A big thank you to Doro, a dear friend and probably the only blogger friend I know up, close and personal, for nominating me for the Liebster Award.

    Congratulations to you on your nomination and also thank you so much for thinking of me! I really appreciate it! I’m dying to know where the deadly mosquito scare was that you had to miss going to? Also, Mumford and Son is definitely on my Top 5 list of wanting to go see in concert too!!

    • wonderlandbytatu February 25, 2013 at 3:15 pm #

      You are very welcome Melissa.
      MAURITIUS and the whole honeymoon gone wrong thing needs an extra post!

  4. February 25, 2013 at 8:27 pm #

    Thanks for the nomination.
    Crazy story about your honeymoon. Also, what’s up with the rat for a pet?

    • wonderlandbytatu February 25, 2013 at 8:44 pm #

      You are welcome.
      Yeap, crazy but (unfortunately) true.
      The female rat, aka Jerry Lee, was sold together with the male rat as a pair of very cute white mice with pink tails and pink ears, which the ex boyfriend of my sister (back in the day) gave her as a nameday gift. Three months later we realised they were not actually mice, but rats indeed. Jerry Lee was one of THE BEST pets ever. Seriously.

        I think it could make for a good post. Certainly unique.

    Tatu, you had me at “bake my own bread infused with sundried tomatoes!” Yep, I’m definitely salivating over here! You should seriously consider opening an eatery. Sounds like you have quite the gift! Thanks again, my dear, for the gracious shout out to my blog. I love going on this blogging journey together! 🙂
