Friday Five! (Birthday Edition!)

1.) Today is my birthday! I am a whopping 28 years old. I'm excited because Justin has made reservations tonight at a restaurant in Georgetown. But I'm also scared because this means I turn 30 in two years. Eeek!

2.) I know, I know. I'm a Polyvore addict! I made a birthday wishlist...

Out of all of these items, I think I'd like the "Star Trek: The Next Generation" boxed set the most. Clothes may go out of style, but Star Trek is forever! *Cue Justin laughing at me*

3.) And here are a few more things I wouldn't mind getting for my birthday:

* A fairy godmother
* A good health insurance plan that won't break the bank
* A tub of Nutella
* For Democrats and Republicans in Congress to stop hating each other
* A Ragdoll cat to cuddle with and that won't make me sneeze
* A book deal :o)
* A voyage on the Starship Enterprise with Captain Picard as my personal tour guide

4.) On the writing front, my YA dystopian is chugging along slowly. I absolutely love writing the beginning and ending of a novel, but I hate writing the middle. It's so hard! Must. Slog. Through. It.

Still, I'm excited about the book's premise and I'm doing research on it by looking up info on Catholic monasteries and fertility treatments. Random yet fun!

5.) And lastly, thank you for reading my blog! I really mean it. I love reading your comments---it always makes me laugh and smile. I hope you guys have a great weekend!
