Last Sunday we had a rehearsal Fathers' Day and I made some buns for my hun. -Marika
So here it is, the main reason why I've been feeling so damn powerless sometimes and that's why it has been pretty quiet here on the blog too. We are having a baaaabyyyy! The due date is in April, same day as my own birthday, so it would be pretty fun if this one decides to be on time. It's still sometimes pretty hard to believe that this is happening, but my slowly growing belly is starting to make this hole thing way more real. The ultrasound pictures are from the beginning of October and we are having the next check up at the end of this month. Let's hope that little thingy feels like showing it's gender! -Marika
Even though the sun is shining, it's getting soooo cold!
For some reason the water of the sea has been unsually low. Here in Pori is a big beach area called Yyteri and in front of it is a small island, where it was possible to now walk. We went there last Sunday but were a bit too late, sea has already risen a bit, so we were not able to get there without getting our feet veeeery wet.
The long dunes of sand suddenly turns into a forest there in Yyteri and I think that's pretty weird, but at the same time pretty cool to have something so unique here in the nature of Finland.
Somehow we forgot to have a date day last month (in August we went to see Suicide Squad but camera died of course), but yesterday we had one again. It was Juhas' turn to decide what we do, but he was lacking a bit of imagination :D So, he took me shopping, made me stuffed oven baked potatoes and later we went to play pool. He won of course 2-1, but it was a fun day still, thanks babe! Oh, and it's been 3 years from the day we started to call ourself officially "us". 💗 -Marika
My bff visited us after a long time last weekend and she works at Lush in Helsinki, so she brought us some Lush stuff as an housewarming gift! "Breath of God"-perfume was something I asked her to bring, but "Sleepy"-body lotion and "The Sacred Truth"-face mask were a surprise :) It's been a long time since we got anything new from Lush and I would love to have more of them again, but unfortunately my favorite shower gels ("Flying Fox" and "Twilight") has not been no longer available. Luckily ""Sleepy" smells exactly like "Twilight" and I also have some "Twilight"-perfume left. There are so many new products so I need to go sniff them before I can make any decisions what to get! -Marika
