We got married!… 28. March 2018

Sorry for being absent for a while, but life got busy and then I wasn’t at home for a long period of time. My boyfriend of 8 years and I got married on our anniversary 😀

 Quick morning breakfast was rice and miso soup.

After I picked up our wedding cake and boyfriend went and got me a bouquet of flowers, we headed to the cornily nicknamed Happiness Palace to get married. It was just the two of us as it’s how we wanted to do it. It was our anniversary which has always been a private event for us.

Before the ceremony we had a photographer take some photos for us at the waiting room:

 Me and my love.

 ♥

 I loved the colour of the roses so much.

 😀

After the photography session, we had a short meeting with our wedding officiator about the proceedings. Apparently a simple ceremony is customary for everyone even if you just are there to sign the papers :p We agreed on a few sweet words and then for the marriage contract to be read to us as the ceremony proceedings.

A sweet touch that we added was that we brought our own music for the ceremony (because apparently if you didn’t you would get Beatles on a pan flute xD). We picked this song – Dir en grey “Ain’t afraid to die” – and it gave us many a giggle when it started playing in the ceremony room:

 Feeling giddy.

 I was so nervous I hardly remember what was said to us during the ceremony xD

 Mrs. and Mr. Paas 😀

 ♥

After the ceremony we went to a restaurant called Mimosa to have lunch.

 Kali and a mimosa.

 Snack selection – hummus, smoked fish mousse, two-fish cheviche, beef tartar, cheese. All of this was super delicious.

 Hubby ate their daily special (cutlets and vegetable gratin) and I had a green salad with fried mushrooms, crispy carrot and an oven-baked tomato sauce which was also very tasty.

After lunch we drove to Laulasmaa Spa for a day of bathing and relaxation. First we started by eating some of our wedding cake at our hotel room:

 Raspberry-cream cheese brownie cake from Killuke Kooki.

 There was also a fruit and chocolate platter waiting for us in our room 😀

Anyhow, then I got a foot procedure and afterwards there was a massage session for the both of us. All super relaxing. Later we enjoyed the rest of the spa- bubble baths, an onsen, salt sauna and steam sauna etc.

 Our day ended with a three-course meal in their local restaurant called Wicca. Hubby’s mocktail and my cocktail.

 This was a greeting appetizer Baltic herring. Sadly, it wasn’t very good, but mostly because I don’t enjoy this type of fish very much.

 Main appetizer- slow-cooked beef liver, spicy plum jam, pickled red onion, sea-buckthorn meringue and rhubarb meringue. The liver was oh so tender and lovely.

 Main course- potato and leek croquettes, mushroom cream and wild mushrooms. This was delicious, albeit the croquettes being a bit too oily for my liking.

 Dessert was coffee and an ice-cold cream cheesecake on raspberry cookie with raspberry sauce. Super yummy. Indrek had a crumbly pastry basket with vanilla cream and currant compote.

It was a lovely and a memorable day 😀

Hanging with friends… 10. March 2018

 Chickpea curry with sour cream, nettle rye bread with butter and ham, a cheese roll and a cup of coffee.

 A vanilla kohuke and coconut chocolate.

 Minced meat pastries and cheese rolls at Kadi’s place.

 Grapes, juice, beer, rye bread crisps, tiny Tosca cakes…

 Chinese chop suey and fried bread from Kathmandu Hill

 I had a hot and sour chicken soup, boyfriend had a chicken wonton soup.

Vegan experiments at work… 7. March 2018

 Vegan cheese roll. It tasted like bread with mayo, so not so sure about this.

 Chicken katsudon from Washoku Story.

 Some kiwifruit.

 Pelmeni with sour cream.

 Coffee and kit-kats I shared with my boyfriend. One of the matcha ones was super potent and bitter. It was cool in it’s own way, but I am not completely sure I liked it xD I enjoyed the mild matcha one better. Starwberry and sweet potato ones were kind of meh to me… The black tea one was okay and the tiny berry and almond one was the best one of the bunch.
