THIS WEEK

Good evening my loves.
So we’re well into the week I’d say, but I thought it’d be fun telling you how our week looks. Who knows, maybe you wanted to know:P

Monday.
The start of the week, a work day and making sure we have everything we need for the coming days.
Monday we went to our job and kindergarten, and then when I picked her up we went to the supermarket to get things we didn’t have in the refrigerator.
I hate throwing out food, so I try to buy as little as I can and plan ahead, but that isn’t always too easy.
I feel bad though when I have to throw something.

Tuesday.
Today I tried being as on time as I was yesterday, (you know all about it if you read this post) and when we were done eating our breakfast I really thought we were on time, but suddenly the time went by really quickly and I was sure all was lost.
I calculated completely wrong because I ended up being 15 minutes early, haha, but at one point I was almost ready to call in a bit late.
Hours into my workday I got a call from the kindergarten that Olivia wasn’t feeling like her normal self, and was lucky enough that my sister could get her for me.
By the time I was with them again after work they told me that it seemed like she had tricked the people in her kindergarten or something, because she’s been her normal self all evening and happy as a clam.
Haha, she can be really sneaky, so maybe she just wanted to go home? Silly girl.

Wednesday.
On Wednesday we wear pink.
(If you know, you know.) Haha, maybe not. ..or maybe?
Tomorrow I have a day off from work and plan on delivering Olivia to her kindergarten and then meet up with my sister for a day of some shopping.
I really want to buy Olivia a Christmas calendar with a small present for every day of December, and thought tomorrow would be the perfect opportunity.
Then when picking her up again, we’re going to eat dinner with her grandfather.

Thursday.
Today I have a longer day at work and although I would be able to pick Olivia up before kindergarten close, I feel like picking her up at around 5pm is way too late, so I arranged for my sister to pick her up earlier.
90% for her sake, but also for the kind people working there. I can easily put myself in their shoes when it comes to opening hours and watching the time as it’s nearing the ending time.
It’s always better to pick up early if you have the opportunity.

Friday.
I have no special plans for Friday, but feel like having a really quiet day after work and kindergarten at home with some dinner and playtime.
We normally see our family very often the week Olivia is with me, but sometimes I feel like just being her and me. Quality time really is the best.

Saturday.
Saturday this week is a workday for me, but I’m so lucky to have the best family that is there for me and can take care of Olivia while I need to be away.
Fortunately I don’t start work before 1pm, so I get to spend all morning together with her.

Sunday.
Nothing but relaxing and spending time with O before delivering her to her father.

PINK

Hi you guys. Happy Monday. Has it been a good one?
For me it’s been good, but hectic. It’s no joke having a child and a job, getting ready for that job, making sure she’s ready for kindergarten and that we both have our lunches as well as the right clothing and stuff, and then get us there on time. But I’m proud to say we made it with me having 10 minutes to spare by the time I was in my uniform. *Pat on the back.* The not so good part this morning, was the fact that I set my alarm to 05.45am just to have enough time for everything:P Normally an early morning isn’t a problem, but as you know I’ve been sick lately, and last night was the first night in what feels like forever that I slept through the night without waking up coughing or hurting in my throat. That figures, doesn’t it? So after posting this and taking a shower I plan on going to bed to get ready for tomorrow’s new round. I like it though.

The building above is a cute building in Kristiansand. After starting my blog and taking more photos I see pretty buildings all over the city, which I normally wouldn’t have noticed at all. I love that. Have a good night when it’s your turn. Kisses.

BUSY BEE

Good evening loves. How are you? As you know and could probably figure out I’ve been super busy. The last few weeks I’ve been juggling taking care of Olivia, starting a new job and holding my head over water because in the midst of this I lost my voice and haven’t been feeling well at all. And I just want to thank my entire family who helped. I couldn’t have done this AT ALL without your help – so thank you! Family really is everything<3
Tonight is the first night where I feel like I can relax for real since October 16th. I’m still sick and my cough won’t go away, but that doesn’t matter at all when I’m having so much fun at work. I refuse to be on bedrest, and therefore it’s nice to be able to have this evening all to myself to refill my batteries. Hopefully I’ll sleep off my stupid cough and virus that I have now, and be as good as new tomorrow.
Talk soon, okay? Kisses.

WHAT TO GIVE AWAY THIS CHRISTMAS

(in collab with nordicfeel.no)

It’s been a few days – how are you? I’m beyond excited and just as much so tired. I’ve been spending loads of hours at our new Zara store and I’m having so much fun. The tempo is super fast, there’s lots to do and it’s been great. I’m so happy I got that job.

Hei mine fine  -hvordan har dere det? Jeg har det så bra og jobb går så det suser. Jeg er så glad jeg fikk den jobben!!

On another note Christmas is slowly approaching – eh, or maybe not slowly. In under two months we’ll be sitting together with our family celebrating Christmas, which will be so nice, but before that we have a few things to do, don’t we. Like prepare 😉 Are you like me, or do you already know what to get your loved ones for Christmas? I feel a lot of pressure from myself when trying to decide what to get people, and end up buying almost everything within the last days before the big day. Luckily this year I’m having a small collaboration with Nordicfeel.no where they list great Christmas present tips for every family member, and there are already a few things I’m buying for sure there. Not to mention the long wish list I created for myself :p You can see a small amount below. That biotherm day cream is my holy grail. It’s the best day cream I’ve tried and need restock pretty soon. And right now I wouldn’t mind the Glow Booster as well. Hope you find some great tips if you’re stuck with ideas like me. Oh – and one tip that I have is to think about what the person you want to buy a present for is passionate about. Makes for the best presents!

Over til noe litt annet så nærmer jul seg med stormskritt. Om under to måneder sitter vi sammen med de vi er glade i og koser oss med juletider, noe jeg gleder meg masse til. Men før det da må det forberedelser til. Som for eksempel å kjøpe julegaver. Jeg har faktisk ei venninne som allerede er ferdig, men sånn er ikke jeg i det hele tatt. Jeg burde kanskje allerede ha begynt, men jeg legger alltid for mye press på meg selv, og tenker noe bedre kan dukke opp før jul, så jeg lar være å kjøpe før i siste liten. Heldigvis har jeg et lite samarbeid med Nordicfeel.no, og de har lagd en superfin guide til tips til julegaver. Jeg lagde en liten ønskeliste for meg selv også jeg – som dere kan se nedenfor. Eller, det er bare en liten del av den. Fant mange flere godiser.

Et lite tips fra meg til deg når man skal kjøpe julegaver er å virkelig ha personen man kjøper til i tankene.
Hva elsker den personen og hva tror du gjør den personen skikkelig glad. Det er alltid de julegavene som blir best! 

Olivia isn’t feeling well today, so in approximately an hour we’re going to the doctor to get a check up and just spend the rest of the day together at home. Hope you’re having a wonderful day. Kisses.

Olivia hadde en helt forferdelig natt i natt, og har antakeligvis halsbetennelse. Vi drar til legen straks og får sjekket og så satser vi på at alt blir bra med litt medisin. Håper dere har en fin dag. Kyss.
