Happy Monday you all. It is been a hectic and fun weekend over here. Still, quite a lot to do in the house, even tho things finally start to fall into place. More of the small stuff left, like candles and decorations, as well as carpets, beddings, towels, etc.
Friday I went to a concert with one of the wives on the Wild team, Helena and a friend of hers from Minnesota. I honestly had never heard about the artist, but I love concerts and when Helena started sending me youtube clips I got convinced to go.
Dermot Kennedy is an Irish artist and writes all his music by himself. He was truly amazing live and such a humble person on stage. Before each song, he took a moment to explain the text and the meaning behind every song. The fans seemed to be super connected to him, and wouldn't stop applauding after the last song. They kept screaming, ¨One more song¨ ! He looked super flattered and seemed so thankful for every single person showing up.
Saturday was the first home game for the Wild, and most of the wives and girlfriends of the players went to watch the game together. Before I met Mats I bearly knew anything about hockey. My first hockey game, I asked him ¨Is it gonna be inside or outside¨? Years later, he still makes fun of that comment.
Even tho NHL is huge here in the states, it is a smaller sport in Norway and especially where I'm from. My whole family, including myself, have been active cross country skiers and most Norwegians are all about skiing. In the beginning, I didn't like watching hockey that much, and I often stayed home in NYC to watch it from the coach. I didn't understand anything about the game and the rules. I felt it was easier to understand everything from the TV. After some years I am getting more and more into it, and I do enjoy the games so much more now. Its also a social way to get together with the other girls, as I don't know many people here in the city. Unfourthantly our team lost, but the season just began so things can quickly change.
Hope you all have an ok start of your new week.
Best, Eline S.
