A Sunday of shopping

I left for downtown from Dalarö today to meet up with friends from Paris, who have been visiting in Stockholm over Midsummer and whom I was supposed to meet yesterday, before we got soaked by the little thunderstorm. We unfortunately never caught each other today for a bunch of reasons, so I got an unexpected shopping day all by myself in Stockholm with lunch at Wayne's Coffee.

I came back to the island with non-snug fitting Swedish pajamas for the kids, a couple of fun things from Designtorget, an electrical Brio train for the son and some great fitting Swedish clothes for me.

Sometimes these totally unexpected shopping tours are the most succesful....

Härligt med lite spontanshopping. Det är kanske då man gör dom bästa fynden?
Pyjamasar. JA!!!
Designtorget.JA!!!
Vad KUL det ska bli att komma hem och shoppa (och bli fattig).

Ert åskoväder ute i skärgården lät dramatiskt, och jag kan tänka mig att det var lite otäckt. Tom så otäckt att dottern vill tillbaka till CA, haha!!

Vad kul det ska bli på fredag!!

Och du prickade in sommarens rea också!

Jag gillar Designtorget starkt! Hittar alltid små presenter där, även om det bara är en liten knapp med rolig text på!

Annika - ja, kanske - man har i alla fall inga som helst förväntningar på vad man letar efter. Jo, jag var väl inte så jättenöjd att sitta i en båt under åskstormen heller... skönt att allt gick bra.

Anna - haha - ja, det är väldans vad det är reor just nu. Får nog hålla mig från affärer resten av tiden. Nu börjar jag bli riktigt orolig för väsk-vikten... Designtorget är en helt fantastisk affär! Älskar att bara gå runt och titta på alla saker... och önska att jag kunde ha större väskor...

You bought a Brio train? I love Brio and only recently realised that Brio is Swedish. Should have guessed huh? Lol!
Will definitely be buying some Brio toys for the new baby.(Good thing we kept all the wooden train stuff!)
