SIMPLE Writers Bullet Journal | 2019 Set Up

I’r also going to be giving you Guys a little recap, because I do bimonthly goals on this blog of how I Did on my goals for November and December, and what I am looking to do for January and February alright, so first thing I did when setting up my bullet Journal for 2019 was to make sure I had all the materials I wanted, and so I’m Just going to briefly list them here, and they will be in the description below as Well, if you want to check them out, but first of all, I love using the Sharpie Fine lighter pens that they are my absolute favorite and you’re going to see.

That they just write really well and really stick out on the page. And then my Favorite highlighters are the mild liner highlighters and you can see they come In a variety of colors – and I actually use them for most of my banners and Different things like that, so you’ll see what those look like. Then I have some Sticky notes that I wanted to get in sort of matching pastel colors to my Notebook a ruler and last of all my notebook, which I originally got from Barnes & Noble, but I did find on Amazon.

So if you’re looking to get something Like this, they have a bunch of different patterns. You can check that out again in The description below ok, so, let’s see what is inside my bullet journal, so First thing: we’re going to see it’s just a simple 2019 welcome, page I eventually want to put my word of the year here, which I’m still trying to Figure out, if you guys have any suggestions, let me know in the comments But one thing I do want to say, as we proceed, is I’m pretty minimalistic when It comes to and below journal I like it to be really clean.

Obviously I love Colors, but I keep it pretty simple and I also keep it simple so that it’s easy to Update and I don’t have to spend hours and hours on each spread. So if that Sounds good to you definitely keep reading, because I just make it really Simple and really clean and really easy to keep up throughout the year, then, as We go to the next page. You would usually see an index here because you’ll usually Have just different spreads like daily and weekly and monthly spreads sort of Interspersed with all these other kinds of spreads, but what I actually do is I Put all of those different spreads in the back, and I start from the back and Go forward so I’m going to show you this at the end, but what I like to keep is Just my planning pages, my like monthly, weekly yearly kind of pages, I have to be Getting sort of going straight through without other spreads sort of going in Between so you’ll see how that functions in a minute, but first of all I have my Future log, and so I just have it the different months – sort of set up with Just major events or holidays, so I can keep track of the year.

Also on these Pages I have little markers for just tracking my social media stuff’s on Instagram YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and my newsletter, and I just want to track Throughout each month, how many followers or subscribers I have for each social Media platform and then next I have my first monthly spread and so you’ll see Here that I have this first page, that is just the events of the particular month.

And what I also like to do is use this as like a Thanksgiving. This was supposed To say Thanksgiving but, like I thinks, giving our gratitude page And sort of highlight the major things that happen throughout the month, so for Example on Monday put that I hit 900 subs on YouTube. So thank you. Everybody So much for subscribing and helping me get to 900 subscribers so fun, but those Are the kind of things that I sort of put in here and Different events, like my dad’s 60th birthday and all that Jess, then over Here on this page, I sort of separate my goals into author and, like business Goals because I do some side business stuff, but then also personal goals and If you’ve been on my blog for a while, you’re, probably wondering hey, don’t you Do bimonthly goals – and I do I just forgot to create that page first So it actually comes a little bit later, so I’ll show you that afterwards, but I Also take those bimonthly goals and separate them into the monthly goals.

So That’s what this page is: you’ll also notice that we’re about halfway through The month and I haven’t checked off a bunch of things, but I usually wait to Sort of go through and check off these things until I’ve been through the whole Month I go back here and I do like a little review. The next thing I include In succession are just the week’s spreads and I sort of do daily stuff, Within each week, so at the beginning of the week I will put my author fiscals Slash personal goals, sort of up here and then progressively as it fills out.

I Will do Monday and then Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday Friday, it’s sort of Like whatever fits where so, I can do it progressively and I don’t have to like Waste space and then I just set up the next week – and you can see here again That I keep it super simple, I’m just using my highlighter to highlight the Banners and then I just use little circles instead of checkboxes. I also try To set my priorities so you’ll see here I have some little stars and I use those Stars to sort of mark the things that are top on my priority for either the Week or the day and to sort of say hey if I get nothing else done, if I get Those things done, then I’ve been a success today, so usually I’ll have about Two or three per day, and also if I don’t get to something I put a little line – With a little arrow, just telling me that I need to push it off to you, the next Day now, this next spread is my January February bimonthly goals and I wanted to Tell you guys what I did and what I didn’t do in November and December, but Before we get there, I did promise that I was going to show you what spreads I’m In the back here and so here again I have my index and then the following: Pages, I have different spreads so this spread.

I have spread ideas so, as I see Other bullet articles or get ideas. I sort of list ideas, Of spreads that I can do in the future and then the ones I’ve done so far are Like a writing and author calendar, so I wanted to sort of see the year at a Glance and see just different events that are happening that pertain to Authors or writers, and sort of either work my content around that or work. My Schedule around those things, the next few pages are for my author platform.

Mostly for content, brainstorming and planning – and it just makes it so much Easier for the rest of the year, so this first spread is my content. Brainstorming, Page and so obviously I’ve blocked a lot of stuff off because they don’t want to Give too much away, but I listed out a bunch of YouTube like article types that I Could do or topics I could do and then I also made a list of people. I’d love to Collab with this year and just general article ideas, there are like more specific Than these, and for any of you, all they’re tubers out there, if you’d, like Me to do a article that sort of lists out more of these kind of ideas, so that you Can get ideas? Definitely let me know – and I can do that.

The next page is a Content. Calendar for the year specifically for YouTube, but everything I do sort of Blogs and instagrams sort of revolves around what I do for YouTube. So I didn’t Want to give too much away again, but I did try to plan at least four ideas for Every month, so that’s what sort of penciled in in here and then I write Them in pen as I do them, the next spread is best of author to 2018, so this was Sort of part of my planning, where I sort of went back and looked at my top search.

Terms and presented readed and different things like that. To help me Plan for the new year, then, I am also a Christian and I very Much believe in the power of prayer, so I wanted to have a prayer request spread Here and then you guys saw this in a previous article, but I just made my General 2019 goals here I also did a spread about just my routines daily Weekly and monthly that pertain to author stuff and more author platform.

Stuff and then my last fret here is my TBR and log for the year, because one of My goals is definitely to read a whole more and so obviously I have a bunch of Other books that I want to read, but I just started off with a few and I’ve Already completed cinder this January, so that was a really good read and I’m Excited to sort of add to this list and keep reading as well sort of check them. Off as I go and sort of log how long it’s taken me to read as well.

Finally, as Promised I just wanted to give you guys a little recap. I do this to keep myself Accountable, but also to inspire you guys for what I got done in November in December and what I want to get done in January in February, And obviously this is from a different bullet journal, so you couldn’t just Ignore this is supposed to be for November and December of 2018 yeah. These Are the things I got done? I won NaNoWriMo.

I started working with my cps For my work in progress for draft, I wanted to read at least one book a month. I’r actually read for I wanted to post one YouTube article a week and I actually Checked this off, but there was one week that I didn’t cuz. It was just a little Crazy during the holidays, but for the most part I did that we hosted the Nanowrimo house Cup in the plotter life writers, Facebook group, which was so much Fun I released one newsletter each month and I also launched my author website.

Services what I didn’t get done, I didn’t get to prepare for betas that I wanted To in January, but I’ll give you an update over here in a second, I wanted to Hit 1000 subscribers by New Year’s on YouTube. I didn’t hit that, but, like I Said before I just passed 900, so I think maybe this month, maybe next month that Would be awesome, and I had certain Instagram, Twitter and Blog goals, but just with everything else, I wasn’t as consistent with that.

