Hola!

How are you all!?

I’m just stopping by to say hello. I’ve been trying to get everything ready for when I’m away on vacation in the next few weeks, therefore the absence.

This weekend I got to spend some quality time with some of my fave before we all split up and head in different directions. Actually, while writing that last sentence I realized I get to see them when we are away as well.

Three weeks in Bosnia and Croatia is what I’m looking forward too…

What are you guys doing this summer. Are you traveling.

My wonderful weekend.

After last weekend and the week I had I was really looking forward to the weekend. One of my childhood best friends Azerina was coming to see me and Saturday couldn’t come fast enough. She only lives an hour and 20 minutes away but life gets in the way a lot of the times and we don’t see each other as much as we’d like. I picked her up at the train station and we went to pick up lunch, then went back to my place where we chilled until it was time to go see Ami. While there we had some pancakes and hung out being girls and helping each other get ready. We had dinner reservations at Tabazco at 7.45 and stayed there until almost 11PM. Such fun times.

Azerina left around 1PM. I went back home and did the dishes before heading to go see my friend Nejra. But before I met up with her I did a little bit of birthday party supplies shopping. I think I’m almost done. There’s not much left. The menu is done as well and I know what the tables will look like. My sister is doing the cake, I don’t know what it will look like  but she promised to stick to the colors I’ve chosen.

Met up with Nejra and we walked around the Christmas market for a while and then sat down for a carrot cake and a chai latte. We sat in a corner on the second floor and didn’t even notice we were alone. All of a sudden this girl who works there comes over to tell us they closed almost 10 minutes ago. We headed towards the car and ended up sitting in Nejras car for another hour. I guess we had a lot of things to catch up on.

The rest of the evening was all about Chicago PD. Such a great show!

Here are some pictures I snapped this weekend (in no special order)

Tabazco

So, there is this restaurant/bar/lounge where I live and I absolutely love it. It’s called Tabazco and it’s located in an alley way where you wouldn’t think a restaurant would be. Let alone a restaurant this modern and nice. But, the fact that it is located there makes it even more special.

If anyone of you ever come to Sweden (Västerås) you have to visit this place.

The best weekend ever!!!

With friends and family around, that’s when I’m the happiest!

Friday afternoon my mom, dad sister and aunt finally came to visit. It had been almost 2 months since I’ve seen them last! We started the weekend off with coffee at my place before heading to Västerås! The ladies along with my grandma, Dina, Ami and some other dear and familiar faces saw the play Ja, Mahalusa. It was super funny and we all enjoyed it…!!! After the play we went for some coffee. Saturday started off with a nice breakfast and then some shopping. Later that day we had lunch at my grandmas house and then picked up Dina and A then headed to my house where Ami and S were waiting. Pre-party while the ladies got ready and then we headed to Norrköping to see Dino Merlin…the king of Bosnian music. Such a fun night!!!! Sunday was a very lazy one considering we only got about 4 hours of sleep. Woke up just before Ami and her mom arrived. Ami cut my mom and dads hair while we all hung out. We threw together some lunch and after that everyone left. I was gonna go by Amis house that evening but I didn’t, I was too tired and went to bed around 9PM.

My friends and my family are the most important people in my life, without them life wouldn’t be worth living.

Friday night!

Friday night after work I was supposed to meet up with Ami and her cousin E but then decided I just couldn’t bother stressing to make it in time. Later that night, around 7PM I decided to go anyway and met up with them just in time for the 8PM showing of Let’s Be Cops. What a great and funny movie, it was just what I needed. After the movie we went and got something to eat at Subway. Believe it or not, it was my first time ever. I had never been prior to that and I doubt I’ll go anytime soon. It just wasn’t my cup of tea I guess.

My weekend!!!

Love weekends like the one I’ve had. Minus the fact that I didn’t fall asleep until 4AM this morning. 

The weekend officially started when Dina arrived. I picked her up at the station around 9.15PM. We went to get some food and then headed back to my house. Popped a bottle of white wine and just sat around until 1AM talking about everything. Saturday morning we woke up around 9AM and had a wonderful breakfast together and then worked the rest of the day. Later in the afternoon we headed to a soccer game, it was pouring down rain but we were good sports and stayed for the entire game. After that it was time for a bit to eat. Went home and chilled for a bit before changing and going back into town for dinner. Came home around 11.30PM but didn’t go to bed until 2AM. Sunday was a morning full of work and then I headed for lunch at Ami’s house. Came home much later than I had planned on and then sat down to do some more work. Around midnight I was super tired but wanted to finish and once I did I wasn’t tired anymore. Ended up staying up till 4AM…and then I fell asleep. When my alarm went off at 6.45 there was no way I was getting up. Went back to sleep and got up at 8.45, got ready and headed to work then…

Breakfast time! Only time I do this for breakfast is when I have people over!

I’m old

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.
