A gold cup of coffee

Yesterday was a lovely, relaxing Friday. I actually love the beginning of the weekend, starting my Friday of by listening to Surah Al-Kahf. I felt a little bit extra after filming my Sunday video so I pampered up and went out to the playground. My son loves it there and he’s become so active, wanting to walk around everywhere. After an hour there we made our way back home.

His nap was long over due so I tucked him in and started making dinner. In the evening again we made our way to his grandfather aka my father. He always starts of really shy but when he’s warmed up and used to the environment he is his own self – playing, walking and talking.

 This was yesterday brunch, sipping a cup of coffee from my new gold mug. My mum wanted to spoil me a little when we were out shopping on Wednesday, and even though I actually didn’t need these cups, they looked so inviting and great for pictures. So I got two and they have both already been in use.

Today I’m thinking about talking a stroll out to the playground again but first I have to edit tomorrows video. I’ll be sharing my tips on how I lost my baby weight and how to start working out again after having a child. After that video I’m done with baby talk for a while and will be back making ‘day in the life’ or fashion/beauty related videos.

I hope you have a great weekend!

An eventful day with my favorite people

Here I am getting lost in the endless space called the world wide web. Because it truly is a big web you get cough up in. But suddenly a lightning thought hits me and I remember  I wanted to update you. Today was such an eventful day and spend with two of the handful of my favorite people.
For the longest time I’ve been wanting to go mini golfing and today we finally drove 30 minutes into the city and found a wonderful place. It was a bit crowded when we arrived but all the school kids who occupied the playground eventually left. And after lunch we slowly went our way to the park.

In deep concentration while figuring out how to make this shot. I actually ended up with 57 points in the end which is average but I did win the match between my mum and I.

6 pounds for 18 holes and an hour later we finished. Just in time before the rain started to pour down. Luckily the little one fell asleep just as we started our game and woke up just before we finished.

The sun only picked out a couple of hours in the early morning and afternoon before it turned quite cold and cloudy so I’m glad I wore something warmer. Not bad being a hijabi in Scandinavia when the summer is very bearable.

Late Sunday breakfast

Today started off quite late but I guess thats allowed on Sundays. I fell back to sleep after being up from 8 to 10 am. And we all stayed in bed till 1 pm. Just about right for the weekend I think. Other than relaxing today, I’ve cleaned my car and put on a load of laundry. I’m planning on doing some creative work but I just have to get started with it. That’s always the hardest part, actually start with any project. Once I’ve started I can go on for hours.

I did plan on doing a workout as well but I think that has to wait till tomorrow. My body is extremely sore so I’ll take today as a rest day. I’ve also posted a new video on YouTube, so if you’re interested and have seven minutes to spare, you can check it out right here.

Happy Sunday!

Hour by hour

I thought it would be fun to share how my day goes about. With that said, no day is the same, but there is usually a common thread. A lot of playing, a little sleeping and a lot of eating.


07.30 a.m. – Every day starts early when you have a four month old. I hear the little one is awake and it’s time for breakfast in bed. After a quick breakfast it’s time to wake up and change the nappy and let the day begin. Now it’s two hours of playtime while I try to eat my breakfast and occasionally check social media.

09.30 a.m. – Time for a two hour nap (hopefully). And I can sleep a couple of hours as well. The upside to waking up early is that you allow yourself a nap whenever the baby sleeps. And I generally fall asleep as quickly as the baby.

11.30 p.m. – The day begins for the second time, and after some food and a diaper change we can play again. I need some food too and that’s usually lunch. Consisting of two, or three, slices of bread and a much needed coffee. We play and I try to do some tasks in between.

2.30 p.m. – It’s time to go out, ordinarily after the baby has had some food and a change. Whether it’s a trip to the shopping center or just a stroll down the street, nevertheless it’s nice to get out of the house.


3 p.m. – After a 30 – 40 minute walk we arrive home again, often with a sleepy baby. It’s time for a snack, mostly some fruit or nuts. It’s time to think about dinner as well, always a dilemma – steak, soup or chicken?

6 p.m. – The afternoon is spent playing, eating and maybe a 30 minute nap. Dad is also home and we slowly get the baby ready for bed. Usually it’s just change into PJ’s but twice a week there is also a bath.

7 p.m. – Dinner is made and the parents can finally eat as well. The baby is getting a little bit uneasy ad we can tell it’s time to go to sleep soon.

8 p.m. – We can finally breath out and enjoy the evening for ourselves. Watching “The Flash”, sewing or reading a book, either way, enjoying the quite sound of the night.

23 p.m. – I finally fall asleep, a half hour later than what I would like, but at least I get a couple of hours of sleep before I have to feed the baby again.

Happy Wednesday

I’ve already awake the last five hours, eaten breakfast & lunch, which usually doesn’t happen before I’m at work. I’ve also finished painting the wall in the living room and the cabinet doors in our room, which concludes my DIY project. The clock is ticking away and I’m off to work soon.

I’ve seen the most incredible full moon the last couple of days and it can still be seen over the horizon in the early morning. And when I see a view so magnificent I can’t help but to think that no man could ever paint a picture that beautiful. I even tried to take some photographs but I couldn’t capture the colors and the full size of it. It truly is created perfectly by God.

I wish you all a happy Wednesday! Enjoy the day that has been given to you.

Lunch recipe

While I’m spending my days sleeping, working out and eating I’ve had enough time to try out new recipes and also eating three day leftovers. Anyway, what I wanted was to share this easy but so delicious lunch recipe.

Lunch-Break

What you will need:

♥ 2 eggs ♥ Salt, pepper and chicken seasoning ♥ 1 tomato ♥ 1 onion ♥ 1 feed garlic ♥ Grated cheese

1. Whip the eggs together & add a bit of water or milk  2. Spice with salt, pepper and chicken seasoning 3. Warm a pan and add the cut onion and garlic 4. After a few minutes add the eggs and tomato at once 5. Finish with some grated cheese on top and let the omelet roast on a low heat.

You can eat the omelet alone or with some bread which I have done with heated mini baguettes with garlic butter.

Shhh.. the secret is chicken seasoning

Weekends never last

I was babysitting this furry ball this weekend and I must say, even though I love the little energy bomb she is, I now know that I’m so not ready to handle a dog. She is so sweet and innocent but always needing someone to play with and having all the attention – such a beauty queen. I must say that she was quit scared of our cat. Safe to say there was a little whining from the fur ball and a couple of growls from the boss aka our little sweet cat but as long as they held their distance it went fine.

My brother came out for a visit today and because he doesn’t live so far away now. A perfect way for us to make an effort to see each other more. Everyone acting so busy with their job and studying that you almost forget the people who’ve been around you your whole life. It was really good to see him again, and after a hair cut on the house we made some lunch and went from a long walk with Milli. The night sneaked up on us shortly and after 1,5 hours outside it was time to say goodbye.

My evening is also going to an end because I’m feeling way to tired to stay up. So much planned for tomorrow, but we’ll see if I’ll manage it all. Last day off before I have to go back to work on Tuesday so I’m in no way going to stress.
