So tired.

I am so tired. So so so tired. Cant sleep good, been working like crazy in this house, Isabella isnt sleeping good, shes like, full awake until late, I have to go to bed with her and stay so she can sleep. Since my stuff in the apartment is like non-ending, sometimes she goes to bed at 3... and wakes at 10-11. Kills me, seriously. Van needs to start helping me more or I will collapse -_-
Just arrived from the BVC, Isabella took her BCG vaccination today. We also measured and etc, she has 10.460kgs and 74cm. Made lunch and now I have to go do the laundry... im so tired. So so so .

Hello! (:

Good morning! I woke up sick today, coughing and with a stuffed nose... hate when this happens. Now my nose is drooling ): gotta go to Apoteket and buy something for this cold. :(
Today I have laundry and tomorrow its cleaning day! Fredag my sister in law, Sonja and Sofia will come here again and we will bake something :) and play ultrastar too! I still didnt download the new stuff from Gotta do it today :p
My sister in law just told me my mother and father in law can make the cake and one of the aunties can decorate pretty much good! Wow, so that means Isabella's birthday party cake can be the way my mother wants *.* will tell her that today. XD We have been wondering about cakes and such for her party, and we decided to get a style like these, still undecided. Care for some feedback? :)
Option 1
Option 2
Option 3

Note that the decorations wont be the same as those cakes... just the 'form' :) Decorations will be chosen AFTER the form is chosen and will be discussed prior. Since the theme is pink and hearts, gotta be of pink/white colors and of course with hearts. Will see if I can find some Hello Kitty toppers for decoration as well, or maybe not toppers but printed on rice paper :)

Isabella's 1st kallas. Planning this huge party! (III)

So, this is the next post. Lets talk some about food. I have been wondering here about what to serve in her birthday. Since her family is huge (The list goes far... will post it here later) we need to make ALOT of food. Was planning to ask my mother in law and my sister in law if they could help me baking/cooking some stuff.
Heres what I have been planning.
This is called Spring Rolls :) my mother in law can make really good ones.. gotta ask my sister in law if she can ask her to make some for me :p.
Sushi/Sashimi. I guess Van's aunt knows how to make it, but I believe Shyh or Shin can also make it. Anyhow, it would be for sure a great add to the party. It tastes damn good when its well done :)
Fried Shrimp... a passion ♥
Now, Brazilian party stuff.
Cheese balls! Yummy and fabs! My friend Suzana gave me the idea of adding Oregano to the cheese to taste even more better. She gave me the receipt, gotta test it tomorrow :)
Brazilian Chicken Drumsticks. With catupiry cheese inside too. Its like heaven *.*
These are rolled sausages. A good option since hot dogs are overrated :p Its the same thing but more luxurious and tasty. We roll the sausage on the bread dough. :d Then we put inside the oven to 'bake'. :3
Chicken mini pies. Can also be made of shrimp, dried and salted codfish, cow meat, etc. Quite common in parties in Brazil, but takes quite a long time and its a hard work for the dough :p maybe maybe...
Brigadeiro. <3 Needless to say how heavenly it tastes, eh?
Coconut Kiss. Old passion :)<3
More to come :p will afk a few minutes. Gotta clean the dishes :p

Isabella's 1st kallas. Planning this huge party! (II)

Here it goes the next post about Isabella's birthday party. Yeah, im spending quite a long time with ideas and checking stuff on the internet. Cant miss any possible idea AT ALL, her bday has to be perfect! So that says me and my mother, who is sponsoring me with some of this crazy stuff :)
Now, we will talk a bit about the food decoration ideas and stuff that I really want to have it on her birthday. I know I wont be able to have everything I want. But at least its not wrong to dream about, neither we need to pay for it :p
Hello Kitty themed cupcakes! So yummy and fab! The 'top' seems a hard task to accomplish, but nothing is impossible for a crazy mother like me. :p The Hello Kitty figures are 'plastic' rings that you can buy for around 5$ a pack with 24. (I guess, cbf looking up right now :p).
Another example of a Hello Kitty themed cupcake. This one looks so cute <3
The non edible ring :)
Another idea: Hello Kitty cookie! Easy to make, and looks fabs as well! Form is sold on ebay for quite a cheap price too! :)
Another example of Hello Kitty cookie form. Liked the first one though :p
This is the form you can buy to make these stunning cookies and etc. You can also make bentos with it i guess O_O wow!
A Hello Kitty bento. WOW SO AMAZING! *-* wish I knew someone so creative and skilled that could creater one for me. Well, guess I have to skip this one, eh? :)

Isabella's 1st kallas. Planning this huge party! (I)

Nothing better than a blog to start planning my baby's 1st birthday party. Celebrating birthdays with alot of decoration is quite normal in Brazil, and I wont change my mind about that, even though I am in Sweden. I want Isabella's birthday to be as perfect as possible, so it will be full of decorations. In Brazil we looove birthday parties and we have some 'special' dates: 1 year (cute one), 15 years (something like Sweet 16 in US/UK), 18 (University) and after graduating. Brazilians DO love partying, but I am an exception. Used to love having parties until 14. After that, used to ask money instead, so I could go out with friends and eat pizza, dance, etc. :p good old times. <3
Well, I will be post my planning stuff here. The chosen theme is Hello Kitty, so I wont measure efforts to make it a real HK party, even tho its just for a baby. $$$$$$. :S
This is the picture of the Theme. Hello Kitty Hearts. You can see some heart-shaped stuff :)
This is a better preview of the theme stuff. Fabulous! But I wont buy everything off of it. Basically just the cup and the plate. Invitations will be sent by email or so, the cap is useless, napkin will be bought in Sweden and it will be a normal pink one (Hopefully I can find em) and same for the fork, hope I will find a pink one :)
This will be the surprise box I will be giving out to kids after the party. Kids, read children below 10 years old. Will be filled with godis and some other stuff I still didnt decide.
Napkin holder that comes with the package. It also includes a pack of stickers that you can be creative and do it on your own way. (:
2 normal sized pannels that will be decorating a wall. They have around 60cm each I guess.
The Candle. Candle is already here with me, my friend Samanta bought it and brought it straight from Brazil :)
Main panel that will be next to the main table and surrounded by the rainbow 3-color arc. :)
This is a decoration for maybe the main table or each table of the people invited. Dont know yet, have so many ideas/suggestions. But maybe it will be on the main table, together with the Hello Kitty plush bears :)
This is what I call 'rainbow arc balloon. In my case, it will be 3 colors, pink, baby pink and white. There are many videos on the internet explaining how to do it, but my friend Ivaniele knows how and offered me help :)
