Fall Recipies I Want to Try

I've gotten so into baking in these past couple of months I'm surprised my family and I don't weigh 2000 pounds because of everything I've made! It's become a very therapeutic activity for me. When I'm mad I just whisk the crap out of whatever I'm making (being a lil over dramatic tbh), or when I need a little pick me up, I bake one of my favorite chocolate cakes. 

Even though it's been so warm for weeks, I still am really pushing everything fall right now. I mean my mom and I bought pumpkins and mums this past weekend so I mean that means fall is officially here right? Even though I can't pull out my light sweaters and vests just yet, I'm still going to take fall full force and ignore the temperature displayed on the weather channel, haha.

Weekly Update #4 | 2017

Well hi there! Another week and that means another weekly update post! I absolutely love writing these things (so much so that I'm starting this on Monday). Quick question though, how do y'all feel about my new blog design. I mean the overall layout isn't too different, other than the fact that I removed the pictures below my header, but do y'all like the navy and blush theme? I absolutely loved my pink and orange theme because it really was me, but I also thought it gave a bit more of an immature look to My Life as Alyson. I also love other bloggers navy themed blogs and I knew I wanted to try and create my own.

This was quiet the eventful week so lets get to chattin'!

Dream Destinations

My family and I have traveled to the same two beaches my whole life. Every spring and fall break we're packed up in our SUV either heading to Hilton Head or straight down I-75 to Florida. I love those trips, and we have amazing memories at those beaches. My brother and I have grown up going there, and I at least would love to bring my children to the beaches we always visited.

I do love those vacations, but I really love the idea of exploring new places. My family and I plan on going to Chicago one summer, and a couple summers ago we visited D.C. I'd love to go to so many other places though, and I've compiled a small list of places I want to go below!
