Gigi Connection Grandparenting

With decades of friendship between us, we aim to empower and encourage women of all ages as we share, from our hearts, topics relating to health, beauty, Fashion, reading, cooking, faith in God, travel and the joys of aging gracefully as we live life with our friends, family and adoring grandchildren.

Our greatest hope is that with almost 200 collective years of marriage wisdom, 20 grandchildren between us (newborn-12 years of age) and friendships lasting since 1989, our blog encourages you in some way in your friendships, your relationships, your faith, your self and in this wonderful journey called grandparenting.

Super Bowl LVII will be held on Sunday, February 12th in Glendale, Arizona where the Kansas City Chiefs will be playing against the Philadelphia Eagles. All of us Gigi's were hoping the Arizona Cardinals would be in the Super Bowl this year as that's where the five of us met and four of us still reside there today (Gigi Lori, Lala Malana, Mimi Jackie & Nana Alison). Gigi Susie now lives in Castle Rock, Colorado. If you're lucky enough to have one of your teams playing in the Super Bowl, will be hosting a party or going to a Super Bowl party and don't want to derail your eating habits, w…

The word Galentine's Day first was heard in February of 2010 during an episode of Parks and Recreation by Amy Poehler. In the episode, she says "What's Galentine's Day? Oh, it's only the best day of the year. Every February 13th, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style. Ladies celebrating ladies. It's like Lilith Fair, minus the angst. Plus, frittatas. —"Galentine's Day," Parks and Recreation, 2010. So although it's not an official holiday, people everywhere embrace the very idea of a holiday for celebrating fri…

It is about the gestures, not the gifts. I love that it is an all-inclusive holiday to share and I have a few ideas for you, as your kids or grandchildren reach that "tween" age. I have found as my grandchildren have gotten older they are fond of "quality" chocolate, thanks to their mother. So I have decided to get them one nice box of chocolates instead of several miscellaneous treats. I found…
