When you are a mom who is 99% of the time broke thanks to the sacrifices you've made for your family (personal example being myself, a stay at home momma) you come to realize the magic and utter joy of this time of the year.

Yes folks, I am talking about tax refund time. I'm speaking especially to you moms who also enjoy the extra funds thanks to the child tax credit.

So what did you do with or plan to do with your moolah?
(And I'm don't want to hear about paying off bills, credit cards, and all of that crap ... what did you treat yourself to?)

I ordered myself some gorgeous fabric from ScabooFabrics and some dried lavender from Glass House Supplies to make some heart sachets to hang in the windows around the house.

Oh - and I got incredibly sick of trying to share one computer with my husband and my son - so I bought myself a fancy schmancy new laptop that is strictly mine for business :)

Yeah ... not only did I splurge on a new computer, but in some small and stupid way I feel kinda official now because I have a computer totally dedicated to me.

I'm pretty sure its love ♥

Refund? I wish. My husband is a fireman and I am a cashier at a restaurant. We live pay check to pay check...but because we do not have children, we usually OWE the IRS. I have no idea why and it is so unfair. But, that's life. have fun with yours and spend some for me ,will ya?

Ahhhhhh....refunds! We were going to use ours to go to Disney, but decided against it. I bought a new laptop this fall and I know what you mean about feeling official. I won a skin and put my shop banner on it and made it pretty. =D

Congrats on the new computer! It's a great feeling, isn't it? Happy Valentine's Day to you!

How nice to enjoy it! Yay for you!

I'm not saying a word about my refund and how I spent the money... because you probably don't want to hear about paying off debt collectors from unpaid and unaffordable hospital bills... but I'm excited to feel the relief of not having those bills, so that means just as much to me!!
