Age is simply a NUMBER.  I could honestly care less.  The only time I might feel a little insecure about my age is when I’m chatting with the cute girls at the gym or the coffee shop or out shopping and feeling like I am “their age” and they end up being about 10 years younger…haha.  But hey, you are…

St. Regis Spa Weekend

First of all, my husband is a saint for allowing this weekend to happen.  For Christmas, my dad gave all of us “Glenn girls” a spa weekend at St. Regis in Atlanta.  So, shortly after Christmas, we booked the weekend, which happened to be my mom’s birthday, a perfect weekend to celebrate!  Of course, on Friday morning, my youngest son,…

Celebrating Grayson!

Saranghae Means I Love You

First off, 2 true confessions – #1, I am NO skin care expert and #2, I was the WORST about washing my face throughout high school and even college and beyond.  I fortunately didn’t really have any “skin issues”, so I thought it was totally fine to go to bed with my full face of makeup.  What 20 year old…

ALL the Stocking Stuffers

Stocking Stuffers tend to be my last minute gifts, but I love finding fun and unique items to stuff in my husband’s stocking and not just “fluff”.  My mom always stuffed our stockings with the best stuff:  our favorite lipgloss, facial moisturizer, gift cards, etc… Some years if it has been last minute, my husband and I both have simply…
