Birthdays and Dreams

Today is my 25th birthday! And I’m pretty excited about it in case you couldn’t tell. =) I’m always excited about my birthdays though, whether there’s a party involved or they’re “big birthday milestones”. This year’s birthday was a simple plan of sleeping in late, enjoying the DVD presents my parents gave me, and having a nice dinner with my fiancée at Carino’s Italian Grill. Going out with a group or throwing a party can be fun, but I’m more of a low-key type of person.

Anywho...for the other part of this post I’m going to ramble about dreams. Not dreams meaning life-long goals or aspirations…dreams meaning the kind you have at night while you sleep. I generally have very vivid and often strange dreams that I can somewhat remember, at least for a short while after waking. It’s almost like I’m watching a movie (because I’m rarely the subject of my own dreams) and these stories are being played out in front of me. But when I wake up, I can only remembered bits and pieces of the “movie”. I had one of these types of dreams last night, and I woke up kind of sad that I couldn’t find out the “end” of the “story”. But I wrote it down and perhaps someday I will discover or create the ending.

*Update - 03/04/2011 - I changed the design and layout to a new purpley theme from the "busy pink" one mentioned in this entry below*

Please excuse the dust and remember to wear your hard-hat while visiting. I'm currently under-going a redesign of my blog. And while I really did like my old background and layout, I felt it was too dark and it was time for a change. Of course, what you are viewing now may not be the final outcome of this remodeling. I'm playing around with different layouts and backgrounds. I like this current one, but it might be too busy...and there's a lot of pink involved. I'm not really a "pink" kind of gal...purple is much more my style, but I'm giving this design a try. We'll see how long it lasts. Drop me a comment and tell me what you think.

P.S. I plan posting some entries soon. I have snow, more books, and monsters to blog about...tune in soon!
