Bieber Dreamer

in All Posts

Last night I had a dream that I was a professional Justin Bieber impersonator and used my skills to sing about sex education to middle schoolers. 


It was highly awkward when the kids found out that 1) I wasn’t actually Justin Bieber and 2) I was a woman.


Why can’t I dream about winning Mega Millions or going on a tropical vacation?  Why brain, why?


Breakfast was something to sing about:


In fact, Jack Johnson penned a song about my breakfast!


Let’s make banana pancakes and pretend like it’s the weekend, okay?


Topped with sunflower buttah and coconut.  Much better than gloppy syrup.


Going to squeeze in a workout and then it’s a full day at the clinic!


Are you plagued by strange dreams, too?

    This post should have come with a warning. I just squirted milk out of my nose laughing so hard- probably shouldn’t have been eating breakfast when I read this 🙂

  • gabriella @ embracement January 5, 2011, 9:08 am

    The last couple of days right when I fall asleep I have been having lucid dreams that I actively have to wake myself up from by thinking things such as “look at your phone” “you left the light on” “the door isn’t locked”. I’m 100% aware I’m dreaming and I’m always in scary situations! But….it’s so true how much can happen in a dream in such a short amount of time because I look at the time and only minutes have passed. Odd.

  • Amanda January 5, 2011, 9:13 am

    I go long spans without remembering my dreams and then suddenly I’ll start having crazy dreams that I do remember. I swear it has to do with certain foods I eat or something, haha. You could probably track that type of thing easy with the food blog!

  • Sarah @ See Sarah Graduate January 5, 2011, 9:13 am

    Love, love, LOVE Jack Johnson! Banana Pancakes was the first song that really turned me on to him a lonnnng time ago. Good choice! 🙂

    And the Beiber picture is hilarious!

  • Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin January 5, 2011, 9:14 am

    hahaha! That’s more like a nightmare than a dream. I loooove banana pancakes and that song!

  • Mrs. Muffins January 5, 2011, 9:15 am

    That picture is hilarious! I love that song (Banana Pancakes) and I love banana pancakes! Nom nom nom!!!


  • Amanda (Eating Up) January 5, 2011, 9:15 am

    Ahaha! So funny. And I always think of Jack Johnson when I make banana pancakes too!

  • Samantha Angela @ Bikini Birthday January 5, 2011, 9:15 am

    I had a dream that I was searching for a chestnut tree because I needed to eat chestnuts.
    I found one in the yard of the academie where I took piano lessons as a kid which was, in my dream, about to be bulldozed.

    True story.

  • Sara January 5, 2011, 9:16 am

    LMAO!! That’s hillarious! I, too, have the strangest dreams almost every night! Last night I dreamt I was in a polygamist relationship despite the fact that it’s only me, my boyfriend, and puppy living together…I watched too much Sister Wives last night I guess.

  • Amalfi Girl (EatRunHaveFun.blogspot) January 5, 2011, 9:17 am

    Hilarious picture. Gorgeous pancakes! I love how the sliced bananas peak through the batter. Must try.

  • Hope January 5, 2011, 9:17 am

    Love that song! I love Jack Johnson! Banana pancakes look yummy especially with the coconut on top!

  • Baking 'n' Books January 5, 2011, 9:18 am

    I need to sleep in order to dream! Syrup gloppy? NEVER! 🙂

  • Laura @ Starting Out Fit January 5, 2011, 9:19 am

    LOL! glad I haven’t been having Bieber dreams! but I did have an odd one the other night where I continuously found myself being bombed in a grocery store! … my fiance and I had watched 5 hours straight of Band Of Brothers before going to bed that day so that may have had something to do with it. 😉
    Those pancakes look divine! 🙂

  • Camille January 5, 2011, 9:20 am

    I always have weird dreams too! Yours might take the cake though. I wonder what the hidden meaning is? 🙂

  • Meghan@travelwinedine January 5, 2011, 9:22 am

    I have really stressful, night-long dreams like one the other night where I got a job as a dog walker but lost all of the addresses. I wake up exhausted!

