Pleased to Meet You, Hope you Guess my Name…

Pleased to Meet You, Hope you Guess my Name…

Today marks six months since we launched the blog! We could not have imagined back in October that the outpouring of support from family, friends and readers would be this great! From blog posts, to Better Connecticut to iHeart Radio, you have been so good to us girls and we cannot thank you enough!

Over the months, we’ve received many requests for more information about our individual backgrounds, and to know who writes each post…SO, we collectively wrote bios about each other to share with you.


(from left to right)

Melissa is a Post-Partum Doula, and a mother of three girls. To say she loves dogs is a massive understatement. She currently has three rescue dogs which only perpetuates her obsession with bleach and Dove Soap. She is a fiercely loyal friend who will drop everything to help someone in need.


Mary is a licensed insurance agent, culinary institute trained chef, and mother of three. She is one of the strongest women we have ever met. She is also a woman of few words, but when she speaks we listen, mainly because we are all a little afraid of her. Her ability to create amazing Dubsmash videos might be her greatest skill.


Monica is a certified aesthetician and a mother surviving in a household of boys. With a background in public relations, she is the social media brains behind our operation, and is on a mission to bring back the housecoat. Her hair requires its own zip code, and when she is running late, it can usually be blamed on her bangs.


Cara is a Primary Care Physician, a mother of two boys, and has a knack for talking with her hands. She is a jack and master of all trades including making a mean veggie crudité and rocking Bikram Yoga where she can hold Triangle and Standing Bow like no other.


Erica never wanted a career so she majored in Spanish in college (insert laugh). She is now the mother of a daughter and works part time as a frame stylist at a local optical boutique. She is our Girl Scout: always prepared. She can be counted on to have pretty much anything you might imagine needing in her multiple purse pouches. She can work “that’s what she said” into any conversation, has a dangerous tote bag obsession, and shares Melissa’s love of all animals.


Kristen is a former Certified Public Accountant and our resident mathematician. She is a busy mom of three and is our coupon and deal finding expert. She has the sweetest tooth of all the PGG’s and the staff at Munson’s Chocolates know her by name. Her sense of humor is one of her greatest gifts, and her fear of birds is legendary.


With over 15 years of marketing experience in New York City, Washington DC and Connecticut, Johanna is our marketing guru. She also has a passion for fashion which may someday actually require an intervention. She has a fountain soda addiction and is the mother of two young girls.


Sincere thanks for all of your support! You all add so much pretty into our days!

We cannot wait to bring you more!


The Pretty Gritty Girls
