it’s like waiting for Christmas…


I am completely out of my mind excited for June 12th.  And I am not the only one.  Everywhere I turn around, someone is promoting and pumping up the date JUNE 12th!!  You know why?  Because the Erin Condren Life Planners for 2014-2015 are being revealed.  


Wanna check out the hype?

I am thinking we should have an Erin Condren Life Planner Ordering Party.

Do you know how hard it is for me to make a decision on the design of my planner?  Last year, I decided that I would go with the one that grabs me first.  And not look back.  I have a new plan.  I am going to mull over my decision like I used to do.  Because that is half the fun.  Being a designer.


Now, I am fully aware that I am weird and obsessive about my family planners.  I am.  It’s almost a sickness.  I buy purses and bags ONLY if they fit my planner.  Because, it must be with me.

And that is why I justify these.  I love them.  They stick with me through thick and thin.  And you’ve heard before, there will be no commitment from me unless I consult my planner first.  We are BFF’s.


They aren’t cheap.  It is a small investment for 12 months.  And it keeps you organized.  And it’s a ton of fun.  I think you will love them.  I wish I sold them.  Actually, I wish I had created them.  Can’t wait for June 12th!!!  


One of my absolute favorite blogs is highlighting the planners TODAY and will be giving away 20 of them!!!  You should check it out!

(And now I need to go mark in my planner for June 12th.  Sorry world, I will not be available that day.  It’s just me, my coffee mug, computer, and well…4 kids—maybe I’ll let them sleep in that day?)


oh no—not again!!!


I’ve got to hand it to my friends.  They are always looking out for me.  Any chance to continue my shopping and “good deal finds” addiction.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!  Meanwhile, Steve is saying “No, no, no—stop the madness!!”  HA!

I have a mild love affair with Zulily.  Remember my $22 coats?  I love them and have worn them both enough times already to make it worth it.  I am still contemplating if the mustard yellow one looks ok with my blonde hair.  Still yet to be determined…  And my most recent purchase arrived at my door step just yesterday.  I have been searching and searching for a rug for under my dining room table.  They are not cheap as you know if you’ve ever bought rugs.  But THIS one, was so reasonable and is just about perfect for my style.  SCORE!!  Zulily rocked another one.  And it’s huge.  Like you can scoot your chair back huge—which is not what I was expecting.  Steve and I just looked at it trying to figure out if this is really what we want.  And I’m pretty sure it is.  I just need him to lift my table onto it after we get it to lay flat.


I also love The Plaid Barn.   It’s one daily deal.  Sometimes I love it—and sometimes I don’t because I am NOT a crafter.  But if you are, you need to sign up!!

Now, I’ve been doing a great job of keeping things in check.  Online shopping is just about the greatest thing ever invented.  Truly.  And if my girls were still baby girls (sniff, sniff) I would be having the time of my life with all of the absolutely adorable holiday outfits–and now the Christmas themed green and red chevron dresses and ruffles—-oh my, it all I can do to not have another baby.  I am kidding.  Really. (Steve just got a shiver down his spine). I can think of a few little baby girls I could just dress up.  Maybe that’s a better option?!

So, I get this text from a sweet friend, who just happens to have some adorable little girls I could dress up, THANKS CASEY!!!  And she leads me to another daily deal shopping site.  Oh my goodness gracious.  This one is so awesome it overwhelmed me.

Chevron Table Runner with Burlap Ruffle – LAST CHANCE ! HOT BUY

THIS is what I am loving right now from JANE.  I have not sat Steve down to tell him how great of a business investment this would be for holiday gatherings.  I’m sure he will agree.  JANE has got some of the neatest things–and a WIDE variety of different items—women’s and children’s clothing, home décor, and fun things like these Chevron table runners.  What can I say?  I am a sucker for Chevron–mixed with Christmas?  Oh my.  I am hooked.  I LOVE this site.  And I think I will be anxiously awaiting every morning the email to show me the day’s deals.

And if my addictions are not enough—I feel compelled to share once again, a fun little website that I am no doubt addicted to Pinterest Told Me To.     This is seriously so much fun.  When I finally “tried” her advice and ordered some of her must haves, I now trust her completely.  Now, obviously not everything that she recommends is going to work for everybody.  She is ITTY BITTY!!  So, I have to be careful because what looks amazing on her, is going to look different on me.  But she gives you a guide for if you should order a size down or up, etc.  It is fun.  I am SO NOT a fan of selfies of my self, but would like to show you my favorite Must Have Outfit that I got from the Pinterest Told me To site…

The best thing about this outfit is that everything can be worn with other things. So it’s a closet workhorse. The boots? I wear almost every day. Ask Steve. He has been struggling with the black/brown combo—but that’s a conversation for another day. And the white shirt works with ever color of scarf you can come up with. Black jeans? That’s obvious. And the scarf—comfy and a neutral accessory for so many things. Ok. I’m done.
