Happy New Year!
I’m not one for ‘resolutions’ because why wait for a new year to start making a change? I do however love the excitement, cleanse, empowerment and optimism that surrounds a new year.
I do love setting realistic, achievable goals for the new year on Jan 1. In 2019 I made some serious changes and crushed some serious goals. I lost 50 pounds, I practiced an act of self-care monthly, became comfortable with being misunderstood, and turned my focus to the family that loves & supports us.
I’ve got even bigger goals for 2020. Follow along for all my weight-loss tips, tasty recipes, favorite things and more!
As always, cocktails & curse words included!
My Baby: You are enough, You have enough
Parenting is hard. Not only do you have to worry about if you’re raising them to be polite, functioning humans, other judgmental parents and providing well balanced meals – it’s your job to protect them from the craziness of the world & ‘adult’ problems. That last one weighs on me heavily, because one day they will be old enough to understand. This is an open letter to children who have individuals who have chosen to not be a part of their lives.Continue reading

Toddler Friendly Cool Whip Easter Egg Dyeing
While this post is a moot point now, it was super fun and easy so I had to share. It’s a good one to keep in your back pocket when Easter rolls around again.
Last year at Easter, Gunnar was too small to understand or participate. This year was a different ball game. We dyed eggs, did multiple eggs hunts and celebrated with family.
We dyed our Easter eggs with Cool Whip, yes you read that right. The sweet, sticky dessert topping! We all loved every delicious moment of it. Continue reading

His & Hers Engagement Gifts
This past weekend during their ‘Stock the Bar’ housewarming party, surrounded by everyone they love, Leep’s brother Jeremy popped the question and was answered with an excited – Yes!
Congrats Uncle Worm & Auntie Ash!
We were the only two in on the when & where details so we decided to surprise them with his & her engagement gifts right after the proposal to start the celebrating early. Most people will gift a bottle of wine, a Congratulations card or some other generic gift. Why not mix it up and give something a little more personal and meaningful. Here’s what we put in our gifts…

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