Breakfast or "Morgenmad"

I have never been a morning person. Ever. When I was a little kid, I was always the student late for class, or the one with all the absences because I just hated getting up in the morning (I blame my mother). This terrible habit has continued throughout my adult education, and because I was always rushing in the mornings, I never really had the time for breakfast...

...until now.

Breakfast has become my favorite meal of the day. On Mondays and Thursdays I have had to get up at 6am in order to get to my 8:30am classes. However painful the early mornings may be, I always look forward to a big breakfast and the chilly morning bike ride to the train station.

I feel like a completely different person. Texas-Emily would be so ashamed...but new Danish-Emily has realized a whole new side of herself.

Also, having extra time in the mornings let's me experiment with my cooking skills and create delicious dishes like this:

My take on a frittata, but I scrambled it because omelets are hard...

Spinach, mushrooms, potatoes, and cauliflower...mmm


Another fun thing to do in the mornings that I never used to do is workout! Since the weather has increasingly declined in temperature and overall prettiness (no more warmth and Autumn is officially over), my plan on running 4 times a week failed miserably. Who wants to go run outside in the dark with cold, misty rain?? Unless I'm training for a marathon...no thank you. Instead of paying $200 for a 2 month gym membership, I had to improvise. Luckily, I found my Insanity workout videos online and for the past three weeks I've been (literally) busting my butt. And the best part... I don't have to go outside!!

However, the cold might get a little bit more bearable this weekend because it's supposed to SNOW!!!

I think it's safe to say I'm officially engulfed in the Christmas season. Who needs Thanksgiving anyway when you get to make Christmas cookies with your host family and decorate pretty cakes?

This will make writing my finally papers easier...this and hot cocoa


Also, decided on my final travel trip toooooooo.... PARIS!!!

Paris for Christmas, how romantic is that?


Hej hej,

Emily
