Wanting.....no needing......no Loving

OK OK OK  I know it is not even Halloween yet, but I can't help starting to get an idea of Christmas lists from my family.  I am not going to skip over Halloween or Thanksgiving, but I am going to start getting prepared and excited for Christmas.  This seems to be the one time a year that people tend to be a little nicer, a little happier, and more willing to help others.  I love decorating my house, making hot chocolate, watching Christmas movies and of course watching my loved ones open their Christmas presents.  I normally don't have anything I want for Christmas, but this year I actually found something I want and I wanted to share it with everyone because I think it is amazing.
I have been wanting a bar in our basement.....well.....since we moved into this house.  I even have a collection of bar stuff that I am determined to use someday in my bar.  The problem is I still want my basement to be super functional for my kids.  I found a solution and I WANT IT FOR CHRISTMAS!!!!

A Pallet Bar.....I found a bunch of pictures of these online and I love them.  I also know the perfect person to make me one  :)   Any other good pallet ideas I should know about?

As I sit here in my warm and comfy bed listening to my dog snore I realize that I am a very lucky woman.  I have a wonderful husband, two fantastic kids, and a life that is hectic but completely worth every minute.  I really should be doing my homework, but my mind keeps wandering away from my studies.
My daughter is a teenager, but you would think she is an adult, completely independent, and even my son is starting to follow in her footsteps.  I realize that I am 34 and soon will be 37 with a daughter in college and a son in high school.  I don't know what happened but somewhere along the way they grew up.  I can't believe it.
My daughter and I sit and look at colleges together and I just want to stop time and say NO, she isn't going to go.  The reality is she will go and my son will follow 4 years later.  My husband and I have big plans for when my kids are all grown up, but it doesn't make it any less harder.

Be sure to cherish every moment with your family  :)
