Monday Listicles: 10 Things I'm Looking Forward To

A couple of weeks ago, I happened to find this fun link-up from Stasha over at The Good Life. I am a lover of lists, so I thought I would join in this week for 10 things I am looking forward to.

10 Things I'm Looking Forward To

1) my birthday
Not only fun because it's my birthday, but my nan and aunt have their birthdays just days after mine, so all of the family gets together for a celebration, which is always one of my favorite things to do!

2) my new job
I'm so ready for everything to fall into place and have my paperwork approved, so I can get to sailing!

3) the State Fair of Texas
This is happening. My sister and I have already made plans. I will ride the Texas Star, even though it terrifies me (it's a tradition, after all), and I will be hunting down the Fried Nutella.

4) my ship assignment
Once my paperwork is all approved, I will receive information about what ship I will be sailing with. Not gonna lie, I have a few favorites in the fleet that I would LOVE to be on.

5) Emily and Kelby's wedding
Yay! Still planning, still excited!

6) Pink Zebra launch party
My cousin, Amanda, is having a launch party for Pink Zebra on Friday night, and I think it will be a lot of fun. Mallory and Emily are gonna go with me. 

7) the holidays
I don't know if I will be home for any of the major Fall/Winter holidays...Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, but even if I'm not, I'm looking forward to celebrating them. I've heard Christmas is a really cool time to be on a cruise ship. If I do leave before then, I'm making my family celebrate with me before I go.

8) a Dallas Stars game
I told my sister before I leave I want to go to a Stars game. I don't think I could have ever predicted I would be a hockey fan!

9) the Katybug Shuffle 5K
This will be my first ever 5K in front of other people, and the proceeds from the race benefit Katy and Brooke, two little girls that are battling cancer. I don't think there is a better cause to support than that. I need to get registered!

10) Fall TV
All my favorite shows return this week! Except for Supernatural and The Walking Dead...I have to wait 'til October? Really??

My 5 Favorites!

What are YOU looking forward to? Link-up and join the fun!


  1. I went to SMU many years ago. I remember loving to go to the Texas State Fair. So sad when I heard about Big Tex.

    1. Yeah, Big Tex is a pretty big deal around here. He makes his debut on Friday!

  2. Can't wait for Parenthood and Modern Family to return, but have to wait until late October for another favorite, Grimm! I am also looking forward to my birthday in October!

  3. Sooooo, I have to ask, what is your new job that entails you being on a ship!?

    1. I will be working for Camp Carnival on a Carnival ship. I emailed you all the details! :-)

  4. My comment just poofed.
    Happy birthday month and here is praying you get your choice of post.

    I have not heard of the middle, googling it now ;)

  5. The fair looks awesome!!! That is a wonderful cause for a 5-K. We enjoy a lot of Walk-A-Thons in this area that benefits cancer and diabetes. I love Supernatural. That's about it on my t.v. list.

  6. Congrats on your new job! How exciting. And go run girl!!!

  7. So much fun and good stuff to look forward to!
