Marvelous in my Monday – Summer&Full House!


8. July 2013 by swissfitchick

Good morning friends!!
I hope you all had a good weekend and a great start into the new week. Summer has finally arrived, and that is MARVELOUS. 


After a not such a great week, I must say, the weekend was a blast. Our house was open all weekend and we had loads of guests which was fun and which I love!! 

Every 3 years is the ‘Zürifäscht’, the biggest city-party in Zurich and it really IS massive. It’s said, that 3 millions of people wandered to the party which is huge for a tiny country like Switzerland. As we live by the lake, we were in the middle of everything. We took advantage of that and invited a bunch of people for drinks beforehand and went to the partymile later on.

I prepared a balanced buffet of appetizers....

I will talk a little more about this buffet and the single dishes in tomorrow’s post!

Played around with the camera.....

A sip of Sangria anyone? :-)

Saturday morning I joined the Zurich-City-Bootcamp again and darn, it was double intense to last time I went!! I was challenged, but it was fun to be out and moving with the group.


Later in the day one of my best friends came round our place with her husband. We planned to spend the day together at the lake and that they will stay overnight and we will join again the party in the evening.

So first, we headed out to indulge on some vitamin D….


When our stomachs started grumbling we returned home and turned on the grill – best dinner ever!

Salad with carrots and berries and strawberry-bliss-dressing

There was another firework this evening, but we wanted to enjoy it away from the crowd and took a little walk up the hill behind our house to watch it from there. It was perfect! The atmosphere was so peaceful and nice and the view over the lake with all the boats and lights priceless.

You might remember, he was my personal trainer when he lived in Basel for a while and I met him again after 5 years in Berlin past April. This weekend he came to Zurich and of course we took the chance to catch up again. We enjoyed the sun at the Lounge Club on the lake….


…a drink….

…..and the good company.


Was so good to see you!!

All in all a great Summer Weekend, that made up for a rough week!

Happy Monday!

Has Summer arrived at the place where you live? 

Favorite Summer drink?

  1. Looks like you had an incredible weekend. I am loving your kitchen table.. it is yours right?! 🙂 And since I’m just assuming you had one of those alcoholic beverages for me (haha).. thank you! Ha Ha

  2. Sounds like you had such a great time! It must have been so fun to be in the middle of all the partying! Currently drooling over your salad 🙂

  3. Ah sounds like a wonderful summer weekend- the sunshine makes everything infinely better! It’s definitely summer in London right now which I’m loving…and of course that allows for daytime drinking ;)! Depending on my mood, I usually go for prosecco, rose or sangria :)!

    Wow….that is some summer weekend! What fun! I love watching the fireworks, unfortunately we weren’t in a great spot to see them very good, this year…..bummer. I love fruity refreshing drinks in the summer!

  5. What a lovely weekend — it’s great to have wonderful food, fireworks, and good company after a rough week! 🙂 Those fireworks are amazing, and the views of the lake are incredible. My brother spent a lot of time in Geneva a few years ago, and he came to the conclusion that Switzerland is one of the best, most stunningly beautiful countries on the planet — so it’s awesome that you get to soak up all that natural beauty! 🙂

  6. Summer has finally arrived…yes!

    Love all the pics and the smiles!

    Have a great Monday!

  7. Looks like a great weekend with friends!…if you consider “buckets” of rain summer weather…then yes it has arrived 😉

Who thought I would ever write again. Link in Bio. ‚'In essence, love is the consistent embodiment of care, compassion, kindness, and joy toward yourself, your partner, and each other as two interconnected and supported beings. If you encounter those feelings, you can't work around your own vulnerability.

But: there is one emotion that is stronger than fear, and that is forgiveness. For power is never simply a possession but an exercise; power is about how we understand ourselves. If we can forgive, we can let go. If we can let go, we can detach. If we can detach, we find happiness.' #blogger #heartstories #detachment #happiness
