Easter Weekend ♥

Hey lovelies!

How's your weekend going? ♥

I'm sorry for not getting back to you earlier, but things have been going on a lot lately. I heard back from my doctor a couple of days ago and as I figured, nothing serious is going on with me. However, I may have to switch my diet fully to a gluten free one within couple of months because apparently, my body can't handle wheat and such that well. No biggie, but surely something I need to get used to. Also, we're having a bit of mourning time here as one of my fiance's relatives passed away today.

So you probably get why I've taken some me-time involuntarily. It's not all bad, though. Like I mentioned, I got a package I can't wait to post about to you, I heard about a great collab chance this morning, the weather has been amazing and overall, life is pretty good. And I finally got the Easter photos up and ready for you. Really early and all, I know. But here's what our Easter weekend looked like in photos:

A lovely punch my mom made. It tasted like peach, and I will definitely make this for a summer evening in with friends. This was kind of a "welcome and happy Easter" drink when we arrived there on Friday.

Loads and loads of food!

...and some more food, as we went out to eat with friends the next day. That chicken was absolutely amazing! ♥

And with the same friends, we hung out at my friend's parents' house, and got to meet our friends' new puppy. Isn't she just too precious? Kinda makes my puppy fever so much worse. And she was so playful and kind little thing. Love her to bits.

We spent some time engaging into a Finnish game called Mölkky, which is a pretty simple and fun throwing game that so many Finns play in the summer. Not all, but still. To learn something about it, see the Wikipedia page here.

Some very exciting Mölkky action. Yeah, I get that it might seem boring. I assure you, it's not.

Of course, a warm day like that isn't complete without some grilling, so my friend was a lovely hostess and cooked us.

...ans someone totally wanted to be part of that party.

On our way back to my parents', we stopped to take some outfit pictures by the lake.

On Sunday, we headed to my cousin's and took her and her man out to eat some pizza. But the airhead that I am, I forgot to take picture of one of the largest and most delicious pizzas I've tasted so far. And yet I had taken this picture of my man pouring coke to all of us. No logic available, apparently.

After pizza, we decided it would be fun to spend some time out on the balcony, playing girls vs. boys some board game. And the losing team would have to face:

Beer. I know this may not sound like a punishment, but take my word for it, with this particular product, it actually is that. What beer would be so bad? Well, let me tell you.

Rainbow non-alcoholic beer. I've tasted all sorts of things in my life but there's probably not a drink I like less than this. It doesn't even resemble the taste of a proper beer, but rather it seems like a weird combo of sweaty socks, metal and not so fresh water. I'm sorry if the makers are reading this, but seriously, what is up with that recipe?

Naturally my rant is here because my cousin and I lost to the boys and had to both finish half of that can of "beer". Not a fun task, but we delivered.

Another little doggy I got to play with. This one is so adorably silly I can't even handle it! And the cuteness is overwhelming as well. ♥

On Monday, we hung out with my parents before heading home. So after breakfast, we headed to a walk. Now, you can enjoy some snapshots of my childhood home village.

Lastly, we took my grandma out to eat some food. It was so lovely to meet her after such a while, I really seeing her. And look at the food:

Yeah, get-togethers totally mean lots and lots of food (I didn't even photo a half of it) and the best company. I'm sure you all agree with me.

So this was bit of a long one - mostly pictures though, so hopefully you made it this far, haha. Anyway, I do try to get on board with a bit more postings per week, with little ones here and there and like three or four bigger ones (don't worry, not as numbingly long as this one) but let's see how that works out for us.

Hope you guys enjoyed this one and are having a great weekend. I'll see you all tomorrow, but now I need to go catch some sleep!

Have a fabulous day ♥
