I know it’s been a while…

27 Apr

But I really don’t feel like giving an update on our apartment because it’s been a slow-moving process. Actually, last night gave me a bit of hope when I came home and saw Joachim putting up the rods in both closets so he could finally hang his clothes up! (They’ve been living on the floor since the day we moved in). Other than that, things are slowly coming together on the home front. Once we get a more “moved in” look I will upload pictures, I promise!

Other than that, I decided to fill out this fun little questionnaire that I found on one of the many blogs that I read. I thought since I didn’t feel like writing about our apartment, I would fill this out instead 🙂

Age: 22 and (almost) 11 months

Bed size: queen

Chore you hate: vacuuming

Dogs: love them but don’t want one for a while. After having my fair share of dog sitting, I can officially say that waking up at 5 a.m. to watch a dog pee and poop may be the most miserable thing in the world.

Essential start to your day: eating breakfast! I love breakfast. Favorite meal of the day. Sometimes I even have breakfast TWICE in a day! (Breakfast for dinner, duh!)

Favorite color: to wear? White. Decorate? White, teal, light green, yellow

Gold or silver: I like silver if it is for shorter necklaces and rings. Gold for longer chains and fun bracelets.

Height: 5’8″, like Cindy Crawford!

Instruments you play (or have played): Violin, a little piano, the RECORDER!

Job title: English Copywriter (extraordinaire)

Kids: Zero for now.

Live: Helsingborg, Sweden

Mom’s name: Karen but I call her Mommy/Momma

Nickname: depends on whom you ask. To my mom/dad: squirrel, munchkin, munch rat (who knows where that one came from); to my friends: Hads, Haddles, H; to my boyfriend: munchkin, babe, älskling (Swedish for “my love”).

Overnight hospital stay: never.

Pet peeve: When you smile at someone and they don’t smile back. When someone is on the phone and comes to a COMPLETE halt 2 feet in front of you w/o noticing that you are behind them. People walking/riding on the wrong side of the sidewalks. Walk to the right, pass to the left—just like a road people!!

Quote from a movie: if you know anything about me, you know that watching or remembering ANY movie is a bit difficult for me.

Right or left handed: right

Siblings: one! My sister- Lindsay

Time you wake up: when I have to go to work- 6.15-6.30, on the weekends 9-9.30

Underwear: yes, i wear it…sometimes! haha

Vegetables you dislike: I really can’t think of any! If you would’ve asked me this question 10 years ago, that would be a different story!

What makes you run late: nothing! i’m always on time. i hate lateness

X-rays you’ve had done:  quite a few b/c of that legendary fall I took in high school. Next question please!

Yummy food you make: chocolate chip cookies have got to be my claim-to-fame. I’ve also been getting quite good at making Mexican food since I’ve moved to Sweden and found that Mexican is quite the rarity here!

Zoo animal: MONKEYS! Any size, shape or color- I’m not picky!

Also, the weather here has been absolutely amazing lately. I think the sun has been out for 8 or 9 consecutive days (which is almost unheard of here) and the weather has been hovering around the mid-to-upper sixties.

Here are a few pictures that I’ve taken on my iPhone the last few weeks. Hope you all are enjoying life and had a great Easter!

The nice park that is located behind my work! Picture taken today on my lunch break 🙂

Joachim enjoying the sun over Easter Weekend

The nice Easter egg I got from my work 🙂 Filled with yummy chocolates!

    That park is beautiful — and Joachim is very handsome — although that pic was taken when he was only 21 — LOL! Are there any chocolates left? Isn’t Sweden known for its chocolates? I think I remember reading that somewhere. Elly is sitting here as I post my comments — she sends her love and licks. Luv ya!

    […] I make last night, you ask? Of course, my infamous chocolate chip cookies that I wrote about in my blog post yesterday. I managed to snap some pictures on my iPhone of the sweet, little things which will have […]
