My name is Allison, but I usually go by Allie. I am a mom to 3 mostly wonderful children. I have a 12 year old, Anthony, almost 2 year old, Dougie, and an almost 1 year old Maddie. I would absolutely not be able to handle all that chaos without my amazing husband, John. I am an elementary special education teacher. I love being able to be home with my kids during vacations and the summer.
I love, no, I would say I have a healthy obsession with anything Disney. I love traveling there and my entire house is full of knick knacks and snow globes. One time my son’s friend even asked me if I knew I had Mickey on my utensils. When the TV is on in my house, it’s usually Lion Guard, which is my 2-year olds current obsession–so much so that he is able to repeat some of the phrases or songs.
In my spare time, I enjoy being outside. I practically live outside in the summer, mostly because my yard is fenced in and my kids can’t escape. I love having people over to my pool and just throwing burgers and dogs on the grill. I’m Italian, so there is always way more food and snacks than I need. Spending time with family is extremely important to me. All of my immediate family lives within 12 minutes of us, and it is a blessing to have everyone so close.
I look forward to getting to know everyone through this blog! I can’t wait to share stories and ideas!
