Happy Merry Christmas!
Happy Merry Christmas to all of my beloved readers!

Swedish-themed Christmas tree at my mom's place  // My very own Christmas tree at my bf's place :D (I bought it and I had to carry this little super heavy thing and decorated it so it's my whole pride.)





I know I'm late and a bad blogger but I really really had no nerve to post anything before. I was stressed out from work at 22th + 23th (luckily I have 24/25/26th of Dec OFF! Lucky me! :D ) and I had a lot to do on the actual date of Christmas. My parents are separated, so I usual switch between mom's and dad's place later in the evening. This year was a bit different: I kinda moved in with my boyfriend (not officially but I was home once or twice in 2 months so I guess you can say we kinda live together.. I write this on his couch while he plays video games 2 meters away from me. xD") so I was at my bf's place on Christmas (I never ever saw my bf on Christmas, this was a first!) then I went to my boyfriend's parents place, stayed there for 2 hours, then Niko drove me to my father's place where I stayed the whole evening and I came home to my mother's place at about 1 AM. So I visited 4 different places, this is a new record even for me! I had no Christmas feeling at all, however I had a really really nice day. Got amazing food with amazing people and it's always nice to be at my dad's place, I don't get to see him that often. 

As for the presents, I already got my Christmas present in November because my mobile phone broke and my mom didn't want me to be without phone for a month (mostly because we talk everyday via our phones :x ) I reaaaally really wanted a Blackberry for a very long time and this is what she and her wife got me! I was SO happy when I first held it in my hands <3

I looove my new phone. And I really wanted the white one, don't really like black phones at all. Actually I wanted a smartphone without touchscreen so the BB was a perfect match. It took us some weeks to make it work though because apparently a BB does NOT work with a usual internet flatrate, you need to book an optional BB option. Only, that my provider did NOT provide service for Blackberries... long story short; we managed after 3 weeks to change and now I can enjoy my phone as it should be ^-^ Since this is such a huge and expensive present, my mother said I would not get any presents on the day of Christmas. Well, she ALWAYS says that. I pretended to believe her.  [........]

...but she couldn't resist so I got this amazing purse with real leather in gold! Actually there's a story behind this purse:  When I was at home some weeks ago, this purse was laying around and I was like "Oh mother, what a beautiful purse you have, where did you get that?" (My mother and I always exchange our purses and bags, that's why. ;D ) And she was like "Oh, Michi just got it for me as a present, isn't it nice?" Present's from Michi are special so I would never dare to ask my mother if I could have that special purse. Yesterday, my mom and her wife told me that this was only a set-up to find out if I would like that purse or not! AS IF I WERE THAT PREDICTABLE. I was shocked, honestly, that they would set me up on my own presents like that! :D

Despite the fact that they said I wouldn't get any presents I also got quite some other stuff which was mostly chocolate and other sweets that will destroy all the good things I had in mind for my body. Maybe I'll move that to New Year, not possible I'm losing any weight this last week in 2012 :'D


I also got a voucher for my hairdresser which I really loved! I try to go to the hairdresser for weeks but I simply ran out of money this month. With the voucher I'll only have to pay half of what I do pay usually :) I also received some money from my father and my grandmother and Niko and I received several stuff for our apartment like pretty colorful new glasses, a ton of stuff to eat and of course much much more chocolate! 

Christmas dinner in my living room my mom and her wife prepared for Niko, my grandma & her partner and me :) Everybody got a box of chocolate as dessert!


I have to say I really feel blessed for the loving surrounding I have. I do love my family, although splitted, and it was nice spending time with anyone. Tomorrow we'll have the last Christmas dinner at Niko's parents place again. I love this place; it's a palace-like house with a pond and a fireplace and gosh, it's so amazing HOMELY there (is there a word like homely in English? Not sure. Too lazy to look it up.) Plus, his mother is going to make my favourite winter dish I requested <3 (In case you wondered; it's a mustard roast. Delicious!) I can't see any heavy dishes anymore after this period of time, I need some fresh noodles or salad with rice, that'd be wonderful. My next days will be filled with a lot of stuff like working, preparing for New Year party, meeting with my friends to have a late Christmas dinner (but at a restaurant so I can get something more light than the usual heavy German Christmas stuff...)

What did you get for Christmas? Did you celebrate it at all? I hope you all had some wonderful days and enjoy the last days of this year :) Next post will be about the Secret Santa Project I took part in! Merry Christmas!

Much love & See you soon,

Sam

oh, hello there. i'm yasuhiro mochizuki and i'm the cool kid who made this layout. i'd rather you not attempt to take this code and alter it or take this code, strip it down, and use it as a base code. if you really need a base code that badly, feel free to send me an email with what type of base code you need and we can talk about it. that said, i can't take credit for absolutely everything here. so here are all the dope resources i used here: all of the fonts used in this layout can be credited to google fonts save for calibri, which is a system font. the social media sidebar links were created using an icon font from we ♡ icon fonts. most scripts used can be found through a good google search, except for the script that gives the page it's tabs; i don't remember whether i hand coded that or if i found it through another blogger. if you're privy, you can find me predominantly on twitter and occasionally on my blog. toodles!
