Let's Have Coffee

I always have different odds and ends that I want to talk about, but I don't really need a whole post for it.  So I'm sticking with my "Lets Have Coffee" posts.


Have you guys ever tried vloging?  Oh my word!  I hope I'm not the only one who has tried and feels like a complete idiot!  I've found that I say "Um" at the beginning of each sentence.  I found the need to buy a good concealer or foundation... as I've found that my mirror lies, and...  I need braces.  Yep.  Attempting to vlog has taught me all that.  No public speaking for me anytime soon.  So for all of you who can vlog and actually walk away from it without a lower self esteem... hats off to you!  ;)
My new planner arrived last week!  I went with the Simplified planner again this year.  I still really wish that the Simplified planner and the Erin Condren planner would merge, but until they do, I've went with the Simplified planner once more... and all because of how the individual days are lined out.  You've got to find what works for you and go with it, right?!
It's a bit hard to see, but I love the layout. The left side has where you can schedule your day accordingly and then on the right side shows your to do list for the day.  At the bottom there is a section to write in what you're having for dinner, and then there is blank spot on the other side for you to fill in whatever you wish.  It's almost the perfect planner.

Do you have a favorite planner?


I'm planning on taking down our Christmas decorations in the next couple of days, but I think it always makes the house look a little plain and boring.  The house goes from being all decked out in greenery with red accents, to beige, and white.   Tell me somebody struggles with this as well!  I'm hoping to look for a couple of new house decor pieces, but I'm not sure what I'll find.  If you have any fun places you like to shop online, let me know!


I was on Pinterest looking for ideas on the best ways to declutter the house.  I know how to declutter, but it's motivating to see it or read about it.  Something about a new year, makes me want to Spring clean like crazy.  Here are a couple of lists that I found and liked.  I mean, who doesn't like a good list.



Okay, give me some tips.  What's your favorite planner?  Best advice on decluttering?  Do you vlog and have advice for me?
Have a great day!



  1. I have yet to find a planner that I love. Maybe I'm too picky haha! We decluttered majorly last year. I wrote a post on it. I start with things that aren't sentimental and ask if they bring me joy. If no, they are out. Check out Wayfair for decor. Love them!

  2. I just got the Erin Condren Life Planner, but I also received a different one for Christmas. Not sure which one I will like best. There's just something about cleaning and decluttering that gets me at the beginning of the year. I'm dragging my feet on taking down the Christmas decorations!

    1. I loved my Erin Condren planner, especially how I could personalize the cover. I finally just took my Christmas decorations down yesterday. I put it off as long as I could.

  3. I bit the bullet and bought an Erin Condren planner on Cyber Monday. I like to see my month all at once (old school). I just sat down last night and put all the birthdays in and any schedule appointments and some "link ups" for blogging. Ready to roll 2017!!!!
