Looking Forward

to hanging out with Kari tonight. Girl talk, dinner, maybe some knitting will actually be accomplished this time. Now I just have to convince her that alcohol should be involved!

to going out with the "Lunch Bunch" tomorrow afternoon. Lunch at a local cafe to celebrate the birthday of one of our "members".

to date night with my main squeeze tomorrow. Sounds ridiculous, but it's been two days and I miss him!

to a birthday celebration Saturday night for a friend (and co-worker). Bowling and FREE BEER. To do: learn to like beer by Saturday.

to seeing Mr. Billy Joel himself live and in concert Sunday night!! Hopefully taking Clancy's parents to one of our new favorite restaurants beforehand. I've been looking forward to this weekend for so long :)

to a much needed, no reason at all vacation day on Monday. They're predicting highs in the 70s and sunny skies. I'm thinking a bike ride is in order.

to summer! My 26th birthday(!!), the birth of my niece, possible road trips to Virginia and Chicago, my cousin's graduation party, Clancy's birthday, his work picnic in Hershey, PA, my work picnic at King's Island and hopefully spending some time on the beaches of Lake Erie and visiting Niagara Falls. And of course a ton of swimming, tanning, and bike riding. I love this time of year!

What are you looking forward to?

I am looking forward to moving, having a new apartment, going to see the boy in two weeks, spending the 4th of July in Boston, going on a cruise in December, my birthday, and you writing me back.

I'm looking forward to the Sox game on Monday (you can chalk up your vacation day to Patriots Day even though Mass is the only state to celebrate!), going to LA for work in May, going to see REM in June with my aunt and my mom, meeting La in July (and having her move here soon after!) and beach days. Lots and lots of beach days :)

Billy Joel gives the second best concert around.

Bruce Springsteen is the best.

Though, I'm a huge Melissa Etheridge fan too.

Enjoy the concert.

Me? I'm looking forward to coming home a little early tonight, walking in the door, and hearing four little kids yell, "DADDY!" and run up and hug me.

Of course, that's what I look forward to every day.

Allison M. said...

saw Billy Joel in Cleveland last year on the floor. Very, very cool. Although the people behind us weren't cool with us standing the whole time. My advice -- don't buy floor seats then.
