Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

I always, always forget about this. Actually, this is only the second year that I’ve participated. And this year I forgot. Thank goodness for email or the party would have flown right by me.

I’m Allison, also known as Alli in the blogging world. I’m a slightly OCD momma {yes, you do have to eat M&Ms in pairs of matching colors}. and the mother of one spunky, energetic and often hilarious three-year-old boy, with another boy on the way {due this July}.

Most of my free hours are spent sharing life, recipes and photos here at Alli ‘n Son. What began as my story of going from a working mom to a stay at home mom has morphed into something much more delicious. Breads. Pizza. Cookies. I love to get down and dirty in my kitchen, bake, cook and share. Most of all I love to share, because really I can’t eat all of this food. Well, I could, but I may just explode after, and who would be left to clean it up?

Each Friday I host a weekly link up for sweet-inspired foods, Sweet Tooth Friday. Bloggers are invited to share their latest creations, as long as it’s sweet it’s welcome! Don’t forget to bring a napkin when you visit or you’ll be drooling over your keyboard. If you have a sweet recipe to share, stop by this week’s linky and recipe for Toffee Snickerdoodle cookies.

Not only do I cook and bake, I also create. As a “retired” graphic designer I’m constantly searching for ways to stay creative through helping friends and family and through the lens of my camera and often through my iPhone camera. Life as a stay-at-home mom can get boring if you aren’t constantly looking for ways to be creative.

You can also find me chatting on Twitter, sharing on Facebook and snapping away on Flickr. In the few minutes that I have left in the day which aren’t dedicated to eating cookies, I spend as the Content Manager for Blogger Body Calendar.

Yes, life is busy. And it’s awesome.

A Few of my Favorite Things:

That’s a bit about myself, but I’d love to know more about you. If you are a long-time reader or if you just found me through UBP, leave a comment introducing yourself.
