Choreg, an Armenian sweet bread traditionally made for Easter, evokes memories of my family all being gathered at my grandparents’ house. I am passing that tradition down to the girls.
Looking for something to do in Arizona over Spring Break? I’ve compiled more than a dozen of activities approved by my girls!
My husband made over the closet in our shared home office into an amazing space for me to store and work on crafts. Come take a look! When Peanut was born, we were in a temporary three-bedroom rental house and put her crib up in the room we had been using as our office. For two people who frequently work… View Post
Jake’s Unlimited invited us in to see their newly renovated space, and we were impressed by how much there was to do!
Our play room is a fun and functional space – bright and colorful and full of personalized touches.
After I attended an event a few weeks ago, I told Mr. G that I had been too shy to ask a question. Pumpkin was incredulous. “But mom,” she said, “You’re not SHY!” Of course, I am shy on many occasions. And consider myself to be pretty socially awkward at times.

When I was searching for a dress to wear to a wedding in Cabo, I went into it with two criteria: yellow, and off-the-shoulder. (You know in Steel Magnolias, when Julia Roberts’ character says pink is her signature color? Mine is yellow.) I also didn’t want to spend too much money, because I wasn’t sure how many times I would… View Post
For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you may have figured out that I have two LuLaRoe Carly dresses and I wear them on repeat. I thought it would be fun to start a new blog series, “Four Ways,” and what better way to start than with something I wear so often! (Also, FYI, I plan to include other… View Post
My grandma’s recipe for Black Moons – chocolate sandwich cookies – are a taste of nostalgia, and a hit with my kiddos.
