It’s April. How’d that Happen?


I’m actually blogging today… and it’s no April Fools’ Day prank. Ha!

Life got really busy and crazy in March. It was insane! March had lots of ups and downs. I did a lot of traveling, a lot of reading (I finally read Allegiant!), a lot of crying, a lot of fighting with myself, and spent a lot of time with my family. It was great! And I might be crazy.

I get my day started and I hear the birds chirping and I love it! The weather is so nice that I want to spend time outside and that’s extremely rare for me. We don’t have the AC on yet, but it’s okay because we have the windows and doors open during the day and hearing the sounds of nature fill the house is extremely peaceful!

While the middle siblings are out at football and cheerleading practice, my baby brother and I have been spending time outside playing with chalk on the porch and sidewalks while my mom watches. It’s so much fun and relieves a lot of stress!

I obviously need to work on my Olaf drawing skills.

Although March was filled with all that it was filled with for me, I think it was good. I needed it. And I hope that I can make April a great month, too! Plus, on the 12th, I’ll be a month away from turning 22 and that in itself is exciting!

April also means spring cleaning and I plan on “clearing out” a lot in my life. Online and in real life. It’s time!

I’m really excited to see what April brings and you’ll be seeing a lot more of me here on the blog… hopefully! I am going to start volunteering at my baby brother’s school to help get myself out of the house so we’ll see how that goes and how long it lasts.

In the mean time, HAPPY APRIL! I’m stoked that spring is finally here. How about you?!

My Erin Condren Obsession + a Giveaway

Erin Condren

My obsession for Erin Condren is no secret! I love raving about my life planners and notebooks because they’re insanely awesome! While typing this I got an email that another notebook I ordered shipped… ha! Told you I was obsessed!!! There’s just something about the colorful pages and amazing cover designs that just drags me in… I love it!

My favorite Erin Condren products are the Life Planners and Notebooks. Right now, I have a notebook for my Thirty-One business and a life planner for my personal life and blogs.

I’m obviously a huge fan of the zig-zag design! I posted about how I use my Erin Condren Life Planner in the past… here’s an inside look at my Erin Condren Take Note! Notebook. They both help me stay so organized! But Erin Condren doesn’t just have planners and notebooks, there’s so many awesome products available! I’d love to get an acrylic box next!

Happy Valentine’s Day


You’d think after my post about why Valentine’s Day is hard for me I wouldn’t say “happy” Valentine’s Day, but I was so overwhelmed by the response to my post that I sat for a while crying (happy tears, of course) and decided that I wasn’t going to let my feelings win. I promise to […]

Why Valentine’s Day is Hard for Me

Every year when Valentine’s Day rolls around, I get into this crazy phase where I re-evaluate myself and try to figure out why I’ve never been kissed or have never gone on a date. I’ve gone through a relationship, but I don’t really think it counts… that’s a whole different story. It’s honestly a strong […]