  • Dee January 5, 2011, 9:22 am

    Oh gosh, you are so funny Caitlin! I have strange dreams too! One involves my baby brother being frozen in time (literally) in my wicked Aunt’s freezer. 😮

    Yeah. I don’t know either. Lol. 😛

  • the veg meg January 5, 2011, 9:22 am

    Haha! The other day I dreamt that I was decorating cupcakes with Snape for his daughter, after framing him for crashing an airplane into a silo filled with toxic chemicals. In a word: yes.

  • Paige (Running Around Normal) January 5, 2011, 9:24 am

    bahahah. I open my reader to your post, and bam! There you are, all beiber’d up. LOL

  • Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table January 5, 2011, 9:25 am

    LOL! Did you get mobbed by the little Bieber fevered kids??? You should have heard the dreams I had after Black Swan. Creepy!

    Sunflower butter may be the best thing since sliced bread. I’m convinced. 🙂

  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat January 5, 2011, 9:26 am

    Hahaha I love that photo Caitlin!! I spent hours over the holidays playing the Justin Bieber boardgame with my little cousins.. it’s SO HARD!!

  • Katy @ A Healthy Shot January 5, 2011, 9:27 am

    YES!!! I can’t have a nice, normal dream about getting married- last time I ended up turning into a power ranger right before the wedding and saving the world from pirates. ;-P
    I’ve never been Bieber though…

  • Halley (Blunder Construction) January 5, 2011, 9:28 am

    I had crrazzzy dreams last night too! They involved a sick cat and driving a car down a stairwell. Your Justin Bieber dream rebels my dream’s strangeness though.

  • VeggieGirl January 5, 2011, 9:28 am

    OHHHH yes, my dreams are always outrageous and nonsensical, haha 🙂

  • Whitney January 5, 2011, 9:29 am

    I am getting married in June so here recently all of my dreams have been about something going wrong at the wedding! AHHH LOL 🙂

  • Liz @ Blog is the New Black January 5, 2011, 9:29 am

    Hilarious picture!

  • Haya January 5, 2011, 9:30 am

    i think you win for the most hilarious and random dream ever!!

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) January 5, 2011, 9:30 am

    I love banana pancakes! And Jack Johnson! I had a weird nights sleep last night. I woke up with my hair down (I wear it in a pony tail since it is so long and my clothes a complete mess)…maybe it was a strange night for dreams?

  • Katie January 5, 2011, 9:30 am


  • Val @ Balancing Val January 5, 2011, 9:31 am


    What did you eat that fueled that dream girl??!!

  • Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman January 5, 2011, 9:33 am

    HA HA HA HA. That photo is awesome. Although, I think too much of your forehead is showing, you harlot, you.

  • Coco January 5, 2011, 9:34 am



    2 nights ago, I had a dream that Justin Bieber lived in my childhood home and was throwing a huge party that I attended…by riding my childhood bicycle there and “parking” it in the yard. hahahaha

  • Krista (kristastes) January 5, 2011, 9:40 am

    Hahahhaha this cracked me up. I only remember my dreams about once a month (if that). I wish I remembered them more often, even if I was a Justin Bieber impersonator!

  • Emily January 5, 2011, 9:40 am

    Haha this made me laugh so hard! My dreams are always just very bizarre and usually a weird conspiracy thing…as a psychology grad student I try not to spend too much time thinking about what they may mean 🙂

  • Sarah January 5, 2011, 9:42 am

    And this is why you’re my favorite blogger. Not only do you dream about this. Not only do you admit to it. You make a photo illustration to accompany it! SO funny!!

  • Melissa @ Be Not Simply Good January 5, 2011, 9:43 am

    That is hilarious! I hardly ever remember dreams, but I have had some weird ones lately, maybe not as funny as yours.

    I <3 Jack Johnson.

  • Little Bookworm January 5, 2011, 9:43 am

    Funny dream! Love the banana pancakes! 🙂

  • Katie (Sweet Tater) January 5, 2011, 9:44 am


  • Alison @ Around the VeggieTable January 5, 2011, 9:44 am

    Love that song 🙂 I ALWAYS have weird dreams! Lots of times I dream about tornadoes. I wonder if that means something…

  • Stephanie January 5, 2011, 9:45 am

    Hahahah! That picture is comical. My dreams have been seriously crazy and vivid lately. I’ve been drinking a lot of herbal tea before I sleep so I wonder if that’s part of it?

