First day of spring


March 20th is the first day of spring they say! It’s freeeeezing again here though… up and down it is. Can’t wait to get rid of all winter clothes in the mud hall. I’m in a maniac cleaning out mode, don’t hate me. Love when that happens :) I’ve filled the sauna with lots of clothes, toys and stuff for donation. The kids are sometimes coming to me saying -Lets give this toy to a baby or kid that doesn’t have so many things ♥ Makes me very proud!!



I bought some pussy willows (sorry but that name makes me giggle… I’m so mature, I know) and put them in my tall smoke/bluish vase from Restoration Hardware.

I have those vases in a few different sizes, and the other day my biggest and widest one broke… and before that happened it had a small crack in it and leaked water on my coffee table, that now is destroyed. But to be honest, I’m sad for the vase,  but the table I’ve had for twelve years, so a new one won’t hurt :)

About yesterday


The weather – Hallelujah!!!!


Oliver got spring feelings deluxe and celebrated in shorts and barefooted. It’s not THAT warm though. But I have to say our backyard is magical. Always the warmest place, we still have ice and snow on the driveway.


A box came delivered with Oliver’s new sneakers from Zara. I’m jealous. I need new sneakers too!

After a kids birthday party Lisa picked up Oliver and I ended the night with these two lovely girls, Emma and Moa.

Moa knows what we like. Yum!!

Copy paste – white roses are on my shopping list today!

You know what. I’m home alone and it feels nice but weird! Johan and Eddie-Bo have been gone since Thursday, they are in LA!! And Oliver is still at Lisa’s house. Must have been my first night alone in this house!

Have a great Sunday!



Pilates fan


Pilates on reformer – my favorite work out that also works best for my back. It’s super hard, fun and challenging. And best of all the variety is endless. The person who came up with these reformers is a genius!!





And here I am in pants from ByShapeMeUp , dirty Adidas hoodie and St Patrick’s Day glasses. You never know what to find in my friend Jana’s car :)

Btw, I just saw that ByShapeMeUp has a sale going on. I feel I need to order the snake pants!

Happy St Patrick’s weekend to you all!

Garage and roof top


The garage, size suuuuuper big! Coolest garage ever. I think. Black doors and windows are next to install and after that the exterior is pretty much done. Love the industrial look with the concrete walls and the aluminum roof, same roof as the main house!


Spa to the left, pool house to the right. Not too bad, not too bad…


And this brick will cover the rest of the walls.


Takbjälkar på plats! Joist/tie beams (correct english words?) are up! This add on will be our ‘pool house’ with a roof top.


Hello new sliding doors, and good bye to the windows. How dreamy will it be to open up those doors from the kitchen and get out here and enjoy the lake view, drinking coffee. Or rose wine. Or white wine. Or red :) You get it. Gaaaaaa!! Can’t wait!! When I picture this the weather is just perfect… so from now on Sweden, you better deliver amazing summers!!

Summer 2018 I’m ready for you!



Brighter days coming up


Lovely sun rays peeking thru the windows. And tonight it’s time for daytime saving, dags för sommartid, so nice to get lighter evenings! I have to say March is my least favorite month of the year. I love the winter, but when March comes I’m so done! Can’t wait to get warmer days and to skip all winer clothes. Soon. So soon!

Today has been a busy family day, filled with hockey (again!). First practice in the morning and after that we got the opportunity to skate at Little Caesars Arena, so we invited Eddie-Bo’s team with families, and we all had so much fun!

Now – cozy evening in the sofa with a few episode of Homeland! Love that show.
