Hiya!
Today I finally got the time and all the supplies for my latest room decor project.
The plan is to make a real life Pinterest wall. I'm a very visual person so I like to surround myself with aesthetically pleasing things. I simply can't have plain white walls for too long. The project is taking a little longer than I expected but it's so much fun, to see it take shape! My poor printer. 😂

My printed Pinterest pics

Haha I even got a scissor blister

Finally taking shape 😍

Have a good one xx

Sunday 14th May

We spent most of the day in bed, not really doing anything than talking. It was so sweet to just hang out without any distractions. Just the two of us.
His mom and sister were coming over for dinner later in the evening, for Mother's Day I guess. G went to a cooking class a couple a weeks ago and he's still raving about it. They cooked mexicain food, so that's what he wanted us to make.
I quickly went through Pinterest and found an awesome recipe. But because he recently moved in, he's got non of the basics. This meant that it took us like forty minutes at the grocery store. Making us late for his family.
Haha I felt like a proper adult, making dinner with G. Whilst trying to make him entertain.
"Maybe you should put on some music, while they're waiting" "Don't forget to give your mom the flowers."
The dinner actually turned out great. We had to eat standing up though, because the breakfast table ( the only table at the moment) only has two chairs. Haha I guess it's not too adult then.
His mom and sister stayed for a couple of hours. And then G and I ended the day with ice cream and a movie. I introduced him to one of my ultimate favourites "Old Boy", the original one of course! I'm not sure that he was sold on it though.

Saturday 13th May
For some reason I woke up at five in the morning, not even a little tired. And after a few minutes G woke up as well. We tried to fall asleep but gave up rather quickly. So G went up to make us breakfast. Haha I made him promise yesterday (in a drunken state) that he'd make me eggs, and that's what he did.
Then we finished one of his Netflix marathons, it was just a couple of episodes left. It was a funny show, I liked it but I cannot for the life of me remember what it was called. It was with that guy from Parks and Rec., Aziz something?
Dammit I'm usually good at this...

After a couple of hours Netflixing we decided that it was time to get out. I just had to introduce him to my latest obsession; Popcorn Caramel,,, you get it. 😂 I keep imagining that scene from Zoolander:
"Orange mocha frappuccino!!!"
And yes that would make the third one this week, I'm not even ashamed, just take my money until I grow tired of it. G was very sceptical to begin with, but once he tasted the awesomeness in beverage form, he couldn't lie.
In other words he liked it too. Obvi... As we were sitting in the sun enjoying our frapps he said that it would've been a perfect day to go to the beach. I was very surprised by the fact that there was a beach in Cph. And asked why we weren't there already!
And as he couldn't find a reason why, to took the metro to the beach. Well apparently there's three beaches there. We went for a walk, but it didn't take long before the giant was hungry again. So we went for burgers.

👽🤖

Afterwards G suggested that we'd get some wine, before he remembered that I don't like wine, so he suggested ciders instead. On the way to the store, he got a text from a colleague inviting us to a barbecue. It's kinda funny that his colleagues invited him today, because he lives ten minutes from where we were. I joked that it was written in the stars.
But first we went back to the beach, had our ciders, and sat there for a bit.

The barbecue turned into a Eurovision party. The fact that most of the other guest were expats, all from Europe, made things a lot more interesting. The host made makeshift flags for each of us.
We even made a drinking game out of it. With rules like :
A sip whenever there's a dramatic key change
A sip for every oversized prop
A sip whenever the stage moved
A shot every time somebody said I/we love you Europe
Etc.
It's safe to say that we got pretty drunk, pretty fast. It was so much fun though!

When a Brit does your flag but can't find the yellow marker 😂

The drinking turned hardcore when the voting results were being announced. We had to do a shot whenever our country got 12points. And for those who's county wasn't in the finale, had to pick a country during the competition. One of us chose Portugal, I don't know if any of y'all watched it but if you did then you know that that was a bad choice. Haha I thought that I as a swede was fucked. She must've had a massive hangover the day after. I honestly don't know how she survived because she downed a bottle of wine, and a couple of beers before the competition even started. She's a champ, that's all I can say!

See you soon xx

Friday 12th May
Yesterday G called to ask me to spend the weekend with him. At this point is sort of a given but it was cute of him to ask. His brother is on a business trip so we'd have the whole apartment to ourselves!

It's a danish holiday so he had a couple of days off. So the plan was that I'd come over around two in the afternoon. But I got a short shift the last min, where I got of at six. It was the only shift I had all week so I couldn't say no. Although I wanted to see him asap.
But taking into consideration that I'd spend the whole weekend at his, it wasn't so bad to loose four hours. 🙈

It was actually nice to work today, it was such a short shift that the time went by fast. And I got to work with some of my favs. So it was alright. I don't know what it is but getting off an hour before closing is so much better than closing. It's just an hours difference, but it feels so much better to leave at 18.00 than 19.15. It's kinda like leaving school early because a class was cancelled or something. It's weird.