  • Dani @ Body By Nature January 5, 2011, 9:46 am

    I had a dream last week that some of my teeth fell out! I woke up a bit freaked out!

  • Freya January 5, 2011, 9:46 am

    LOL that’s the best dream ever!
    I sometimes get dreams where I argue with someone, wake up and think it’s real. Not all that long ago, I woke up crying cos I’d hate a dream fight with my mum and I felt awful about it! That was weird…I’d take your Justin dream anyday!

  • Ashley January 5, 2011, 9:48 am

    I have the weirdest dreams of all time. My boyfriend tends to die in them :/

  • sarah k. @ the pajama chef January 5, 2011, 9:49 am

    what a crazy dream! and it’s weird… but i love the jack johnson song, but i hate bananas in my pancakes! i love all other fruit in my pancakes though…

  • Stacy @ Every Little Thing January 5, 2011, 9:58 am

    I don’t usually have dreams that crazy! haha

    Have a good day!

  • Julie (Food & Other Things) January 5, 2011, 9:59 am

    Lol! The first picture is amazing!I can never remember my dreams very well.

  • Maren January 5, 2011, 10:01 am

    love that song 🙂 I had a weird one last night that I had to take a present to my bf’s aunt’s in KC, which is 3 hours from us and I followed his uncle there the whole way. And I remember walking around their house and trying to jump out a window on the third floor? Sooo weird!!

  • Sarah @ Long Legs Healthy Life January 5, 2011, 10:01 am

    Tea, meet computer screen. Best picture ever.

  • Ashley (The Vegetable Life) January 5, 2011, 10:05 am

    I have strange dreams all the time… but usually when I wake up I know that my dream was wierd, but I can’t remember exactly what it was about!

    my 6-year old goddaughter has some serious beiber fever, but I think she too would be devastated to find out if he was in fact a women impersonator! Haha

  • Susan @ Mom Swim Bike Run January 5, 2011, 10:05 am

    Now that’s a FUNNY dream. I had a dream once I swallowed a giant marshmallow, I woke up and my pillow was gone. ba dum dum!

  • Darcy @ She Sings at the Table January 5, 2011, 10:07 am

    I had final exams recently, and before one of them I had a dream that a rabid monkey got loose during the essay portion and bit me on the leg. I was bleeding all over but refused to let anyone take me out of the room until I finished the test. Yikes! Fortunately, the real exams were uneventful 🙂

  • Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg January 5, 2011, 10:08 am

    LOL…ohhhhh my.

    Our semester starts next week, and I keep having nightmares about my syllabus not being complete and my students yelling at me. Typical.

  • Gabby (Quest for Delicious) January 5, 2011, 10:09 am

    I don’t remember a lot of my dreams but when I do, they’re usually pretty weird or silly. Yours cracks me up.
    Side note – one of my favorite jack johnson songs! (:

  • alli January 5, 2011, 10:10 am

    haha! that’s awesome! i always have weird dreams. last night i dreamt that i went back to work but realized i forgot my baby at home so i was going to drive a tractor home to get him…why i couldn’t drive a car, i have no idea!? my husband on the other hand, has completely normal dreams-things that would really happen in real life with people we know.

    can i ask what the ingredients are in your sun butter? i tried making my own yesterday, but it doesn’t taste that good!
    i just used raw sunflower seeds, evoo and salt.

    • Caitlin January 5, 2011, 10:11 am

      My has palm oil in it – it’s from trader joes!

  • Allison @ Happy Tales January 5, 2011, 10:10 am

    Your dream cracks me up… bet you are glad it was just a dream! Also, LOVE jack johnson, and banana pancakes (both the song and food). Good choices!

  • Jenifer January 5, 2011, 10:14 am

    Oh dear Lord. I just cant find the words.

    Have a great workout and day!

    PS- We (dh and me) were cracking up at the “Jaws” puppy pics last night. DH says it looked like someone just told him a dirty joke and he was laughing.

  • nicole January 5, 2011, 10:14 am

    That’s so bizarre! Last night I wasn’t plagued by strange dreams, but rather by insomnia. I woke up 4 different times until I finally gave up on sleeping, so annoying.

