Good morning! Catching up from the weekend?
Saturday, I posted about Friday night and the new frozen yogurt place in town.
Sunday I posted about Saturday, when I went with Bobby to his cheer competition, and I posted the video of him partner stunting/throwing baskets etc. Be sure to check it out, he’s good!
It’s dreary and rainy here. A cold front is coming through and it’s windy! It was like this all day yesterday too, but we still had a great day! We did a lot of cleaning and football watching. We also took the girls out in the golf cart and let them run around out by the lake. They LOVE running on the flat grassy area, chasing birds and smelling all the new smells.
Birds?! Where? I am getting bored with these squeaky toys you make me play with.
I also finally had a chance to get up the remainder of our outside Christmas lights. I think the house came out nicely, except for the one strand of red in the trees that is halfway lit. I hate how easily lights go out! Oh well!
aannddd all lit up!
You can see the Christmas tree through the left window.
I had a “vision” of how I wanted the garland/lights and I think I did a good job of making it a reality. The only thing missing is some lights on the front bushes and garland/lights around the door, but I didn’t want to have to buy any, so maybe I will hit up some after Christmas sales.
It’s day 7 in the boot, and while I hardly notice it anymore, it is still SO frustrating to be so immobile. I miss running, and dancing around the living room to Christmas music, and being able to wear two shoes at once. December 20th needs to hurry up and get here! I am doing ab work and arm work as much as I can without a gym, but my abs get sore so I can’t do it every day. I am trying to be mindful of my eating, and so far I am doing ok but I also haven’t done any holiday baking yet…oh boy.
QOTD: DO you decorate outside for Christmas? Do you go around and look at lights?
*Don’t forget! Send me a picture of your outside Christmas lights (or Christmas tree or both!) and I will post on the blog! email@example.com
Your house is gorgeous! It reminds me of the house from the notebook! You did a great job decorating!!
Heather, your home looks beautiful!! I love all of your decorations!!
The house looks amazing!!! I live in the woods so we don’t decorate outside unless the deer are interested but being hunting season we don’t give them a show!
Also go check out Sweat Once a day @ http://www.sweatonceaday.com she was awesome in her boot and kept really active! Might have some suggestions 😉 Have a great day!

When I had my own apartment, I put lights up on the balcony in addition to my Christmas tree and other decorations inside. Now I travel back home to Michigan for Christmas, and help my mom decorate my parents’ house. I absolutely love the drive around and look at lights; it was something I did with my best friend in high school.

Wow, your house is beautiful! We decorate the outside of the house, but minimally – a couple of strands of lights on the porch, and a few light-up decorations too. We’ll be doing that this week sometime, maybe even today if I get out of work early enough! 🙂
The house looks great!! We always drive around on Dec 23rd to see all of the christmas lights. Y’all need to go down to the neighborhood on Pineville Road in Long Beach. They have the entire neighborhood (still mostly undeveloped) lit up and they all “dance” in time to a certain radio station. Very cool!
that sounds neat! may have to check it out!
Just saw that WLOX highlighted the neighborhood: http://www.wlox.com/story/16194980/a-half-mile-of-christmas-cheer-on-long-beachs-penny-lane
Your house is absolutely gorgeous! You did a wonderful job!

Your house is beautiful! Good job on the decorations.
PS I thought about you last night as I watched the Saints trounce our Lions. I got so frustrated at one point, I even startled Husband with my yelling.
Your house looks great!! I just love it! 🙂
Hey girl! I’m giving away a dog bandana of your choice via k9designs on my blog. Since you’re a die hard LSU fan–I thought you might be interested in getting one in LSU colors for your pup in time for the championship game 🙂
thanks will check it out!
Your house looks great, girl! I love the garland and the lights! Way to go! :0)
Your house looks great! we usually try to do some decorating outside for the kids even though living in the woods only they see it. But isn’t that the point. But I have a broken shoulder and torn rotator cuff and my husband just had knee surgery the day befor thankgiving( stem cell) so no light this year. We didn’t even go do our usual and go to the local tree farm and cut down a tree. And I really see how my girls miss those traditions:(. So were just makeing new ones this year.. Good luck with the boot.
oh wow yall sound more pathetic than we do with the boot and broken nose. get well!
Your house looks great! I really love this style of homes.