After my shift I went straight for the train, and forty some minutes I was holding hands with my guy. I was in a party mood and I kinda wanted to go out dancing. G isn't one of those people who goes out to dance (comme moi) he's more of a house party with beer kinda guy. So instead of asking if we could go dancing, I asked if we could get drunk tonight. He said sure. And we made our way to a grocery store to get some alcohol! I hate beer and I hate wine, so after staring for a while at the beer section, I suggested we'd make mojitos. And to my surprise he said yes.
When I discovered the discount on raspberries, the regular mojito turned into a raspberry one.
We had two problems though the was :
No ice
No mint
Which are two very important ingredients in a mojito. We bought the ingredients we could find, thinking we could find the other ones in an other store. We completely forgot about the holiday though. So all of the grocery stores were closing. We went into a few right before closing but neither mint nor ice was in sight.
What were we to do?!
Walking away from the last store in the area, we walked by a flower shop. G jokingly said that we might find mint there. I thought it was a very small chance, and was about to make a snide remark, when I looked down.
"Wait isn't that a mint plant?" I said and picked up and smelled it. It was!
We had some luck it seemed. But G wasn't too happy about the state of the plant since it stood on the side of the road. He tried to haggle the price down with the florist, but failed. So I just said I'd buy it.
Now we had everything except for ice, and all the stores were closed. "Maybe ice isn't such an important part." I started knowing that that was a lie. But I turned out to be a lie we both agreed to believe.

"Raspberry mojito"

The drink didn't turn out bad, it was actually delicious. It wasn't a mojito though. But the more we drank from it; the less we cared.
I figured that a drinking game would speed up the processes, so I downloaded a random one on my phone. It's called Drink and Tell and it was actually kinda fun. You start of picking categories, and then a question come up with four responses. You pick your response and then the other has to guess which one you picked. If they guess the wrong one they have to drink and if they guess the right one you have to drink.
I'm guessing that the game is meant for more than two people but it worked out fine.
We've known each other for about five months now, so it was a fun way of testing our knowledge about each other. G got most of mine right, I didn't do as well as him but pretty close.

Drink and tell

The drinking game and our special drink, did their jobs. Because it didn't take too long before we both were drunk. So the game became more and more honest until I decided that dancing was more fun than answering questions. So that's what I did, I started dancing! And to my big surprise G joined me. I've never seen him dance before, it was awesome. 😂
I was having the time of my life, until my whole world was spinning. The night ended with making G promise me that he wouldn't let me drink that much again. In my defence, I never did the whole drinking as a teen thing!
Haha it was an awesome night though. Even though I ended up on the bathroom floor. 🙈

The last couple of days have been great, which is the main reason my blog posts have been left in draft. Here they come :)


Thursday 11th May
I probably haven't mentioned the fact that my mom has been on a three week long road trip on the west side ( in mericuh). Well she came home yesterday evening and although she basically started off with complains, it was still nice to have her home. I'm a fairly independent person but it does get lonely to live alone. Especially since I don't have too many people to hang out with, in Sweden that is.
When she got home I was busy with one of my latest projects; painting my room white. I'm doing it alone, so the plan is to do it in sections. I've painted two and a half walls so far.
I'd already checked her work schedule so I knew she had the day off (today). So I didn't feel too bad about not giving her my time immediately.

My day started with painting the second layer of paint on one of the walls. Ugh painting is quite the workout if you don't work out regularly. I was sweating like a pig. When mom finally woke up around two thirty (she must've been jet lagged) I told her that I had a parcel to pick up and if she came along I would introduce her to the cold beverage of her dreams. Yup you guessed it the popcorn caramel frappuccino! She thought it sounded weird but agreed. My parcel was supposed to be my new printer (also for my project) but it was just the ink for it. Ugh I hate it when the send stuff separately. Well at least it was easier to carry around since we were going for the frapps.

"What?"

We sat at the cafe for hours just catching up. And talking about random stuff. It really is nice that she's back even though she gets in my nerves a lot.

On our way home we bumped into a friend of ours My! She was just as excited to see mom as my mom was to see her. They immediately started talking about my moms trip, and I heard stories I'll probably have to hear at least five times more. 😂 But the walk to My's was too short so she invited us up for a cup of tea. And since we had no plans we both agreed. I love days like these, when the day leads you into to something you didn't think would happen that day. Like when I was painting earlier today, I didn't know that I would spend the evening at My's place. Yeah sure it's not a big deal but it's the smallest things that actually makes the days , in my opinion. At least the most mundane ones.

