LA Ladies Who Blog
Last week I was lucky enough to get to attend a cocktail party for "LA Ladies Who Blog". Of course, the party was for "real" bloggers with thousands and thousands of readers but I snuck on the guest list because I knew the host. Oh yeah, she's my sister. Most of the woman write about fashion or cooking or lifestyle so there weren't many mommy bloggers. Which I guess was good news because that meant Jack was the hit of the party. The photo above and all of the photos in this post were taken by one of the amazing photographers at the party. (Here's his website). It turns out that Jack is pretty photogenic. I mean, with those cheeks, how could you not be?
We had a great time at the party and my sister did a fantastic job of hosting all the ladies. Here she is next to her garden which happens to be overflowing with great tasting vegetables.
She also put together a gift bag that we got to take home with amazing free goodies. Companies reached out to her and wanted to donate their stuff to all of these blogging ladies so she happily obliged. I certainly won't detail every single goodie but I have to say that I loved this popcorn if you ever want to send any as a gift. And I'm not generally a fan of baklava (a Turkish dessert pastry) but this was the best baklava I've ever had in my entire life. The butterscotch flavor was to die for.
You can read more about the party over at my sister's site. And, of course, a few more pictures of Jack.
