The Number 23!




Yesterday was a great way to ring in my 23rd birthday! I got the Moods of Norway dress that I wanted, but unfortunately it was too big! They were cool enough to send me a new dress, in my size - but in a navy colour that isn't even out in stores until this fall. I have zero idea what it looks like, but I am pretty pumped to be the first to own it! :)

I had a wonderful 3-course meal at Bølgen & Moi. They were awesome in contacting us back about my gluten allergy and saying they don't use any flour in their dishes. I was super stoked to eat EVERYTHING at a restaurant for once.

We had this wonderful mussel soup (waiting to satisfy my taste buds, post-salad, right) for starters. I didn't actually eat the mussel themselves, as they remind me too much of the dancing mussels in "Alice Through the Looking Glass" (see them doing a song and dance below).

It was a nice spicy frothy soup that I could have taken in a Starbucks Venti cup to go. So good!

We also had a delicious chicken for the main dish and some cinnamon penna cotta later - with green tea of course!

The restaurant is housed in the same building as the Norwegian Oil Museum here in town. I can't wait to go back and try something new (that Caesar Salad better watch out!).

They have a great summer menu (which is what we had)! It's a another great place to have Gluten-Free dining, allowing us food-intolerant to venture off the appetizer menu once in a while. :)

Bon appétit!

Oh - I must thank my cousin Cait for the MSN birthday graffiti at the top of this post :)

A cool candid shot, while walking through the museum to get to the restaurant.
