Christmas is getting bigger

This has been like the busiest weekend ever. We got our new carpet installed. We finally got our new furniture delivered at 6:30 last night. We have been cleaning out everything we own. We have rearranged rooms. We have cleaned everything. And we spent today hauling off the old furniture (including a ginormous sectional) all of which was done in my Rav4.

Did I miss a workout? Nope. The shoulders, arms and chest workout tonight was little much today after all that moving of crap but I did it. I was cursing in my head though.

However, in the midst of all of that work, we were decorating for Christmas. We decided we needed a new tree topper. We have looked everywhere. Everything left is crap. And I do mean crap. Someone told us we should try the Christmas store.

What is the Christmas store? We had never heard of such a place. Well, we found it. It is actually called the Decorators Warehouse. It is SPECTACULAR!! I have never seen anything quite like it. I did not want to leave as it is filled the holiday spirit. Pretty much anything you could ever want (except for a snowflake tree topper). I did look at how they topped their trees and I will give it a try but I am not sure I can pull it off.

This fabulous picture is from the inner section of the warehouse (before you get to the tearoom - yup, there is a tearoom). One of the MANY toy soldiers. Just to give you an idea, I am 5'10. Everything is bigger in Texas. So if you ever want to feel petite, just seek out a giant nut cracker or visit the Christmas store.

I shall post more pics tomorrow of my house. Why? Because I am just so excited about it. It is like a brand new house. I am no longer embarrassed to have people come over. That is how disgusting our carpet was. But no more!!

Hope you all had a terrific weekend. I will have a diet related post tomorrow. So please read it and comment. I will need feedback!

That is really a cool reminds me of Bronners in Frankenmuth in Michigan.
It claims to be the worlds largest Christmas store...I have no idea whether it is or isn't...but it was pretty cool the few times I went.
We had an angel tree topper from the get go. It used to be lighted...
It finally bit the dust two years ago and I had to find a new one.
It is harder than you think finding the 'right' angel.
We still don't have it...but it's close.
You know. I think next year we will do it up big.
Plan ahead and all that.
I was so wrapped up in dropping pounds that seven months has come and gone like that.
All I have is a blur of gravel road and gym sweat.
Hope your family has a very Happy Christmas.
God bless,

I can't wait to see the pictures of your house! We recently re-modeled our living room and it really does make it feel like a new house!
