kikki.K & Vera Bradley Shopping!!

This year I have many goals I want to accomplish and one of them is getting organized!  So I decided to start using planner again, but I quickly realized that I can't take my planner everywhere.  As you can see in this post, its too big to keep in my handbag all of the time.  I take it to work all of the time, but when I go shopping, I can't really keep it with me.  I had to come up with an idea to still keep something with me that would work with my planner but that I can take with me.  That's when I saw this vlog from Organized Jen where she reviewed the kikki.K planners.  I loved the look of these planners, but I already had one.  I went to the kikki.K website and decided to check them out, I was thinking that the smaller size would work for me.  I was in luck - it was on sale so I decided to buy it - along with a set of pens :)  I couldn't help it!



Love the look & how small it is - perfect for any of my handbags!


I did personalize it with some stickers I had.  I added a saying to each divider- 




I'm not using this small planner like I do my other planner, this is just to jot down reminders and shopping lists.  Anything that I need to be reminded of while I'm on the go!  I also keep my Sams Club and BJ's membership cards in here - since my shopping list will always be here - this has turned into my shopping companion - I love it!!

I also did some shopping around after seeing many planner posts from other people on Instagram and You Tube.  I checked out the Vera Bradley website and ended up buying a new Ipad cover and binder clips.  Here they are:


Love the packaging - so cute!


Another step towards organization!!!  Up next - my filing system which is currently non-existent!

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.














After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.


Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
