My debut on American TV!

February 2, 2017


Hey! Long time no see, but here I am. Gosh, once I really sit down and blog, I realize how much I actually miss it. Anyhow, as the title of this post says, today is the day. Liz and I are going to be on Home & Garden Television (HGTV) on the show called, House Hunters International. Yep, that’s right! The channel found Liz’s blog back in winter of 2015, but we weren’t ready to move to our own place then. However, HGTV told us that they still really wanted to film an episode with us, and that they would wait until we were actually gonna buy a home. Life happened and the time came for us to purchase a place, we contacted HGTV, and we filmed a day in Asheville, NC in the States this past summer, and then filmed four days here in Uppsala, Sweden. Intense days but so much fun!! The time has now come and it’s gonna air on TV TONIGHT in the States!!

So if you have HGTV, our episode, “Swinging Back to Sweden”, will be on at 10:30PM Eastern time.

You can read more about the episode here which will take you to the website of House Hunters International, and basically what you see down below.


Liz and I have, of course, a lot of footage from summer and fall, when we filmed, which we will post on our YouTube channel (which I’ve forgotten to mention on the blog yet, but in our latest podcast!). However, if you would like a little taste of it, you can watch the Casting Video we filmed. Even though the show hunted us, we still had to go through all the paperwork and process of being casted. Check out the casting video here below. Also, for future references, we will post, as I said earlier, more video footage later on, so hit the subscribe button on YouTube, and tag along on this TV adventure of ours!

A couple of American papers have also written about us and the upcoming show as well, which you can find here. Mountain Xpress, here, and Citizen-Times, here. We’ve also been interviewed by the local paper in Uppsala, but when I’m typing this, it hasn’t been published yet (if it will?!).

So, I believe that’s it for now. I’ll post, once the episode has been aired,  a bunch of behind-the-scenes pictures, a little more info, and videos. It will probably end up being several parts because we have so much fun material to share with you! What a crazy and amazing adventure this has been and still is!

it’s early on tuesday evening and i thought it was about time to give you all an update. gonna just chill here at home tonight which feels pretty good. got a few plans about working on some lists though. i need to fix a good playlist on spotify so i’ll have it on my phone, write down a packing list (i’m a fan of lists) and also do a more detailed shopping list. we’re (my love and I) heading to the states next week. it’s about time. almost a year ago since last time we saw the family there. way too long ago. anyway. that’s my plans for tonight. what are you all up to?

last friday at the amusement park, liseberg, in gothenburg, sweden.

wednesday morning

April 27, 2011

i’m doing one of the things i like right now. drinking coffee in front of the morning tv show “vakna med the voice”. having a lazy morning before my errands start. it’s pretty gray outside today and i believe it’s gonna rain soon. but hey, we’ve had sun for like two weeks straight now.

was looking through some pics on my computer and found this funny one i wanna share with you all. you know that i need two bodyguards while i’m in the states? oh, well it truly looks like it here on this pic. we were at a restaurant/pub on a pier and i was ordering some drinks. liz took a pic and i ended up standing between these two guys or they ended up surrounding me. have no idea who they are.

hope you will have a good wednesday!
