January // 12 things you want to read/see/listen to/experience this year.

  1. My grandmother’s 100th birthday – she recently broke a bone, so the plans are more subdued than previously anticipated, but it’s still going to be a raucous party.  How often does a loved one reach triple digits?
  2. A month of theater.  The Boy and I have tickets for so many different shows, and there are so many good ones in DC in the month of February that we’ve had to cut ourselves off.  I mean, we have to stay some nights at home, right?
  3. Good friends gave us a gift certificate to do a cool scavenger hunt with them early in the spring.  I’m so excited, I can’t stand it.
  4. Opening Day for the Nationals.  A new season, a new chance to…hopefully not mess things up.
  5. I’m getting married this spring.  Did I forget to mention that?  Whoops.  😉
  6. A weekend in upstate New York to celebrate another momentous birthday with my other grandmother!
  7. Foreign travel somewhere this summer…anyone have a cool recommendation?
  8. Lots of interesting movies coming out this year (Beauty and the Beast, The Circle, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Wonder Woman, Thor Ragnarok, Star Wars Episode VIII…all very exciting!)
  9. TV shows I love coming back – House of Cards, Master of None, Scandal (FINALLY BACK THIS WEEK), Last Week Tonight, Game of Thrones, Girls, Sense8, Outlander.
  10. New TV shows/projects that look cool: The Handmaid’s Tale, Star Trek: Discovery, American Gods.
  11. There are so many books I’m looking forward to reading.  Few are releasing in 2017, but I know that many of the books I’ve got coming up are exciting ones!
  12. Being in our house for a full year – we know more about its quirks and what needs fixing, what can wait, and how to make the best of what we have.  I’m looking forward to not having to spend a year figuring out the best way to do things.

So obviously that’s my list.  Anything that y’all are particularly looking forward to in 2017?

      I’m very lucky. And it’s both inspiring and scary for my own personal longevity!
