Healthy scones 🙂

Good morning guys 🙂 Yesterday there was a holiday here in the states (not that it really affects me because I’m always off but anyhow..) so I decided I’d bake scones for breakfast, light some candles and just stay cozy. But as you can see, no candles. It was the first time i was gonna use the oven since I’ve been here, and it started to smell gas. The stove is gas and I’ve used it and its fine. I have no idea if the oven is gas too but it must be. The longer it was on the more it smelled, in the whole apartment! I had to open all the windows and then call downstairs to see if this was normal or if anyone could come up. I got so scared it was a gas leak or something was seriously wrong. Scones are pretty quick thankfully so they got done and then i just turned it off. The smell went away eventually, but i was too scared to light any kind of candles. Must have seen too many movies or tv shows with gas and BOOM!! haha.

A guy is coming today to take a look at it and hopefully fix it. I love scones, and baking in general, so I don’t think i could do without an oven. Other plans for today then? Nothing major. I have to call or take little Shelby to the vet again for his itching and then run some errands. Later today a post about our trip to Toronto is coming up on here, don’t miss it 🙂

Avocado toasting

Cheers(and toast ;)) to the weekend!

Sorry for a really silent week here on the blog, I’ve had my first visitor! Mona came up to visit me from Miami, we thought it’s better now when it’s still warm and nice here too. So naturally I wanted to spend as much as possible the four days she was here because now, we do t know when we’ll see each other again..:(

We explored my area here a bit and found this amazing cafe with healthy, organic foods. Loved it, I’ll be going there a lot because as you can see, avocado toast! There’s also a chocolate store right next to it so you know, while I’m there I might as well..:) We went on some longer adventures too, all the way to Canada?! Haha it’s just like 30 minutes away. I’ll make some more post about over the weekend. Have a happy Friday guys 🙂

The first of many

Now he’s tired! After a whole night of not much sleep for either one of us(a lot of new and strange noices to get used to), this one passes out on the couch 🙂

Good morning Buffalo 🙂 We got here yesterday afternoon, everything went great and Shelby was such a good boy! On shorter flights like this he usually is. It’s the long flights to Europe that gets him and it’s heartbreaking.

But it went fine and everything looked like we left it in the apartment. We went for a walk right away and it’s so nice out!! It’s warm but not humid, it was the same this morning. It’s like a crisp air but still warm 🙂 For now at least, don’t think that’s gonna last very long haha.

Also went a quckie to the grocery store last night so I would have some breakfast, it is after all the best and most important meal of the day. It’s so hard to find the way around in new grocery stores at first. It took me so much longer then I wanted to because I couldn’t find what I was looking for. I didn’t wanna leave Shelby alone for longer then necessary in a new place, so I’ll have to go back today and add some things 🙂 But first on the list of things to do today is to get the tv and Internet set up. Well I’m not doing that, I’m waiting for the guy to come right now. He’s suppose to be here in between 9-10am, he’s got 14 minutes..

Crossed one more off the list yesterday! This lunch spot was in one of the most shady little places I’ve ever been. Such an odd spot to put a good cafe like this haha. Anyways my friend and I have wanted to go for a while due to Instagram pictures and I’m glad we did. Good salads, good atmosphere and the avocado toast did look amazing, i just couldn’t justify getting two in one week. That bread..

This morning I went to breakfast with the girl who designed our wedding rings(a lot of eating i know but i don’t wanna cook at home and get the place dirty before i go). She lives down here and during the process we became good friends. I’ll miss her, I’ll miss everything about florida and everyone. Mona, that went to lunch with me yesterday, is flying up to Buffalo on Sunday so her I’ll see her soon again 🙂

The packing madness is not going anywhere and definitely not when I’m sitting her being lazy so, see you in Buffalo tomorrow!

 

Breakfast for one

Good morning 🙂 How glamorous does this look haha? I was out doing some errands this morning and then stop for breakfast at this place. It might not look much but I love oatmeal! They have a lot of other good options too, I just like it simple and their juices are so good. Mine just has a mud like color because it’s both greens and carrots in it. Makes a good but ugly juice!

Another reason why I went here today is that I got a little sad walking around our neighborhood yesterday. I was thinking; but there’s so many places we haven’t been to yet and so many of my favs I wanna go to again. So breakfast for one it is.

One thing I won’t miss about it here though is all the thunderstorms we have all the time. I woke up in the middle of the night from really loud and long BANGS and lightening that was out of this world. When it struck, it was like daylight outside! I guess that might change to snowstorm where we are headed but you know, change is good haha 🙂

One last round..

Ah I’m really starting to feel it, now that we are moving. We have less and less days together here at home and so much to do. Tomorrow we are going to Pensylvania for a wedding and my hubby leaves straight from there to russia. So yesterday we went to our beach club for one last breakfast together before we freeze our account. Obviously I stuffed my face with all the fruits and rolled our of there haha. They have the best fruit and the mango is always soon good!

After saying goodbye to the beach club, we went to Sawgrass mall. We always end up going when we have family in town because they always like to go shopping in the outlets. It’s not my favorite thing to do, it’s far away and always a hit or miss. Sometimes good, most times horrible. But yesterday it was a hit ! I was just tagging along, but was the one going home with the most bags. Most happy about my “winter” shoes haha. We’re going out tonight so I can wear them, so not quit winter shoes since i can wear them here, but the deal was too good to resist!

Cozy Friday

If you haven’t had Swedish candy, you haven’t had candy at all.

It’s ridiculous how happy good food can make me. Usually it’s when I find really good healthy foods, but I have the a week spot for candy. There’s no denying how happy it makes me!

Let’s dig in 🙂

Hi everyone, I hope you’ve had a good day, it’s Friday after all. Yay! I have my mother in law here so we are out doing stuff and packing and all that, so don’t have a lot of time by the computer or to take pictures:) It’ll get better updated here when we are all settled in Buffalo.

I started this wonderful day with double workouts, which is probably a good thing considering the pictures above haha! The other day when we went to ikea I just couldn’t resist, if you’re a swede you know. For those of you who are not from Sweden, let’s just say it’s worth a trip just for the candy. No joke! So tonight we are just staying in, eating candy and taking it easy. Have a great night whatever shenanigans you are up to 🙂
