Kiwi Blogger Shoutout!

I’d like to say a big thank you to Penny of dressesandme, Michelle from Every Stitch I Make and Sandra from Sewist Stitch for nominating my blog for the Super Sweet Blogger Award, thank you ladies, I am really flattered! xx

Ohh yummy, cupcakes!

I’m going to answer the questions below but then I am going to do something different and give a little shout out to all the amazing Kiwi bloggers I have recently discovered.

You are all super talented and I love being a part of this community, locally and internationally.

Keep it up ladies, you are the best!

The 5 Super Sweet Questions

  1. Cookies or Cake? Cookies are great as an everyday treat but when I can I’d rather cake! 🙂
  2. Chocolate or Vanilla?  What is this thing called vanilla you speak of? Chocolate. Every. Time.
  3. Favorite Sweet Treat?  Oh dear, a hard decision, there are so many but I think it has to be Pavlova. Very Kiwi right? But for me Pavlova is a treat that comes out at Christmas time and I associate Christmas with family which is crazy and loud and ridiculous but always fun times.
  4. When Do You Crave Sweet Things The Most? Well since we are talking about it RIGHT NOW! Haha, actually I do not have a strong sweet tooth but when I crave, I crave!
  5. Sweet Nickname?  That would be telling 😉

It’s been a while since we had a gratuitous Harri picture hasn’t it?

She is 3.5 months old now and a huge, ok, not really, still a small 1.35kgs (7.7lbs).

Still, she was only 600gms (1.3lbs) when we bought her home at 7 weeks, my little cutie, not so runty now!

Nerdy Husband worked from home the day after “The Big Wellington Storm of 2013” and Harri found something made of warm to snuggle on!

She looks like she is mid-sentence, what do you think she is saying? 🙂

  1. Oh wow what an amazing list. Thanks for pulling it together so we can check everyone out.

    On the vanilla and chocolate front – have you tried both together? Chocolate brownie with extra vanilla is divine.

  2. Hi Mel, I’m keen to come along to a WSBN coffee date, please add me to the invitation list 🙂 Thanks so much for the shout-out and the list of NZ bloggers – I’m off to read who else is making jeans and jackets instead of togs!

  3. Congrats on your award and thanks for the list of bloggers. I have not heard of some of them and have some new blogs to follow! GREAT pic of Harri, she looks as if she’s yelling at you to get off the computer.

  4. oh thanks so much for the lovely shout out. I’m looking forward to having a good look through some of the ones I haven’t seen before. 😮 and I’m with you vanilla??? what’s that?

I love comments so please feel free to say "hi" xx
