Weekly Spread!

Hey there!

I hope you all are having an awesome Sunday!

I started my day with my horsey crew in Hinesburg, which I always love. Something about the old barn and the quiet old horses that match is just my happy place.

Then I came home and got BoGo all suited up for his first trail run! I decided to do Eagle Mountain in Georgia, because it’s relatively easy and has a lot of different loops and it’s 99% shaded. I wasn’t sure how he was going to do on leash and jogging over the terrain, but he was a super star. We did a total of 4 miles together and I felt awesome at the end.

After our run, we came home and I picked up the house so I could settle down to finish my book for this week. Bogan used that opportunity to take a solid nap. He didn’t even want to share my blueberries, he was so tired!

It didn’t last long, though, because one of my good friends came over to hike the back woods with me, and Bo came along for that as well. I think he prefers the back yard hikes, since he can be off leash the entire time. We ended up getting mildly lost on the way back, and had to do some literal tromping through the brambles before we flew off in different directions; is there really such a thing as a quick hike?

Liam is home from his weekend with his Dad, and we had our usual Sunday night movie before he went off to bed! I don’t allow much TV watching, so this is always a special treat for him. Plus I get to soak up the snuggles after being away from him for a few days!

After an episode of Dino Trux, his bedtime read, and snuggling him into his crib, I was able to get to my Sunday night routine of spicing up my planner for the week!

To say I love paper planning is an understatement, and probably something that deserves its own post. I’d love to add my Sunday night spreads to my blogging rotation, as it’s something that not only gives me a quiet creative outlet, but also really motivates me to stay organized. I find I have so much less anxiety if I can keep control of my schedule. I have my planner open on my desk, and I love knowing what my week is going to be like, updating as things change, and having something fun to look at in the process.

I do my planning in a Recollections vertical style planner that I picked up at Michael’s with a 50% off coupon. I love shopping at Michael’s because I usually have a 40-50% off coupon waiting in the app, and things go on sale very often. It’s a really budget friendly way to have fun with it! There is also a huge network of Etsy shops to help out with things you might want customized!

Believe it or not, there is also a huge community that goes along with planning; while it has its fair share of drama it reminds me a lot of the horsey community in the way everybody bands together to help one another. It is also the most open minded group of people I have ever met. The community will meet you where you’re at, regardless of your mental or physical struggles. It’s not just incredibly empowering but also infinitely comforting.

I hope you guys have a relaxing Sunday night, and are ready to tackle your Monday like the badasses I know you are!
