Sunday Spread | 5

I am one of those folks whose week starts on Monday and ends on Sunday - which is why I love the weekly view in my Erin Condren so here we are at the end of the week and I'm back to share a little walkthrough of my weekly spread. This week I used a mystery kit from Little Dog Paper Co. The theme of the kit was Donuts & Coffee and it's been my very favorite kit from Nicole's shop so far. We had a few ups and downs during the week. Our family had to put a cat that was born in their household and was only 12 years old to sleep early in the week. Our family also welcomed a new member of the family: my first nephew, Ezra. He's the cutest baby ever and I am so excited to be an aunt. I'm even more excited to see the family grow and be able to bond with my sisters (in law) because we're all moms.

Anyways, I hope y'all like the video. Be sure to stop by Youtube and get the links to the shops mentioned, the pens I use, and the rounded corner punch I use, plus a $10 off coupon for your first purchase with Erin Condren. And you can see a closer up view on Instagram: First Half | Second Half

Plan With Sarah E. | 4

Hi, guys! I'm really excited to share this plan with me with you all today. It's using the Pink Lemonade kit from Scribble Prints Co. I think it's absolutely stunning and works perfectly in August in the 2016 Erin Condren Planner. Be sure to stop by my Youtube channel to see the links for everything mentioned below, as well as, a $10 off coupon for your first Erin Condren purchase, which will definitely come in handy when the new planners launch on June 1st!!

And for a little bit better of a view without the writing over the top, I included this picture. I love the little functional chore stickers that I used on Thursday, but I covered them up in the first picture.

April Photo-a-Day: my month in pictures

April was a hectic, but good month. I had a stress test to see how my heart was doing with the meds and it was perfect. The cardiologist was very happy about it. So that stress test ended up being the decider for a road trip up to Ohio to go to my sister-in-law Kathleen's baby shower. She's due in like a little over 2 weeks and I'm so excited. It will be my first nephew!! :) So let's get into this month in pictures...

I ended up straightening up my desk and it's been staying pretty neat. So proud haha // Saydee girl
I honestly don't know what filter did this, but it was a super dark picture and then it turned all artsy-fartsy // LOVE this monthly view kit for June!!

Plan With Sarah E. | 3

Thankfully my phone takes much better quality photos than my webcam does video...and it's supposed to be my high speed new 720p quality webcam that auto-focuses. -_-

Anyways! I'm back for another Wednesday Plan With Sarah E. and this one features a mystery kit from Oh Hello Stationery Co. The theme was "Life's a Picnic" and even though I had to stray from my typical layout, I really like how this one turned out. I did pull in a few stickers from other places, but a majority is from Oh Hello Stationery Co. Visit this video on Youtube to get links to the shops, a $10 coupon code for your first purchase from Erin Condren, and more!

Bout of Books 16 [Goals & Progress]

Bout of Books

Hello, fellow bookworms!! :) It is my 13th time participating in BOB and I'm going to keep my goals simple and my progress in between doing a daily update, making a huge post, and doing one continuous update, making a small, small post. I'm currently reading "The Wicked Will Rise" by Danielle Paige and "We Should Hang Out Sometime" by Josh Sundquist. Starting at 53% and 34%, respectively.

**Read a little every day
**Finish one book


I feel like I made a great deal of progress during the readathon this time. I went from 53% to 68% in The Wicked Will Rise. I went from 34% to 100% in We Should Hang Out Sometime (and reviewed it!). And lastly, I started Extraordinary Means and have ended the readathon at 45%. Over 400 pages read and 1 book finished. I read each day and that makes me happy!

Sunday Spread | 2

Hi, guys! My Sunday Spread walk-through is up and you can watch it below. It's a wee late in the day because we spent it celebrating two birthdays and Mother's Day with the family, but it is up! I used a bunch of leftover stickers up - a majority from Little Dog Paper Co (formerly Alex Studio) and a few from The Planner Junkie, Oh Hello Stationery Co, and One Orange Snowflake. Visit my Youtube channel for links to their shops. And stop by my Instagram for a closer view of this spread: First Half | Second Half

Books I Read in April

Inherit the Stars by Tessa Elwood - 4 stars (finished 4/4)

I love how this book combined monoarchy type "kingdoms" and space. Kingdoms include multiple planets, not just some land on one planet. Asa is a daughter of House Fane, a house that is infected by Blight, running out of food and fuel. Whilest Asa's eldest sister, Wren, is in a coma, her other older sister, Emmie, is promised to the heir of House Westlet in a treaty between the two houses. Asa basically screws that whole thing up - drugs Emmie and marries Eagle, the Westlet heir in an attempt to right her wrongs...but she ends up wronging more wrongs.

Plan With Sarah E. | 2

Hello, everyone! I am back again with another Plan With Me video. This one is using a kit from NicoleAlexiaDesigns and the kit is called "Geo Confetti" - I love the bright colors in it and the geometric designs are so pretty.  I was a little indecisive in my video, but finally got what I wanted. Stop by Youtube to get a coupon code to buy an Erin Condren and check out what stuff I use in my planner.

May TBR List + Upcoming Releases

So I was at 5 books behind and got down to 4 and now I'm up to 6. OUCH. It's going to be a busy week for me, but I'm hoping that the upcoming Bout of Books readathon will get me caught up.

Sunday Spread | 1

Hello, everyone! Up until I hit my Plan With Me spreads in late summer, I decided to share my weekly spreads via video. I didn't want the current weeks' spreads to be left out since the Plan With Me spreads are way in the future. I wanted these stickers/kits to be in the spotlight a little...hence, Sunday Spread! I also posted a closer up view on Instagram: First Half | Second Half

This week I used a mystery kit from Little Dog Paper Co on Etsy. It happened to be the February mystery kit and it is travel themed. I have links on my Youtube channel to pretty much everything, so be sure to stop by there!
