Welcome to The Sometimes Glam Wife! I am so glad that you’re here. If you’re new here (even if you’re not), you’ve landed on the right page! I know that there are a billion different blogs out there, and I’m so thankful that you’ve chosen to come here and spend some time with me.
About The Blog
I began The Sometimes Glam Wife shortly after giving birth to my son, Grayson, in August of 2015. After several months of living in a new place, I found myself craving connection with other women, other moms, during a time that I had none.
What started as a small idea to showcase realistic beauty tips and tricks for the busy mom quickly blossomed into so much more. The Sometimes Glam Wife is now not only where I share beauty tips but recipes that will fuel and satisfy your family (and your budget), plus sized style and fashion, and my experiences as I navigate through marriage and parenting. You can also find reviews here, like a lot of them.
If you’re interested in working with me or advertisement, please see the collab page!
About The Wife

Almost three years ago, I traded my makeup brushes and 9-5 job for bottles and wiping someone elses’ butt. Some would describe me as one of those crunchy moms, but I know that’s not everyone’s thing. Truly, I’m only “semi-crunchy”. My days are spent knee-deep in toys, chugging caffeinated beverages, and avoiding laundry.
I found my husband, Jacob, in 2007. He lived in California, and I lived in Tennessee. Looking back, I knew that I loved him right away. (I know, I know, how gross.) In 2014, I finally packed my entire life into three suitcases and five flat-rate shipping boxes and moved across the country to start my life with him. In December of 2014, we found out that we were expecting our first child, and in February of 2015, we got married. Shotgun wedding! Ha! No, we figured after so many years together, it was one of those “shit or get off the pot” moments. We shit.
Like most, our marriage isn’t without ups and downs, but I find myself valuing Jacob’s commitment to our family and our relationship daily. He never fails to keep me feeling safe, he makes me laugh, he keeps me sane, and he manages to annoy me just the perfect amount. I feel truly fortunate and blessed to have married my best friend.
Sweet and shy, but incredibly rambunctious from day one, Grayson is our little explorer. He loves being outside, “choo choos”, shoveling 20 bites of food into his mouth at once, watching Trolls (for the 1000th time), hiding behind corners to scare us with his monster voice, jumping on trampolines (and people), reading books, and giving hugs and kisses. Just this year, we found out that Grayson is hearing impaired, though that doesn’t slow him down! He is such a cool dude, and he is full of joy–truly. Every single day he brings a smile to my face and makes me laugh. It’s been so rewarding watching him turn into a little person.
Becoming a Wife and a Mother has been the most rewarding, exhausting, joyful, and terrifying experience of my entire life. Some days I falter, but we all do. It won’t always be sunshine and rainbows, but it will be raw and authentic.
It’s totally possible to kick ass at this Wife and Mom thing while still being glamorous…sometimes.
I hope that through this blog we can connect, share stories, and get to know one another.
You can never have too many women in your tribe.
