Ten Things I'm Looking Forward To...

As I've mentioned in the past, life in SE Saskatchewan is not the most interesting. Like at all. In the Summer months there is definitely a lot more to do but the Winter months usually bring the Winter Blues and they tend to get the best of me. Luckily I've managed to avoid them so far this year - probably because of my frequent trips to Minnesota - but I always like to have a list of things to look forward to help keep them at bay. I did a similar post in March of last year when Karli had the Ten on Tuesday link up. That link up may be no more but I'm still going to reserve Tuesdays for Ten Things (because I love lists)

Ten Things I'm Looking Forward To...

1| My nephew (finally) making his arrival. We've only got about a month(ish) until his arrival. His due date is Valentine's Day and its coming so quick - I can't wait to snuggle him and never let him go. I swear it was just yesterday that I found out that they were expecting and now the countdown is on

2| Warm weather. Last week we were hitting -45°C temperatures with the wind chill. By the end of this week we are supposed to get to above freezing (before factoring in the wind chill). Bring on the flip flops and patio drinks!

3| Baseball season to begin. Yes, already. I've missed bird watching so much over the last 3 months. Only 75 more days until opening day. Not that I'm counting...

4| Crossing things off off of my 30 Before 30 list. Just a little over 6 months left - eeek! There's a few things I need to revamp on my list and then I need to kick it into overdrive!

5| And on that note, turning the Dirty Thirty. Yes. I'm actually looking forward to it. I had been dreading it for so long but now I'm embracing it. It doesn't hurt that I'll be going to Vegas to celebrate...

6| Seeing Eric Church in concert.  I head to the Twin Cities tomorrow night and MN and I (and his sister and her bf) are going to EC's Holdin' My Own Tour on Friday night. I haven't been to a concert since February 2014 when I saw Luke Bryan when I went on a girls trip to Bismarck with my mom, aunt, SIL and cousin so this concert is long overdue. This tour is just Eric and his band, no other acts so its two full sets with an intermission in between - I can't wait! I'm only listening to Eric on Spotify this week in preparation

7| Getting a new tattoo. I got some money for Christmas from my parents and I've decided to use it for my next tattoo. It's been in the works for almost a year for Toni, Scooby, and I to get tattoos together so I'm hoping to convince them we need to do that sooner rather than later - it has been over 6 months since my last tattoo after all

8| Getting away for MN's Dirty Thirty. We still have to finalize our plans but we are hoping to go back to Duluth around MN's 30th. That area is so gorgeous I could go again and again and again 

9| Daily yoga practice. At some point last year I stopped doing daily yoga and I desperately want to get back to this. One of my goals for 2017 is to establish a morning routine, which is going to include yoga

10| Paying off all my debt. This is the year it happens and I can't.freaking.wait!
