Here are a few of my pictures of the Christmas decor.

Tree #1 in the dining room. It has all our photo frames and collected family ornaments.

Tree #2 Living Room
This one I did in red and lime green.
Love it

Shelf #1 Living room
I used my nutcrackers and santa's here

Shelf #2

Pinterest inspiration
I am waiting on a certain someone to get me sticks for arms
Isn't he the cutest thing on the front door

Our precious, bossy, rambunctious Abbi Lane
She is keeping us on our toes!

This weekend was a busy one. I had to work on Friday and didn't leave the office until 6pm. I did make it to PetSmart and Old Navy before work on Friday. That was the extent of my Black Friday shopping.

Our plans were to decorate on Friday night but we needed to rearrange furniture so we didn't start until Saturday morning.  I decorated 4 trees in the house and little bits all over the house. I still have some fluffing to do but so far I love what I have done. I made a snowman for the front door that I found on Pinterest. SO SO Cute, I can't wait to show you.

Scott and Coco were a big help too. Scott didn't complain once which was a blessing since he usually is not into all the packing of tubs from the storage to the house and back. He didn't even gripe about my 15 tubs of decorations.

I need inspiration for the dining room center piece so I will be perusing Pinterest later tonight.

I was going to take pictures to post but the camera died and I can't find the charger :(

We are having so much fun with Abbi Lane the new puppy. She has a precious personality and loves to play. She is afraid to jump off the couch or chair so if we walk out the room she barks til we come let her down. She might just end up as the boss if we aren't careful.

We have also been enjoying the Christmas shows on TV!

Now to rest up for a busy work week.

Coco received a early Christmas present today
Her name is Abbi Lane
She is 5 months old 
Sweet as can be

Very hard to get a photo of her she is so bouncy
See that little bow in her hair so adorable

Already looking at her mama with adoration!!

Can't believe I am giving in. I was not raised with animals in the house so it is totally new for me but I know I must make some sacrifices.
Coco is over the moon to have her!!!

The Sheraton in St Louis had the prettiest lighting.

Love this with all the deer. Looks Christmasy to me.


These were just outside the elevators. I loved all 4 of them together.

I could use these!

Not a light but I could use just 1 of these in the corner of the bedroom.

I went to St. Louis Missouri for another week of training for work.
I stayed at the Sheraton Westport
I had a great room this time. Last week I stayed at another hotel that wasn't near as nice.

King size bed, couch with foot stool. Very nice for relaxing after a long day of training.

I loved these bed side tables.

Cool corner light.
The room service and food was excellent.

This hotel had some gorgeous lighting.
I will show you some of them later in the week.

Glad this part of the training is over. Now I will have 2 weeks of in office training. This has all been tiring and inconvienent but I am impressed that the company is investing so much to make our jobs a success. They also feed us very well. We had breakfast every morning snacks throughout the day and a big lunch each day.
I have gained 5 lbs over the last 2 weeks. Will have to work that off !

Did you feel the earthquake last night just before 11pm? We actually thought at first it was the washer being unlevel, but even the windows shook. First time experience for me. Can't imagine being in a place that has these often. We didn't have any damage that we know of.

Have a great day
