Life Lately in Pictures

Baking, baking, and more baking. I’ve been working on perfecting my sourdough, and even baked a loaf of rye and pumpernickel! Completely obsessed.

Also, I bought an Alaskan sourdough starter off of Etsy. Guys, I’m turning into a person that buys sourdough starters from other states just to see what they taste like. I’m not mad about it though ๐Ÿ™‚

I made camouflage cupcakes for our cousin Hunter’s first birthday and have been working on a birthday cake and cupcakes I was asked hired to make!

Other things besides baking…

  • My sister, sister-in-law, and I tried taking a picture with our girls at church and it was hilarious.
  • Sadie, Jimmy, and I surprised my parents by cheering them on at a 5k race they ran.
  • Jimmy and I decorated a gingerbread house together while my in-laws babysat Sadie!
  • I visited the eye doctor for something in my eye and found out I have a corneal abrasion. Ouch.
  • Pittsburgh got more snow so we took Sadie out in her sled again!
  • Finished this cute Christmas novel and now I’m onto this baking-esque novelย (<–affiliate links).

What would pictures of your life lately look like?



  1. Sadie looks a little unsure about the 5k based on the picture with your grandparents but that is so sweet of you to all surprise them!

    My life lately would look crazy lol. Even though all of my shopping was complete, getting the apartment cleaned and pulling everything together before we drove to my parents house last Friday was bonkers!

  2. That picture of three of you together at the end is PRECIOUS! Oh my goodness! Such a smile on that girl! โค

    Also the picture of you ladies with the cousin babies is hilarious. We have totally had pictures turn out like that when trying to take pictures with friends and babies. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Thanks, Rach! That is a recent fave of mine! I think I need to frame it ๐Ÿ™‚

      So glad you can relate to the picture disasters with all the babies haha. Sometimes those are just the best because they’re so real and candid!

  3. Mmm, that bread is making me drool & the camo cupcakes are super cool! If I lived near you, I’d be hiring you to bake me so much, too, lol. Hope your eye is okay! The gingerbread house is adorable & so are the 3 of you!

    Merry Christmas, Allie!!! ๐ŸŽ„

  4. I love your dedication to the baking game!!! These pictures are making my mouth water as usual!!! Sourdough, rye and pumpernickel are some of my favorite kinds of breads too. The camouflage cupcakes and the cake you made is so cute! This picture of all you and your sisters and kids is too cute even though the girls are just not having it, lol! Iโ€™m so sorry about the corneal abrasion- I hope it heals up soon โค Loved this update, Allie! Thank you for sharing !

    1. Hahah, thanks Mackenzie! I’m so happy we like the same breads! I feel like people either love or hate those strong-tasting breads. Glad you’re a lover!

      The corneal abrasion is all healed up, thankfully! Whew, so glad those uncomfortable few days are over!

      I hope you, DJ, and your families had a great Christmas and New Year’s!