  • rebecca lustig January 5, 2011, 10:15 am

    i had a dream that my friend and i were running the half marathon and her knee cap popped out. i woke up all squeamish and confused ha

  • Jessica M January 5, 2011, 10:16 am

    That pic is grrreat.

    Yeah, I have weird dreams a lot. Last night I dreamed that I had college classes that I had forgotten to take and hadn’t graduated. I graduated college 2 years ago and have those dreams a lot.

    And the night before that I dreamt that I went to lunch with Katheats and her husband. LOL.

  • Arlene @ Adventures in Weight Loss January 5, 2011, 10:17 am

    I have some weird dreams — being a writer, I suppose it’s an occupational hazard. But I don’t think any of them could top that!

  • Emilie @livetoeatrunforfun January 5, 2011, 10:19 am

    I almost choked on my toast when I saw the picture of you as Bieber!!! Thanks for the morning laugh!

  • Ashley January 5, 2011, 10:23 am

    LOVE banana pancakes! Those are some of my fave!

  • Kara January 5, 2011, 10:25 am

    I love that Jack Johnson song!

    I had a dream about owning a fire breathing iguana last night. I blame my repeated reading of the Fuzzy Yellow Ducklings to my baby.

  • Gill (snaxandthecity) January 5, 2011, 10:25 am

    Haha amazing! Why does the brain do these things!?
    When I was younger I had a recurring dream that I was being chased around the supermarket by someone trying to throw talcum powder on me, which then caused me to grow a nappy. I know. Random!!

    • Beth @ Will Run for Books January 5, 2011, 10:32 am

      What is a nappy?

      • Gill (snaxandthecity) January 5, 2011, 11:50 am

        ooh i’m not sure what you call it in the US….i think diaper!? it still is an equally random dream, considering you can’t “grow” a diaper!

  • Kristina @ spabettie January 5, 2011, 10:25 am

    awesome, just awesome. <3

  • Maddie (Healthy Maddie) January 5, 2011, 10:25 am

    Hahaha I love your dream! I always have crazy dreams as well. Yum banana pancakes! Your making me hungry.

  • Beth @ Will Run for Books January 5, 2011, 10:31 am

    I always have the strangest dreams…I wonder what makes us have them…

  • Rose January 5, 2011, 10:35 am

    That photoshopped picture killed me.

  • Jessica January 5, 2011, 10:45 am

    You crack me up!

    I had a dream the other night that I helped my little sister wax an incredible beard that she grew all of a sudden.

    Dreams are crazy.

  • Kris January 5, 2011, 10:46 am

    That’s a wild (and funny)dream. Mine have always been out of control which I find weird because I’m very quiet and reserved. I guess all the craziness comes out at night.

  • Leanne (For Health's Sake) January 5, 2011, 10:47 am

    Because I’m planning my wedding right now, I have these ridiculous dreams every now and then…. it’s frustrating!

  • Jennifer (keepitsimplefoods) January 5, 2011, 10:50 am

    Yes! My dreams are always nutty.

  • Rachel January 5, 2011, 10:50 am

    Haha what a hilarious dream! Banana pancakes was a code word between my friends in college when we wanted to go engage in an activity that rhymes with poking smot.

  • Emily @ Write Twenty Eleven January 5, 2011, 10:58 am

    Wow…. haha! I also plagued by strange dreams, so I understand! Love Jack Johnson, too 🙂

  • Natalia - a side of simple January 5, 2011, 11:00 am

    As Rachel Zoe would say… “I DIE.”

  • Erica January 5, 2011, 11:09 am

    YES! I had the WEIRDEST dream last night. So, I’ve been watching 30 Rock season 4 and yesterday I watched an episode about Tracy Jordan wanting to have a daughter. So in my dream, Tracy Jordan was pregnant.. Not his wife.. He was pregnant. And I was his OBGYN. I swear I didn’t make that up. However, I did wake up thinking “WTF?”

  • monicanelsonfitness January 5, 2011, 11:11 am

    I understand, I am the Queen of Strange and Akward Dreaming!

