Okay are you ready??? This is going to be a long one. Okay so if you follow me on instagram (sweet_aimee81) you know I didn't fall off the face of the earth I have just had my hands full. I have been doing lots of things. I have been journaling daily. I started decorating each page just a bit about a month ago.
I have a helper who is constantly by my side and it is hard to get the laptop out to blog because he is pushing keys and deleting things and driving me crazy. This is him helping pick up my Theresa Collins sequins (he is obsessed and dumps them daily)
I ordered a cakedori aka fauxdori off cakepaperie on etsy It is a book that you add notebooks into. I have 3 journal booklets going in there right now. I love it I use it everyday and here are some ways I have been using it. (and I am on a april no buy lol)
I have been doing #listersgottalist on instagram I do a list a day following theresetgirls list. I have loved doing this. I do one a day and instagram it. Some are fun, some make me think, but I love it.
I have been documenting a tiny bit of each day in my heidi swapp memory planner I got before christmas. I have been doing this since the first of the year. I think I will do a video on some of these new things at some point to show you guys how I am using them.
I got a color crush planner and I have been using this for my calender
I love it I got the teal and I am using my disc bound for house hold things I don't have to keep with me at all times (budget bills work hours ect.)
I was super sick last week so I was relaxing drinking tea trying to feel better I also threw my back out
I did a smidge of smashbooking
While I was sick last week this also happened. Shelby (aka monkey butt) had a accident at school and she got stitches on her chin and broke her knee cap!!! So she is in a brace for a month.! (her stitches just came out yesterday)
For my birthday me and evea (aka fire monster) got a hair cut. It was her first hair cut by anyone but me and her first haircut in a salon!!! Lol she liked it.
We also bought a mini van. I was time we traded up. We were just too cramped in our sedan. So we took a road trip to Omaha to the Omaha zoo.
It was just a over night trip..a mini vacation. We had soooo much fun and really needed a get away because it has been a stressful year so far. I have been to tons of zoos in my life we were members of the Minnesota zoo always when we lived in the cities but Omaha zoo it awesome. It is like the Minnesota zoo The Sioux falls zoo, Underwater world, and the Como zoo crammed into one and more. We walked 6.5 hours and missed three buildings.
We started to get some nice weather and my hubby built my swinging bench I scored at end of season last year for 25$!!! I love love love swinging benches. It is my thing.
Before we had nice weather I knit max some mittens. They are cute little hedgehogs.
And I knit a cover for a hot water bottle. A g.f./pen pal from united kingdom convinced me I needed one and she was sooo right. I use it to warm up the bed when its cold. I use it to help with my back pain. I use it for all kinds of stuff.
Speaking of penpals, that has been another huge thing I have been doing I have a handful of penpals So I have been writing them and sending out snail mail. I have also done pocket letters. I have made some amazing friends with the penpal thing and am feeling so blessed to have had some amazing women come into my life. :) Well my little monster will be up from his nap anytime So I need to get a few things done.
