The afternoon was just stress stress and stress. Thought I had more time than I actually had. Didn’t even have time to eat at home before picking up Z so had to bring oatmeal in the car haha!

After soccer it was straight home and just drop the kids and then hurry to the gym for boxing class! Everyone was killing it today, really good class!
My coach likes to bring new boxing toys/equipment to class every week and today he had some weird thing that seriously looked like a gagball (see picture below) haha. Have to say that it was REALLY hard to hit it. With this thing it’s not about strength, it’s about focus and timing. I got so frustrated because I missed pretty much all the time :((((( next time ;)

Now I’m FINALLY on season 4 on Empire!!!! And since we have that on demand I can watch it in my bed and don’t have to sit upstairs anymore, yaaaay! :D

Whenever we don’t have any activities or plans we seem to always go to the nature museum. But I mean, it’s fun there and they have 5 million different things so you will explore new things every time. And it’s free! So why not?!

Spent the morning there and now the girls are sleeping. I just watched the fall finale of Chicago PD! Such a good show. And if it wasn’t for that show, I would have never met Adam! So thank you Chicago PD for my boyfriend ;);)

Now I’m gonna change into workout clothes, clean the kitchen, pack the diaper bag and get ready for soccer class with big boy!

I don’t know if I told you but for a couple of weeks ago I did some more blonde highlights in my hair just to freshen it up, but I did the mistake to go to a school for hat. A mistake I will never make again, I can promise you that.

It didn’t look good at all, it looked stripy and didn’t blend in good with my natural hair color. It was seriously my color, blonde stripe, my color, blonde stripe and so on...

So yesterday I decided to do something about it. I went to Sally’s beauty and bought some hair color, went over to Kim and VOILÀ. My hair is red again and I feel SOO much better! It’s good to be back ;)

Now I’m at the movies with Kim, we’re gonna watch Daddy’s home 2!

Christmas is my favorite holiday because everything is so nice and cozy - the people, the decorations, the music and everything else that comes with. Also because it’s about being with your family and loved ones.

This will be my second Christmas away from my family so right now life feels a little bit harder. I miss them so much. My parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, my best friend and especially my dog. I’m just walking around feeling sad all the time. Christmas is (for me) not the same thing here as it is in Sweden which also makes it a little bit harder. I would do anything to just be with them for one day!

Yesterday I got a card from my grandma and in it (besides a lot of text) was a very old picture of me from one of our many many “Christmas baking times”, and that made me seriously lose it and miss my family even more. In that moment I just wished that I was standing in my grandmas kitchen making gingerbread cookies and eating too much dough until I got a stomach ache.

In case you didn’t know, we have a Nutella cafe here in Chicago which is AWESOME! And it’s also the first Nutella cafe to ever open. Kinda cool ;)

Six months later I FINALLY went there. It opened this summer but it was always a line and I didn’t feel like standing in line so I waited haha. Went there with Kim Friday, and it was SOOO good! At the same time, I can make the same things at home. Just give me a jar with Nutella and I’m on it.
But it’s kinda cool that we have a Nutella cafe :D

Late last night/early this morning my baby finally came home to me! Yesterday went so slow just because I was just sitting waiting for him to come home. Thank god I had Kim next to me to make everything more fun!!

Today we slept in, very much needed. Then we were just chilling around at home. Later in the afternoon we took the train downtown just to do something. We had dinner at Le Pain (I think??) super yummy. Then we just walked around the bean and watched people ice skating. Our last stop for the night was at Ghirardelis for some hot chocolate. We also took a little ride around Chicago in the back of a bike, so much fun haha!
A perfect Sunday!

Now I’m laying in my bed about to fall asleep! Goodnight.

Can’t believe that it’s December ALREADY?!?! This year is almost over, like what the hell happened?!

Yes I was expecting it to be snowing this morning when I looked out the window, but NOPE. No snow ❄️
Instead it’s very hot and nice outside today haha.

Went to music class this morning, yaaay! Now the girls are sleeping and I’m relaxing on the couch. Have a lot of laundry to fold so can’t lay here for too much longer.

I’m also feeling a lot better today, but I’m still coughing up my lungs and this pain over my chest is KILLING me. Feels like someone’s slowly trying to choke me 😩

When I woke up yesterday morning my head felt very mushy and weird, but I thought it was because I took medicine for my cough a little too late and didn’t get enough sleep on it. So we went on our play date as usual. The more the time went I felt worse and worse so when we got home I took the temperature and sure as hell I had a fever, 100.5. No wonder I didn’t feel good!

Today the fever is gone but I’m still coughing my lungs out. I’m so sore from all the coughing too, really annoying.

This morning we went to the field museum with another au pair and her hostkid. Superfun! Explored some new things I missed last time I was there.

Now I’m eating a little snack and about to get ready for big boys soccer class!
