My temporary lounge

After the kids were in bed tonight I enjoyed some me time right here! Well needed after a weekend with full house!

On the shopping list for our living room -sofa and tv. But for right now I took what we had and made it to a lounge area. The rug, table and the chair to the right belong to the guest house. The grey chair to the right used to be my grandma’s, so that piece feels extra special to me. With some paint and new fabric it looks like new! The two ones to the left are from Newport, that I ordered last summer… and now when unpacked them I realized they’ve sent one in wrong color… another dark grey is on the way!

I’m so in love with this house. Can’t wait until everything is done though!! Waiting is not my thing… hehe… I’ve to show you the exterior soon, then you’ll understand what I’m talking about!

The bed is calling. Wait. Eddie-Bo’s bed is calling. Nope, we still don’t have a big one for me and hubby :) Our to do list is looooong!

In Småland

This is my favorite spot in our summer house in Småland! The kids are now in bed, hubby is watching football, Americans call it soccer :) and I finally have time to sit down and relax with some magazines and a glass of white wine (and blogging!).

And two minutes later… really?!! The kids were almost ready for bed (I thought!!) were watching Pippi Långstrump when I was cleaning up and took some blog pictures… then they showed up like a storm. Blog vs Reality!! Haha!

Soon- sauna time!

We are back home

Home sweet home! And extra sweet because my mom and her Janne are here!! Haven’t seen them since August. They arrived last night to our empty house, so today I just felt i wanted to go home asap.

My lazy relaxing week switched to busy busy as soon as we got home. I unpacked the bags, did some laundry, started to decorate with ballons and banner and also started to bake around 11pm, so typical me!! But, May 13th is Oliver’s birthday and I’m looking forward to sing in the morning for our amazing 4 year old boy!

Night night, time to get some good sleep (that stupid full moon has really been messing with me the last two nights!)

New week

Hello Monday and a new exciting week!
I thought I posted this picture from our living room yesterday, I guess I forgot to press publish… The weekend has been so good! Saturday night turned into a spontaneous wine/drink night at our house with lots of great friends and we listened to old favorite songs, super fun! And yesterday I took the kids to the early Redwings game and had a nice family day.

I just got home from a work out and next stop is my renovation house. I’m actually gonna be a handy woman today and assemble some stuff. The painters are there at the moment and my contractor is working on the kitchen. The house is close to be all done. Can’t wait!! Hopefully we can put up the ‘For Sale’ sign in two weeks!!

Enjoy your day!!

Cozy Sunday morning

The green branches just started to give up, but I’ve been having them for over three months, thumbs up for that!

Morning coffee in my favorite corner, a good start of the day! (Cup from West Elm and side table from Arhaus).

A slow, cozy, pajama Sunday morning in our house, at least for me and Oliver! Eddie-Bo is of course playing hockey! Today is his last practice of the regular season, before spring hockey starts. And I think we are done with early mornings… well not sure, but I hope so :) It’s unbelievable how much he loves hockey. Yesterday he had a game and a tryout, and right after that we went straight to The Joe to watch the end of the Redwings game. And at bedtime he was so sad because I didn’t let him play hockey in the basement!! He woke up with a smile and sad -I can’t believe I have another hockey game today :)

I hope you are having a great Sunday!
