I am big fan of Camilla Lackberg.   
I love her books and they are in my collection of books..... 




I am so exited, a new book by her is out and I am definitely adding it 
to my list of things to get while I am in Denmark.  



It is raining by us today. 
Hopefully it will be nicer tomorrow, we have plans to go to a farm and 
meet up with Anne and Julie, to have some Easter Fun (egg hunting etc.) 
But, we might have to change plans if the weather stays like this tomorrow too. 
Let's see.... 

Let me start to get ready.... We are heading out for Ada's dance class. 
On the way home we are stopping by Pier 1, to get some lantern light 
strings and to just take a look.

Have a great Saturday and I will see you later....

Today I bought some tulips for the house. 
I love tulips. 



There is a Whole Foods close to my job, and today, when I went there,
 I decided from now on I am going to go there on Thursdays, on
 my lunch break, to get flowers for the house. 
They have so many nice flowers, especially tulips in all kinds of nice colors. 
I picked yellow of course and they look so pretty on my kitchen table. 

Mr J. left not too long ago. He went out to buy some lottery tickets. 
The winner gets 500 million, yes I am not kidding, 500 million dollars. 
Gosh I hope we win. There would be so much I would do with that money... 

I am about to put Ada to bed and enjoy some "Marie-Time" on the sofa, 
catching up on some of my favorite shows. 

Good night and see you tomorrow.... and yes it's Friday !!!



Love this Spring Easter Center Piece

Getting ready to head to work (in N.Y.C.) 
No mini nap on the train today, but instead I am reading my
book by Anne Holt which I just started. It is really good. 

Have a great Thursday and I will see you later !

Easter is getting closer and I can't get 
enough of Hersey Milk Chocolate Easter Eggs. 




They are absolutely yummy.... 

We have planned a little Easter weekend vacation to Hersey Park 
so we can have some family fun time, and at the same time see 
what the trick is to make this delicious chocolate. 
(The kids (we are bringing Naisha too) do not know where we are going, 
just that we are going away for 2 nights. They are very excited..)

Have a great Wednesday and see you later bloggers... 

Hugs....

It was a cold day by us today. 
This morning Ada looked like she was about to go skiing.... 



What happened to Spring? 

How is the weather were you are at? 
A little Tuesday inspiration.....  

Like this idea of adding things in the lanterns 
Very decorative... 



It is almost winter weather by us today... 
I am considering putting on my winter jacket before I go outside, it is freeeeezing... 


See you later !

Yay!

Yesterday we stopped by Potterybarn and Potterybarn-kids....

Oh boy!!!  I could move right into the Potterybarn store... I am in love...

We ended up finally finding and buying a computer desk and I am so happy.
It was exactly the desk I wanted and it was on sale. It was just meant to be... :o)



We (read Mr. J) are putting it together tonight and I can't wait to have a
nice, large and comfortable table to sit at.

I will show you a picture later when it is in its perfect spot :o)

Have a great start of the new week...

Happy Sunday 


and..... yellow in the house 

I finally got my (new) yellow pillow....



It brightens up the living room.... 

Something I like about pillows are, that by adding a new 
one it can make something look so different and new.... 

Have a great Sunday Girls !!

On of my favorite times of the year is spring. No doubt. 

I cannot get enough of the blooming trees. 

Our town is full of magnolia trees all over the place and it so beautiful. 

It is a shame that they don't bloom for months. I would love that ! 


One of the young magnolia trees in our neighborhood 


I want one in my backyard. 
If not this year, than definitely next year. 


We are about to go out and do a few things, including looking for 
a new coffee table for the living room... 


Enjoy your Saturday and see you later.....

Bedroom..... 

I am done painting, well I was done yesterday, but 
today I finished it completely, and I am glad it is done.

Next we are adding moldings (and painting them white), 
so they will match the once around the windows and closet. 



Here is a sneak peak of the color on the wall...... 

This morning I went to IKEA and got some new 
lamps (see picture) and all kinds of good stuff.... 


Don't you just love IKEA? It had been a while since I had been there 
and they had so many new things....


Have a great Friday and I will see you tomorrow....

The Bedroom Project 


Today I am kicking of my bedroom project. 
It was suppose to start tomorrow, but I took both today and tomorrow off, 
so I don't have to rush it. And.... I also thought I would add a trip to IKEA to 
my project and get some shelves, maybe some lamps etc from there.... ( I am sure I will end up getting other stuff too, I have not been there for a while...)   

The color.....

Bridal Rose 

I have picked the color Bridal Rose.... 
Well, yes, maybe it is a little girly (that was Mr. J's first reaction), but I really like it. 
The sealing, moldings, bed frame, dresser, shelves and all that other 
good stuff is going to be white/beige, so I don't think 
it will feel like we are sleeping in a princess room :o) 


I bought a little sample the other day and painted a little area 
juuuuuust to see how it would look. After a few days, 
Mr. J also liked it and said that he "could live with it". 
So here we go: the color has been chosen! 


