My Man & I: Attending the Officer Ball

0 Permalink

Happy Tuesday! We had such an amazing weekend and I wanted to share some insights with you. On Saturday the day started off a little hectic – we had to clean up the apartment a bit, Samuel went to the hairdresser, I got extra ready (shaving, peeling, creaming, etc.) and walking the dogs. In the late afternoon we brought both dogs to my parents – whom thankfully were in Zurich and agreed to dog-sit Saturday to Sunday. Then we stopped by the city for a drink – because you know, there’s little better than an apero in the afternoon ;) and then back home again to get ready. Saturday night was the officer ball. Swiss military officers with certain ranks were invited to The Dolder Grand in Zurich for a lovely evening with foods and for dancing.

I wore the black dress I had ordered some time ago from Zalando – such a good catch! Unfortunately I cannot find the dress online anymore, though I’m sure its available somewhere. Let me know if anyone is interested and I’ll make sure to find a link!

I love this picture because I look oh-so-skinny!

We stayed until the end of the officer ball until around 2am. The next day we seriously noticed our age. I am not as fit anymore and I always dread staying up too long! It feels like my body needs days and days to re-generate!

Sunday we picked up the dogs from my parents and took them out to a big field where the dogs could run freely and enjoy themselves with other dogs. It was so fun seeing them have fun and bathe in the river! Afterwards we had a lovely super-late lunch at Fork & Bottle – their pulled beef burger is to die for! But also the truffled fries. Oh, and the ribs. They are so so good, too! I also love the fact that its a huge beer garden, one that is dog friendly, and you can sit outside and enjoy the surrounding nature. I think we stayed a good 3,5-4 hours! It really was lovely.
