Coffee with Blog Nerds (and others)


Don't you love meeting famous people? Last night a bunch of Auckland bloggers got to meet the face behind Kiwi Mummy Blogs... coffee with FaerySarah {so enjoyed meeting her... she's great company}

Bloggy coffee was organised by Gail, partly in honour of my birthday (It's tomorrow. I like chocolate. Hint hint). In the end only six of us, but fun, aye girls?

{Penny and Mon couldn't make it at the last minute... and Sammy? Did you get all our messages?}


Life of the party award goes to my friend Linda.
She's not actually a blogger, but she is a blog reader - one of those magical creatures who actually reads blogs for fun. And she is so much fun. Don't you agree girls? We all think that if she started her own blog it would be "a hoot!". Funny gal that one. A blog by her would be a masterpiece of of hilarity.


Gorgeous Gift award goes to my friend Lyns. She brought me flowers. Aren't they pretty?? Thankyou Lyns! {Faery Sarah was trying to figure out which blog Lyns belonged to, and then it clicked... "Oh Swine Flu Lyns!"}

Coolness Blogger Award goes to Gail. Of course. Who else? My fun friend shakes her head at me and Faery Sarah as we talk about stats and google analytics. Gail blogs for fun. She is amazing like that.

L to R: Gail, Faery Sarah, Meg and Me (Lyns had already left) and Linda is holding the camera

Queen of the Blog Nerds really should be awarded to Faery Sarah. Really. But when she pointed her finger at me and said, "YOU use google analytics don't you???!!" I had to hang my head in shame and admit that, yes, I do. The fun-bloggers turned to each and asked with a shrug, "What's google analytics?" Ahhh the days of innocence and sunbeams. Long may it last.

Which brings me to Meg. Who has to be awarded the "Please don't stop blogging when your youngest kid goes to school next year" award *Sigh*
It's not that we won't still be Real Life friends. But I love that we get to connect in cyberspace too. Especially since our paths don't cross as often naturally now that our kids aren't in kindy together. (Plus Meg has so many great parenting ideas and she takes such pretty pictures. I love her blog!)

They made me pose in front of these lights. And with a lion. I didn't want to but they said I had to cos it was my birthday.

Faery Sarah asked me to email her the photos... But not these ones of me. After making me pose she doesn't want the photos. I said, that's OK *sniff*  I don't really want them either.  (LOL)

Ahhh it was fun. We bloggers really are a unique bunch. So nice to hang out with people who don't look at me funny when I photograph the light fittings. And my coffee. And their Cake.

Have you had bloggy coffee lately?? Don't forget to link up on our bloggy friends linky :)

And I laughed about your comment re photographing the light fittings...as I um..may have um...photographed the wallpaper in the ladies at Lone Star Petone recently since I thought it was that cool.
