Mine. Mostly my week in the life. I didn't ask my husband or children to take pictures at their work/school, and since it was my first week of school, it's very Kim centric. And I'm OK with that.
Jake LOVES to help load the dishwasher. It's really annoying. So I took of Dan struggling with it.
My afternoon session starts at 1:10, so at 1 pm when my alarm went off, I was getting ready to leave my classroom to greet my students and get the afternoon session started.
Dan and I did a stock up run to Sam's Club. Our typical run means toilet tissue, yogurt, fruit (love their grapes), protein bars (we eat the Nature Valley kind for breakfast and then I get some from the health food section for my lunches), and dog food. Jakey likes Cesar dog food. The vet says it's not good for him. Jakey says he doesn't care. We compromise by mixing half healthy dry with the soft stuff he loves.
I spent as much time as possible laying around and reading. It wasn't as much time as I would have liked, but I did manage to finish my book.
My alarm went off while I was planning on Sunday morning. Everyone else was at the zoo, I had finished my book, so I had fun decorating. This is my new Happy Planner and stickers from Libbie and Co. Very happy with both. If you are a planner and haven't tried these stickers, do. And if you're considering getting a planner and don't want to spend a lot of money, I highly recommend the Happy Planner. You can pick them up at Hobby Lobby for $25 (and if you get a 40% off coupon, like I did, even cheaper). Select Michaels stores also carry them.
This is my old Hayden Bo. I don't post much about him because he prefers to spend his days under the bed. His nails are horribly long in this picture. I clipped them myself (so scary) later that day. I know he's getting old and his quality of life is not good, but I just haven't had the day where I think he's in too much pain. It's coming and I'm trying to accept it.
I ended up taking 5-8 pictures each day. I'll be editing them this week, sending for printing and then putting them together during my long Labor Day weekend. Can't wait to share that with you!
For the first time ever, I participated in the Week in the Life project this year. It's a project created by Ali Edwards that encourages you to tell the story of one week in your life (and/or your family's life). Here's more about this project: Our Days Are Built With Stories.
In order to keep myself on track with this project, I set alarms to go off every two hours on my phone. I started at different times every morning so the pictures wouldn't be the same. And when I was working, I let it go if I was teaching or otherwise busy when the alarm went off. So here's a little glimps at Monday through Thursday in pictures:
Pizza for lunch at work.
My classroom. Ready to go.
Dressed up for my first day of parent conferences. (In pre-K, we do conferences before school starts.)
Flowers from Dan for our anniversary. Actually arriving on our anniversary. They're gorgeous and I kept them in my classroom this week.
On the way to work Wednesday, I stopped and picked up a pop at a convenience store on the way to work. I needed it.
Driving home. I take surface streets because I hate fighting traffic after a long day at work.
Wednesday was a sale day at Teachers Pay Teachers, so my email inbox was pretty full.
I enlisted Dan's help to take a photo of me getting ready on the first day of school. The shirt is very bright and it made me happy. It's also some kind of slick material and I figured the sweat would run right off it.
First day of school = pizza delivery. I'm a little tired of ye olde Pizza Hut at this person (had it Monday for lunch, Thursday for dinner, and Friday for lunch) but when it's the only place that delivers and you're not in the mood to go out, you eat it.
I'll be back with some weekend pictures on Thursday! Come back tomorrow for some planner pictures!
You guys, the newest kit out at DigitalProjectLife and also in the physical Project Life shop is Everday Core Edition. And it's amazing. If you loved Midnight, you'll love this. If you like black and white with punches of color, you'll love it. I suspect you'll just love it. Period.
Here's my digital layout using this collection:
I used Template A and Template U (I think!) for this layout. And I'll also be using pieces of the Everyday core edition in my Week in the Life album, which I hope to put together over Labor Day weekend. More on that tomorrow...
Hi everyone! This is my weekly post where I show my weekly planner layout off. I decorate on Saturday or Sunday, fill it out each evening before I go to bed (and oh, how I treasure my nightly planner time) and then share the finished week here on Wednesdays. Here's this past week:
After a haircut on Saturday. I was trying to grow out the asymmetrical bob, but I got so tired of it looking ratty that I just had them chop it back so it looks cute again. I mean... I was feeling like I look a little Big Boo-ish with this cut, but it works for me. And that's what matters.
And the flowers that were accidentally delivered a week early...
And should be delivered again today... I'm ready for week 2 of gorgeous flowers!
And the sugar cookies from my favorite bakery... so sweet!
