My 1st Grocery Shopping Trip in Norway

We grabbed lunch at McDonald's and after spending roughly $40 US on that lunch it was time to go to the grocery store for the first time.  It was a quick trip to a small store, it turns out stores in Norway actually close on Sunday. We want to be able to eat dinner at home tonight.  I got pasta, sauce, ground turkey (I think it is turkey, it is some kind of ground meat), broccoli, bread, hot dogs, chips, apples, bananas, cereal, jelly, milk, apple juice and orange juice.  I spent about NOK325 or just over $50 US.  
I also found out that you need to bring your own bags to the grocery store.  They ask you if you want bags, but they don't bag your groceries for you.  
I am curious to see how things go at a bigger grocery store when I have a little more time.
This is our rental car, it is a Nissan, kind of like a Murano.  We can fit 2 car seats in the back seat and Addie sits in the third row.  It is also a 6 speed manual which is lots of fun on all of the little roads and round abouts that we have been on.  

This is our house!  We got the keys today and we are planning on staying there tonight.  I have more pictures that I am putting on facebook right now and then I will do another more in depth post on the house when we are a little more settled.   I will say that this house is amazing!  It is perfect for our family and I am so glad that we decided to go with a furnished house.  I feel like we will be able to get settled much sooner.  

So far we have had a few stressful moments, but we are doing well.  We are having fun too!


  1. LOVING all the pics and stories so far! I'm so impressed that you haven't seemed to miss a beat!!! Thanks for sharing everything!

    1. Thanks Jen, I have definitely faltered a few times, but we are pushing through. I know we look like the crazy American family right now, but I am okay with that.