  • jenny in new york January 5, 2011, 11:15 am

    I think we found a new look for you to try out! That bieber swoosh looks just beautifulll on you haha

  • Lauren January 5, 2011, 11:15 am

    All the time! I’ve never had Bieber dreams, but I had one the other day about some airplanes, village, and poodles? I woke up very confused.
    Jack Johnson has my heart, especially with banana pancakes.

  • Ann @ Day by Day January 5, 2011, 11:18 am

    Your dream is hysterical!! I almost never dream. People always say if you don’t dream, you’re crazy-guess I’m crazy!

  • Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine January 5, 2011, 11:21 am

    Oh I have THE MOST BIZARRE DREAMS. The best part is that bloggers are in them more and more frequently, too. I kind of love it…except when I dream that I’m marrying my cousin and then he jilts me and a certain blogger (who shall remain nameless so I don’t sound like a total creeper) is the one who sneaks me out of the reception and drives me to Wisconsin. Yeah, weird.

  • Kacy January 5, 2011, 11:28 am

    I almost always have terrible dreams. Last night I dreamt my Dad had to kill me because I had a terrible skin disease given to me by a witch. WTF? I think I must secretly be a terribly negative person to never have good dreams. Sometimes they’re really funny though when I wake up, so that’s always fun. Your dream is hilarious.

    I love that Jack Johnson song. And banana pancakes.

  • brandi January 5, 2011, 11:28 am

    that is hilarious! I’ve had some crazy weird dreams lately, too. The other night, my dream was that I was on a date with Ben Foster (in the new movie, The Mechanic, but I used to watch him as Tucker on Fast Forward) and he was super nervous and adorable.

    Then last night was just strange and I think it involved one of my exes. Weird.

  • Joanna@ Drizzle of Sunshine January 5, 2011, 11:29 am

    I have such vivid and strange dreams almost daily!! Once I dreamt I was friends with Donald Duck and I angered him because I made fun of the fact that he doesn’t wear pants! And just last night, I dreamt my hubby kissed this girl who annoys the hell out of me!! Man…. I wonder what it is. I have a dream dictionary and I’ll look it up! haha

  • Chelsea @ Strawberry Sweat January 5, 2011, 11:44 am

    I’ve had so many weird dreams lately, but I can never seem to remember them after I wake up! I just know they are weird. Maybe someone is tampering with my mind like in Inception?

  • Kelly January 5, 2011, 11:44 am

    Hahaha not going to lie, that’s one strange dream. Did you eat something weird before bed?

  • Lindsay @ The Ketchup Diaries January 5, 2011, 11:45 am

    Not sure if the dream or the Photo shopped photo is funnier. Hilarious!!

  • Ali @ Ali on the Run January 5, 2011, 11:46 am

    HAHAHA! That is the best PhotoShopping I have ever seen. So funny.

  • Anne @thefitbridesmaid January 5, 2011, 11:47 am

    I always have crazy dreams. Last night I dreamed that I had a baby, but I forgot to continue pumping, so I ran out of breast milk. Then the baby grew up and was bitter, because we had ignored him for years.

  • tricia January 5, 2011, 11:49 am

    random, but I had a bieber dream last night too! He kept hitting on me and I was like “go away, I could go to jail for just talking to you”. Creepy kid 🙂

    yum, those pancakes look great

  • Jolene ( January 5, 2011, 11:52 am

    Funniest dream ever – Oh my – I LOL’d when I saw that picture!!

  • Alicia January 5, 2011, 12:07 pm

    THANK YOU for making my day! Your dream is hilarious! And bc of you I made today Jack Johnson day on my pandora station. Happy Wednesday!

  • Tulip January 5, 2011, 12:09 pm

    Haha that made me laugh out loud but he really would get through to the tweens. Banana Pancakes is my all time favourite song. Great as an alarm tone as well!!

  • Tulip January 5, 2011, 12:09 pm

    Haha that made me laugh out loud but he really would get through to the tweens. Banana Pancakes is my all time favourite song. Great as an alarm tone as well!!

  • salah@myhealthiestlifestyle January 5, 2011, 12:10 pm

    I love banana pancakes 🙂 yuuuummmmm

  • Teresa @ Teresa Tastes & Travels January 5, 2011, 12:12 pm

    NICE dream, there! Also, NICE photo-shopping. 😉

    Banana pancakes sound diving for breakfast. Since I’m trying to make the most of my last month working from home, I may just join you (it’s 9 a.m. here. Totally acceptable).

