The dress

I have earlier promised pictures of the dress that my sweet friend made for me for my cousins wedding. Before leaving my parents place I forgot about it, and I just remembered before we were going to get seated at the wedding, so it went pretty fast, and well not the best picture of me, but you can still see the beautiful dress.

The wedding wasn't the best wedding we have attended, there were quite a few things that did not match our expectations. But we were seated at a table with 2 of my cousins, my brother, my parents and my aunt, and we made our own party.
A picture of the bride and groom, I love the picture she is seeking cover under her bouquet.

Now I'm just waiting for another opportunity to wear the dress again:) Hope you have enjoyed your weekend.

I was lucky to get the chance to review Storytel through buzzador.

It's a website that enables you to listen to audio books on your cell phone or your computer. It's simple to get started, though there search menu isn't the best.

We listened to most of the first book when we drove to my cousins wedding this past weekend. So the trip didn't seem as long as it usually does. Though having a toddler doesn't really leave much time for listening to books. Though this evening I did start a book while cooking... This must be the first time I kind of wished my commute to and from work would last a bit more than 7 minutes.

Overall I linke the site, though I would like a larger selection, though that might be larger if their search menu was better. So if you are in the market for audio books, check them out. If any of you are interested in trying it out let me know, I was given a few free "books" so my friends could try it out. They do have a little selection of English books as well.

A little quick update...

I'm still here, but life has been busy and I haven't got around to blog. I won't bore you with the details, but I will leave you with a picture of me and Jonas in Legoland last Monday, the weather was great and we had a blast.

You will also get a picture of a mobile I made for my parents neighbour. She is a daycare mum, and needed some decorations in her new playhouse. So since she is babysitting Jonas on Saturday when we are attending my cousins wedding, I figured that I would make her a mobile instead of a box of chocolate.

Our weekend has just started because tomorrow we are going to the zoo with Jonas' daycare. As I said we are attending my cousins wedding on Saturday (stay tuned for pictures of my new dress), so we are leaving for my parents place tomorrow afternoon.

Enjoy your weekend.

Baby, birthday and block party...

It's been a crazy week, well busy at least but also fun. On Sunday we visited some friends of our who just had a baby 2 weeks earlier. Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of sweet little Kaya, but I did get some pictures of the Giraffe and the blanket I made for her.

On Tuesday it was my birthday, and when I walked into the office on Tuesday morning this was the sight I was met by.

Don't I have the best colleagues? On Tuesday night we went out for dinner, and had a really lovely evening. Wednesday was a national holiday so I was just at work for a few hours in the morning to help opening the store. 

This weekend we have a block party, or more of a town party. There is soccer games, music, bouncy castles for the kids etc. We went there this afternoon/evening and Jonas loved the bouncy castle.  

 Tomorrow evening there is a big party we are attending. I'm working from 7 am till 4 pm both Saturday and Sunday, so I'm not going to party too hard. Though I will miss out on more of the games, but I bet Jonas and Frank will be at the bouncy castle most of the day tomorrow:)

Have a great weekend everyone!

On June 22nd we are going to my cousin's wedding. A friend of mine is making a new dress for me, the dress will be brown with a hint of pink. So what shoes should I wear, I don't have any dress shoes in either pink or brown... well I should write I didn't have...

I figured my wedding shoes had been in the closet since we got married, because when would I ever wear a pair of ivory satin shoes again? I have played with the idea of dyeing them, but so far I haven't been able to decide on the colour, probably because I didn't need any fun coloured shoes so far. 

So I decided to try to dye them pink... I got some Dylon textile colour, I made it my Saturday night project. I was a bit scared that they would turn out more tie dyed, or that the colour wouldn't stick to the fabric, but I figured that either they would stay in the closet in the boring ivory colour that I would never wear or in a awkward pink colour I would never wear, or I could be lucky and would turn out great.

It was super easy dyeing them, and I was pleasantly surprised, the result is really good, now I'm just a little nervous that they are not the right colour of pink. I have a little fabric piece from my dress to be, and it's not completely the same, but depending on the light they are pretty close. So on Tuesday I'm going to try the dress, so I will bring the shoes and hopefully I can use them.

Pink in concert

The concert on Thursday night was AMAZING... there were a little sound problems in the beginning but they worked them out. The show itself was crazy good, she knows how to entertain.

I tried taking some pictures with my phone, but let's face it, a cell phone doesn't take good pictures, and definitely doesn't take good pictures in those surroundings, but here is a few that I got, and as you can see we had pretty good seats.

I realised that my pictures would turn out pretty bad, so I decided to enjoy the concert instead, because watching her live can be recommended. She ended the show with the song "So What", where she was attached to wires flying all over the arena. I found a clip on YouTube, some guy was filming with his cell phone, and the sound isn't too good, but you get the idea:)
So if you ever have a chance to see her in concert, I say go for it! Have a great weekend everyone:)