Time to run down to the store, get what I need and get started.... 


See you later girls...

Denmark here we come! 

Today I bought our flight tickets for Denmark

We are going for 2 weeks in May(!!!) 

I can't wait to see my family and friends. 


My hometown.... 

There is no better feeling when the wheels hit the runway and we finally arrive. 
Let me tell you: It is a loooooong flight.  

Now I have to work on my list of things I need to bring back from Denmark. 
There are already a few things on it..... 

There is also a little one who is very excited. She has been asking 
for a while, when it is time for us to go there...

So today we started to count the days for "take off" ! 
Some people call it vacation, I call it Home Sweet Home
Denmark will always be my home....

Hello Sweeties ! 
How was your weekend? 
My weekend was nice and now it is time for a new week. 
I am ready, I guess, to some extend. It is always nice to be off.... 



I am off this coming Friday so I have a short week... Yay! 

On Friday I am planning to start my project; Our Bedroom
It needs some home improvement. B.I.G. (!!!) time. 

I am planning to show the project here on the blog :o) 
But the "make-over" it will not happened over-night, but little by little.... 

Have a great start of the new week and I will see you later...

Today we have spent most of the early afternoon outside. 
The day has been beautiful. 

The flowers are starting to bloom and I can't wait for 
my rose bushes to start blooming too. 




Mr. J is going to grow new grass on the side of our little house, so he 
has been out there today too getting the dirt ready for the grass seeds. 
I really love a yard with nice green (soft) grass....

We just had dinner and now it time for dessert. 
Banana chocolate cupcakes with vanilla ice cream. 
The cupcakes came out of the oven not too long ago.... They look yummy.

Have a nice continued Saturday and I will see you later!

knuzzzz....  

p.s.: tomorrow morning I am going to go by Target... 
Hopefully they will have my yellow pillow... I'll let you know....

Friends and Pizza-Time


Today we had a fun day with visitors.
My Danish friend Charlotte came by with her daughter Ava 
for some play time and yummy pizza.... 




The kids got to play dress-up and make Ada's 
room look like somebody had turned it upside down... 
The weather was beautiful and they even got to ride their bikes in our backyard. 
Finally (!!!!) we can start playing outside again... 

Now it is time for me to catch a new episode of "Celebrity Apprentice" 
at 9.00pm and snuggle up on the sofa...

Saturday

Happy Saturday Bloggers

Hope you are enjoying your weekend? 




I just finished cleaning the house. It is nice and clean now....  
We are about to go to Mr. J's mom's house. 
On the way there we are picking up Naisha. 
She is coming over today and will stay until tomorrow. 
I think I am going to stop by the store and get them some ice 
cream and popcorn, so I can spoil them. 
They are watching a movie with Mr. J tonight, he is "babysitting". 
I have to work tonight, but from home, so it is not too bad... 

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday and I will see you tomorrow.... 

Vi ses !

New "disco" Pillow

My new "disco" pillow for the collection... 




I am also looking for another or more pillows with yellow 
or something "spring-ish". I need to spice it up a little. 
I actually went to the store to get a pillow (or two) with colors, but I 
left with this silver disco pillow instead... 

The weather is suppose to be nice today and I get in such a spring mood. 
I am ready to plant new flowers in the yard etc. 
I have already made some plans for the outside and I can't wait to get started... 

See you later !

Can's wait for better weather...

Happy Wednesday Girls ! 

I am counting the days for when we can start sitting 
outside and/or just be outside 
without being wrapped in 5 layers of clothes and 
hardly being able to move.... 


I love this picture (from Potterybarn) which is one 
of their preview pictures for the spring/summer..... 
I would love to sit in one of the chairs with a good book and a 
big glass of homemade ice tea... 

Is there a way to fast-forward time?  I wish ! 

Have a great day !!!

Shopping at PompDeLux


Yesterday I just went shopping at PompDeLux, one of my favorite (Danish) 
kids clothing brands/designs.


  


Here are some of the clothes I purchased and I can't wait to get it.
I took me hours to finally press "check out" and make a decision on what to buy...

Laundry Room

I have my laundry area/room in our basement... 

I don't even know if you can call it a laundry room/area. 
I have to admit it it more or less just the washer and dryer next 
to each other in the corner.. (will it qualify for "area", maybe??...) 


via pinterest 

I would love to have a room dedicated to laundry etc at our little house. 
I really like this laundry room..... Very inspirational... 
I would prefer a red and white carpet, but I love everything else about the room. 
And....check out the television... Why not catch a movie while you 
fold your clothes or iron your shirts. 


Have a great Monday. 
Hope you are ready for a new week....

Good Morning Sunday!!! 

We have a bowling birthday party in the afternoon. 





It is a kids birthday party (a friend from Ada's daycare), but the parents 
are also invited, so both Mr. J and I are ready to go bowling too. 
I am exited. I have not been bowling for years. It is so much fun.

Have a fantastic Sunday and I will see you later.
