Gene donor… 7. May 2018

I went and donated blood for the Institute of Genomics, so scientist can map and study my genes. If I leave nothing else behind in my life, at least I’ve helped science in a small way. It will be also interesting to get some feedback about my genes one day.

In the evening it was Ebe’s birthday party that we attended.

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 😀

Tõid metsa puid… 23. February 2018

 Cocoa pudding, coffee, a cheese roll and maple syrup-pecan pastry.

 A tomato-mozarella bun and a rye bread beetroot burger.

 Fresh juice made of avocado, apples, cucumber, spinach and pear.

 Chicken pasta with sour cream.

I got accused of “bringing wood to the forest” xD Meaning I brought along some pastry to a bakery xD

Coffee grinder… 4. October 2017

 Coffee, a pear and a nectarine

 A quark pastry

 A different style of pasta with squid, grated cheese and some baby tomatoes

 A pancake stuffed with banana slices and drizzled with honey

 A glass of red wine after work. It was a lame wine, the taste of it disappeared in your mouth, so it felt you were simply drinking something… meh.

 Vegetable stew with smoked lamb and some sour cream on top

We went and bought a nice coffee grinder with my boyfriend after we both got off work. It was an early birthday present for my boyfriend that is actually kind of for the both of us :p The grinder will take a bit of getting used to and we will have to figure out the fineness of the grind that is suitable for our coffee machine. The first attempt was with a recommended setting for filter coffee and it wasn’t good at all xD I can’t wait to buy all the amazing artisan roasted beans tho! First I’ll get the Autumn blend from Haba when pay day arrives this month and I think they are going to ship my beans from Dodger Coffee Co soon as well 😀 So excited for coffee!
