New House Christmas Decorating

Ever since I've been home from Vegas I've frantically been trying to get my house decorated for Christmas. I'm in a new home this year so I wanted to decorate my house differently than I have in the past. I wasn't aware that Christmas decor shopping on December 3rd would mean slim pickins. I was at Hobby Lobby yesterday and they were already clearing the aisles getting ready for Valentines Day. What?
Needless to say, next year the new house will look different. This year it's basically the same.
I spent all day yesterday and today making my house festive and I'm almost finished. On the inside. I haven't even thought about my outside and I'm sure my neighbors think the new folks occupying 902 Sloane are super Scrooge-ish. Tomorrow I'll throw some colored lights in the bushes and call it a day. I wanted my Craftsman Style home to look just like a Department 56 Snow Village house but it's 20 days until Christmas so I feel like there's no point in that effort. 
Here's a mini sample of my Christmas home that I posted on Instagram yesterday!
This is the first time I've had a fireplace and I love it!! I've always wanted to hang stockings. 

Besides Christmas decorating I've been dealing with an old lady issue--inflammation of my right hip. I know, right? It's happened a tiny bit in the past but not bad enough to mention it to anyone. It started flaring up in Vegas and is still hanging around and it's killing me!! I blame running. That's the main cause of inflammation of the hip. I ran really hard in Vegas because I was trying to counteract my crazy eating and I think that triggered it. Plus, we were walking all. day long. which didn't help. It's really irritating and I hope it doesn't cause me major problems 20 years from now. I feel like I create all types of broken body issues because of exercising. Isn't that ironic? It's supposed to be the opposite.
I guess I should head to bed now. Ivy and Madison have gotten to where they sleep with us at nigh and it's stressing me out. I want to do the right thing but I'm not sure what the right thing is!!!!! Dr. Bob says you should sleep with your dog because you bond better. They are great sleepers and I don't notice them at all. I don't know why but I just feel like they shouldn't sleep with us. It's so confusing!!!!! I'll think about it tomorrow. For now, off to bed with my girls (and guy).
