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!!

Hi Helene! I enjoyed your 7 things post! I would never have guessed you to be a biker! Awesome! Ohh and you made me hungry too with the crock pot talk. I think I might see if I have enough stuff on hand to make up a batch of tomato veggie soup and cornbread muffins for dinner tonight. I could let it stew all afternoon in the crockpot! Thanks for the inspiration!

Hej!
Så roligt att höra ifrån dej! Du mailade ju mej om vax-duk tidigare i våras. Hur gick det? Hittade du någon?
Hoppas ni hade det härligt när ni var på Sverige-besöket.
Det var ju kul att du har fixat till en blogg också, så nu kan jag få höra lite om liver Over there!
Jag lägger upp dej i min länklista, så jag inte tappar bort dej.

Hi Helene,
You sound absolutely delightful! There was a time when my DH and I, also, rode motorcyles...in our "free spirited youth" days. I am so glad that you live here now and it sounds like you have adjusted very, very well. Thanks for sharing!!
