Taxing...

Well lets just say that today is a wonderful day... to some. I hope you all finished your taxes in time! I got mine done before leaving for Hawaii, thankfully, and this year was the first year where I made more than 10 dollars. It's amazing what a full time job can do for you! :)

This was also the first year that I had my professionally done and let me tell you, it's so worth it. I just handed over my papers and the wonderful tax person did them for me. Stress free.

I hope you all are going to have wonderful returns as well. :)

This is where I'm spending all my returns. Ps. Happy Birthday to Mr. R's brother. :)

Congrats! I always got money back... that is until I started Grad school and stopped working f/t -- Ugh -- Now I'm married... so who knows! LOL

I want me some returns so I can go to a tropical paradise!

ummmm wow...Now that looks like money well spent! I do my own taxes through Turbo tax, they make it too easy, infact I just got done doing my sisters taxes yesterday on there...Now that WAS cutting it close:p now that I'm married I got a bit more back but of course it went on our credit card to start paying off the wedding:p Have a great time!!!

X-Country2 said...

Sigh, that place looks beautiful!

RunToFinish said...

I'm pretty sure we bought a couch with our return, oh well!! I'll dream of nice places while sleeping on it

RunWithMe said...

Beautiful - I bet that's a nice place to run! My taxes were done through Turbo Tax, not as easy as having them professionally done, but saved me some money. It's hard to pay taxes and pay someone to do them, so this was my compromise. Regardless, feels good to have them done!!!

Running Around Acres said...

I have a reputation for finishing tax early. I always get it done by end of February so that felt like a long time ago. Happy Taxing Day and enjoy your vacation.
