Thank God It’s Friday

Friday is my favorite day of the week because it is not only the last day of week but also Friday motivates me to work harder. I think it is because of the thought that it’s weekend afterwards or maybe it’s my body system’s way of saying that I did great and I deserve a reward.
Anyway, after my work today, my hunny and I went to Kvadrat to eat lunch. I didn’t have the chance to eat properly this morning because I had to go to work.
We ate at Cantina Mexicana Restaurant . (You’ve probably guessed what kind of food they’re serving!) I usually order their chicken burritos but today they have new food in the menu!
Tada!

 
I ordered spareribs with boat potatoes, corn and barbeque sauce.


Hamburger platter for my hunny.

After eating lunch, we went to Ark. We found out that there’s a sale there (hurray!). 

 Most of the English pocket books here are Stephen King’s. 🙂


 Classic books. I still love them!

 
The children books section
Then I bought some pampering stuff for myself at Vita
A cucumber flavored peeling mask. It is really good for the skin. My skin become very soft and smooth after ten minutes! Really worth the money!
Body cream for my very dry skin. 
Our plan today actually is to go to the town and go bar hopping but I’m exhausted and I want to give time to myself because I’ve been working a lot lately. 🙂 I guess I’m not the tough girl in the family anymore.
How about you? What is your favorite day of the week and why?

One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Treasure

Fretex is Norway’s biggest shop and the major contributor of recycling which sells used stuff like clothes, furniture and etc. for a very low price. it is owned by Frelsesarmeen (The Norwegian Salvation Army). It is like a garage sale except that Fretex has its own shop. They do not just sell used things, they accept your old stuff as well, as long as it is still in a good condition.

Last Saturday, my bf and I went to Fretex with mom and my cousin. We took them there because they were looking for semi antique home decorations at very affordable prices. I couldn’t think of any other shops that sell antiques so we drove to Fretex Mariero and Sandnes.

 
My cousin browsing for some teacups


As usual he went to the book section!

 
These dolls gave me the creeps… I don’t know why..


Hva ser du her? traslated as What do you see here? This toddler book reminds me of my childhood days.


 Beautiful painting but it’s boring.

This was inside Fretex Mariero

 

This one’s at Fretex Sandnes


A classic figurine.

 
Lots of glass!

 

Another pair of dolls…

 
 This is the most beautiful doll in the shop but then it’s creepy!
By buying stuff from Fretex, you are not just helping Mother Earth but also the unemployed people.

Bråsteinvatnet

If you’re planning to rent a cottage or just sightseeing within Stavanger region with a mountain and lake view then this is the place for you. BrÃ¥steinvatnet is a half hour drive from Stavanger center and 3 minutes drive from Ã…lgÃ¥rd. It is easy to get there since its not so far from the express way (E39).
My bf and I went here yesterday after our short trip to Jernaldergården.

Here is the panoramic shot of Bråsteinvatnet:

 
Everything is just perfect! It’s heaven on earth!

It is also a perfect place to swim during the hot summer days.  Too bad I can’t swim!

City Mission’s (Bymisjonen) 20th Year

The City Mission in Stavanger celebrates its 20th year today. Honestly, I’ve never heard about this organization before till my friend invited us to go out with them today. My friends’ company  is sponsoring the grill event at St. Petri kirke (church). There were free grilled food (mmmm…!) 🙂 and not only that, there were free concerts too!

Getting Personal on Valentines Day

How’s your Valentines? I hope everyone had a great time. I did! Thanks to my dearest boyfriend. I can say that I’m the luckiest girl on earth because I have him in my life. He is so nice, talented, smart and not to forget that he’s really handsome and romantic!

This morning he made me breakfast, actually it’s nothing new since he makes it almost everyday to me when he gets time. That’s why I’m so in love with him. I feel so pampered with him. He always makes sure that I’m fine and happy.

We have been to Egon restaurant in Stavanger today and ate dinner there. I had beef entrecote and he had chicken and spareribs. The foods taste so good! No wonder that Egon is one of the best restaurant in Norway! I’ll definitely take my mom there soon.

Anyway, today is our monthsary too so its a double celebration today. 🙂 Love is definitely overflowing around us.
