About Us

Andy and I met on a blind date in Dec. 2005. One of my 7th grade students was his neice, and she set us up. Go figure. We saw each other every day after that! We were engaged by June and married in September of 2006. In January, 2008, we welcomed little Ethan into our home, and in August, 2010, little Addison arrived.

Andy is a diesel mechanic at Kennecott. I taught middle school science for ten years, and am now an evidence-based learning specialist for a school district.

Bye Bye!

The new phrase of the month from Ethan . . .

bye bye, see you in a minute! Oh my goodness it is adorable!! He says it to EVERYTHING! Now that I'm a mom, I realize that the bathroom is no longer a private place. Ethan has to be in there with me, and he makes sure that he waves at the toilet as it flushes and says bye bye pee pee, see you in a minute!

Beaded Bliss Design

Lately I've been trying my hand at making jewelry, and have really come to quite enjoy it! Several people have asked me to make them items, so I've started a jewelry blog. Beaded Bliss Design by Leslie!

I have watch bands, bracelets, earrings, necklaces, lanyards, bookmarks, baby bracelets, and more to come!

Eventually, I'm going to shoot for online payment/shipping options, but for now, if you see something you'd like, email me at lesallen916@gmail.com and we'll work something out! Here is a little preview . . .

Ward Halloween Party

I had to borrow these pics from Candace! Thanks!

Andy's Birthday

Happy Birthday babe! We LOVE you!

Notice sneaky McGee over there inching toward the cake! He kept saying yummy cake over and over again. I had to keep telling him that it was daddy's cake and we had to wait for him to come home to eat it. It's amazing that the cake actually lasted until dad came home!
