Today I had my birthday celebration (well, not the real date today but the real date is on a weekday so, yeah) and of course I decided to wear kimono.
I took a few photos of my outfit before the guests arrived. I couldn't take so many photos though because my brother kept interrupting and telling me to do something else... blah. Oh well, the few I managed to take are all taken with the help of a mirror because yeah, no photographer.
This kimono is a semi-light shade of purple –with lots of small white dots all over it– but as some of us know purple is a bitch to photograph its true color – it looks quite a bit lighter and like it has gray tones in the photos while it doesn't...
Also, guess what kaku obi? *drum roll* The wine red one, of course; but this time I had originally planned to use another blue one, but then mom came with her "don't you have anything else?" comment while I was tying it in the hall and I showed her the wine red obi instead and she was like "use that one instead". :'D
Oh, and one thing, please excuse that band on my wrist. It's actually the ticket from Närcon Vinter (an anime convention in Sweden) and I haven't taken it off yet because it's still pretty recent and I like keeping these on for some time, as memories.

I had invited a few very good friends –like my best childhood friend from early school years– and we had a sort of gamer party! We played Nintendo Wii and Gamecube and had a blast! I don't see these friends very often so it was a lot of fun to spend some time with them again. I must say none of these friends really knew each other from earlier but we all still got together really well – it was nice to see that everyone got along.
I don't have so much more to say than that it was awesome. Oh, and before the guests came we decorated the birthday cake on the morning and it was about to fail at some point so mom raged at the cake and I couldn't hold myself from cracking up.. xD Luckily we managed to save the cake so it didn't turn into a complete disaster!

What's not so yummy is that I've eaten way too much cake, candies, chips, lemonade and everything else and now I don't feel all that well... xD Oh well, it's worth it, days like these don't come everyday.
That's all! Sayonara!
