Monday - Again

Hello good morning!!!
Today, I'm linking up with Leeann, Sami and Dana to tell you all about my lil weekend...enjoy, and don't forget to hop on over and see what others did over the weekend.


I am so not going in order to tell you what I did (or didn't do!!) but here are a few things I thought were somewhat worth mentioning...the usual, scatter-brained and random Monday post:

I finally, and fully started watching Downtown Abbey. Where have I been? I am loving it.
Nothing else was on one evening and I really felt like staying home and relaxing and it just so happened that this show was on (first episode of the first season, so I had to watch it). It made me smile and love old Europe even more.

Also, my weekend was filled with lots of food and drinks. And a lot of walking on Friday. Needless to say, I love to walk but my legs hurt really bad...hmmm, I might be out of shape these days.
I got to walk around my city and enjoy the little things, like random tourists asking me to take pictures of them, or a quick tv/newspaper interview in front of one of the most famous sights in the city. It was fun. The interview was awkward because I just don't like being in the spotlight like that, but hey it was for a class, and I felt like those boys deserved my little help.

Since I was walking a lot I got to be a tourist in my own city. I may not live here anymore but it is still my city and my country. ;)

If you've been to Luzern, Switzerland you know this...the lion monument.
 
 I so wanted the guy in this picture to move but he kept on sitting there.
I love spending time in this little cafe. 

The staff in this cafe is halfway good. Yes, I am mentioning this on the blog.
Reviews are not my thing on here but I have to say that as much as I love this place...when the boss is not around the staff is horrible. Not all of them. I have my favorites. But come on, have some decency and respect and don't make your customers wait, beg for someone to take the order or make us question whether or not you want our money...really.

  I'll keep coming back because I like my milk coffee there.

On weekends I don't have to rush, so I like to take my sweet time and get ready. Putting on my favorite body lotion in slow motion and taking in the whole cocoa scent was one of my highlights.

I also have to mention the following on here because what would a random Monday post be without two random topics (and the admiration of certain words/actions/conditions), like a wedding and a divorce in one sentence? Exactly. 

May I just add...yay, finally to both topics?
Thank you.
Not that I approve of the wedding but the conditions are fabulous!!

Though the highlight in general was to end up with a picture like the following:

Excuse the poor iPhone quality, I think someone was shaking the camera/phone ;-)

You may recognize one or two in this picture...well, me, trying to stretch my arms and making me taller (one day it is going to happen!), and then there's Christianna from The Girl with the Blue Bow. If you are reading her blog you know she's traveling through Europe for the next seven weeks and Switzerland is her first lil stop. While she has fabulous guest bloggers helping her out I am sure she will be filling us all in on what she did while having fun in beautiful Europe!!! Cannot wait, but until then it is all on FB. Just saying.

That was my weekend.
Filled with new people (Friday), stupid allergies (oh yes!!!), some rain, more sun, shows, news, and good coffee.

Hope your weekend was as much fun...if not more!!!!

xoxo

This looks like a fun and relaxing weekend! That little cafe looks darling. It's too bad the staff isn't with it all the time. Hopefully they'll get their act together for you soon ;)

Looks like it was a great weekend!! I was so busy this weekend that it was hard to get up this morning for work. It was a good busy though - working on the blog, saw Magic Mike, bowling, swimming, brunch and Sunday Funday!

That monument is SO impressive! I bet it's breathtaking in real life!
