Ever since I ordered this back in May, it has started my newest obsession...

Little did I know the community behind these and other planners out there...just do a quick search on pinterest or instagram and you will see what I mean.

Sure, I had a smash book (or two) and even my wedding planner was (and still is) one my favorite planners, but then I realized even my Disney World Passporter was considered a planner as well.

I had to stop myself at one of these, but only because I spotted a cute striped one...

Now with more than half the year over, I am already thinking of my next planner for next year...clicking here or above will take you there (affiliate link) and give YOU $10 off too.

Gobble Gobble

Happy Thanksgiving Week! Last week was a crazy blur of school related activities, but I thought I'd share a cute little treat I made for one of the boys' classes. In the past, they have done a large feast. This year, it just wasn't feasible, but we could bring a treat to share. What better way to celebrate with friends than a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving? I had my idea, I just needed a cute way to do it. Browsing around I found this:
Source This was perfect! It was a little tricky getting 30 of them to school, but I shared a couple extra treats with local friends by adding extra popcorn, pretzels, and jelly beans to a treat bag, then anchored the cone inside and sealed it (next year I'll remember this!) Here is how my version turned out:
These are so quick and easy to make! You just need: jelly beans, popcorn, pretzel sticks, ice cream cones, almond bark, and fall themed/colored sprinkles. Simply melt the almond bark, dip the cones, then sprinkle the sprinkles. I let each dry over wax paper, then filled with jelly beans, pretzel sticks, and popcorn. They were a big hit! I will definitely keep this on my November list for class treats every year!

Top Ten Tuesday:Pin It to Win It from Layla Grayce

So, Layla Grayce just opened a contest for a entry or foyer using pinned items via pinterest. I had a little fun in publisher and decided to add it for my very first Top Ten Tuesday post. Here goes...


1. Love the 'upside-down' view of this lighting

2. This mirror, for those last minute checks out the door...turned sideways to fit over...

3. this console

4. But I want the console in this color

5. And this rug (Oh! This rug! Gotta love Amy Butler...)

6. And this plate stand, I just love it...for my fancy mail

7. Such a pretty place to sit and put your shoes on just before rushing out the door...

8. And a clock to make sure you don't miss your Zumba class...

9. (& 10.) And this pair of doves

Full Disclosure:
I am not being paid to promote Layla Grayce or Pinterest, nor will viewing any of these affect the contest in anyway. Only one link (#4)goes to my pinterest page, and that also has zero effect on the contest. The remaining links do go to Layla Grayce so you can check out all the loveliness. I'm just having a little fun and procrastinating as usual.

Thanks to Oh!Amanda for inspiring me to finally make a top ten list. For more Top Ten Tuesday fun, go here.
