Weekend plans


Vårat amerikanska kök. Detta är platsen jag använder mest i huset. Älskar att laga mat, hänga med familj och vänner här, eller att sitta med datorn vid köksön, som jag gör just nu, för att kika in till er!

Our American kitchen. This is the place I use the most in our house. Love to cook, hang out here with family and friends, or sit with the computer at our kitchen island, like now blogging and checking into you! 



Krispiga djupt lila tulpaner i vasen just nu, me like.

Crispy deep dark purple tulips in the vase at the moment, me like.


Ikväll är vi hemma och myser. Några vänner kommer strax över, så jag planerar att sippa på ett glas rött medans alla barnen ska ut och åka skridskor. Och helgen kommer gå i samma stil, då menar jag hockey, inte vinet :) Eddie-Bo har turnering i tre dagar, alla matcher spelas relativt nära ändå. Plus Olivers träning och match. Så jag ska heja på mina pojkar hela helgen lång (som är extra lång då det är Martin Luther King day på måndag) Himla kul ska det!!

Trevlig helg!

Tonight we’ll be home, having a cozy evening. A few friends are coming over soon, and we’ll be sipping on a glass of red wine while the kiddos will be skating. And that’s the theme for the weekend. Not the wine, I mean the skating. Eddie-Bo is playing in a tournament for three days, local tho. Plus Oliver’ practice and game. So I’m planning to cheer on my boys all weekend long, that is longer because of Martin Luther King day on Monday. Will be lots of fun!!



Kitchen info and Good Byes


Fick en fråga om vårat matbord och stolar. Dessa möbler har hängt med länge. Hade tom ett exakt likadant bord i vårat hus i Novi, fast storleken mindre. Här kommer lite info, tror det mesta fortfarande finns i sortimentet:

Bord och matta//Crate and Barrel   Stolarna//Ethan Allan   Lampan (som jag målat svart) och Stora utekrukan -Restoration Hardware

Someone emailed me and asked about our kitchen table and chairs. I’ve had them for a long time and I still like them. I even had the exact same table in our house in Novi, but the smaller size. Here comes some info and I think most of the items are still available:

Table and rug//Crate and Barrel   Chairs//Ethan Allan  Light (that I’ve painted black) and Outdoor planter//Restoration Hardware 


Bredvid köksön har jag ett litet bord och två stolar från Ikea. Här ritas och pysslas det mest och äts ibland så klart. Gillar att det bländar in i den svarta köksön.

Next to the the kitchen island I have a small kids table with two chairs from Ikea. A perfect spot for coloring, crafts and aslo for eating. I like that it blends in to the black kitchen island.


Nu har jag precis sagt hej då till min extrapappa Lage och hans tjej Regina. Himla mysigt att ha haft dom här i en vecka. Vi avslutade med en Cissis Detroit Tour, alltid kul att visa runt in the hoods. Bästa Lage har funnits i mitt liv sen jag var nio och han är pappa till min lillebror Victor. Mamma och han splittrade upp för fem år sen för er som undrar hur allt hänger ihop :) Vi kör lite Tomten är far till alla barnen i vår familj, haha!

I just said good bye to my stepdad and his girlfriend Regina. It’s been really nice to have them here for a week. We ended with a ‘Cissi’s Detroit Tour’. ‘Best Lage’ has been in my life since I was nine, and he’s the dad to my younger brother Victor. My mom and Lage split up five years ago. That’s some family info if you wondered how everything is connected :) 




Not so lazy day after all


Hello from the kitchen island, that I use a lot! I kind of miss a big bouquet of fresh flowers here, but I cut off a piece of my big monstera, better than nothing!


If you are building or renovating and thinking of marble or silestone/quarts (kvartskomposit) I would go with the later option. We have real marble and it’s very sensitive, you can see a lot of matte stains.


Since we had no plans today, we decided to join Emma and Henrik for a trip to Greenfield Village, and today it was a ‘Day out with Thomas the train’. So a train ride, a ride in an old T Ford, fun playground and more filled our day. I thought we were done after that but Eddie-Bo really wanted to go to Henry Ford Museum as well, that is at the same place, so we did. He especially wanted to see the old kitchens, furnitures and airplanes again :)

Now we are back home and I’m so tired!! No energy to cook dinner so I’ll use UberEats, if you don’t know what that is – it’s an app where you can order dinner from different restaurants and they deliver to your door. The app is connected to your card, so you don’t even have to get your wallet, just order the food! Love all services you can get :)

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!!

Fresh flowers

Beautiful fresh flowers from Fleur Detroit, my favorite flower shop in this area. The black candle is also from there. I have to see if they come in more colors… It’s time to get rid of all Halloween decorations and now I’m starting to dream about Xmas… most wonderful time of the year!!
