Hi Everyone!! Thank you for visiting my new page! My name is Allison. I am a mom to 3 “kids”. My oldest daughter, Emily, is 23 years old and she lives in NY. My son, Connor, is 19 and a sophomore in college. My “baby”, Michelle, is 8 years old and in second grade. I’m one of the youngest moms on the college scene and one of the oldest moms of the second grade class, but I’m loving it all! I am learning so much about my kids and myself!
This blog will cover many different topics. I am planning on sharing easy recipes, kid-friendly crafts, money-saving tips and fun games for the kids and family. I am also kicking around the idea of travel tips too.
The recipes section will include “normal” recipes plus recipes for those with special diet requirements, such as dairy-free, gluten-free and soy-free options. I have dietary restrictions, so I have learned to convert recipes to fit my needs and my family doesn’t usually know the difference between the “special” recipes and the “normal” recipes!
I am a super busy mom…just like you guys! I enjoy my quiet time, but sometimes it’s not easy to come by. I look for fun, easy and low clean-up craft ideas. I will be showing you all some of those. My daughter loves her slime, so part of my reason for doing the crafts section is to find something less messy for her to get in to. In her defense, she is good about playing with her slime. She stays off of the carpet with it….that’s half of the battle!!
I know there are times when you want to spend time as a family. Sometimes finding fun games can be an “interesting” task. I am going to look up and test new game ideas! I will post my and my family’s favorites!
I also love feedback! I am always looking for new ideas! Please feel free to comment and message me. I can’t wait get to know you all better!!
I am SO excited about this new blog!!! I have so many ideas and I know this will be a pretty awesome place to visit!
