July Favorites

Other than the obvious (my birthday month of March), July has got to be one of my favorite months ever. Shoutout to all the July babies out there. I am sorta envious of you for having such a cool birth month. Anyways, in the month of July, the sunshine is oot and aboot and there's always an overdose of red, white, and blue... which I am clearly a fan of. Speaking of, here are a few other things that I've been lurving lately:
ONE. Blue Avenue clothes.
TWO. Fortune Cookie buttergloss.
THREE. All things red, white, and blue (still).
FOUR. Crazy Love audio book by Francis Chan.
FIVE. The Real Housewives of New Jersey - especially Dina.

All that being said, I am very much looking forward to today being the first day of August. Not only does it mean that husband and I are two months away from our third wedding anniversary (hip hip hoorah), but also, our IVF journey will hopefully be picking up full speed this month. We had a small bump in the road, but I learned a good lesson from it: even still, God is in control - not me. 

Another coolio thing happening in August? There's going to be an Austin blogger meetup! I am uber excited. Here are the deets (below). You know you want to be there!
Last, but certainly not least, I will be starting my VERY LAST semester of graduate school in August. Thank you, 8 pound 6 ounce baby Jesus. I am so over school, but totally dedicated to finishing it. Here come December, all y'all can call me Master Allison, thank you very much. 

Let's all give a virtual cheers to August 1st, whatcha say?


  1. First of all, I love, love, love the Crazy Love audio book. I went through it a few months ago and WOW was it amazing, and humbling. Praying that August is THE MONTH for y'all and the IVF process. God's got this! Happy friday!!
