Whangarei Bloggers Unite!!!

By PaisleyJade - Tuesday, February 15, 2011

Take a group of eight bloggers who all live in the same city, but haven't all met each other before and what do you get?  You get the coolest morning ever!!! 

The awesome Jacksta-B decided it was about time some of us Whangarei bloggers actually met face to face, so organised a morning tea at the Town Basin.  It was great to get to know each other (as well as unashamedly take photos of each other... something only bloggers understand).

You girls are awesome and  I can't wait to do this again some time soon.

Our group consisted of Jackie from Jacksta-B,  Leonie from Kiwi At Heart, Tracy from Inside the Scrapheap, Neetz from Bassett blurbs and Banter, Liz from She exceeds Rubies, Simone from Sima-J, Renette from The South African Kiwi and me!

When you hang out with blogging buddies you...

Take photos (of course)...

Laugh and chat...

Ohhh and aaahhhh over brand new babies...

Your kids get on like a house on fire straight away (as kids do)...

Ask the nice waitress to take group photos for you (and pray she doesn't get fired for taking photos of crazy blogging ladies on her first day of work!!)!

You learn which of the bloggers are messy drinkers (not mentioning any names... but we all know who that was don't we girls!)...

Have random people coming up to you while your there saying, "Hey, you're PaisleyJade... I read your blog" - only to find out that you actually read their blog too!!  This person was Cassandra - Lisa's sister... and guess what!?!  Lisa (Everything by Twos) was on the phone, so a few of  us got to have a chat to her (I'm on the phone to her in the pic below while posing with her sis Cassandra!).

 What an awesome time - can't wait to do it again girls!! xoxox

Other's take on the day here: Jackie, Tracy, Neetz, Leonie, Renette
