Allie's second snow day and we're most certainly spending it indoors this time.  Allie's been off playing with her toys all morning and this mama has been confined to the couch getting an insane amount of work done. Anyone else feel super stressed this time of year? Thanksgiving is just a few days away and then we're immediately thrown into Christmastime and I'm not sure I'm fully ready for it 😂 between updating last year's holiday content, creating new content for December, and scheduling out all the social media for the next month, I feel like my to-do list is never-ending and none of this will ever get done. But as of right now, I feel like I'm in a pretty good place 👌🏻 anyone else taking full advantage of this Monday morning? Let me know what you're up to in the comments!

[ad] I'm a girl who loves a good manicure so I love to save time and money by doing my nails myself at home. Between constantly typing on my computer, cleaning the house, and chasing a toddler my nails really taking a beating. Because of this, my “manicures” tend to last me maybe 24 hours if I’m lucky. At that point, I was doing my nails on the daily and ain’t no mama got time for that! This week I'm sharing my love for @cndworld and my top tips for getting a flawless manicure from the comfort of your own home! #CNDVINYLUXatRA #sponsored •

50 Photos To Take In Baby’s First Year

50 Photos To Take In Baby's First Year | MainelyKeating.com

How is it even possible that we’re coming up on Allie’s first birthday here in a couple months?! That’s just so crazy to me. They’re not lying when they say the first year goes by so quickly. It really does.

Now that we’re coming up on her first birthday, I’m looking back on the thousands of photos I’ve taken of this little girl in the last (almost) year. You constantly hear negativity surrounding millennials and how we’re all “addicted” to our phones, but in all honesty, my iPhone has captured more memories than I can list. It’s captured Allie’s first time crawling, her first trip to Disney, pumpkin picking, playtime with Jack and her daddy, and thousands of smiles and laughs. My iPhone and various memory cards for my Nikons are 95% Allie at this point and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

It can be so easy to get busy and caught up in the moment when you have little ones running around and that’s totally okay! It’s so important to be present and really soak up that time you have with your kids when they’re little. But I also find it to be so important to take a step back sometimes and snap a photo. So here are 50 photos you ‘ll want of your little one’s first year!
