Both girls napped for over 3(!!) hours, which means that I got a nice and quiet afternoon. Sweet!

After work I went to the gym for a CrossFit class. Really kicked my ass because now I’m laying here in my bed with no energy left haha.

My baby was so sweet and came by after work to say goodbye to me before my trip tomorrow. That made my day. So sweet.

No, now I’m gonna back and watch Empire before I hit the pillow.

I had an amazing summer here in Chicago and can’t wait for the next one. I’m gonna try and sum up some of the most memorable stuff from each month.

June:
I went to Niagara Falls for a weekend class. So amazing and so beautiful.
A girl from the class over me in high school, who is an au pair in Seattle came visit me for a little BF-reunion.

July:
My beautiful family came and visit me. We went out on a lot of adventures and fun stuff. Helicopter tour, biked over Golden Gate Bridge and my parents got married. Finally!
I went with Kim to her host family’s lake house in Michigan to. We also spent two nights in a hotel.

August:
Kim and I went to see Shawn Mendez. So amazing!!! Such a good concert too.
I went with my boyfriend to Michigan to visit his family.
I surprised Adam with tickets to a cubs game!

September:
I went to Nashville with some Au pair friends. So cool! Awesome city. So different from Chicago. Me like.
Adam and I saw ED SHEERANS concert. That was amazing and a dream come true. To see Ed and to be there with my boyfriend and just be dorks who love each other while singing his songs.
We also went to see a Blackhawks - Redwings game. I’m on team Blackhawk and he is on team Redwing. Had a lot of fun teasing him when my team won, mohahaha!

Today is a very busy day. I have so much to do.
Do the kids laundry, do my own laundry, make pancakes for the family, pack my bags and so on.
And we also have our activities during the day.
But I kinda like when you have things to do, the day will go so much faster haha.

Right now I’m making the pancakes while the baby is sleeping and the little one is playing.

Yesterday was a real chill day with tv shows and snuggles. In the afternoon we went to my hostkids birthday party. They had a bouncy house which ofcourse I was playing in haha. I will never grow up from that kind of stuff.

When we got home we painted one part of my Halloween costume, I’m so excited for that!!
We also finished iZombie. Such a good show! The next season won’t come out until 2018 :(

This morning I had a meeting with my LCC and all the other au pairs. We went to a farmers market which was very nice. After that we walked to the Chicago sign to take some pictures. Can’t believe that it took me year to go there haha.

Now I’m chilling at home. Have been driving around looking for the last part to my costume. After the 4th store I gave up haha. How hard can it be to find a silver dress?!

My first night here in Chicago my host family took me to a restaurant called Crosby’s kitchen. I fell in love with their cornbread and food immediately. So I figured that we could go to that restaurant to celebrate my first year.
We even got the exact same table haha. Fate maybe?

Now I’m on the train on my way to Adam. We’re gonna meet up with one of my Swedish friends to hangout tonight.

I am SOOOO tired tho, so we’ll see how long I can stay up for haha

Finally it’s Friday!! This week has been soooo long. It felt like it was Friday two days ago but it was only Wednesday. Don’t know why this week was so slow. I just hope that the weekend will be slow too haha.

Yesterday I had my boxing class. Such a good class and it’s nice to get all the stress and frustrations out.
After that I had my extension meeting with my LCC. Everything looks good and I can stay her for another year ;)

Now I’m eating breakfast - crackers with egg and orange juice.
Woke up at like 6.30 and felt fully rested so I started my day earlier than normal haha.

In two hours I have music class with the girls!

I feel like it’s time for me to try something new and that’s why I’m going to start writing the blog in English! So that everyone can understand and to do something different.
But it’s also a way for me to practice my English even more.
I hope you’ll like it.

Den här dagen har varit helt kaos, därav inget bloggande.
Drog till gymmet efter jobbet, ben och rumpa stod på schemat idag. Försökte fokusera mycket på kontakt med musklerna.

Nu ligger jag i sängen och kollar PH!
Är väldigt trött så får se hur länge jag orkar vara uppe

Drog till gymmet när min värdmamma kom hem. Idag stod axlar och biceps på schemat. Fick ta det lite lugnt då jag inte vart på gymmet på ett tag, men jag köttade på rätt bra.

Nu sitter jag i köket och väntar på att vattnet ska koka (tar evigheter när man sitter bredvid) så att jag kan ta med mig lite te ner till mitt rum och lägga mig i sängen. Ikväll ska jag stänga av alla elektroniska prylar och läsa min bok.

Cooking class stod på schemat idag. Vi gjorde spinach and artichokedip. Vart lite tveksam först men det var RIKTIGT gott!!
Vi tog oss en härlig promenad dit och hem. Därefter lekte vi ute en stund i det fina vädret!

Nu har lilltjejen vaknat så vi ska leka lite innan det är dags att hämta bigboy från skolan.
