Plan With Me – Last FULL Week in February and President’s Day

Hey guys! Welcome to another episode of Plan With Me! What is this? A vlog or a blog?! Haha. Well, I’ve thought about putting Plan With Me videos up on YouTube instead of writing about them and taking photos but this seems to actually work better for me. At least until I get my tripod for my camera.

Anyway, not only is this the last full week in February, it is also my last week on maternity leave. Insert completely sobbing emoji here. Seriously, it sucks but I am incredibly grateful that I got 18 long weeks home with my baby girl instead of the 8 that I got with my son. I guess I am just not ready to go back to work. Oh well, just a few more months until this is more of a permanent situation!

There isn’t a whole lot going on for this week but I am trying to just get things done with this blog and around the house. When I go back to work, I won’t have a lot of time for planning (the decorative kind lol) and for cleaning the house! But then again, there should be less learning to do if no one is ever home, right? I am probably going to be proven very wrong. Let’s see how this unfolds.

President’s Day meant a day off for the hubs. We decided to take the kids to the ImagineU museum and let little man explore. It was actually a really great day despite the rain. As you can see by the little umbrella and rain boots, it was rainy. And yes, I am talking about Monday because it is currently Wednesday and I still have yet to post this on the blog. We also ended up going to the Outlet Mall to hit up the Nike outlet but I didn’t find anything good. Then we were off to Carter’s where they were having a 50% off the entire store sale! Since little Miss likes to grow too fast, it was the perfect opportunity to get her some clothes! Babies just grow way too fast.

Anyway, let’s talk about the actual planner related things! I seriously had issues decorating my planner this week. I chose some craft paper, cut it out, and even glued it all where I wanted it. Turns out, I hated the color and I didn’t want it there anymore. So, I took it all off and I literally started over. Normally, I wouldn’t do such a thing because there would be risk of tearing the pages and that just wouldn’t work very well, now would it? Well, it did this time!

I took it all apart and just started going in with a new color scheme and this seemed to have worked out better for me. A lot of stickers worked better in The Happy Planner sticker packs and I used a few more OnceMoreWithLove stickers. I seriously love that shop.

That’s pretty much it!! I hope you enjoyed the photos!!

Plan With Me – Valentine’s Day and Date Nights

dsc_0058_fotor Plan With Me - Valentine's Day and Date Nights

Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Yes, I finally have a post going up on a Tuesday (even though I prefer Mondays) instead of Thursday! Better to have my PWM posts in the beginning of the week and not the end.

Anyway, I was pretty excited about this spread for the week! No washi tape was used this time. Just craft paper and stickers. As I am sure you have noticed over the past few weeks, I am a huge fan of the floral prints. So, I was super excited to use the gorgeous rose craft paper I have in this week’s spread. It was just perfect for all of the pink I was going to use for the week. dsc_0058_fotor Plan With Me - Valentine's Day and Date Nights

As for most people who have kids and work (just assuming), we are going out this weekend. Friday to be exact. A friend of ours offered to watch the kids and it’s going to be nice. I put a bottle of wine and a wine glass on there but let’s be honest…we are going to go to the gym together without the kids! That’s the first part of our date! Hey, we take what we can get. We didn’t go on all too many dates after our son was born but now that we have two kids, it’s a little more difficult to get a sitter! Plus, little girl is still on the ta-tas.

We have another birthday party this weekend for a sweet, little one year old and on Valentine’s Day, a close friend of mine is moving to Japan. I am pretty sad about it. Her kids both are 5 weeks older than both of my kids. And we had recently gotten pretty close. This is the Navy life. And I should get used to it. I mean, it’s been almost 5 years already and I have seen friends come and go. But when I am out of the military, it will be interesting to see how I deal with friends leaving. I am wishing my friend and her family the best of luck, safe travels, and who knows…we may see each other again! The Navy isn’t THAT big! 😛

Well, that’s about it for this weekly spread! I am in my second to last week of maternity leave and then I will be headed back to work. There might be more in the planner…or less. Who knows?! But I will take these next few weeks and enjoy them because I know I am going to cry when I go back to work! haha.

Plan With Me – February 5-11

dsc_0042_fotor1 Plan With Me - February 5-11

Hey folks! It’s time for yet another “Plan With Me” post. Funny thing is, it’s Thursday and the week is almost over. But I had to try and post some photos anyway!!

