Birthday Giveaway Winner!

Thank you all SO much for entering the Erin Condren planner giveaway! Y’all I love my planner so much and I’m tickled to get to share one with one of you!

And the winner is…

Birthday Giveaway: Win an Erin Condren Planner!

Hey y’all! This little blog of mine started with an idea when I turned 30. I created a 30 in 30 list and while I didn’t complete all the items on the list, I’m so thankful that I started this blog. Through my blog I have been connected with dozens of thyroid cancer patients and am able to talk to them about the journey of cancer. While most tell me “thank you” for helping them, I get the most joy out of being able to share with them. Even though its been almost 4 years since my diagnosis, it is healing and comforting to know that others are with you in the fight.

Today, I turn 32 and instead of making a “32 in 32” list, I decided to do a giveaway of one of my favorite things… a planner. I know, I know I’m old school with a paper planner, but I just LOVE it! You can keep the planner for yourself or give it as a gift!

The planner I’m giving away has a permanent leather cover, lots of stickers to personalize the pages, a perpetual birthday calendar and a snap-in dry erase to do list. Y’all are going to LOVE it!

2017 will be the fourth year with my Erin Condren planners and before that I used the Lilly Pulitzer planner. Below are my planners over the years… I love to keep them and look back through them from time to time. The EC planners have enough space for me to make it a mini journal of sorts. I write things like “Lyla Rae’s 2 year old molar came in” or “Luke scored two points in his game”. That way I have notes for their photo albums if I ever get around to making them! Hah!

So, how do you win this lovely planner? Simply subscribe to Everyday Allie Rae,  follow me on instagram @mrsallisontamme and comment below to tell me your favorite Christmas tradition. You will get one entry for each and I will announce the winner on Monday!

Children’s Book Week Giveaway!

Children's Book Week Giveaway

Today is the first day of Children’s Book Week and to celebrate I’ll be hosting Everyday Allie Rae’s first giveaway!


While I don’t read much as an adult, I loved reading as a child. I find that now if I read my Bible each day that’s just about all the reading I’m able to fit in. However, we read LOTS of children’s books every single day! Thankfully, both of our kids love to snuggle up and read and we love it too!

This week I’ll be giving away four of our family’s favorite books to one lucky winner: Little Blue Truck, Go, Dog. Go!, Dear Zoo and The One Year Bible Devotions for Preschoolers. If you would like to enter but don’t have small children, feel free to enter and you can donate them to your local library or preschool.

We have lots of favorite books, but these are the ones that we’ve read so much that we can recite them from memory. Of course, we haven’t memorized the devotional book, but we try to read it each night with Luke. It includes a short devotional, a Bible verse (usually a condensed verse) and a short prayer. It’s really a great way to end each day!

To enter the giveaway, leave a comment with your favorite children’s book. I’ll be choosing the winner at random on Monday, May 11th. The giveaway will end on Saturday, May 9th at midnight EDT.

Good Luck and Happy Reading!
