Christmas Spirit everywhere

I can feel Christmas is coming, and last weekend we sent to a "Bad Santa" Party and had good food and ended up going out and I danced like I never danced before, good times wurg good peeps.  My brother also left for Sweden, so I have spent a lot of time at the mall trying to find a gift for my parents and send out the last Christmas cards.

I can’t believe that Christmas is next week and yesterday I found out that I am off the 24th also, yeiiiii 4 day weekend. From Friday to next week, we have so many events to go to, but it’s all fun to meet up with all amigos and amigas. My dear friend Ahona will be here from Houston and my dear friends are hosting some party’s. Since I did Thanksgiving I going to enjoy all the events this year.

Yesterday, I took hubby to Hot Yoga and I am soooo proud that he made it without complaining, since he hates heat. I love the heat and I feel like it heals my body. I am going to start on a regularly base after New Year’s, I think it’s a good combo from just running and lifting weights all the time.

Today I am meeting up some girls to have dinner in DC and catch up, I saw them all at a birthday dinner on Saturday, but I sat far away from them so It will be nice to have som girl talk, and I love girl time.

I miss lucia, best day ever. I did see a lucia at the embassy the other day, but I want to see it on the 13th. I love Lucia. I wonder who is Sweden's lucia this year?

I have not had time to buy a new outfit for the holiday party, but I might just wear one of my dresses tomorrow. This one would have been perfect for a holiday company party at the office. I love anything with lace. 


Poor blogging

Skrivet den 2012-12-13 kl 05:04:29 i kategorin LIVET av Jenira

So I have not blogged for a while and it’s been crazy with my brother being here and a new job and some other things. My head is working harder than ever (trust me my poor brain has been on vacation for a long time). Work is going great and I love the people at the office, yesterday I met some new people at the office cause we had some kind of behavioral training and I met a lot of people from other departments.

Well I will try to be better at blogging cause I sure miss it. I can’t believe 2013 is coming in a couple of weeks. Looking back on 2012 it’s been a emotional rollercoaster. I mean I finally feel like I feel home here in US, but getting here has been a crazy ride and life has not been easy. But 2013 I have a different type of goal. I want to start living and stop worrying. My dad used to say: Don’t worry about the future, it comes soon enough. And I do worry a lot about everything all the time. My goal is to start living and smiling more and finding solutions that will make me happy and not worry so much.  Only hang out with people that makes me smile and gives me energy. 

Past weekend was a busy weekend and I don’t think we rested for 5 minutes, and by the time Monday was here I was more tired from the weekend. But I had a lot of fun going to my first Redskins game and winning the way we won made it all worth it. 

This weekend we have some plans already and some of them got cancelled, but my goal is to sleep in and relax a bit and then take everything as it comes. My brother is also leaving for Sweden.  But tomorrow is Thursday and my company is having its first Christmas party, somehow they are having three small parties and tomorrow is the first one and I look forward to eat some good food.


Of al days, this day had to be the coldest day of the week, but like all teachers used to say: There is no weather, only bad clothes (swedish saying).

BBQ tailgating

I had a jersey underneeth my jacket, but too cold to show it :)

Amazing feeling to see them live. 

Happy winners!


New facecream

Skrivet den 2012-12-06 kl 03:57:27 i kategorin LIVET av Jenira

I just bought this new face cream from Olay and so far I like it, I usually use Ole Henrikssen but I needed something thicker for the winter and this one is also an anti-aging cream. As you all know 2013 is the BIG 30 year, so it’s time to start I think.  It’s either that or I can wear my UGGs and I look like I am 8 year old.  

My home away from home

Well, we do spend so much time at work and being at a work in a environment that you actually want to be in ,is a feeling I have not felt in a lonooooog time. I absolutely love to have my own office and it’s kind of cozi and you are aloud to play Christmas music hihi. Everyone has so much Chritmas decoration, I have not come that far yet, but I have some “Julstjärnor”.

I have had so much to do today and its going to be even more tomorrow. My work schedule is full and by January, they will expect me to roll by myself, so I have to put up my game. It’s already Thursday tomorrow and on Saturday I am going to my Hubby’s Christmas party and this year I might even recognize a face or two, so I am looking forward to that.  I think I am going to wear a dress I have worn many times this summer, but spice it up with a belt. 

Sunday is also an exciting day for me, cause I am finally going to an live Redskins game. So, when I moved here I knew nothing about American football and I still don’t know everything, but I have to say that I love it. I find it soooo exciting, well only the Redskins game so far, but I almost can’t watch cause I can’t take the pressure. Therefore, I am excited to see our team for the first time. I have to buy a hat or something red, cause my both shirts are made for the summer. 

Oki, its time for me to finish writing my Christmas cards, I am a little late this year, hopefully I will be able to send them out by tomorrow. 

I am obsessed with these flower.

Christmas month is here

So first day is done and I have to say SO FAR so good, I don’t want to say too much, but I smiled the whole day and that’s a good thing, right? I got my own office and I have never had that before. I am more used to work in an open landscape, but having an own office feels very nice. The team seem so nice and my boss too. But one day at the time, I am very excited to learn the job and develop within this company. The company is called Healthy Directions and I work with their Marketing Team.  One great thing is that its only 10 min drive from my house, so that’s something I value a lot.

So my weekend has been really great, I had a relaxing Sunday and I went to the movies both Friday and Saturday. Saturday movie was good too, we saw Silver Linings Playbook but I had only had 3 hours sleep the night before when we saw Life of Pi with Monica, who spent the whole weekend at my house. That was a lot of fun and we ended up talking all Friday night until 5 in the morning and I woke up at 7.30 to run before I went to work at the Christmas SWEA bazar (dedication, damn right).

The Christmas Bazar was fun, but I was mostly in a room counting money all the time, I look forward to be at the bazar as a guest next year. The best part is always the lucia girls and it always gives me goose bumps and brings back a lot of happy memories. Monica had spent the night over and we went to a amazing restaurant called Cava (libanese/greek restaurant) with Azim and Munia.

My Sunday was amazing, I call it my SPA day:


·      I had Manicure and Pedicure with Monica

·      I took a warm bath with Epson Salt (apparently good for you)

·      I did a hair mask while listening to relaxing music.

·      Home made face mask with One spoon olive oil, one spoon honey and one spoon sugar = AMAZING!

·      Lid all candles and just relaxed.


That’s something everyone should do when you have some time, my Hubby was in Austin with my brother and his friends, and so I had some time over.

I am excited over my second day at work coming up tomorrow, I have so much to learn, but I am ready for it. I am going to bring some stuff to make my office a little more personal. I’ll take a picture and post it later.

The best Veggie burger EVER with Sweet potato Fries!

Nothing is small in this country.

This year I didn't shop as much as last year. I bought some Herrgård cheese, Prinsesstårta marsipan, vaniljsås and a ljusstake. 

I love Lucia, I was elected Lucia in 9th grade, an amazing experience that I will never forget. 

Froyo for the movie with my gals.

Best risotto ever with Scallops

Blurry but sooooo good, chicken with yogurt and honey.

Movie about Hope

I saw this really good movie this weekend called Life of Pi, if you like spiritual movies you will love this movie. I thought it was amazing and the message was so amazing. If you are all for hope and never giving up, you will feel this movie to your heart. 

Life of Pi <3
