Our youngest has turned ONE🎉
So the whole last week was speedy on planning and celebrating his birthday. Time has gone so fast to fast🙃

We celebrated Zayn’s birthday with our closest loved once and it was perfect. First we couldn’t decide what to cook, but we choose to go with braised lamb. And it was a success. When it comes to parties I’ve realized that a yummy stew is the best way to go. Then you can concentrate on other things like decoration and avoid stress if you prepare it the day before.

I’m on my way home to my ❤️ after a lovely day at MOS with Kumba. A well needed me time today no work at all! Tomorrow it’s date night for me and Bae. We’re really good at having date nights at home. After all that’s what comes with kids. But tomorrow we’re going out while grandma is going to babysit 😍

It’s Wednesday and time for us to upload a new Vlog for you guys.

Long time huh 😁

I felt that I had to take a break from the blogging for different reasons!

First of all it was time! There was no time for me to blog during the summer. All the kids were home and it was hectic. All credit to the kindergarten and school teachers out there 🙌🏾
We were moving as well. And that packing business was a never ending story. We were packing and packing and it never ended. Just the thought of that makes me never want to move again.
And then we moved into the new house then the unpacking business was a never ending story. One top of that entertaining all the kids home on their summer break. With the shitty so called summer weather we had.

But we made it work. We’re back to basic! And almost all the moving boxes are unpacked 😂

Quick update!

I’m not on paternity leave no more. I’m back working full time. Juggling with being a mother, partner and business woman ain’t easy. But I pray that it will be all worth it in the end. I know for sure it will. There has been some bumps in the road. No negative once, just those once where I need to strive for the better business wise. But the Anah who’s not that patient but working on it, would’ve jumped into things long time ago. But I’m lucky that I’ve good people around me to guide me. I don’t listen at first but I take notes!
I’ve had to huge gigs this summer. Been cooking for Youssou N’dour and Wally Seck! I was so honored and it was definitely a challenge. But she succeeded in my Tamar Braxton voice.

We’ve been to London for business and a mini vacation, we also went to Finland with the kids on a boat trip. Check out those vlogs on our YouTube Channel Gambia Meets Liberia.

The kids are doing great🙏🏾
Malik is a big boy, he’s in 3rd grade now, playing football and turned whole 9 years old🎉🌟
Mayah is still the diva and she started cheerleading. And she’s loving it❤️
Baby Zayn is amazing. He turned 1 yesterday so he’s not a little baby’s no more, but he will always be my baby boy😍 Sadly he was sick on his bday. But we’re celebrating him next week.

Bae is actually the on paternity leave now. He’s doing an excellent job! Now he sees the struggle women goes through.

But I’m back on the blogging now as well.
Happy Monslay💋

I don't even know how to start this blog post. Maybe I've blogging block. Is that even a name? Since I'm on this block subject. Let's continue on that subject.

I got blocked from a fb interior group. Just because I accidentally shared my blog post in their page. Which is strictly forbidden! And trust me when I say that it was a BIG mistake. I was just in a hurry and thought it was one of this fb groups that I usually share my posts on. And the thing is I really love the group they blocked me from. I even contacted the admin. And they wouldn't let me back in since the think that it wasn't a mistake. Seriously do I even have a interior blog. Any who I was blocked for life! But that didn't stop me from seeing their page 🙅🏾

These past days things have been really gone in the right directions business wise and in life. Fingers crossed 🤞🏾
I'm getting so much closer to my dreams.
Promise to fill you guys in when everything is settled.

Last Saturday we went to two Birthday parties 🎉
The twins and princess Alimahs ❤️

This summer is F*cked Up!
At least weather wise. You've to go to indoor swimming pools to swim.
What's that? We were supposed to go to London for a family vacation.
But with everything that happened there we choose to be safe than sorry!
We haven't still figured out what to do with them yet. And everything depends on how this new project is going to go.

But we're still having fun and making the best out of it. Spending family time, doing different activities, playing games and cooking good food.

Yesterday we were supposed to have a game night at Tolv Stockholm. But they closed around 21:00. So we had to go back home. But we will give it another try today. Either we will go to Husby badet or Tolv Stockholm. But first we're going out to train.

Somebody's stomach is acting out!
Guess who's?

🤦🏾‍♀️

I thought that this day would be hard in a way. You know letting go of something that you've been attached to for so long!

But nope it was a relief!

Moving ain't easy! Luckily is nothing that we've to do often. We finally returned back the keys to our old apartment. And it was such a good feeling. Mostly because now everything is done over there. Cleaning and nothing more to pack. So now we can put all our energy to this new place instead.

But today I'm going to try to make this day to no must do day. I just need to find some papers though. It ain't easy to be a grown up!

❤️

One of the first pictures of Malik in the old apartment. Now time to make new memories❣️

Long time I know. But all the kids are home from
School and daycare. So they're basically taking up all my time. They've so much energy. It's unbelievable. On top of that we've moved. So it was a lot of packing and throwing stuff.

But we're finally in our new places. We moved last Friday, which makes today our 5th day here. The place is coming together slowly. But we all
❤️ it.

Except from all the packing we had time for a little bit of vacation. A well needed mini one. We went out to the archipelago. Bae's family have a place there. And I totally love it out there. Hope to make out there once more before the so called summer ends.

