I'm obsessed with these wreaths in the Old Port 😍 aren’t they gorgeous?! We're halfway through January and there are still hints of the holidays season throughout Portland. I love it! •

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 😍

Anyone else dreaming of summertime yet? Because I am 😂  it's our first winter in Maine in the longest time and I must say I'm very much missing the sunshine and warm weather of California right about now 😭

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}

Because sometimes mama needs some alone time 👌🏻😂 after a crazy busy past few days, I’m so happy to be spending this next hour in the tub, enjoying some much needed silence...well, until the munchkin wakes up from her nap and ruins it 😂 #momlife how are you de-stressing from the holidays? •

Friday Confessions

Happy Friday everyone! Is anyone else SO happy that it’s finally the weekend? This week has been crazy stressful around here. I am more than happy to say goodbye to it and enter into weekend mode. It’s been so bad. I haven’t done a Friday Confessions post in a while and since this week was so crazy, I thought this would be the perfect time to do another one. I warn you ahead …

Friday Confessions

I confess that I really don’t like military life.

I confess that I love watching my husband get ready for work in the morning…it’s quite attractive.

I confess that I sometimes pretend to be asleep when I’m watching him get ready so he doesn’t think I’m creepy.

I confess that I eat ice cream straight from the carton (but only when I’m in …

Weekend Reading | From The Archives Round 2

Hooray for weekends!  I hope you all had an amazing week.  Mine was pretty chill and uneventful for the most part.  Just a lot of work to get done.  This post is going to be short and simple because honestly, this week has been crazy and I had nothing planned for today.  I actually debated on just not posting today at all, but ultimately decided I had to.  I can’t just post …

Weekend Reading | From The Archives

It’s the weekend!  Kind of.  It’s the weekend for most people.  I, however, usually work throughout the weekend so I don’t see myself really doing anything super exciting.  On the bright side, I’m working on a TON of blog maintenance this weekend, so even if you don’t necessarily notice a difference on your end, just know that everything is much more organized and looking better on my end.

Five On Friday | Weekly Happenings

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful week!  It’s been busy around here lately and I realized I really haven’t posted much about anything that’s going on here.  You all know Zack is overseas, but other than that, I really haven’t been sharing too much about life.  So today I just wanted to catch up with you all!

I got business cards!

I’m so excited about this, guys!!   …
