Happiness is… Winning Eurovision!!

And…. we won!!

I don’t usually care so much about these things but we are such a small country, most people have no idea about us and some of them even think we are some small part of Spain. I think we deserve to get a little love and for people to get to know us a little better. That’s why I’m happy. Not only because we have won an amazing contest with a pretty song by a nice quirky guy with a lovely sister, but because we have won a little recognition. Can you understand it?

Also, I sort of got into a Twitter fight hahahahaha. This girl or woman was bashing on all of the countries, all night long. It was either the clothes or the voices or the lights, she was just being nasty, so I decided to be nasty back. Not my personality and I ended up apologizing but I got mad that she said so many hurtful things about Portugal and was super mad because we had won. I lose my shit sometimes, just like everybody else.

My soccer team, which is probably the biggest team in the country also won the National Championship 5-0. A considerable part of the country is partying for one thing or the other. Maybe both haha. Thank God tomorrow is Sunday. We won The European Cup last year on a Sunday and MANY people didn’t show up to work on Monday. Some companies even closed because they knew people would be partying haha. Work har, play hard.

So, I’m happy today!! Really happy!!

I spent time with Rui, grocery shopped, baked cupcakes, ate good snacks, watched an amazing game and the Eurovision Contest, winning both!! Even if we hadn’t won anything, we had so much fun. I needed it. Really bad.

I hope you all had a happy day!!

A big hug!!

You may not understand the language (we’re the only ones not singing in English!) but the song is lovely! Listen and give me your opinion 🙂

Oh, the pope has left at 3 p.m.

Anyway, of course I’m gonna watch the game and the finale of the festival being super ambitious and hoping we can win both. I’m surrounded with snacks, bae and dog and very excited waiting for the results.

My Friday didn’t start very well, some family drama being responsible for it. I cried a lot and then I decided I wouldn’t take shit and would get up and bake a cake instead, ha! I tried a new recipe (apple and cinnamon cake) and used whole-wheat flour for the first time. The cake was delicious but, as usual, it didn’t grow. I have tried EVERYTHING, every single tip, different brands of flour, different brands of baking powder, different ovens, different programs on my oven, different cake pans, different recipes, different temperatures, different times. NOTHING works. My cakes never grow or, if they do, they shrink immediately. I’m begging for some new tips. Please!!

Oh, and that is not even the funny part.

I dropped half of the cake on the floor. Yap. And I couldn’t even apply the 5 second rule because I have a dog and there’s always dog hair on the floor. Oops. Whatever I didn’t drop, Mr.R gladly ate.

I’ve just made a batch of cupcakes for the very first time. 100% homemade coffee cupcakes with coffee buttercream frosting. They actually grew and taste delicious, although Rui thinks the frosting is too sweet. I followed the recipe and I think it tastes pretty good but I might cut a little on the sugar next time. Do you have a favorite cupcake recipe?

Oh, and you should see me frosting a cupcake for the first time hahaha. Not very artistic but I’ll eat it anyway. Too embarrassed to take pictures!

Mine look exactly as these… not.

I’ll be reading blogs while watching the game and the festival, so please stop by and say hello. So sorry I can’t share snacks.

Are you doing something exciting today?

Are you having a good weekend so far?

What have you been eating?

Do you like soccer?

P.S. We are already winning the soccer game!! 3-0

Love!!

P.S.S I’m actually catholic and am not making fun of the pope. Even if I was, he has a very good sense of humor and would probably laugh (he made a mother-in-law joke the other day. The pope!!)
