A new year

Hello hello,

so, as you know, it was my birthday yesterday – I had a nice and quiet day though. I’m not big on the whole b-day-party thing, haven’t been since I was about 10 years old. 

I’m officially 29 now…. Which means I only have 364 days left in my 20’s… A scary though actually.

When I was in my late teens, I always pictured myself married with kids by the time I was 30. Boy did THAT not go as planned.

I’m happy with my life though – but I figured that I’d leave the 20’s behind with a bang!

….. I haven’t really figured out what that ‘bang’ is going to be yet, but I’m thinking about a lot of different things. Doing a 30 by 30 could be possible, but we’ll see.

Anyway, just a small post, letting you know that I survived my b-day – now it’s off to the postoffice. There’s a packet waiting for me containing som Vanish products. I’ve always wanted to try it, and when I got the chance through Buzzador (more on that later), I jumped to it!

Take care 🙂

Happy birthday to meeeee

Okay, so my birthday isn’t until tomorrow, but already I’ve gotten the BEST presents!

First off – my boyfriend is amazing! This past Saturday I was told to leave the apartment at 5PM and not return until I got a text or a call from him. He told me it wouldn’t be for a couple of hours so I left with a little money and went to a cafĂŠ where I ran into a few friends. Fast forward to 7PM and no text… So I called and asked when I could come home and was told ‘not yet’. I kinda figured it had something to do with my birthday present and then thought that whatever it wasn’t couldn’t take THAT long….? So time ticked by and I was getting hungry! Around 8.30PM I called my dad and asked what he was doing, explaining my situation. He was at our summerhouse (not as fancy as it sounds, trust me) painting, so he couldn’t help me.

Finally around 11PM, A called, saying that he was done and that he would come and get me. I was beyond happy – but mostly to get home and get some food in my stomach.

So we get home, I get something to eat and then A asks me if I want to watch a movie or go straight to bed. I choose option B and opens the door to the bedroom….

And this beauty was greeting me! The man bought me a closet!! We haven’t had one since we moved back in February and it was driving both of us crazy.

It is absolutely perfect! He really knows me 😀

I’ve starting putting our clothes away but it’s a pretty big project – A has a LOT of clothes… and shoes! A lot more that me 😉

Moving on to the second thing… I got an email today from the school I applied to… and it pretty much says that I got IN!!! I have to go to a prepatory interview on August 14th, where I’ll get more info on the whole deal and stuff, but it says I’m in!! I did a happy-dance right there in the car (so it was more of a happy-butt-in-seat-dance) and I’ve been smiling ever since 😉

So to further congratulate myself, I decided to buy myself a little present. The laptop I’m using right now sucks – the battery is dead, which means that I have to have the power connector plugged in all the time – that is just not good enough for what I’m about to embark on.

So I kinda bought this little thing….

Now, I KNOW a lot of people are against using iPads for school, but I did some research and this will do just fine. I’ll be buying a cover with a keyboard of course – anything else would just be silly – and I can’t wait to get it! I bought it online, so I think it’ll take 4-5 working day for it to get here. But once it does, I’ll definately do a review of it.

Phew, that was a loooong post! I’ll sign off now, gotta go to bed early to get up early tomorrow and bake some strawberry cupcakes as some friends are coming to celebrate me 😀

Take care!

My birthday wishlist

Yes, yes, I know what you’re going to say: “Maria, you should be studying! Shame on you!”

But, in my defence – I have been really productive – I’m pretty much done! Granted, I have been taking a lot of breaks, but my head has been killing me all day – so I needed to give my brain a few time-outs.

Anyway, I was browing the interweb and I saw this blouse/sweater/something-to-wear-on-top-so-you-don’t-walk-out-the-door-half-naked-and-scare-the-crap-out-of-people-thing.

I think it’s really cute and totally not something I’d ever really buy… But something about this really speaks to me….maybe it’s the price…hm…

Anyhoodles, my b-day is less than a month away (28 days but who’s counting?) and figured that this would be a great thing to add to my b-day withlist.

Sooo here it is….!

 

 

I want – I really really really w….would like to be the proud owner of this little furry fella 🙂

Take care!

 

 

Oh… and I’m a small btw… just in case someone thought I shouldn’t live without this… (hint hint nudge nudge) 😉
