Fun BBQ Day

We had such a good time yesterday. 
Lots of food, drinks, music and fun. 
It was so nice to see people we hadn't seen since last year. 

At the end of the night the fire pit was lit and we were all enjoying 
the fire and the heat (it got a little cold at the end of the night) and
 the kids got to make yummy s'mores. 
Now I want a fire pit in my backyard :o) 

We made it back late.... 

Now... time to enjoy our Sunday. 
I need to do the cleaning and laundry I did not have time to do yesterday.

Later we are having a BBQ and just enjoying the rest of our Sunday. 

The girls are starting dance camp tomorrow and they are very excited. 

See you later Bloggers

Happy Saturday

Time to stop by one of our local parks. Ada's friend from school 
is having a birthday party, so we are stopping by for a little bit to 
say Happy Birthday and to give her the gift. 
Later we are heading on our little day trip to PA for the BBQ 
and some good food and fun. 

Have a great Saturday and see you tomorrow.

Our Friday food just got here and it is time to have dinner 
and enjoy Friday night. 

See you tomorrow. 

Bags from Tine K Home

As I have mentioned before I am in love, love, love  
with the bags from Tine K Home.
Can't get enough of them.
They are so perfect for everything; the beach, the park etc.
Did you see they have a speciel at (one of my favorite webshops) CAHETU
Free delivery on the bags all weekend.
Hard to resist.....
Happy Friday!

Hola Bloggers


I had hoped for it to be Friday this morning when the alarm went off,
but nope, it is only Thursday. One more day to go.
I am really looking forward to this weekend.
On Saturday we are making a trip to PA (not sure what the name of the town is...) to
a B.I.G. BBQ. One of Mr. J's co-worker has this BBQ event every year. And we are
talking B.I.G. with live music, tons of games, way too much food etc.
This year they are also going to have a pork roast, and I can not wait to try it. 
The house is in a forest and it is such a beuatiful place.
One of those places you would love to live. Nice, green and peaceful.
In a way it reminds me of Denmark. Maybe that's why I love it there so much...
I will make sure to bring my camera and take lots of pictures.
Now... time for me to have my coffee and start working....
See you !

Happy Monday 

We had a BBQ yesterday (...and yummy, there is nothing better than BBQ food)
Naisha came over for the weekend, so the girls got to play and have some fun. 
They are both starting dance camp next Monday, so Naisha will 
be staying with us most of the summer.  

Now time to say welcome to our new week.
Can't believe it is last week of June already...

Happy Weekend 

Good Morning lovely Saturday 

We bought a pool for Ada yesterday, so this afternoon 
it is pool-time in the backyard. 
I am joining her so I can get some sun. I need to get a little tan before 
we go on our summer vacation to Florida, so I will not get burn there... it is not until the end of August, but I better start now :o) 

Have a nice Saturday and I will see you later Bloggers.

The Backyard 

I am pretty happy with our backyard.
But I still need some more stuff.
Something to just give it that feeling of always wanting to be outside.
A place to want to hang out and to have fun.
A place to sit with a cold glass of homemade ice tea (wine) and a good book.

On my wish list is an umbrella, new chair cushions, string
lights (they all broke during Sandy) and lots and lots of lanterns
I think we are going shopping this weekend.... (I already "warned" Mr. J...

It is going to be a h.o.t. day by us today.
But I love it. I am ready. Hot summer, get here!

Have a nice Thursday

Happy Wednesday Night ! 

My Ada hanging out on the front stairs coming home from dance class. 
Mr. J and I went to the park for our "walk and talk" (I also ran a little...) and we 
did a little more than 3 miles in about 45 minutes. 
Not bad for "beginners". 
We need to get in shape, be healthy and get ready for the summer (the beach/pool...

Have a great Wednesday night and I will see you tomorrow 

On of my favorite photographers is 
Jose Villa 

I can spend hours and hours looking at his fine art photography.
His wedding photos are so beautiful and romantic....

Happy Sunday 
Happy Father's Day to all the dads 

We are celebrating Father's Day today. 

We spoiled our Mr. J with a cute card and a 
nice picture/poster Ada had made for him. 

I also got him (us..) tickets for a Bruno Mars concert 
in our area in July. Yay. We love, love, love his music. 

Yesterday leaving for the show...
Somebody was very happy because she could wear (a lotof red lipstick. Hmmm... 
What a nice show and what a proud feeling to see your child be on stage.
She did so good.  

Time to do a few more things at our little house, and then we are 
turning on the sprinklers in the backyard. 
Time for some fun and to get soaked.

p.s.: Cobber Vase is from Danish House-doctor.

Show Time & Dinner for 2 

Ada has her show tonight and we can't wait to see her do her little ballet moves ! 
We have to drop her off 2 hours before the show starts, so Mr. J 
and I are going on a "dinner date" before the show starts. Nice! 

Have a wonderful Saturday

Have a nice Thursday Night 

Time for a cup of tea and a new episode of Hannibal tonight. 

We had a busy evening. 
Ada had dance rehearsal for the show on Saturday. And tomorrow again.
After Mr. J and I dropped her off at the dance school, we went for
 a walk in the park. A long walk, but it was very nice. 

I am so happy it is Friday tomorrow !

Kitchen Chalkboard 

I made a chalkboard on my kitchen wall the other day.
I wanted to do it for the longest time, but I never got around to it until now. 
I was missing a place to write groceries and other things to remember.
Or maybe just a place to write cute notes.... 

It cost me under $20.00. All I had to buy was the tape and paint. 
Easy and simple and fun at the same time.
