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.

PS. Hi to my daily reader from Brazil, I think I know who you are… 😉

Positive vibes

I spent the weekend in Gothenburg with my bff Dina and her sister Ida, my new bff. You know when you immediately click with someone, yeah, that happened. And don’t get me wrong, I’m not surprised at all!!!

Anyway, for the first time in months I decided to take the train as I had a lot of things to do and that would give me the time to do it. There was a 30 minute delay, as usual when I’m going anywhere with public transportation. When we finally took off I couldn’t bother doing any work so I just watched Gossip Girl. Hella late I know! Got to Gothenburg around 8.30 and met up with Dina at the train station with my luggage in tow. We then went to a Turkish restaurant called Tara’s. After a lovely dinner and great conversation we took the bus to Dina and Ida’s place. Me and Dina stayed up and chatted for a while and then went to bed. Woke up pretty early Saturday morning and had a lovely breakfast before getting ready and heading to the park. I brought my computer to work but we didn’t get much done as the sun was shining really bright and I couldn’t see anything. So, we just sat there, chatted, ate ice cream and enjoyed the great weather. We then decided to rent bikes and bike around the park before heading into the city for a sushi dinner. Well, for some reason we couldn’t rent any bikes because the damn machine didn’t accept our credit cards. So there were was a change of plans. We went back to the city and had a very early dinner and then hit the shops. Yes, we decided on an impromptu shopping trip and it was fun. I only got a few things but Dina on the other hand, she went crazy! Everything she picked up was a hit thought and she looked great in it. After spending some cash we went back home, changed and headed back into the city for a movie night. We saw The Other Woman and it was super funny. We couldn’t breathe at times from laughing so hard. When the movie ended we took a walk and stopped by a restaurant to say hi to Dina and Ida’s friend M. She was absolutely stunning and looked exactly like her pictures that I’ve seen. I would have recognized here anywhere in a crowd. I even told her that if I had seen her around town on my own I would be like, ‘I know you!’ After that we ran into some more people the girls knew but ultimately decided to just go home because all three of us were tired, some more than others. (Ida, I’m talking about you 😉 ) Sunday morning we woke up before 9AM and went straight to work. Setting up an office on the kitchen table. Dina and I worked intensively for hours and got everything done. We then had breakfast for lunch and after that got ready and left for the train station again. There we met up with my girls Aida and Adla for a quick drink at Starbucks and then I had to leave. They all said I should move there but I’m not so sure about that…I like my peaceful life here.

After getting home and literally leaving my bag at the door I grabbed my car keys and turned around again. I went to my grandparents house for dinner. After dinner me and my granny went shopping for kitchen appliances because the store was open until 10PM. I got back home around 9PM and went straight to bed.

That was a summary of my lovely weekend with lovely people…hope you had a great one too!!!

Packed and ready to go!

I’ve just finished packing and now I’m ready for a weekend in Gothenburg with my fave! Talked to my mom and she said, and these are her exact words ‘Pozdravi Dinu i poljubi je od mene’ which means ‘Say hello to Dina and give her a kiss from me’. She’s no longer just a friend, she’s family!!! If my mom gets involved in a friendship like that you’re no longer just someone I hang out with. Because I don’t wanna waste my parents time by bringing you around them if I don’t think you’re awesome. And Dina, she’s awesome!!!
