January 2019 update

Sky on fire – captured on my way back from the gym the other day #suckerforsunrises

Well first off – happy new year! ?

Just realized when looking at my blog that I hadn’t written a “formal” update aka blog post since October so here I am.


I’m a morning person?!

In and out of the gym before the sun rose today – who am I?

I went from waking up with hubby and the kids ~615am these past 4 weeks, to waking up at 530am these past 2 days, to now wanting to wake up at 5am starting tomorrow. I’m addicted.


IWP disc system options

9/13/18: This blog post is a work in progress and will be updated over the next several days.

If you’re an Inkwell Press planner girl, you’ve heard that they’ve come out with a disc planning system which has ladies who have used other disc systems excited at the possibilities. I wanted to consolidate the various disc system options. If you’ve used any of the disc system options, please feel free to comment below so I can add it to my post!

*Note: IWP = Inkwell Press, HP = Happy Planner


The struggle to juggle is real

I was at my older 2 kids’ eye dr appt earlier when I glanced at a magazine cover. One of the headlines was about work life balance and the struggle to juggle. I already know what a struggle it is as I juggled 3 of my 4 kids at the moment, but I was like “let me read what this has to say”. I read the editor’s note and was like “yeah yeah yeah” until I read “I stop and tell myself I’m doing the best I can”. That line hit me and made me stop and think because I realized I really don’t give myself enough credit.