So I Definitely want to get better at that for this next round for this January and February, these are my goals, separated into categories so for writing. For January I want to finish rounds with my cps and then in February. I want to edit My draft, based on that feedback and prep it for betas, hopefully to start that in March, yes, I still want to make this then for reading. I want to read at least one Book a month and in here I will put the two books one for January, one for February here so I can log that then for author.

Which actually already did so? I should be checking that off. I want to figure Out batching routines, so maybe batching enough content for two months at a time. Ooh, that’s a big one. Then these were the other things that I didn’t do the last Two months that I just want to do at least one post on Instagram a week, but I Do stories like pretty much every day, Twitter, at least once a day, and I want To blog at least once a week with a Pinterest post, then for my website, Newsletter, I want to do one newsletter a month.

Social Media Planners – eClincher VS Hootsuite

These are two social media platform planners. What is a planner when you start getting bigger in your business, and you have more than one social media platform where you’re posting there are planners out there, where you can actually sit down in one day and plan out all your posts for the month or for The week or, however, you want to do it, each planner comes with different features, so today we’re going to compare each clincher and HootSuite, and I have a bonus for you today, I’m going to give you the name of the app that I use to compare these And you can plug in any social media planner in there and do your own research, because there’s lots of different ones and I’m not going to sit here and tell you, which is the right one for you.

So let’s go ahead and get started. Let’s look at e clincher and HootSuite now, like I said yesterday, I showed you I’m going to give you a quick review of what a planner is. Basically you go in. You make a post, you tell the planner where you want to post it. You pup. You add your own accounts and then you can plan them and I’m just going to show you real quick. How easy it is you can schedule, it comes up, asks you what time and then it posted for you.

So it’s pretty much that simple click. Click! Click you’ve got it. The time that you would have involved would be planning your posts, but you can take one post and post it on to 10 different media platforms, and that’s what’s cool about the planner. If you choose, you can save them in a queue like a an organized folder and you can recycle them. So that’s what’s nice about planners now, let’s go ahead and look at each clincher.

I just went in and this is what you really want to look at. Is what are you getting for your money and they have three different plans: basic premium and agency. You can see right here, the different prices and I just went right to their website. You can go in there yourself and look and get a closer view, but you can see there’s a big difference in the money. The biggest thing you want to look at if you’re new is how many profiles can I plan on and that’s the biggest thing and right here for their basic 10 profiles.

Now, if you’re starting to get bigger, you can do 20 and it says 3 users. Some people will hire virtual assistants to go in and do their posting and planning for them. Other people are running their own agency and therefore they can have unlimited. You brands in there and 40 different profiles, so it can get pretty huge depending on what your needs are pretty much. If you scroll down, everybody gets the same thing.

It starts your bottom plan, pretty much. You lose things like media library, CRM integration and team collaboration, and things like that. A little bit of analytics aren’t available to you. But again, if you’re, not a huge agency or you don’t have that many accounts, I think you could probably survive on the basic account for $ 59 a month. Now, let’s look at HootSuite, I have found what I’ve gone into the different plans.

Most of them do. The same thing, honestly, the difference is you’re going to find is: maybe they don’t post on Instagram, for example, where another one will and that’s really what you want to look at besides the money now here, you can get ten social profiles for only $ 29 a Month so there’s a difference you may go in and find they have a 30 day free trial, as opposed to the 14 days. I highly recommend that you go in check out the free trial so that you can make sure it’s the right platform for you, because again there are so many now.

Let’s look at apples, apples. I found this app and I’m going to put give you the link of it down below. It’s called get app and I can plug in any social media platform that I want and then I can compare them so here we have HootSuite. I’r going to take this one off. I had, I did add sprout social, but I’m going to take it off because so we can see there. You can add up to four at a time so today we’re talking about a clincher and HootSuite and you can visit their website.

It takes you directly there and we’re going to scroll down okay. I went ahead and put a social sprout social back in there and I kind of changed my screen for you here, because I want you to see how you can compare just by adding another social media, planner and and figure out which one is best for you. As you can see the overview they’re pretty much the same in what they offer you can use iPhone.

You can go on the web. Android typical customers are all the same support. The only one that’s different is a clincher does not offer phone support. So if that’s important to you write that down do a list of pros and cons and then you can go in and they have screenshots to show you what they look like. So if that’s important to you, how easy are they to use? How easy are they to navigate? You can go into the different ones and see how easy, now that earlier, I showed you a clincher very, very easy to use all right and now we have pricing, and this is when you want to start looking now.

Hootsuite says they start at $ 19, a month, a clinchers, forty-nine and sprout socials ninety-nine. We were just over there at a clincher and I believe it’s already 59, so these may not be totally accurate. Hootsuite was actually 29, so these are a little bit behind in the pricing. What I like about a clincher is: there is no credit card required when you go in and look at the free trial when you go to HootSuite you’d have to give your credit card a lot of people, don’t like to do that.

So if that’s important to you, you might want to take that off your list. All of them have great ratings and, let’s keep going down and again you can see sprout social is losing some of the features as we go and what’s interesting is they’re the most expensive. So there you have it. I want to show you what I use. It’s a lot cheaper and I highly recommend that you look at it. It’s called post, planner and post planner starts out at $ 3 a month.

Now you only get three social platforms, but if you’re just starting out and you’re just trying to get a feel for it, get the three. Do it start out with that three three social platforms get them going, get yourself in the groove for your planning things and then later go up to the $ 9 a month and you have the social 10 social accounts. I have done a article on post planner and how to navigate it.

I actually did a series of four articles. I will go ahead and post the one where I went in and navigate it um, but this will probably do what you need and it’s only three dollars a month or nine dollars a month. Again it depends on what you need. I hope this was helpful, but I am going to give you that app so that you can go in and start looking at all the different social media platforms, the planners and do some comparison on your own.

It’s a big decision so and it’s it’s something that the reason I say it’s a big decision. You don’t want to spend a lot of time, putting all these posts in there and planning them out and the deciding it’s not the right platform for you, because then you got to turn around and do it all over again. So take the time to research go in try out the tre free trials, maybe only post a few things see how you like them, then, when you decide what you want, go in there big time and get a lot of stuff planned and save yourself some time Thumbs up, if this was helpful and subscribe to my blog, I have a article every single day that will help you with your business, whether it’s affiliate, marketing or just working online, alright, and don’t forget to click those links below that’s to help you out with your Social media planner

Finding Planner Peace

I was actually at my friend Ryan’s apartment yesterday, um, I don’t know in this articles going up, but Ryan has his own YouTube blog, which I will link up in the card for you guys he is a man with the plans, and I brought my binder over And we were kind of looking at each other’s planners and whatever, and I have been decorative planning for several years now.

Actually I started a decorative planning when I started my youtube blog. So what like, four or five years – something like that and it’s taken a long time for me to really understand my style and figure out. What makes me happy so we had a discussion about planner piece and if it’s even achievable and all of that stuff. So I wanted to kind of share with you guys my mentality of how I have gotten to the point where I feel like.

I have achieved the planner piece, the illustrious elusive planner piece. So a lot of my journey with planning is centered around the Erin Condren products. I have tried several different things and what I keep going back to is simplicity. For me, I am NOT one of those people that can have four or five different planners. It’s too much for me, my brain doesn’t work that way. I have a very simple life.

