Occupy Monday & Happy Halloween!

Happy Occupy Monday Halloween! The idea of Occupy Monday came from my adorable [real life and blog life] friend Alyssa at little baby mamma bear. In her post "Not the Only One" she decided to change her attitude about Monday and start the week off on a great note. Brilliant idea! So, I joined her for Occupy Monday.

I feel like today was a great day for Occupy Monday because it's Halloween and I love Halloween, so it was a little easier to have a great attitude toward Monday. Anyway, my preparation for Occupy Monday started over the weekend -- I decorated my front step for Halloween to get excited for Monday. Take some pumpkins, a metal crate, old bottle, branches, leaves, and a basket and...

Happy Fall!

Now, I don't have a cute front porch like many of my creative blogger crushes, but I did what I could with what I have.

Also, for a little pick-me-up in the kitchen, I added some pumpkin love there too with another old bottle, some branches, a pumpkin and a garland I made out of Halloween themed scrapbook paper.

Those little pumpkins make me smile when I sit at the kitchen table, which I had time for this morning since I got up early enough to sit down to eat my breakfast and read my Bible -- Occupy Monday driven. I also sported a little orange and black in a very professional manner for work today in celebration of Occupy Monday Halloween.

So, that's what I did in an effort to "Occupy" Monday and celebrate Halloween. Handy Andy and I are going to a murder mystery party next weekend so that's when we are sporting our costumes.

What did you do for Halloween?
