My 1st Birthday!


Well, not exactly! 😉 But it’s hard to believe that Along Comes Mary turns ONE today!!! Does anyone remember my first post? I was so proud that I had strangers liking it & emailing me. Since I don’t feel like getting all gushy with a speech, I decided to take some silly pictures from my….er, ‘party’ for this celebration…..


Red wine & Glutino toaster pastries, thats a party!

008My sign says, “Along Comes Mary thanks you & loves you! XOXO”


017My guests! 🙂

Ok, NOW to put my silliness aside! There are some amazing friends in my life I would like to thank…..

Jamie Gall, for lighting the fire for me to finally start a blog people may read, Erin Miller, whom started hers with me, thanks for always making sure I am in the know of whats hot in our blogsphere….& for arranging a REAL celebration next month at Disneyland’s Club 33!! Snackle Mouth Foods, whom were my very first product review & giveaway, Melissa Reyes & Evan Sanders, because of you both I had such an amazing Blog Venture! Susan Cooper, one of my most dedicated readers & just a great person, The SoCal Lady Bloggers, so many of have become good friends of mine, thanks for making the blogging world seem so easy & fun for us new girls 😉 Maribel Reyes, Sondra Drahos & Desiree Eaglin for letting me guest post on your blogs, All the Social Media reps & products who have been so awesome to me & making things happen for my blog, and…..


My numbers are steady, getting better every week & it’s because so many of you are out there, thank you so much! ❤

010And I end this post with some sad, but necessary, dedications. We lost one of the founding member of SoCal Lady Bloggers, Sydney Patrick, last fall & I lost a dear friend of mine, Lauren Alexander, in January. They will carry on forever….

    I was just talking about you the other day (I don’t remember with who) and we were saying it was amazing how far you and Jamie and Erin have come in the past year. When we met for the first time at Olive’s in Burbank, you either had just started blogging or were considering starting. Glad you stuck with it.

    Congratulations on your first anniversary! My husband and I just took a class in gluten-free cooking because we have several friends who are sensitive to gluten and we wanted to learn how to cook for them. All very interesting.

  5. Congrats on a significant milestone. Thanks for the mention and for being you. 🙂 BTW: lived the party guest… 😄

  6. Contrats Mary!! 😀
