That was a line made famous by Zoolander, a character Jesse seems to idol at times... But I had to say it! I just wanted to post a snippet of a photo of my husband on his adventures overseas. I have decided that next Christmas we're going to some Christmassy things. 'Now, why not do it now?' you might ask and the answer is simple: I work in retail. Retail and Christmas can be so hectic that you don't really get a time to do much of anything, let along enjoy the holiday. I basically have one week -- next week -- to do all of my Christmas shopping. After that, I'm not venturing out again unless it is to go to the Tacoma Mall to work.
I'm getting off track here, so back on to next year. Jesse will be home, and we'll be able to do lots of stuff! There is this train that takes you to Leavenworth, Washington for a day trip to see the tree lighting there. Normally there is snow, and the bavarian town is absolutely beautiful. I've never seen Leavenworth in the winter, and would love to do that.
Another thing that I would love to do is go to Illwaco, Washington (one of the most southwestern most towns in the state) and see what they do down there. One of the big local fish markets makes a tree out of crab pots and puts lights on it. Then they have a "tree lighting" of sorts. They also have a lighted boat parade too which just sounds fun! I know they have some things similar to that in Tacoma (in regard to lighted boats) because we've seen them down on the waterfront for my birthday in January. I know Jesse would be up for this tree lighting - his favorite artist has a gallery down on the water there. I love that beach, there's something about it that's just beautiful!
Anyway, I am going to finish up here so I can get ready for work.... As much as I don't wanna go today! It's cold outside which doesn't help either - and my dress coat is still in storage! Oh well I guess!
