Hey marvelous people!
I hope your week is off to a great start. I try to make this post not tooo long, but I have some fun stuff to share with you. So thankful for the Diva and her Monday party to host this marvelousness!
As mentioned in my Friday post, me and my working colleagues were invited to go to an overnight trip to the Europapark, a fun park in Germany. We started right off with drinks at the office on Thursday afternoon.
The busride to the park was one of the funniest I ever had…..we had a huge bus for ourselves and it reminded me of schooltrips in the past. Music, drinks and silliness all the way.
After checking in the hotel, we went to a fancy restaurant for dinner. And OMGGGG it was REALLY fancy. We were served a 5 (or 6 or 7, I can not remember) course meal. Every course was really small so I didn’t feel stuffed in the end, and it was absolutely BEYOND delicious. I didn’t dare to take pics all the time, but here’s dessert and the treats that came with coffee which I think I ate 2/3 myself. Everyone passed out, but we all know by now that I hardly can say no to dessert.
In the morning, I checked out the pool and Spa – and was amazed. The pool was outdoor and heated, so I could even sneek in a swimming workout and swam 1km. The others joined later and then we all went to the Spa.
Hunger hit in pretty soon and we met at the buffet – where I loaded up on food to eat and…..
….food I stole to eat later. #sorryIneedfoodinmypurse
I was getting hungry all the time when looking at the decoration all over the park!
Group picture fun…..my abs are sore from laughing, I swear.
A Light Box!!! Woohhoo! I was so happy. I didn’t try it yet, as I need some cables and stuff, but I am so excited to start working with this thing.
Please don’t ask me what I did in Saturday. I slept in as I was SO knocked out from the trip and then just hang around all day doing THINGS. A workout. A walk. Grocery shopping. Stuff. Lunch.
Hm. OH!!!! Another surprise happened – my sweet friend Jessie sent me some goodies from her vacation to the US! She spoiled me big time and I am so excited to try all the stuff.
She also sent me this peanut butter, but because I opened it right after discovering it in the package, I couldn’t lay it down for the pic…..🙂 It’s so good!
Sunday morning I joined the Bootcamp class at the lake. I was fighting my inner lazy duck to get up and out, but I was SO happy I did. Not only was it a GREAT workout, also the weather was beautiful and fall-y sunny which I LOVE.
This is still one of my favorite recipe – so easy and so delicious! Though I wished I had seen the pancake queen’s post sooner, so I would have made these sexy babies here….
The rest of the day was easy and relaxing. Cinema…..
By the end of this weekend I was thankful, really thankful. I have the privilege to work at a great office with crazy lovely and wonderful people, I have a sweet and caring man who I love, I have a lovely home right at the lake and I have a healthy family and great friends – real ones and ‘virtual’ ones. These things are not a matter of course. There are enough people out there who are unemployed, lonely, sick or hungry. I don’t take these things for granted and I am grateful for every moment I can live a healthy and happy life.
Having said that, I am thinking of my Dad today. He would have turned 68 today. His last Birthday we celebrated 13 years ago. Love you Dad.
What are you thankful for today?
Ever been to a funpark? Do you like funparks?