My gets an A+ in "adulting", her life just seems so on check! She's living that Instagram/ Pinterest life. Her apartment is beautifully decorated, and so homey. She's always dressed to impress, but in an effortless way.
And every time you go to her place she's always got amazing snacks. Like usually if you go to a persons house (unless it's a planned event or something) they might offer you some tea or something. Not My though, she brings out the good stuff and some tea of course! I don't know she just seems to have most things under control. And she's simply just an amazing person. She's the kindest person you'll meet. She's one of those people who really sees you even when you're trying to hide. I wanna be a bit like her when I grow up ( for real).

Fromage 🧀

So I'm doing an inspo wall/ art wall. I've been on Pinterest basically all day looking for pictures. And I'm completely obsessed with colourful architectural pictures. I don't know what it is about them but, haha maybe I've discovered a secret passion.

Saturday 6th May
I made a little schedule for myself yesterday, but today I only managed to do two of them. And non of it on time!
Oh well, I really need to get more structured. I was going to get up at ten and work out. I've felt a little puffy lately. which I wouldn't mind if it wasn't for the fact that my clothes aren't fitting as good as it used to. And my other reason for working out (besides my health) is so that my gym card won't feel like such a waste of money. Because I know that the moment I end my membership, I'll regret it and use it as an excuse not to work out.

One of the two things that I actually got done was getting G a housewarming gift. I thought a plant would be a nice gift, since he's got three huge windows now. My original plan was to get him an orchid because that's his favourite flower. But I've never seen him take care of a plant, and orchids are kinda high maintenance. I found two plants that looked really cool, one was orange and green, and the other was purple and green. Personally I thought the orange one was the coolest one, but I thought it might be too flashy for my guy. So purple it was.

Looking like the crazy plant lady that I am

Apparently it's weird to walk around with a plant, because I got so many stares. Honestly I don't get why it's weird, how else would you get a plant home from the store. Sure it's a bit weird to bring it on the train. Haha I guess I imported it!

It was almost summer like weather, but I was still surprised to be greeted by G in shorts and no jacket. He loved the plant, which was awesome because I was still a little worried that he wouldn't. On the way to his place we found a little shop that sold pots and such. He figured that he'd might as well get one. So now he was the weird looking one; walking around with a potted plant.

I realised soon after that that I hadn't eaten all day, and the hunger was creeping in on me.
G had been up since six, so he wanted to take a nap. But I demanded food! 😂
So we went to a flea market/ food market thing. It was tiny but nice. As we looked around the food options, I thought it was a little too pricy. So we went for my fav; pizza! His brother was making dinner later, so we decided to split one.
Now our differences are usually very easily manageable, but when it comes to choosing pizza, we came to a halt. The thing is, I like my pizzas cheesy or fresh, and I'm not a fan of extra pork on it. G is the opposite, he loves pork on his pizzas, pepperoni, salami and or bacon.
It took us a while to compromise ( to my benefit) we went for a mozzarella and pesto pizza with fresh salad.
It was to die for! He didn't love it but he thought it was alright.

He doesn't get the taking pictures thing 😂

Afterwards we went to the park to chill for a bit. I tried to make him a flower crown but he refused to wear it. I did put it on him when he wasn't paying attention, though. Haha he wore it for like twenty minutes before it fell off! I'm such a nice girlfriend. We sat there for a while before we had to head back to his apartment.
Apparently Yoko had changed her mind again, and she was coming over to sign the contract.
She seems sweet, and I think it's for the best that G and his brother has a female flat mate. You know to bring in that female touch, because I feel like they kinda need it. 😂
Yeah I think it'll be a good setup.

See you soon xx

The Id controls in Denmark are finally history. I will no longer miss my train because of the "train bouncers" as I call them. I will no longer have to stand in line in the cold, hoping that I'll get on the train in time. I will no longer have to take the train to the airport, and then get off the train to get an other one.
Omg what if they start going at 10 min intervals instead of 20 min, like before!
Sure I still have to bring my passport because they're still checking in Sweden.
But I'm saving so so much time. It's almost like it was two years ago, super easy and fast to go back and forth between Cph to Malmö. I'm so excited! Yay! Now I might even be able to spend the night at G's even if I work the day after.

So my day started in G's new home. Maybe I'm weird but I was so excited that I was there during his first night and morning in the new apartment. When he was going to work, he said that I could stay if I wanted to. But I thought it would be better to go with him, because I wanted to and because I wasn't sure about the way to the metro.

Because of the stupid border controls, I missed two trains on my way back to Sweden. I'm so sick and tired of that bullshit! Now I could go on and on about those, but I'll save that for an other time.
The sun was shining bright today, so I thought it would be nice to go for a walk or something. I called my dad, but he didn't pick up. So I called my grandparents instead. They were already on a walk so we decided to go for pizzas later instead. My uncle tagged along as well. I'm sure that pizza is the reason I'll never get abs. 😂

Über photogenic...

See you soon xx
