I have been the worst blogger ever. I wonder how many times I've said that on my blog. Without my own computer though, and always using my iPhone, I forget so easily to update! I'm sorry all!

Things are just things here. Working, making food, getting paid, spending money. :) The job is going well still, can be difficult at times, But I'm a grown up, so I'm working through them.

Our apartment is still wonderful and slowly being filled up with things I love! It's so exciting how it's all coming together! We take lots of trips to IKEA!

Right now I have 2 visitors from Kansas. It's fantastic! They have only been here about 20 hours, but I never want them to leave! Or at least when they leave some more visitors come! It's so fun to be informative about a place that is so new and exciting! Makes me feel kind of....well, cool! ;)

Last night we ate 'halv special' with them and my American friend Ellen and her fiance Anders. It was a blast! Halv special is hot dogs with mashed potatoes on top with some fried onions and grill spice. YUM! It's not really even a Swedish thing, it a Göteborg thing! Tonight we are all gonna eat at a Swedish restaurant called Karlsson's Garage. I've heard great things about it!

Speaking of Ellen. I met her at my work place about a week and a half ago and now we have become inseparable! She is from Georgia and met a Swede while she was living in Hungary about 3 years ago. She moved to Sweden, they are engaged, and in 4 weeks, unfortunately, they are both moving to the US. It's just so cool to meet other Americans who are doing cool things with their life and have a lot in common with. I think Ellen is one of the most interesting people I have met, and it's so cool because she thinks that about me! :) I really do not want her to go!

Well I better start attempting to make some Swedish pancakes for my visitors! Yikes!

The Swedish word of the day is 'gäst' which means 'guest' and is pronounced 'ge-ehst'. 'gäster' is 'guests'.


  1. You can't imagine what a thrill it is to see a new blog from you. Having Molly and John there is "almost" like being there too. :). Enjoy! Love Mom

  2. Yeah! new post! It is exciting when friends and family visit your new place in the world! It makes you feel like even though your world is different than it was in so many ways, yet it is still your world and YOUR people are in it! Does that make sense?!!
    Enjoy the time you have together with friends old and new!

  3. I hope they had a great time despite the suitcase situation! What did you make for them? Did they get to meet all your Swedish friends? Two worlds colliding?
