Hello, dearies! I hope this Friday morning finds you leaping out of bed, chanting “It’s Friday! It’s Friday!” as you go to prepare your morning coffee and start this glorious day! Let us start off our weekend with vim, vigor, and, if you need a little extra pep in your step, blasting Eye of The Tiger. That will get the blood flowing! *Note: watching my kid do her “push-ups” next to her daddy with that song playing in the background is pretty much the best sight ever.
This week has been a full one for us. Lots going on with work for my hubby, many tasks and projects to complete, and preparations for my parents and little sis coming into town tomorrow. *Hands being thrown into the air. There’s been much to get done and, very thankful for this, it is all somehow getting done. I do love a good productive week. My organization-loving heart takes such delight in crossing things off my to-do list. Last year, my memory apparently decided it had enough so if I don’t write down important happenings, to-do’s, appointments, or plans it is 98% likely that I will forget. So, a planner, to-do app, sticky notes, and notepads are absolute necessities in our little casa.
J and I both use this to-do app from iTunes and love it. It’s simple, has exactly what we need and is very user-friendly. And if you don’t like that one there’s about 300 other to-do apps in the iTunes store.
As previously stated, a planner and notepad are must-haves for me. They both sit out on my desk, which is in our living room, where they are constant, visual reminders for my ever-failing brain. Along with an Anthropologie mug full of my favorite sharpie pens and mechanical pencils.
I loved the quote below. What a great reminder to do the things that we do well and not rush through them just so we can get to the next thing.
Coffee is a must for any day in our home, and days where productivity is especially necessary always means more than one. We have been loving, oh so much, J’s Chemex my parents gifted him at Christmas.
Comfort is necessary to me when I’m focused on cranking out tasks and this week I’ve been living in my new Gap jeans with a loose, cozy sweater and my converse sneakers.
And I must always have tunes. Depending on what must be completed I will listen to one of my variety of Pandora stations including Classical, 80’s pop, Sovereign Grace, The Civil Wars, Frank Sinatra, or stations based off a soundtrack.