I am single, no kids, no partner. I have a dog like that’s it, so I don’t really have that much stuff to track or write down or whatever you know. But there was a time where I was using a couple of different planners for different things, and now everything is in this planner. What I use now is the Erin Condren binder system, and I’m just going to flip through and like talk to you guys, while I’m flipping so yeah, but this has just been working really well for me, oh my little, my little dots are over here.

Here we go, I’ve done several articles on this particular planner. I did put in a just cover because I feel like that helps with you know not ruining these pages, but I did actually end up ordering a neutral planner, because I love the way that the neutral was. But, to be honest, I decided that neutral is not for me and you guys are probably thinking like what Emily you’re like super neutral. Yes, yes, I am, however, I’m super neutral in my like regular daily life.

However, in my planner is like the one place that I can be super colorful and more bold and loud, and it doesn’t cause me anxiety, like color in general, like lots of like big colors, really cause me legit anxiety. So that’s why my home is very neutral. My wardrobe is very neutral, I’m very neutral, however, in here I actually really enjoy it, so it’s kind of like my little outlet, if that makes sense anyway.

Here are these pages. This has where I track my menstrual cycle paydays and then like work holidays, so I mean you could track whatever the heck you want to on there here. I actually just made this not too long ago. I had one of these in my last planner too, and this is like kind of just like projects or things I’d like to do so like I have my entryway living room, half bath garage laundry office, kitchen, dining room, loft master bath bedroom, and then I have An extra one, but just thought that you know this would be kind of cute to put in there and then over.

Here is my first July, a budget that I’ve done. I used to have a erin condren, deluxe monthly planner, and that only has my budget, and that was it. I love the idea of the deluxe monthly planner when I was actually tracking every single dollar that came in and came out, but I don’t do that anymore. I do follow the Dave Ramsey plan and, at the point that I was tracking everything I was, you know paying down debt saving up my six month, emergency and saving for a house so like that was really nice to have like a tangible place to see everything Like the incoming and the outgoing, but now that I’ve already purchased the house, I’m in baby step four and six, because I don’t have kids, so I don’t not doing college savings.

So I just like an overview. That’s just works super well for me, and I decided to do that in the sheet at the very front of the month. So anyways. If you guys want to see any of my budget bud, you don’t want to see any of my budgeting articles I’ll, throw it up and a card for you guys um, but yeah, and then this is the first month. I just wrote down some things, but I never really. I don’t know I don’t know what to do with this page.

This is this is my problem and I know that some people have actually like taped these pages together, so it just flips to the month. I may or may not do that, I’m not sure I mean I might find a use for these two pages at some point, but this is my month of July. That’s already happened and then speaking of planner piece. So, for me, what has worked really well, especially when you’re first starting is don’t buy all the things.

I know that’s so hard to do, because I bought all the things and I ended up not using all the things this is before. I discovered that people had like dedicated a planner, instagrams and people did. Plan with me is on YouTube and I did not know any of that yet so I had already established my youtube blog just a little bit. I had done a few articles and I decided as soon as I started or as soon as I got my first planner, that I was going to start planning articles and I did, and I actually didn’t do any talking at all.

I mean I said like hello and then I would just you know fast-forward through it, and then he like show you all at the end and it was like very, very decorative and I felt like everything needed to have a theme because that’s the only stuff, I Kind of saw online, it was very femi and it inevitably didn’t end up working for me, which really sucked, but that’s okay. Over the years, I have established a love for two major sticker brands that have really worked for me and the first one is coffee, brick planner, which all these little scallop boxes and then all the scripty words are from her and then I also am in love With Christian designs, I feel like the majority – well not in the majority at least half of the stickers in each shop really appeal to me and that just I don’t know it works well with my brain that I can support these two shops by the things I Need and I feel like it all kind of flows well together.

I hope that makes sense for me and a normal like weekly basis. Usually my two or my go-to things are these scallop boxes because I usually will write in things that are happening, and then these are also which I absolutely love, that they are mat removable stickers. So you can actually peel them up so say I didn’t. You know, edit that day I can pull that up and it’s just so easy. I do obviously have other sticker shops too, but I kind of just sprinkle those in where they go and I’m not super dedicated to one shop or another.

In that respect, I do like little icons like this. One is a 110 and a million this ones once more with love. This little dr. Guy is from plan to plan sticker Co yeah. So I mean I love like little things like that. Just to emphasize the event in the box also, these little blobbies are super cute from oh hello, stationery like there’s so many fun things to put in there to kind of, like judge up your planner, if you like that, if you like super basic and all you Want to do is just have different, colored pens like you go, you do your thing.

You know so yeah, that’s kind of like my mentality, like walking through how I lay my stickers down and how I choose what I choose. So this is like the week of July 4th. Clearly this is July 4th right here and then um here is this week, um so yeah. But another thing I really wanted to talk about was that I know there are some people in the planner community that get not necessarily upset, but maybe like a little perturbed if other people copy their style – and I feel like copying or emulating is how people find Their style, so I always take it as a compliment.

If someone’s going to tag me on instagram or send me an email saying: hey, here’s, my first spread or here’s a spread that I just did and I really emulated your style or I copied your style. What do you think or whatever like? I think, that’s amazing, because that’s how you find what works for you, one of my biggest style inspirations, has been Jen plans and I will leave her Instagram down below. If you are interested.

She also has a youtube blog, which I will link for you guys if you see her style, it’s very different than this, but this is kind of how I came to this conclusion. She has a lot more white space than I do typically in her weeks, and she does do some of the decorative icons. But I definitely do a lot more and I did try out her style like exactly for the longest time, and I just figured you know what I love that style.

It really works for me. I, like true times of you, know I work and then I put my washi in and then you know. At the end of the day, I cut my washi and then I put in what’s going on and what’s happening, but for me I wanted a little bit more decoration in mine and some of you may see this and go oh, my gosh. This is so overwhelming. I don’t know how you’re getting anything done and some of you may see this and go.

This is super boring? Yes, oh everyone has a different way of doing things, but finding that person or that account or several accounts, either on Instagram or Facebook or whatever and just kind of using those as like, okay. Well, I’ve never thought of doing it this way, but maybe I should try this and see how it works. For me, in my life you know Jenna and I actually know each other. We’ve met a few times now, but you know she’s a busy mom.

She works outside the home. She is married and also has three kids and a dog, so her life is so different than mine, but I could still take inspiration from what she has done and what has worked well for her style. So I just kind of took her style and revamped it for myself, because that’s really at the end of the day, what you have to do, you have to figure out what works for you and not necessarily worry about what everybody else thinks of your planner.

Your planner is for you and no one else. I, however, really like to make mine pretty I do have you know a blog online. However, I don’t have to share this stuff. If I don’t want to so you know, I just really enjoy sharing it, and I make it pretty because I want to make it pretty. You know I’m not really doing anything for the camera any longer. I’m really doing it because I love it so anyways. This is another week, that’s all filled in I’m going to flip a little bit more here and show you some other things that have really helped me we’re into August already.

Oh my gosh. So this is actually this week. This is today, and hopefully I’m going to get this up sweet so as I went through this week, so these are kind of like the Emily Leigh colors. So I kind of did a little bit of rainbow and then over here is just kind of whatever. But what I have done – and I’ve actually done this – this is how the conversation started with Ryan yesterday is what I have done, and not what I was explaining to him is that I went through the majority of the weeks for the next year and just put In my work and anything else that I knew was happening so like a birthday or like right here, oh I have a giveaway on Monday.

