Ice Ice baby…

31…oh my!

Sooooo…yesterday was my birthday.

31.

That feels weird!

Somehow I thought I would be more “grown up” when I was 31 back in the early twenties 😉

But the day turned out to be quite amazing..and it all started with my good friend Stig bringing me these yummy cakes at work. Yes, he was up at 3 o´clock last night making these white chocolate dreams with passionfruit filling and rasberries, thus managing to put my 3 very favourite things in one package.

Stig – these are the best birthday cakes I`ve ever had (sorry Mom! ;-P )

On the tram home from work, this very proper old man came and sat next to me – just having a conversation about the weather and how nice it is to finally have spring arriving. It was a very small thing, but somehow it made me happy and it made me think of my beloved mormor that passed away 2 years ago.

You are sorely missed and have been on my mind all day!

the two best moments of this day however – were the phonecall from my Dad, and Mambocitas rehearsal  including flowers, singing and a huge group hug.

You girls are the best!!

 

oh blissfull weekend! :-)

So after a couple of stressful weeks with rehearsals, work, dogs, meetings, traveling to Gothenburg for the congress and the show – I was in need of some serious relaxing and this weekend I finally got it.

So Friday night was spent at home, phone turned off, and lights made calming and relaxing by these cute lanterns I bought from Perfect Home

I`m gonna buy more hooks and hang them individually in different heights like they are here – but with more space between them. They castvery nice shadows on the wall and makes this corner come to life (nothing really happened there before – just a plain white wall)

I also had the time for the first time to sit down and really sketch this week – and I love it so much. Cannot wait to start constructing patterns and looking for fabrics this week for all the costumes. The girls are gonna look fab!!

Last night I also had my first night out with the girls in ages…we had a blast as always – the night was filled with catching up, laughter and fun! Oh – and a lot of red lipstick 😉
