Today was a relaxing Saturday. I work every other weekend which means that I work this weekend. Today we went to a farm with the girls. So Tim, Jeannine, the girls and I went together to meet up some family friends to Jeannine and Tim. It was so fun standing on th "other side". I´m so used to being one of the children. But know it´s like I´m one of the adults. It feels so weird, but also amazing to think that that was me 15 years ago. How amazing isn´t that. I feel so old now that I´m able to say that I did stuff 15 years ago.
As I posted on my Instagram account: I think I can officially call myself a 20 year old "housewife"(housewife isn´t the best translation from the swedish housemother, which is directly translated) living in LA. The morning to honor my hist family and I was at the farm as I mentioned earlier. However the afternoon had another turn. I was baking with the older girl Elise. We had a great time. But the highlight of the "mom" thighs was when I happily looked out the kitchen window at my host kid proudly seeing her playing peacefully by herself. So I just want to say thank you Saturday for these great moments and Sunday let you bring me as much joy as today!
Today was a giving day. My longing for home is still in my thoughts even though I have to think about my highlights here! I’m so happy for getting support from all my friends and family at home. Thanks ❤️❤️
I need to think about what out come I want of this travel and what kind of experiences I’m looking for. I’m guessing that these are thoughts you should have before you leave, but because I took this decision so fast I didn’t really have expectations. It’s both good and bad of course, everything has its pros and cons. Everybody’s telling me that I’m going to regret if I leave early and I think I’ll agree. I can’t give up and I won’t. I just begun the start of this year and need to feel my way through it. I need to remind me of the best thing of the days instead of things I long for back at home. Even though that’s a pretty good feeling to.
Hello blog! Yesterday went from a calm day to a crazy night. I went out with Beni, Alexia and two other guys. We met one of them on a restaurant where he is a waiter and we also ran into him at the gym. He asked us if we wanted to go to a club with ages 18+, which we of courses said yes to.
The theme of the club was cowboy theme. It was a small club and a lot of young adults. I loved it! Everybody knew every dance for the songs. And I was of course trying to follow the steps. I danced allllll night long and I loved every second of it. Even though I didn’t know the steps. Well at least I tried.
I had an amazing time but all good things come to an end. We left the club and into bed it was. I fell asleep straight away and got up around 6am to ta a shower and get ready to work.
THE VIDOE IS DONE!!
Yesterday me and Beni did a video, and here it is.
At the moment I’m chatting with Alexia and Beni about our different languages. Me and Alexia just ate a pizza after the work out. I’m working soon, around 3pm I think!
At the moment I´m waiting for noon so I can go and pick Alaina up. It´s been a very relaxing morning. I woke up around 6.20 am and took a bath. I feel like I become another person after I take a bath. I´m in a lot better mood and have another type of patience than if I wake up and go straight down to work. I made the children´s lunch and breakfast together with Laura and then I drove Elise to school. I love driving her too school and seeing all the little children running around playing with each other. Anyway after dropping her of Beni came and we made a video for his volgg! It was actually very fun, and hopefully material he can use. Hahaha.
Still trying to get a weekday routine. It goes a lot better now. I go to the gym and I'm trying to find my creative side again. This baby tiger was my first inspiration!
Beni and I was hungry after the gym today and decided to make cookies and brownies. The brownies aren't done yet so I don't have a picture of them.

Today Beni, Alexia, Faviola and I went to MALIBU!!!
It´s a beautiful place and absolutely on of my favorite beaches here in Los Angeles. Of course hanging with famous Beni and beautiful Alexia means that the cameras been bussy and I have a lot of pictures, but I´m only going to post a few of them tonight.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It's also my most difficult meal of the day. I am actually more often than not a morning person, but breakfast has always been hard for me. I usually wake up around 8 o'clock and then I stay awake for a while so I have time to get hungry. This only works on sleep in mornings and weekends. My new routine where I don't have the time to wait to eat because I'm headed for work or school has now become to eat something I know is easy to swallow. I chose to eat yoghurt and sometimes porridge or oatmeal as you say in America. Another strategy I have, specially when I was studying, was to eat to breakfasts. One early in the morning. Something easygoing and small. Like fruit or yoghurt with flaxseed. And then I eat again before noon, and at this point my stomach is awake enough to handle a peace of bread etc.
Through my 20 years of living I've always had a sensitive stomach. It's just the way it's been. I found out that I have a chronically sickness if you will, that's called IBS in Swedish, I don't know what it's called in English. Basically what it means is that I have a sensitive stomach and it's very important for me to eat the right cost. I have now found my strategy for what eat to have a happy tommy.
First of all let me apologize for my terrible English. I can assure you that my rhetoric ability is better.
Secondly let me inspirer your happiness. There is so much joy in life. Of course there are ups and downs in life, but let me put it this way. There are always one reason to smile in one day, but all days doesn´t necessarily have to be perfect. Let´s focus on those tiny moments that makes you smile. This Thursday I got reminded of this saying. I was over at the DMVs´ taking my driving license, as you probably know by this time. At the DMVs´it´s in a certain sense, what I mean with this is that it´s not the most sanitary and uplifting place to be in. It´s like the offices you see in the movies. Not very uplifting, grey cubicles with people without a smile on their lips. This didn´t make me all that excited to take my test. BUT when I reach the desk a woman is asking for my permit and insurance for the car. She has a huge smile on her lips, she´s making jokes and is just happy. I remember thinking of her situation. She probably has to deal with a looooot of people that´s frustrated, angry, sad and just not in the mood. Side facts: DMV isn't only where you take your drivings test it´s also the place you have to go to to register for your new car or to go to when your car´s crashed and so on. Therefor a great mix of emotional people. Anyways she still manage to keep smiling during the day. which gave me a lot of happiness. That´s why I would like to remind and inspire you to keep that moment where you actually did smile nearby. Because it´s not far away even though it can be hard sometimes to find your smile!
