About Alyssa
My name is Alyssa. This is my website. I like margaritas, potato chips and Jared… in no particular order. I'm a dog mom, professional tennis ball thrower and treat giver.

BeautyCounter Challenge

April 26, 2017 Alyssa 0

March 26th My face is allergic to basically everything under the sun. In the last two years, I’ve been acne-free for maybe a total of 10 days. My mom told me about BeautyCounter — a […]

Delta Gamma Winter Formal

December 3, 2016 Alyssa 0

I’ve always loved wearing the golden anchor. The meaning behind the badge and love in the sisterhood is reason enough to want to crash any Delta Gamma event as an alumna. I was thrilled when […]

Hustle

August 16, 2016 Alyssa 0

To quote Rihanna, “work, work, work, work, work, work.” That’s what I plan to do… minus all the unnecessary twerking. I have four years of school down with two to go. These next years are […]

Bucket List

May 12, 2016 Alyssa 1

(This feature image is terrible. I designed it how high school Alyssa would have. Lol.)  I made a bucket list that right after high school graduation… which a few days shy of FOUR YEARS ago. It’s embarrassing. Okay, […]

What is a Mom?

May 8, 2016 Alyssa 0

A mom lets you have your cake and eat it, too. … Then she cleans up the mess. A mom fills a home with love. (Puppies = Love) From day one, a mom puts her […]

Spring Cleaning

Shout out to my significant other. I’ve been extremely busy these last few weeks, and Jared has been more than understanding. Our house is a wreck. My laundry is in two big piles. I can’t […]

Buckets of Water

March 7, 2016 Alyssa 0

I want to focus on the positive. I want to surround myself with people who do the same. Recently, I don’t know if I have been doing that… and I know this pattern. It is […]

The Best Thing to Never Happen

January 24, 2016 Alyssa 3

As I flipped through the pages, and found myself nauseous with nostalgia of a time when I masked sincere emotions with blue eyeliner and avoided social contact behind the viewfinder of my DSLR camera, I […]

We are just as human as you.

January 8, 2016 Alyssa 0

It’s 8:40 a.m., and society has already offended a large group of women. Nothing new. However, it is not very often that I find myself wanting to respond to the hate in the world, because […]

What’s your plan, 2016?

December 31, 2015 Alyssa 0

Let’s not make New Year resolutions for 2016, OK? I am so tired of listening to people say, “2015 was not my year. I want to (insert resolution here) in 2016 and have the best […]

Take A Moment | Christmas 2015

December 29, 2015 Alyssa 0

When I first met Jared, I had absolutely no idea what kind of influence he would have on my life; let alone, what kind of influence his family would have. For the last 39 months […]
