If dreams are like movies, then memories are films about ghosts

So, I don't really feel like I have anything to blog about at the moment. I always have lots of different ideas and such floating around my head, so I thought I would share a few of them. I mean, I will spare you the "I'm so excited to see Britney Spears!!" tangent (even thought I totally am....) These may or may not be more interesting than that!

So here goes....random tangents...

1) I'm so sad! It was announced that Domino Magazine is going out of circulation, and not only that, they are taking the website down too. Punks! I have been a fan of the website for a long time, and when I finally give in and get a subscription to the magazine, I only get to enjoy it for 3 months and then it's taken away from me. It's to bad too, because now I have a house to use a lot of their awesome tips and such. It's sad time. But I won't let it thwart my plans to become crafty! I already have a few ideas of things I want to make for the house, so I can't wait to get started. But, I must do it without my beloved Domino. You will be missed...

2) I'm so excited!! My oldest cousin Jenni and her husband Jon just had a baby!! He's a beautiful baby boy - Tilden Douglas. They are both wonderful people and are going to make such fantastic parents! I can't wait to meet the little man - I hope it's sooner than later!! They will be posting pics of Tilden soon, so check out their blog! What an exciting baby season :)

3) So, since Jacob and I are married now, we are in a new ward. When I was baptized at 19, I was baptized at the Singles Ward, and spent the last 7.5 years there. It had it's ups and downs, but it was comfortable and familiar to me. The family ward is a whole new can of worms. I don't know a lot of people (thank goodness for awesome people like Reva and Jared and the Burke's who are there). I know I will get comfortable there soon...and I hope its sooner than later!

4) I think that if Christian Bale ate something, he wouldn't be so moody on the set (I swear he gets thinner with each movie he does...) This would cause him to be pleasant to be around, and not cause him to scream at innocent people (I don't know if the video with the article is a copy of the rant, but I don't recommend listening to it...he's got the mouth of a sailor!) At least he apologized - he gets a lot credit for that. But still.

5) My Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer is my new favorite gadget. It makes me want to bake things all the time!! I've made cookies, pies, cup cakes, and they have all turned out great, thanks to the mixer!! Holy cow it's amazing...and pretty.

Turns out I don't think any of them were interesting, but since I typed it all up, I am posting it anyways. Maybe the next post will be better.

you're always interesting Ashley!! The biggest difference in a family than a singles ward are the kids crying. YOu get used to it though...especially when they are your, they get easier to tune out! ;)

I like when you post. I like you. I like that you came and hung out last night. And I like that Jacob got us ice cream that I get to enjoy for a second time tonight! Kisses.


Okay... really. I don't like you. I LOVE YOU!

Allison said...

I never knew you had a blog! yay! I love how all my cousins have blogs so I can stay informed about their lives and I am soooo excited for Tilden too :)

I want a mixer so badly. Sigh.

This makes me laugh. Family wards in general compared to the singles ward is not just a new can of worms.. it's a whole new world.
If that is the color of you Kitchaid, I'm totally jealous. I LOVE mine! It will bring you much happiness for years to come.

I'm with you Ashley... I fall behind on my blog all the time. But seriously, it's not like we are pregnant or have a newborn around or anything! Hopefully I'll get to see you when I'm home next week. Can't wait!!!

I just wanted to mention that I've given it a fair amount of thought, and I still don't understand the logic of this post's title. The two clauses are completely unrelated. Dreams aren't memories and ghosts have nothing to do with dreams, memories, or movies. It sounds pretty, though.