I don’t think this article is going to be up by Monday, but you never know, and I have like a girls night with my friends Megan. I jazz – and you know like there’s stuff in here and like my trash day, there’s stuff in here that I already know that’s going to happen. So if I lay this down, it’s so much easier for me that then, like mentally throughout the week, come upstairs to my office and then like fill in the evenings or anything that needed to happen in the day time or what’s happening in the weekend or what’s Coming up so that’s really helpful for me to like pre-plan at least the things that I know, and even if say this the day of the 8th.

You know I’m off work or something I can lift this up and I can put in something else. It’s not a problem, but my biggest challenge was just starting with a blank page and not even having like my work in there and then it’s like gosh. Now I have to think about what I want to do. I got to think about what theme I want to go with and about a month ago I ended up. I think it was actually the July 4th weekend.

I just was super inspired and started just planning out my weeks and it’s just making my life so much easier cuz. I don’t have to think about it anymore, so yeah, but then like here, I’m going to be on a road trip with my mom like the last half of this, but I am working over here. So yeah it’s just like, let’s just put in the things and then also like, I have other things going on so like I found out that the wild collab sale is going to be the 22nd through the 25th.

So I just kind of put a little sticky in here and then these little sticky notes are from Erin Condren and then I have another planner meetup, which I haven’t put in here yet and yeah. I even put in like all my budgeting things and anything that I know is in here like Labor Day Patriot day I’ll put in, and then you know I’ll, just put in little page markers for the things that are kind of pending ish, like I’m going to Go to state 4 with my mom and all that good stuff.

So yeah, I don’t know, I just think like this is going to work really well for me in the end that I don’t really need to think anymore. Oh maybe that’s the theme of this articles. Like I don’t need to think about it anymore, but I just really like the way that this feels I’m putting in all my paydays, I’m typically putting in laundry clearly. If I don’t necessarily do the laundry that day, I can still lift this stuff up and I could put it somewhere else without an issue.

I still have some weeks that I don’t have anything which is totally fine and you know I’m still consuming products, I’m still buying things, because I can’t help myself, but you know at that point I was like you know, I’m not sure what I want to do For that week, so I just skipped it, and then this one was actually blank until the other day, and I got my simply gilded box, the one with the malls – and this is the Stardust.

What was in there and I’m like this – is beautiful. I love it. So yeah, but I don’t have I’m out of my little work stickers and I haven’t decided which scallop boxes I want to use for this color palette just yet, but clearly I have until September, to figure it out, there’s also a grilled cheese festival in Minneapolis. I’m really excited about that plus there’s going to be one. So you know I want to go to that um, but yeah, but I like got like I’m going all the way into the end, so yeah there’s like a mother Blanc, one here well, this is a little bit.

Funky um here is like a little spooky one for you know, October and then into the next month. I’ve only done this, but this is like the actual Halloween Day, but yeah. So I mean I’ve obviously put like my dog’s monthly meds, that kind of stuff. You know like this is just like helping my mind work and I hope that this might help. One of you know, hopefully one of you out there, maybe the several of you.

I don’t know, but this is just really like working for me and yes, I’ve already made the decisions and yes, I can’t really use any new stuff, but that’s why I left a few weeks blank. So I think that’ll work pretty well for me and then like into December. I have well this is in December, but it’s actually the week of Thanksgiving, but I have some of this written down. I don’t know what I’m doing for Thanksgiving, probably hopefully nothing cuz.

That’s just my jam yeah, and this is like the first full week of December. Oh also, I got a question from Ryan. When I was we didn’t, you know we were flipping through this he’s like what are these little things mean over here and they’re, my paydays. That’s what they mean. You might not be able to see that one very well, but this one you can soulfully see but yeah. Those are my paydays, so I just keep track of that on my little thing there but yeah.

You know I don’t have anything there. This is the week of Hanukkah, so I wanted to use lots of Blues to celebrate and then the lights all that good stuff. This is the week of Christmas, which I think is so cute, and I used this kit, not a kit but like a couple of sticker sheets from one town and a million which I thought were super cute. This washes from 110 and a million of this washes from 110 and a million, and then this little green band is signifying my coworker is off, but it’s actually from one of the Erin Condren sticker books, I think from a long time ago, but it had the Gold and it had the right green tone – and I was like – let’s do it so anyway, but yeah I mean I’m going all the way into everything for this.

So this one’s really cute, which I love this one’s actually my birthday week, so this is January 9th – is my birthday yeah and I I’m also. I don’t even think I brought this up yet, but I’m also trying to stay motivated with bringing my lunches to work. So I got these really cute little like lunchboxes and then like on my birthday I’ll, probably go out, but whatever so yeah. This is the week of Doyle birthday.

This is Doyle’s birthday right there. It’s also my brother’s birthday, so yeah, but you know I just I’m loving the way that this is working for my brain and you know. I hope that you guys get a little bit of inspiration from this as well. It’s so cute. This is Valentine’s, even though I don’t have a final time, but that’s alright. This is a Valentine’s Day and then into March. I’ve done a few things love the way.

This looks it’s like huh, more springy, and then we’ve got st. Patrick’s Day week. So I mean I don’t know I just I just really like the way this looks, and I hope that you guys to do as well this one’s like a galaxy theme, which I love this washi, it’s like a sample that I had and then um. I don’t know I use this like art, deco II washi as well, so maybe I’m going to just stop it there. There are more weeks that I have filled out, but once I get into May I really haven’t done anything because you know if I get new stuff, I want to be able to use it.

I just prep ahead and that’s just been working really well for me and how this whole planner piece thing works for my brain. I hope you guys enjoyed the article, please let me know down below what has really worked for you to find your own planner piece or find your own planners style. I would really really love to know.

Plan With Me | Alaska Back Planning | #ECLifePlanner

I am planning in my planner alert the cheers. We are actually working on something that I have been dreading doing, because it’s going to take a long time and I’m hoping it won’t be too long for you guys that I can edit this thing down a little bit, we’ll see how the editing goes. I’m not sure how exactly this is all going to work out, but, as many of you know, I went to an Alaskan cruise month or so we’ll go a little more than a month ago and I didn’t bring.

I brought my planner, but I didn’t bring my planner supplies because I wasn’t like 100 % sure what we were going to be doing and all that good stuff. So what I did is, I actually took my Erin Condren, like sticky notes, and so I have a bunch of little sticky notes denoting what we did and when we did it – and I was in Vancouver from June 19 and then we went back to Minneapolis on Really really late Sunday June 1st, but we didn’t actually get back until the 2nd.

So my goal today is to back plan this and the rest of this. So let’s get started here. I did get a bunch of these things which there’s a huge mess off camera for you guys so yay. I got a bunch of these things if you guys readed my Alaska haul, like all the things I got in Alaska, I’ll, throw it up in a card for you guys if you want to check it out, but I am going to be hopefully using a bunch Of these in the planner here, but I’m not sure how it’s all going to work out and then I did at one of the gift shops find this washi tape.

It won’t pull these out real quick and I don’t think I’m going to use the Northern Lights. One, but I might use these other ones. This is like the totem, poles that say Alaska on it, and this is just like some naturey looking ones. I don’t think I’m going to talk through this, because it’s going to be way too long. If I like ramble on about things, let’s just speed up this footage right now, all right, so I am finally done this took way too long, but I’m very happy to share with you guys all the fun things I did so.

The things I put in I’ll just talk about so when I got to Vancouver, I attempted to sleep for about an hour. I, like didn’t sleep overnight as a whole, long thing, if you guys want to read the vlogs if I haven’t linked it up in a card already, I will do so now and I will link the vlogs down below. We also decided to go shopping afterwards, actually hold on. We had some dinner before and I think we all had like burgers.

