I cannot tell you how glad I am that it is Friday… I really have to take some time to relax before I am heading to a big trade show next week from Wednesday till Saturday. I ams till fighting my cold which got worse over night but I had an amazing day at IKEA yesterday with Christian’s sister. But more about that later in this High Five For Friday post:
1. New Dining Table
Last week, right before we wanted to take off to go to my hometown for the weekend, the delivery guys arrived and delivered our new amazing dining table! And I can tell you, it is HUGE compared to the old one! We are now able to fit at least 8 people around it for a proper dinner and as soon as I got my kitchen I promise that this table will be filled with lovely people, beautiful decorations and yummy food on a regular basis!
2. Starting with the Decorations now
Even though, it is still August, it feels more like fall over here in southern Germany. Temperatures do not climb higher than 20°C these days and the flower shops are selling sun flowers which is always a sign for fall approaching. I am not a massive fan of the fall (I am more a spring and summer kind of girl) but this year, I decided to like it! There is no point in fighting or hating it as it will always be there. So, I just go along with it and make the best out of it. And these sunflowers look very nice on our new dining table, don’t they?
3. Tupperware Microwave Rice Cooker
Cooking is very hard at the moment due to the fact that we do not have a proper kitchen installed (I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to the 24th of September when it will be ready to use! Until then, I have to live with the means our rental kitchen provides. On top of that, Christian’s sister gave me her Tupperware microwave rice cooker which is a brilliant idea! You simply fill in the rice, pour water on top of it and put it in the microwave for around 10-12 minutes. The rice that came out was the best I’ve ever had! Cleaning up the cooker is very simple and does not take long either…
4. A Trip to IKEA
I have always been a massive IKEA fan and I am glad that Christian’s sister shares this addiction with me. Yesterday, we went to IKEA for another round of home supplies shopping. Before we were hitting the store, we stopped by the restaurant and I had this yummy and very cute blueberry cupcake. Shopping afterwards was a blast! We’ve spent 5 hours in IKEA in total and spent a fortune but it was totally worth it!!!
5. New Bed
Another highlight of the week was the delivery of our new box spring bed which Christian assembled yesterday while we were at IKEA shopping for new bed linen… The bed is incredibly big compared to the old one and the mattress is extremely comfortable! My first night was great apart from the cold that I am suffering. I cannot wait to crawl back in for another few minutes before leaving to work today.
This weekend is going to be another great one! Today, in the afternoon, Christian and me taking some time for ourselves to relax and hopefully cure my cold. Tomorrow, we are attending a Russian wedding which I am a little bit afraid of considering the amount of vodka they expect us to drink… but I am also excited to see a traditional Russian wedding.
Sunday will be filled with cuing our massive vodka-hangovers (I already plan for that just in case…) and making travel plans! This week, I booked several trips! A spontaneous one in September to Bardolino at the Lake of Garda in Italy and another weekend trip with my Spanish friend to Vienna. I can’t wait to start making plans as I have not been traveling since April which is a very long time for me!!!
