Welcome to the Grant life!

Are you a new reader to the Grant life?  We want to say welcome!  I am so happy to have you here!  And if you have been a reader for awhile, heyyy!  The Grant life is a blog where I mix food and family together.  I love to share our lives with yall and enjoy getting to know my readers.  Let me give you a quick of idea of what to expect over here at the Grant life.

Easy Homemade Recipes

I love to cook and create new recipes that are simple to make and use as few dishes as possible.  Sweets are my favorite but calories are not.  We try to eat as healthy as possible without sacrificing taste.

A few of my favorites are:

I also have an all breakfast recipe where I feature some of the best recipes on the web, including some of my own.  I love food, yall!


Easy Homemade Crafts and Gifts

Crafting is in my blood.  I remember creating with my great grandma when I was younger and I love doing the same with my kids.  We like to make easy homemade crafts and gifts together and sometimes mama gets to craft alone.


A few of our favorites:

Our Family Life

This little family of mine sure keeps me on my toes.  We are the proud parents of two little monsters who were born 14 months apart.  Ryley, our daughter, loves to dance and get dirty.  She’s never met a mud puddle she wasn’t able to splash in.  Avery, our son, just wants to do whatever big sissy is doing at the moment.  He’s got his own opinion and isn’t afraid to share it.

Blogging Tips

I started blogging in 2010 and knew absolutely nothing about what I was doing.  I’ve learned a lot since then and I love being able to share the tips and tricks I’ve learned.

Financial Friday

Every Thursday evening at 7PM CST I host a link party called Financial Friday.  Its a time for my readers who blog to share their posts from the week and for my readers to find new sites to read.  And don’t let the name fool you – anything goes at Financial Friday!

I love to host giveaways of products or services that I know my readers will enjoy.  I’ve featured giveaways from Seattle’s Best, Famous Footwear, Silhouette, KitchenAid and many more!  Everyone loves free stuff, right?

When I think a product or service is awesome I share it with yall!  These can be things that my family already uses or things that I was given a chance to review.  In either case, I give my honest opinion even if its not always the best.

    Hi, just happened upon your site and now intrigued by all your talent. I would like to receive your posts via email. My brother and I were 16 months apart and my mother always commented on having 2 kids in diapers, probably looking for sympathy, but that was decades ago. You have a beautiful family! I love to craft, sew and do a little knitting and crocheting. My family is grown so I have no need to cook…use only the microwave now – LOL

    • Hi Jeanette! Thanks for stopping by! Two in diapers was rough, we are down to only one now. And may be for awhile since he shows no interest in training! Im glad you stopped by and if you want to receive email updates you can click the red banner up top. Youll enter in your email and should be good to go! Thanks again for the sweet comment!
