It finally arrived!

My Erin Condren Life Planner finally arrived this past Saturday!
I was soooo excited! I absolutely LOVE it! It is so pretty & cute! I have really enjoyed writing in it & filling out my "to do's" for the day. It is total motivation! If you don't have one, you should definitely check them out! You won't be disappointed. I promise. I snapped some pictures the day it came in the mail. I will warn you though, these pictures were taken with my cell phone so they are not the best quality. But, at least you can get some idea anyway.
This first picture is of the cute box that it comes in:
This is a picture of what it looks like as soon as you open the box:
There is a cute welcome/thank you note & also a $10 off coupon!

This is something she adds to your order. I didn't order these. Theses are cute gift labels.
This is a picture of my oh so perfect planner & the markers that I ordered!
This is a pen holder that sticks to the inside back of your planner. I wasted my money on this, because I have yet to use it. I have also yet to use the markers that I bought.
This is the inside of the front cover & the first page. Isn't it colorful! I love it!

So, I'm definitely in love with it. I'm happy with the purchase. However, next time I will not be purchasing the markers or the pen holder. Just the Life Planner. I also want one of the notepads that match your planner. The notepad has adhesive on the back & will stick to the back inside cover of your planner. I wish I would have purchased one instead of the pen holder & the markers. Anyway, you live & learn right?

Getting it Together

I'm super excited that I am becoming closer to starting on my "Family Binder".
I got the tab dividers and business card pages today.
I also got the printouts also.
Now, once I find the binder that I want to use,
I can get started putting it together!
I know it's going to take a while to get everything in order,
but once its all together, boy will it be neat!

You can find these wonderful printouts at I Heart Organizing.
She has super cute stuff. Make sure to check out her
Etsy shop also. That's where
I got these printouts!
I stopped in at my local Hallmark store today &
found this super cute journal.

The front of the journal says Life is Full of Endless Wonders.
Love it!
I can't wait to start writing.

Until next time...

Organization and Such...

     So, as you may know my Erin Condren Life Planner is on its way to my door steps as we speak! (SUPER EXCITED) I have been googling Erin Condren planner reviews & how people use them on Youtube. I have been very pleased at what I've seen so far. I have also been inspired to start my very own "Family Binder". I got my inspiration from Jen at I Heart Organizing. I just purchased my 2" binder & page dividers from Staples. It's so funny how excited & giddy I get about organzing & stationary type things. It's a little ridiculous, but I think its a girl thing! I also found a great website where you can print off daily, weekly, and monthly home to do lists for free!! You can find those here. I can't wait to incorporate these organization strategies in my everyday life. I really need to get better about cleaning and setting goals & actually finishing "To Do" lists. I would love to be one of those women who kept a perfect house, were ubber organized, & cooked every single day. However, I just don't think that's me. At least not yet, I'm working on it. Working weekends definitely helps with me being home all week long. It's perfect because I have the house all to myself..well except for my furbabies. I can't wait to get started on my Journey to Organization. I hope you guys don't mind being bored to death as I document this new journey! haha.

50 Shades of Addicted

     I am addicted to Fifty Shades of Grey... Currently I'm on book #2. I can't put them down once I start reading. Hubby and I were at the beach a few weeks ago, and you wouldn't believe the number of women that were on the beach with one of the Fifty Shades books in their hands! It was crazy.


     Have any of you read the Fifty Shades of Grey books? If so, what did you think?

Anxiously awaiting!

Warning: Girly Girl topic below. Prepare to Bore! Ha.     
    
    
     I have recently jumped on the Erin Condren train! I can't wait for my Life Planner to come in the mail. I check the status of my order every single day. I get so frustrated when I see the status hasn't changed. It has said "printed" for 5 DAYS now, but still hasn't shipped! I'm starting to get a little ill! I understand they are very busy, but goodness, it shouldn't take this long! I ordered mine 2 weeks ago.
     Anyways, I have already decided what colorful pens to by from walmart to use with my planner and have also decided that I'm going to try and color code everything.



Orange-Bills
Green-General Life Stuff
Purple-Appointments
Pink-Holidays/Birthdays
Blue-Work Stuff


     Isn't that exciting?? Haha, I know you're thinking...not really, but I'm totally excited for FedEx to make that delivery at my house! I really hope I enjoy it as much as I'm anticipating it! I've read all kinds of blogs where people talk about how wonderful they are! Hopefully it will encourage me to be more organized and "put together". It was definitely a splurge for a planner, but hey, I couldn't resist. I can't wait till one day when I have a family and I can put a family photo or cute picture of my kids on the front cover! =) The following are pictures I found online of other peoples Life Planners just to give you an idea of how presh they are if you haven't seen or heard of them before!





     Enough with the pictures! I will definitely take some when mine arrives! Woopie! I'm like a kid waiting on Santa Claus... =) How many of you guys already have one and what are your opinions on them? I haven't heard a bad thing about them yet, well except... it takes a little while for them to arrive(hey, they are customized) and people say they are pretty big and hard to fit in a purse(apparently they haven't seen my purse suitcase). That is all my rambling for now!
