I'm Looking Forward To...

Getting a NookColor. Don't know exactly when this will happen, but it's on the wish list. I want to read Agatha Christie's entire library in order of publication and since a lot of books and plays are out of print (but available in electronic format) this seems to be the best way to accomplish that. I'll never give up books, I like the tangible things about books. The smell, the feel, being surrounded by them. But there's something to be said for being able to carry around an entire library at my fingertips.

Running the half marathon in SLC on April 16. I had signed up last year, but due to the knee injury I sustained in Myrtle Beach, I couldn't run. It will be fun to actually do it.

Our 9th wedding anniversary (March 12.) Hopefully Travis will be home and we can go to a fancy B&B for the night.

Gideon's 3rd birthday. He's really into the Backyardigans right now, so that will be the theme of is party. Plus for the first time we're not just inviting family for cake & presents, we're going to have a few friends over and play games. I've been having fun putting together goodie bags & prizes.

March Madness (of course!) So my Tarheels have lacked chemistry this year, but make no mistake, even though they're currently ranked 19th in he Top 25, they're still one of the most deeply talented teams in the country. Plus, there are other reasons to watch. Jimmer Freddette (above) for one. He's last year's Gordon Hayward, only with a way more fun name!

Spring! I'm so tired of ice and wind and snow. I'm ready for warm weather. And to be able to take my kids outside and play in the sunshine. It's hard living here this time of year! Serious cabin fever! Plus, I miss my tulips!

The baby showers I get to throw this summer for Jesse & Ashlynn. (I love planning parties!) And the new babies we get to add to the family in September!

No. You can't. You have a race to run on March 19th. Plus Gideon's birthday party, HELLO!

Oops that was me! Sorry, I'm using the in-laws computer right now.

I am getting a Nook Too! Tomorrow! But I'm not getting the color. And it will be great when we both have one because we can use the Nook share, and share our books with each other for up to two weeks at a time! yay!
