Have my truck waxed and detailed

I took it to the car wash on Ridge Rd in Munster.  They did a decent job for the price, but it's already looking banged up again.  I'm going to need to get it waxed come summer.  Bethel beat up my paint with the sand and wind and harsh conditions.  Now Indiana is beating it up with careless neighbors who hit it with their car doors.

Set up a real live Christmas tre

Well, the pictures are reverse again, but this is it...our Christmas tree.  It was small and perfect!

And I had never actually cut one down before, just usually bought it from the store so this added a whole other level to it.  Then at the end of the season, they city had a burning party!!!

Start a new tradition

Last year, Eric and I spent our first days together as a couple in Chicago enjoying the city lights and holiday festivities.  We went to a holiday market where we got a christmas ornament to commemorate our first holiday together.  This year we again went into the city on a weekend during the holiday season, enjoyed the city light, holiday festivities, and a 2015 ornament to add to the tree.  This, I think, will be our new holiday tradition...both the ornament and the time spent together.
