Y'all, I feel like I am in blog-Hollywood today!   Show of hands...who here has heard of Melissa at The Life of a Not So Ordinary Wife?  Everyone...right?  Unless you've been blogging under a rock, you've probably seen her super popular blog hop.  Having been reading Melissa's blog for awhile now, I have been just itching to snag one of those coveted co-host spots.  Thinking about all of that networking and getting to meet so so so so so many new bloggers makes me giddy with anticipation!

No more anticipating!  Blog hop day is here!

If you're one of my readers, link up and get to know some wonderful ladies...if you're visiting from the hop, welcome to my slice of life!  I can't wait to meet you.

How about a little introduction?

I'm Allyson, and I love life.

I also love big hair, big smiles, and Coca-Cola.
Around here I blog about school (which is pretty much just student teaching these days), my upcoming (on June 22) wedding, and whatever else comes to me.  That ranges from my hair (and how I do battle with it) to food to what the Lord is doing in my life.

I hope you'll stick around for awhile...thanks for hopping by!
 If you're looking for more ways to connect you can find me on Pinterest, Google+, Facebook, and Bloglovin'!
It's Tuesday again which means it's time for the GFC Blog Hop!
When I want to follow a blog the first thing I look for is GFC (Google Friend Connect), it's so easy and  nice to be able to go and see all of the blogs you follow in one spot. It's really a great tool to have. 
One side note- Did you know you can follow through GFC using your Twitter Account? TRUE, it's definitely an option!
If you are interested in co-hosting the next GFC Blog Hop send me an email at
Ok, so let's get to the party, shall we?
RULES are simple:
1. Follow your host via GFC
The First link below
2. Follow your co-hosts via GFC
The Next 8 links below
3. Link up below using your main blog url not a specific post.
4. Make sure to visit some of the blogs in the link up and follow them via GFC 
and if you want to leave them a comment, I'm sure they'd appreciate that as well.
5. Tweet about this blog hop

6. Share about this blog hop by grabbing a button and putting it on your sidebar!

Having had a crazy week, have dropped in too late to link up with you properly. Still better late than never, so I've followed you anyway, and hope you'll return the favour sometime by visiting me at

Hope to meet you and get to know you better, earlier! Best wishes. Isobel
