24h in the bed

Hello from the bed! Känner mig lika hängig som den där blomman… Im feeling as poorly as that flower… I think the flu hit me yesterday. I couldn’t even watch tv. Then you know you are sick for real, haha. Compared to that I’m much better today and the tv is now on :) I’ve isolated myself in our bedroom though, I do not want the rest of the family to get sick.

We finally got rid of our cement mattress (for real worst mattress ever, my ribs were hurting when I tried to sleep on it). Now we got a lovely one from SleepNumber. Perfect for us, with a control I pick my number and hubby his, from scale 1-100, from soft to firm. Smart! Also new in here is the picture, from Saatchi Art.

I hope you a staying healthy!!

Renovation update

IMG_2886 (1)

Right now in Sweden! I’m in love with this add on ♥ It was a balcony before, and we decided to lengthen our living room and make space for a spiral stairway.

Jensa our builder is so good – First of all he is really talented, plus he has great taste. It’s often I say ‘you make that decision’, because it’s not easy being so far away from the renovation. He’s also honest and smart, he tells us no sometimes when he thinks it’s too pricy and not worth spending the money. For this part for example, he first asked a company who builds ‘glass houses’ like this, but they wanted a shit load of money… so he told us ‘I’m building the frame myself and install the windows and have the roof company wrap it in aluminum (that matches the new roof). Said and done!

A door will be installed up there that will take us out to our roof top/patio, that is next on the list.

 


A room with a view!

Happy Valentine’s Day my sweet followers. We have been munching on these Valentine’s ‘Semlor’. I didn’t eat any Semla yesterday on Fat Tuesday… and that’s not ok. Normally I bake my own ones, but these are from the Swedish cafe ‘Svenska’, located on Maple St in Birmingham. Yum!

Right now – Home made pizza in the making, so that will be our dinner tonight!

Beautiful winter

Winter wonderland!! Do you like winter or not? I do. Or I really love that we have four seasons!

We walk to Eddie-Bo’s school every day. It’s literally just around the corner and takes four minutes. So nice to be so close.

A perfect place to sit down with a cup of coffee!

And show my nails. Polish ‘Less is Norse’ by OPI, just so you know.

We just got back home from a Redwings game. Eddie-Bo reminded me it was a very long time since he got to see a game and it’s true. All games are late, plus he is so busy with his own hockey. But I’m glad we went down tonight. Hopefully the boys won’t be too tired tomorrow.

Lots of marble

1G6A4128-2

There is so much I love about our American home. This marble fireplace is one of my favorites. It’s a real statement piece in our master suite, that divides the sitting area from the bedroom area. I also love how it matches the marble we have in our master bathroom, kitchen and butlers pantry. It puts it together if you know what I mean!

Oh my. I’m so tired. Last night was great and it got pretty late. And today has been a busy day with hockey and skiing. I took the boys all by myself skiing, just about 40 minutes away from home. Puh, lots of work but we had so much fun. No meltdowns, high five! They did great and I’m so proud of them. You never know, next time might be different :)

Now→ bed and an episode of Vikings!

Hi from a snowy Birmingham!! It has been snowing a LOT, and yesterday all schools were closed -snow day is what they call it. It surprises me every time. I think that happened one time of all my school years in Sweden :) But, I’m not complaining. Me and the boys had a fun day. We went bowling and went to see the new movie Pete the Rabbit! It was so good and we were all laughing a lot. My favorite James Corden, from Carpool Karaoke, is the voice of Pete :)

Today we had hockey early in the morning, than some of my girlfriends with kiddos came over, and now I’m saying hi to you while the boys are sledding, and tonight we are going out for dinner and drinks!!
