Jimmy and I just said bye to our first home. I am not sure how normal this is, but I was incredibly attached to that home. Jimmy even bought the house before I came around, so he started off the journey in Clear Brook without a girl and did a fabulous job choosing it! This… Continue reading Goodbye, Clear Brook!
Yesterday I asked on my Instagram who was in middle school, high school or college. I was so glad to learn how many girls follow me who are NOT in my life stage. And it inspired me to address other life stages besides my own. I was single for almost 25 years of my 27.5 years of… Continue reading How to Be Single
Before I became a mom, these were my private thoughts: “What does a stay at home mom (SAHM) do all day? Sure, I get that you’re really busy if you have 3, 4 or 5 kids, or even if you have two tiny kids, but what do you do all day if you only have… Continue reading “Stay at Home Mom” Debunked

I’ve heard so many people say that shopping at Whole Foods is using your whole paycheck and that they don’t shop there because it’s too expensive. I get… Continue reading What I Buy at Whole Foods

So here are some of your questions. If this brings up any other questions or thoughts, leave them in the… Continue reading Q&A with Allison
Okay, this is a healthy treat. You could also call it a snack because it’s not really dessert. This is the healthy version of no-bake cookies. No-bake chocolate cookies have always been my FAVORITE! My mom usually made them around Christmas time, but over the past few years, my family has changed their diet so… Continue reading My Favorite Anytime Treat
I want to admit something to you… Since my baby bump has gone away (there’s still some flab, but it’s mostly gone), I have been thinking through where to buy new clothes because I feel like I owe it to myself for carrying and birthing a baby. I had not bought regular sized clothes in… Continue reading Why You Should Unfollow Me
Hi! Sorry I have been lacking on the posts lately. If you follow me on social media then you know my granddaddy, who my family is REALLY close to, is really sick and has been in the hospital fighting for his life.
