Know that song?
One of my favorites. And it kind of fits to our last week – christmas day and boxing day were definitely FILLED with rain. It was pouring like there’s no tomorrow and the people in the Alps were buried in snow.
But then, on Friday morning when I cycled home after the gym, it looked like this in Basel:
Beautiful. And marvelous. Happy MIMM!! Thank you Katie!
So, to be honest, I don’t even have so much to tell you about this weekend. As mentioned, it was VERY quiet after the christmas week and with New Year’s ahead. I had some good food of course….
Speaking of workouts: After Friday’s Kick Ass legday (SO SORE *whinewhinewhine*), I did a Yoga Class on Saturday morning with my Baron Baptiste DVD on our massive TV. I’m kind of thankful that my man thinks we need a cinema at home. As crazy as this monster is, it’s pretty darn fabulous too.
The only little irritating point here was the topless and hairy-chest men doing that Yoga class. Is that marketing? Jesus. Not so sure about that. Maybe it’s because it’s a few years old…..a few outfits of the Yogis made me raise my eyebrows as well. But remember – inhale….exhale…..Oh my. So sorry. I had to. Bbbbbbaaaaahahahahahah 🙂
Ok, I digress – another workout happened on Sunday morning. I did weights (triceps, biceps, abs and HIIT) and then Sandro and me went for a nice and short run. The sun was out again and it was breathtaking.
After breakfast, we finally started and finished a project that was on the list since months now – trimming my old kitchen table from a fairly ugly brown to shabby chic white. This table is one of my dearest memories of my childhood – it used to stand in our kitchen and I ate my breakfast there as a child every single morning. Also, there are tons of pics of my brother, me and Mom baking and crafting on this table. But my most precious memory are the talks with Dad – when we were alone for dinner, we used to have cold food (Deli meat, cheese, bread, yogurt, tea) and then sit there at this table until late night and talk. If I had a wish, I would want these evenings back.
Soooo, that’s it! We will be heading to Basel this afternoon to be ready for the pre-new-year’s-party tonight! Can not wait. Tomorrow will be non existent. But I made sure you have something to read 🙂

Did you ever prepare/paint furniture at home?
Vintage or modern? I love a mix of both. And both is a must in my appartment.
Do you think topless or belly-free outfits are appropriate in a gym or class?
