Happy New Week 




We had a busy, but fun, weekend with installation of our new back and 
front doors, shopping, a swim in our neighbour's pool, play date 
with bff Anne and the kids and work (from home).... 

And now we are ready for a new week with our wedding 
anniversary, Naisha's b-day and 4th of July weekend. 
I am getting "stressed" just thinking about it :o) 

Have great start to your new week !

Note Book Time 




I love note books. 
This note book with a (Scandinavian) wolf I bought at Søstrene Grene 
when I was home in April. (the pen is from Danish Tine K Home)
Every morning before I leave the house I write a little note in it for the girls.
 It turned into a tradition last year when they went to summer camp. I would 
leave the house before they would get up, so I decided to start writing them a few 
lines which they could read when they would wake up.  

We are doing the same this year :o) 
Every Morning. Except on the weekends. 

Tomorrow is Friday, yay, and we are getting our new front and back doors installed 
and I am very excited about that. And they are white. 
My Scandinavian white. 
Just perfect for our little house. 

Mr. J just took the girls to the park, so time for me to 
invade the couch and television before they are back and it is time for bath, 
a little bit of television and bedtime. 

Vi ses !

My little Star 




What a great show last night. We had such a niiiiice time. 
My little dancing star. 

We had a busy last week with 2 graduations and lots of rehearsals. 
The girls are now officially on summer vacation. 
And they are happy. 
They are off all week. Ready to relax before they start summer camp next week. 

No vacation for me until August except for a long weekend in connection 
with the 4th of July weekend.... 

Have a great Monday and start to your new week...

Show Time 




Today is one of my favorite days of the entire year. 
Today is when Ada has her recital show.
The last 2 years she has only been in the kinder-dance part, but this year 
she is in 5 dances. Oh boy, I can't wait to see my little girl perform. 
I better bring a box of tissues :o) 
We invited our neighbors and a family friend and it will be nice 
to share this day with them. 

Have a wonderful Sunday !!!

It is a big day. Very big.

So happy for her.

 Front Steps




Here it is; my new planter and new tree on my front steps

Just came back from taking Mr. J to work. Stopped for a Vanilla Chai and
I am going to throw myself on the couch, enjoy my coffee,
watch some television and wait for the girls to wake up....
We are going out later to buy a father's day gift.
Tomorrow is father's day in the US.
Not sure what we are doing yet. But we are celebrating. For sure.

See you later, let me drink my coffee before it gets cold....

A trip to our local nursery






I am off today and after I was done doing a few things in the morning
Mr. J and I took a trip to our local nursery.
They have so many nice and beautiful flowers. And trees.
Saw a pear (last picture) tree I would love to have in my backyard
 
I got a really nice plant/tree for my front steps planter. (I will take a picture for you later)
I have to go and get Ada from school in a few minutes. 
She is coming home for a little bit before I have to take her to her
dance school/after school program where they have to rehearse for the recital
show next weekend.

Enjoying this lovely and sunny Sunday at our little house.
Mr. J went to JFK airport to pick up my father-in-law who is coming back
from a trip. The girls and I are here at the house.
Naisha just started to pack for her school trip to Washington D.C. from
Tuesday to Wednesday. She is very excited and is looking forward to
exploring D.C. with her friends from school.
 
Oh, we all went to the movies last night and watched Maleficent.

New White Coffee Table. 






My DIY project is done and I am happy with
my new white coffee table in our living room.
Next up is Ada's little table....

What a nice sunny morning at our little house. And I am off today :o)
Just took the girls to school.
Now it is time to go to IKEA to get a few things.
Lunch with my Mr. J and a trip to Home Goods are also on my agenda.
Love my "Marie-Days".

Have a nice Monday and a great start to your new week.

June is here ! And time for some DIY
 
 

 


Wow. Calendar says June 1st today. 
 
Today I am doing some DIY. After dance class yesterday morning, Ada and
I went for a ride in our little town to see if there were any garage sales.
I have been on the look-out for a coffee table for our living room and lucky
enough I found this one. And it came with another little side table with a
drawer, which is going to be for Ada's room. 
$25 for both. What a deal.
Both of them are going to be painted white and I can't wait to get 
started (and done).... Got the paint (spray paint) already !
 
Besides my little painting project we have a busy Sunday.
Ada has a friend from school coming over to play for a few hours and after
she leaves we are invited to our neighbor's house for a BBQ/birthday party.
Oh boy, I better get going here... :o)
 
Have a great Sunday
