I'm Ally a mid-twenties girl who grew up with the true midwestern charm of Kansas and was transported to the Southern life of Florida. I am now in the DC Metro area enjoying the vast mix of Northern and Southern charm.


Weekend Recap

+ Batting cages and dinner with my two favorite guys Friday to get ready for the softball tournament. 

- Getting to the softball tournament Saturday just in time for the insane downpour and a 1 hour rain delay of all games. 

+ The skies clearing up and playing some great softball games. Even if our last one was a little frustrating, we still made it to the elite 8 and ended right where I wanted to. 

+ Dinner in DC with team mates enjoying delicious pizza and good conversation. 

- Waking up with incredibly sore legs Sunday morning. 

+ Spending all day on the couch watching football, aside from our run to Costco where I found awesome goodies for next weekend.


This confuses me because it’s clarified butter as we are instructed to eat on the whole 30. However on the label it says contains milk…?

Is this not okay? I’ve been to four stores and trader joes was the only one that had clarified butter.

Was going to write this as a reply but it is too long and wanted to make sure the whole explanation got through.

Ghee is part of whole 30 so you are okay to eat it. That marker is there for lactose intolerant people or those allergic to dairy and required by the FDA. While the process of making Ghee removes most of the dairy from the butter some traces of milk protein can still be found in Ghee and those extra sensitive have to be careful which is why that is included on the label.

Is it next weekend yet? Now that softball is over the countdown to BFF arriving in DC and celebrating her birthday with a weekend filled with outlet shopping, cooking in the kitchen from the Crate & Barrel catalog, and lots of desserts and drinking!

The boyfriend acted like I was crazy when I came out to pack toilet paper in the softball bag for the tournament tomorrow. Things only women have to think about when going to a public softball park, this park runs out of toilet paper every year. Glad I remembered to pack some this year!


City & Colour + P!nk

I have listened to this at least 5 times now. So good! 






Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy - Dancing Groot

“Baby Groot dancing is 100 percent me. I was too embarrassed for anyone to be there, so I made everyone leave the room and I set up a camera and I videotaped myself dancing. Then I sent the video to the animators and had them animate over that. I begged them not to leak the video! Two of my closest friends came to an early screening and said ‘Hey, I recognize those moves! That’s you dancing isn’t it?!’” - Vin Diesel

reblogged before but that comment just makes it that much better



Tumblr is so adorable in misquoting people and deciding new “facts”. Vin Diesel did not say that and the dancing is not Vin Diesel. It is infact the movie director James Gunn.
