Ultimate Blog Party 2013!! #UBP13

Ultimate Blog Party 2013

Hi everyone! I'm Liz, mama to 3 year old Mackenzie and 8 month old Mason.  I started blogging in 2011 after having read other blogs for some time and entering giveaways.  It seemed like a fun outlet from my work day and was perfect for discovering so many awesome brands.  

I enjoy shopping, reading, traveling (although we haven't been anywhere awesome since having Mason), snowboarding (again, haven't been since Mason) and pinterest.  

I am currently planning my meaty's 1st birthday party (yes I know it's 4 months away but...) and I have so many ideas, just need to get it organized.  It's a big deal where some people spend upwards of $10K-20K+.  A mini wedding in some cases.  Mackenzie's was at a restaurant with some DIY from me but this time around I want to do something different (and more cost effective).  With all the awesome pins floating around pinterest and the web, I hope it turns out fabulous :) 

Please leave a comment below and a link to your blog, I’ll be sure to stop by and visit! 


  1. Hi Elizabeth,
    I love your blog; it is so cute and colorful! I also started blogging after subscribing to many others and entering giveaways. Although we don't spend nearly as much on birthday parties; I am the same way (planning months in advance) My babies 1st birthday will be in September and I often find myself holding back already on the planning but not the pinning. Feel free to stop by my blog Happy UBP13!

  2. I love how you share the things going on in your life. I have enjoyed reading the many different ideas you have and the awesome giveaways. Your family is so darn cute. I am not a blogger, just a follower and giveaway addict. :)

  3. I love your blog and have been visiting for a while now and entering your wonderful giveaways. I am a giveaway addict and love reading about all the products you get to try out. I have a blog too if you want to stop by and visit

  4. I have been following your blog for a few months now and I love it! I just started blogging this year so I am still learning a lot. Side note: I also have a son Mason! :) He will be turning 3 *gasp* in a few months but I am also starting to plan! We did a dinosaur theme for his first birthday and Thomas the train last year. I am thinking of maybe doing a barnyard/farm theme this year. Good luck with the planning and I hope you stop by my blog!

  5. I love that you're already planning for the birthday party! I bet it's going to turn out great. Looking forward to seeing the pictures!
