Tomorrow is finally the day I've been waiting for. I leave for Minnesota for a week! I can't wait to relax on the lake, fish, and have some quality bonding time with my boyfriend and his family. I'm stressing a little because I have not yet packed my bags. Ooops. I found a really awesome pin on Pinterest that I plan on using when packing my suitcase. I always struggle with trying to get everything to fit nice and neatly in my tiny suitcase, but with this pin I have found the secrets to stuffing in a weeks worth of clothes and more!
I was just amazed when I read this article. Cant wait to get my packing on!

Her finished product. 

Hope everyone enjoys the week ahead of them I will be taking a little break from blogging and enjoying my vacation.

My New Planner

Planners, Planners, Planners. I just love PLANNERS. I'm excited to show you my new planner that I got yesterday. It's all from Staples. Martha Stewart has her own line in office supplies and Staples is carrying it. I went a little crazy with her products. I love Martha and office supplies.
I love my new planner. It's portable, colorful, and fun. This is great for me because it is hard to find a planner that isn't bulky when you want to add in other areas of your live. Such as maybe Menu Planning or like in mine I have my Workouts, To Do's, and Budget.

My New Planner! I am in love with this color.
I got these (Mr. Sketch) markers from They are great for using in your planner. They don't bleed threw either!

Love the rainbow colors!

Here are my planner supplies I picked up from Staples :)
There are different sized binders. I just got the smaller binder so I can carry it in my purse since I use my planner everyday. The size of mine is a 5 1/2 X 8. Something like that. All I know is its the smaller one and its portable! I liked that you could pick out what you wanted to fill your planner with so I got a little bit of everything (that I would use).
Here is what the inside of my planner looks like!
Decorate your planner with whatever you feel is for you. Make it so you want to open it up and use it. I inserted a picture of me and my boyfriend (from 2 years ago). I could have used something recent, but I like this one :)  These little sticky notes are perfect to! You can jot down anything important you want to remember for the week, month, year, or just because.
Here is a look at what the calendar looks like.
 The calendar filler is monthly. It goes from January 2012 to June 2013. Mine is a little bare now but in time will be completely filled with my busy schedule.
This is a section in my planner dedicated to workouts. 
I have labeled 5 tabs for the most important sections in my planner.
Monthly-Calendar Section
To Do's
This is probably one of the simplest planners I've owned and am really excited to use it because its very portable. I take my planner everywhere I go, it makes me feel so much more organized. 
Would love to see what everyone else's planners look like.
Link up if you like and share what you use everyday to organize your life :)
