Weekly Favorites

Happy Friday!!

I can't believe it's already the first Friday of November!  Time is flying by lately and I hate that.  My goal for the rest of 2017 is to knock out some lingering projects, sell all the planners and just enjoy the holiday season with Jared and our family.  2018 is going to be about resting and a slower pace.  

I have lots of exciting favorites & updates to share with you today!

- I'm in LOVE with my new Instant Pot.  If you don't have one of these yet, check them out!  They would make great Christmas gifts to put on your list or to gift to others.  I'm amazed by what I can do with mine so far.  Once I've made more meals in it, I'm going to do a full post on my favorite ways to use it!

- Essential Planners are now on Amazon!! I'm so excited about this.  Growing this brand and company has been the hardest job I've ever done but I love every minute of it.  Check them out and buy one for yourself and a few extra for Christmas gifts this year :)  You can purchase them on Amazon (daily navy, weekly navy, daily blush, weekly blush) or on our website.

- This weekend is going to be pretty low key and for that I'm so thankful!  With the holidays coming soon our weeks and weekends will be packed so we're trying to enjoy any free time we have right now.

- We are finishing up the last few projects in our house & that has me super excited for a couple of reasons.  One, I can finally share some more before & afters with you all!  Two, our house will finally feel complete.  Three, add all the Christmas decor to a complete house and I'll be one happy girl :)

- I am working on organizing all our print photos.  My order of these containers arrived this week & I can't wait to finish sorting and labeling all my photos!  I'm still struggling on the digital organization front & need your help though!  My iPhone has 11,000 photos on it.  Seriously.  I downloaded Google Photos but it's taking like all day to download a few hundred photos.  Does anyone have any faster options they would recommend to get all these photos off my phone?

- We are cleaning out our attic, purging and organizing & labeling all our stuff and that makes this organization obsessed gal very happy!  I'm going for more classic & traditional decor this year and getting rid of any "extra."  I'm excited to see how it turns out and to have a more organized storage space.

- I am starting the Proverbs 31 Anxious for Nothing bible study next week with Lauren (my friend & my brother's girlfriend) and we're so excited for it!  If you feel overwhelmed, anxious and stressed about getting everything done like we do, then you might enjoy it too!  You can sign up & check out the details here.  This is my first online bible study and I'm excited to see how it goes!  

Hope you all have a fabulous Friday & a wonderful weekend!
