Happy Monday! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. I went to the Grand Opening of Barre Bee Fit Milwaukee, had a double date night to celebrate a friend’s birthday and then it was off to drill. On Sunday, we got hit with some snow. It wasn’t too bad but the roads were AWFUL. I debated on whether to wait to do my grocery shopping until today, but I took my chances and went last night. It was nice because the stores were dead and I was childless 🙂
Over the weekend, I usually plan out our meals for the upcoming week. This helps us to avoid eating out and helps me stick to a grocery list so that I’m not buying random things that we don’t need. Here is what’s for dinner this week:
Monday: Buffalo Chicken Burgers (courtesy of Whole Foods) w/sweet potato tater tots
Tuesday: Crock Pot Verde Stew
Wednesday: Penne with portobella mushrooms, caramelized onions, spinach & goat cheese.
Thursday: Creamy Slow Cooker Tortellini Soup
Friday: Out to dinner
Instead of doing New Year resolutions, I make goals and one of my goals this year to get more organized 🙂 I’m generally a pretty organized person, but life with a toddler and a husband while trying to maintain a bit of a social life can get pretty hectic. I try to write it all down in my planner but there’s not enough room to note my appointments, Madelyn’s appointments and other family stuff we have going on. I’m not a huge fan of relying on technology to do it for me, because one never knows. Enter Erin Condren.
I bought my first Erin Condren planner back in 2011 and I LOVED it. First, there’s a ton of space to write down your schedule. I never ran out of room to write notes. Secondly, you can get them personalized with your name and by adding pictures. Third…they’re really cute 🙂 The pages are colorful and each month includes an inspirational quote. Unfortunately, when my suitcase was stolen last year, my planner was in there Instead of buying another one, I just ran to the closest Target and picked up a planner there because I needed one ASAP. Well, look at what came in the mail today:
Besides offering a full monthly calendar, there’s also a place for you to plan out your week and your day by morning, day and night. They’ve also added a special section to write down workouts for the day & meal plans!This is one of my favorite features. There are pre-made stickers for all sorts of appointments to put on the calendar. It also comes with 2 extra sheets of blank ones to write your own events down.
