Breezy Days: Thorroblot 2012

Thorroblot 2012

What the heck is Thorroblot you may ask?
It's only the Winter Solstice Feast for Iceland.

I'm 1/8 Icelandic and my uncle is the President of the IAU.
{I got some connections!}
The Icelandic Association of Utah.

Who would have known that such a thing existed?!
Totally random.
Soooo putting together a group date for such an important event as Thorroblot would only make sense, right?
Last year Ryan & I set up one of my bridesmaids {Kim} on a blind date with one of his friends {Kyle} from back home in Montana. 

And the blind date was at Thorroblot 2011. 
Now it's starting to become a yearly tradition because of all the Icelandic presentations, costumes, the stuffed Puffins, and best of all...the RAFFLE.

Those poor old people didn't know what was coming.
We're all rambunctious, loud, and wayyyy into the raffle.
Screaming and yelling every time someones' number is close.

Here are some pictures of the stuffed puffin display, the Icelandic barbie doll, and an assortment of artifacts from Iceland!
We have Ben & Alexa up top, Hayley & Rob, then Ryan excited that he won the coveted Viking keychain in the raffle.
We are missing a picture of Kimberly & Kyle, but it was their one year dating-versary!

The whole crew then came back to the Rios pad and we had tons of chocolate fondue.
