I'm a Blogger???

I think I might actually be a Blogger! Why do I think this? On Saturday night I attended my first ever Blogger get together! To celebrate Christmas!

I was sooo nervous! Like Annaleis from Teapots and Tractors said "It's like going on a blind date!" - and it was! Totally. 

So off I went with my Secret Santa present, chilled BYO bottle of wine, my glam on and my nerves to Elies Tent, a local Lebanese restaurant, ready to meet some people I'd only ever read their blogs and  shared some tweets and facebook comments with.

I felt a little bit like a fraud being surrounded by so many awesome WA bloggers!!

Wines to calm my nerves were needed.

I had a GREAT night!!

There was food. Yummy food.

There was belly dancing. With a sword!!

There were laughs.

*This would be where I should insert the photo of Yvette and Annalies belly dancing!! But I won't ;)*

Then there were presents!!!!

Jules from The Bumpiest Path gave us the cutest little Christmas candles! I don't want to put a match to it!

My Secret Santa gift was for Yvette from Little Bento Blog.

Note to self - next time go with your first hunch and just buy her the damn Ninja cookie cutters!!

This is the present that I received.

A scarf!!! I love it!!

A big thanks to Taryn from This is Taryn for my gorgeous scarf! I love scarves and I love this colour!!

I had the pleasure of sitting next to Annalies and Yvette as well as Rhonda from Silly Mummy, Chantel from Bossy Mummy and Jayne from Writing Without Pay

So many others that I didn't get the chance to chat more to - Next time for sure!

I had a blast!!

At the end of the night I even scored a bottle of Pinot Noir Chardonnary from Thorn-Clarke Wines.

Cant wait to crack it open and celebrate the fact that maybe I really am. a. blogger??

Who knew!

If you've been following me on facebook you may or may not know that I have registered for a 220km bike ride  for the Perth Ride to Conquer Cancer in 2013. This is a cause close to my heart as I have lost some very special people to this horrible disease. As part of my entry I need to fund raise a minimum of $2500 to take part in the actual ride. I really hate asking for donations but I've been told that it's the only way! Do you have a spare $2? Every little bit helps. All money raised will go directly to support cancer patients and their families and all donations $2 and over are tax deductible. Thank you!!


  1. Blogger events are so much fun! Yay to being a blogger!

  2. Yay for being a blogger!!! I still can't wait to go to my first blogger event

  3. That sounds like such a good night! I am very jealous! So far I have not been able to make any bloggy events because of previous commitments so I am yet to pop that cherry but I can't wait until I can!

  4. Man, I wish I could go to an event. The Tassie ones never get off the ground!

  5. Looks like an awesome night! Love that feeling of knowing you're one of the crowd :)


Go on, leave me a comment. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy! {I've removed "Anonymous Users" as I was getting waaaaaay too much stupid spammy comments!}
