My new planner!! Isn't it beautiful?! Nothing brings me more joy than paper, pens, and planners.

 I love all of the tabs and how everything is perfectly organized. For me, I love having a full monthly view and a weekly view to plan my weeks. I use the monthly view to write down when all of my bills are due that month. Including extra expenses we will have that month. (For example, a birthday party, or family outing)  

I then use the back folder flaps for paid and unpaid bills, as well as stamps and coupons I'll eventually use!  

Organization Heaven! Tabs!!

My favorite feature is that there are check marks to make your list for each day of the week! I write out every Sunday what I have to get done on a specific day, and then use these sticky notes I got from the dollar spot at Target for activities we'll do that week with the kids. (Or I'll use the stickies to remind me to Instagram for the blog)

For $35 this planner is the absolute best! It's beautiful, keeps me productive, and it's an 18 month planner. Get your planner for 2018, in July 2017, from Rifle Paper Co!! It'll be worth the investment I promise. (PS - Erin Condren planners are amazing but are twice as much money.... this planner has all the same features)

What to do when waiting for your pediatrician!

Who likes waiting an hour or so for their child’s pediatrician?! Liam doesn’t:

I must admit that it’s really difficult to keep a little one sitting still or entertained at a place where there’s nothing to do. But, I remind myself that the pediatrician will stay with me and answer all of my questions for as long as I need her to. So, I don’t get too upset about having to wait.

I’ve come up with a few go-to’s while waiting at the doctors!

1. Bring Snacks!

2. Books & Small Toys

3. Bring a few crayons for them to color all over that paper cover on the table they sit on!

4. When all else fails…. I guess the iPhone of videos and music will help pass the time too!
