I’ve been out of touch the last couple of weeks, so what on earth have I been up to?
Well, let me tell you. It’s been really, really busy, and fun 🙂
September this year, I’m turning 50 years young 😉
I figured a 50 year birthday is worth celebrating properly!
On my actual birthday I’ll be in Houston, celebrating with a bunch of friends and loads and loads of margaritas 😉
But I decided I needed to have a Norway celebration as well! So last weekend I threw a PARTY, with friends and family at this end of the world. Woohoo!!!
The plan was for an outdoor grill party, but the weather gods for some reason just wanted to throw rain at us, so it turned out to be an indoor grill party. Good thing it was a smallish group with only about 20 people, since my house ain’t that big 😉 I do however, feel sorry for the grill-chef that had to spend all her time outside gilling in the rain (I did fix a temporary roof over her, but still…).
Even if it was a small group it was a wonderful mix of family and friends. Mum and brother from UK, stepbrother and girlfriend from Bergen, friends I haven’t seen in like forever, mixed with friends I see all the time. It was a great opportunity for all of us to catch up.
It was a party filled with fun and loads and loads of laughed, I don’t think I have laughed that much in a long time (yes, tears rolling). I love throwing parties like that 🙂
Definitely worth a repeat. Now if I could just find an excuse to throw another one… 😉
