Happy Birthday to me, I’m turning thirty-threeee 🙂

On Sunday I invited my mom and sisters for a lovely brunch and I got some useful presents for baby-boy Bruno and me. It was a lovely day, we had good food – lots of fruit, good bread, sausage, eggs, marmalade… and after the brunch the bubby and I looked at a very nice house to rent. We didn’t take it though seeing a big street was right next to it and that’s too dangerous for kids (I thought) – he thought it’s probably too noisy.

On my birthday, Monday the 19th, I took a day off of work and bubby and me went for a nice walk, had coffee and cake, looked at the stroller we ordered and in the evening we went out to eat.

I had my second prenatal class this week and we learned about contractions, it was quite interesting, of course 🙂

The evenings I spent baking. As it is my last week of work before my maternity leave, I’m bringing American goodies to work.
