    Erin Condren Academic Planner Review + Giveaway!!

    I have really decided to take planning seriously.  Why?  Because it has really helped to keep me organized and accountable to myself. I have an everyday planner and a social media planner.  And now I have a lesson planner. My planner friend, Johanna, gifted me an Erin Condren Academic Planner. We teamed up to do a collaboration review of the planner. While Johanna used her planner as a wellness/budget planner, I decided to use mine for lesson planning.

    Merry Christmas 2018

    Whether you receive everything you want today or you receive nothing at all, remember to be grateful and thankful for all that you have.  Because there is always someone that is in a worse situation. This time of year, try to forget the commercialization of it and remember the true meaning behind Christmas.  Remember that God sent His only son here to be born in a manger so that He may be our Savior!  God bless you all!

    How I Became a Planner Babe

    **This post contains some affiliate links. Planners, and stickers and washi!! Oh my!! Yes, that’s what has become of my life and my world.  Planning.  Who knew that I would become a sticker obsessed planner babe?!
