Friday can't seem to get here fast enough. Chris has the day off tomorrow and will hopefully get alot done so we can have a nice relaxing weekend. We are hoping that our headboard will be ready this weekend but aren't going to get our hopes up and there are still a few small things that I need to do around the house. At some point I envision myself laying out, soaking up some sun, with a Jalapeno Cucumber Margarita in one hand and a book in the other! Sounds like heaven to me!
