Looking Forward...

Last week, I talked about living in the moment which I think is a very advisable (and admirable) way to live, but I am not going to lie – I also like having things to look forward to – vacations, holidays, a new book or movie, a package in the mail (on-line shopping!), trying a new restaurant with friends, etc.

Some of my blogging friends have been doing “Looking Forward” posts so I am taking a page from their book. Here is what I am looking forward to:

This Weekend… The Super Bowl, of course! It’s my team, the Seahawks, and really except for a Super Bowl party a few years ago, this is the most excited I have been about the Super Bowl in a long time. Even the half time acts are ones I am excited about – Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers! Go Seahawks! Sidebar: I ordered TWO shirts for the game—I really hope one of them shows up, but both would be nice. I can wear one during the first half, and the other during the second half.

NEXT MONTH…. I have to say Valentine’s Day. I do like getting a big bouquet from my husband. It is one of the holidays where he spares no expense on my flowers. And I will find a fun restaurant to go to. I also have another idea that we carried out last year—a bunch of my girlfriends and I did a Girls Valentine’s Day dinner beforehand. Yes, I really went to two dinners last year. And as for the FOLLOWING month, March (ugh, I don’t really like that month but we won’t go into that) I have things to look forward to as well—a trip to California (either March or April) and also I am going to be dog sitting for a Shih Tzu named Roxie. I get to take care of her a lot but it has been awhile. I think I get her for 10 whole days this time. Sorry, Violet.

This summer….So excited to see my friend, Amber, get married in Spencer, Iowa on July 19th! She has already shared a photo of her dress with me. I am just very happy for her. I love summer too for the trips we go on – usually Mackinac Island or Door County. But no details yet! Summer sounds good right about now.

THIS YEAR … This is a big one – I am going to Paris for my birthday in October!! More to come on that big event.

What about you? What are you looking forward to? Please leave me a comment!

I am excited to see you at Amber's wedding. No matter where I live in July, I am going to make it there! I am so so excited for her, too.

You have some fun things to look forward to, especially your Paris trip. That is going to be an AMAZING trip. I am so excited for you. If I move back by then (please God let that happen) we will have to meet up for coffee so I can give you some tips!

I am looking forward to going to Austin next weekend, home at the end of the month, and Florida in March for a work trip that I am extending so I can spend some time with family that lives down there.

Lol... You have a full plate this year! It sounds very exciting and btw I agree with March..yuck. I am looking forward to finishing the remodel in the master bath. Denise and I are almost done. I am looking forward to spring and tomato planting time. We did not make plans for a big vacation this year. We are gonna take several small ones. I am really looking forward to going up to Woodstock, NY for a few days and helping at the animal refuge. Thank You for making my day a little brighter Lesli :)

I am SO SO excited to have you at my wedding!! I know it will be so much fun! People could even make a little vacay out of the trip and check out the Okoboji area! :)

I have a lot to look forward to this year, but sometimes I get really overwhelmed. It is a lot! And can be scary!
