Its Time to PARTY Again at The Ultimate Blog Party! #UBP14


Ultimate Blog Party 2014

So many wonderful milestones in both my life & Along Comes Mary’s have occurred since a year ago when I participated for the first time in the popular yearly Ultimate Blog Party, which is the brainchild of bloggers & twin sisters, Janice & Susan. The whole purpose of UBP is to create an exciting hub for bloggers to gather, mingle & hop around to gain new readers & make new friends.

Since I feel most are well-acquainted with me, & can reference my post last year to learn more about me, I thought for this year I would highlight some of my favorite moments on my blog from the year…aaand, FYI, this month also marks my 2nd anniversary of Along Comes Mary! 🙂


(Me, at Nail Garden’s Christmas event for bloggers)

I’ve tried some amazing food & been to some great restaurants since last April….like trying escargot, having dinner at Disneyland’s Club 33 & loving a brunch with bloggers in Santa Monica.

Always in search of great museums, theatre & music, last year found me at LACMA’s Young Director’s Night, The Pasadena Playhouse & rocking concerts, like Demi Lovato, just to name a few.

I’ve been incredibly blessed with moving to Pasadena (Next to LA), finding a great relationship & loving my puppy.