I did actually find the time to decorate my Happy Planner and it was fun. It’s a big week in my life….

dsc_0042_fotor1 Plan With Me - February 5-11

MY SON TURNS TWO. Insert all the feels and the tears. That is precisely how I am feeling at the moment! It’s really great watching him grow up but it’s still so sad seeing him go form a baby to a toddler. And we are celebrating his birthday with an “un-party” if you will. It’s basically just a big play date and food for everyone. I went ALL out last year for his first birthday and I really don’t feel like doing that again to be honest.

To me, the first birthday makes a lot of sense to go all out. Having themes and crazy decorations and everything just makes sense. But then again, growing up, I didn’t really have a lot of themes or large birthday parties either. I vaguely remember a 7th birthday party in the basement of my house where we bobbed for apples and played pin the tail on the donkey…but I don’t really remember any parties after that. They were more of a, “You can have 3 friends over. There’s pizza and cake.” Turned out just fine, actually!

This week was also the beginning of the 2nd phase in my 12 week fitness program. Didn’t know I was doing a program/challenge? Oh yeah, that’s because I still need to write about it! Oops! I’ll get to that soon.

I had to add the little superhero munchkin in there to help motivate me. 3 weeks down and 9 more to go! Unfortunately, I spent one of those weeks sick and just didn’t end up working out but it turned out okay!! I still saw some changes.

Man, I really need to do an update on that, huh? Hopefully next week I’ll have some goodies on here.

As for the rest of my life, there isn’t much. I’ve decided to do more documenting in my planner. Like, on Monday I drank a lot of coffee and really needed it while I vacuumed every room in the house. Maybe I’ll add a photo at the end of the week to this post as an “add-on” to recap what happened during my week.

I tend to take my PWM photos “before the pen” because:

  1. I think it looks cleaner to see more white space.
  2. I hate my handwriting.

But here’s the rest of the photos. I hope you enjoy! And yes, there’s a tiny human hand pointing at some stickers in my planner. He’s such a good helper.

Stickers are from The Happy Planner sticker packs and OnceMoreWithLove shop on Etsy. Scrapbook paper is from Hobby Lobby and the washi tape is from Michaels or Hobby Lobby. I keep tape for so long I don’t remember where they come from!

Plan With Me: Jan 30 – Feb 4 and Monthly View

 

On Saturday morning, I was up fairly early with my kids. They both decided that it would be fun to wake up early and keep mommy from getting rest. I was sick and later on during the weekend, they got sick too. Or vice versa. I don’t know who got who sick. But we were all sick. It wasn’t fun! Anyway, my husband was home so I took advantage of some alone time by working in my planner.

I texted that exact sentence to one of my planner friends. I sent her a photo of my planner and she loved it. Well, beauty is in the eye of the beholder! haha!

I really don’t mind how my planner turned out but I guess I was just so excited about how the past two weeks turned out that I was hoping this week was going to be pretty amazing as well.

I used (of course), a bunch of the happy planner sticker packs and other easy stickers I already had. I used this little sticker kit from Sunday Palm. I got this kit in a huge pack of stickers I got from someone in Planners Gone Wild. I don’t know if the easy shop exists anymore but if you come across it, let me know!

There really isn’t much to report. Not a lot going on this week. But it’s cute. haha.

Also, those stickers on the left in the pockets of the binder are from one of my FAVORITE shops! OnceMoreWithLove <3 Little Munchkins are the best!

I even worked on my monthly view for February. The funny thing about the sticker kit I used…I was able to use it in 4 different places!

My classic happy planner (weekly)
My mini happy planner
My classic fitness planner

My classic happy planner (monthly)

Plan With Me – 2017

So, I have been “planning” for majority of my life. But this past year I discovered The Happy Planner and I dove into a whole other world of planning.

This whole decorative planning got me super excited and it’s one of the crafty things that I do that I enjoy. I get to combine memory planning as well and that’s a lot like scrapbooking! Stickers, scrapbook paper, washi tape, the works! It’s fun and kind of relaxing.

I am not the best at this whole decorative planning thing, but I thought it would be fun. 🙂

So whenever I finish a week of planning, or if I think about taking photos while I am working on my weekly spread, I am going to post it in here. The idea is to have a new blog post every week. We shall see how this goes!! 🙂

For now, here is my monthly and weekly spread for the first week of January!!
