My Favorite New Planner

Posted on: Friday, July 13, 2012

Hooray, my Erin Condren planner arrived! I thought this was the perfect time to order one, to start in August along with grad school beginning!  I definitely have always preferred a paper planner; I love writing things down, using colors, making little notes and seeing everything laid out in front of me (not on a computer screen). I love the amount of organization that this planner promotes, and it has some really great features. Picture time!
 nice packaging and bubble wrap

 You can customize the design and text.

laminated tabs
 Huxley came to inspect. 

 first thing I put on my planner! A sticker from our wedding, to mark our anniversary :) 
 lots o' stickers

 gift labels, and a pouch and pocket for holding things (already put in some stamps)

I recently got some new pens too (plus my favorite pen lately- a free pen from Baylor) 

I have to copy Sar with this and say my planner is my favorite new possession/obsession. And here's the rest of my favorites for the 15 Day Challenge! (psst- check out my summer favorites post from yesterday, too!)

Song: Possibly, probably, Will You be There by Michael Jackson. Yes, the Free Willy song. No other song moves me (physically and emotionally...I have to dance and sometimes cry) more than this song. We played it at the wedding (at my request) and everyone loved it; I was surprised- surely that song would clear the dance floor of all but me and my two friends who also love the song, and my wee cousin who danced to everything (Queen of the Dance Floor, that one), and abruptly bring the party to a depressing end, but no! 

Quote: I'm not sure what my favorite favorite quote is, but I recently saw this one and I quite like it. Also, love Amy Poehler. 

Food: Always- cucumber. Lately- whole wheat toast with avocado, salt, pepper and cucumber. It is reminiscent of Finland. The bread is different and I don't think I ever had avocado in Finland, but I try. 

Vacation Spot: Finland! Though I wouldn't mind going somewhere tropical, either. Also, New Zealand.

Photo: We've only seen a preview of the wedding photos so far, and I'm sure one of those will end up my favorites, but for now, this picture of the kitties when they were brand new, napping on my desk chair, so tiny.

Movie: Jurassic Park. Runner Up: Away We Go

TV Show: Of all time, Arrested Development. Other great ones: Dexter (just watched all of season 6 on itunes in like a day), The West Wing, Parks & Rec, The Office.

Outdoor Activity: Kayaking, for sure!

Thing about the Future: Little ones. Someday! 

Have a great weekend, everyone!
Oh, and sidenote, I'm putting together an Olympic themed giveaway to hopefully have up in time for the Opening Ceremonies on July 27th! Stay tuned for more info! :)

  1. I am so glad you love your planner! Me and mine slept together last night, I love her so much.

    Have you tried paddle boarding? Similar to kayaking but you're standing up and have to balance. Love it!

  2. I am in love with that planner. And I love the design you chose! I'm currently in quite a quandary about how to organize my grad school life. iCal? Google calendar? Real planner? TOO MANY OPTIONS. But this one is PRETTY...

  3. thank you for the great blog post, glad you love your planner! enjoy!

  4. I am totally obsessed with cute planners! This one is adorable.

    Between the lines
