It’s Friday! My favorite day of the week! Today, I’m borrowing a page from Lisa and talking about all the fun things I have to look forward to over the next few months.
Today, I am looking forward to a quiet night in.
I really have no plans tonight and I am so looking forward to it. I’m thinking of spending the afternoon by the pool, catching up on my DVR-ed shows, ordering in for dinner, finishing a book I can’t put down, and cuddling with Dutch. It’s going to be a good night.
This weekend, I am looking forward to getting my hair cut and colored.
I haven’t gotten my hair colored since January and haven’t gotten a proper cut since April so I am very, very overdue. I am 80% certain I am going to go for the dark auburn color because why not?! It’s fun and different and such a perfect color for fall. I’ve also fallen in love with this bob and I may just be chopping my hair off. Who knows?!
I’m also looking forward to welcoming my mom and her boyfriend back in town on Sunday afternoon. She’s been gone since last Friday (they left on a cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale on Sunday) and I miss her like crazy! While I’ve enjoyed having the apartment to myself and doing my own thing, I’m also very ready for her to come home. 🙂
This month, I am looking forward to receiving my new iPhone!
I ordered my iPhone 5S two weeks ago and I am really, really excited to receive it. Partly because it is new and shiny and pretty, but mainly because I am totally phoneless for the time being. I’ve been whining about all over Facebook and Twitter, but basically, my phone overheated during my nephew’s birthday party and I believe some of the battery must have melted, because when I took it to the Genius Bar, they said there was liquid all over the back of the phone and couldn’t even work on it. So that’s real lovely. The first time ever that my mom goes out of the country without me and I have no way to contact anyone, other than through my computer. It just makes me very anxious to be without a way to call if something happens! So believe me when I say, I cannot wait to get my new iPhone. Being phoneless is the worst. It needs to hurry up and ship!
This year, I am looking forward to going on a girl’s cruise with my friends from book club.
There are five of us going and all five of us getting along super well. It kind of boggles my mind that I’m actually going on a vacation with girlfriends. Joining this group and meeting these girls was simply divine intervention and I love that I put aside my fears of not fitting in aside to try out a book club. The best part is that we may be going on a party cruise (it’s just a 2-day cruise out of Tampa), but we’re so not partiers. There’s already been talk of waking up at 8am to exercise and we all got super excited about the library that has board games. I mean, if these aren’t my people, THEN I DON’T KNOW WHO I AM. So, so, SO excited! (Oh! And it’s a different cruise line. For the past 4 cruises I’ve been on, I’ve used Carnival and this cruise is by Norwegian. Excited to see how they differ!)
Next year, I am looking forward to taking my first trip to NYC.
I have decided that I must, must, must visit NYC in the Spring of 2014. I’ve never been and it’s one of those “Life List” items that I can never seem to get around to. I’m thinking either April or May, a time where it’s not too cold and not too hot. (So April 25, right?) My mom has never been either and, as my favorite travel buddy, I think the two of us experiencing the wonder of NYC together would be such a fun thing! I’ll definitely be looking for your tips and advice on what to see, do, and eat while we’re there. This will probably be my one big trip for 2014 so it’s time to start planning and saving! (Although a cruise in the fall is not off the table. Because, of course!)
What’s something you’re looking forward to?
