Our Calendar candles are ready for December 1st. 

Thanksgiving is over and now it is Christmas time ! 
Tonight they light the Christmas tree in our little down town. 
It is always nice to see the town get together. 
They have Christmas music etc, our Mayor is there to wish" his town" a merry 
Christmas and to also treat us with hot chocolate.
And most importantly Mr. Santa comes by with his Mrs. Santa and 
lights the Christmas tree. 
We always go and it is a nice little way to get into the Christmas 
spirit after Thanksgiving. 

Have a niiiiice Friday !

Happy freeeeezing Monday 

Love this zinc house from Danish Madam Stoltz.
These decorative zinc houses with a candle inside are just one of the 
cutest and coziest decorations for Christmas.  

Yay, this week is a short week for us. 
Thursday is Thanksgiving which means we are off Thursday and Friday. 
Our friends from Florida are not coming to New Jersey to celebrate with us this year. 
But they have promised that next year they are back :o) 

Have a great start to this (cold) week. 

Vi ses ! 

PS; You can see different zinc houses from Madam Stoltz's catalog here

Busy Saturday 

I have fallen totally in love with the photo art from Love Warriors of Sweden 
The photo print of miss Lelia is my favorite. 
Oh boy, would I love to have one of the (big) prints hanging 
on my wall in my living room.... 
I think I am adding it to my wish list for Santa this year ! 

Well, time for me to do my Saturday cleaning. This afternoon we 
have the father/daughter dance (and i did get the shoes for Ada), so we have a busy and 
fun day at our little house. 

Have a nice Saturday

I love these candle holders from Tine K Home. 
They give such a nice light. I have 2 are in my kitchen window 
which I light as soon as I get home from work... 

Have a great Sunday.

Cozy Lights 

Happy Thursday. 

I love string lights. 
They give such a nice and cozy light. 
I could have them all over my house. And outside too. 

Yes ! I bought flight tickets for our Easter/vacation 2014 trip to Denmark 
(yes I know there are almost 6 months to Easter, but I got a very good deal on tickets....
Ada is so so excited. She often asks me when we are going to Denmark to 
see her mormor and morfar. My little half-Danish viking :o)  
She loves Denmark. And to be spoiled by her grandparents.  

Have a great day !

Happy Tuesday 

WOW, we got our first snow today. 
This morning when we left the house it was snowing.
The girls were super excited. 
I think I am getting ready for Christmas.
The snow just reminded me of the cozy time Christmas brings. 
I am hoping for a white Christmas this year. Very white! 

Have a great Tuesday !

What a mess...

I am enjoying my day off today ( is Veteran's Day in the US
 I have been organizing my closets including my scarves 
which were all over the place. And oh my, did I realize I DO have 
an obsession with black, grey and white scarves. With stars. 

I also made a trip to Home Goods and I bought my 
first 2013 Christmas decoration.  
Found a super cute paper decorative hanging star in black.
Will look perfect hanging in the living room window :o)  
We always Christmas decorate the house the Sunday after Thanksgiving 
and I am looking forward to getting the decoration fun started.   

...Almost time for me to go and get Ada at school. 
We are having hot chocolate as soon as Naisha gets to the house.

No crazy plans so far for today.

Maybe I will get that done today.    
Hey, I am (always) in the mood for changes at our little house :o) 

Have a niiiiiice Sunday.

Hello Weekend 

I have been up early today. Woke up super early, so I sneaked to the couch 
and watched some television. Ada just got up and we are going to 
have a relaxed morning before we 
head out for our classes. I am going for my yoga class again and  
it is such a niiiice way to start the weekend. 

On the agenda today is also cleaning the house. 
And making a big pot of soup. Mr. J has a bad cold. A really bad one.
But first. Time for some breakfast. 

Enjoy your Saturday Bloggers.

Perfect Tuesday 

There is no school today and the girls were happy that they 
could sleep in (and me too, 30 minutes longer, 
which is a big deal in the morning....)  
Mr. J took me to the train station and was going to stop for 
hot chocolate and fresh bagels for the girls on the way back to our little house. 
I am sure he got them some donuts too...  (he loves to spoil them... )   
I wish I could have taken the day off with them, 
but no more vacation days for me in 2013..... 

Have a nice, nice, nice Tuesday 

Vi ses !

We stayed at the house all day. 
We had a lazy day. 
We baked some cup cakes and they came out yummy. 

Have a nice Sunday night. 


Saturday, November 2, 2013

Saturday evening and I just finished working. 
Ada and Mr. J left this afternoon to hang out with the family. 
I stayed home. I had to work. 
But now it's time for me to enjoy the rest of this lovely Saturday. 

Ohh, I have to tell you..... 
I went to a yoga class this morning. 
 I loved it. 
I felt so relaxed and stretched afterwards. So renewed. So great. 
I am going to try to go each Saturday. 
It is at the same time as Ada's dance class, so it could not be any better. 

Enjoy your Saturday night Bloggers ! 

Good Night and see you tomorrow.
