Meet Monica

Welcome to the Malmy Madness


I’m Monica Malmgren (Malmy), wife to Philip (Leep), mama to Gunnar and fur babies Dozer & Darth. A confessed Chipotle addict and die-hard Indianapolis Colts fan.Untitled-6

Here’s my story, speed style. I met my husband on a blind date in 2012 set up by my best friend. I quickly knew it was love by our third date when he sang N’SYNC to me on the ride home. A year and a half and a tiny apartment later we were engaged. The next year was a whirlwind of buying a house, planning a wedding and a mission to Ethiopia. We were married on 12.13.14, the most magical winter wonderland wedding.

In November 2015 Gunnar was born. The pregnancy was tough, the delivery even tougher. Our nights of beers and bars was quickly replaced with bottles and diaper changes. We’re learning that parenthood is one of the hardest yet most rewarding things ever and are excited to watch this next adventure unfold.

Gunnar + Dozer & Darth

Our furbabies. I entered the relationship with my Chihuahua, Dozer. After buying our house we decided we wanted to expand our family – enter Darth, the demon of destruction Labrabull. He’s literally eaten us out of “house and home”, it brings back nightmares just thinking about it – but we’re past that now.

So now, as I navigate this crazy, beautiful thing called life I will share our glimpses into our daily life, recipes, projects and everything in between.
