Clutter of Lanterns

Ahhhh, I love this idea. 

Not just for the outside, but also for the inside. 
Maybe in a corner, in a smaller version 
with less lamps, but same concept.  


You could select colors which would be perfect for your 
own style at your house.  

I might use this idea in Ada's room! 

I really like it. Different, and so cool.

New Tea; Tazo Rest

Uhhhmmm, I bought a (new) tea. 
Well being, Tazo Rest
It has rose petals, Valerian root and Citrusy herbs. 


Tastes fantastic! Delicioso!  
I am ready for a big cup of it. 
I have to get myself ready for a new (looong) week. 
I love these short weeks with some extra days off 
to enjoy family and friends. 


See you later bloggers.

Christmas Decorations.

Today we started to Christmas decorate.

We went to the store and bought some 
Christmas decorations for the outside.

We bought 2 clear light spiral Christmas Trees. 


We also bought some light garlands for our stairway/entrance, and a 
string of small clear light spiral Christmas trees. 

Everything is up and ready!!! 

We will light everything tomorrow when it is 1st of Advent. 
(I will take a pictures for you guys)

Our neighbors have also started to put up their Christmas 
decoration, so we are starting to get 
the Christmas spirit in our neighborhood. 

Yesterday our town had their Christmas tree lighting by our City Hall.
It is such a great way to end Thanksgiving and start Christmas. 
Santa Claus was there to light the tree. Ada was very exited. 
First she was scared of him, but she ended up giving him a big hug. 
Ada is sooo ready for Christmas. 

*****

Have a great Saturday night

I am about to catch a movie on the couch with Mr J. 
We are watching "The Help". 
I heard it is a "girl-movie", but I convinced him to watch 
it with me anyways.... 

See you tomorrow.

Stairways

A lot of my friends have a 2-floor house. And stairways. 
I wish I had some at my house......
These are some cool and nice stairways, I wish I had at my little house.  
They are very "white and Scandinavian". Love it.

Fun in the sun... or Leaves

Yay! 
Our friends from Florida arrived. 
The first thing the kids did was to go crazy the the leaves 
in the backyard. They are use to palm treas and not 
these gigantic treas with millions of leaves. 
Noah was helpful raking the leaves, and now we definitely 
want them to come back next fall....around this time... 




Now we are going to order some Italian food and just enjoy 
that our friends are here. Finally! 
Danish Hygge time at our little house.


I bought the kids ice cream "Cookies & Cream" for dessert, 
but they don't know yet..... 


Have a great Sunday, and I will see you tomorrow. 

Yesterday I went to my friend Terry's house for a jewelry party. 

I bought a few things, which I want to show you. 





 The company is mysilpada.com and they have a lot of nice stuff.

In the beginning of the year I am planning to have a party at my house. 
It is always fun to have these parties a.k.a. "go shopping and 
hang out with your girlfriends" !!! 


Bags


I would love for Santa Claus to 
bring me one of these 2 bags for Christmas. 

Michael Kors 

Louis Vuitton
 I love bags

Have a great Sunday

Good Morning Bloggers

Hope you are having a nice weekend. 

We have a busy weekend at our little house.
Today, in the afternoon, I have a jewelry party at my friend Terry's house. 
and.... 
tomorrow we are getting visitors from Florida.  
We are counting the minutes for their arrival. (especially Ada). 
They are here to celebrate Thanksgiving with us. 


Beside counting the minutes for our friends to arrive, 
we are cleaning the leaves outside; this is what we are up against. 


Tomorrow the new basement windows are being put in. 
(The contractor cancelled on us last weekend). 


Have a great day and I will see you later.

Package Advent Calender

Christmas is getting closer....

Growing up my mom always made me a package advent calender. 
It made December even more special. 
I want to carry this tradition on to Ada.
I have just bought this cute Advent Calender from Pottery Barn Kids. 
I had her name added on it, to personalize it. 



I already started shopping for the calender. 
I know Ada is going to love it, and I can hardly wait for 
December 1st to arrive, so it is time to open the first gift. 
She will be super excited to see what Santa Claus brought her every day for 24 days. 
I love the smile on her little beautiful face.....

Cosy Fire Place

I wish I had one of these at my house, especially tonight
when it is cold and windy outside. 


Have a great evening and weekend.  
I just turned on some candles at our house and I am ready to enjoy 
my Friday night with my loved ones.

We have to wake up early tomorrow. 
We are getting new windows put in in the basement. 
It is long over-due.....   

See you/Vi ses..... 

Ada

Ada making Play-doh cupcakes for me... 


They were delicious.....

I love IKEA

Today is Veteran's Day. 
Both Ada and myself are off. 
We went to IKEA this morning.

I am sure it has happened to all of you......
You go to IKEA to get 1 or 2 things, and you end up leaving with so much more. 
That is exactly what happened to me today. 
I went to get some curtains, and this is what I left the store with.... 


And of course we had to stop by the bistro to eat a fresh 
baked cinnamon roll! Right out of the oven! 


I love IKEA.  
Makes me feel at home! 


Now we are going to Toys R US to buy a birthday present 
for Ada's BFF Julie. It is her birthday on Sunday and we are invited to her party. 


See you later.
