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 😭

Anyone else dreaming of summertime...

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? •

Baby Bartlett Is Here!

Super quick post, but I just wanted to tell you all that she’s here!! She’s finally here and in our arms!

On Sunday, May 28th at 6:41am, I gave birth to a beautiful and healthy baby girl. We named her Allison Elizabeth Bartlett and she’s absolutely perfect in every way. She was born at 7 pounds, 11 ounces and is 20 inches long. Perfectly healthy in every way. Words cannot describe …

38 Week Bumpdate

We’re so close!! How is it even possible that we’ll be holding our daughter the week after next?! Maybe even sooner (although hopefully not later). I couldn’t possibly be more excited right now. I’m hoping these last couple weeks go by super fast! Originally my next (and final) bumpdate was going to be at the 40 week mark, but honestly I’m hoping to not be pregnant anymore by …

My NON-Maternity Wardrobe Must-Have’s

Even before I got pregnant, I was very against ever having to purchase maternity clothes. Call me crazy or “unrealistic” or ridiculous. But maternity clothing just isn’t cute to me. Maternity clothes are big and it’s not attractive and most of all, it’s expensive. It’s just as expensive as regular clothing, if not more so it’s insane to me to even think about buying a whole new wardrobe when you’d only be wearing …

32 Week Maternity Photos

This isn’t the post I had planned for today, but after a super successful maternity photo shoot last week, I just couldn’t wait to share them with you! I am SO in love with how they turned out. I had been wanting to do maternity photos for a while now, but being so uncomfortable in my body, I’ve been putting it off. This week I decided to do birthday photos for my 25th …

32 Week Bumpdate

Yay updates! Isn’t it weird that I only have maybe two more updates before the baby’s born?! Three posts from now, it’ll be her birth announcement. That’s insane! I know I say that with every update, but this pregnancy is literally flying by. It’s been a rather quiet past month around here so I feel like there isn’t too much to update you all on. But here it goes!

HOW FAR ALONG:

Gender Reveal: Baby Bartlett Is A…

Last Thursday, we had the long-awaited anatomy ultrasound appointment. I was hoping to have this appointment before the holidays, but I’m really glad my doctor made me wait until 20 weeks because we got to see so much of our little one. Leading up to the appointment, the only thing I was concerned about was whether it was a girl or boy. It wasn’t until we arrived at the hospital that I realized …

Prenatal Yoga Benefits For Expectant Mothers

The moment I found out I was pregnant and had it confirmed by doctors, I knew I wanted to get involved in some prenatal yoga classes. I used to do yoga throughout high school and was beginning to get back into it with my sister before we moved so I was eager to get started again.

Not only was I wanting to join a prenatal yoga class for the health benefits, …
