A big thanks to the sweet comments on my Blogiversary number 2 post yesterday. I still can’t believe I have been doing this for two years now. It makes my heart happy. Some of you have some great blogging goals and I hope you achieve them! As always if you have questions, would like advice or an opinion I am happy to help.
So I showed you a sneak peek of something Bobby and I did on Sunday and some of you got it right. Yes, I know it’s a little early but we have some very busy weekends coming up (weddings, visiting family, neighborhood events, etc.) so this was the best weekend for us to get it done. I am obsessed with Christmas and with decorating for it. For sure one of my favorite things to do all year. It was strange decorating this year because 1.) I was living at home last year so didn’t have a house of my own to decorate and 2.) we are in a new house so I had to figure out a “place” everything. I am not quite done so more pictures will follow but here is the main “stuff.”
We get ornaments when we visit a new place, have something neat happen, etc. This year the ornament we got was in Disneyworld after we ran the marathon. We had this made at the Christmas store in Downtown Disney:
Bella didn’t like us moving the furniture out of the area where we put the tree. She gets stressed out so easily.
Putting ornaments on the tree! I can’t believe it’s finally tttiimmeee!
I put blankets around the bottom of the tree so we wouldn’t have any broken ornament #fail. This is our first time with wood floors in the living room and I have seen my parents break too many at their house!
Our star-less tree. I told Bobby to make sure he didn’t pick up the star with the non-working lights (we have two) and he plugged it in and it worked…then, he dropped it. Gah! So now the working star is also a non-working star, so until I get a new one…it just looks so weird with nothing on top!
Not to mention, it’s a big tree and it looked HUGE in our old house but with our two story living room it looks so tiny!

It’s comical to look at these pictures taken just days ago, because the girls got haircuts yesterday and now look so different, but very pretty I might add.
So, there you have it, a few of our pictures. I am excited to decorate outside, hopefully this coming weekend. I am still on a hunt for some garland I like for the banisters.
I am hoping the YMCA is still set to open on Saturday. They still have a lot of work to do in my opinion and it’s making me nervous. I REALLY need to get back to a workout routine, I have been so lazy the past two weeks with all that has happened with being sick, then my foot, then the ER visit. I am so excited to be just a block or so away from a gym. The pool is outdoors but will be good for warmer weather cross training (some of you were asking about it in my cross training workouts post.) I will be sure to take pictures on Saturday, and I may even attend the grand opening yoga class! This should be interesting.
QOTD: When do you usually decorate for Christmas? Any decorating traditions? Growing up we decorated the weekend of Thanksgiving, and we always ordered pizza and listened to Christmas music while we decorated.
