A couple of weeks ago did I get tagged by
Jennifer of Cottage Flair,
so here we go, seven things about myself

1. I’m born in Sweden and moved to California with my Swedish husband in 1993, it was scary and exiting at the same thing. So many new things to learn, such as how do you pay your bills, a whole new way to measure and weigh things (in Europe everything is based on the metric system), I quickly learned you don’t bag your groceries, well I didn’t know …….and the list goes on.

2. I bought my first Crockpot ever last year and now I’m a Crockpot addict, that is one of the best things ever invented, I use it several times every week and I’m not sure how we could survive without it ;0)

3. I have only owned one pair of high heels in my whole life and will probably never own another pair again, give me a pair of sandals and I’m a happy camper.

4. I was a vegetarian for almost 10 years and what gave me in was I craved smoked sausage of all things and some other weird stuff that I can’t mention here because it would grouse you out………

5. I bought my first motorcycle in 1978, my Harley in 1980 and I still own the same Harley today. Don’t ride it that much anymore but I do fire it up once and awhile for a short ride.

6. My only run-in to a famous person is that I sat next to Lorenzo Lamas on a shuttle one time.

7. We don’t have any kids but we do have two spoiled rotten Kitties that rules the house!!

I just run out of steam for the last Pink Friday, I had so many things I wanted to do and nothing got done!! So, to just perk me up a little this weekend I worked on some tablecloths that I have found lately. After the tablecloths got a good soak and a wash they ended up on our front lawn so the sun could do its magic to bleach out some of the stubborn stains.

View up the street from our driveway

I also went through some of the picture from when I went to Sweden in May and thought you might enjoy seeing some more pictures from where I grew up as I kid, I hope you will enjoy.

Down at the lake, spent countless of hours down here as a kid

The wild blueberries were blooming

The last morning, the day I went home the elves were dancing on the lake

Otherwise not much new over here, just been a busy weekend getting husband ready for his new job which he started today, yeah!! The best part is, it’s only 5 minutes from the house instead of 1 ½ hr commute one way…….

I just added quiet a few new item to the Mini Tea Set category in case someone like to take a peak.

Wish you all a fabulous pink week!
