Pictures from my Friday and Saturday morning in the city...

I've been so bad on keeping you posted here - so many things going on all the time! But as the head line says...this is my last weekend here on the east coast. Feels so weird to write that down. This is my life now and I'm just about to leave it. I'm not gonna move back to Sweden though. I've found a new family in Dallas, TX, that I'm moving to on Thursday morning. Aaahh, need to write a post about that! I have so many feelings and memories now that I need to tell you about. Hopefully I'll make some time for you guys in Dallas...Before that I'm gonna try to enjoy my last days here!

I just wanted to tell you about my weekend so far. I was working until six on Friday and we all decided to go out on a last family dinner at a local restaurant after that. I took a train to the city when we were done and went bowling with some new friends and Becca at Chelsea piers. I was really bad haha...I remember myself being better! We stopped by Tao for a little bit before we went home. So crazy to think that that was my last time at Tao in a while. I've spent SO many nights there. But the best thing was when I was standing there with a water bottle in my hand dancing for the last time - I felt that I was done in a way. I've been going all in this year and I can really leave this place feeling that I truly did the most of it.

We met up Elin and Sofie for a brunch at Friedman's right next to Penn station before I went home for work. Such a cosy start to the weekend!

Tons of pictures from my Sunday watching Super Bowl for the first time...

Sunday's have come to be one of my favorite days here. Well usually cause it's my day off but also because New Yorkers are pretty good at having a "Sunday Funday!". I usually spend it at Bounce but because it was the Super bowl Sunday they did a pop-up at the highline ballroom to fit all the people and to watch the game on a big screen. I met up with Becca there at 5pm and Elin and Freja came too. We got a great spot at the table right in front of the big screen. We watched the game meanwhile we enjoyed some classic sports bar food and drinks. It was super fun but we got a little bored and decided to change location and went to Lavo after Lady Gagas halftime performance. Becca and Freja took off so it was just me and Elin. The game started to become really exciting when we got to Lavo and I was watching every last minute while I was sipping on a drink. This was actually the first game I really "watched" and it was so fun. I don't think I understand it all yet but hopefully I'll learn! Definitely need to watch one live soon! As you all know the patriots won after doing the first touchdown on extra time.

We went upstairs and had some dinner in the restaurant before the day ended and I went down to Becca and had a sleepover again since I was off Monday. Thumbs up for Super Bowl!

Me and Becca had a pretty day last friday...

After 9 hours of work and a 3 hour nap I woke up by myself feeling relaxed and cosy until I realized I'd overslept for two hours! I'd put the alarm on am instead of pm...That calm feeling quickly changed to stress since I was supposed to be sitting on a bus 40 minutes ago and I was still in bed. I guess you're not surprised by now. This is what my life looks like basically haha... so I did what I always do and got my shit together and made it to the next bus.

I was meeting up with Becca after she was done with work at Megu - an Asian restaurant in meatpacking. I was late but not that late so there was still some food left for me. Hadn't eaten since lunch (since I fell asleep) so I was pretty hungry. After Megu we went next door to Tao for a night of fun. And it was, so much fun! We woke up tired and hungover in her host family's beautiful apartment in TriBeCa. Could've been worse...

So Becca lives in the city but hasn't really spent time in Brooklyn. So I decided to bring her to two of my favorite spots in Williamsburg. Five leaves for lunch and Westlight at the William Vale hotel for coffee and a cake. Everything was so delicious and we had a great time and we realized that we are more alike then we could've imagined haha. For every ten minute that had passed we had found out another thing that we had in common. So scary haha at the end we were not even surprised anymore!

We ended the night at Phd and Avenue with her boy D. Such a fun day that goes down to history!

My new go-to salad...

So apparently this my favorite lunch at the moment cause I keep making it. What I love about it it's that it's so easy to make and it's super healthy. The key is to be prepared. I always try to have quinoa boiled and ready in the fridge amongst with oven roasted sweet potato cubes or stripes. Today I even had red onions chopped and ready so this literally took me less then five minutes from the beginning to the end. Let me tell you what I put in it...

Spinach
Quinoa
Sweet potato
Red onions
Cocktail tomatoes
Avocado
Feta cheese
Almonds
Smoked salmon
Hummus
Olive oil
Salt
Pepper


Yummy in my tummy!

Afternoon tennis sessions...

Both me and my brother likes to stay active so we went to try out the tennis court at the hotel with pleasure. Neither of us has played in a long time unless you count the very serious sessions with Felicia on my backyard...but we were decent anyways. I surprised both of us and won the first game (one set) with 6-2! We don't have to talk about the rest of the times that we played. I don't know what I happened - I don't wanna say beginners luck haha...When we were done playing we ran back to our room to change to our bathing suits to later continue to the pool. My kind of exercise during vacation!

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.
