Welcome to The Amabiscas! I am seriously 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 Brandi

My name is Brandi Amabisca, and I am a Wife, Mother, Professional Makeup Artist, Wannabe Foodie, and Blogger! I am a plus-sized, Latina, Millennial Mom just trying to figure it all out… I am a lover of all things beauty, home, making delicious food, and travel. While I enjoy living a moderately healthy lifestyle, the occasional cheats make their way in. I’m a sucker for French fries, y’all.

My husband and I have been together for thirteen years, and married for three. He is 100% my better half, he is full of all of the wonderful and amazing qualities that I’m lacking. He has always just…gotten me. It’s one of the most attractive things about him. I’m also a lot to put up with, and he does it *mostly* with a smile on his face.

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 oftentimes shy, but incredibly rambunctious from day one, Grayson is our little explorer. In Early 2017, we found out that Grayson is hearing impaired, though that doesn’t slow him down! He is incredibly opinionated, beautifully brilliant, and such a character. He has a fascination with Space, Dinosaurs, and literally anything with wheels. 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. He just recently has started practicing jokes on everyone, and it’s as precious as you’d think. It’s been so rewarding watching him turn into a little boy.

In July of 2018, we welcomed Sawyer into our lives. She has been such a blessing. Grayson has so enjoyed being a big brother, and really tries to step up and help with everything, every day. Her little smile and laugh is incredibly infectious, and it’s been so fun to see her personality come out more and more as the days go by.

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. Becoming a Mother of Two has been…an experience. I am still trying to navigate my way through it, every day I learn that I’m capable of more than the day before.

It’s totally possible to kick ass at this Wife and Mom Thing. I know it is. I get by with caffeine and a lot of crockpot meals (which I’ll totally share with y’all!)

I started blogging because I craved people, community, and Moms to share my hopes and dreams, and trials and tribulations with. 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 corner.
