KidSpot Top 50 Bloggers - Party On Down


It was with great anticipation that I bundled myself into the car on Wednesday afternoon and set of to meet the attractive bunch of broads pictured above. Yet since having children cripple my social life I tend to overcompensate every time I'm let out on a leave pass. Last night was no exception. ..... Emily form The Beetle Shack in OVERDRIVE! I just can't help it. I get SO excited to be out, wearing heels and makeup and having real adult conversations that aren't even about babies. I put my foot in my mouth once or twice but for the most part  had so much fun chatting with FAMOUS bloggers (hello edenlad- i kinda like, umm, love you) and checking our the new Ford Territory. 

 I feel truly honoured to have been included in the Kid Spot Top 50 Bloggers and have had the opportunity to rub shoulders with some of the women who inspired me to blog in the first place.

 If you would like to go into the draw to win $5000 and possibly provide me with the opportunity to attend the BlogHer conference in New York (which would make me all kids of crazy happy) you can head over here and vote for The Beetle Shack.
