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?! 😂

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 fiancé moved in!) My fiancé 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 cliché, 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?! 😜

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 – I 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.

Our engagement

We got engaged the 9th of May 2015

My fiancé proposed in May, when he moved here, he wanted to spend the rest of his life with me, and I could think of nothing more amazing, so I said yes. We want to get married at some point, but haven’t set a specific date yet, cause 2015 have been so insanely busy, and 2016 will probably be very busy too, but all we know is, we don’t want anything huge, we don’t want it inside of a church, and we only want our closest family with us to watch the ceremoni and then elope to somewhere warm and fantastic for two week, and have our honeymoon. That’s a goal for us!

The ring, as you can see is here, and its from Pandora, a Danish brand, which means a lot for us, cause its so popular in England and then its Danish, so its a symbolic thing and I love the classic design, he saw it and just instantly knew that it was me, he have chosen perfectly and I can only say, that I’m spoiled rotten! The pictures are from May and June, the top one is from June, and the bottom one is from the day we got engaged, the 9th of May.

The day he traveled here, to move in with me permanently, he asked me to marry him, in our kitchen, I could clearly see how worried he was, it was cute, but in the end, he asked me, and I had tears in my eyes when I said yes. So we have decided to spend our life together!

He makes me a better me, I am stronger with him by my side, I set so many goals for myself that I never thought I would accomplish, but I did.

It almost broke my heart when I in August got told, that I did not have the required grades in math that I needed, even though I passed my oral exam, I did not pass my written exam in 9th grade, it was a very stressful time for me, and I got told that I had to pass a written math exam, so I knew I had to hire a tutor and start studying very hard, but he was there the entire time, and told me to fight for it, to never quit, because he could see how much I wanted this, and he was the one who gave me the confidence to set myself the goals.

I got a math tutor, I studied so hard and worked too, it was some hard months, but I went to the exam and I passed my math exam, I got into my education and I have spend six month working where I wanted so badly to work, I accomplished that, with his support and my own determination. I can thank him for a lot of things, and I have and will keep doing, he makes me strong enough to fight for the things I want. I can do anything with him by my side.

It’s been a while

What’s new since last?

Since you guys last heard from me, I was doing an internship as a caregiver, I worked there for six month, and I loved it, and with tears in my eyes, stopped the 24th of December, and am hoping that I can return as an assistant caregiver aka nurses assistant, or take the nurse education, and then return. I miss it so much already.

  • I’m engaged, and have been since 9th of May 2015
  • I passed my math exam for the caregiver education
  • I got accepted into the caregiver / assistent caregiver education
  • I know what I want to do with the rest of my life

I’m engaged you guys! I can’t believe it, the 9th of May my man asked me to marry me, and bought me this amazing ring from Pandora, its gorgeous and I of course said yes! I am now a ”bonus mom” to three gorgeous kids, two girls and a boy, and I love them so much! The youngest is four, (soon five in a few days), middle one is five and the oldest is ten. We have been spending Christmas with them this year in England, in West Yorkshire, Its been amazing! Christmas was so busy, but fantastic and I will get more into the Christmas in another post, full of pictures – but not of the kids, cause I want to keep them out of my blog, I don’t need them visible on any online media. But I will tell you all about that later on!

While I was working as a caregiver at the elderly home, I also had a math tutor, and was studying very hard to pass my math exam, so I could get accepted into the caregiver / assistant caregiver education. I then passed my exam the 25th of November and got my final results the 10th of December and got to know I had passed! So thankfully I am all set for my education, I cant wait!

I got accepted into my education the 10th of December, and got to know that I’m starting at the 29th of February, due to having so much Danish and English skills already. On top of that, I get about three month less in internship, cause I already had that with the job I just worked six months at, so its really fantastic, just what I needed, to get my education started quick and no hold ups.

Now I am set and know what I want to do for the rest of my life, I want to be a nurse, to help and support people, to treat and protect. This is an amazing line of work, and I know I am suited for it, cause I have seen so much the last six month, both good and bad and I am thriving, even though I have tough days, like everyone else, but I am loving what I worked with, its so amazingly giving, I cant describe it! I will also do a post only about my line of work and how my six month of work has been.

I will also make sure you guys see how our new year has been, its been a small new year, but amazing and cozy, where I was the cook and my fiancé was helping me, but lovely none the less!

Thank you guys, for reading along, Its nice to know your still with me, even though I have been very inactive, but I will try to keep more active from now on, now that my tutoring is over, my math exam is passed and I am waiting to start my education, during my education I will also keep you updated, and I will of course keep posting about make-up, products and beauty tips – like always!

See you online guys! x
