Outright Beautiful Decorations

I’m really getting into the Christmas spirit!  The decorations that I see as I’m out and about are just outright beautiful.  This is a close-up of a tree in a locally owned restaurant in downtown.  Next year, it will be the header on my blog :)

My favorite boy toy and I went to the mall for a while yesterday, getting there early and getting out early.  I took a picture of this tree with my cell phone.  It is humongously tall!

Since we were there early, we went out for lunch to Maggiano’s before heading home.  The inside is so very nice and festive.  I have New Year’s Eve reservations there and will take my better camera back.

It was nice though how empty the restaurant was for those first few minutes.

That’s the report for this last weekend before Christmas!

If you’re having trouble coming up with ideas for your blog, check out Sunday Stealing.  This came to me from Pam at Mushy Cloud.  I think I’ll try the Sunday one next week.  I liked the questions and I enjoyed Pam’s answers.

Word for tomorrow – MIND.  If you prefer to work ahead, see the list for the week under “A Word A Day”.

  1. This photos make my heart sing. Your blog is wonderful, uplifting and lights my world. So…you know what i’m going to say, don’t you? I am giving you the award I created over the weekend. It is The Candle Lighter Award. No strings attached—no requirement to pass it along. I do hope you will put the award on your blog so everyone can see it. If you do wish to pass the award to other uplifting blogs/bloggers go write ahead. Here is the link for you and for them. Thank you so much for your blog. and if you do pass it along I hope you will let me know. I’d love to include those you deem worthy on my list on the link page. http://believeanyway.wordpress.com/the-candle-lighter-award

    • Kate – what incredible compliments! I’m honored to be one of the first recipients of your fantastic idea.

      I’m so glad you enjoy my blog! Thanks so much.

      I will put the award out here and pass it along, but not tonight (I’m too tired).


    • Maggiano’s is great. We can’t believe that we have that & Cheesecake Factory in our backyard. So much closer than having to go all the way up to Edina to eat out. And yeah, your honey knows I’m not a nerd but just not enough of one.

      Merry Christmas to you also. I’m glad your adjusting and making the best of these changes.
