Tapas & girl talk

Just got back from a dinner for two with my bestie A. My sleepy little hometown got it's very first tapas resto and of course we wanted to try it out! The food was good, the company better. There were only a few free tables when we arrived, still the restaurant was awfully quiet... People were using their indoor voices. I felt like I was entering someone's living room. You know the feeling, like you're interrupting some secret conversation. Lets just say it wasn't quiet for long after we entered. I really miss my friend. She completes me! And she's just like me, and not too many people are. So this night of gossip and girl talk was well needed and much longed for. At 9.30 pm my dad texted me saying Baby S wanted me to come home. And when my baby calls I come running! Even though I was a bit bummed that our fun evening ran short, I completely forgot all about when I entered the door and my sweet baby girl came running to welcome me home..

Ricky Gervais

Tears running down my face, laughing so hard I could hardly breathe. Ricky Gervais show in Stockholm. Say no more. Mad.

Trying to convince my baby girl that this mix of salmon, noodles and spinach is yummie.. She's not buying it.. Can you blame her? Tell me, would YOU eat this!?

Jingle bells, jingle bells, glamma all the way!

A few weeks ago, we started hiring a babysitter a few hours once a week. Even though I feel a little guilty over this (I mean, I'm at home all day, why would I need someone else to take care of my baby?), watching Baby S laugh and play with her new friend (who has three times the energy I have btw) reassures me we both could benefit from a little time apart. I think it's good for her not to be attached to me all day long.

This week I I wanted to relax and do something for myself. So I booked a manicure. It was supposed to last 45 min, but after 1,5 hours only one hand was glamorous. The babysitter had other obligations, so I rushed home with my one hand mani, stuffed S in the stroller and walked back to the salon to get my other hand polished. S fell asleep on the way and did mom a huge favor by sleeping through the whole thing.

So mama got her bling on! What do you think? Pretty, ain't it?! It's from OPI's latest collection "Skyfall". Love it!

Lionel Richie loves me, really.. he LOVES me! 
I'm talking punch drunk head over heels crazy in love! 
He showed up at my apt last night, drunk as a skunk, begging me to leave my husband for him.. (don't ask me how we know each other or how our worlds came to cross) And it's not the current Lionel Richie we're talking about, but the younger version.. this handsome stud showed up on my doorstep..

For some reason I let him in. He continued his sobbing and begging. And then he started singing (no, not "Hello", some romantic love song). It was bad. Seriously, if Lionel Richie shows up in your home and starts to serenade you, you'd expect it to be good. Like an angel just landed in my living room and opened it's mouth. Not like a cat that's being strangled. Just saying.

Anyway, this dream really took me by surprise. Wasn't aware I had young Lionel on my mind.

Ice cream for dinner

Ice cream for dinner is great. If you're 1,5 years and have a throat infection. Mom said so!

Happy Holidays!

Today we light the first candel and I'm really getting in the Christmas spirit. Drinking glühwein, eating lussekatter and decorating our home.

Hope you have a peaceful first of Advent. Here's a playlist for you to enjoy!
