A Swedish weekend

This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my two years in California. This full post can be found here.

This was a really nice weekend. It started with that luxury cinema on Friday, continued with shopping, a birthday dinner at Cheesecake Factory and party at Stingaree, and ended with a day at the beach. Awesome!

Yesterday I got home really really late after an amazing evening. It began at 1pm at the tattoo studio in San Diego I found online. It seemed like a nice place so I made an appointment for next Sunday, exciting! I had picked up Karin earlier and we two drove to Fashion Valley. After a while Jessica joined us and eventually Giorgia. I did a little shopping, as usual. First I bought a new mascara from Clinique at Bloomingdale’s. Probably the first and only time I’ll ever shop at that store. And then I bought a jeans skirt and a green shirt from Hollister. A small purse from Guess and a belt that I used as a strap for the tiny purse. I also tried on a bikini at Victoria’s Secret that I late last night ordered online, they don’t have my size in stores… Since I’m gonna be spending a lot of time at the beach here I need more than one bikini. So I actually also found one at Abercrombie that I also will order online because I have 40% off.

At 8:30pm we got our table at the Cheesecake Factory. It was Karin’s birthday and it’s not an uncommon thing to eat at the Cheesecake Factory at your birthday. I think I heard four birthday songs last night.

I love that they have the Skinnylicious menu. My dessert this time was a chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake. And it was as good as the other ones. Karin had a cheesecake with a cherry on top, she gave it to me and I tried making a knot on the stem with my tongue and I actually did it.

Jessica and Giorgia are under 21 so unfortunately they couldn’t go with us to downtown. So me and Karin went to my car, changed, and met Victoria there. She was working until 10pm. I drove to downtown and we spent the rest of the night at Stingaree again. Last night it was way better music and I had flat Ecco sandals, so my feet were super comfortable the whole night. Awesome and so much more fun! We found out that the nightclub is a three level nightclub with the top floor on the roof. It was really nice up there!

I drove Karin home and got home to Carlsbad around 3:30am. I was too tired to get up at 9 to work out, so I skipped it again. On Tuesday it begins!

Today I picked up Jessica in Del Mar and we drove to Coronado beach. It was a really beautiful day today. A little windy but it was not especially cold. We lay at the beach for a long while before Karin and Victoria got there. Super awesome! From now on I’m gonna be spending my weekends on the beach instead of spending money. I have a lot I want to do, for example a weekend in Phoenix next month.

The later it got, the colder it got. So at 5 we went back to the car with all of our stuff and found a pizzeria and shared two pizzas. Back home and now it’s late again. I don’t understand how time can just fly by when you sit by the computer! But now I have a hum about what to do in Phoenix.