So, let’s put a little burger in there. Why not right, and then on Wednesday that was our cruise day, so we’ve gotten the cruise and then we unpacked also the Minnesota planner events planner buying out the Minnesota planner event summer event went on sale that day so Jodi over at life’s organized chaos bought my Ticket for me, so I paid her for that next day we were at sea, we played some bingo, there was also a lumberjack in the area and he did a little demonstration on the ship and let me put in a little, you know thing, you know what I mean we went to an art auction.

The only reason we went is because it was free champagne that, like by the way it wasn’t that good, but whatever it was free and then I’m late into that evening. My mom and I went and got a manicure. The next day we were at the Inside Passage in Alaska and Ketchikan, and then I used this washi tape. It’s a crafting tape. It’s like more, like a paper tape. So I’m not sure I don’t know if I’m going to put this up in my shop as samples cuz, it would get like very warped if that makes sense.

So I’m not sure about that and then we went to the totem Brite State Park. I used a little Alaska sticker, we also went to the lumberjack show and then we were at Ketchikan. After that we went on sea. Then we woke up in Juneau. We went to the rainforest garden, the Mendenhall Glacier, which I have a really pretty sticker from also we went to the State Museum and on the we went to a comedy, show the next day we were in Skagway Alaska.

We went on the White Pass Railroad and then we actually went into Canada for a little while and then after that we went into the red onion. We also went to Liars ville and had a salmon bake and gold panning later on. In that afternoon we went and got some ice cream, and then we were at sea and then the next week on Monday we were at sea. We did some laundry. Actually, my mom and aunt did laundry. I didn’t do any of the laundry I was attempting to sleep because of the snoring issue.

We were in Glacier Bay, so I got a lot of really great photos. Then I did some editing because we were at sea. I also participated in a fashion show and we got some like more formal photos taken that you would kind of see in the vlogs if you readed the vlogs, and then there was a musical on the on the ship and it was called encore. The next day. We were at sea, I did a little ship tour for my vlog.

I just put this little Alaska sticker green because I thought it was cute. We went to bingo and then we had a packing party and the next morning we woke up in Anchorage. We took a train ride over to Talca Tina and then we also spent some time there and then we ended up in a mount mckinley princess Wilderness Lodge the next day. We were still in the Mount McKinley princess wilderness lodge, we went on a hike and then we went to the Denali princess wilderness lodge after that I tried to upload there, but the internet was not strong enough, so I just wrote an upload failed.

The next morning we woke up in Denali Alaska. Again we went on an amazing national park tour that was probably one of my favorite things that we did on land. It was absolutely amazing, after that we had lunch, and then my favorite mama reads comments. My mom’s Q & A posted that day, so, if you guys, are interested in reading the favorite mama Q & A, I will link it up in a card for you guys and it was really sweet.

The comments that you guys had for her and she responded back to a lot of you guys there. We also went to a local place, called the bake that night and then the next day we traveled to Fairbanks, and we went on this riverboat tour and there was like a 40 degree below experience where you just went in a meat locker and like stood in There, for a minute it was kind of cool. It was actually that bad me being from Minnesota.

It was like, oh that’s kind of refreshing, and then we had an extensively loud dinner. It was pretty horrible, but whatever we got to put it in the planner, you know, and then we had a packing party. Then we traveled to of Fairbanks or sorry we were already in Fairbanks. Sorry, I’m getting my Awards mixed up. Today we did a little traveling downtown. We went to this visitor center and I actually put this Northern Lights washi in there, because we readed a like little show about the Northern Lights, which is really cool.

My mom and I went to a cemetery cuz. That’s like her favorite thing to do in the world. I put this cute little Alaska sticker in there and then we took an airport shuttle and we went back to Minneapolis. I did not do anything over here. Cuz, that’s just a whole long thing, but anyway that is going to be it for me today. I will link all the sources of all the stickers that I used the like stickers that I got on my vacation.

I won’t be able to source because I’m not sure where they’re from but any planner stickers that I used, I will link down below as well as the writing utensils that I used as well hope you guys enjoyed the article sorry if it was kind of long. I’m going to try to clip this up and make it not super long for you guys, but if you like this article make sure to give it a thumbs up feel free to subscribe, and I will see you all in the next one bye guys.

Well folks. It’s time to kick it old-school.

Plan With Me | February 18th – 24th | #ECLifePlanner

Today we were working on Monday, a February 18 through a Sunday, a February 24. It’s been a really long time since I filmed a article, it’s actually been a month since I filmed the article there’s no real reason. I just wasn’t really feeling like inspired and motivated. So anyway, I wanted to show you guys I did do some planning without y’all.

Sorry, and so this workweek was kind of crazy, so this is January 28th through a February 3rd, and I worked from home for four days because it was just like nasty, so I did do this, so that was good right and then also this week. I put in as well and yeah like the way it turned out, and I don’t know I just I really enjoyed doing this without the camera. If that makes sense like it just didn’t, feel the pressure to be on not that I really feel the pressure to be on, but just you know when you’re not feeling motivated, and you just want to just do it – you just do it so anyways, and this Was the week of Valentine’s Day? This is all I did so we’re just going to leave it like that.

So anyway, this week is we’re going to get into Oh before I start I like to share to my new viewers. If you’re new here hi, I use an Erin Condren monthly deluxe planner in the hourly layout in the colorful, and I have a gold coil. I have the luxe cover and I put my blog initials on there on the cover and then also this is just a patch like it’s an adhesive patch. So yeah, that’s that’s what I that’s what I do so alright, let’s get into the actual decorative planning.

So this week was, I had another snow day. It’s just like the snow. Won’t stop y’all it just it’s like can’t. Stop won’t stop. I don’t know what to do what the deal is so anyway. I am so over this snow. Just it needs to just stop already and today, when I’m filming this, it’s actually snowing pretty bad in the South Metro. I live in Minnesota. If you guys don’t know, it’s snowing, pretty bad in the South Metro and then up towards the north.

Where I live – and I think this is kind of going on everywhere, but it’s like a blowing snow, it’s just kind of annoying. So yeah, that’s uh! That’s what’s shakin here in Minnesota land! I don’t know it’s just it’s very, very strange! So this week I actually got my taxes done, which is you know, oh so fun for everybody right, so that was on Tuesday or sorry Tuesday afternoon, where my taxes and then so Monday night, I did tax prep Wow.

I can’t talk tax prep whoo can’t talk today, um pretty much all night, so yeah. So I do stuff for like my business and then I had to gather some things for personal, and you know all that good stuff, so yeah kinda, fun, yay taxes. All right. I’m just trying to put my work in here and then Thursday. I think yeah Thursday and Friday both stayed until 5:30 oops. I had to get a couple of things accomplished before I left for the day that just tends to happen with the projects.

I do it. Just takes a long time – and it’s like do I wan na just save this for tomorrow and not remember where I am in the process, or do I just want to you know power through for another hour hour and a half whatever, so I tend to be The one that would just power through it and get it done before I leave because I don’t want to miss any of the the steps. Cuz there’s a lot there’s a lot. So here is my beautiful miss.

I could not like, for the life of me, decide on a color of washi today, so I’m like screw it, I’m just going to go gold, and I don’t know what the stickers are going to look like. So I think I’m just going to like open up a binder and see what speaks to me. You know let’s do purple and pink. Why not right all right. So, let’s put in all the work stiff. Oh you know I forget. Sometimes I’m not going to forget today dang it that I have these really cool work stickers, so you don’t have to write work some days you guys some days.

