” Take time to do the things that make you happy.”

Happy Friday! We all know that running an active blog takes careful planning. Throw in sponsors, affiliates, mailing lists, giveaways, and taking pictures and blogging quickly becomes a full time job! With so many balls in the air, it can be hard to keep track of everything and stay organized.

 There’s something for everyone in these (HERE) planners– from bloggers to busy moms like me! This is by far the best calendar and planner I have ever used– and the best part it is all in one. My favorite part of the planner is the sticker page. Seriously, I still occasionally forget things, ( I have a dentist appointment or I have to respond to someone’s email, for example) and the sticker page has been tremendously helpful for allowing me to focus and get things done. I’m also trying to eat healthier and exercise to lose those last 15 lbs. of baby weight. So that means I also have a daily food and activity tracker that I maintain. That’s a lot of stuff to keep track of. So, I love planners, because that’s where I get to do all of those things!!

Thank you all for taking the time for stopping by the blog and to Jenna Dempsey for sponsoring this post. Be sure to check out her website (https://www.ninjandninj.etsy.com) and purchase your favorite design. I hope you love her planners as much as I do!

Happy Thanksgiving, guys! Have a great holiday!

 2016 Weekly Planner “Make Time to be Happy” with monthly spreads, back pocket, stickers, adhesive tabs and more c/o Ninj & Ninj Paper Goods by Jenna Dempsey 


9S2A2639 I love this planner! I’ve been using it since I got it and it is exactly what I needed. The pages for the week have plenty of room to write out all my tasks for the day. The picture really does not do this justice– it is even cuter in person.

15This planner is allowing me the opportunity to do exactly what is stated inside the front cover,” Take time to do the things that make you HAPPY.” It is a part of me– it is my written world.
