Gigi means "Great-Grandma" Now doesn't Gigi sound better than Great-Grandma? My hubby and I had 5 children. 3 sons and 2 daughters. We now have 10 Grandchildren, and 6 Great-Grandchildren, with one on the way in May. Therefore, that makes me a "Gigi."


  1. I LOVE the information and can relate to so much of it! Regarding instruments you play - my brother in law, (as a teen) when asked what musical instruments he played would respond:
    "I play two instruments. The piano and my mother's nerves!"

    Have a great week and thanks for the lovely intro. I leave with a warm, wide smile!

  2. Great intro thanks so much - always great to get to know fellow bloggers! Let ABC long continue.

  3. Thanks for the intro. ALSO, thanks for your help with the Word Verification problem.

  4. I agree, Gigi is much better, it's hip and chic. In the country where I came from it is actually a name hehehe. I would love to taste some of your chili, I love chilis too.

  5. Yes! Gigi DOES sound better than Grandma! Someday (in the distant future I hope as my son is only 20), I hope to adopt that name too! Guess I'll be Gigi Paula! Loved learning more about you.

  6. Wow that was quite an alphabet-challenge! So that's where Gigi comes from. I had no idea! :)

  7. Lots of fun things in your intro, Ann. I guessed that's what Gigi meant. I have great fun, however, with my friend who grew up across the street from me. I love calling her Great Grandma Gloria. It makes me feel so young. LOL

  8. Hello Gigi Ann.
    LOVE your intro. "Gigi" sounds quite romantic...even sultry (smile).

    Have a great week everyone!

  9. Nice intro, Gigi. I'm liking your reading corner, too :)

  10. That's why my name is Nana -to me it sounds endearing. Grandma just sounds old to me. Don't mind grocery shopping, because I think of all the yummy food I'll be eating, but I do mind anything in the cleaning department, no Gratification in that:)

  11. Hi Gigi! I so much enjoyed your intro. Gigi is a great name, wish i had thought of that. Love your reading corner.

  12. It's nice to put a character to a face. I like GG, but I'll never attain it as I had my children too late in life to achieve that status. When I became a grandmother I wanted to be called Brendy (my name is Brenda) but my daughter, who is a much more traditional person than I am, said 'No! You're Grandma!' So I'm stuck with it.

  13. Gigi - love it! We have a few things in common - including almost the same name! I'm not retired though, just starting on a second career. And no grandchildren yet, great or otherwise! lol I too love your reading corner, looks like a super comfy spot to settle in for a reading marathon :)

  14. Tardiness drives me crazy, too!

  15. I know many with the name Gigi :) Love the intro..


  16. I agree with you on Tardiness, no excuse for being late at all. Hi Gigi, yes it does sound so much nicer than great grandma.
    A pleasure meeting you :)

  17. I do think Gigi is much better then Greatgrandma. . .My sister-in-law called her Greatgrandma Granny :) When my mother became a Greatgrandma my brother tried Granny out on my mom. Let's just say it didn't Go over to well. :)

  18. Hi Gigi, thank you for your wonderful introduction and accompanying photo. I love that Gigi stands for Great Grandmother and it looks like you have a wonderful family.

  19. I like the sound of Gigi - will have to remember that when the grandkids start gifting us with great-grandkids.

  20. wow, that is a blessing to be a Gigi, great grandmother :)

  21. Nice intro and cute picture. thanks for sharing.
