Anyone else out there obsessed with planners? Any one else sick of buying planners, only to find that you hate the format? I have a PILE of planners I have tried out and stopped using after a week or two. Imagine my absolute GLEE when I realized that there are planner companies out there that offer FREE downloads of their planners, so that you can
“Lord, have mercy!” I meant to take a blogging break back in March. A SHORT blogging break. It has been SIX MONTHS! So what the heck has been going on with me? There is a lot of change going on here at my house! Let’s see: Son #3 (out of 4) left for Furman University (ROLL DINS!) in August. Son #4 (out of 4)
CURRENTLY I am loving…that we have our 5th wedding anniversary on the 2nd. I am feeling…cold. I am eating…a lot of eggs made in my new omelet maker. I am drinking…a lot of wine. I am watching…Married at First Sight, and I am really ticked off at the finale. I am reading…”Blueprints” by Barbara Delinsky I am listening…to a lot of classical music. The Carolina
I have been a total blog slacker so far this year. I took a break for the holidays. As many of you know, my husband has been working in Saudi Arabia since July 2013, and gets to come home for two weeks every three months. I have a son who is a cellist, who is graduating from the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts
Who is ready for the holidays??? I am personally freaking out. I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is in two weeks! I have been sitting down with my planner, making my menu, shopping lists, and cooking schedules. I am certainly not a graphic artist, but I have put together a collection of printables for my 2015 Holiday Planner, that I have created in a Happy Planner.
I have been on the quest for the perfect planner for as long as I can remember. I am one of those planner/list/office supply junkies. You name it, I have tried it! I can even justify my planner purchases now by having a blog and reviewing them! I have finally narrowed down all of the elements that I need in my perfect planner, and
I have been obsessed with planners since I can remember. Lists, calendars, routines, schedules…I drive my husband insane. There are a few qualities that I have finally realized are necessary to me in a binder (not that I can actually find them all in the same binder): A monthly calendar A weekly spread A daily page for my bullet journal The capability to add and
Last week I was talking about what a disaster my summer has been, and that it is time to Get it Together.. I realized that my schedule and routines and plans had gotten so bad that I didn’t even know where to start getting myself and my family back in line. Have you ever felt like that? One thing I try to do on a regular
Am I the only one who makes plans every summer…and then doesn’t follow through with any of them? I was going to clean and organize my house from top to bottom, go on college visits with my teenaged sons, spend time at the lake, lose 40 lbs, , go to the flea market every week, get my puppy fixed and obedience trained…I could keep going.
Weather: WOO HOO!! The warm weather seems to finally be here to stay! Eating: way too many Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas Drinking: I LOVE my mojitos made with my favorite Don Q Mojito rum, Sprite Zero, lime and mint from my garden. Watching: I have been binge watching Justified on Amazon Prime…I am on Season 6. Reading: I am liking this book a lot. My drawers
I really love doing the Photo A Day Challenge from Fat Mum Slim! It makes me take more pictures, and it’s fun! From the website: CAN YOU TELL ME A BIT ABOUT PHOTO A DAY? Photo A Day started in January 2012. Every month I create a unique list of daily prompts and people all over the world take a daily photo, using the list
Weather: temps in the 70’s, but too much dang rain! Eating: Whole 30 Drinking: a gallon of water a day with Clight (piña colada and mango flavors!)…and an occasional mojito! Supplementing: Plexus, of course! ( Slim, Accelerator, BioCleanse, ProBio and XFactor) Exercising: following the UltraFit program and working out four days a week at Workout Anytime with my trainer, Laura! Thinking about trying Couch to
Whew! My weekend was not very relaxing! I am excited about my new project I was working on, though..some friends and I are starting a new weight loss blog…SkinnyBet! It is going to be a lot of fun. You will be able to win money and prizes, we will have a supportive Facebook group, monthly challenges, a photo challenge, and daily posts. Go over
This is my second year buying a Hobonichi Planner. Last year it was harder to get one, and the website was SO confusing. Well, it is in Japanese. After using the Google yen to dollar converter to make sure I wasn’t about to charge $300 to my debit card, I pretty much had to cross my fingers and pray that I ordered the right thing.
I have a planner obsession that goes way back. I have tried, and spent a lot of money on, every planner system or gadget that has come out since the late 1980’s. Franklin Planner, Filofax, Palm Pilot, Blackberry, MomAgenda, Erin Condren, Martha Stewart, Levenger…they all have my money. LOTS of it. I am always in the hunt for the perfect planning system, that will finally
I have been reading an interesting series of books. Have you read anything by Rhonda Byrne? She has written The Secret, The Power, The Magic and Hero. Here is the quick and dirty from Wikipedia: The books are based on the law of attraction, which determines the complete order of the universe and of our personal lives through the process of “like attracts like”. The
What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goal /// Johann Wolfgang von Goethe In a famous study (here), only 3% of Harvard University MBA students set goals and wrote them down. While 13% of students in the study had goals that weren’t written down, 84% did not have goals at all. Ten years later
WOW! There is WAY too much going on this week! Not only is Christmas this week, but my husband comes home from Saudi Arabia on Christmas Eve! I am trying to keep up with my Fat Mum Slim Photo Challenge: I have been busy trying to plan my Christmas activities: I finally caved and got an Elf on the Shelf… …and I downloaded an adorable
The blog posts you may have missed this week are: Organize Your Holiday Season With a Holiday Planner! December 2014 Julep Maven Box What I’m Reading Time to Order Holiday Cards!

Does anyone else already have holiday lists everywhere? I have been making menu lists, gift lists, to do lists…and then I remembered that I had made myself a Holiday Planner last year! Time to get that baby back out! There are several sites I went to to download the pages in my planner: I Heart Organizing The Project Girl Clean Mama Organizing HomeLife The first
Some of these assignments for my 30 Day Blog Challenge have been pretty easy. Even if I didn’t have the information at hand, it has been pretty easy to come up with it. A Bucket List? Didn’t have one. I know I probably should , but no. I started googling “bucket list”, but most of the things people have on theirs hold no interest for
I love my planners…I am always in the hunt for the perfect planning system, that will finally put my life, and my brain, in order. My husband has been working in Saudi Arabia since July of 2013, so I have a lot on my plate. I don’t have a traditional job, but I homeschool our 13 yo, I have a blog about the 1880 Victorian
It really is sad that a new planner can make me so happy. I am such a geek…and so horribly ADD. Just ask my poor husband. If I don’t have my calendar and lists, I am utterly lost. I have found that the best system for me is a combination of a calendar/planner and a Bullet Journal. THIS planner looks to be my Holy Grail
