♥ Weekend Bliss ♥

By PaisleyJade - Monday, January 31, 2011

Wow - what a weekend!  Lots of fun and exciting things have been crammed into this extra long three day weekend, including a big cyclone which caused quite a bit of damage and flooding in our area, an amazing bush adventure with the family (more about it tomorrow)... but best of all, guess who came to visit us for dinner over the weekend...

Blogging Buddies!!

We had the most coolest time as bloggers united once again (see here and here for last time). Simone from Greatfun4kids, Gail from Delightfully Diva-ish! and my good friend Jackie from Jacksta-B (along with our husbands, kids and dogs) got together for a BBQ at our house, after plans to meet at the beach were thwarted thanks to Cyclone Wilma's fury.

It was fun, busy, loud and so good to be able to meet up again.  The kids got on great, the dogs didn't (Boo wasn't a very friendly hostess) and us blogging girls got to have a bit of a natter here and there.

It's a strange experience to meet up with people you know so well yet haven't met much in real life. The strange world of blogging friendships... I love it!!  Thanks you guys for a great night ♥ Simone's take on the weekend here.

Here's hoping you had a wonderful weekend too.
