No-Thanksgiving Adam Allen Vlog

Sarah and I give thanks year round. It’s part of our faith. I don’t mean we have an attitude of thanksgiving. I mean we literally say “thank you” for many things, even the bad things that teach us lessons, all year round. So we joked that we should to “No-Thanksgiving” and list the things we […]

Adam Allen - Okay

Paula Rodgers Hewitt - I don’t like that some people forget about you 364 days a year (365 in leap year), but suddenly remember on Valentine’s Day – because every advertisement reminds them. If you don’t have time the rest of the year, don’t waste my time on just one day.

Adam Allen - You’re welcome to say no thanks to valentine’s day. But I love that day. I use it to celebrate everyone I love.

Paula Rodgers Hewitt - That is so awesome Adam. You are the second couple I have met who live to give thanks all year round. I love the idea. Can I add another one to your list? Valentine’s Day! “NO THANKS!”

Adam Allen - Typical!!!!

Kyle Reynolds - Wanna go grab a taco later?? Oh wait, something came up.

Amado Rivas - It’s videos like this that make me thankful to call you a friend. This was hilarious! Lol! I do have to say no thanks to some of ur no thanks (don’t judge me, I never use UR) but it’s a free country and we can disagree…and I think that’s cool! :-)

Lina Lomeli - I just died!!! hahahahahahahahahahahahahahah

Adam Allen - Thanks friend!

We just don’t enjoy it. We’ll take john someday. But the lines and stuff. We just don’t find it fun. We respect that you like it though. You can say “no thanks” to my “no thanks” to Disneyland. Ha ha

Heidi Coffey - Omg this video was so you. Thank you, very entertaining. But I just what one bone to pick with you…what do you have against disneyland?!?!

Adam Allen - A lot of people are. But that’s okay. You can day “no thanks” to my “no thanks” to Disneyland. I’m glad you guys laughed!

Bethany Jane Nichols - My sister and I laughed so hard! But we are disappointed at the “no thanks” to Disneyland.

Adam Allen - I try!

Becky Hastings Giles - LOL you crack me up!!!!!

Christmas Music

  Many people are talking about Christmas music. Our local stations have begun playing it, and shops like Macy’s have a Christmas tune every fifth song. This reminded me of my favorite Christmas Collection, the Hotel Cafe Winter Songs (Christmas album). If you haven’t heard, or BOUGHT, any of the Hotel Cafe` Winter Songs album […]

Rhonda Kane - Accidentally hit enter before I was done… So glad you & Sarah get to begin experiencing the joy of sharing Christmas with your own child. I’m sure it will bring you so much joy. Here’s to new traditions!!!

Rhonda Kane - Children make The Christmas season so much more magical and they are the best reason to slow down and not only, teach them what Christmas is really about, but live it as their example.

Julie White - Love, love, love CHRISTmas such a special time to bad we can’t keep all the Decorations and lights up all the time. Well I guess I could but people would probably think I was little off in the head ;) oh wait they already do!

Sarah Allen - Great post, darling! I’m excited to carry on and start new traditions with you and Johnny.

Adam Allen Photography - Awe… Wow thank you melony!

Melony Lemon Holt - That made me tear up! Adam you are such a beautiful person! Johnny is so lucky to have you and Sarah has parents!

Geoff Ludlow - Love this Adam! Especially your explanation of your faith and “translating” it to be “universal”. Definitely sharing this. Thanks for being open and vulnerable about this personal part of your life. Others will benefit.

Becky Prewitt - Good stuff.

Laura Morin - To the Soon to be married couple.. Dawn Simas and Thomas Kerr.. I haven’t read it yet.. but comments look good. .:-)

Viktoriya - Thank you! It’s great to know that there are great examples for this younger generation that have a strong foundation! Thank you for sharing your advice! It is valuable to me as I am getting married and would like the best for my marriage! May God bless you and your family!

Elli Koutsoubos - love this, love you!

Lauren - Chocolate and nice guys. Ooooooh, how I laughed!

Great, fantastic, wonderful advice!

Julie White - Adam & Sarah, I am soooo very very proud of you! Not many young couples get it. You two on the other hand have such an insight of wisdom that only comes from God. I’m in tears writing this, you have blessed my heart. Thank you so much for sharing this with all of us. I pray that God will bless those who read your post/ council with a fervent fire within to heed such wisdom. I pray that God will pour his spirit of love through you, in you, around you, and before you both. Thank you again! Happy Anniversary and you WILL have many more! Don and I celebrated our 34th this past June, I am SO BLESSED

Megan Prewitt - I love this! Especially #2. I’m printing this out for my future marriage : ).

Aaron Hewitt - Hey, Adam.. I don’t know what you mean about #5. I think you should post a comment explaining it so no one else is confused.

Angel Marie Tindell Pimentel - Very sweet. Thank you for sharing the wisdom that you and Sarah have definitely learned over the years. I am so proud of both of you and excited for your new adventure as parents! luv u guys!

Kim Klingborg - Congrats on you n Sarah 10 years of marriage. Me n Jon are at 12 years married but have known each other for 20 years. These are all great words of wisdom for ALL couples. I think that number 2 is the hardest for couples. Too many people want to “fix” the other one. It just doesn’t work like that. Me n Jon talk about each others day every single day. It may sound the same sometimes but you must LISTEN to communicate. Too many people are already thinking what to say next instead of really listening. It really makes you feel appreciated n cared for when someone really listens to you.
You will be a new father soon n I look forward to hearing the joy your little one brings you both. Thank you for your words of wisdom. For a young man you have a old wise soul.

Marie Mercier Gennaro - Sweet. I also especially agree with #3. My husband has NEVER given me “make up” flowers in 35 years.

Crissy Navarro - I love #5! been too long since I’ve laughed so hard.

Cyndi Medina - And yes, number five wins so much!

Cyndi Medina - So good! Blessed so much by your marriage.

Veronica Escamilla - Awesome adam Allen! Ill keep all those in mind when I find my mr.right (: lol

Bernadette Bracy - Great advise! I agree with everything except chocolate. Believe it or not, I’m not a fan. I would switch it to ice cream for myself. Lol! Congratulations on 10 blessed years!

Benjamin Kennedy - I cannot get started soon enough with this great advice! I also can’t wait to share this with Melissa.

Jenna Dias-Loogman - Some of the best advice I have ever read!

Adam Allen - ;)

That’s a wink face. If you know what I mean.

Bethany Jane Nichols - Nice guys finish last.

Patricia Bargas Lozano - #4 and #9 Great!!!!

Raimey Allardyce - This was awesome! Thanks for sharing.

Mandy Poremba - #3 is really really cute.
