i like norwegians.

did you know my husband is half norwegian? yes, yes, it's true. his father was born & raised in norway and although he lives in the united states now, is still a proud norwegian citizen.

g even lived in norway as a little man & used to speak norwegian fluently until he moved back to the states and had to quickly re-learn english in order to start school.

i'm convinced no one loves the olympics quite like a norwegian as g hasn't missed a single event since the games started (i would be willing to bet money that his father hasn't either). and i can't even tell you how many frantic text messages & calls i've received to "record this!" or "make sure this event doesn't get deleted!"

frantic, i tell you.

but, it's been fun & i can't complain. all this watching & cheering on team norway has somehow lead to me develop a little crush on petter northug. i maybe made g rewind a few of his interviews/events/gold medal ceremonies a few too many times.

i can't help it if i have a thing for nowegian boys!

ps. did you know he's only 24?

  1. It's cute that he gets so excited about the Olympics. Dan is the same way, but about the USA. lol. I have a MAD crush on Michael Phelps, and I know that he's not in the winter Olympics, but I totally understand.
