Happy Friday! I feel like I’ve been anticipating this weekend since school began 7 weeks ago. I’m not sure if it’s the same in the rest of the the country but in Minnesota we have what’s called MEA weekend and it’s the first “break” the kids have during the school year. This week is MEA week so the kids have been off from school since yesterday. If I think I’m happy about fall break, I can’t imagine how my teacher friends feel! Praise the lord for all the teachers out there. #howdotheydoit #theyresaintsitellyou
1. Emily Ley’s Simplified Planner
I’m still reading “Grace not Perfection” by Emily Ley and love the design esthetic of her book so I decided to look more into her simplified planners. I’m running out of months in my current Erin Condren planner, which I love, but I want to try something new. I ordered the weekly planner instead of the daily because I typically don’t use all of the space a daily planner has. I choose the gold pineapple design but there were two others to choose from. They were sold out on Emily’s sight so I googled her planner and found that they are also sold on a website called Swoozies.com…I think I could get myself into trouble here because they’ve got a lot of random things that I could convince myself that I need. You should definitely check it out and thank me later!
2. Beautiful Fall Weather
Jared and I are headed to Chicago this weekend for a little getaway and I packed one of my favorite pairs of shoes. Have you ever tried Tieks?! They’re a ballet flat but not JUST any ballet flat…they are the most comfortable pair of flats you will EVER wear. They come in a zillion different patters and colors too. I was gifted my first pair by one of my best friends who, lucky for me, also has amazing style! I have the ballet slipper pink ones and I’ve found them to be super versatile. I think next on my wish list would be a pair of black ones.
4. Field Trips
A couple of weeks ago I went on a field trip with Laney’s school to the Zoo. I love joining the kids on field trips and spending time with them at school. Although, I will say let’s give a shoutout to the teachers again (#stilldontknowhowtheydoit)…those kids were everywhere at the zoo! Laney didn’t want her pic taken so I don’t have many!
That’s a wrap for Favorites this Friday, thanks for visiting!
