NC Blogger Buzz Meet Up

We all know that I don't blog in real time, but I wanted to make sure that I blogged about the awesome NC Blogger Buzz event that Ashley and Angela co-hosted on the first of November.  We walked away with a great swag bags. I already blogged about my Thyme-is-Honey notepad, otherwise known as my morning date.
 Hello Darling - I love the printed pencil!

 The goods displayed.  I received several goodies from downtown Raleigh and neighboring businesses - The Cupcake Shoppe gave an excellent discount for sweets which R and I plan to take advantage of when we are out holiday shopping.

 And the earrings from Dress2KillCloset.
We met on a Friday evening at Vestique in Raleigh and spent some time shopping before we started on the itinerary.  We were able to get to know each other better and Chelsea spoke on time management.  My favorite part of the night was devouring sampling Hannah's party food.  Oh my those pecan tassies were addicting.
 After the blog event, R picked me up so we could go out for dinner.  Mason suggested David's Dumpling and Noodle Bar and it was too good to pass up. 
 Adorable little soup shot that the owner brought out.  I think it was a carrot ginger combination.
 R loves a spring roll.

 Enjoying a beer before dinner.
 The star of the night - half fried dumplings.  I could eat a triple order of these and I'm not a pork loving person.

It was a great night! 


  1. I wrote about the meetup today, too! It was so nice meeting you. I may have to check out that restaurant. Looks yummy.

    1. Don't'll crave it for days after! I saw your post this morning and smiled, I'm not the only one who waited.

  2. Love your recap!!! I really need to check out that restaurant, too. Yummmy!

    1. Thanks! And yes you should go soon, the dumplings are the best I've ever had.
