Food festival in Skien, "Mersmak 2013"

Every year there is a food festival in Skien called "Mersmak". Directly translated means taste increasing. It's held outside in the centre of town, making this a open air and free festival to participate in. The maine focus of the event is to promote food diversity. It is also an arena for local volunteer  groups promote their activities and recruit new member. The first day of the festival the main target group are the local school and kindergartens. They are invited to take part in different activities specially tailored to that age group. Pål and I also take part in the food festival through the local Red Cross. Last year we were volunteering as "first responders". This year we wear responsible for promoting our annual raffle. 

Andres and Pablo volunteers from the Youth in Action program with me at the Latinos of Norway booth. 
 The view from the Red Cross bouth. There were several "mini consorts" throughout the day on the stage in the background. 

 Pål together with the Flying Flying Culinary Circus They had several events throughout the food festival. Targeting all age groups. It was really nice getting to know them. They are a group of very nice and talented chefs. 

There was also several different groups preforming street theatre.

Birthday Girl and family time

So another year had past and another birthday celebration was here. 
Now I personally never had any issues when it came to telling people my age. It is what it is! It might also help living in a country where the average first time birth age for women in the capital is 34. 
I have also checked of a couple of spots on the big check list called life.
I'm married (11years :-) to my hubby Pål. 
We are home owners.
I have a great job.
And my dream of owning cats has come true ;-) 
maybe thats just on my check list. 
We have traveled to some nice places. 
So all in all life is doing med pretty good here in Norway. 

Receiving gifts is also a bonus. 
Thank you Mannen Min Super Sexy, Pål!

My brother Stian came down from Bærum, that was awesome. My sister Stine also had the time to drop by. 

One thing Norway is famous for is random naked statues. So we couldn't pass on this snazzy looking lady. In the background is the restaurant we eat out at, Strøm. The review? Well it wasn't all that! May or may not go back. 

I wish I could say that we are goofing around, but unfortunately thats how we actually look like when we are trying to pose for family photos.

Nail Polish

Nye eksperimenter i hverdagen.
Kjenner at dette lett kan bli avhengende. :-)
Har også tatt meg tid til å lage prøver på de fargene jeg har. Dette har med at fargen som er på flasken ofte blir en smule andeldes på neglen.

Slik gikk jeg fram
Essie all in one base.
Sally Hansen Diamond Strength no chip color, Hollywood Red.
Essie picket fence til prikkene.
OPI RapiDry TopCoat

Tips #1 Tolmodighet. For jeg var alt for kjapp med å ta på topp lakken og da smurte jeg prikkene utover.
