Cookie & Coral meet Jaques & Jaqueline

After meeting up with Richie & Keith in January, our calender filled up with all kinds of cool instameets! On February 12 lil Coral and me went to Amsterdam to meet our sweet German friends Jaques, Jaqueline, Di-Lu, Peter and Ben – and their humom ofcourse! Coral was sooooo excited to see Di-Lu again! They are family you know. Coral was a gift from Jaques and Jaqueline to our family a few years ago. And me love her to pieces. But she really wanted to catch up with her family.

After an exciting traintrip to Amsterdam we met our dear friends at the train station. First we had lunch. Me got real spoiled with nommy cookies in a heart shaped tin, some foil balloons and socks with me face on it! Well… the socks were for Berry. O and we got a little new fishee friend to join our family. We made Di-Lu a hat to match Corals Cat-Hat. Also we gave some cookiepins to the rest of the family. Coral and Di-Lu had loads to giggle about! They were soooo happy!


After lunch we went shopping! Me love shopping. It always lots of fun. At HEMA Berry bought me some hairbands, one of them made me really fit in with me eight legged friends. Hihi. Can you see it in the picture? We also went for coffee at Rembrandtplein and we did a Canal side photoshoot!



It was so much fun! The family was soooo sweet. Me sure we could have talked for ages and ages! Also we could have cuddles for ages hihi. Me got all entangled with all those octopusarms. Also thanks to Jaques, Jaqueline and the family me got to adopt a lil Cookie Monster brother from Germany! Me, Coral, lil Cookie and our fishee no can wait to meet the family again! Me sure we will soon.

About My Blog

My blog is mostly my UN-SECRET Diary. I write stuff about my boss bear business, my adventures (if I get to leave Honey Grove), my crafting paw-made stuff. Elle likes posting her stories about Honey Grove on the blog. So, I guess it’s a shared blog between me (a teddy bear) and her (a hooman). One time, I was writing my post while traveling on an airplane and we had some turbulence. Elle said we had to put away the compooter and so we tried to write with our paws/hands. We honestly thought we would be able to remember what we wrote because our handwriting was so bad because of the turbulence. Well, we didn’t’ remember and we couldn’t decipher any of our writing. We had to toss it all away.

I started my blog last summer (2017), I think. Or it could’ve been last week or 100 years ago. I’m not too good keeping up with days and times. I started the blog because I started a bear business and I wanted others to read about my adventures being a boss bear (because I think I’m the only boss bear in the world??). Anyway, that’s mostly what my blog is about; being a boss bear and having adventures. And some ElleM stories. OH! And sometimes some tasty treat recipes. I also have an online store called Bears Howse Mercantile. But it really isn’t my store, it’s Brownie and Clementine’s. They are the Mercantile owners in Honey Grove and I offered them a place on the internet highway. I prefer to write about adventures or something I’m working on. Elle likes telling Honey Grove Stories. I don’t really have a favorite blog article that I wrote, but I do like to read Elle’s stories. I especially like the one about Barry Barnes.

Blogger magic is when the voice of the blogger is heard (read) and makes the story seem as if the reader is truly experiencing it with the writer. And I hope I have that magic. If I do (and even if I don’t), I would want everyone to read my blog because I’m not sure there are other teddy bears out there blogging and it’s how one can get different perspective on things. I also know that Honey Grove is a fun place and I would hope others would want to read about my little township.
