I'm Allison.
Thirty year old wife to Ross. We've been happily married since October 1, 2011, aka the best day ever! We dated our entire college career and are the best of friends. God has also chosen me to be a mommy to a sweet little baby girl who arrived on June 5, 2015 and to the most handsome little boy that ever existed, who arrived on September 23, 2016 very prematurely at 25w&1d. Thank you God for blessing me more than I deserve with two babies. Both of our babies were conceived via IVF after my hubby and I were told there's no reason we should have any issues conceiving (aka "unexplained infertility"). When I first started blogging, I wrote all about makeup & going on dancing dates with my hubby. Now, I use my blog as a way to document what parenthood looks like for us, and to hopefully show exactly how God is behind each piece of our life.
Here's a little about me you may not have known:
*The 4th of July is my favorite holiday of all time.

*90's country music make me one happy lady.
*I'm a Reality TV Junkie.
*My drink of choice is Topo Chico.
*I am a full time Stay At Home Momma.
*Laundry and vacuuming are my favorite chores.
*Window shopping makes me happy.
*I love crafting.
*I live in Austin, TX.
