8 days, 4 hours and 25 minutes till Christmas

Yup I am counting, icelandic Christmas starts at 6 pm on the 24th. So in 8 days and 6 hours I will be sitting at my moms stuffed after eating our meal and started opening the presents.

I am trying to relax after the exam stress of the last 2-3 weeks. It is not going well, I feel like I should be doing something and it is bugging me. All this stress has increased my blood pressure, I am not to worried as it will go down again when I truly relax. But it also has my shoulders and whole body in knots and that is more annoying.

I also put on 4.4 pounds during exams, not to worry I have lost them all now just 4 days later, guess me drinking the traditional christmas ale (malt soda mixed with orange soda) by the barrel wasn´t helping. That and I and my friend ate 4.4 pounds of chocolate (konfekt oh so good assorted filled chocolate that we only eat during Christmas)

 We put up our Christmas lights and by we I mean my bf

 I couldn´t resist these socks

 I went a lil coo coo during exams

 trying to study and devouring that chocolate you see on the left

 I find lighting lots and lots of candles relaxing

 I was kinda glad sometimes to be stuck inside studying when the weather outside was like this

 I like flavoured lip balm just as much as the next person but these got me wondering if people really use them. Like they even had donut ones.

 My kid and I are going to put together a gingerbread house. He designed it all and now lets just pray that it fits together.

This is the traditional icelandic advent wreath. It has 4 candles, you light one each advent sunday and the first one is 4 sundays before December 24th. They each have a name but I cant remember them right now. I also squeezed my advent calendar in the middle. 


  1. I'm glad your exams are over and you have time to relax! European chocolate is the best, so I think you can be forgiven for eating 4.4 pounds of it! ;)

  2. So glad exams are over for you and that you get a chance to relax and enjoy the holiday :)

  3. Thank you for stopping in at my blog! I'm so pleased!! I visited Iceland last year and can't wait to come back. Yes, water water water. Got to get on it and get rid of this holiday gain!! :)
