2nd Part of #LauraandLucie in Switzerland – the Birthdaypart


13. May 2014 by swissfitchick

Welcome to the second round of the get together of 2 crazy blogger chicks. Sorry Laura. I am the chick, you are the badass. Bloobs and Balls.

So you can imagine how happy I was when I woke up after several hours of sleep on my birthday (Friday, May 9th – mark your calendar) and this lady started singin’ ‘Happy Birthday’ from over her bed πŸ™‚ (YES, we haven’t met each other before, and we slept in the same room. I think I snored.)

I REGRET that I did not take a pic of my flat these days – imagine two ladies in a tiny 1-and-a-half-room-appartment. Everything was ALL OVER THE PLACE. There was definitely not a lot of space left to set a foot on Β – but none of us cared and it was just a cosy mess. It felt like we lived like this since forever.

We got up and in true blogger fashion the first thing that came to our minds was FOOD. BREAKFAST. Though until it was actually time to eat, it took us a while…..preparing (all accompanied with chit-chatting non-stop), cleaning the bowls, decorating and then photographing. Wait, we carried all the stuff out to the patio to catch the perfect light. #sonormal #sobloggerstyle

Twerk it Baby!!!

We stayed and relaxed in the steambath and the Hamam Pool! It was sooo nice. Perfect Birthdaytreat. Then cycled home and then cycled to the grocery store to pick up the stuff for my party. It was a lot. Too much?? Haha. We couldn’t ride anymore and our bikes almost collapsed from all the booze and food πŸ™‚ Bike Bike We finally showered (we smelled.) and then got all dolled up –

(aka – Lucie standing in front of the mirror for a solid hour not being able to decide which outfit. L1:’It’s too short. I can not wear this. I am too old for that.’ L2:’ NO! Look at those quads! You can wear this, it looks hot!’ I love her.)Β  – and then rushed to the office (by car this time) to prepare the buffet.

Birthday Yes, I held the party in my office – cause our office is cool like that. And everyone likes to party. I loved having Laura around and introduce her to my friends and Mom and her to see where I work. Everyone loved her – how can they not? The party was super. I did have a little breakdown – first birthday wihtout the man after 5 years. Not easy. But I had all the support I needed there!!


BLENDS, NOW FRIENDS with booties (=shoes.). And booties (=the other.)

Birthday Birthday BirthdayA great night, but the BEST thing about it was the end. We collapsed into our beds by midnight and it started POURING outside. So we hung there each in her cosy bed, surfing in the net, posting pics and chatting on and off about the party – while listening to the rain. PERFECT.

Saturday (we slept in again – I love that we are both sleepyheads!!) – I got up while Laura was still in dreamland and went for a run. Then I cooked up a Frittata (Laura has pics, sorry) and then I brought her to the station for her trip to France. No like. I felt so odd by myself!! I worked all day at the office and was the happiest gal when Sylvia called me up to ask me over for a dinner and movie night. JUST what I needed! A healthy dinner, NO alcohol and SATC 2.

Just so you know (and I am sure you were dying to know this) – the massagepillow is a joke. It does NOT massage your back and it is SO loud you can not even understand your own word.

Sunday was LEGDAY (I spare you the whining. But I have a LOT of PAIN!! Nope, I am NOT whining.) and more work at the office. And mealprep!! I am officially in my first week at LBC!! So excited to see how it goes. First day down 100% adherence – that will only be for 2 weeks and then losen up. SO motivated (still).

Scrambled Eggs

Thank God Laura came back in the evening, I picked her up and we chatted about Dijon. I missed her! Today is Canyoning day for her. I did the same tour a few years back -and ohmygod it is soooooo cool. I can not wait to hear how she liked it.

Do you ride your bike on a daily basis like I do? I am SO dependent. Without my bike I am lost – I even cycle in rain and snow.

What do you provide for a party if you have to bring something savory? Laura’s Guacamole was so good!! And Sylvia’s pie as well – though it was supposed to be with ground meat, but I forgot to buy that. #majorfail

Favorite Chick-Flick? SATC. Hands down. I can NOT admit how many times I saw the series AND the movies.

  1. SATC = the ultimate escapism πŸ™‚

    Ahhh I miss my bike, I’m dreaming of buying a new one this summer… I loved our old house as it was so quick and easy to cycle everywhere but our new one (in the UK) is on some not very nice roads so it’s a bit trickier, more of a cycle for sport place rather than transport as you can’t get everywhere safely 😦

  2. I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed your birthday! Confession: I’ve never seen a single episode of SATC. I have seen the movies though!

  3. you girls are the cutest!!! happy belated pretty lady<3

  4. OMG! I can’t even believe I missed your birthday! That’s what I get for being away all weekend 😦 But happy [belated] birthday, love! I’m so glad to hear that you had such an awesome one, with tonnes of good food, family, and friends πŸ™‚ And I’m with you on SATC being the absolute best chick flick there is. It’s actually been a while since I’ve watched it… I should probably dig into my DVDs and refresh my memory.

    • Thank you!
      And yes – it’s my favorite too. I watched SATC 2, I think next time I start with Episode 1 of the series again. Can’t go wrong there πŸ™‚

  5. I don’t think that dress is too short on your at all- it looks great :)! I am a HUGE SATC fan when it comes to the series but i didn’t think the movies lived up…they were still fun to watch though! There are way too many great chick flicks for me to list a single favorite but one of them is definitely When Harry Met Sally- I could watch it on repeat!

  6. The Devil Wears Prada. Wait, did I just admit that? πŸ˜‰

    So glad you got to celebrate with Laura- you two really are like two peas in the #strangebutgood pod. I once bought a bike a few years back with big intentions……after one ride and a sore…section-it never happened again.

  7. It was SO much fun! I’m so happy I could celebrate with you. We should make it a tradition. πŸ™‚

    And yes, my crotch is STILL sore. No biking here, but I did go paragliding. About to go hike some waterfalls. Wheeeee!

  8. Okay, I insist we watch SATC when I visit you because by now I’ve only ever watched the first movie and fragments of several episodes when they were on TV. No need to worry, though, I still got enough chick flick experience in ;). Picking just one would be super hard. If ‘Love, actually’ counts than that one. I’ve lost count of how often I’ve watched it so far.
    Anyway, I’m jealous of the fun time you and Laura had – a totally deserved blast of a birthday weekend. And #switzerlandtwerk has to be the best fitness hashtag ever.

  9. I am A PART OF THE BITTER PARTY OVER HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wanted to be there. I wanted to be there x 10000000!!!!!! I plan on going to NZ at the end of August, wanna meet me there? Because I know it’s SOOOOOOOO close to Switzerland! LOL!

  10. You two are such stunners! I loved this recap and I’m so happy you enjoyed your party πŸ™‚ Fav girls night movie is definitely Julie and Julia, for obvious reasons lol!

  11. I wish I had a bike to ride everywhere! I need to get on buying one and just doing it. No one rides here but who cares? I don’t need to be like everyone else. πŸ˜‰

    And Happy Late Bday! Such great pics! Loved the boots you guys wore with your dresses.

    Happy birthday!!!! It looks like you had a wonderful party! I love your attitude towards life πŸ™‚ Keep shining on!

  18. […] Laura insisted on going for an early workout on Saturday……ok, that’s a shit lie. I had to force her to meet at 8 (I wanted to meet at 7:30) and she couldn’t stop whining ;). But she was a happy camper after our kickass workout at 24!! Right Sweetie?! Hahhaa. πŸ™‚ We had to practise twerking, cause it was too long ago – actually almost exactly one year. […]

Who thought I would ever write again. Link in Bio. β€š'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
