Monday the 26th of December out at Bodega Negra and Avenue...

In Sweden Christmas Day is a big party day. But it doesn't really work like that here since the Americans celebrate Christmas on the 25th! I spent Christmas with the family and had the two following days off so I decided to pay a visit to my beloved city and party one day later than usual to a least keep some of the traditions going lol. I thought I would make it in earlier on Monday but when I was done with everything I planned on doing it was actually very late haha...so I made my way straight to Bodega Negra from Penn station around 10pm. I convinced Elin to come by and Freja was there with a friend too! Dream team. After some food and drinks we made it to Avenue where I had to take a picture with this belieber friendly painting. As I might've mentioned earlier Avenue is becoming more of a favorite club. I know a lot of promoters that goes there too so there's always someone to say hi to and hang out with. We had some pizza at artichoke to end the night before we made it to Rod's to get some sleep.

Baby bro on the beach...

We are here! Punta Cana baby! My brother came to me in jersey on Tuesday afternoon and slept one night before we took an early flight here. It was pretty windy and cloudy when we got here as you can see on the picture and it just got worse during the evening. Hopefully we'll see some sun tomorrow.

The hotel is crazy! It's so big and my brother booked a really nice room in the middle of it. We have our own bed, a jacuzzi in the room, a big balcony, bottles of vodka/champagne/wine cold in the minibar and free room service 24/7! It's way beyond awesome! The hotel has tons of pools and restaurants and offers all you can imagine.

We had a chill first afternoon here. Had some snack at the pool and hung out in the room before we went for dinner at a Brazilian restaurant. We swung by the daily show and the casino and grabbed some ice cream before we went back to our room where we are now. Time to sleep so we're ready for the day ahead! Sweet dreams...

First weekend out of 2017...

It's very rare that I'm waking up on a Saturday morning feeling "Daaamn, why did I go out last night?!" Yesterday was no exception even though I was afraid that was going to happen...I was supposed work to midnight and had my mind set on staying in. But when they told me that I was off after putting the kids down it feel so weird to just stay in when I'm sometimes rushing and running out the door when I'm off around midnight. I was terribly tired and couldn't wait to lay down in my bed by I also thought that's exactly what I've been doing all week. So I pulled my shit together and took the train in at 10.45 pm. Proud and disappointed at myself at the same time, putting some make-up on while listening to the perfect "I'm-in-a-music-video-train-ride" artist - Ed Sheeran!

I met up with Elin, seen earlier on the blog, a Swedish Au pair friend living on the UES. We decided to go down to Paul's at the Roxy hotel in TriBeCa for a change. We usually just go with our guys to Lavo but Elin did absolutely not want to do that that Friday. I've only been to Paul's one time before but that was just a quickie. This time is e stayed for a little bit and enjoyed the good music and beautiful interior. But we missed our other friends and the free drinks so we went up to the meatpacking district and Phd. We decided to say hi to Sam and get some drinks there since Elin absolutely not wanted to go to Lavo because we "always" go there. It was good to see Sam again but we looked at each other after a while and said asked each other "Ehmmm...Lavo?!" Smh...Haha a few minutes later we were off in a cab! Elin knew a bouncer that got us in and got our jackets and bags for us so we didn't have to stand in line - so nice! So around 2pm we came walking(read running) in, still pretty sober and got the best welcoming of all from our six favorite promoters. After the best hug party ever we were ready to get lit - and what a night. So much fun! The DJ was killing it, I wish we came earlier. But I doubt that the hugs would've been better then haha. Yes, when you don't have a boyfriend you live of the love and hugs you get from your friends lol. We danced, threw ice and drank like pros. We didn't leave the club until the lights came on #partygoals

I put some other pictures up there too from my Saturday and Sunday but I have more pictures on my camera so I'll show you them and tell you about the other days latero!

Haha I don't like always ending my posts like this but whatever. Thank you friends for always showing me a good time and giving me a good laughter in the city(Haha I accidentally wrote butt first lmao). Love you!

Oh how much I love this girl!

I asked Siri a question when Annie got out of the bath. She answered - I have 50 days left to spend with this beautiful human.

She hated me when I forced her to get in the bath. Usually she is the best and listens to me but not today. Her belly hurted after dinner and I told her that she might feel better when she get to sit down and relax in a warm bath. After a few meltdowns and screaming sessions she made it in and was splashing around like the happiest girl ever. I hate to be the person that says "I told you so!" but I had to so she'll remember till next time that I'm always right! That applies to you my friends too btw - apart from when I'm wrong though!

Sonny got a new snake from Auntie Melissa that's visiting and he also put some other toys that he got to borrow from a friend today in the bath so he was very happy and busy playing with them. He's an angel and a devil. I love when he picks the angelic side of himself.