Oh and I went out for the first time since Zayn was born. Kumba had a release party that I went to. It was such a long time we saw each other.

As soon as we've settled down I'm going to better on the blogging and vlogging❣️

Guess my favorite color right now. Or at least one of my favorite colors when in comes to interior.
Pictures👇🏾

We're definitely going to have this color in the kitchen. We already bought the placemats (bordstabletter) in the green color. And then we're going to have the Bitz serie as our dinnerware (servis) the dark grey one😍 (pictures down below) I just regret that we didn't buy more placemats since we've 10 chairs now. Oh well! But except big family dinners at our place now.

Back to the green color!

We or I can't make up my mind if we should have this color on our headboard. Or should we just go with all white in the bedroom?

I know imagine all white with kids in the house!
🙈

What do you guys think? Comment below.

I would be so happy if these chairs below could be ours for the kitchen island.
😍

Goodnight

And on another lever!!!
I get social media, at least I think I do. Everybody has their page and post whatever they like without people judging them.

But a big BUT there's something's that are appropriate and some things that are INAPPROPRIATE!

And something really inappropriate crossed my eyes today on Facebook. Someone shared a video where a man was having sex with a dog. Like common. I couldn't believe my eyes. I'm a fast scroller so I had to scroll back. I wanted to read the caption but I couldn't stand it. I reported the video and Blocket that person asap from my account. This happened around 12 in the morning and it's soon 12 in the night. I've been burned! For F*ck sake some people are on another level of disturbed! Not sure if that's the right word even.

UPDATE ON MY LIFE:

We've packed 4 boxes. Not much and so much more to do. On Wednesday/Thursday were going away for a mini weekend to celebrate midsummer at one of my favorite places 🤗 L❤️VE at first sight❣️

Malik had his first day of football school with AIK today. He was so exhausted that he took a nap when he came home. and trust me our kids energy are on another level.

Zayn is crawling and stood up for the first time by himself. Not for too long but for a parents every milestone your kid takes it's a celebration 🎉

Mayah has been home to and she's starting cheerleading in August/September so you can guess what's on her mind 24/7.

Goodnight

Morning ❤️

Yesterday was Maliks graduation 👨🏾‍🎓 and the weather gods were were on our side. We went to his school where they had the graduation celebration. After that we took the kids to eat at their favorite restaurant.
Malik is going to train with AIK this summer, so after we were done eating we had to find him some football shoes and the whole shabang. He grows out of his shoes and clothes to fast.

We were supposed to end the celebration with some mud cake. But all of us were really tired. Even the kids cause they didn't even mention it. But today is cozy Friday and we love us some mud cake 🤗

We finally got a moving date yaaaaay. Knock on wood! If everything is done properly and no changes needs to be done we're going to move very very very soon. Very very very soon in like we should've start packing weeks ago. But we're here chilling like we ain't moving soon.
But hopefully we're going to start packing today. The only place that's giving me a headache is the kitchen and the basement. I don't even want to think about the basement 😫

Time for me to make some phone calls and get effective. The hours goes by so fast💨

What are your plans for today?

Yup, that's exactly how our house is going to look like now until we move. So anybody who visits us except a lot of boxes. Tomorrow we're going to start packing and throwing things we don't need.

Me and Bae have been so tired these past days, but we're getting back to normal. It has been a couple hectic weeks. Even in Dubai, but in a good way. You know how it is when you go on a vacation. You want to do and see everything before you go back home. Which equals early mornings and late nights. But it was so worth it.

All the kids are sleeping and Bae is taking a nap next to me. Our youngest has a fever 🤒 My poor baby 👶🏾 But he's still a happy baby although he's sick ❤️I say it once again, I think he's teething. His dad rolls his eyes at me every time I say that 😂 Cause I've been saying it for months now.

I was supposed to meet up with Patricia today, a new friend of my mine. We've never meet just been talking through phone. But we share the same passion FOOD 🙌🏾
But we couldn't make it since Zayn got sick and she had to go back home to Malmö.
Otherwise it has been a good week. We've been chilling, had our usual cozy Friday, family breakfast and quality time at it best. Bae had a game on Saturday and they drew 1-1 against Södertälje. After that the guys had a BBQ get together at our place. So I took the opportunity to catch up with my series since the kids were with Bae.

How was your weekend?

Today it was Mayah's yearly summer picnic at her day care. It's like their own graduation👩🏾‍🎓but a daycare version. The weather was on our side, it wasn't raining.

I've given up on the summer since it don't seem to be any. Time for a last min vacay somewhere with the kids this time. My parents were here and visited they just left today as well. It's always nice to have them over. I love the bond they've with the kids. So we've basically been spending a lot of time with them.

I'm so tired. You guys can't even imagine. But we need to start packing because our moving date is just around the corner. We haven't got an exact date yet. But they're going to inspect the place on the 27th of this month and if everything is correct we can move in.

So our house will be full of boxes soon. I want us to pack everything that we can and just live with the things we really need. But first some rest.

Here's some pictures from these past days.

❤️

I took princess out on a mother and daughter date. We did our nails
💅🏾

We celebrated the Swedish national day at Rålis
