Randomness

Hi! I've really missed blogging! I didn't mean to take a break for this long, but it was needed. I've had alot of my mind, but this post isn't meant to be all deep and though provoking-just a fun update!

This picture is of my baby, Maxwell. He's half Maltese and half Yorkie and turned one in February. He's the most amazing, sweet, lovable pup I think there is. And he looks funny and washed out in this picture because I played with the enhancement option on iphoto too much-whoops :) I promise that he's absolutely beyond adorable in person.

Did you notice the awesome blanket Max is laying on? I have searched for years trying to find a good throw blanket. I wanted something cream or black and it is super hard to find a black throw! I finally came across this one at Hallmark the other day and it fits in perfectly with my whole new color scheme of black and white with accents of red. I hope to eventually purchase a cream colored couch-I have my eye on one at Pottery Barn, but I don't know if I can justify the cost. I sort of feel that I'm mostly paying for the brand name and that I might be able to find a similar couch that's not a designer brand at a much more reasonable price.

I finally finished the Harry Potter series and all I'll say (because I know that not all of you have read it) is that there were some definite tears that fell from my eyes and it's by far one of the best series I've ever read. I can't believe I'm going to say this, but...it even surpasses Twilight in my opinion. I LOVE Twilight because of the love story. The author manages to really connect the reader with the characters and I fell for Edward and sympathized, cried and celebrated with Bella. She was a master at immersing me in their world of love. However, J.K. Rowling is far superior when it comes to weaving an intricate, tantalizing plot line. Her ability to delve into the stories with extreme detail is beyond anything I've ever read. The way that everything connects and eventually comes together is something I truly didn't expect. While I hated the way that some of the story lines had to turn out, I understood the necessity behind it and thought the ending was perfect.

Well, I think I've gone on with my rambling quite long enough. Have a great night!
