Stripin' Up Conversation: Black & White Dress + Pink Flats

Wednesday, April 30, 2014


Hi all!  I am loving the spring time feelings that are going around lately.  It makes me reminiscent of last year around this time.  We just had our one year anniversary of moving to Arizona from Florida, and what an awesome decision it turned out to be.  Just over a year ago, Matt & I got rid of most of our belongings, packed up everything else that was left, and moved from Tampa to Phoenix (along with Luna, Dakota, and a litter box in tow) in one tiny Mazda 3.  The road trip out west was super fun, and we have so many amazing memories.  Since officially getting out here, life has only been filled with more happy moments and opportunities.  We truly feel like this is "our place."  We've got jobs that we love, a hilarious group of friends, Kingsley came into our lives, and my mom and stepdad are just 30 minutes away for the first time since I was in high school.  It's really where we're meant to be at this time in our lives.  (Now, if only we could get my sisters to move out here, too!!!)

I cannot believe we've already lived in 'Zona for a whole year already!  I feel like we just got out here.  Life is moving fast, man.  No joke... Have you made any big life changes recently?  Or have plans to in the near future? If you do (or if you don't, but just keep dreamin' of it), my advice is to just do it already!!  You won't regret it (whatever "it" may be :D).




[Not So] Fancy Florals: Tee + Skinnies + Flats

Monday, April 28, 2014


Hey there, guys!  How is life these days?  Things here in the AZ are great :)  Our foster dog, Kingsley, has settled in quite nicely (but he has kennel cough - the poor dude).  He and Dakota are the absolute best of friends.  Luna and Kingsley, on the other hand... we're still working on that relationship.  Do any of you lovely LunaVida readers have tips for introducing an eight pound kitty to a gigantic St. Bernard mix?  (Any advice that you have at all helps!!)  For now, we are just taking it nice and slow with the introduction process and letting the cat call the shots (as it should be in all aspects in life).

Ooh, and be sure to check out Instagram (@alliegee319) to see all the cute photos of the babes!

What spring trends have you been busting out lately?  It's already starting to get prett-ay hot here in Phoenix, so I've been wearing pants as often as possible (in order to fit them in before it's officially summer and 100+ degrees every single day, of course).


Springtime Happiness {& A Big Announcement!}

Sunday, April 20, 2014


Soooo, guys... Matt & I have some big news to share...

No, we aren't pregnant.

       No, we aren't engaged.

            No, we aren't moving again.

Yes, we have a new addition to our family!!!

Meet our new foster doggie, Kingsley!  He is a 1.5 year old St. Bernard/Leonberger mix from the shelter where I work and, if he and Luna get along, he will soon be the newest member of the Gunter-Harrison household!


He is as sweet, gentle, and kind as they come, and we already love him to pieces.

I hope you all had a great weekend!  Our's was just amazing!! It was Dakota's 2nd birthday on Saturday.  I just can't believe she is already two years old - she is still my baby!  Matt and I are so lucky she came into our lives :')

Speaking of Kota's birthday, that is also the day when we took Kingsley home with us.  They are the best of friends, and I love seeing them bond so quickly.  Just the sweetest.  The absolute sweetest.

Thinking Pink: Tee + Moto Jacket + Jeans + Ankle Booties

Thursday, April 17, 2014


Hi gals (and maybe a few guys...? ...)!  So the other day I came across a scrapbook box of old letters, awards, photos, etc. that I hadn't seen in YEARS.  It took me right back to the olden days of the early 2000s.  Right back to when I first started dressing myself as a teenager and thinking I looked super cool.  Uh, Pre-teen Allie.  Newsflash: you had the longest awkward phase of anyone on Planet Earth.  Looking at these pictures made me feel like from approximately 2001-2006 I was just one huge brace-face, polo-wearing nerd-o.  It makes me extra grateful that I had such loving friends who stuck by me even during that half a decade or so of 100% geek (and no chic is included in that... whatsoever).  But, hey!  To give myself some credit, I was always into trying new things even if they weren't "cool" [which they weren't...].  But at least I took risks!  :P

How bad (& lengthy) was your "awkward stage?"  Or were you just a cool kid from Day 1?  I'm still working on that... Then again, I am a Hufflepuff, so I may never reach that status.  And that's okay ;)
