Celebrating My Blogoversary Week with the Ultimate Blog Party!! #UBP13

By: Erin


Ultimate Blog Party 2013

Until the other day, I had never heard of the Ultimate Blog Party, or #UBP13 When I started seeing it here and there across twitter and facebook, I didn’t think much of it. I thought, Oh I don’t have time for that as I have so much going on already. I think I saw that hashtag one too many times because here I am writing up my own party post! LOL I thought it would be appropriate, to participate and be part of the party seeing that on April 10th, my blog will be having its 1st birthday or “blogoversary” as I’ve learned it’s called. So why not take part in a week-long party to celebrate this?

I’m not entirely sure what it all entails or what I’m getting my self into with this, but why not?

I’m hoping this will introduce me to other bloggers and new friends, soΒ  if this is your first time stopping by, welcome!!! I am so glad you stopped by. If you have been here before, well then I’m glad you came back to visit me again. That makes me happy too. πŸ™‚

My name is Erin and I’m a California girl, born and raised who has always had a love for horses, hence how the word “Horse” made it into my blog name. πŸ˜‰ I adore horses and I love to travel all around LA, the OC, and Southern California finding fun things to get into and involved with. Tada! Put those two together and you have what has become “Horsing Around In LA”

I tend to blog about my adventures around LA and anywhere else life takes me, horses, photography, anything involving Disney, causes that are near and dear to my heart,Β  as well as product reviews and giveaways from time to time, and anything else that my heart desires. I’ll stop now and just leave you with a few photos that should sum up a little bit about me and things I love.

Lets rock this party and roll on out!


My logo that I worked so very hard on with my friend Rocio who helped me bring my idea to reality with her mad skills. Thanks girl! πŸ™‚


Yeah, I kinda sorta like horses if you haven’t noticed?


What kind of California girl would I be if I didn’t love the beach and the outdoors? I love being outside and in the water!


I’ve always been in love with Hello Kitty. She’s so darn cute! How can you not like her?



A girl scout from Daisies through Seniors, I have always had a soft spot for volunteering. Giving back to the community, supporting good causes and charities is so important. Here I am as a 2013 ambassador for Mimi’s Cafe. They support wonderful causes such as the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women (which is why all of us lovely ladies here are showing off our red dresses) and the National Breast Cancer Foundation.


Another wonderful cause to support. Helping those in the community who are facing barriers to get and keep jobs, which provides purpose, pride and dignity. They believe the power of work changes lives, and it does.


Disneyland. The happiest place on earth. Never.Gets.Old.


There are always tons of fun and exciting sporting events to go to around here. I am SO EXCITED to be going to another hockey game with Smile Generation #smilegenhockey on Sunday for the Kings Vs. Ducks game!! YAAAHHH!! As you can tell from the picture here, I’ve been going to hockey games for quite awhile… (the Ducks no longer wear this uniform…)


I love the outdoors if you can’t tell already. I spend as much time as I can outside in my garden, enjoying the beauty of life.


What’s a party without cake? I LOVE food, and taking pictures of food and writing about it…. here’s some cake (well a cupcake) to get THIS party started!



Then of course you may just need a glass of wine to wash that yummy cupcake down…. Cheers! Hope you have a little more insight now about myself and enjoy the party! πŸ˜‰
