Today was also tax day for us. We met with our accountant. Now we just have to sit and wait and hope our estimates were right and that we won't get kicked come April!

After that I headed back to Plainfield. I had some spare time, so I headed to Kohl's to do some quick shopping. I decided to try on these skinny jeans and rad zippy:) This is my attempt to be young and hip -- don't worry, I didn't buy any of it!
I did cave, though, and buy a black pair of skinny jeans at Maurices, but I can justify them b/c they were only $10! We'll see if I ever wear them:)
I had a lunch with Missy and her two girls, Abbi & Kaitlyn, at McDonald's. Abbi was pretty happy to play on all the equipment they have there.

Since Wednesday is T.J.'s day off and I am home today, we are going to hit up Sam's Club for some bulky items (chicken, kleenex, etc.) Maybe we'll give the dogs a bath today. Or maybe not. I don't know if we will be able to kneel down by the tub to do it! Probably going to buy our Vegas tickets today! We are looking forward to going in June with a good group of friends for Mike & Meagan's wedding.

After lunch we got dessert at Cold Stone Creamery -- YUM-O!! Mike & Julie sent us a valentine with a gift card for Cold Stone (thank you so much!) we love that place and birthday cake remix.
We went home and just hung out but got kind of restless, so we decided to go to El J's for some margaritas. They were delicious! I will definitely add that to my "regular order" everytime we go there.
I wanted to share with everyone my list of things I love about T.J. I wrote this for him in his card. So here goes:
T.J., I love:
- your eyes
- your laugh
- your hugs
- your kisses
- the way you make me laugh
- the way you listen to me
- how we fit like a puzzle together
- how you split the chores with me
- how we are always on the same page
- how you never complain about my cooking (or lack thereof)
- the way you love me for me
- how you help me save money
- the funny things you mispronounce
- how you stutter when you get excited
- your snores when you are awake
- your bed head
- your whistling
- your beat boxing
- your hands
- how you share the remote
- how you spit big time when you sneeze:)
- how you take the dogs out most of the time
- how you make up different words for songs
This is, of course, just a small list of the things I love about T.J., but some are kind of funny and I wanted to share.

After the walk we decided to stop at Wal-Mart to get a detachable shower head. It's been a big necessity, but we keep putting it off. Now bath time with the doggies will be a little easier! Saturday afternoon we decided to go and see He's Just Not That Into You. It was a cute chick flick.
This morning T.J. got up and went and got a haircut. I decided to take the dogs for another walk. They seemed to know more of what they were doing this time. We went for a Sunday drive early this afternoon. Then we came home and watched Housebunny (hillarious!!) Now we are watching Eagle Eye. This is a side note, but we went to the car wash today and I noticed what was holding this sign up...nothing but a trusty old belt:)
I don't have an idea what I am going to do tomorrow with myself. Maybe make something??

Otherwise, nothing new to report. T.J. has been reading the last book in the Twilight series, Breaking Dawn. At his work they took most of the Internet privileges away, so he has become quite the bookworm!

Mom really likes her new digital frame from all her kids:)
We did some shopping on Saturday at Greenwood Mall. T.J. and Scott went to see Gran Torino while we shopped. They said it was a really good movie. We got some yummy Baskin Robins for dessert! We also went to Hobby Lobby for some netting to make these scrubby things for washing dishes.
Mom & Scott had some breakfast and then hit the road for the ride back to Iowa. It was so fun having them here! Now I have to work while T.J. is watching the PPV from last night. Then the Super Bowl tonight.
