I could not be happier to celebrate my 3 year blog birthday with my bloggy bestie, Liz of That Skinny Chick Can Bake. Liz is the most amazing individual. I adore her completely. We’ve been buddies for years and have even travelled to conferences together. We do a Thelma and Louise weekend for Mixed each year, no cliffs involved though. We also had the pleasure to meet up at Food Blog Forum. Liz was able to meet my family and even hung out at Disney with us. She tolerated the Bee family and came on rides with us. The girl kicks butt at shooting games too. We always have so much fun when we’re together. I consider her one of my dearest friends. Not just a blogging buddy, but a lifelong friend.

We joined forces with our very special friends to bring you a great giveaway today. These girls are my heart. I’m so lucky to have such a great group of gals as colleagues, and friends. They are such a special group of ladies, and I’m honoured to have them celebrate with us today. I love this girls and encourage you to get to know them. You will adore them as much as I do.

      Hey lady. Thanks so much. It’s been a wild ride.

      I know with 100% certainty I’m going to blogher food in May. Ticket is booked. I think it’s highly likely I’ll be at the sunday supper one in July, I think it’s called food & wine. A bunch of friends are going and I love the SS crew so I may hit that one too.

      On the fence but may attend EWR and FBC as well. Working out deals first since I can’t afford to foot the bill.

      You should totally come to blogher food. It’s going to be so much fun.

I love her, but this is the second window that’s been broken in pursuit of that darn cat. Thankfully the last was just screen. I am thankful she wasn’t hurt- I’m not thankful for the expense of having to replace a window! Thanks so much!
