2 Big Changes...

Whew!  It has been a crazy past few weeks here at the Allred house.  And thankfully, it's because we have some crazy, exciting new changes right around the corner!

First off, we will be moving in a few weeks.  Super cool and a huge step for our little family!  Although a little bittersweet, since Brett and I have lived in this cute, tiny, old home since we've been married.  So many memories are here, and it really feels like ours.  This is where we started our marriage, where we lived when Landon was born, where we have experienced everything up to this point in our marriage.  But, we are excited for our new adventure, and we will happily be moving not too far away--into an equally old home (built in the 50's!), but just much more space!  

The even more exciting news is that our family will be growing (you'd know this already if you followed me on instagram, @tia_allred)!

Yep, we are expecting another little peanut, due in February.  We are beyond thrilled!  And yes, yes, in case you were about to ask (as so many others have), my first 2 kids will be very close together.  Just less than 18 months apart.  But, I know it will be a blast!  A lot of work, I know that too, but a heck-of-a-lot-of-fun!

But in case the pregnancy thing is foreign to you, or you have been blessed with perfect ones, this first little bit is not real fun (so throw moving in the mix, and it should be a real treat!).  I mean, we are talking total exhaustion and nausea that may or may not be kept under control by force feeding myself whatever I can choke down.  Oh, and another very sad part, I am having terrible food aversions to pesto, one of my most favorite foods!  Hopefully that will pass.  But in the meantime, I will prepare dinner in phases over a couple hours (Shred the cheese, then go lay down.  Take a drink of water, boil some water on the stove for steamed veggies, then go lay down.  You get the point.).  But, I look at Landon and know how worth it they are!  I'd do it 100 times over to have my babies (I love having babies, it turns out) here with me.  But, I'm so grateful I don't have to do it 100 times!

So really, what I am saying is, to please be patient with me the next month or two.  With all this coming at once, blogging might get scooched to the back burner for a few weeks.  But never fear, with these big changes, come some DIY projects I am sure (new-to-us house built in the 50's), and how to budget in for a baby (round 2, for us!).  So exciting!


  1. Yay! Congrats on the move and the baby! I am dying to move into an old home! So fun! And hang in there!

  2. Congratulations, Tia! We are also looking to move into an older home, hopefully near Arcadia since my husband works in the Camelback Corridor. :)

  3. Wow, this is a big season for you! Where is the new house? I understand how hard this time is for you physically. Morning sickness is no joke. Well, god luck with everything!

  4. Congratulations!!!!! I'm sooooo happy for you!!!

  5. Yay Tia! I thought you might be pregnant based on your Pinterest, but I kept quiet!

  6. woot woot! And my older brother and I are a about 20 months apart and it was awesome growing up. All my sisters' kids are almost exactly a year apart, and it seems fun to have them close like that. Exciting for you!
