Happy Tuesday ! 

New flower pots and lavender. 

I planted some lavender in my pots in front of our stairs. 
I love the smell

I can not get enough of the smell of lavender. 

I use it when I clean, do laundry etc. 

PS: We had a nice dinner yesterday at Rain Forest Cafe
It is such a nice and fun place for kids....

Happy Happy Birthday! 

Ada is turning 5 today!  

My birthday girl..... this morning before she left for summer dance camp.  
She was wearing her birthday crown this morning, and 
I am sure it will stay on her head all day....  

We are going out for dinner tonight. 
Her bowling birthday party for her friends etc is not until August 11, but she 
is happy because she is going to feel that she is going to have 2 birthdays :o)

Later Ada and I are going for a bike ride down to the park.

Ada's birthday is tomorrow and she can't wait.....  
She is counting the hours now. 
I sneaked out this morning to buy 5 balloons etc. for her, 
so we can surprise her tomorrow morning. 
Can't believe she is turning 5 years old already. 
Time just fliiiiiiis.....

A new lantern at our little house....

PS: We did not get anything done outside. It was raining all day....

Now I am ready for my Friday night.

Who would think we could have candles lit in July.
But tonight is the perfect night, with the rain outside.
And it looks nice and cozy with the new lantern.

Have a nice weekend Bloggers....

I hope the sun will shine where you are !

This plant is very special to me.....

It came all the way from Sweden and this is what happened... 

My grandparents in Sweden had a small summerhouse outside Lund. 
A beautiful little house where I have spent many hours 
having fun with my Swedish family. 
After my grandparents passed away and before the 
house was sold, my mother took a shoot of this plant
with her to our house in Denmark. 
She planted it in their yard and it started to grow. 
Last year when she came to visit us, 
she had brought a little piece of it with her (I wonder if that is legal btw...).  

After sitting in water and the roots started to grow, we put in in 
the ground in the front at our little house. 

This summer it has started to grow. And keeps growing. 

I am happy. Happy because I think it was such a great idea to 
bring a piece of it to our little house. 
Who knows !! Maybe the day Ada move out and moves to 
her own place with a yard, I might carry on the idea.... 


I am off tomorrow. 
Mr J. too, so we are going to lunch together 
and after that we are going home to fix the area around the front 
of our fence.... (I might stop by Home Goods too, it has been a while since I was there... )

Lets see. No matter what we will enjoy our day off. 

Have a nice Thursday night.
Vi ses Bloggers !

Some new wishes from

I am totally in love with the tray table. 
 would paint the wood frame and legs white... and although it
is for the outside, it would look perfect in my living room....

Have a wonderfull night.
Time for me to enjoy a night in one of my favourite places:
On the couch in front of the tv with a big cup of tea....

Vi ses and godnat :o)

Happy Monday !

Did you have a nice weekend?

On Saturday I took the kids to the movies to see the new Katy
Perry movie. I like it. I like her music. And I like her cute bubbly personality.

....And it is official. We want a pool.  
But, next year. We will wait to the end of the summer season 
and see if we can get a "good deal" on pool.  

We "invade" the neighbor's pool A.L.O.T, and  now
we decided it is about time for us to get one too. The kids
love the water. And so do we. We do have the room in the backyard, so there is
no excuse.... anymore...

Have a great day to the beginning of the new week, and I will see yo later Chicas!

It is no secret that I have a (secret) crush on Mr. Justin Timberlake. 

It is maybe not as big of a crush, as it used to be, but he is still a cutie.
And I have to admit.... 

1. I have seen him in concert....
 2. I do have and still listen to his music….
3. And yes, I have seen his movies......

Now he has started his own home line; homemint

Seriously!!!  Could the man be more perfect !

Justin and his design partner Estee Stanley 

I have just become a member and I can’t wait to 
hopefully get some new and nice home d├ęcor for our little house.  
And some new inspirational ideas.

How it works is, that you do a home style profile on their website. 
Based on your profile, they will recommend certain decor for your house.

Each month Homemint will select and recommend the perfect 
piece to match your home style. 
Either their own design or a handpicked design from 
some where around the world. 

Maybe we will see some Danish design on Homemint too ??? 

Have a great night and see you tomorrow. 
Tomorrow, Friday, again, baby...

I am in a pink mood today.... 

My new sneakers from Nike... 

I am not really a sneakers person, but I got these the other day. 
They are nice and comfy. And kind of cool too. 

Have a great day!

I never thought it was that hard to get up 
after a day off during the week.
I just wanted to continue to hit that snooze button for hours.... 

We had a nice 4th of July with family and 
friends, but it was wayyy too hot. But no rain. (yay!) 
And today it is still hot. 

I am about to enjoy some home made ice tea (with a twist of lemon...) 
and the newest HGTV magazine (you can almost call it old,
 it came several weeks ago, but I just have not had time 
to read it yet), while I am waiting for Mr. J + kids to come home. 

Have a nice night!

Time to have some breakfast and enjoy the morning......

See you later !

New Perfume

Ohhhhh, I wanted to show you my new perfume I bought the other day.

DKNY Women Summer. 

It is very fruity and fresh.  
I needed to try something new. Every time I am about to 
buy a new perfume, I always end up buying something I had before. But this 
time I took a big step :o) and tried something new. And I like it. A lot. 

Have a great Tuesday night. Which feels like a Friday night. 

Godnat Bloggers! 

Tuesday Night Fun! 

Daddy J and Ada were watering the flowers and had some 
fun at the same time...
Somebody got wet, wet, wet.. and it was not me. 

P.S.: Tomorrow is 4.th of July, so we are off. YAY

Can't believe the calender is already saying July. Where did June go...?

We had a great last day of June. We went to PA to a (big) BBQ 
and had a very good time.
Fantastic Friends, Food and lots of Fun.....

Now it is time for me to enjoy my Sunday. 
I have to clean a little bit and go grocery shopping, but beside that, I just want to 
enjoy my day off and maybe try to get some sun and 
read a couple of chapters in my book... 

Enjoy your Sunday too and I will see you later......
