Halloween printables

Family time took over last week. We had some wonderful days together. We had dinners with friends, went to the movies, played with friends, got our garden ready for the coming season and so much more. It was just what I needed.

Halloween is just around the corner, and I still need a few things for the kids’ costumes. It turns out that we cannot go all in this year after all, because my girl is away on soccer camp all night and my boy will be at the camp during the day as well. But we’ll make some spooky food and invite a few friends over for dinner anyway.

I found a few cool printables that’ll help you get into the Halloween spirit. How about a game of Halloween Bingo – that would be fun. Even though my kids won’t be home for trick or treat – I’ve got a few things ready for the kids in the neighborhood.

Getting ready for Halloween

During the last couple of years, more and more Danes have picked up the Halloween tradition. Personally, I love it. I would love to throw a Halloween party and dress up. I’ve been collecting pictures and other scary Halloween stuff on Pinterest for years, and it’s time to go all in.

This year I have to get two kids ready for the Halloween party at the school. The little one is going as a skeleton and my girl is going as a black cat. I’ll show you pictures on Instagram when they are ready for the party.

During the next couple of weeks, I want to share Halloween related pieces with you here on the blog.

Boy on the moon

My little one is crazy about all stuff with the moon on it. It all started when I bought this sweatshirt from molo. I’ve added a few more items to his wardrobe, and he gets excited every time. He’s also been looking at the stars through our astronomical telescope. I love this phase, where he gets caught up in one thing and just wants to know all about it.

I’ve been looking for a few things for his room as well. I’ve found this cool map of the moon poster via mr printables. And I’ve also found a fun activity for the upcoming fall break. How about a Doodle on the moon? This idea is pretty cool and I know my kids would love it. Or how about this moon poster from Fybur’s Etsy shop? Lastly, a small DIY project – the famous Mr. Moon Ikea hack lamp by mommo design. This lamp has been all over the internet, but I still think it’s super cute.

Cool bedroom makeover – for mother & daughter

I’m almost there… tomorrow is exam day… and after that I’ll have time to blog again. Gosh, I really miss it. And because of the course, I’ll be a much wiser blogger from now on. Stay tuned for some improvements.

I just need a break away from all the course material and I wanted to share one of my favourite room makeovers. One room with so many lovely details. There is room for mom as well as her daughter and that’s not all. Check out these amazing solutions, and I bet you’ll be dreaming about a bed like this tonight. Check out BoligLiv for before pictures as well.

OMG it’s fantastic Frank….

I’m back in Aarhus again and finishing up the last few weeks of the course.

I’ve been exploring the city after class ends every day, which isn’t half bad. Truth be told, I still miss the little ones and my man like crazy. I miss kissing them goodnight and picking them up from school. I miss the everyday life with them.

But in the meantime, I’ll enjoy fresh juice from Juice Stop. It has turned out to be quite addictive. I’m thinking about trying out their Juice cure as well. But enough about food.

The real reason why I stopped by was to show you an amazing apartment, which I’ve found on Fantastic Frank’s blog.

Cool toys from Bleebla

Ever since I had children, I’ve been interested in simple toys. I never wanted a room full of plactic toys in piles as big as the child or maybe even bigger. I strived for a more simple room, with less toys. Of course it wasn’t always easy, and to be honest, both kids have had their fair share of plastic toys. But I know that some of my ‘less is more’ philosophy has rubbed off.

I’m madly in love with the high quality toys I’ve found by Bleebla. I kinda wish I had a little one again, so I would have an excuse to buy all of it. Hop on over and see the rest of their beautiful collection.
