One Year of Madness

1year_giveaway

What started as a playful idea between my best friend and I to occupy our down time. Thinking back to my first post, I’m surprised it’s survived a whole year. “They” say the first year is the hardest. I’ll admit, I haven’t devoted much time to this blog – I need to be better at posting. I’ve only posted 40 blogs since its fruition. That’s not even once a week. Shame on me.

But even with my lack of posting, you all, about 6 thousand a month [!], are still here with me, still reading and still loving the madness.

Thank you!

To thank-you for your ongoing readership & support, let’s kick off Malmy Madness Year 2 with a giveaway! Continue reading

Mini Breakfast Quiche: Gluten Free, Paleo & Whole30

Like everyone else we’re feeling the post-holiday spare tire, extra pounds and bloat here in the Malmy household. Leep and I had our best success in weight loss and healthier lifestyle when we were training for our Tough Mudder and doing a “30 day Paleo” challenge. [post on this coming soon] So for 2017, we’re going back to this lifestyle.

One of our favorite go-to breakfasts are these mini quiches. You make a bunch at once and freeze. Then just pop in the microwave in the morning and go! They’re totally versatile and can easily be changed to avoid repetition. Plus, they will fit in any gluten free, paleo or Whole30 lifestyle you’re doing! Continue reading

DIY: Porch Makeover

porch-makeover

When we bought our house I loved that it had a double decker “party” porch.

When we moved in it had green turf carpet, the screens were covered in plastic and the wood paneling was starting to warp. We immediately ripped up the green carpet and removed the plastic from the screens in our initial house demo. This got us through a few years. This year, the wood paneling started to fall off,  get moldy and just fall apart. Not to mention our demon dog [Darth] tried to chew his way through the house. It was time for a face lift. 

If you have a porch and it’s starting to look a little dingy or dated, follow these easy steps to give it a brand new look that’s easier on the budget than an entire new porch!  Continue reading

It’s December first. Another year gone. It’s been a trying year for my family. We lost my grandmother, then my grandfather and my sister moved to another state. These are the words I need to remember going into 2017, for life is short and we need to make the most of it.  Continue reading
