Quick salad

1G6A5924

Tonight’s dinner – Salad, with baby spinach, arugula, tomatoes, mozzarella, leek, sugar peas, cucumber and walnuts, with some olive oil, salt and black pepper on the top. Quick and easy! Don’t think I’m this healthy all the time. I ate pizza for lunch :)

I like this bowl from Ikea and…

Also like this big boy like crazy, that came by to check the outdoor fridge while we ate our salad on the steps. What a beautiful day it has been!! So nice to end the day out here after another sporty day. Hockey game for Eddie-Bo and soccer game for Oliver!

The bed is now calling and a few episodes of The Crown. Well needed after a fun and late night out yesterday. The dance show was amazing!!

Our master bathroom

There are so many things I love about our house, our master bathroom is for sure one of them. I started to design this over six years ago when we built the house, and I could do the exact same bathroom over again!

This was a week ago and I was so tired and not feeling good at all, as you can see in my eyes, but I decided to go to the girls dinner as planned and I’m glad I did! Sometimes you need to push yourself :)

Time for me to go outside and play hockey with Oliver in the finally warmer weather!

Happy weekend!!

As you know I’m very passionate about interior design, and love to pick out everything that comes with that. But, when it comes to plan a yard my head can’t get that straight! However I found these all lovely pictures at Pinterest today! I’m trying to get some inspiration for our renovation house in Sweden. It’s a big job and we’ve hired a landscape architect to help us. The problem right now, I want it done as soon as possible, but at the same time I don’t want to rush anything and than regret what I picked… I feel we need to be home and pick out all the material… that means we have to live in dirt for a while in the summer, before they can start the project. Probably worth waiting for though… or?!

Pool and snow

Yep, this happened yesterday! It’s snowing and my pool guys came to open up the pool :) We are so ready for warmer days!!

And the power finally came back after two full days… only good thing about a longer power outage is that I now have an empty freezer. I made myself a promise – from now on I will only keep a few things in there. All food from the fridge I could keep outside since it’s been so freaking cold.

Have a great day!!

No power in the house

Sunday in our house and we have no power. No fun!! Cozy for a bit with fireplace and candles. But it’ gonna be chilly soon,  it’s freezing outside and the weather is nasty. I’m thankful for great neighbors though, that shares a cord from a generator so we can charge phones and use the coffee machines etc. Also thankful for friends that have power, wifi and dinner ready when you show up uninvited :) Thanks Dev!

Flowers and snake print

The weather this week – snow, no snow, more snow, warm, yesterday super warm ↑ , rain and today a cold morning and now it’s warming up again. Typical April in Michigan! I was filled with spring feelings yesterday and bought some pretty outdoor flowers. Need to find the knife today so I can cut of the brown plastic that shows! Details :) The cement planter is from Target.

Mattsson macka!

1G6A5252

Mattsson macka – ‘Toast Mattsson’ goes all the way back to the the 80’s :) It was one of my dad’s best friends, Kjell Mattsson, that introduced me to these a millon years ago. Only ‘wrong’ here, I could only find red fish row in the stores near me, it looks so much better with the black one :)

You only need – toasts, sour creme, shrimps, red onion and fish row on the top. No cooking needed, and everyone makes there own toasts!

Du behöver endast – rostade mackor, creme fraîche, räkor, rödlök, stenbitsrom.

From one of the nights when half of Sweden were here. It’s super quick and easy and absolutely delicious, well if you like shrimp. A little bit messy with the peeling but whatever. Here in Us I get the shrimps, and the black fish row (in a glass jar), at Ikea. In Sweden you can buy these types of shrimps in all grocery stores or from the fish truck. The very best, the fresh ones on the west coast, oh my!!

That was today’s little tip if you are a shrimp lover!

Evening light

The evening light thru the drapes are so beautiful. And behind the drapes you can see the grill. Need to use that one really soon. I’m so ready for the grill season to start and clean up the yard and patio!

Now time to read some books and put the kiddos to bed.

From Eddie-Bo’s new room

If you have $15, a screwdriver and need a smaller shelf – take a trip to Ikea! No it’s not the most sturdy piece of furniture I’ve seen, but I really like it!

Old favorite globe from Target, and the sign that says ‘Here lives a hockey pro’ is stolen from hubby’s closet.

Baskets are always a good idea, I’ve had these for a long time. And a peek from the new bed that finally arrived while all guests were here. So now when we got home from our trip, was the first night for Eddie-Bo to sleep in it! Baskets and bed – also from The Land of Nod. Looking at the picture… I might paint the legs black… and I see some things are left from the tag :)

And why not put Jimmy Howard in the window. More sport things for the walls is on Eddie-Bo’s wish list, and more lights are on my list!
