I spent the weekend spring cleaning except for a movie date, we saw Insurgent, with N and lunch at the grandparents house on Sunday. The struggle is real, let me tell you. I have way more clothes, bags, shoes than I can fit in my tiny walk-in-closet.
How was your weekend?
Selfies while I waited for my friend to pick me up
Once again I’d like to thank everyone for the flowers, cards, FB messages, phone calls, SMS messages, blog comments, presents and for being there. You’ve all made my birthday super special and given me an amazing start to the new year.
Your love means everything to me.
I have to respect people’s privacy but here some pictures of the people who I know won’t mind.
Can’t even believe the year of 2014 has come to an end. It flew by super fast and here I am reminiscing. I love the fact that I have this blog, it allows me to look back at the good and bad times. It’s life and it goes up and down. That’s what this year has been for me, up and down. I’ve had some great moments and a few bad ones as well. Thankfully more good than bad, many more good than bad. I’ve learned how to say No and stand my ground, I’ve also learned to put myself first in certain situations. I’ve traveled and spent time with some amazing people. I’ve realized even more how much my family means to me and how much love is there. Overall it’s been a great year I must say because I choose to think about the positives instead of negatives.
I’m looking forward to 2015 and what it has in store for me. I’m turning 30 in seven days and that is a huge milestone in itself.
I wish my family, friends, my blogging friends and everyone else around the globe a happy and prosperous 2015.
I’ll end this year of blogging with some of my favorite pictures of 2014.
What amazing things three days with family can do!
I came home last night feeling rested and refreshed ready to take on the big bad world. This weekend was just what the doctor ordered for me. My heart is full and my body and brain rested. Chose not to blog while there to give myself time to enjoy it to the fullest. And that I did…
I got to spend some real quality time with my parents, went to see my aunt twice, had my cousin and his family over…the only bad thing about the weekend is that I only got to see my sister for like an hour…
Yeah, family time was what I wanted and that’s what I got.
Now, it’s back to business!
The trip didn’t start out very well, I was in traffic for about 20 minutes before even leaving my city limit.
It’s been a super busy week at work with meeting left and right. It’s almost time to get away and enjoy some family time.
I spent the evening with Ami, her mom and brother last night, it’s always fun. I came home from work, jumped in the shower and headed there. Came back home around 9PM and watched a few episodes of Chicago Fire, season 2, before bed!
Spent the evening yesterday hanging with some faves. First I stopped by the grandparents house for some nice conversation and a cup of coffee. Since I wasn’t hungry they made me take my dinner with me that they had prepared especially for me. So sweet. After that it was time for some shopping with Ami. Picked up a trench coat looking think in navy but Ami took it. She’s going away for the weekend (as am I) so she wanted to wear it and I let her…That’s what best friends are for!
So, as some of you might now I’m gonna be turning 30 years old at the beginning of 2015, more precisely January 7th. On January 17th I plan on having a birthday party. For the last few weeks I’ve been putting the planning off but now it’s back on as I’ve just confirmed Ado&Dino to play. Sure I know the guys and we’re friends but the fact that they are choosing to spend the evening making my party better is awesome!
It is now time to start the hardcore planning and getting the invites out ASAP. And because I’m having a lot of people out-of-town coming in for the party I need to deal with the sleeping arrangements as well. Thankfully I have some great people around me, willing to help.
The hardest part of this whole thing, for me, is the guest list. I’m a very social person and I have friends all over, some people might even be flying in from different countries for this party. I’ve chosen to invite only the people really close to me, that I talk to and that have been there for me. So if someone who thinks they’re getting an invite doesn’t, it shouldn’t be a total surprise to them.
As the new year approaches and the big milestone of turning 30 I’ve become less stressed about what people think of me and I’m living life for myself therefore I don’t have time for petty bs, to be honest with you. If you think I’ve done something to you that’s unfair it’s probably because it’s a reaction to something you did to me…But let’s all be grown up about every situation we enter and life will be great. I think we can all agree on that…
With friends and family around, that’s when I’m the happiest!
Friday afternoon my mom, dad sister and aunt finally came to visit. It had been almost 2 months since I’ve seen them last! We started the weekend off with coffee at my place before heading to Västerås! The ladies along with my grandma, Dina, Ami and some other dear and familiar faces saw the play Ja, Mahalusa. It was super funny and we all enjoyed it…!!! After the play we went for some coffee. Saturday started off with a nice breakfast and then some shopping. Later that day we had lunch at my grandmas house and then picked up Dina and A then headed to my house where Ami and S were waiting. Pre-party while the ladies got ready and then we headed to Norrköping to see Dino Merlin…the king of Bosnian music. Such a fun night!!!! Sunday was a very lazy one considering we only got about 4 hours of sleep. Woke up just before Ami and her mom arrived. Ami cut my mom and dads hair while we all hung out. We threw together some lunch and after that everyone left. I was gonna go by Amis house that evening but I didn’t, I was too tired and went to bed around 9PM.
My friends and my family are the most important people in my life, without them life wouldn’t be worth living.
