Tuesday Thoughts

What's your drink/cocktail of choice? 
This always seems to depend on my mood. While hanging out at home with my husband, I tend to stick to beer- unless he'll join me for a bottle of wine! With the girls, its always wine. But at the end of a dinner on the town, a celebration, or any time I need a pick-me-up, champagne always gives me that happy bubbly feeling I crave.

Do you have a signature scent?
I've always been a Burberry Brit girl.

What is your go-to restaurant?
Oh boy…this is a toughie. In Karlskrona, Nick and I head to Michelangelo's a lot- its a quiet, cozy restaurant perfect for our date nights. Back home there is a great differential between the two, but we love Manny's and Stadium Pizza (talk about polar opposites!)

What is the top item on your wishlist right now?
Right now, the biggest thing on my wish list isn't as simple as heading off to a store and picking it up. I am looking forward to being home for the summer, and enjoying plenty of time (three full months!) with family and friends.

What'd you do this past weekend?
Nick returned home from a road trip on Friday, so we just took the night easy. Saturday, I had a hockey game (we won!) and then travelled up to Jönköping to meet some of Nick's friends. Read about that post here.

Where are you, and where would you like to travel to next?
Right now, I am hanging out at home in Karlskrona, Sweden. As far as travel to next- the big vacation I am looking forward to comes in just under three months when I will be off to Thailand for my honeymoon! In the meanwhile, I am sure I will get an itch for a mini-vacation the next time Nick has a few days off. Perhaps a new little town in Sweden!

What are you currently reading?
I've taken a slight break over the last few weeks in reading since beginning my Master's. Right now, the only book I am exploring is "Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Regional Development" --for my course. I wouldn't recommend it as light reading. Previous to this, I did read "The Wolf of Wall Street" and "This is Russia." The Wolf of Wall Street was an alright book, but I found it hard to truly enjoy because I felt I was just reading about his drug habits. This is Russia was a very interesting book to me because it helped me to learn more about my husband's time playing in the KHL. 

What are you currently watching?
Lately, I have gotten into Scandal with Kerry Washington. In the past two weeks, Nick and I have pretty much watched the entire first two seasons- time for a new show!

Favorite quote of the moment?
Right now, I'd have to quote part of a song lyric by Passenger: "Only hate the road when your missin' home"

Tell us a secret or funny fact about yourself…
My family (my Dad, specifically) grows giant pumpkins. Highest record so far, 1217.5 pounds- and this is always a great conversation starter!
