repurposing Pumpkins For Christmas.

Let’s get something straight. I am super cheap. This sometimes becomes a problem when it comes to decorating for the holidays, because I totally love doing that.

We normally don’t carve pumpkins for halloween, mostly because I normally get bored half way through and then they rot REALLY fast after. Also, this makes it so that I don’t have to buy more decorations for Fall/Thanksgiving. You just throw a hay bale from the feed store in there and voila!

Anyways, last year I felt so bad about throwing them out after Thanksgiving because they were still good. This year I had an idea!

I spray painted them christmas colors so we could keep them longer!

I plan on buying some live garland and putting a big red bow on the hay bale to make it more christmassy.

But I love the way it turned out! The red spray paint we already had, we bought the .97 cent white primer paint from home depot along with the metallic-y one, and then the glitter spray paint came in a bonus pack thing.

It was totally inexpensive and fun. It took a little more time to do than I had planned (the metallic paint took forever to dry) but other than that, it was fun! AND my pumpkins lasted for 3 holidays!

Happy Wednesday!


Happy Day Off???

Well I have no clue what holiday it is only that Cody has the day off today :)) I guess that’s what happens when you technically don’t have days off… SO that being said…HAPPY DAY OFF! If you have it! If not, I hope you have an awesome Monday and that it is not too hectic!

Have you heard of House Of Cards? It is a made for Netflix show and it is super intense. I am kinda hooked though.


Also, I am pretty stoked that I have completed every day of my Fab Ab February so far! I have had to figure out a new way to do push ups since I hurt my hand somehow…BOO.

fab-ab-februaryAre you doing this super easy workout routine??

I know this post is pretty half assed BUT it is a holiday and more importantly, I am watching House Of Cards and am totally distracted. I’mnotsorry.
