c a r r o t c a k e c u p c a k e s

Had the most amazing carrot cake cupcakes yesterday. My sweet little sister made them for us and the baby as a late birthday cake kind-of-thing :) Sooo yummie! :)
Daddy and Granny snatched the best spots... :)

Because a picture is worth a thousand words...


how hooked am I?

These are the brace pants that I got from my little sister yesterday. Ok, baby got them, alright! :) Anyways, today I matched them with a blue onesie and oh I'm in love! :) Maybe this is baby's going home outfit? Totally hooked! Ha!

la musica

Cleaning and doing small things around the apartment whilst listening to Jamie Cullum and John Mayer. Should do that more often... :) I spotify!

SO looking forward to the 2012 IKEA catalogue!!! :) Within the next few days-weeks it should arrive at my door! :) Wohoo! Supposedly a lot about storage - thank God!


♥ blueberries

I myself got this pajama set (other piece is blue+white stripes) in size waaay-to-big, whilst thinking "eventually...". I just LOVE the pattern... reminds me soo much of somthing (a table cloth maybe?) from my own childhood in Stavsjö. I just had to get it and since there were only large sizes left there was little left to do than snatching one of those.

I have the best little sister

Not only did she make me come out of my hiding and actually do something today but she also gave me more super cute baby clothes :) Baby says "thanks auntie"!


Jamie's 30 minute meals

Maybe this can cause my food and cooking inspiration to come back! Would guess so! Coming out in Swedish in a few days and has been out in English for about a year(?) Anyways, new to me. I stumbled across an episode of the tv-show just now - thank goodness! :) And I think heaps (if not all?) recipes are also on his website. Here's what I saw today.

and while we were at it...

J didn't really come home empty handed either... although the dust it is for me :) Miracle stuff ;)


Baby times = investment times. But this investment is for me :) And my hair, to be precise. I finally got around to getting these (supposed to be) really great products from Tigi. Hope they meet my expectations.


Mood board #09 - ready for baby

4 days till due date. Please baby, be on time! :)

ready, set, pancakes!

Yuuum! :) Why don't we make pancakes more often?? With cold milk, naturally!

müsli / muesli

Today I'm making my own muesli again... before summer ends, I figured :) Not that it's about to end or anything... hrm... :) But this time I'm writing my own recipe and leave out the cinnamon. Will be back about the recipe. But only if it turns out edible+awesome! :)


That present

So here's what I gave to 2-month-old Alicia, daughter of a fav couple of mine and J's. I designed and made it myself (pretty basic stuff) and I'm really happy with the outcome! So glad I went to have it done at a proper print shop! I'm starting to think graphic design really is for me :) Imagine working with something one really loves and maybe even turn it into a business... :)

the sneak peek

Now it's just the other fun part left, wrapping! :) Wish me luuuck!

sneak peak coming up...

I spent some time this morning (oh, it's 2pm already?? ..so much for morning, huh.) finishing a gift for someone special. I'm so happy with how it turned out! Just going to snap a "sneak peak"-picture and soon I'll put it out on here on the blog. After giving it away, I'll show you the whole thing, obviously :)


getting ready

Got the packing list done and the baby's things ready. It's harder to start packing all of my stuff... I'm still using most of it. Anyways. 11 days till due date! :)

How gorgeous!

Flowers I got from J yesterday on our anniversary. They kind of made me long for fall a bit. A tiny tiny bit :)



bathroom adjustments

Ha, lots of baby posts now. Getting ready is all! :) Here's how we managed to fit a changing table in our tiny bathroom. The window recess was deep but not deep enough to fit a babycare pad on so J built a kind of fitted shelf to put in front of the window and voila! :) With it comes a lot of well-needed storage space!


new, new & new

So we went to IKEA the other day and now we've got a new pendant for the kitchen table (unsprayed as of yet and maybe we'll keep it this way? Kind of looks light (light) grey with all the white-white around...) and a big chest of drawers in the wardrobe. The drawers take a lot of space but then they give a lot of it too! So definitely worth it. And it's white :) of course.

And now I have somewhere to put all our cute baby clothes! Perfect! Ahh, can't W A I T! :) And here's how the wardrobe looked before.


so that we can bring you home safely ♥

And for you curious people, it's an all-black (never mind the crappy colours in the picture...) 2010 Brio Primo Infant Car Seat :)


i'm going to do this

Heaps of pretty postcards, cutouts, photos and what not! Love it! Perfect for any white doorway with white walls around = just about any doorway in our apartment :) And oh-so-easy! Note to self: do this!
