First up, cleaning at the dentist.  Not the ideal Christmas activity, but fresh breath makes for a fresh smile in all of those Holiday photos and close-ups.  Cozying up with your sweetheart will be far less embarrassing if you have nice, minty fresh breath instead of unbearable halitosis.  I actually know someone with this.  Remember to brush, floss, and rinse, at least twice a day.

From there, we grabbed a bite to eat and tried a Peppermint Mocha from McDonald's.. I never say this, but "meh".  It doesn't even compare to Starbucks {I haven't tasted any others, but it's my newest goal.. so if you're a coffee shop in San Diego that offers a Peppermint Mocha, leave a comment below to invite me over for a taste-test and review by yours truly!  Perhaps even a little coffee talk, as long as I'm there..}

Our family had kind of overlooked a major Christmas icon, customary for all American homes.  It's something you decorate, with your choice of lights and ornaments.. NANNA!  Just kidding, a Christmas Tree, silly!  It was on our agenda last weekend, but when we struck out, it dropped on our priority list.  I guess "save it for a sunny day" was today.  {did you like that?  "save it for a sunny day"?  We live in San Diego, so rainy doesn't happen that often.. if we hadn't saved it for a sunny day, it might never have happened.}  Yes, it is true what they say.  We talk about weather all the time... and how amazing it is!

Pine needles, branches, and a fresh cut trunk.. our Christmas tree was coming home with us today, and all for the outrageous price of.. $20.ºº!  WHAT?  That's right!  Twenty dollars, from good ol' Walmart.  Three to five footers, nineteen ninety five.  Ahhhh yeah.
