Hello...my name is...Nunuza :)

This was the first thing I said to Sarah, the angelheaded hipster, when what I actually meant to say was Hi I'm Carlette and my blogs name is nunuza...

I attended my first ever blog meet up at Wolves Cafe on Wed eve this week. I found out about it from a friend of mine and was so game. Until I realised that I did not know or follow the blogs of the people who organised the event. Sherdamn that's when panic set in. What would I say/Would I talk to anyone/Do I take my camera with me/I'm not a serious blogger I just write about stuff so what if this event is meant for serious bloggers only....those were my thoughts! But all of that disappeared when I arrived and was told "here's a free glass of wine". Immediately I thought ahhh  I like these people! :) Wrote my name down on a list and started to mingle...

It really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. In fact, it was freaking fabulous!!!! I loved speaking to new people, I loved listening to their different stories about blogging, life, things, and now I'm going to love reading and following their blogs.

What's even better was that...I won a prize!!!BOOYAH!!! I didn't even hear my number being called and the girl next to me said hey that's you...number 29!! (I still have the label that had my number on it - nerd I know ;)) I was so freaking excited hahaha I'm still happy that I won a *canderel hamper*! I don't generally so canderel, but now I will!! I loved taking my box home and unpacking it..and taking pics of it! :) :) :)