I just can’t figure out my life. Put all the things in. Oh, I just had one of those moments worth like. Did I even turn the camera on that has happened to me more than once? If I do say so myself and if y’all film articles, you probably have felt that same feeling as well. Alright, so I’m going to use my plan to plan sticker Co, little guys that say work from home because that’s what happened that day? Okay, I need my Christian binder, it’s very full at the moment.

It’s always full. What am I talking about? Alright, I need to find my snow day here we go, I think I’m going to have to like order a new one. After all of this, like all the shenanigans of all this snow we’ve been having lately, you think I’ll put that sucker up there. It’s really the only reason I work from home or if I have like an appointment or something in my area, because I work pretty far away, then I will do that, but very rarely alright and then Monday night.

I did text prepping basically for the evening it was very enthralling guys, it’s very enthralling and it like took me all night to get everything done and handled so use this cute little washi. That’s like paper clips cuz. You know the cuteness. I want like a full box or something I don’t know what I want. Let’s see here use one of these okay, here’s my little tax, prep box. There we go, and I figured it would be fun to you know, put some little oops accoutrements on here, because I have them and why not, I feel like I’d like refine just stickers all the time.

Alright, so here’s my little check receipts and yeah like this is how I felt this like once more with love sticker. I don’t know it’s going to focus properly there. It goes that’s exactly how I felt on Monday, alright, and then I put everything in a fancy. Little folder and put it in my purse and then I went to my tax appointment very exciting all right and then on Tuesday at 3:00 I had my tax appointment and it actually went well.

I had asked my tax preparer if she had had clients that were happy or upset when they left her office, and she said unfortunately, she’d had more that were upset. But I didn’t get as much back that I got back last year, but you know that’s because it’s just like some of the new tax laws and things like that so anyway, but you know I was just fine with me and I know like if you all Are Dave, Ramsey people we shouldn’t be getting money back, but it’s so difficult to decipher that when you have a small business as well so anyway, I didn’t have to pay it, so that was that was good.

So anyway, I got my taxes done. I didn’t do anything on Wednesday because it was a snow day Thursday. I went and I picked up my prescription, so I’m going to use these little guys, so I just ran after work a little pick up at Walgreens, alright and I ran to Target after work on Friday. It seems to be like my go-to is just you know, run to target on Friday or do like grocery shopping on Friday, because that just makes life easier.

You know, and then I did laundry Saturday, let’s see what’s going on here. I forget to put in my trash: sometimes there we go Marriott’s to do laundry. Alright, I’m just going to go clean and then like a little house icon, because you know that’s kind of what was going on that day and then I took a nap because you know it’s tired, but it’s just the reality of it. I was tired, y’all someone used one of these little guys.

Let’s see here well use the little mmm. Let’s go. Snooze yes took a little snooze. Oh we’re going to use these as well. These are from Lily Henry, but I’m not sure if her shop is still up or not. If they are, I mean, if any of these shops that I use are open like I will always link them below, for you guys, but um yeah. I have stuff from so long ago and I you know I want to use it up, but sometimes the shops are closed or they’re discontinued or it was like a limited run.

So but I don’t want to be wasteful and not use my stuff so yeah and then today I am filming and editing and that’s about it and I’m dreading taking Doyle out on his afternoon walk because it’s like blowing snow out there and I’m not really wanting To do that at the moment so put in a little filmy guy right there. No, basically, the rest of my night is going to be this editing sans the bracelets. I don’t I don’t do the bracelet thing.

Well, that’s cute! I’ve never used one of these stickers before very cute. I think I think, all right, so that is it for this week. I hope you guys enjoyed the article. Sorry, it’s been so long since I’ve been online, but there are more articles to come actually filming a couple right after this. So you’ll see some more in your inbox this week. If you click that little Bell notification, then YouTube, ideally, is supposed to be sending you an email when I upload.

So if you like this article, make sure to give it a thumbs up and feel free to subscribe. If you haven’t already thank y’all so much for reading and I’ll see you in the next one bye guys well folks, it’s time to kick it old school

Plan With Me | January 14th – 20th | #ECLifePlanner

Today is the 20th I’m hoping to get this article up for you guys today I was planning on filming it yesterday, but my furnace decided to break so that was fun. I do have heat now, everything’s good. I am replacing my furnace totally. If you guys follow me on Instagram, you would have seen my stories yesterday, but I’m getting a full replacement and that’s happening this upcoming Tuesday.

I believe so. It was just really really expensive and it was very, very adulty, but my furnace was over 17 years old. So it was definitely time it actually only cost me like. I want to say a couple hundred dollars more to replace the whole thing versus fix every problem with it. So I’d much rather do that, because it comes with some warranties and guarantees, and things like that. So anyway, that was fun yesterday, but also yesterday was Doyle’s birthday, so I am going to be using some Shiba washy and I think I’m going to use this sort of like black and white one.

I pulled out some orange ones too. These are all from my shop if you’re interested, but let’s talk about the planner right away. I know a lot of you guys read these all the time, but some people are new, so I use the 7 by 9 Erin Condren life planner. I got the gold coil in the hardbound cover this year. However, I did get. It comes with like a little thing here. I did get another plastic cover too just so I could, like I don’t know, use it for other things, but anyway, and then also I got the colorful version.

I did this washy myself. I did the colourful version and yeah. So we are working on this day or this day no this week, and you know we’re going to just get going with this. I’m going to grab my little thing. This is also an Erin Condren thing. It’s a it’s a bookmark, but I use it to cut washi because it just makes my life easier and where it was, this start cool. It’s so funny. I’ve had this washi for like the longest time and I have never used it.

So I figured it would be good because it’s Doyle de or it was Doyle’s birthday yesterday on the 19th and he turned 12 years old. He is an old old man that little Doyle dog he’s kind of funny. So he had a lot of visitors yesterday, because I had a lot of appointments yesterday with people coming into the house and checking on the furnace and everything. So he actually really enjoyed his day. Oh gosh and now he’s sitting at the front door because he thinks it’s time to go out and it’s like not even 9:00 a.

M. Y’all. So I don’t. I don’t know it’s like when I’m downstairs he’s like. Oh it’s time, it’s time to go. It’s clearly not time to go. He just wants to demand things yeah. So this is such a cute little Sheba washy, it’s so much fun. Okay! So let’s put in my work and then I actually got my hair done this week too, and all that good stuff. So, let’s put in some work um I have this washi, which I think is really cute.

It’s just like little X’s like little black and white X’s. I don’t know I thought that would be kind of fun with the Sheba’s situation and I always tend to write down my work schedule a little sticky note over here, because I have a flex schedule. So I just I never know when I show up and there’s some days that I’m like. Oh, I have to go in early because I got to finish this project or whatever and then there’s some days or I’m just like yeah I’ll show up at 8:30.

It’s fine actually Thursday. I started at 8:45, but that’s because I had a doctor’s appointment and I actually worked at home instead of going into the office so yeah and then some days I work really late and you know it just kind of depends, but yeah Wednesday. It was only their fertile 2:30 because I had a hair appointment at 3:00, so yeah. I was actually able to get in to see my hair gal weight earlier than I thought I would.

I sent her a message at the beginning of January and I’m like hey. You know, let me know when you have time in your schedule and I know like she’s the owner of the salon, so she kind of books up pretty fast, but she had one random day and I’m like I’ll take it. So that worked out pretty good. All right and then Thursday add in and then Friday, 7:45 to 4:45 that’ll, just cool yay work. Alright, so let me grab my work things that I need.

