looking forward

Consider this a backward version of my nostalgia posts. This is a small list of the things I am currently anticipating with great excitement~

The rest aren't really in any specific order, but this first one is definitely what I am the most impatient for...

can he be MY Edward?

A little over a year ago while substitute teaching at a high school, I was talking about books with another teacher. She said I had to read a series called "Twilight." There were 2 books available and a 3rd due out right away, so I got busy on the first one and finished it within 2 days. Book two was the same for me, I devoured it. I had to get on a waiting list for the third, but as soon as it came in, I read it in a night. Love.. I was in love with a character of a novel. The same teacher let me know that there was a 4th book being released one year later... Oh the agony of that wait, I can't even begin to explain. Finally, a couple months ago, I read the 4th and final novel "Breaking Dawn."

So what is it I am now waiting for so breathlessly? My fabulous sister and niece (both fabulous) are going to meet me for a midnight showing of THE TWILIGHT MOVIE!!!!!!! Writing cannot convey my true emotion, I'm not even able to sit still. The countdown is ON from now until November 20th!!

So that's number 1.

The rest, but as I said, in no certain order~

2~ A good storm, with thunder, lightening, and most importantly, RAIN.

3~ My next doctor's appointment. I think my thyroid is getting accustomed to my medication and I might need a higher dosage, so I am extremely ready to get that taken care of.

4~ Christmas. I know, I'm rushing the year...sorry.... it's just my favorite holiday and I can't wait to see how it is in a new place. I'm very excited about this holiday season.

5~ Photography gigs. I am so looking forward to lining up some new jobs, especially seniors, I miss them.

6~ Pumpkin everything.

7~ A cold front that is supposed to hit Austin this weekend. I will get to wear a coat... hurray!

8~ Tomorrow. I'm ready for tomorrow because I will be getting my hair done again... due to a scheduling error I was given the wrong product of deep conditioning today, so I get to go back tomorrow for the right one. I'm stoked.

9~ The next time I have a reason to wear fake eyelashes...that was just too much fun, I can't wait to need to use them again. Like that will happen anytime soon, but you can count on me looking for any excuse.

10~ This one is a biggie. I am ready for this afternoon.... it is my day off and I just returned from the library with 3 novels to read. I will have myself a short run (2 miles) and then shower, hopefully lather on some yummy lotion, wear my comfiest clothes, and snuggle in for a nice read!

Jason Mraz is providing the nice music musing today, it's his version of "The Rainbow Connection."

Hi Amelia!
I catch up on your blog from time to time, and I know EXACTLY how you feel about Twilight! My friends couldn't go opening night, so I have to wait another three days. AAAAHH! Have a great time:)
