Had my boxing class yesterday. It was a really fun class. First time ever(?) I think that there were more boys than girls.
When I was done I got a text from Kim saying “I made pancakes, come over”. I mean, who says NO to pancakes?!?!
Today is Friday and we have music class coming up next

Spent our morning at the Little beans cafe. Such a fun place to go to!! Me like. It’s like a little mini village for kids.
The afternoon was super chill. The girls napped for 3 hours so I was watching empire the entire time, and did some laundry!!
Yesterday I had all three kids home with me. We met up with Ymke and her host kids at the Nature museum. A really fun place for kids (and adults), entertainment for hours haha.
We saw some turtles, fish, snakes, frogs and they also have a room FULL of butterflies. They’re so pretty. There was a really beautiful blue butterfly, but I didn’t succeed to take a good picture of it :(
After work I went to the gym for a quick boobs and triceps workout. Then I met up with Kim and another Swedish au pair at the golden Apple. Super nice!
Yesterday after work I went to get a massage. My back was really stiff in the morning so I needed to do something about it. Took a 55 minute massage, so nice!
After that Kim came and picked me up and we went to pick up her hostkid. When we got home we made Swedish pancakes. Yumyumyum!!
Went to the field museum two days ago. Had my au pair meeting there. Talked for a couple of minutes then we could go do our own thing. Fun fun!
Normally it costs money to go there, but Sunday was a free admission day for Illinois residence.
They had a Jurassic Park exhibition which we just had to go in to. I really liked it, even tho it’s more for kids. They made a REALLY good job with the dinosaurs and everything, I’m impressed!
We also went through the Egyptian exhibition. It was lot to take in so we went home after that. There will be some more free admission days coming up, so we will go back and go through the rest then :D
Today went by pretty fast. Both girls napped for 3 hours so I had a really chill afternoon!
My plan was to do a back workout at the gym, but I didn’t really have the motivation to workout by myself so I took an X-IT class instead, which I’m really glad I did. Burned over 600 calories! Not that that matters, but anyways haha.
Just got out of the shower about to get upstairs and make some food. Since my stupid computer just stopped working I’m gonna have to watch Empire in the living room and not in my comfy bed :( Life is SO hard, I know...! ;)
1 picture is after and the 2nd picture is before!
Our plans for Saturday got changed in the last minute so walking back we stopped at a hair saloon to get our hairs fixed. Adam was there maybe 30 minutes and I was there for 3,5 hour... not fair!
I cut it and did some more highlights. In the back I’m very happy with the result, but in the front I’m not so happy with it... gonna have to have my hair up for a couple of days until it starts to blend in...
Monday morning, new week. Just had my breakfast, about to drive my oldest hostkid to school!
We both got a feeling to Christmas decorate the apartment so now it finally feels like Christmas here too. I must say that this is my favorite holiday!
We have our tree up, stockings, lights and Christmas music (of course!!) and some hot chocolate ;)
Since we’re in this mood I think we will watch a Christmas movie tonight hahaha.
Woke up to a white winter land this morning.
It’s WAY too early for snow but at the same time I LOVE waking up to see snow falling outside.
Had music class with the girls in the morning. Fun as always!
Now I’m relaxing in my bed. Took a little nice nap.
I’m gonna get up here in a little and make some coffee and pack my bag for the weekend!
#tb to a sunny day in Boston!
Went to the gym after work, had my boxing class (as every Thursday haha). Kicked some ass today so I feel like I deserve to just lay in my bed now and relax!
