06-2018monthly favorites

Hello, I can not believe that June came and went. June is my favorite month of the year it’s probably mostly because it’s my birthday month, but also cause I love Summer!!!  I thought I would share my lifestyle June favorites!

1.) Happy Vibes Jelly Body Balm: My new favorite thing from Bath and Body Works!

2.) TAL Waterbottle: I picked it up at Walmart, it keeps my water cold and I can throw it in my purse and drink it wherever I go whether it’s going to work or hanging out at my parents.

3.) Set it Up: Was my favorite movie in June, it was such a cute movie.  It’s about two corporate executive assistants hatch a plan to match-make their two bosses.

4.) Mildliner Highlighters: I purchased these on Amazon these were a favorite of mine in the crafting/stationary category I use these in my planner.

5.) The Ranch: New tv show me and my hubby has started watching at night before bed.  It is so funny,  it’s a comedy revolving around a former pro football player who returns to Colorado to help run the family ranch business. The show takes place on the fictional Iron River Ranch in Garrison, Colorado, detailing the life of the Bennetts, a dysfunctional family consisting of two brothers, their rancher father, and his separated wife and local bar owner.

How I use my Happy Planners


Hello, I wanted to share why I have 5 happy planners I have and use.  The bottom one is my memory planner, then I have my recipes book, and next is my classic size planner, and then my mini HP, and lastly my catch-all notebook.

So in memory keeping planner, I am going to go back and start scrapbooking the photos I have or things I want to document from 2017 – 2018.  I bought a canon shelphy printer so I can print my photos easily and use them in this Planner.

My recipe book I got on Amazon, and I also want to print off photos of the meals I make and add them to my recipe book.  Then when Ellie gets old enough and has a place of her own, I can give this her as a gift.

My classic size planner is my favorite to write in for my actual planner, and it was the first one I bought.  The only downside is I have been trying to downsize my purse and it makes it hard to carry around every day at work and when I go out, so I have had to carry a separate bag for my planner and accessories.

That’s where the Mini comes in handy.  I use this to carry in my purse and document important dates, todos, shopping list, and whatever I need access to every day or when I am out and about.

Since I switch back and forth between the classic and mini, I got tired of duplicating the fun or informational pages I wanted access to each day or monthly so I created my catch-all notebook.  I made this notebook using HP products.  In this notebook, a few of the things I keep are a journal made from an undated extension pack, list of bills, monthly goals, KiitoCreations craft log, and craft ideas to make or any other list I want to make.

Goodwill Haul | #1

Went to goodwill on my lunch, I try to go once a week or once every two weeks. I have been on myself to only buy things that I really love and not stuff just because it’s really cheap lol. Anybody else have to do this?

Today I found a yoga block to add to my exercise area (I want to learn how to do yoga) I paid $1.99 and it was originally on clearance at target for $9.08. Then I picked up a Apple Watch screen protector for $6.99 originally $14.99, I needed one because the one I had when I first got my watch disappeared so I haven’t had one on for a long time. Oops.

Also I have been looking for a small calendar for at work, because we used to get the small ones that are sticky and I would use it for dates. I have not gotten one for this year and I found this cute one for $.99 I was excited about this. Then I found ChapStick total hydration pack of two in house red and cooling peppermint for $1.09.

That was my little haul for the day!

Have a fabulous day.

Bible journaling | My first experience

I bought a bible journal from Amazon a while back when I wanted to get into bible journaling.  But then it sat on the shelf for probably about half a year cause I was too intimidated to start.  I would sit for hours a long time on Instagram and Pinterest looking at all the amazing and creative spreads.  But just could not get myself to actually create a spread.  I craft a lot in general so I had some supplies on hand I just could not bring myself to start that first page.

So when Christmas rolled around I picked up some actual bible journaling supplies from a Lifeway store. They had some illustrated faith supplies on sale that I had been eyeballing from Instagram #illustratedfaith #biblejournaling.

So once Christmas came and went and we all got settled down I finally picked a night and got all my supplies out and created these three spreads.  I don’t think it’s too bad for my first time.  I was happy with them, and it got me excited to get into the bible.

Do you bible journal and if so what is your #1 must have?




I can’t believe it is 2018.  I know with a new year that means some people try to have resolutions and goals; I am one of those people.  I told myself I wanted to eat better, spend less, and all the normal things I want every year.  But then I get upset in the middle of the month when I don’t follow through with them, anyone else that way?

So this year I want to focus on actually being the best version of my self and working on that each and every day.  I know there will be days I may fail but I want to just let that go and keep working harder towards my goals and not give up just because I had a bad day.  I think if I change my mindset it will help me become the best version of myself which is someone who is grateful, caring, selfless and be all around good person.

What are some goals you have for this year?



Hello, it has been a while since I have blogged.  It is Saturday morning and I am sitting here drinking some sweet tea, blogging and watching my kids color and work on learning work books.

I got to sleep in a little this morning and my awesome husband made me a breakfast sandwich and then watched the kids so I could go into town alone. 🙂  That means I got to go to Dollar Tree, Goodwill, Walmart without having to get kids in and out of the car, no tears or tantrums, overall it was a peaceful time that this momma needed.  I think this should be a once a week thing!  I don’t think my husband or wallet would agree.  HAHA

Anyway just wanted to share what I was doing  today and what I am planning for the blog.  I would like to start blogging again and using this blog for a personal outlet.  To share anything I love, want to talk about,  and experiencing in life.  Pretty much all about my life as a full time working, wife, mommy, and crafter/photographer wannabe.

Stay tuned for more from me..
