tax returns and valentines

i haven't written anything for about a month. life is just so busy with work and school and mommy land... i just can't wait for the summer. math will be done and the weather will be warm and i will be able to relax a little.

but some good things are happening:

1. my sweet hubs gave me a gift certificate for an 80 minute hot stone massage! gratuity included... i am so excited.. nothing is better.

2. tax return time! i love february for this reason alone! getting taxes back is the best! i always feel so much better knowing that we will have some money in savings, that we can tackle a home improvement project and that we can go on a trip of some sort...

that being said, we are redoing our kitchen! i am so excited. it is gonna have a bit of a vintage feel to it. brad got a router for christmas so he is going to give our cabinets come character, we are going to paint the top ones white and the bottoms ones yellow. we are going to tile the floor through out the kitchen and dining room, put up beadboard, and possibly get new counter tops.. i am so excited to be rid of the dark cabinets... ugh.. so sick of it.. and the ugly linolium floor... yay!

just writing about it makes me happy.
what a cute little man on valentine's day!

A massage sounds really good right about now :). What an awesome gift! I love tax return time too! Good luck with your kitchen! Reese is getting so big, he's so cute!

Cant wait to see the kitchen! Love rock massages. Ok, I love any massage, who am I kidding. Have fun with that.