Annie didn't wanna get out of the bath after I washed them as expected...After some more crying and screaming she eventually laid down on my lap as I blow-dried her hair. When I was done I told her it was time to put her jammies on as I was going to dry Sonny but she said "I'm not done with you!" as she snuggled up close for a hug. And of course all drama was forgotten and forgiven.

This sneaky, smart, adorable and funny girl! My favorite time with the kids are bath time. Haha we have so much fun. We always sing, dance, jump around and are being silly in general. I get so many hugs and so much oral love. Today she told me that "forever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever... that's how long I want you to stay!". How precious! And that she loved me "to the moon and the sun to earth and through all the planets..." and I don't remember where it ended haha but you get it.

I am so grateful that these two monkeys ended up being "my kids" for a year. I'm gonna miss them both so much! Making them laugh is my favorite thing to do and not having them around is gonna be so weird. I guess this post is just to remind myself and remember one of the crazy and funny evenings I spent with them.

​New Year's Eve celebrated in TriBeCa...

I'm used to being off on this day. Have a chill morning and get ready during the day before the celebrations are starting early. This is not exactly what happened this year haha...I was exhausted from the lack of sleep from the night before so I basically just tried to get through the day at first. I told you about my morning and after I dropped of Annie at the train station at eleven I was working to 8.30pm. This meant that I basically had to be ready with almost everything before I started to work so that I would make it on time. Everything went well but I was so tired. So when I tried to get the kids to sleep by tickling them gently I fell asleep on the floor next to them. I woke up at 8.47 pm which was the time we had to leave for the train. We were about to make it cause we got a ride to the train station. I changed and got my stuff in like 10 minutes. But I realized that I forgot my phone at home when we were in the car...so we had to go back and get it and Uber our way in there cause we totally missed the train. My host dad felt bad and got the car for us - Thank you!

To top it off my new red lipstick had been open and a piece broke off I the bag so all of my make up was covered in it. I'm used to doing the make up in a cab now but it's not that easy when everything is dirty and smushy...

After a few more struggling moments we finally made it to the venue in TriBeCa on 221 West Broadway. I celebrated with some new and old friends and familiar faces from out partying. 

I'm gonna let the pictures speak from themselves and say thank you to Troy and Darrius for a fun party and thank you to my friends for great company.

Bree and me <3

I can't believe that this weekend coming up is gonna be our last weekend together! This is making me so sad...We met for the first time during one of both of our firsts nights out but didn't say more than hi. Next time, a few weeks later, we met in class. Both of us were taking the "Niagara falls travel class" up in Harlem. We didn't become best friends after the first day but since our trip to Niagara falls you've been stuck with me. Our friendship just came naturally and I always feel that I can be myself with you. Our friendship is not forced and we give and take in a balanced way (Haha at least that's how I feel lmao). We don't need to text each other all the time, we know. We know that if it's a Friday and we're off - we're turning up! Haha...Bree, I really love you and are so grateful for all the wierd, crazy, amazing, funny and awesome moments I've got to share with you! Thank you Simon and thank you Niagara Falls for bringing us together. I'm forever grateful!

Annie and me in Glen Ridge...

Annie came to visit me over New Years! She went back to Philly over the holidays to spend some time with her old host family and went to me for two days before she headed back to her second host family in San Francisco. I was working on New Year's Eve but we had an hour in the morning when we went to a local store and bought ourselves an matching outfit. Easily my new fav - so cosy! These pictures are taking the day after though when we went for a quick walk before I drove her to the train station. So nice to hang out with an old friend from at home here in America. Hopefully I can come visit her in SanFran before she moves back home!

2016 - the year when I got another family, kids and friends in America. The year when I challenged myself and my health(lol) in new ways. I pushed my limits and opened my mind and my heart to the beautiful world out there. This year will always have a special place in my heart in so many different ways. I've been acting like a 16 year old and a 30 year old at the same time. Taking more responsibility than ever and at the same time acting more careless than ever. What this crazy way of living has done to me is more than just drained me of energy occasionally. As a conclusion I've come to appreciate myself more. My values, my thoughts and my actions. I've learned from my mistakes and evolved from them. There's a reason why I am the person I am and why I'm acting the way I am. I am proud of myself for always trying to be the best version of me even though I'm not succeeding all the time. Everyone has bad days and bad moments but when it comes down to it I feel pretty good about myself. Feels pretty weird to put that down in words but here we go. And I am proud of YOU too and thankful that you're a part of my world! Being friends with me can be hell sometimes. Let 2017 be the year of peace and love!
