Helsinki, -1 degree

One of my friends called today a polar expedition - and that it truly was! Close by to Helsinki airport an incredible 76 cm of snow was counted this evening!! My day was spent by struggling through snow..

..heading to my mom's to celebrate Shrove Sunday! Traditionally Shrove Sunday and especially Shrove Tuesday is celebrated by enjoying lovely Shrove buns; with either jam or almond paste. Both have whipped cream in the middle, but the ones with jam have powdered sugar on top whereas the ones with almond paste have almonds. My favorites are the ones with jam, but I think this is a matter that divides the Finnish people in half. Can't you just taste them through these pictures?


Delicious!

Later on today I challenged the weather once again and headed to my boyfriend's grandmother's 90th birthday party! Yeah, hurrah for her! What a cute old lady that grandmother!

Hope your weekend has been good? What have you been up to?
