Allow me to introduce myself

Happy Monday, my lovely blogger friends!

Recently I have been blessed to gain some lovely new followers even though I have been slacking on my blog posts since we moved 3 weeks ago. Wow...has it been 3 weeks already? Where has the time gone? Oh yeah, unpacking and making new neighbor friends!


To all my new blogger buddies, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Allison, I am NOT very photogenic so 99% of my photos are of me BEHIND the camera.


I'm married to the most wonderful, loving and handsome Filipino. This September we will be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. After 10 years we still love each other like we are newlyweds. I am so blessed! Not only is he an amazing cook but he loves to help clean, take care of the kiddos and gives me killer foot rubs. Okay, okay I will stop gloating about my hubby.

Isn't he handsome? 

We are blessed with two amazing kids, Dylan is 13 years old and Payton will be 7 years old in September. They keep me on my toes! I am truly blessed to have the ability to stay home an take care of my family (and take care of my grandma full time) and go to school full-time to finish my degree in Nursing. 


 

So being a mother of two, caregiver and a full-time student coffee is my best friend. Is there really life before coffee?


My hubby (Chuck) works a full-time corporate job for a French wood-wind instrument company as their IT Manager and he also sells the instruments. Talented I tell you that guy is! 

Living in the Sunshine state (Florida) there are lots of pros and cons. We love the beach and warm weather all year long, but the down sides are no white Christmas and crazy insane weather like hurricanes, tornadoes or rain for weeks on end.

I love the outdoors! Camping, trail riding, beach, boating, fishing, water skiing, running etc. 






Plus I don't mind getting my hands dirty with some DIY projects.


And for those of you who are curious I have four tattoos and more than likely not stopping there.


I love to cook but my real passion is baking.  I'd say as of lately 99% of my recipes come from Pinterest. Yes, I am a Pinoholic! Check out my recipes stash here


Well, I hope you enjoyed getting to know me because I adore getting to know each and everyone of my lovely followers. 


Make it an amazing day!
