Thanks for stopping by Modern Day Gramma. My name is Sandra, I’m a Product Reviewer & Family and Lifestyle Blogger. I reside in the Kenner area of Louisiana with my husband and family. Three words to describe myself is fun, generous and frugal. I’m also somewhat Tech Savvy and I love to learning about it.

Story about my husband and I:

My husband took on a single teen mom (I was 17) with a 1 month old baby, and he’s been there ever since! He’s been daddy ever sense! We tied the knot on May 22, 2009 after 26 years of being together. ♥  Long story, short it never worked out for us to get married, then in April 2009…..

Funny proposal:

He was sitting at the kitchen table and all of a sudden I heard the words “I wanted to marry you for your birthday (March 8th) but I just couldn’t get it together, but I want to marry you!” My reply “Are you serious?” He said yes, I replied “SWEET, GIVE ME 30 DAYS!” LOL We got married less than 30 days later!

My husband and I live about 10 miles outside of New Orleans, Louisiana. We have 1 beautiful daughter and a beautiful, smart and very independent 4 year old granddaughter. I’m married to one of the most fantastic men in the world! Ladies, he helps with housework! HE COOKS and does LAUNDRY TOO!

My Family

My family has always been my greatest passion. My daughter and her husband announced they were having a baby for Thanksgiving 2013! This was the best news, as my daughter had 2 miscarriages in 2012 and couldn’t bear the thought of another one. I felt a joy in my heart that I just can not describe! When they announced it was a girl, the other grandmother and I were overjoyed, another girl for me and the first girl for her! 🙂 Here’s a 3 Generation pic (I’m in black & white, my daughter in the middle and the other grandmother is in white shorts), baby is about 2 months old.

My granddaughter is my little ladybug (good luck charm). She has such a fun personality and is very much an outdoor girl. She loves to play outside even when it’s raining! LOL She’s a very smart and independant little girl.  She knows what she wants and has her way of making sure she gets it! LOL  She’s an almost 4 year old going on 7! 🙂

My daughter and I are the best of friends! I don’t know where I would be without her.  I am so proud of her and proud to have her in my life! She is one of the best things to happen to me in December of 1982!  The next 2 best things are my husband and my granddaughter ♥!

This picture was taken on Feb 23rd on our 1st time FLYING! We went to Texas to see my mom who was not doing well, my daughter was trying to be funny and caught me in the background of his pic 🙂  I like to be funny too ♥
