The Great Blogger Weekend - Part 1

A Nesting Experience is a blog about nesting, moving in together for the first time, and making a new place home sweet home. I've tried over the last year and a half to only post things that both Alex and I have tried together. Whether it is recipes, crafts, or restaurant reviews, the blog is really about both of us, and our nesting experience.

This weekend, I had the chance to hang with some other bloggers from the Boston area at two really fun events, Fall Wine Fest 2010 and November Boston Bloggers Brunch. I spent most of the weekend with Emily of A Cambridge Story, which was, of course, super awesome! Even though Alex was not at either event, they do have to do with the blog, so here's a little photographic recap of Part 1 of the weekend, Fall Wine Fest 2010.

Fall Wine Fest 2010 was environmentally friendly! 

Emily, of A Cambridge Story, taking some notes on the Magners Pear Cider

About to try some locally brewed Blue Hills Dunkelweizen Winter Wheat. So tasty! 

Yep! I was totally all about the Greek wines. No Nychteri though. 

My favorite of the Greek wines. Nemea Reserve, a semi-dry red wine. 

Next in line to meet Cathy from Red White Boston

Meat and cheese pies from KO Catering and Pies

Sharing a snack!

  3. Hi Bianca, it was so great to meet you too! I love your blog. I wish we had gotten to talk more. I was in such a brunch and post Wine Fest coma. Hopefully there will be another fun food event soon!

  5. Hi Erin! I found your blog off of the Adopt a Blogger website. I'm a newbie, too! This is just a thought, but I was thinking that until we were adopted by a veteran that perhaps we could promote each other like a veteran would. We would put a link to each others blog on our blog, visit each other regularly and comment on our posts, and do one blog post about each other. Just a suggestion, thought I'd throw it out there. Let me know if you're interested!

  6. The wine fest looks awesome!! I'm recently starting to acquire a taste for wine. The first wine I tried (and liked) was a Polka Dot Riesling.
    I'm from the Boston area too, by the way! I found you on Twitter :) I try to get to as many blogger events as I can.

  7. Just Add Cheese, too bad we didn't meet up! Did you try one of the pies. Ohmygoodness they were amazing.

    Ashley, yay! Yes, totally! Email me at anestingexperience@gmail.com. Let's chat.

    Kinsey, your blog is awesome! I'm a huge fan of Polka Dot Riesling, good pick. It would be great to meet you at a blogger event. These were my first two, but definitely not my last so hopefully we'll meet up some time!

    Athena, those pies were delish! I guess KO Catering and Pies is doing the next blogger brunch. So fun! Awesome to meet you this weekend!
