Life, love and the future!

Lately I am trying to get ready for my education and trying to get our home clean and good looking! Strange – but true none the less..

Let’s just be honest, I have never ever been the stay at home wife kind of woman! I am messy and a typical “oh where did I put that stupid remote, I know it’s here somewhere” kind of person, everywhere I seem to go, I leave a trail of mess behind me, and I don’t mind much, but I got older and more aware of it, and I am actually changing – who knew?! ūüėā

I never thought that day would come, where I keep thinking that I need to do the laundry else it would pile up, or I would remember to put all my make-up back in perfect order, else it would look cluttered and messy, but lately I do. (Or ever since my fianc√© moved in!) My fianc√© have had a very good influence on me I have to say, he has made me see how lovely our home can look when it’s clean and organized and he is good at reminding me to just put things back after using them, it’s much easier than running around cleaning at the last minute, before guests arrive, or when you get too annoyed at the clutter!

I think being engaged to him has somehow made me more grown up, more determined and less messy, and yeah it sounds so clich√©, but he makes me into a better person. 

I make little to do lists now, I make grocery lists, I make sure to always plan ahead on shopping so we never need anything badly and I feel amazing for doing so! Who the hell am I and where is Mia?! ūüėú

We have started to sort out food, so we do a “cooking list” where we write what food we wanna cook and on what day, it’s gotten so much easier to prepare meals and shop for them, that’s the God honest truth.. Thank god for lists! (Oh dear I’ve become like my mother!) 

So right now I am passing time at home, waiting for the 29th of February, by cleaning and making my little “stay at home wife” lists! I am not perfect at it, but I’m getting there.

Do you guys have any strange lists you make? I am thinking I might need more lists in my life, cause it keeps you organized and I want 2016 to be the year of organization and calm, and my lists makes me more calm and a lot less stressy and forgetful – who dosnt what that?

Here is a few pictures of our home right now, we are constantly redecorating, because we wish for a different look in our bedroom and living room right now – we have started to save up for a new bed as we speak, cause the one we have now is terrible!

   
Our new Danish designer table, lamp and chairs! The chairs are pretty well known in Denmark and are called the 7 chair from Arne Jacobsen, the table is a Fritz Hansen and the lamp is from Fritz Hansen too. Now we just need some more pictures up on the walls, but it starting to look very cozy already.

 

My fiancé changed the paintings a few months ago, so now my bedroom screen painting is in the living room and vice versa, it really suits it a lot better! The lamps are old Japanese lamps and my sofa is white leather РI know white, but I love it. It looks so good now after we got the floors sanded down in the hallway and the living room.

My new lamp

The lamp I was talking so much about has been bought!

I bought the larger model, wich is 45 x 45 cm and are going to be over my dining table in the living room. It is truly beautiful, and the plastic the ”leafs” from this lamp is made of, is no harm for the environment. No bad toxins and unhealthy plasctic. I feel all good about that kinda! The guy who makes these, are very young, he is about my age.¬†He designed this one himself, and he¬†inherited this company from his grandad, wich also made many¬†beautiful lamps. It looks so much like a waterlily, its just beautifully made, and easy to just set up yourself, and you can buy different colours. The¬†”Leafs”¬†also¬†comes in a black, and a tan at the moment, soon they will be in a lot of different ones he said. The sizes will be different too, so very soon, you can buy one thats called 35¬†x 35 – perfect for the hallway, or something like that. I thought this guy deserved to be mentioned in here, cause he was very honest, dident¬†demand that¬†you bought the lamp, told me the prices had went down, enstad of cheating me, and he seemed very passionate about the lamps. People who enjoy their work, gets to be very amazing at it, this just shows¬†excatly¬†that! Thumbs up!
