A weekend wrapped in love and family

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.

Great weekend

Hello you lovely people, hope you all had a great weekend, I know I did.

Started off by working late on a friday night and then finished packing and headed to my grandparents house. My grandma misunderstood and thought I was coming over around 3PM and had been waiting since. She was super happy to see me when I showed up around 7PM. I had a bit to eat and then parked myself on the couch with them watching Let’s Dance. Went to bed around 11PM and could not fall asleep. I think it was the coffee I had around 8.30PM that was messing with me. Saturday I woke up around 8.30, had a coffee and breakfast and around 10 I headed to the mall to pick up a few things before I left for Stockholm.

Arrived at Azerina’s house around 12 and got to see a friend from high school. After a while we went to the store and in the meantime my sistaah had arrived and had to wait for us in front for the house for about 20 minutes. Seeing her face was hilarious when we finally showed up, we told her we’d be there in 5-10 minutes. We had a quick lunch and then headed out to Täby Centrum, a big mall. My main attraction was Sephora. I needed to pick up a few things. Ended up not buying it because I’m going to London soon and it’s so much cheaper there. Back home we got ready to dinner at Piren, a restaurant right by the water in Kungsholmen. Food was delicious, I had a salad witch buffalo mozzarella. YUM! Went to bed around 1AM. Yesterday (Sunday) we woke up around 7AM and had coffee and breakfast before 9AM I think. We joked around that we we’re acting like a bunch of old ladies. We chilled at home all day until 1PM when we went to Söder for a lunch with friends, including Linda, all the way from Sarajevo. It was great seeing her, we get to see each other again, very soon. When I go to Bosnia beginning of June.

All in all it was a very chill and relaxing weekend with amazing people around me. What more can a girl ask for!?
