Oh, hi! Remember me? I promise I did not fall off the face of the earth. December has been a busy month for me and I have had my hands very full. All good, though!

Since we are just about ready to say goodbye to 2016, I thought I’d share some of my favorite things from this year. I always love to see what other people love and thought that maybe you’d all love to see mine!


These are just a few of my favorite things….


Faceplant Dreams

It’s fun when a friend introduces you to a company like Faceplant Dreams. The name is perfect. They are gifts that inspire. Pajamas, slippers, gifts, and more. It is my goal daily to change into my Faceplant Dreams Dream Wear as soon as possible. Don’t judge me, but since I work at home, I have been known to change into them before 5pm. You need to get in on this awesomeness and buy yourself a pair. You’re welcome…. Also! You can save 15% on your first order with TBB15.





Best Damn Race

I’m pretty lucky when it comes to running friends and I hit the jackpot with the folks at Best Damn Race. I’ve run their event in Safety Harbor ever since it started and then became a Best Damn Race Ambassador the following year. I enjoy working with them at events and such just as much as I do running the races. Coming up next are Jacksonville, Safety Harbor, Orlando, and New Orleans. Don’t forget you can save $5 when you register with my discount code NANCIC.  **My code expires for Jacksonville on 12/30. It will still be good for other cities.






You didn’t think I could get through this without sharing my Etsy shop did you? thiscrazylifeDESIGNS has taken on quite a life of it’s own and I am excited for what is to come in 2017. From custom wood signs and decals, to wine glasses, coffee cups, and medal holders, it’s growing weekly! If you happen to visit my little shop in the interwebs from this post, I have a special discount code for you. Use FAVORITE2016 and save $5 on any purchase of $20 or more! As you can tell, I’m feeling very generous these last days of 2016…






Mini-Doughnut Factory

I have yet to actually step foot in Mini Doughnut Factory in Tampa but hubby has brought home sweet heaven in a box from them on multiple occasions. Just yesterday he brought some home and I’m not going to lie… The box was empty by bedtime and there was no guilt at all. My favorite is the Fruity Pebbles and his is the Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Go get yourself some if you’re in Tampa!







A good friend who I’ve known since high school turned me on to the Nerium line of products a few months ago and I have been hooked. As I approach 45 (ugh) and my skin has finally stopped deciding to be so teenage-like, I’ve been more focused on how to the effects of aging like lines, wrinkles, spots, and more. I also am genetically blessed with puffy eyes that have always been hard to mask. I love Nerium so much I signed on as a Brand Partner and now even go make-up free several days a week. I would love to share a sample of the Night Cream and Eye Serum with you, my two favorite items. Comment if you’d like a sample of the magical potion that is Nerium.





Erin Condren

I always have so much going on between regular life, work, my blog, Tampa Bay Bloggers, my Etsy shop, and more… I have to have a place to keep it all organized. As much as I love technology, using a calendar on my phone just does not cut it. I need colorful pens and the ability to cross items off a list as I complete them. I just ordered what will be my third Erin Condren Life Planner and can’t wait to get it in. I am ready to start planning for 2017! If you have not yet bought one and are on the fence, just order one. THEY ARE AMAZING. You can customize them (note, the horizontal layout is the best I think) and they are just so pretty. If you are a new customer, you can save $10 on your first order with this link





Universal Orlando

We went many times this year, thanks to being Annual Passholders. And our anniversary getaway at Cabana Bay Beach Resort was even more fun than the previous year. We are thankful to be just an hour or so away from the parks and can enjoy weekends or quick day trips there. And we LOVE the special events throughout the year like Halloween Horror Nights, Grinchmas, and the Macy’s Parade. Just talking about it, I want to go NOW.

  1. I love the glasses from your etsy shop! They make perfect gifts for yourself or others. A glass of wine and mini doughnuts sounds like a winning combination.
