Looking forward to...

... A day off tomorrow, and doing NOTHING.  OK, that's not entirely true.  I have a few odd jobs to do around the house, and I need to give myself a little pedicure, but otherwise, I'm doing NOTHING but watching Netflix and working on a puzzle and reading.  No cooking anything, no baking anything, no creating projects for myself.  Just chillin'.  I have Mondays and Fridays off this time of year, and I've been packing them with shopping trips and activities galore.  I need one of 'em to be a "nothing" day.  Need some solid quality time with the Gilmores!

... A "Wine & Sign" Party Friday night. I've been invited to one at a friend's house, and it sounds like fun.  We will each be creating our own signs (the design I chose says "grateful, thankful, blessed") and just hanging out and chatting (with wine, of course).  Should be a fun evening!

... Another day at the curling rink on Saturday, this time for the Canada Day Committee's first-ever fundraiser bonspiel.  For someone who started out the winter hating curling and wishing I'd never bothered trying it, I'm becoming quite a regular. haha!  I've promised myself to be better behaved than last Saturday, though.  I got a little rowdy last weekend.  I need to re-establish myself as a respectable citizen. ;)

... Appointments on Monday morning.  NOT REALLY.  But I've been putting off going for blood work for over a month now, and I also have a dentist appointment, so I figured I'd better kill two birds with one stone and get them both over with on Monday morning.  I'll feel better for the rest of the week knowing they're done.  (I hate appointments.  so much.)

... Our church's annual Irish Tea, which is coming up next Saturday.  We always have fun putting together this little fundraiser for our church, and treating the folks in our community to a tea with fancy sandwiches and squares in celebration of St. Paddy's Day.  Always a great time!

... St. Patrick's Day!  Our little town does it up big, with several well-known parties, and I'm not sure yet if/where I'll be celebrating, but it's always a fun vibe around town regardless.  I usually like to don my green and make an appearance at the big shindig at Gavan's, even if it's just for a little while.

... An upcoming "Escape" with friends!  We've picked a date, now we just need to finalize who is coming and what time we want to book the Escape room for.  I've always wanted to try this, and I can't wait to do it with great friends :)

... Easter.  OK, it's still super far off, and Lent literally just started, but I'm already daydreaming of how good the potatoes will taste. ;)  (oh, and also, all the Easter candy.  God, I love Easter candy.)

... Choosing a new workout program.  I've been in an exercising rut and trying to decide what to do about it.  I keep telling myself once the weather is nicer, I'll get back to walking/jogging every night, but my best success has always come from doing a program, and I need a fresh new one.  I've been researching this week.  I'm very intrigued by Pound, but thinking I might be better off with Beachbody's Country Heat. (I've always had a soft spot for line dancing. lol)  I won't be purchasing for a few more weeks (need to get a few other bills paid off first), but I definitely want to get a new program to freshen up my desire to work out!

... A weekend trip to TO in May.  Ever since I went to Toronto several years ago with friends, I've wanted to go back, especially for a Blue Jays game.  I loved the experience of being there to watch the game live, and it's just nice to get away for a few days and spend time in TO.  Tickets are booked and I can't wait!

Go to the Loose Moose for drinks and food when you go to Toronto! Cheap and good!

If you want a free workout that you can do at home, check out the Fitness Blender website. They all vary in length and type (HIIT, strength, kick boxing, etc). Everything is easily modified as I do them and modify a lot being pregnant :)

I used to love line dancing in college! I was terrible at it, but boy was it fun.

Have you tried Zumba? It's my absolute favorite way to work out. It doesn't even feel like working out, and it's the only way I've managed to shed pounds. I don't do it as often as I'd like. I've never heard of Pound, but it looks fun!

Your trip to Toronto sounds fun! I love a good vacation to look forward to!
