Today I'm linking up with Steph and Chelsee so you go check them out.

It's no secret I've turned more into a home body since having kids. I still like to go out, it just doesn't happen very often. And when I do get out, I'm more of a lame  tame version of my former self, because let's face it.  A hangover when you have to get up before 6 AM with a baby/toddler/kindergartner and now a combination of that just isn't quite the same. Or worth it.

Moving on.

Last summer, as in summer of 2011 (has it Really been that long?) when Drew and I went to Sweden on our belated honeymoon I went a few days early to meet up with two of my high school friends. One was just finishing up a year teaching in Brussels, and the other flew over to meet her, then they met me in Stockholm for an Amaaazing three days.

We did a lot of non stop sight seeing obviously, but we also (even more obvious) found some amazing bars near our hostel. And the thing about the bars in Stockholm is that they stay open till like 5 AM. Which isn't a problem when you don't have to be up before 6 with a baby like I do now. By 'baby' was in Iowa with my mom, so yep we definitely stayed out till the bars closed. And I didn't even regret it one bit when I had to be at the train station by 7 for my trip up north.

Even got to meet up with my friend (and now new mom!!) Nadja

Heading home at 5

Ah these pictures are making me 'home sick' for Sweden. I think it's time to plan another trip! Or ya know, just move there, which Is what I'm shooting for.


  1. I'm glad you linked up! Sweden?! That's so fun, I'm jealous! I'm not a huge overseas traveler cause I'm kind of a wuss but I think I'd really like Sweden. At least your photos look like I'd like Sweden :)

  2. What a perfect day for me to stop by here :) I need all the deets on Stockholm from you. Jason and I are planning to take a few days in June and take a trip up there while we're with my family in Germany. We try to go somewhere every time we're over there and I have always wanted to go to Sweden.

    1. Oh my gosh YES! I will have to e-mail you some must sees/do's. It's my favorite city in the whole world (at least the ones Ive been to so far :)

  3. Haha, I remember the days of going out until 4 a.m.
    It doesn't seem quite as fun now I have a baby!
    I need my sleep :) !
    But I love a girls night out once in a while!

    Home sickness sucks, but before you know it you'll be on a plane to Sweden again! Hugs!

  4. Thanks for linking up! Wow Sweden...girl you are lucky! I hope to see you next week during our linkup. Have a great weekend!
