Friday sparkly kitchen


Hello there! Raise your hand if you like to clean like me!! Sorry but for real, I think it’s relaxing and very satisfying. At least when I can listen to music and the kids are either not at home or are playing and are happy, like right now :) That can change fast though!


Everyone is home today, Oliver just had speech therapy in the morning, Eddie-Bo is feverish and has lots of pain in his knee, he’s limping and can’t bend it so well. I took him to our friend and chiropractor Marc, that explained feverish kids can get like a virus on the joints, that is painful. You always learn something new every day! Eddie-Bo got a treatment and got taped like a pro athlete. Hubby is exhausted and is napping at the moment… can his head just get healthy soon!!! That was today’s update on the family.

If you’ve seen my previous post, this black candle holder also got a makeover with the spray paint. And thumbs up for my blooming amaryllis – in a pot from Target and the bowl is from West Elm.


This is the spray paint I used, bought it at Home Depot for less then $4. Next on my spray list is a big vase.


Time for me to prepare afternoon snack and then play some board games with the boys. Later our babysitter is coming, and I hope hubby feels better so he can join for dinner with some friends!

Happy weekend!!

Baking evening


About two weeks ago we were baking gingerbread, yum.


And my sweet nephew Melker made a gingerbread house. We choosed the easy way, a kit from Ikea and glue, no melted sugar and burned fingers :)


Oliver had a cold with a terrible cough that day, so no-one else got to eat his cookies :) And poor Eddie-Bo couldn’t join the baking at all, he was fighting a stomach flu…



I don’t think we would win any gingerbread contests, but we had a fun time together!

It’s been so lovely having family in town. First my brother and nephew, then my cousin and her husband. They left earlier today, and it feels so empty in the house right now!!

Tomorrow I’ll write about a charity event I went to tonight ♥


Enjoying my visitors


While my cousin is out doing Xmas shopping I’m getting my hair done. Oh it’s so much fun having her here. We both love Xmas so much. So much. Our poor husbands are getting an overdose of Xmas everyday. Johan said the other day – It’s only December SECOND (!!) while we were singing Holy night on volume super high right before bedtime, haha. We can’t help we grew up like this :) We are sure our Grandma is watching over us with a smile when we are talking about old memories, baking, laughing and having fun!

Tonight we are going to a family Xmas party at Little Caesars Arena!