I should have pulled all this out before, but I clearly didn’t so whoopsie see I’m going to use these black ones, but then I keep forgetting to use these scripted words that are like some of my favorite things to use like work. Oh here, let’s use that one here we go we’re going to use this one. Instead, cuz, you know good stuff, alright, so they pull out five of these. I just think these look so cute together and these are all from coffee break planner.

I do have a discount code down below if y’all are interested in checking out her stuff. It’s a matte removable paper and it’s one of my favorites, so just just FYI how it works so yeah. I really like the coffee break planner paper. If you like, matte paper you’re going to like this a lot – and I love that it’s removable too, because y’all know your girl screws up all the time on these plan with me.

So if I need to you know, lift something up or whatever it’s just so much easier than you know, ruining your paper so yeah alright. So there is that and then duo had a nail trim, so we’re going to put that in, but I think I’m going to look and see. I have this huge dining table here but, like I never have enough room, I am going to pull all right. I’m going to use this from Chrissy and zion’s and use up my last little foil dog.

These are doyle dogs too, but they’re like the black and tan version of doyle dogs, so cute alright, so I actually have to take Doyle because he’s so ordering I have to take him to the vet to get his nails trimmed. So we did that. I have. We had an appointment at 7:15 on Tuesday, I’m going to use these. I actually got these at Michaels like years and years ago. They probably still have them, so I’m going to put a little black paw here too, because you know he like screams of bloody murder.

When we go there, but he just he just doesn’t like it, he just doesn’t like it. So I wish I could actually trim his nails myself, but that’s not happening. It’s been twelve years. That’s still not happening. Alright, then, on Wednesday I actually just saw the Caesar the Christian design stickers for Michaels, and I have this one that says: hair appointment so duh. Why don’t I use it right and um? So I had my hair appointment at a three o’clock on Wednesday and we did three o’clock p.

M. Oh. I guess I wrote through p.M. Right there whatever, but aren’t these cool little stickers, it’s so cute. I think I’m going to use this is what, because these are so cute, I’m going to heck right, tada, alright, so that is done and then also I had a doctor’s appointment on Thursday. So, let’s use the doctor’s appointment, one as well, alright, and that was at 7:45 a.M. And we had to do some like blood draws and medical check, some things.

So that’s what that one was and then we’ll use this like little stethoscope to and then that’s why. I worked from home because I sometimes will have to go back and do another blood draw later on in the day, depending on my like lab results and stuff. So I just stay at home because my clinic is really really close to where I live, and I live pretty far away. You know from where I work all right and then we are going to use.

I think I have like a little work from home thing in here, but I got ta find it. I know I have it in here been like consistently not on purpose been consistently working from home like once a week pretty regularly. That’s not something I normally would do, but it’s just like weird circumstances have come up and I’ve had to work from home, so anyway at least I have the ability to do that. Alright, these are from plan to plan sticker CO and I’m just going to put in this little gal working from home and then after work a rant at Target.

This – and this is Mayor, bear crafts. I know I got this years and years ago, but still love it all right, and I have these cute little stickers that are actually of Doyle sticking his little tongue out at me, and I got these from Erin Condren calm. You can, like you know, customize, that we all these stickers are different or they’re all the same, so I got them all the same, so she put in Doyle’s stinky little birthday here like this and I used last week.

It was my birthday, and I used this sheet from Christian designs – is from that celebrations. Collection binder and I figured oil turns 12, so we can put in his candles for 12 tada, so cute and we’ll put in some little birthday planner Steve’s, because why not right tada and then for the fun stuff. Well, first thing: let’s do some laundry because I did laundry all day so, let’s put in some non dray here we go grab an orange one, all right, so I put in furnace down here, but I’m going to use one of these.

Let’s see it’s the two-year anniversary favorites from once more with love, and let’s see here, I think we’re going to use this ugh little person. This is cute cuz. It kind of that’s kind of how I felt so what happened was in the morning. I woke up and I was like gosh – it’s really cold in here. So what took toil and a walk and came back and looked at the thermostat and it was down to like 54 degrees – and I usually keep my house at 62 like that.

Just feels good to me and I was like what the heck is going on so turn the thermostat on turn the feminine thermostat off. I was like what is happening here. Finally, it like turned back on, but then it was just blowing air. It wasn’t hot air. It was just like you know, room temperature, air, I’m like what heck it’s happening over here. So at that point I was like I should call so I called like a 24-hour emergency place that actually happened to be the same place that my parents have used for their home and I’m, like you know I don’t know, what’s going on, can you have somebody? Come out and they’re like absolutely not a problem, so I had the first technician come out and just assess what the problem was and his name was Nathan.

So I’m going to put that in here, and he basically told me that you know the repairs like the minimum repairs would be like $ 1500 and the maximum repairs to fix everything. Then it would be like I think he said $ 2,900. If I wanted to fix the unit completely and all that stuff, but new units started at about $ 3,000, so he’s like well, you know is that something you’d be interested in. Are you really interested in just repairing, and I said you know what for the cost difference I’d rather just replace the whole unit? My unit is, you know more than 17 years old and the national average, at least in the u.

S. Is about 12 years. Is how long they last some last like 40 and some last like two but whatever so then I had a guy named Bill, come out at 2 o’clock and explained everything to me and we have set it up where I am getting a new furnace on Tuesday. So I will be working it from home on Tuesday as well. See I’m and I like, keep it going. I guess right just keep keep working from home, I’m going to use one of these well stickers.

Unfortunately, this shop is not in business anymore and hasn’t been in quite a while, and but you know what this is perfect for this day right and then I called my mom to commiserate on home ownership, so that was fun she’s like way too adults, I’m like. I know right so anyway. Today I am filming my plan with me this morning and we’ll just put it in like right about here. I will edit at some point, but I’m not totally sure, and then this morning I did a little bit more decluttering.

So I’m going to put that right up here. Actually, you know what no I feel like I feel like. It would be better if I put this inside one of these. I don’t know why I just really like the way that that looks so much better than just on its own. Do you agree? I think that’s so cute so anyway, that is my week so far. I will probably put in whatever I do tonight, but I am planning on just enjoying my relaxing day and editing this article for you guys and oh I forgot to say okay so tomorrow the 21st is when tickets go on sale for the general ticketing for go Wild it’s in Vegas this year.

I want to go into the office, but there are some times where I cannot, unfortunately, so anyway, I got a stitch fix this week, which was awesome. I actually have a stitch fix like literally downstairs right now, and I think I’m going to film that tomorrow, when I get home, I haven’t even opened up the box.

So this is typically in my area, I’m in Minnesota, so like all of our public schools for the most part start the day after Labor Day. So that’s kind of how I grew up, and so I did this one as kind of a school themed so Labor Day I had off so did a bunch of things. As you can see, I’ve got fun, migraines and all that fun stuff in here.

I’ve also been you guys, will notice over here, I’m tracking some stuff. I am tracking tons of how many I take per night and, let’s just say the medicine that they’re giving me currently isn’t working, so I have to supplement it with tums, which also isn’t working kind of it’s just a whole. It’s like a literal pain in the stomach yeah head with migraine two days in a row, so I had my green this day, which means I didn’t really do much and then another migraine here at work which really stunk I had a doctor’s appointment.

I had to contact some stuff for my vehicle. I went to Walgreens, I swear. I go to Walgreens like all the time yeah. I also got my auto glass repair and I had like a little chip in it. So I got that repaired. I had to schedule a surgery that I’ve already had so that’ll be up here in just a moment and then planned. Let’s see did some other fun things over here. Oh, I started reading mind hunter by the way, I’m done with mind hunter um, because I already readed both seasons.

