His & Hers Engagement Gifts

Engagement Giftbags

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! 17634418_10102349967907607_8985838658398820672_n.jpg

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…

It’s rare that we get a full weekend with Leep. He typically works Saturdays and we have to squeeze things into one day. This weekend we were lucky and had him with us for a full weekend, and man did we make the most of it! Join us for a weekend in the life of the Malmy’s!

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

A few weeks ago, my baby boy turned one. ONE. Excuse me while I go wipe the tears from my eyes. I am so excited for the little man he is becoming but miss my little, snuggly baby. Watching him grow and learn has been the most wonderful experience.

Now, I wasn’t sure what to expect from a first birthday party, or even where to begin to plan throwing one. Children can be very unpredictable with their moods, do you serve alcohol, how long should it last, do people really wanna watch him ‘open gifts’ [eat the paper].

After all the stress and craziness – it ended up being the perfect day and truly a ONEderful party. See all the details here!  Continue reading
