SCANDINAVIAN LIVING ROOM Good morning and happy Monday to you!  My apologies for my apparent disappearance for those of you trying to click over to my Top 10 Surprising Things About Moving To America.  Our sites were inflicted with a nasty virus and required rest, chicken noodle soup, and several hours under the care of our web provider.

Since we are getting a late start to our week, I thought it might be fun to share some of my personal favorite finds from the weekend that vary from movies to beauty products to home tours and awesome recipes.

Here are some noteworthy finds to get your week going:

1. These RAW NUTELLA BARS are DIVINE.  Perfect for breakfast and for upcoming lunch boxes!

2. Apparently I have an obsession with THE TUB.  I'd go to jail for THIS ONE.

3. I love the MODERN TWIST on this traditional entry.  THIS ONE is amazing if you like a pop of color!

BLACK AND WHITE ENTRY

4.  I am smitten with THIS HOME TOUR.  The little elephant in the window, the rocking horse, and the teepee are my favorite!

4. I ordered THIS VASE for all my summer flowers.  It's only $24.99 from H&M!

5. Michael Bond's art has utterly stolen my heart.  I can hardly tear myself away from his work!

6.  We took the kids to see THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS and loved it.  Gidget is my fave.

7. J Crew Factory is offering an additional 40% off EVERYTHING.  We are STOCKING UP!  I want this necklace, this summer sweater, this graphic top, & these boyfriend jeans!

SUMMER WARDOBE

8. Our daughter has been asking to go hiking.  We want to take her to the BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS.  ASAP.

9. This Aussie knows style.  Summer Heels are pretty close to perfection, but I love these flats, too!

10. I've avoided drug store face products for years, but Garnier's MICELLAR CLEANSING WATER had stellar ratings so I decided to try it.  Pair it with the COOLING MOISTURIZER and your skin will thank you.  (even if it's super sensitive like mine!)

The BEST Skin care you will ever try!!
