When we see the sun, we jump!

The weather is Sweden is not what you would call ideal.  I would say most Swedes don’t care or like it.  Its grey most of the times.  It really hasn’t been a bother, which is awesome.

But let me tell ya,

when the sun comes out we run to the sun.  No really we get so excited, we go for walks, stand in front of the windows etc.  Makes you want to do a happy sun dance. 🙂 Today I actually had to pull out my sunglasses to drive.  Imagen that!  I realize how much I took the sun for granted while living in Hawaii.

The snow has left us, which I am not a fan of.  It makes it so much darker. By the way the sun rise at 8ish and sets at 4ish.  Crazy!  The snow helps stay brighter plus its just beautiful. The funny thing is it will most likely come back.  The weather here in Sweden is very confused.  What kind of weather do you live in?Image

Happy Times!

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July.  It is crazy to think this might be my last fourth of July in a while.  I think the fourth is one of my favorite holidays.  It is always so much fun.  Kids running around, parents and friends chilling, brqs blazing and fire works.  What more could you ask for.? Happy Birthday America.

Speaking of America my husband at the end of this month becomes an American Citizen.  Crazy!  Yes, we (haha he) took the test on July 9th and he has his oath ceremony on the 31st.  I swear, I felt so sick waiting for his interview.  You just feel so helpless. He now knows more about America then most Americans.  It was actually quite fun helping him study for the test ( They are asked 10 random questions about the US history they have to get 6 correct in order to pass and whole bunch of other stuff).  I am not going to lie I kind of felt like I was in movie.  Like the “Proposal” or “Green Card” its no joke.  I am so glad this is over!!!!  BTW he got all the answer correct.

That means we bought our tickets to Sweden.  Yes we leave on the 1st of August.  I can’t believe this move is really happening.  Sweden will now be my new home.  I will have to learn to speak Swedish, my baby boy is going to grow up speaking Swedish.  I am so excited but also a little sad.  I love my Hawaii.  She beautiful, she is warm, she is friendly, is Aloha.  At least my parents are still there so I know I will be back.  I mean who can resist her warm water?  Not us!

Packing completely sucks!  No really! It is the worst. You realize how much junk you have saved, and bought and then you have to try to fit everything into a bag……ehhh yes. I want the little fairy packers to come. I feel like all I am doing is moving one mess to the other side of the room.

Well I must get back to packing we are shipping two bags out tomorrow.

This is getting real my friends.

One of these is unlike the other

Hahah how cute are Hugo and Boo?  Its crazy to think there is a book out about Boo and stuff animal.  We are crazy people.  I am sure people in third world countries can’t even believe a dog has become famous because of a blog. Crazy…right?

I don’t usually shop with my dog.  I had to take him to his yearly vet visit and well if you drive all the way into town might as well stop by the mall. 🙂

Diamonds

Yes, diamonds are a girl’s best friend.  I am not talking about that kind of diamond, although I do love those.  I am talking about Diamond Head!  Isn’t she a beauty.  Diamond Head to me depicts Hawaii.  It is that landmark that lets you know your home after travels. The landmark that makes you realize you live in paradise.  You see her in pictures all the time.  What can I say she is ICONIC! Image

His mighty wonders

God I am so in wonder of your creation! You make the most beautiful things. The other day while at the beach I was so in awe of the clouds! They we’re stunning. Thank you for the wonderful world you created for us. I know I need to thank you more for the things in my life! This clouds made me stop and ponder about life! I pray I may stop more often and enjoy you more!
