Five for Fr....aturday!

I have not been a very good blogger, yet again.

However, I am making it my goal to be a better blogger - starting this month! What better way to start then by joining up with Doodle Bugs Teaching?!
I'm going to have to start off by apologising if you have already visited Mrs Poultney's Ponderings, Teachable Moments and From the Pond but I just have to share my fave five moments from our little mini Aussie blog meet up, too!
I have been super lucky to have connected with some amazing Australian bloggers over the past 2 years and last weekend I FINALLY got to meet up with some of them. I travelled all the way from Brisbane to Sydney to meet with six of my oldest bloggy friends.
We went for a stroll along Darling Harbour in Sydney looking for a place to eat, only to be greeted by a beautiful fireworks display. We can only assume it was for us to celebrate our meet up! although there may have also been some coincidental cultural festivities occurring at the same time...
I took this the next day but this is where we had dinner. I had THE BEST spinach and ricotta ravioli I have EVER had in my life. It was so fresh and delicious. If you are ever in Darling Harbour, Sydney you MUST go here!
I felt super spoilt by the girls!
Brooke from Teachable Moments made us all cute lanyards using gifts from GoNoodle, Mel at From the Pond wrapped up chocolate for us using her adorable graphics and Tania from Mrs Poultney's Ponderings prepared a super fun game for us all to play!
I got to see some great Sydney icons! The Sydney Opera House, The Sydney Harbour Bridge, Darling Harbour and Luna Park!!!

It was such a great trip! I can't wait until the next one where I can hopefully meet up with even more of my Aussie blogger friends!


  1. How good was that dinner! Yours did look yummy! It was wonderful to meet you Shanyn, you are such a laugh - It was pretty crazy that the fireworks started as soon as we walked along! xx

  2. Great post Shanyn! I had such a blast on our meet up and I wish we all lived in the same place :) I miss you guys!
