Challenge Day 17- Something You're Looking Forward To

I'm looking forward to:

.....HalloweenI love watching scary movies especially the older ones.  Halloween is still the scariest movie to me.  Too bad it's on a Sunday this year and I can't stay up till the wee hours of the morning with my hands covering my eyes.  It's also my mom's birthday.

.....our Yard Sale.  The hubs took out an ad in the paper yesterday so we will be up early Saturday morning.  Tomorrow I am cleaning out my closet to see what I want to sell (that part I'm not looking forward to).  This will start our Disney World fund (although the hubs says it's going to pay off credit card...that's no fun though).

.....a relaxing weekendAlthough our yard sale will be exhausting, it only lasts until noon and after that we can just relax.  Auburn is in Oxford this weekend playing Ole Miss so we will be at home and not in a football stadium all day.  I'm thinking of making Rotel dip, Buffalo chicken dip and maybe some halloween goodies.

.....Thanksgiving.  I love all the good food this holiday.  I make a corn casserole and macoroni and cheese every year.  Getting together with family is just so much fun.  To the ones you haven't seen in a while, you can just pick back up where you left off.  The weather is just perfect and of course a lot of football watching.  The Iron Bowl is the day after Thanksgiving again this year.  I volunteered to work 4 hours that day (since a lot of people including myself requested off but maybe I'll get on the boss's good side by doing this....she really is a great boss though).  I guess I won't be doing the Black Friday shopping, although our TV we have came from a Black Friday deal...not by me; I chose to sleep while the hubs camped out at Target and snagged a great deal.  He was the 1st one in the door.

..... moving up. Hopefully soon I will be a level III Medical Transcriptionist.  That is the highest you can go.  I will be paid by the line instead of hourly so blogging during the day might have to be toned down a little:)  With that comes a 15% raise.  I am a level II right now but moving along. 

..... Christmas. My favorite holiday.  Decorating the house and Christmas shopping, the food, the songs, the hot chocolate, family, giving gifts and I'm not going to lie...receiving them.  Less than 2 months away!

Link up with Katie and let us know what you're looking forward to!
