Today is MONDAY, which means it’s MIMM – Marvelous in my Monday-time hosted by lovely Katie from healthydivaeats.com.

MIMM

So much to talk about from the last few days! No idea where to start. Maybe with some food? Hmmmyes, Food is always good. I had this whole package of blue corn chips done in 2 days (which is in my opinion pretty long for a package of tortilla chips). I love them!

In the evening, Sandro and me went out for drinks. We had a gift coupon for prosecco and tapas in a bar just around the corner. It was snowing so hard we had to pack up in thick winterclothes despite the short walk! SaLU

The tapas were not worth taking a picture. Thanks God I wasn’t all that hungry, because it was quite disapointing what they served there. At least we had free drinks and good talks! Some future planning happened 🙂 Nothing exciting, believe me, no wedding so far 🙂

After drinks we went for a short walk along the lake as it was SO beautiful with all the snow.

We tried to take a really cool pic from Sandro jumping in the snow. Did not happen.

Wooops!!!

Wooops!!!

Saturday morning I slept till around 8 am and woke up totally low sugared and weak cause I kind of skipped dinner the night before. So I just took it easy with a short Yoga session and a short run in the snow. We chilled in our favorite coffeeplace later on and then some shopping happened, yay! Sandro bought me some winterworkout stuff for christmas. Yup, I already got my christmas present 🙂 I think he prefers to do that – let me choose things and then saying: ‘Babe, I buy this for you for christmas, alright?’ 🙂 probably much easier than thinking about something himself and finding it….totally ok with me, I love the new stuff!!! I also bought the high heels in the background (in grey) but on another day when Sandro wasn’t with me…..

Ahem.....hello...?

Ahem…..hello…?

Ahaaa!

I didn’t buy those yet. But I want them! Both!! Haha. I am in love with Asics.

Saturday night was magic. We were invited by some of our best friends for a traditional yearly ‘Friend’s Christmas Dinner’. It was SO great to see all of the friends, chatting, laughing, listening to music, having great food and company. We stayed till 2 am in the morning and loved it.

One couple came with their newborn. I couldn’t get over how cute he was and especially his sweater. Isn’t that the most adorable thing ever??

In the morning I cycled to the Pool club to burn off some of the sweets and drinks. Cardio, weight lifting and swimming – and I felt like newborn.

Sweat!!!

A healthy post-workout-fuel was needed!!

My favorite Sundaymorning breakfast. Filling but light, balanced and healthy. Sandro was pretty hangovered, so we decided to head off to get some fresh air in. We drove up to a hill where the view is pretty and walked for more than an hour in the snow. It was GOOD.

  1. you are ADORABLE Lucie! This whole post is just one big happy fest! Even though I knew what you were doing by e-mails, I love seeing pictures of the events you told me about! Yay for early Christmas gifts =) Joshua and I always know what were getting one another. I’m awful at surprises, and he’s kind of the same way when it comes to gifts. Oh well.. such is life! Ha Ha.

    && please tell me you will be sharing the recipe for those pumpkin cookies with all of us???? They looks ridiculously good.

    && one last night.. YAY FOR ASICS!!! =)

    • Thank you so much Hunnie! It was really a nice weekend. I think it is totally convenient to know what the other wants. It’s easy and you can be sure he’ll love it! 🙂 I’ll post the recipe later that week, promised! I have to get my Mom to give me the runners for christmas 🙂

  2. What a fun weekend! All that snow there is crazy! I think I’d go nuts if we had that much snow already. Love those aisics. I’m always a fan of the bright colors 🙂

    Oh my gosh you are so stinkin cute!! Seriously your snow pics are adorable. I’m so glad you had such a lovely weekend!
    Jealous of your new workout gear–I need some lululemon gear BAD.

  4. Eeee!!! You got snow! How absolutely gorgeous!! And how cute is it that you and Sandro decided to play in it 😀 I miss playing in the snow, but it’s just been so dratted cold here that I’d rather sit inside with a hot cup of coffee and look at it from the warmth of my home.

    So glad that you had such a marvelous weekend! Hope your week is off to just as great of a start.

    • Oh I can imagine that it is so much colder in Canada! It’s not really cold here yet, just a few degrees below zero so it’s possible to be outside. Sitting in the warm and cosy home and looking at the snow is just as nice!! Have great day Hunn!