I just like can’t stop. It was so good, so so fun. If you guys have any suggestions on Netflix. Let me know, but mine hunter was amazing and I loved it. So yeah I’ve got a bunch of happy mail. Over this weekend. Did some filming I set up my new planner from work. I clean my garage I feel like I’m, like always in flux of cleaning. My garage does anybody else have that I just feel like it’s never clean enough or picked up enough.

I don’t know whatever, and then I went out to a brunch with Jodi and Ryan. Jodi is from life’s organized chaos and Ryan is from the man with the plans. I will leave their article or their blog links down below go check them out. After that I did a little retail therapy shopping. I went HomeGoods. I went to the diner location, Eden, Prairie and no load mall. I just really needed some art, so I was looking for some wall art and I did find a bunch of things.

So I know I’ve been talking about for a long time at doing an updated house tour and I’m going to do that someday. I just don’t know when anyway and then yeah I did my meal prep and, like I usually do on Sundays, and then I also made my grocery list as well, and then we get into the 9th through the 15th and as you can see, I can just Notice right up ahead, migraines yeah, I worked from home this day.

I had chest pain. My chest pain is attributed to some results that I’ll talk about in just a moment. So I did work from home. That day I did go out with some friends. We just went and grabbed some dinner got a bunch of happy mail went to dinner at my parents, house hung a bunch of art and then I cleaned the garage again like. I can’t stop cleaning the garage apparently targets. I ordered my costume for Halloween.

I know that’s like way far away, but I I’m going to be one of my co-workers for Halloween, so I was approving stuff with her to be like okay, would you buy this she’s like heck yeah like okay, perfect, just so anyways I’ll, probably end up posting A picture of it like on the 31st because we’re going to be working on the 31st and we’re going to be doing some fun things in the office that day so I’ll have somebody take a picture of me in the outfit and then Saturday, Sunday didn’t really Do too much organized some of my paperwork, which was nice to do purged, a bunch of paperwork which was awesome? I ordered a quilt online.

I actually just got the shipping notification today so to take awhile, there was a citywide garage sale so like the whole. Neighborhood was just like a flutter with things and then I just paid a bunch of bills and then we get to with a sixteenth through the 22nd. So this is where the first, I don’t know, they call it a surgery, but just cuz. They like put you under, but it’s more of like a procedure.

I had an endoscopy which basically means that they put you to sleep and they put a tube down your throat as well as a camera and see what the hell’s go going on. So what happened? Was it took a bunch of biopsies? Everything came back pretty normal or as they expected it to come back, but I also have a hiatal hernia, which that just means that there is part of my stomach. That’s creeping up into like places.

It shouldn’t. Be and pressing on my like chest, cavity wall kind of, and that’s why I feel that chest pressure and that chest pain quite frequently so, like my stomach, is going places it shouldn’t go basically, so I am in the midst of getting that fixed. I don’t have any updates of when that’s going to happen, but that is what they found out. So this was pretty whatever about normal a week. I guess and then in the morning I did work from home.

I didn’t have to go in until noon that day. So then, I just kind of wrote out on here all the things that I could do before I went in so I could have oatmeal at 6:00 a.M. Or by 6:00 a.M. I had to stop all clear liquids by 10:00 a.M. And then at 10:00 a.M. They wanted me to drink 12 to 20 ounces of Gatorade and then be done with it by 10:00, so yeah and then a hiatal hernia, that’s what they found out.

So my mom stayed over that night and then she left about noon the next day. Um you know cuz. I had to have a responsible adult with me um. I did work from home this day because I couldn’t drive for 24 hours after being put under, but we did a ticket giveaway at work and it was also national pepperoni pizza day, so they had pizza over there. So I just worked from home and then I was so tired. I took a nap so yeah and then Saturday you took another nap, but I was so tired, like the next day.

It wasn’t too bad in the morning, but man at like 24 hours afterwards. It’s just like like hit me, I don’t know um yeah and then I had a frog came in my house. That was exciting. It was really really stormy and rainy the whole weekend or likely it’s that morning and a frog decided to come and seek refuge inside of my house. So I was like oh nope you’re, going to go back outside little friends. Izumo anyway, move some boxes out to the garage for my brother.

I had another migraine. Yeah I feel like this is just like Emily’s medical history, yay, so yeah and then um you know, did a bunch of things. Added articles and brother came up to pick up. All of his stuff and then went out to dinner with my parents and brother that evening, and then we are into this week, which today is the 29th. So this week was me I mean I don’t know, there’s just so much going on, which is weird because I normally have like a very simple life, but I’ve got a lot of medical crap going on so Monday.

I actually stayed till 7 o’clock, which is why I have my nice little peanut butter, taco sticker. That says it so I was just trying to get this order out and it just took so long. I was just a pain and I but um I had to stop at Walgreens, because I had a medication change that I had to deal with and then the next day. Okay, so my brother drove to Iowa, like he actually lives in Iowa, so moved all of his stuff and then went to Iowa ID email.

My doctor, I got a flu shot and had to go to Walgreens again because they did more think it’s the whole thing. This medication wasn’t right so then they gave me a new medication. I had a migraine, unfortunately, and read this as us: oh so good you guys so that was fun and then regular work went to a meeting with some friends and my mom came over and walked the dog cuz. She was just over here and, let’s see, oh, my friend Kristin her birthday was on the 26th.

I worked from home. Actually, both of these days, I was planning on working from home this day, anyways, because I had a doctor’s appointment at 4:00 and it was just a pre-op, but we needed to talk about my hernia results and all of that stuff, so they said like hey. Can we give you a call if anything opens up in the day, and I said yeah – that’s not a problem, so I was going to plan on working from home here.

Unfortunately, again chest pain, same thing went to the grocery store later on that night, and I was reading some Netflix more migraine migraine good times, uh-huh Walgreens again and on that evening I did some laundry posted. My budget did some name tags for my upcoming high school reunion. That’s coming up, which is exciting. I did some cleaning yesterday, so I cleaned my entryway closet. My brother has had stuff in there for a year now so now that he’s moved he’s going to heat.

One to Iowa, I was able to revamp that a little bit, so I was able to clean it out declutter everything I actually decluttered a little bit in my closet too. So I have to UM like garbage bags full of stuff that I’m going to be taking a donation. Probably sometime this week I was planning on going to the grilled cheese, a festival in Minneapolis with Ryan from him with the plans. However, his plans changed and then earlier in the week we were texting and I’m like you know what I’m having so many issues with my stomach and digestion.

I just don’t think that’s a good thing and I can’t really be drinking alcohol with, like all the weird medications I’m on so and like the tickets, we hadn’t even purchased the tickets yeah, but the tickets came with like the booze and then like a tasting thing From the vendors and I was like yeah, it’s probably a better idea, just I cancel it and so he’s like. Okay, sorry, I just didn’t want to like leave you hanging, I’m like no, I think it’s best for everybody, so he actually ended up going out of town, which was great so anyway.

Today is Sunday. I paid a bunch of bills. I have oh, I still kind of have a migraine, but it’s better. Now Doyle has had diarrhea all day, which has been a very interesting. Thankfully he hasn’t messed in the house, but I don’t know what he got into, but I made him some rice and he’s on the mend, but yeah I’ve been trying to lay down and it’s just like, not working, and so I’m filming right now. But I’m going to be doing a little bit of meal prep later on and maybe about an hour or so so anyway.
