Fun Finds Friday: The Erin Condren Life Planner


I’ve always been a paper planner kind of girl. I just love paper. I posted a while back about creating my own blog planner, and I am still excited about that thing (I just need to use it!). In that post I mentioned about creating my own personal daily planner, but that hasn’t happened yet. Then, just recently, I discovered the Erin Condren Life Planners, and I’m kind of obsessed. This planner looks exactly like what I would have created for myself! It’s like it came from my brain, it’s that scary.

It is a little pricey, starting at $50, but there are so many ways to customize the planner to fit your needs. I love looking at how others are using their planners – just search for #erincondren on Instagram or Pinterest, and you’ll see thousands of different ways people are using them. From daily planners, to fitness tracking, to meal planning – so many options. All of the washi tape and cute stickers just make me go ooohh and ahhhh constantly.

In spite of the price, I do plan on buying one very soon. I just can’t resist all of the cuteness! These planners are so pretty and cheerful, how could I not use it?




Hello Again!

It would seem I’ve taken a bit of a break from my blog. Oops. I never intended to let it go for this long; it wasn’t a conscious decision, it just sort of happened. Hopefully it won’t happen again!

I’m hoping to get back to it full-swing, or at least part-swing. Recipes and other fun stuff will start making appearances very soon. For now, I just wanted to touch base with whomever might still be out there.

Here’s what I’ve been up to, in a nutshell:

  • School, or, medical training – I recently finished classes to become a Phlebotomist, a CNA, and a Patient Care Tech (PCT). Fun times! Hello, career change. More on that later.
  • Kids. Enough said. The older one starts 2nd grade in 3 weeks, and the little one starts Kindergarten. *sigh*
  • Beach vacation. Can I go back, please?
  • Crafty business. It’s been put on hold, for now, but it was keeping me on my toes there for quite a while. It’s nice to have a break from it, but I do miss the little bits of extra money.

So, stay tuned for more of everything, and thanks for sticking with me!
