[ad] Today I am dreaming of Christmas parties. Anyone else? We’re only halfway through the month and we’ve already had more family gatherings than I can count with so many more to go. And Christmas parties in the Bartlett household means photos…lots of photos. But I just didn't feel very photo-ready thanks to my grays (and yes, I had A LOT of grays). So I picked up @zotosprofessional hair color at @sallybeauty and these days I'm feeling gorgeous, confident, and ready to take on the holiday photos. Today on the blog, I'm sharing how I get myself photo-ready as well as what I plan to wear to this year's Christmas party! #MyAgeBeautiful #sponsored #linkinbio

[ad] Today I am dreaming...

I've been a bit MIA lately. Why you may ask? Well, because I've been half on the struggle bus and half working on a rather large project that I've had in draft mode for far too long. And I am SO excited about it. I literally woke up the other day and decided THAT was the day I'd get started on it and I've been hooked on it ever since. If you're a mom in Southern Maine, you won't want to miss this! So be sure to sign up for our email list via the link in my bio so you can be one of the first to know what's going on.

I've been a bit MIA...

Well, it's officially the day Zack and I have been looking forward to for a couple of years now. While we've already unofficially been "moved on" from military life for a couple of months now, today it's official that Zack is no longer an Active Duty Marine and I am no longer a military spouse. The first big chapter of his adult life and our life together has officially ended. It's scary almost when you've been living with all the stability of a lifestyle for so long. A stable job, stable income, health benefits, a home. It's been a challenging couple of months as we get more settled here in Maine and figure out the next step for our little family. But I know we have so much to look forward to in the next year and it's refreshing to know we have the opportunity to start over. I am so proud of this guy and I can't wait to see what the next chapter of our life has in store for us. •

Well, it's officially the day...

This mama is on the struggle bus today. This morning I spent over an hour searching for Allie's sippy cup of milk only to find it in the shower...where I looked 5+ times considering that's where she was playing while I got ready for the day. I then got the incorrect order from Dunkin and to make that even worse, it was pumpkin flavored...and if you know me, you know I cannot stand anything pumpkin flavored so I couldn't even suck it up and drink it (shoutout to @mwhited8195 for bringing me the correct drink order!). Nap time wasn't any better. A solid 40 minutes of crying before Allie finally went down...then she woke up 30 minutes later 🙄 And now I'm scrambling to get everything on my to-do list done so we can officially launch Blogmas tomorrow 😬 It's been a morning and I'm about ready for my own nap at this point. But at least it's Friday? 🤷🏻‍♀️😂

This mama is on the...

It's yet another snow day here in Maine. The last winter I spent here was in 2015 and we maybe had three snow storms all winter. This year, we've had 3-5 just in the last couple of weeks 🙄 I'm already homesick for beautiful and warm North Carolina summers 😔 anyone else here who hates winter? If you need us, Allie and I will be curled up inside with some movies and a never-ending to-do list. #bloggerlife •

5 Shows To Add To Your Fall TV Watch List

5 Shows To Add To Your Fall TV Watch List | Why Hello Lovely

Guys, I haven’t had cable in over a year now. I really thought I wouldn’t miss it, but I did. A lot. Now that we are settling into our new home and have both internet and cable, I can catch up on my favorite shows and check out some new ones that are premiering this season. I finally feel like I’m up to speed with the rest of the world! Here are five tv shows I’m dying to watch this fall that you should check out too.

AMERICAN HORROR STORY | SEASON 6

I am a huge fan of American Horror Story. The only season I wasn’t a fan of was Freak Show, but the rest got me hooked right from the first episode. If you haven’t seen AHS, then basically it’s not your typically tv series. It’s generally the same cast each season, but there’s a whole new storyline. Every character has a new role so it’s almost like watching a whole new show each season. Which is kind of strange, but it’s super interesting to watch and it makes you excited to learn the theme of the following season. It’s also the perfect show to watch this time of year with Halloween being right around the corner.

THIS IS US | SERIES PREMIERE

The previews for this show got me hooked right from the start. Every article I read on the top shows for the fall stated how great the show was and how it would be the next Parenthood. I don’t know about you, but Parenthood was one of my all-time favorite shows. So the moment they compared This is Us to Parenthood, I immediately plugged the premiere date into my iPhone’s calendar so I wouldn’t forget about it although I didn’t have cable yet soooo I missed it).

I finally watched the series premiere over the weekend and I LOVED it. I can’t wait to watch more. It definitely has that Parenthood feel to it.  Very family oriented and the plot twist at the end had me eager to watch more. Watch the first episode and I promise you’ll be hooked!

GILMORE GIRLS

Is anyone else as excited about this as I am?! I couldn’t possibly have bene more excited when I found out it was coming back. My mom and I used to love watching this show together and I still have Netflix marathons of it here and there. Gilmore Girls comes back in late November and I cannot wait for it! The previews are making me more and more ready to find out what happens and reconnect with the characters.

SUPERNATURAL | SEASON 12

Zack and I are huge fans of Supernatural. We started from the beginning again after he came home from Japan and we’re now in the middle of season 7. We’re hoping to be caught up again by the time the new season starts next month. If you’ve never seen this show, then I have no idea where you’ve been the past 10+ years. This show is amazing and constantly keeps you on the edge of your seat. Something new is always happening and it’s full of plot twists. So if you haven’t seen it, then you should definitely spend this season binge watching it! 

DANCING WITH THE STARS | SEASON 23

I had to add in some type of reality show to make this list a little more well-rounded. Dancing with the Stars just came back and I’m super excited for it! I still have yet to start the new season since we’ve been busy with the move, but I’m hoping to get caught up very soon. It always amazes me how these professional dancers turn this “normal” celebrities into professional dancers themselves. There are some that are just plain horrible, but for the most part, so many of them come out of it with some pretty impressive dancing skills. There aren’t too many people on this season that I’m really that thrilled about aside from Jana Kramer, but it’s still a great show and I’m very excited to see who wins!

What are you watching?

XOXO
