Birthday photos

 So I'm a little bit paranoid about having my pics all over the net, but I figured I owe it to you :) I know it's much more fun to "see" the person behind the blog. Besides, I'm 30 now so it's time to stop being afraid, lol. I'll be a brave girl and upload one of the pics as my profile photo. It's time to stop hiding.
I have a new hairdo on these pics - bangs and straight hair that frames my face. I've always liked this look on other girls and kept thinking: in my next life I want to be a girl that fits in hair like that. Well, after being so sick I thought to myself: who cares if it suits me or not, I want to give it a try. My hair grows freekishly fast, so it's not a biggie if I regret the cut. I decided to cut it and it actually suits me! I never liked my flat straight hair and my mom always curled it and dyed it blonde. It never stayed curled though no matter how much products we used. When I moved away from home I started dying it purple-ish and haven't been able to stop since then. So in my late twenties I finally started to make peace with my hair and liking it the way it is. It's superstraight and shiny so I never have to use a straightning iron and can abuse it as much as I want - it looks healthy anyway.Ok, so that was the history of my hair, lol.

Here's what we did on my b-day:

First we went to the movies (Percy Jackson and the lightningbolt thief) at 3.30 and afterwards to a bakery for a little snack...Hot cocoa with marshmallows, yum!

After that another movie (Alice in wonderland 3D) and then a fancy italian/spanish restaurant where we had a wonderful meal. I had tortellinin with parmaham, fresh parmesan and pesto. For dessert crema catalan with lavendel icecream! All of it was sooo good. And I let myself had a glass of coca cola. I haven't had one for almost three years now. I stopped because I found myself addicted to it and my dentist wasn't happy about it.

After the amazing dinner I didn't feel like going home yet so we went bowling:

where I actually won the last round!
Back at the house I had a wonderful cake that was waiting for me. My sweetie had ordered it from the bakery with my original name on it - it was even spelled right! It's the polish equvalent to Katherine or Katarina as it is in Sweden.
I also got some more presents. The best one was a daylight bulb! Now I will be able to take great pics in the evening/nights when I craft so keep a lookout for tutorials. Unfortunately it was broken so I have to get it exchanged tomorrow.

Have a great night and if you feel like shopping, Lacey at stamp and create  has a 25% off offer on all greeting farm stamps. She also has Kraftin' Kimmie and Whiff of joys. I just got myself a bunch...

Nice pictures and you must have had a very nice day!

There's a different name on the cake, though? Are you originally from another country?
