Throwback Thursday: Interviewing Published Author Liza Elliot


Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

It’s Thursday…and y’all know what that means–it is time for me to throw it back to a fun and fabulous VIP blog moment! Yay!

To celebrate Liza Elliot’s newest book 30-A Super Club: The Cook Book, which was released earlier this summer, let’s take a look back at when I first met and interviewed the magnificent author! Click here to read interview.

ALSO, I just so happened to have run into Liza while shopping at Saks Fifth Avenue Birmingham a little while ago–it was such a joy!  We chatted about the cookbook + a few upcoming projects on which she is working. Sh…I promised not to tell anyone *wink*

This Wednesday, I am trading a Weekly Whistle for a What’s Happening Wednesday–yes, I have made this blog into a card game for the moment. Hm…what a fabulous idea…a VIP card game *wink* Okay–this is no time for digression because I have two fabulous Birmingham events coming up SOON that you all should attend. Now, let’s find out what they are!

Also happening this week in Birmingham–30-A Supper Club author Liza Elliott will be releasing her 30-A Supper Club: The Cookbook (written by authors Liza Elliott and Nancy Dinsomre) at Williams-Sonoma at The Summit Birmingham on April 24 from 5:30–8:00PM. This launch party will provide a delightful atmosphere, complementary samples from the cook book, complementary wine, swag bags, a meet and greet with the author and the opportunity to purchase a signed copy of the book….BUT The festivities do not end there. A silent auction of a gift basket filled with Williams-Sonoma goodies will take place benefiting the “Delicious Nutritious” Program at Children’s Hospital.
