I onsdags körde vi upp till North Shore på eftermiddagen för att hälsa på en av våra roommates som campade där för några dagar. Det var en av de mest magiska dagarna vi har haft på ett tag. Vi kom inte upp förens vid  fyra och bestämde på en gång för att hoppa i vattnet. Vågorna var så perfekta att jag för första gången vågade mig prova på bodyboarding, och allt jag kan säga nu är att jag är ledsen att jag ej vågat tidigare! Men tror faktiskt också att det beror på att jag äntligen börjar bli bättre på att hålla andan, haha har bara tagit mig 21 år.. Det ända jag gör nu är att tjata på Alec att vi måste åka och hitta vågorna, vilket tidigare var det jag kämpade emot bäst jag kunde. Lanikai var liksom alltid högst på min strandönskelista = oftast inga vågor alls. Efter några timmar i havet joinade vi resten av camp teamet vid brasan och dukade upp en riktig världs buffé. Vart så glad då jag träffade min första vegan här, haha, och hon var en mäster kock också! Bjöd på både krämig potatis sallad, mac sallad, barbeque sticks m.m. På de flesta tillställningar vi varit på har jag hittills mest bara ätit ris med soya, men här var det andra puckar. Avslutade kvällen på liggandes på stranden men han jag håller allra kärast, räknade fallande stjärnor och skymtade till och med vintergatan med blotta ögat. Var verkligen så overkligt. Så trots trött som valpar sjöng vi för fulla halsar hela vägen hem den kvällen. Verkligen ren magisk dag ♡

This Wednesday we visited one of our roommates that were camping up on the North Shore. It was a magical day with perfect waves, bodyboarding, campfires at the beach, great people and amazing food. Finished of the day watching falling stars and the milky way at the beach resting on the chest of the person I love the most. Can’t explain this day more accurately then pure magical ♡

I’m back!

Processed with VSCO with f2 presetand ready to do this again! We have been living on Oahu for three months soon and I haven’t posted anything here, that’s about to change!

You’ll be hearing from me, men kanske på Svenska fram över, haha! Känner att jag behöver lite mer Svenska i mitt liv innan engelskan tar över allt. Får fundera..

Anyway! Vi hörs, kram.

Aloha! Since our living/house plans changed about a month ago and we started looking for a house instead, we finally landed the most perfect one last day. It’s up on Tantalus, very secluded and with the most epic view over down town/Waikiki. The owner told us it grows mangoes, avocados, papaya and bananas all around the house. It’s literally a dream come true. Can’t wait to get there and actually see it in person, Jay (roommate to be) has promised we’ll drop our jaws and by the pictures to judge I’m sure he’s right.

Breakfast tastes better when shared

IMG_4443My all time go to-smoothie combination is the classic banana, blueberry and peanut butter one. I also like to give it a extra boost with green spirulina as well. But since I’m finally back in the US (yey!) the nut butter options are craaazy. And so my new favorite is to mix the above with Wild Friends chocolate coconut peanut butter. I mean that name just says it all right? This smoothie is also great after workouts since its so filling, just a friendly monday tip for ya’ll. It really doesn’t have to be more complicated than that!

The Day is coming up

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 presetSince I last talked to you the days have been going by. Some faster then others but the Day is finally starting to come up. On the 4th of august I’m leaving for Portland to spend some weeks with Alec and his family and have a little summer break. I just wanna enjoy all of Portlands food, go on a lot of hikes, celebrate my 21st birthday and have the laziest days at Alecs parents house before we later in August leave for the tropical paradise above. Its been a long “to-do list” getting to this point but everything is finally starting to get checked off, with some smaller things I’ll get to once on the Island.

But for right now I have 9 more days at work and to make ’em as great as possible I’m gonna start this week out with a run to get that extra energy.

Talk to you soon

ONE LAST BREAKFAST IN BED

Okay so I already told you I’m a breakfast addict but with that also comes that I’m a breakfast expert. And not the last, I’m also an oat meal goddess. And for a rainy cold Portland morning this banana oatmeal is perfect.

Banana-chocolate-coconut oatmeal

2 per. →

✧ 1 cup of whole rolled oats

✧ 1 1/2 cup of water

✧ 1/2 ripe banana

✧ coconut sugar (optional)

Mix the oats and water and put to slowly boil. Stir constantly. Add the banana and mush it in the oats, this will give it a extra taste boost. And if you like it a little sweeter, add some coconut sugar right before you take it of the stove.

So the oatmeal is already tasting great, but we all know it’s all about the toppings. Peanut butter is a must for me, on almost everything. This one is coconut and chocolate flavored(!!!!!), mix it with apple, for crunch and a little sourness, and some banana coins for extra banana-flavor. And to top it of coconut and almond granola. So simple and so delicious!
