Date night at Delikatessen

delikatessen

Tuesday night I had a date at this lovely French inspired restaurant close to Mariatorget in Stockholm. It’s called Delikatessen Bistro & Bar!

eatsweden

I actually got a cool gift -it’s a book called Eat Sweden and in it it’s vouchers for 12 restuarants in Stockholm. You get one main course for free at each restaurant. The thing I like about it that you then tend to try different places around town. Otherwise I’m more likely to go to the same spot every time I go out..

moules

I had Moules Frites! Maybe to celebrate that I’m going with the kids to see my family in Belgium tomorrow!

love
My hubby Erik. He loves to be in my photo’s – NOT! But I asked him to look very much in love- this was the look! Good.

bar

The bar – actually this restaurant is in an old fire station. Should have taken more general photo’s but I guess you just have to go there and see for yourselves!

mirror

William morris and me in the ladies room! A wallpaper you simply never get bored of.

lamp

I also like when you hang lace on the toilet door like this. Such a lovely detail.

It was a great night. Good food and we ended it by going to the movies. We watched Gone Girl. I didn’t like the book but I enjoyed the movie! Or the book is ok but I wasn’t awed like so many others. Oh anyway. Have you seen it?

TBT Flying with us to Nebraska

Skarby Lincoln from Jens Gronberg on Vimeo.

Next week I´m taking the tribe out west. To Lincoln Nebraska, USA.

I have a been booked to do some interior photo shoots there and a few Christmas features (for Swedish magazines). As this opportunity came to me we instantly decided to go early- work and then stay for Christmas. Jens can work from anywhere really and the kids can visit with their American cousins while Jens and I are busy.

VIDEO ABOVE: Jens made the video , 5 years ago, when we went to Nebraska. Back then I was a blonde and our family was only the 3 of us.

PS.You who have read this blog for a while know that I have to siblings who live in Nebraska.
They went as exchange students when they were only 17 and ended up staying. Since then I´ve tried to visit as often as possible. Last time was Christmas of 2012. You can see all those posts here! Like when we took our picture with santa  and Viola went to her cousin´s school to talk about Lucia

One image evey hour Thursday in Isabelles life

breakfast

 

08.00 School starts at 08.15 for Della so mostly me & Beppe take it a bit slower after the other two has left the building. I’m such a slow starter. But once I get my speed up – nothing can stop me! We’re eating porridge.

 

robot_vacum

09.00 We left for preschool really late this day and before leaving I like to put our “dog” on cleaning mode.

plant

10.00 At my desk at home for a couple of hours. My hands are really pink so very far from green. Remember this baby? I killed it in less than a month. I really want more plants at home but don’t know how to do it.

booth

11.00 went for a long walk. First stop here in Old Town (Gamla Stan) where I have my chiropractor. I’ve had cramps in my neck from not exercising enough. Need more yoga. And more sleep. These telephone booths will probably be a museum soon.

mirror

 

12.00 I walked further to Kungsholmstorg. A quick stop in this kind of Moroccan boutique called Tabbouli House. I’m on a lookout for a new sofa table. Like this one with mirrors.

passport

13.00 Me & Beppe’s new passport where ready so I went to pick them up. I look like Cruella De Vil. I think I can pull of photo’s rather well but never on my driving license or passports. Beppe is such a cutie though.

bridge

14.00 Walking back the to south side of town. I always take photos of viaduct and under bridges. But you can almost never see the beauty or the massive feel of it when you look at the images. It’s the same with sunsets I guess.

monstergotgatan

15.00 I went to do something on Götgatsbacken. This is an office space on the first floor. Suck a great idea painting it like this. I should do it on the kids windows!

subway2

16.00 Took the subway down town and passed Old Town again. Tired commuters longing for home.

anna

17.00 But not me! I had a date with this gal – Anna. I’ve known her since first grade – 32 years! We went to Bouqerian. I go there alot. Love the food and the ambiance.

lol

 

At 18.00 me and Anna are still LOL-ing around. I had langostios, vongole & tuna! mm getting hungry just thinking about it.

subway

19.00 Anna is preggers so we made it an early night. Me on the subway back home.

elevator

birgitta

20.00 My hubby was in Budapest so my mother in law stayed with the kids. She’s awesome!

Thank you for today!

That zebra jacket!

jacka_beppe

The world keeps spinning round round round when you are 4 years old. But the jacket is a great one! It comes from Pop Up Shop. Very warm and kids friendly.  I got so many questions about it that I thought it was best to give it a post of it’s own!

You can find the jacket right here in this shop.
