I’ve completely forgotten to post the pictures from the mini road trip we did a couple of weeks ago. One of Hubby’s friend invited us down to Virginia Beach and we decided ‘what the hell’ and got in to our car for some 5½ hours and drove down. Warning; Picture Rain Ahead. [...]
Today I got my long awaited care package from Sweden. Mom was so sweet and sent me a bunch of my favorite stuff from Sweden. A lot bigger and a lot heavier than I had anticipated. Box filled with goodies! I had asked especially for Swedish knäckebröd. I know you guys have Wasa hard bread [...]
The other day we went to Wegmans for some grocery shopping. In the middle of all the “What should we have for dinner” mania, I spotted it. A whole rack of nail polishes for 2 dollars a pop. I should explain, nail polishes in Sweden typical range from 10 dollars to 25 dollars depending on [...]
After 2 ½ weeks of nothing but take-out and fast food, it is SO good to be able to cook your own food in your own kitchen. I made us a nice Chicken Cashew for dinner last night and it was amazing.
I took some pictures of the apartment the other day and thought I would give you a picture rain here. Apartment tour! Hubby in our new fancy kitchen! it has all new appliances and stuff. And a breakfast bar. I’m kind of in love with it. Fireplace in the living room. So far it’s been [...]
The other day I tried my very first cup of Starbucks. I was quite possibly the most awkward Starbucks costumer ever, since I have never been there before. “I’d like one of the Pumpkin Spice thingies, whichever one is the smallest.” Yes, I said it exactly like that. Because I’m awkward like that. But he [...]
Sandy wasn’t that bad for us. The only victims in my close vicinity was this tree… And my blog. It just flat out stopped working. I went to try and post this picture and it was dead. Now we’re back in business, but it’ll take a while before everything looks as normal again.
Sandy is getting closer and closer. Being from Sweden I have absolutely no experience with this kind of weather so I am a tad freaked out by now. I am staying at a hotel though, which is surprisingly comforting. I’m on the 5th floor, so no risk of flooding, but the wind is picking up. [...]
It is a bit typical that the first few days we’re here the biggest storm in years is headed for this very location. “Welcome to America, this is how we do weather”. We’re living in a hotel and downstairs we have news vans and tactical medics prepping for what’s to come. We went t target [...]
I’m here. We made it. Jetlag is a bitch. TGIF has a nice server named Chris. I prefer Target over Walmart. Hurricane Sandy is coming. Jetlag. ZzzZZzzz.
