Looking Forward

I've done a decent amount of looking back lately - which has been both good and bad. Some memories are fun to revisit, like looking at pictures of the day my nephews were all born. Some memories are not as fun to revisit, like looking back at past relationships that have ended.

So today is a good day for another looking forward post!

Today I will have dinner with 3 of my best girlfriends from college, one of which now lives in NYC. It's not very common for us 4 to see each other, so I am so excited for tonight! I can't wait to catch up over wine! Hopefully the weather cooperates so we can sit outside!

This week I will have dinner with my aunt and cousin at Ecopolitan, a restaurant I have been wanting to try out for a long time now! It's a raw food restaurant that is gluten free friendly! My cousin has raved about it so I can't wait to check it out!

This month I will get together with some co-workers from The Pysch Experiment. While I do not miss job one bit, I do miss the people I worked with. It will be great to catch up!

This year I will go on a mini-vacation with my girlfriends to celebrate our upcoming 30th birthdays! I can't wait to figure out where we will go for our long weekend getaway! Perhaps we will start the planning process at dinner tonight.

What are you looking forward to today, this week, this month, and/or this year?

Sounds like you have some really fun get-togethers in the near future! That is very true about sometimes just having to switch the mind from "looking back" to "looking ahead"! :)

This week, I look forward to going to a Diamondbacks game. This month I look forward to our camping trip at the end of June! And this YEAR I look forward to entering the "real world" as a nurse! :)

Have a great time with your friends tonight! That sounds like such a fun time.

This week, I am going to a concert with friends on Saturday. This month, I'm looking forward to my extra days off and am making fun plans. This year, I will hopefully end up in a different place than when I started.

That's a fun list. Unfortunately this week I'm just trying to get through a rough work schedule... in the not as near future I'm looking forward to visiting my sister in a month and a half, though.

This week: Harry Connick Jr in concert on Friday night, Breast Cancer walk Saturday morning and a one-tent circus on Sunday!

This month: I'm having a mini party on the 19th so that will be fun!

This year: a trip to meet/see you =)

Great post Lisa! It's a good thing to look forward and be excited for what is to come instead of looking back and thinking what could have been.

This week, I am looking forward to going shopping with one of my bridesmaids. We live 3 hours apart so it will be nice to spend time with her.

Hope you have a great time with your girlfriends at dinner tonight!

Awww yay! Looking forward posts are so fun.

This week I am looking forward to being DONE with the dreaded reading I've been anxious about for months! This month I am looking forward to... sharing my birthday with my dad on Father's day! And this year I am looking forward to visiting family back in England, going on my first BLOGGER meetup, and getting married :)

Have fun!!

I hope yall have fun at dinner tonight. Do you have a place picked out? I have heard such great things about the new restaurant by the chefs from 112 Eatery.

Looking forward is always fun. I'm looking forward to a few friend get togethers that will happen later this summer. Such fun anticipating the events to come, especially camping and finally getting back on a plane! Woohoo!

You've got a lot to look forward to. This week I'm looking forward to getting into some sort of healthy routine for my life. That's my focus right now.
