What Happens When Toronto Bloggers Get Together





It was another fab night out for Toronto mama bloggers. Like last time, the conversation flowed as easily as the gin. I met the ladies at 6 pm and didn't roll in the door until 3 am (it's been a long time since I've done that).

One of the conversations we had was how most bloggers are, in person, exactly as you imagine them to be. That sure is true of our TO Mamas: Jana is so cool (and has gorgeous hair by the way); Nadine is hilarious and outspoken; all of the women are intelligent, articulate, and fun (sorry for not linking everyone up, but I'm tired and a little hungover and I need to finish this in time to squeeze in a nap before Cakes wakes up).

Another conversation we had was about why we all started blogging. My motivation was to practice writing, with faint hope I might meet a like-minded woman or two. I never dreamt I'd meet twelve.

Many thanks to Tania and Catherine for organizing the event. Thanks to the super-cool 10 Spot:

For those who missed this one--we're doing it again soon. NO EXCUSES! Hope to meet you soon.

Yup - I hear you on that hangover thang. So much fun, too many links to create, but my nails never looked so great. So glad we got to meet up in person and I can't wait until the next time.

Ugh, I am feeling the pain right with you, honey! Thankfully misterpie was gracious and took over for a few hours and let me sleep. Good to see you and the others again, and as I've said ot a few people now, once I get my act together in our soon-to-be-acquired main floor, I am having an afternoon barbeque avec kids.

Hey it was so great to meet you.
I'm not sure what amazes me more - that I managed to stay up so late or how everyone was even more fun than I thought they would be.
I've been at the in-laws all day and was dying to see what got posted.
