gallamore west: about me

about me

Hi! I'm Laurie Gallamore and I'm so happy you found my blog, Gallamore West. I started this blog in 2007 as a way to keep in touch with family. My husband is from the East Coast and we settled in my hometown of San Diego, thus the blog name, Gallamore West.

I'm a 5th generation San Diegan (wahoo!) and I love being able to raise our family in the same town, and even the same HOME that I grew up in. That's right! We bought the home I grew up in from my parents and are happily raising our boys in the home I grew up in. It's a 1970's semi-ranch style home, that we're currently updating on a majorly tight budget. I'm excited to show you the changes we make along the way, starting with our Budget Kitchen Makeover here

We have four beautiful, wild little boys who keep us on our toes all of the time! I'm a former 2nd grade teacher who quit to be a Stay At Home Mama when I realized that I couldn't balance it all and the mama guilt was tearing me apart.  Now I fill my days with our four little guys- playing, laughing, baking, crafting, and coming up with silly traditions that I hope we will continue with our boys well into their adulthood.  I love Target, the satisfaction I feel in crossing things off my to-do lists, baking anything sweet, eating breakfast for dinner, tickle fights in the family room, hosting parties, a nice hot glue gun, vintage treasure hunting, and people who still know how to say please and thank you.

I like to blog about easy recipes, sweet treats, simple DIY projects, and our biggest current projects revolve around updating our home on a major budget. I hope you find something here that inspires you! I love social media, and I'd love to connect with you on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram or Twitter
