I'm {kinda} Over Fall Now

After a VERY stressful week of volleyball {we ended up in First place!} I was ready for something fun and festive. We have playoff games coming up this next week, so Saturday was the perfect time to go with my mother-in-law and sneak away to some holiday open houses at a few stores!I had never been to "House of Design" in Red Bluff. Wow! I sure have been missing out!
It was a wonderland of Christmas decor! The staff must have worked around the clock, everything was breath taking! { we sipped on the most delicious apple cider while we "ooed and awed"}
This was my favorite area, the "pear green" tree and garland was beautiful!
The garland, oh the garland.....
There were so many cute things and they were displayed so perfectly, it made you think you needed everything! {but, I think I better wait to get my Christmas boxes down from the attic and see what I bought last year at the sales 1/2 off!!!}
It doesn't hurt to take pictures and try to recreate it with what you already have though.
Isn't it lovely??
There were many trees all beautifully done in their own unique themes.
They had some Fall displays as well. Wouldn't it be so nice to have a friend, that had a store like this, to come over and decorate your house for all the holidays?!
Love the wheat and the unbelievable garland!
I thought I would throw this in for the Moms of girls...what a cute idea! Little lights under the tulle. This would be darling as an end table.
Later that evening, Shae, Anna and I went to see "A Christmas Carol" in 3D. The effects were awesome, but we don't recommend the movie. It was pretty scary (Anna had her glasses on top of her head for a big portion of the movie). THAT particular movie is a downer anyway, but this version is somewhat dark and dreary (and extra scary).
Lindsay has been telling Scott she wanted to "go on a date" with him all week. Saturday morning she reminded him that he promised he would take her out to dinner all by themselves without Mommy and the girls so they did just that while we were at the movie!
We had a very nice, relaxing weekend. I think I can handle a stressful volleyball game on Tuesday night now...and I think I might just be "over" Fall and ready to get my Christmas decorations out!!

What pretty decorations! Yes, I am ready to take the Fall stuff down and put up Christmas stuff, but I just can't do it yet. I'm thinking I'll start the week of Thanksgiving.

Thanks for the heads up on the movie. Roy is out of town and I told Caroline we'd go on a girls night next Sunday. I was thinking of taking her to see that but now I definitely won't!!!!

Awwww.... Mrs. Luff is as cute as ever! I'm totally going to make an end table like that for Samantha. Thanks for sharing. Thanks for the heads up on the movie. We were going to go see it at IMAX this week, but now I'm thinking we'll do something else. I saw your post about an ornament exchange on Facebook. Why can't you live by me? =0) I'm thinking I'll have to do one with my friends here.

I'm still loving fall but knowing Christmas is right around the corner is so exciting. I don't want to rush it though because I hate when it's all over. :(

Thanks for the heads up on the movie. I wanted to see that but maybe I'll wait until it comes out so I don't waste my money. :)

Hello, just getting caught up on your blog. Danny and the children are downstairs watching a movie so I have a bit of free time.

LOVE the baby end table thing. I need to remember to do that in the baby girls room once they are both in big girl beds. (That's a bit sad to say.)
