FAVORITE MOMENTS | OCTOBER 2016


Hello, everybody!  

It's time to welcome November. I still can't wrap my head around the fact that this 
year is almost over. This has honestly been one of the most amazing years in my life 
so far. After I made a New Years resolution to make this year be one of the greatest, 
I haven't regretted that decision since. 

Even though today is the first day of November, I want to have a little look back to the 
most rememberable days and moments there was in October. 
Collecting memories is my favorite thing to do, so if you're new out here and haven't got 
a chance yet to see how I'm doing my monthly favorites, I usually tell about my favorite 
moments from the past month. 


1ST OF OCTOBER

This Saturday will always stay in my mind as one of the loveliest evenings ever. Me and
some of my work buddies, including our former boss, went to celebrate our little department.
It was a funeral to our little department that was torn into pieces during the co-operation
negotiations.
I had so much fun & I heard from the people who was there that they had fun too.
Our evening started with bowling and oh my goodness since last year's pre-Christmas party
I'm pretty sure I have gotten worse in it.
I realized that there must be something wrong in a way I'm throwing that ball, but well
- as a person who goes bowling once in a year casually and drunk - it really doesn't matter
how many pins I'll take down.
After bowling & our former boss kicking us all 6-0 in it, we had a table reservation in the
restaurant called Cantina West. I ordered fries as usual and I couldn't stop smelling what
my BFF/work buddy Mika had on his plate. He ordered a chicken burrito (how am I
remembering this? Pregnancy brain hello!) and it smelled amazing. Holy potato I wanted
to throw my fries at him and steal that burrito.
Later that evening our former boss also had a tequila tasting & well, you know what happens
when a person goes off to a tequila tasting and comes back as "I know everything about 
tequila!". It was so much fun & I learned a bunch of new stuff about tequila too, although
I was just smelling those different tequilas because I'm not in that kind of a place now where
I can yell "bottoms up!" and drink a whole bottle.


7TH OF OCTOBER

This Friday was one of the most wonderful Fridays in my life. We had our second ultra
scan at the hospital to see if Dino was okay. There it was, waving to us and was a total
show off.
The midwife said that this kiddo is the most picturable kiddo she's ever worked with and
then she asked if we wanted to know if it's going to be a boy or a girl? I was like, "hell yes,
I can't live with not knowing for the rest of these 5 months."
Now we know. I've just been avoiding to yell it out everywhere, I mean, we haven't told
anyone yet which one Dino is going to be. I'm a bit afraid that our parents & grandparents
will go crazy and buy everything for the baby and then we just have to stand there and
smile saying thank you and hide our real emotions towards to those things.
I mean, they can get crazy. There's at least an 110% chance my mother is going crazy, so
we might wait until Christmas is gone by so that doesn't effect to their needs to buy different
things in baby blue or baby pink. Just to avoid awkward situations later in life.

"Hey, where's that adorable pink Hello Kitty blanket I bought?"
- "Yeah, Dino pooped all over it so we had to throw it away.."
- "J, it's not even born yet."

^ I mean situations like this.


15TH OF OCTOBER

We went to visit my mom's place and stayed there for the night. I got to see my little
brother, I was joking my little sister about her going to church and asked if she had found
Jesus when she got back home.
We are in church but we just don't go there, we don't pray or well, we don't believe in things
like that. We just want our church wedding and free graveyard spot.
We're not a religious family at all and she was going to church just to get a stamp on her
little notebook - she's having her confirmation next Spring.
Had overall a wonderful weekend!


25TH OF OCTOBER

We went to see Twentyone Pilots over at the Helsinki Ice Hall and it was so wonderful.
I've actually got a post about it, so why don't you click here to read everything about it!


I had such a lovely October, how was yours?
