Anyone planning something fun? Luckily, we haven't had to pay since we had children so we can normally do a little something fun with the girls. This year we are driving up to Hot Springs for a few days. I hoping to entice DH into considering a move to the Ozarks. We were wanting to move to Washington State(someplace I've always wanted to be), but one of the big draws for that was we had good friends there. Now they've left that state and moved back here. Hot Springs and that area would only be about a 7 hour drive from family and friends. And there are people we know there. I hate starting over finding friends.

Other than that, we are replacing our stupid dishwasher. Not fun at all.


So what are your plans?

We will do all kinds, we always get a nice bit back as we have the kids as well and I'm a SAHM. We will pay bills (not fun lol) and buy some stuff we will need soon, highchair for baby, new carseat, etc.

DH is getting a motorcycle. We have been a one car family since October 2012 so we are FINALLY getting a 2nd way of transportation and I get my van back! woohoo! Dh's work is literally 1 mile away so it hasn't been too bad with having one car, but still.

Then some will go to credit cards to get them paid off and the rest will go to savings to move to Florida, hopefully by the summer.

Sometime after all that's done I'd like to trade in the van for an Acadia. I want my SUV back, I miss them.

Adding a garage/crossfit gym on to our house. The contractor is coming to give us a quote tomorrow. We have most of it saved already but the tax return will put us over the edge and we will be able to do it. It will be so nice to have storage that is not the corner of the livingroom or half of Tessa's bedroom.

I will be happy for DH to have his crossfit gym too. He can put all his football and firefighter stuff out there and I won't have his gigantic framed college football jersey in my hallway anymore. I keep telling him football and firefighter memorbillia is mancave decor only.

We will pay for the boys summer camp. Any left after that will go into the home addition fund. We are planning on adding a room on to the back of the house, like a family/play room.

This is a very florida DDC.

I'm not sure there will be much fun with mine. Property taxes first thing, then some home improvement stuff because were finally moving into my house. Savings. SO's vehicle fund too hopefully. We're pulling off this one car thing as long as possible and doing ok, but it'll be nice to have two.

We are getting quite a bit back, but we're putting it all towards debt and savings. We're paying off our last credit card (woohoo!), paying off the back taxes on the land we're inheriting, and the rest is going into our 'we may be getting out of the Army in November' savings account.

We always have a credit card to pay off first thing. That's our plan for almost every Christmas, put it all on the card and pay for it with taxes! Then we keep it paid off till September or so. Seems like everyone has a birthday at the end of the year!