  • Michelle January 5, 2011, 12:15 pm

    I had to do a double-take when I saw the picture of your face on Justin Bieber. So funny! My dreams are oddly realistic and I often wake up thinking that the events in my dream actually happened the day before. Sometimes I do really fun things, like travel or shop, and then I get bummed when I realize that they were just a dream.

  • Laura @ Backstage Pass January 5, 2011, 12:21 pm

    Haha – that’s one heck of a Photoshop job. What a funny dream!
    I sometimes have bizzare-o dreams… often involving my work, boss or famous people. I need to start jotting them down when I wake up, I have a hard time remembering the details otherwise!

  • Stacey January 5, 2011, 12:22 pm

    Last night, in my dream, I slept with the college-age Patrick Dempsey. What’s that all about?!

  • Johanna B January 5, 2011, 12:22 pm

    I’ve been having weird dreams lately but none quite as weird as yours 🙂

    Your pancakes look fabulous!

  • Ella January 5, 2011, 12:29 pm

    LOVE the photoshopped pic!
    I’ve been having really bizarre dreams lately – but now that I’m trying to recall some of them I can’t lol. But I’ve woken up every morning verrry confused!

  • Ali January 5, 2011, 12:31 pm

    Dreams can be so funny sometimes! I wonder what that one signified. And love Jack Johnson! 🙂

  • Kelly January 5, 2011, 12:33 pm

    Wow! Your dream was so specific and odd. I have weird dreams like that too. Like when i dreamed I was going to start making my own honey and sent off for a “start your own bee-hive” kit. What the heck does that mean, anyway?

  • Kelly January 5, 2011, 12:33 pm

    Wow! Your dream was so specific and odd. I have weird dreams like that too. Like when i dreamed I was going to start making my own honey and sent off for a “start your own bee-hive” kit. What the heck does that mean, anyway?

  • Maryann January 5, 2011, 1:25 pm

    LOVE Jack Johnson! I have weird dreams if I eat right before I fall asleep.

  • Sarah (Sarah Learns) January 5, 2011, 1:56 pm

    haha, that’s a strange dream for sure! when i was 7 or 8 i had a recurring nightmare that i had to carry a bathtub that was full of packing peanuts up the stairs at my parents’ old house. i would wake up crying all the time because of it.

  • erica January 5, 2011, 3:36 pm

    OMG. i was delivering some forms at another office, sitting in their waiting area and saw this and had to use all my composure not to bust out laughing like a mad woman when i saw that caitlin beiber picture! buahahahaha.

  • Heidi - apples under my bed January 5, 2011, 4:46 pm

    I LOVE that JJ song. and I also love banana pancakes. Your dream made me lol 🙂 I had a nightmare last night 🙁 and yes i do get straaaaange dreams! I used to have a recurring nightmare that I had a tattoo of a pale green running bib with a red number 3 on my chest! weirdo.

  • Jennie January 5, 2011, 4:48 pm

    Caitlin — get ready for SUPER crazy dreams when you get pregnant!!! (keep thinking when, not if, no matter what other comments say…) I’m in my 5th month and the dreams are both vivid and bizarre! I also wanted to tell you that today I saw my first OB notes (that were posted by someone else)! They were in the bathroom at the local university…nice!

    • Caitlin January 5, 2011, 4:49 pm

      I like everything about this comment!

  • Tessa January 5, 2011, 5:26 pm

    i never remember my dreams, ever! dangit

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin January 5, 2011, 7:10 pm

    LOL! That picture totally cracked me up.

    I have seriously weird dreams too. One time, years ago, I had a dream where a block of cheddar cheese tried to convince me that it was my mother. I don’t think I’ll ever forget it because it was just SO bizarre!

  • Lacey @ Lake Life January 5, 2011, 9:57 pm

    Mwahahaha, you look like Beiberstein in that pic!

  • Amber K January 6, 2011, 1:40 pm

    I don’t usually dream that much, at least not ones I can remember. But I’ll be dreaming of those banana pancakes now!

  • suzy pepper January 6, 2011, 5:45 pm

    That is the best dream ever. My mind is blown.
