Is your life chaotic and stressful? Are you looking for ways to make your life less demanding and more enjoyable?
.Great! Then you have come to the right place!
We are Shannon and Sheena—the two, crazy sisters behind Lala Lee Lou. We created this blog in 2016 to share our ideas, hobbies and talents. If you are wondering where the name Lala Lee Lou comes from, it comes from the beloved Dr. Seuss story called Gertrude McFuzz. In the story, Gertrude is an insecure little bird with a one-feathered tail. She compares herself to Miss Lolla-Lee-Lou who is a pretty bird with a beautiful two-feathered tail. Gertrude gets angry and jealous because she wants to look like and be like Lolla-Lee-Lou. But in the end she realizes that she is happy just the way she is.
We know how easy it is to compare ourselves to others. Our world is filled with social media, TV and magazines telling us how we should look, what we should do and who we should be. It is easy to get caught up in these thoughts and think that the grass is greener on the other side. Here at Lala Lee Lou we are not trying to share our ideas to make others feel inadequate. We are sharing our ideas to help others “simply enjoy life.”
SO WHAT DO WE SHARE ON LALA LEE LOU?
• easy, delicious recipes
• Holiday ideas
• organization tips
• crafts and diy
• and more!
A Little Bit More About Us
Hi, I’m Shannon, the older [and wiser:)] of the sisters.
I’m married to a wonderful husband who puts up with my crazy ideas, and I am the mother of 4 children (ages 10-17). I work from home, which I am very am grateful for. It allows me to be home during the “crossroads” of the day (when everyone leaves in the morning and returns in the afternoon/evening). I love baking, particularly breads and desserts. Life would be bland without dessert! I really enjoy gardening. There is something therapeutic about digging in the dirt. Each January, I study seed catalogs and wait patiently for spring. My husband and I have built one home and remodeled two. During our most recent remodel, I decided that I really enjoy remodeling. I love starting with something that is run down and neglected and transform it into something new and wonderful!
Hi, I am Sheena, the younger and crazier sister!
I started blogging back in 2010, and have loved every minute of it. I have learned so much, and continue to learn each and every day. I am married to my best friend, and are going on 13 years together. We have 4 crazy kids (ages 3-10) that keep us pretty busy, and even though it can be tough being a Mom, I wouldn’t change it for the world. I am currently going back to school and will be, hopefully, getting a degree in Web and Graphic Design, super excited about that! When I get a free minute I enjoy trying new recipes, baking, crafting, reading, and creating cute printables in Photoshop.
We are so excited that you are here, and hope you’ll stick around for awhile! If you have any questions or comment, feel free to contact us. You can also find me us Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest, where we share other great ideas from fellow blog friends and sites that we love.
