Happy New Year!

This has been a year where it happened a lot in my life.
I sold my apartment, bought a house and got engaged! I also fought my first kickboxing fight in 5 years, started with Roller Derby and broke my arm.
I feel very happy and know that my life is getting on in the right direction. I have some small issues to handle during 2011 but I really think that it will be a great year.
Of course it's a great year, it's the year for my wedding!

I would like to thank my friends and family for making my life so great and the biggest thanks to Max who is there for me always and ever!
And thanks to all of you reading my blog and with your comments makes me smile and laugh sometimes.

Now I'm heading out to the kitchen to prepare the dinner, the dessert and the drinks.
I hope you all will have a lovely evening and a splendid 2011!
I hope it will be just as fun as this one. This is Linda (Miss Honkytonk) and me at a concert in March.
Just because it's such a happy picture it symbolizes 2010 for me.

Driving home for Christmas..

We're finally home. We came home yesterday after 6 hours driving. A trip that normally takes 3 hours. Anyway, we're here now and it's snowing a lot! This is a picture of my parents house and it's even more snow now.
We've bought the last gifts today and tonight we're going to spend the evening by the fire with some games and candy.
Hope you get a lovely night!

I'm free!

My hand isn't in a package anymore! Yey! I'm so happy that everything went well so I got rid of it. Now I don't need anything around the hand but it hurts a lot now in the beginning so they advised me to have this bandage on for a few days.
I can't start boxing or roller derby until four weeks or until I can do a proper push up. But I will try to do the exercises I've got very often so maybe I can start in three weeks.


It's really really hard. Ok, I haven't been out trying yet but I don't like anything that I find on the internet. I don't think I want a long dress but I don't think the full circle skirt in those 50's tea length dresses flatter my body. This is my inspiration right now, I think it's fabulous.
Maybe we can make it??

Four days to christmas..

..and we did so much in the house this week and weekend. I spent most of the time painting, I like that and it's getting so pretty. We even started in the living room now with the roof and all the white.
Last night Vera called and invited us for home made pizza. It was just so lovely, after all that work, to be served food like that, and in good company as well.
Tonight we went and bought a stove which is getting delivered right after christmas. We fell for this one. Also from Smeg.
I hope you had a really great weekend.

I want back!!

I'm soooo tired of my f'**king hand right now. Not just that I want to be able to do things in the house, I also want to start my muay thai and my roller derby again!! And most of all I want to pass the minimum skills test in roller derby in late january, otherwise I can't participate in any scrimmage or bouts.
Please Santa - let my hand be healed correctly and well!

Cold as ice!

We did a u-turn about the kitchen today. Haha two step forward and one step back. We'd planned to buy a little bit cheaper fridge and stove for now and redo the kitchen in five years or so. But today we rethought that again.
We want what we want and why wait?
So today we threw out a cupboard, moved another to make room for the new fridge. We also need to grind and paint some surfaces again but we will do anything for this lovely Smeg we ordered now.
Isn't it pretty??

With a little help from my friends

Pleease help me out here! We're now ahead of our plan with the kitchen and we haven't decided wallpaper yet. We've come so far that we know that we want yellow, yes we love yellow, but we can't decide which one. First we wanted Rut from Sandberg but that didn't come in yellow unfortunatly. Now we're choosing between this two. The first is Stephen from Sandberg and Pepita from Happy. What do you think?

Just 6 days left!!

Then my arm is free again! Yey! Ok, I'm not that happy because I probably have to wait another four weeks before I can start my muay thai again and I will have trouble moving my hand for a few weeks as well. Anyway, I'm glad that I can see an end to it now. It actually start to smell a little now. Yack!

Sneaky peak

Maybe this will be the wallpaper in the dining room. From Pip Collection, Ealy bird.
Wouldn't it be perfect with our big teak dining table?

Hours and hours

We done a lot today!! I mean, really much. We had help from Rasmus and Ulrika the whole day and all of us four has been working between 9.30 and 17.00. The kitchen is now all done for painting and all the grinding in both the kitchen and the living room is done! They spared us a whole day.
Now it's time for some pizza and wine and maybe some fun game or so.
Rasmus and Ulrika grinding cupboards
This pictures is in between pics, the next pics will be when it's almost done. All the paint anyway!

Yey! We finally sold our apartment! After 14 shows and no bids it just boomed. We got much more for it than we expected. Feels great now with the house and so, I have a feeling that it will cost a little.. Hehe!
This friday it's Max's turn to go to the annual christmas party at his work and I'm at home. Think I will watch a movie or something now because I'm exhausted after, finding, buying and wrapping all our christmas gifts. It's not the easiest thing to do with only one arm!

Pretty pretty

If you're looking for cute but plain dresses, this site is the place! I found The pretty dress company when I was looking for wedding dresses, I don't know why because they're not wedding material at all. But I love the fact that you can get yourself a plain dress in a really good looking model.
Don't look at the girls, the dresses will be fabulous with the right styling!

Daily outfit

I bougth this faboulus pair of pants yesterday. Oh no! I'm going to the dark side. Haha.
Anyway, I really needed them now when we are working in the house everyday.
We were at Bauhaus, shopping a lot and also found this tap for a price that just was a tenth of the other. And I think it's really cute. Strike a pose

The tap, brilliant

Now I'm on my way to Aarhus for the second Christmas celebration already. A whole lot of food. Oh my! I generally don't eat very much of Christmas food, swedish or danish, because it's just loads of meet and I don't eat that. But at the place we're going to today they use to make special fish to me and it's always splendid!

Writings on the wall

OMG! I'm soo tired! I've been out partying two nights in a row now and working in the house on the days. Today we did a lot. Kitte and Vera was visiting and Kitte helped Max to carry out the ugly brown stove and refrigerator. After some coffee with them, we really came in to working mode.
Max has gotten all the bricks showing now and I have torn down all the old wallpapers and thrown the old laminate countertop away.
Now we're just relaxing in the sofa, looking at taps on the internet.
What do you think about this one?

Saturday, December 4, 2010


I was at the annual christmas party at work yesterday. We had a lot of fun but missed the train we were supposed to take home so I weren't home until 4 o' clock. Believe me if I say that I was tired this morning. On top of that my arm ached like crazy and all I wanted to do was to start renovate our kitchen!
Anyway, Max went to the house and started in the kitchen and then he came and picked me up a few hours later. When we I arrived I was still grumpy but we drank some coffee and enjoyed the atmosphere. Then we started to take down the tiles on the kitchen wall. I actually could help!
Yey! With just my left hand and a screwdriver I did the whole corner by myself. I must be she hulk or something!
So now the kitchen looks almost as it does in this pictures but we did do a little bit more so it's almost just bricks now. A good day, where we did a little bit more than we thought that we could.
My corner!
Max looking happy, smashing down the concrete.
Now we're drinking a little champagne to celebrate our house buying and then we're of to Hepcat's X-mas Bash in Lund.

Kitch in the kitchen

We've got the keys to our house today! Lovely! We even met some neighbors that wished us welcome!
We are so happy to get it and now it's finally ours. We're going to renovate the whole house but we're going to start with the kitchen. This is how it looks now and I will show you the progress during the time. Sorry for the dark pictures, I will bring my real camera next time!

More cupboards and fridge, the opening to the livingroom
