I love watching this little girl grow. This photo was just taken in early October and she's already a completely different child now. She's running, talking, and has all the best dance moves. She has a favorite stuffed animal, favorite foods and loves to read books. She knows all of her body parts as well as a few animals and what they say.  She knows people's names and can recognize a photo of them on the wall. This child is so bright and so beautiful and there's nothing I love more than being her mom 😍

Today was a big day. Today, I ended my 19+ months of being "just" a stay-at-home mom and blogger and officially went back to work outside the home. Last month, I officially accepted a position as a Behavioral Health Professional, working with kids with behavioral issues and disabilities and today I had my first full day away from Allie. While I missed her terribly, it was so refreshing to have the opportunity to talk to and work with other adults for the first time in 2.5 years. I’m so incredibly excited for this opportunity and to start making a difference in these families’ lives. HUGE huge thank you to my husband for being the stay-at-home parent this month and another huge thank you to my sisters (@alexvic3179 and @kendalanne4), Zack’s mom (@mbartlett28) and anyone else who may be watching Allie in order to allow me to go back to work and pursue this dream. 😍

Lately, I've become obsessed with the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. My skin is so acne prone these days and this lotion dries them right up overnight. It's become one of my holy grail beauty products. Check out the blog for five more of my holy grail beauty products! {link in the bio}

Last Minute Stocking Stuffers For Her - Behind in your Christmas shopping? No worries! Here are some awesome last minute stocking stuffers for both men and women!

It’s almost Christmas you guys!! If you’re anything like me, you still have yet to buy stocking stuffers. Stocking stuffers are so much fun! It’s probably my favorite part of Christmas shopping, yet I always leave it to do at the last minute. I found some great stocking stuffer ideas for both the men and women in your life so I wanted to share some of my favorites with you all!

Being a typical girly girl, I LOVE these ideas for stocking stuffers. Makeup, candles, gift cards. I love anything girly, gold, and/or polka dot. Girls are typically pretty easy when it comes to stocking stuffers, assuming she’s a typical girl like me.

1 | iPhone Case. If you’ve been around a while, you know that I’m obsessed with cell phone cases. I buy them way too often. This let It Snow iPhone Case is perfect for wintertime!

2 | OPI nail polish. I love having my nails painted and purchasing new nail polishes. These colors by OPI are super cute for Christmastime!

3 | Portable phone charger. This portable charger has been on my wishlist for a while now. I’m not sure why I haven’t bought it yet. It’s even on my Amazon wish list. I’ll have to just buy this for myself this year!

4 | Bath and Body Works candles. What girl doesn’t like candles by Bath & Body Works? I love all candles. I don’t discriminate. I actually have five candles on my desk as I type this. No joke. If you don’t know what to buy me, then buy me a candle!

5 | EOS hand lotion. My hands get super dry this time of year so I never leave the house without my EOS lip balm and EOS hand lotion.  I try to stay moisturized!

6 | Compact mirror. A girl can’t have too many compact mirrors. And what makes this one better the rest? Well, it lights up AND attaches to your smartphone to give you added light for selfies. How cool is that?!

7 | Kate Spade card case. It’s no surprise that I love this Kate Spade card case. It’s gold and it’s sparkly. I need it. Plain and simple.

8 | Knit Boot Cuffs. Aren’t these knit boot cuffs super cute?! I need them in my life but in off-white. I love that look for this time of year!

9 | Sephora gift card. Makeup can get expensive sometimes so treat the girls in your life to a Sephora gift card! I always appreciate a little extra spending money.

10 | L’Oreal Paris lip stains. I’ve mentioned the L’Oreal Paris lip stains so many times and still couldn’t recommend them more!

Last Minute Stocking Stuffers For Him - Behind in your Christmas shopping? No worries! Here are some awesome last minute stocking stuffers for both men and women!

I feel like men can be so challenging to shop for sometimes.  Zack’s “easy” mainly because he always wants something NFL themed, but that just gets so boring after a while.  He can only have so many things with the New England Patriots logo on it.  So I had to get creative to find some new stocking stuffer ideas for men.

1 | Nerf Guns. It doesn’t matter how old your man is.  They’re NEVER too old for Nerf Guns. Zack’s mom and I buy Zack and his brother Nerf guns every year and they LOVE them. It’s easily they’re favorite gift each year.

2 | Dockers Wallet. Men seem to go through wallets so fast! They always make a good gift.

3 | Golf Ball Bottle Opener. Zack is always needing a bottle opener so get creative! He also loves to golf so I thought this Golf Ball Bottle Opener was perfect for someone like him. My dad and grandfather are also huge golfers and beer drinkers so this gift works for every man in my life.

4 | NFL Knit Hat. If the man in your life has a favorite sports team, then get them an NFL Knit Hat! This allows them to support their team while also keeping warm during the cold winter months.

5 | Stainless Steel Flask and Cigar Gift Set. This Stainless Steel Flask and Cigar Gift Set is perfect for those guys nights. You can’t play poker without some cigars and a place to put your liquor.

6 | Calvin Klein Cologne. Every man has to smell good so why not get him some Calvin Klein Cologne?

7 | Travel and Groom Kit. Every man travels at some point, so why not get them a Travel and Groom Kit? Everything they need in one place!

8 | Chloe and Madison “Nautical Collection” Shot Glass. Shot glasses are always a fun stocking stuffer and this nautical collection is super cute and fun for any man.

9 | Monogram Cufflinks. Not every man needs or will use cufflinks, but these Monogram Cufflinks are a great gift idea for the men in your life who like to dress up a bit.

10 |  Nautical Poker Chips. Does your man love poker? Why not get him these Nautical Poker Chips to up his game? This website has tons of great poker chip designs and even has ones that you can customize!

What are you adding to your stockings this year?
