Planner Addict!!

Hello Dolls,

I have recently joined the army of the Planner addicts. I am so glad I did. Last year I purchase the Erin Condren Life Planner. I absolutely love it. I take everywhere possible. Although, I have found it to be difficult to take sometimes, so a splurged on a pocket size Louis Vuitton PM agenda. My ECLP is still my go to planner, but not always practical to take with me. 

I have made so many new friends through this craft. I have found that decorating my ECLP is so therapeutic for me. It's a hobby I really enjoy and unfortunately not everyone understands. But that's ok. Thankfully I have a super awesome supportive partner who understands me. He gets me. He realized and knows it's relaxing for me. 

When you start to decorate your planner, it can get overwhelming. First you have to know how and what you're using your planner for. I use it for everything. Keep track of my kids schedules, doctors appointments, chore schedules, meetings & work dinners, my school schedule and assignments...etc. 

I do have a calendar on my phone and other electronics but I forget to look at it. This system works for me. Do what work for you. 

Start off by buying a small planner/agenda I use to buy the ones from Target. Those were my favorite, especially for school. They are just no longer practical for me. Get a good pen, that doesn't bleed. I also love highlighters. As I said before, know what you'll use it for, maybe it'll be strictly for school, or to schedule blog post. The possibilities are endless. Do you have to write every single thing down in your planner, no. Don't let it overwhelm you. This is suppose to be fun. 

For my stickers, I bought them on Etsy. A shop called PopFizzPaper. She has some of the cutest stickers. I ordered more from her and an other shop. When I get all my stickers I will do another post on them in detail. 

For my love of planning I started a separate Instagram account, please make sure to follow me on there @MissGeeklyChicPlans

Hello April 2015

Hello Dolls,

April showers bring May flowers. I'm so happy March it over. It seemed like the longest winter ever. I know Spring started technically started in March. But for me I always think of the month of April. 

Not much happened in March. Had a few family birthdays and gatherings. My daughters took turns being sick...again! Work has been hectic. Learning new procedures, and new policies. My Ariana started on the track team, I'm so excited for her. I really needed her to join some type of sports. I think all girls should be in sports, it's good for them. My daughter doesn't like to sweat so I was pretty shocked she joined track, but I'm so glad she did. Thankfully, she is loving it. My Alejandra is in third grade and is too small to join in sports, per her school guidelines, sports start in the fifth grade. Speaking of Alex ( Alejandra's nickname is Alex) she has a birthday coming up, on the 20th. My baby will be a 9 y/o. I cannot believe my baby will be nine. Wow, just yesterday I was bringing her home from the hospital. 

I love the month of April. The cool weather. Change in fashion and colors. Everything seems so bright and cheerful. April is the beginning of beautiful things. Flowers, smell of bar-b-q's and fire pits. I'm so excited. As you guys know, David and I bought our house in September, I haven't blogged about it because I haven't done a whole lot with it, just yet. I brought the furniture I had in my little apartment. So I'm excited to paint and get patio furniture for the yard. I'll be posting and keeping you all updated. Do recommend any stores for home decor. I get so frustrated because I can never make up my mind. 

We will both be on vacation starting this Friday, Good Friday, with the girls. The girls will be on Spring break next week, so we decided to be off with them. Saves us a bunch on having to pay a baby sitter. We will be taking the girls to Great Wolf Lodge in Wisconsin Dells. Sshh, it's a secret. I'm going to pack their things and leave it in the car. They have been wanting to return since we first took them, last year. We all had a blast. 

What are you most excited about or looking forward to this month?

  I have a few video and blog ideas for this month and I hope you all enjoy them!
