Each week we will have a new guest join us for the chat – from southern craft artisans,  companies & brands, bloggers, musicians, chefs and more! We will spend the hour-long chat getting to know our guest, meeting new friends and greeting old friends, and chatting thru a few questions that we’ve compiled in advance of the chat. Most weeks, our chat will include a chance to win a southern-inspired giveaway {special thanks to some of our southern sponsors, partners & guests}.

Oh, I am such a fan of the lovely Courtney Dial. I do think we have had such a fabulous time getting to know each other (oh the wonders of Twitter, yes?), and I do hope you’ve had the pleasure of doing so as well! She is just as sweet as can be.

I have long been in love with Courtney’s famously creative blog, Pizzazzerie, and when I found out she was coming out with her very first book, I was just thrilled to pieces. Push-Up Pops is the very first cover from Courtney, having just launched on March 1st, and is filled with creativity from cover to cover. I am just so excited for her I can hardly stand it. And, a bride-to-be, I know she is busy as a bee!

I credit myself to be much more a baker than a cook, and from a young age have always loved assembling little treats to enjoy. And, Push-Up Pops are the epitome of fun – what little kid {or adult ..} would not love them for any occasion? In celebration of Courtney, I am hosting a giveaway this week for a signed copy of Push-Up Pops – just for you! I have a copy myself and trust me, you will want this one on your shelf for sure!
