Labor day shopping spree.

I am fully taking advantage of living with my parents and not having a mortgage payment right now. I can slowly decorate my house in my mind and buy some of the things that I know that I am going to want in our new home. I had originally decided to use navy blue and chartreuse for our interior colors and have now decided to get rid of the navy, and gear more towards tans, champagnes, golds, and ivory with a tiny bit of yellow pops in there. I am still going to use the canvas art over our fireplace after polling my good friends on Facebook asking whether I should use a mirror over my fireplace or a piece of art. My lovely friend Katy made the perfect statement, the wall already has reflective qualities.

So off I went today, sans children, to find some good labor day deals. I also couldn't help but wonder into the Christmas section at Hobby Lobby and buy some Christmas decorations. I don't think my husband was entirely too excited about it. Oh, well. I am!

I also have been waiting for this gorgeous sunburst mirror to go on sale at Hobby Lobby and I just couldn't pass it up being 50% off today! I think its new home is going to be in our downstairs powder room!

I also bought an antique lantern a few months ago at a street market for Luke's new room. It is red, so I need to change the color of it, but it is perfect for a travel themed nursery. When I saw these bad boys, I knew they would be perfect in his new room! 

This city scape art is for Aiden's new room. He has informed me he wants a skateboard room like Kick Buttowski. Yay. Not. But, I accepted his challenge and I am going to give him a little boy urban skateboard room. 

Now onto Christmas. AH! These were all 40% off at Hobby Lobby. I saw these gold, sparkly treats last year and waited until they went on clearance after the holiday was over and they only had the small ones. Boo. So I jumped on this bandwagon this year to make sure I got them! 

Also new stockings to match our new home decor. I will probably add some sort of cute burlap flower or something to make them a little more personal. I will still keep the boys adorable Pottery Barn Kids stockings because they are oh so expensive cute! 

Does anyone else shop for Christmas stuff on Labor Day? Just me? What are you fall and winter plans already in the works?
