2010 Dreamer Goals & Perricone Winner

Happy Wednesday Ocean Dreamers!
One more day until New Year's Eve...any fun plans?
BK and I are planning on a low key night, we might go and watch a movie in the theater. I really am in the mood to go dancing though, I listened to Shakira's She Wolf on the way to work today and it made me want to try out some dance moves! :P Whatever you do, I hope you are safe and have a great start to the New Year!

So instead of calling my goals my New Year's resolutions...I am calling them my Ten Dreamer Goals because after all, I am a dreamer at heart.

1. Right now I am training for Surf City's half marathon on February 7th. My goal this year is to at least do another half marathon {perhaps Disneyland half marathon again} or a marathon. If I do a marathon I think I will shoot for San Diego's Rock N' Roll Marathon in June. Do you think I could do it? I would certainly be running ALL of the time, ha ha. I love that it supports The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, I can't think of a better cause to run for!
2. I want to Conquer my new Singer sewing machine. I haven't sewed in such a long time and I have to figure out all of the gadgets and gizmos! Wish me luck, but I would love to finish my tee shirt quilt and make altered clothing.

3. Read more novels, specifically autobiographies. I am a bit tired of reading romance novels, they just make me have false expectations of BK even though he is Mr. Romance, lol. Right now I have these two novels on my book shelf that I want to read in the coming year among others.
 4. Become a yogi master or should I say yoda master? Ha ha, either way I LOVE yoga and would love to make more time for it. It is great for your strength, mind, and heart!

5. Take more photos and create journals and more for my Etsy shop OceanDreamsStudio. I am always so passionate about nature and love going on new adventures and finding new inspiring photos. Here are two photos that I just posted last night, check it out! ;)
Kind Horse Eyes 
Mountain Sunshine 

 6. Travel to new sites & locations because I have some vacation to burn! I am excited to tell you that BK and I will be traveling to Las Vegas over a get away weekend {yes, you heard me right} mid January! Whoop! We might see either Cirque De Soleil's O or The Blue Man Group, or both. You can get really good discounted tickets the night of a show right now. Or we might see their magic show...any suggestions?
I also really want to go back to New York City. I love love their sites and shows!!
7. Volunteer more and find more causes that I am truly passionate about. You might already know that I support International Princess Project.
8. Continue to overcome negativity & anxiety by being positive and showing hope and love wherever I go. I can't be perfect but I can try to be the best person I can be with God's help. 
9. Continue learning more about interior design and fashion {I'm taking two new classes this upcoming semester} because it just plain rocks and inspires. 

*last 4 pictures are from!

10. Spend more time with my far away friends and family if traveling allows. Oh and perhaps add a new addition to my family {no, not a baby!} ha ha. This little guy here, my dream dog, aka a Doxie to my new readers who may not know of my obsession.

These are a few of the many many pictures of Doxie puppies found at Puppy Find. So adorable!

So that about wraps up some of my 10 dreamer goals for 2010!! Can you believe it?! Actually, I've been thinking it has been 2010 for a while now, considering I work at a mag company and we are always working beyond schedule, ha ha!

Oh and the winner of the Perricone Cold Plasma giveaway is - Melanie! Congrats sweetie!
Please e-mail me your addy love!

What are some of your dreamer goals?

Have a fabulous New Year Ocean Dreamers!



  1. I love your list of goals. They are so inspiring! Good luck with all of them. My main one is definitely to do some more travelling.

  2. i like you list.. because i like blue man group... see you i hope read in my blog...

  3. Congrats to the winner of your fabulous giveaway!

    Your have great goals — I think you should do the Rock n Roll Marathon. I say this as one who sits at my computer all day working or blogging. The doggie is a must and Etsy is such fun. You and BK should come to Dunedin, Florida and stay at The Meranova Guest Inn (the B&B I posted about over the summer), but don't come between June and October (too hot). Blue Man Show would top my list in Vegas and my recommendation for a book is The Artist's Way.

    Happy New Year my sweet friend!

  4. Oh I love, love, love your New Year's plans Dreamer! It's so inspiring!

    And I love that first quote!

    Wishing you Happy New Year and I wish all your dreams come true!

    Much love: Evi

  5. The sewing machine one kills me. I need to use mine, too! It's brand new, and never been touched.

  6. i like that you changed it from resolutions to dreamer goals. resolutions are so last year ;)

    good luck with your goals. i would love to learn to sew too.

  7. I love your goals. I hate "resolutions" but I like this idea. I think you have inspired me.

  8. I love these goals...

    Let's do yoga together. I wanna learn how to sew too because I spend a ton for alterations.

    Happy New Year sweetie.

    I smile even when it's "raining"...

  9. Your hilarious. I love the Yoda part. I like that you have goals. It's so much easier to keep goals. I can't even imagine running a marathon. Good for you dear. I wish you all the best luck!!!

    I have soo happy to win!! =) I've been making this like Dolphin noise around my house for like the past 20 minutes. Thank you thank you!!!! =) I emailed you. =)

    Cheers to 2010!!! =)

  10. Great list. Have a wonderful time in Vegas!! I saw the Cirque show O when I was there and it was FABULOUS!!! If you have to pick one, that is definitely my recommendation.

  11. Happy New Year and good luck on that marathon!!

  12. I try not to set goals for the new year because I have a terrible track record. :/ I would like to run another half marathon, though. I stared back last week so I wouldn't be a New Year's cliche. LOL. Not that it matters. We'll see if it happens. I'll be looking forward to following your progress too. :)

  13. wonderful list my dear! I hope you have a fabulous new years eve and an even better 2010!

  14. Great list! I have not written any goals because I know myself toooooo well. Wishing you a blessed 2010!

  15. What a great set of goals! And a great idea to write them all down as a reminder, I am going to have to do that. You should absolutely do another half marathon!! You can totally do it! I love your #8, I am going to adopt it if that is okay??!! Hope that you have a wonderful New Year's, Chris and I are having dinner and game night at a friend's house. Fun!

    Talk soon,

  16. Ohh beautiful list , love to read it x) I hope they do come true ! Good luck ! Cute puppy anyway ! Haha . Happy new year !

  17. Seems like the perfect list for all of us. You are such a sweetheart now - don't know how you can be any better :)
    Hope the movie is good for you if you do get to catch it but wow how can that compare to dancing with your Mister? I vote dancing .....
    Happy New Year!

  18. Darling, I thank you for your love and support this past year when I needed it most. Your kindness has left me feeling blessed. You have made my first year of blogging a memorable one!! I am certain that 2010 will be an amazing year for us both. Enjoy the last day of the year and have a marvelous 2010 full of good health, happiness, prosperity, love and blessings.

    Love & Hugs
