Friday. YAY! 

I am soooo ready for the weekend. 
The last couple of days have been dragging, but now we are 
finally here. Friday! Absolute best day of the week. 
We just finished eating Burger King (i know...). Mr. J is meeting up 
with some friends and Ada and I are home alone... We are going to 
watch a movie. I think I am going to surprise her with a big bowl of 
popcorn! Perfect with a movie !! 

Tomorrow we are invited to a BBQ in PA. We are still debating 
if we are going to take the 2 hours ride there or not. I think we will. 
It will be a nice little Saturday get-a-way. 

Time for that big bowl of popcorn.....

Have a nice, nice, nice weekend

Happy Tuesday...... 

Imagine having a party in this location. 
What a nice setup
Could it be more cozy?

I would like to turn it totally shabby chic with different 
white chairs, a long white table, roses etc. 
I am already dreaming... 

Check the line of lanterns in the background.. I am S.O.L.D. !! 
(if you do not know it by now.. I am obsessed with lanterns...)

Hi bloggers!

We are getting closer to 4th. of July and I am impressed by the 
creativity people have for this Holiday.. 



We have no major plans for the 4th. of July. 
We are off, but it falls in a Wednesday, and Thursday we are going back to work. 
But a BBQ in the backyard and a trip down to our little down town to see the 
fireworks are definitely on the agenda for that day ! 

I am thinking to try out a creative idea .... I am not sure which one yet....

We had a fantastic day celebrating Swedish Mid-summer. 

The weather was beautiful, and the kids got to play and have some fun. 

.....And the adults got to relax and enjoy the day too. 

In September they have another event in the 
same park; Scandinavian Festival and I think we are going back 
for another fun day. 

Now its time for me to throw myself on the sofa
 and enjoy my Saturday night. 
I am not sure how long I will last for. I am super tired..... 

See you tomorrow ladies !

Swedish Mid-summer… in the US


Tomorrow we are going to a Swedish Mid-Summer festival in NJ. 
I look very much forward  going because besides the midsummer pole, 
there will be a Scandinavian food and marketplace (yay, I hope to get some candies!!!), lots of children’s activities, Swedish folk dancing, raffles etc.

It is a very nice event and we are looking forward to enter the “Scandinavian world” for a day.
We are meeting up with our Danish friends there, which is even
better :o) (Vi ses Anne og Søren + kids)

We are ready to celebrate the longest day of the year. A day of non-stop celebration.

 Enjoy your weekend girls

Pssst; it is finally getting cooler now, we have had the hottest weather for the last few
 days. We are suppose to get rain later today and the temperature is going to drop…..

Uhhhh, I will need a frappucino from Starbucks today.

It is hot, hot, hot by us today!

I am glad I have a short day today. I have to take Ada to the doctor...

I think we are going to convince Mr J to take us for ice cream afterwards...

Vi ses senere!

shelving and the rugs.... 
Hmmm, I wonder where those rugs are from... ???

Are you ready for the weekend?

We have a busy weekend ahead of us.

  Saturday afternoon we are invited to a graduation party.
Saturday night we have Ada’s dance recital …. and again Sunday night. Yes, they sold out Saturday, so another show was added for Sunday !
I am one of the parents who has volunteered to help out,
so I will be behind the scenes getting the girls ready for the show (they are the first group going on stage) and entertaining them until it is time for
the “Grand Finally” at the end of the night :o)
Fun, fun, fun !

 The weather is suppose to be beautiful, so hopefully I will be able to get some sun too.

And Sunday is Father’s day in the US, so we will make the day
special for Mr. (daddy)J. He deserves it!

Do you have any exciting plans for the weekend???

Busy-Bee-Me…. See you later girls!

 The B.I.G day

Today is a big day for us.

Ada is graduating from Pre-K.

We were told that Ada has a special part in the graduation ceremony, 
so we are very excited ! 

I think I need to bring a box of tissues, and I know Mr J. is going 
to grab a few of them too. 

Today is one of those days where your child makes you sooooo proud...... 

Have a fantastic day

This morning I snapped some pictures from my backyard... 

I bought these solar lights at IKEA and we hung them in the yard along the fence. 
They give a super cozy light at night... 

Are you enjoying your Saturday? 
I just finished cleaning most of the house and I loooove the smell of lavender. 
Now it is time to go out with Mr J to get a few things.
Tonight we are watching "The Avengers". 
I was lucky to get a copy, so we are watching it at home all comfy on the couch  
with a big bowl of popcorn :o) 
"Life is good" especially Saturday night !!!! 

Have a great Saturday and I will see you tomorrow girls

order some food... Yummy! 
I am hungry....

Have a great Friday night and I will see you later.

I like this time of the year when 
you can pick flowers from the yard and bring them inside.... 


My rose bushes are also starting to grow and I think they are 
next in line to be picked and come inside our little house... 
Hope you are having a nice week.... 

"So far so good" by us. 

The weekdays fly by so fast and before you know it, is is Friday again...

Time for me to enjoy my Grande White Chocolate
Mocha from Starbucks...... and start working...

Mami Love... 

.....Is there a way for our kids never to grow up??? 

Can never get enough of these mami-love-moments. 

Have a fantastic Saturday night... 


Yesterday I had a Marie-day. 
I took the day off. I went go to IKEA, had lunch 
with Mr J, got a pedicure, went clothes shopping etc. 

I love those days..... 

I went to IKEA and got super inspired, as usual. 
But I did good :o) I only bought what I went there for.  
Who would have thought that would be possible. At least for me !!! 

And now with my new frames from IKEA I finally got to hang my Ylva Skarp prints.  
I bought them at (tak Heidi!!) when I was home in Denmark.


Yay, today is Saturday! 

Have a wonderful weekend. 

Vi ses/See you later...
