I think this pretty outdoor shower have made it to my blog before :) Anyhow, I think a black outdoor shower would look good by the future pool area in Sweden! Please let me know if you have seen one that I might like!
I’m going thru a really tough week. Good in many ways, but really hard and emotional. Whenever I have time and energy I’ll tell you more about it.
Right now I’m resting the brain and think about interior design. That’s therapy for me!!
Our lovely backyard that we use a lot! This time of the year is just magical. Well except for when we got home from the tournament the hot tub and pool was full of mulch (bark) due to the heavy rain earlier that day. But mostly we can relax, play and entertain out here!
Peaceful evening at our house.
I think I enjoy this even more right now, since I now most of our Swedish garden will be a mess this summer. But we will figure it out and plan what needs to be done.
And I love to see all beautiful summer pictures from Sweden, the weather has been warm and nice in May! Please keep it that way all summer!!
Now time for a little family adventure. Will tell you more another day!
A few weeks ago I got these two bedroom photos sent from my builder. This cool iron beam was found under the old walls and ceiling, a good surprise that I fell in love with. We decided to add some spotlights in it and I think it will look so cool when it’s done. And all the black windows are another love story!
Stucco (puts) on the walls. My first plan was to paint the room in a soft grey/green color, but I like them raw like this, so I decided to keep it this way for now. Need to see and touch it on site! Next on my to do list is to pick out a nice carpet. Also need to call my contractor to see how everything is going back home!
Another fun hockey tournament in the books for us! No trophy this time, we won a few games and lost two against handpicked Toronto teams, so that’s ok! Eddie-Bo and his team played really well, and I’m so proud of them all. We could have been driving home last night, but half of the team decided to stay and hang out, and it turned out to a great night. Love our hockey family!
We are now back home from Sarnia, Canada. Next on this sport weekend is Oliver’s soccer :) After that we’ll just stay home enjoying a cozy movie night.
Normally every Friday morning the kids and I walk or bike to Eddie-Bo’s school and I drop them off at 8.44am. Oliver sees one of his speech therapist their Friday mornings. And yes, the first bell rings 8.44 and the second one 8.49 :) After that the doors close and you have to go thru the office and the students get a tardy (förseningsanmärkning)!. That happened ones for Eddie-Bo and he didn’t like that AT ALL… so after that he wants to leave early. Perfect!
But today is not a normal Friday. Eddie-Bo has another hockey tournament coming up. We are now on our way to Sarnia in Canada, it’s about two hours from our house. He’s very excited and not sad at all to trade a school day for hockey :) Their first game starts at lunch time today.
These are old pictures from Easter! Anyhow, I’ve not been shopping for myself in a very long time. I feel it’s time to order some new pieces, and I will try to do some colorful choices. This yellow skirt and top are from Zara will be a good summer outfit with bare legs and other shoes. The bag is a favorite from Gucci that I use a lot.
Some more blurry pictures of the outfit comes here, a mirror selfie and Eddie-Bo was behind the camera on the other two! And the wall art is by Oliver. He colors and writes, and put up his pictures all around the house :)
Oliver 5 years old!! After breakfast in bed, song, and gifts, the door bell rang and a new cool bike and helmet were waiting for him!
Later in the afternoon it was time for his big party to start, 25 kids, 25 adults came to celebrate!
We moved the party from Saturday till Sunday, and I’m so happy the weather switched from rainy and cold to warm and sunny.
Me, Janne, Emma and my mom.
Batman cake from Home Bakery in Rochester.
And I baked the no 5 and a ‘kladdkaka/brownie cake’, yum!
Kisses and hugs to the birthday boy. In the corner you can see the cutest picture of Oliver and Lily. A gift from her ♥
Bouncy house fun!
And the kids got to go fishing! Sometimes they got lucky with candy and smaller toys, and sometimes unlucky with underwear, dirty sock or a diaper :) They thought it was very funny!
It was a very happy and pleased five year old that went to bed last night! Thank you all that came to celebrate our amazing Oliver! That little stinker makes me laugh every day, so proud to be his mom!
I can’t believe Oliver is turning FIVE years old tomorrow Sunday! I had planned for a pool birthday party today, but the weather has been terrible with rain and thunderstorm so I had to cancel that. Now I’m hoping to wake up to a more beautiful day! Anyhow I’m so excited to celebrate our wonderful, funny Oliver!!
