Excitement

Kevin and I have been playing around with the idea of using our tax return (I know, it's best to keep the money throughout the year, but try as we might we can not get those deductions to balance out quite right) to buy Disney seasonal passes. We go back and forth. Anyway you slice it, it's a lot of money. So we decided to think about it a while longer.

Yesterday, I got home from playgroup & Kevin was working from home. He mentioned instead of doing the Disney thing, maybe for just a little more we could get wood floors in our downstairs living areas. Apparently, my reaction was extreme excitement because he immediately said "well I guess that's what we are doing," before I even said a word. Something about my eyes lighting up with joy. Seriously, this carpet has been the bane of my existence for some months now. So, yes it's pretty thrilling.

Now I just have to figure out what I want to buy and let my handy hubby install. We are leaning toward engineered wood and I kind of know the color I want, but I'm a little overwhelmed with figuring out which brand because, well... it needs to be bullet little boy proof. If it scratches I might cry. But the thought of no more stained, uncleanable carpet makes me giddy.

So, sorry kids, no more Disney this year. Momma's getting a new floor!

So exciting! One caution- don't go for the really dark- my sister has it, and it is gorgeous, but it shows every speck of dust!
