So this weekend I went out with some girlfriends and we had fun. I came home around 3AM and went to bed after 4AM. Woke up the next day at 3.20PM…yes you read it right 3.20PM. My whole day was ruined because I had so many plans and things to do. Ended up laying in bed all day instead, well until 9PM and then I started cleaning. This morning it was really hard getting up because I didn’t go to bed until almost 4AM, I just wasn’t tired. This is a great reminder that I shouldn’t be going out, I’m way to old for it.
So, as many of you know, I love sushi, and I have been craving it for weeks now. Yesterday a co-worker and I were gonna go to out local sushi spot for lunch but it was closed. Today we decided to go again, only to find a notice on the door that they are closed. Only for vacation though, thank GOD…
Second day at work and let me tell you, I feel like I’m already getting back in the swing of things. Yesterday I was here around 7.30AM and today even earlier than that. As of right now, everything is going well. But, I do miss being on vacation…
So I’ve been liking the matching top and pants trend for a while but could never decide if that would be something that suits me. Well, a while ago I got this black and white top that is really flattering and I just saw that they have the pants to match, so I decided to get them as well. I just placed the order so I don’t know how I’m gonna like it but I’ll make sure to show you when I get them.
Looks something like this.
I love the fact that you can wear it with heels as well as flats
Ok, so I am not a golfing fan at all. I honestly couldn’t care less about it. But yesterday two co-workers of mine went to the local golf course for lunch and some range practice and I tagged along. Beside the fact that it was too warm being out there with no shade it was pretty fun. E gave me instructions on how to play because she knows how to. I was ok, I got my ball in the air and it flew up to 45 meters. Pretty good if you ask me!!!
So last week I told you about my cousin visiting from the US.
My weekend started by taking the afternoon off thursday and making the 2.5 hour drive to my hometown. We had a fun afternoon/evening and Amira and I stayed up until 2AM just catching up. Woke up early Friday and worked from home all day, before a bite to eat and some shopping in Linköping, my bff Ada joined us aswell. It was superfun seeing her.
That evening we drove to Oskarshamn where our family lives, first stop was my cousin’s house. We sat in the backyard and had a BBQ dinner before playing football and basketball with the kids. Of course we also watched the World Cup games on TV. It was another late night. Saturday morning after breakfast we packed up and headed to the lake. Played there for a while before heading to my aunt’s house for lunch. There I got a major headache because I got water in my ear from jumping into the water with the kids, they dared me, I had to. The next few hours I spent trying to get the water out. I tried every method I could find online. Alcohol in your ear, a blow dryer, jumping on one foot, more water in your ear, laying down on the trampoline while the kids jumped on it. NOTHING worked. Laid down for a while and then took a painkiller before heading to my other cousins house. Another BBQ dinner and then it was time for the Holland-Costa Rica game. At half time we went back to my cousin’s house, where I was sleeping and watched the rest of the game. Woke up around 10 on Sunday and after breakfast headed back to my other cousins house for some coffee before hitting the road and going back home to my sister’s house. Went by dad’s summer-house to mow the lawn and also hung out with my cousins for a while before driving back home to my house. Got home pretty late, jumped in the shower and then went to bed. Couldn’t fall asleep until 2AM.
Great weekend with my family is just what I needed. This coming weekend I’m going to Gothenburg and next week I’m off to Bosnia, can’t wait! Hope you all had a great weekend as well.
PS. Hi to my daily reader from Brazil, I think I know who you are… ;)
This picture right here is my fave from London, for many different reasons. It was taken after a few hours i Hyde Park drinking wine. It took forever to get a decent picture and in the midst of it all we blocked a garbage truck from driving. This picture is one of those pictures that comes with a story…and brings back memories. I think I’ll always remember this trip to London because of this picture.
Before I show you more pictures from London and what I got I wanna tell you about this amazing person that I know. Her name is Stephanie and I first met her a little over three years ago. She’s from Australia but came to visit my hometown in Sweden. We have a friend in common. As soon as we met we hit it off straight away. I remember how I loved the fact that she was so free-spirited. She was silly too and that’s something I love about a person, we don’t always have to take ourselves super serious. Stephanie is simply amazing and I’m not the only one that thinks that. I finally had the chance to meet up with her this weekend in London where she lives now and let me tell you, it was a blast. We met up Sunday for lunch at Prezzo, which might just be my favorite new restaurant. After that we went shopping and ended up in Hyde Park with a few bottles of wine. Later that night we went to see, not so Big Ben and the London Eye, then walked along the Themse before we jumped on a bus out to Battersea and ended up at Steph’s place. There she showed me some of her paintings, and I loved every single one of them.
While shopping we also stopped by The Kooples store to look at the billboard in the store and also pick up the magazine. Steph is one of the models in it!!!
