If you follow my blog you’ve read about a surprise trip I was given for my birthday. I only found out where I was going when I got to the airport early Thursday morning of last week. And just as I had guessed and hoped for, it was London.
I was going with my sister and one of my best friends lives there, so I know it was gonna be a great trip. What I didn’t know was that one of my other best friends would show up too. Actually I guessed someone else I knew was coming but I couldn’t ever guess it was Dina. Not that she wouldn’t do this for me but because it was Valentines Day weekend, and she made me believer she was spending it with her boyfriend. He even was in on it, texting me about restaurant ideas for V-day.
Hello to all the new readers and followers. And welcome!
But, as some of you might know, I was given a secret trip as a birthday present. That trip is now only a week away. Until now I’ve been sure it was either London or Sarajevo, leaning more towards Sarajevo but now I’m not so sure anymore. All my family and friends are keeping quiet and not saying anything. Secretly I’m hoping it might be a destination I haven’t visited before, like Dublin or Marseille.
I guess I’ll just have to wait…
A picture of my brother-in-law and I from last summer. I invited myself to his 30th birthday surprise trip to London that my sister organized. Oh, maybe he’s coming too…
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.
Here is one pic from the party, the only one posted on Facebook by Dina. I was so busy being the host I didn’t have time to snap pictures or selfies. I can’t even believe I don’t have one single selfie from the party. That’s crazy! But, I do have a bunch of professional pictures that I’m going through at the moment!
Will do a post later on and show you…
I had my friends Dina and Ado over here for a bite to eat this evening. I’m surprised Ado even showed up because there are rumors flying around that we don’t even like each other. This is super funny to me…
As soon as they arrived we went to get pizza and then back home. I’m still super sick but it was nice to leave the house for a few minutes as the restaurant is just around the corner from my house. Back home we ate and had some cake before we all fell asleep on the sofa. Dina worked all day and then took the train here, it’s almost a four-hour journey. Ado didn’t sleep last night and neither did I because I’m sick. So yeah, a nap was really nice. They were considering staying the night for a while but because it’s Ados birthday on Sunday and they have plans tomorrow they went home.
I got the most beautiful birthday gift, a pair of Guess earrings that I’m absolutely in love with. Not gonna show any of my gift until my big party next weekend. Then I’ll do a post/video.
They also got me this beautiful cake, Visa is my nickname!
And since it is Ado’s birthday on Sunday, we had to sing happy birthday…I’m sure he wanted to cover his ears as he is the singer and we’re definitely not…
Yesterday was my birthday and it was an awesome day! A lot of people sent me wonderful birthday messages and also flowers, a bunch of flowers. I went to work for a little while and brought my co-workers cake. A friend took me out to lunch and then last night I had some friends over. I knew they were coming over but I wasn’t ready for the surprise. When I opened the door they started singing and presented my with a cake with 30 candles on it. There were so many candles on it, it looking like a damn fire…LOL…I do have a video of it but I’m choosing not to post because I’m choosing to respect their privacy.
We had so much fun and they ended up staying until around 1AM.
This was only celebration number one. There will be a few more before the big party next weekend.
A lot shades of pink
Flowers from my family ❤
Such a great surprise!
I couldn’t blow out the candles because I have a really bad cold at the moment and my friend was making me laugh while I tried
A huge thank you goes out to Ami’s mom for making me this wonderful banana cake
Sorry if there is so much talk about my birthday here on the blog but I’m in the middle of planning and also I’m super excited for it. Although I already have a dress to wear I can’t help but look online for dresses because it is an excuse to shop.
Here are a few I found on ASOS (the one I have is also ASOS)
Let me know which one is your favorite!!!
The invitations for my big birthday bash were sent out this morning. Only one person has seen them so far, Dina, because she helped me with them. They are so me…in so many different way and were made with love. All my favourite people are getting them in the mail this week or the beginning of next!!!
