NewYork 2016: Week One

image  August 30th,2016, I flew from Oklahoma to New York to Visit my big sister and my nephew. I have not seen them in six months, and with everything that I am going through mentally and emotionally it was very much needed to be around my sister.  I have been to New York before but, not long enough to enjoy the air.

Flying out of Will Rogers airport at 11:30 am to Charlotte,North Carolina for a 3 hour layover, which was not that bad. It was so awesome to be in the Tar Heel State, and even with tempation of Tar Heel and Panther apparel everywhere i kept my composure.

When I was flying over New York and saw the lights it was super beautiful! Seeing my sister was awesome, I did not cry at all, I am sure leaving will cause water works though.

DAY ONE : Wednesday August 31st,2016

Got my metro card(transportation pass) and we went grocery shopping as well as checking Target for planner goods.  It is a lot of walking but, definitely not something to complain about . I am getting all my exercise while  I  am here .

DAY TWO: Thursday September 1st,2016

It was a very gloomy day and it was raining so we stayed inside all day. My sister and I were planing in our Happy Planners while my nephew was sleep. We ate some yummy Chili and Sweet potato fries.  Watches the Secret life of Pets, which was a cute movie . We were jamming to Pandora and just bonding with each other, telling her about love, work and other everyday things.

DAY THREE: Friday September 2nd,2016

My sister was OFF and we went to NYC! Time Square is an amazing place to be! Went to the Disney store, couldn’t find the Little Mermaid collection that I was looking for but, it was an experience . Met some Rappers that were selling their cds, and pursuing their dreams. The Naked Cowboy and cast members of Broadway shows were on the sidewalks as we traveled to other parts of NYC.

DAY FOUR: Saturday September 3rd,2016  

Exploring with my Sister , Nephew and my brother in laws  roommate (Who gave me my Bluetooth headset) went to wall street , and staten island where I got on the Staten Island Ferry and see the Statue Of Liberty. The beautiful Skyline of Manhattan from the boat.  Another amazing trip to Time Square where it got a little dark and you can see a little more of the lights of the beautiful scenery. A street performance was doing flips and somersaults over people.  Watched a Spraypaint artist create a painting of New York City and it was really beautiful. We went to the first part of Central Park, which is  a Huge by the way!!! Rice Black beans and Chicken is was was for dinner.

My first Planner meetup! Which was the most amazing thing to encounter! I met some of the owners of my Favorite Etsy Sticker shops, learning about the background stories on how they started planning. My Planner Buddy Jennifer Sole was there and it was pleasure meeting her as well. Super sweet person. Learning about different planners . Finding my new Target Dollar Spot Planner..

DAY SIX : Monday September 5th,2016

HAPPY LABOR DAY!!! It was a chill and have a rest day for everyone. Washed some laundry, which took about an hour, walked back to the house… and just relaxed , watched Youtube Videos on Travelers Notebooks, and Plan With me’s, while I assembled my new Target Dollar Spot Planner. Finished the day with a Chicken Salad which was super yummy.

PlanWithMe:ThisWeek Nov.9 -Nov.15th

This months theme is Disney Princess and Villians. I chose this theme due most of my favorite Disney movies came out in November. I don’t know one little girl who didn’t grow up with these amazing stories made enjoyable for Disney! There are so many amazing princesses that make amazing learning lessons.

SnowWhite: Being kind is beautiful.Being pretty is nice, but being kind is even better. Being the “fairest in the land” is worth nothing if you have an ugly heart and a mean spirit.

Pocahontas: Learn to accept differences.Don’t be afraid of people who are different than you are. Our differences are what make us beautiful.

Cinderella: Attitude is everything.Even when circumstances weren’t the best, Cinderella chose to have a good attitude and stay positive. I hope that you will learn to do the same.

Brave: I will always love you.There will be times when we will disagree. I may want different things for your life than what you want, but always know that even though we may not always see eye to eye…at the end of the day I will always love you and be there for you.

PlanWithMe:Last Week Speard Oct.19-25 Recap

Another busy week has came and gone! Time is moving so fast nowadays it’s crazy!! So much had to be done this week and not even finished. My nieces Sweet 7 is next Saturday and I had to make sure she will be having a great time! We have very special visitors coming into town next friday and it’s super exciting. I received my brand new printer on Friday as well as some nice new stickers for my planner . She also got another make over! I received a New cover with my company logo on it!!! Still waiting on my jacket to get here 😔


I added Ghoulia to the spread because she is like Cleos sidekick almost. I didn’t have a sticker for Duece but in the honor of my niece and her party… I am trying to get into the monster high atmosphere I’ve been watching the new movie Boo York which is actually pretty good.

 Since I didn’t have anything with duece on it I drew it in!  oh my Ra ! I truly lik last weeks layout.

Received some happy mail Saturday  from Planner_boutique. They super cute  and very vibrant in color.

I’m in a couple of planner groups on Facebook and one of the members had this amazing ideas about sections in her planner so I borrowed her idea and made my own.  I love my happy planner so much that I been thinking about getting another one but I love to haw all my things in one place. I added sections that would help me be better as being organized and professional.

1. A section to record all graphics made. Place inboxes and other important details that have to do wit Mxdbreedgraphix.

2. When working for an organization you want to make sure you keep every paper meeting agenda in one spot.i am the marketing and apical Mesa coordinator so I want to be as professional as possible.

3. One of the most important sections in my planner ! The planner buddy section where I keep track of people who are my monthly buddies , or exchange friends. I keep track on incoming mail as well as when mail goes out. Each monthly buddy has a section were their name address and badge and lies are placed as well as letters and cards to have them in a safe place💕

PlanWithMe: Last Week Spread Oct.5th-Oct.11th Recap

image It has been a very eventful week, I truly can admit that!As you guys know my theme for October is Monster High in celebration of my niece who is turning 7 on the 29th of this month. There has been a lot of planning for her special day going on, invitation is finished, lists of what is needed are made. Lagoona Blue is character of the week! My week started off kind of pointless, due to the fact I had Jury Duty but did not get chosen to serve. Temperatures this week were not to bad either, was not too hot but not cold .. unless you live in my house but with it being fall its nice to have windy days. I have been working on the promotional and graphics for the Southwest Grave Diggers, Flyers, Business cards, and more. The last tryout for the team is October 17th,2015 .

Its been a few days since I talked to my Twin, I got a chance to talk to her and my entire week ended up amazing. She knows me so well .. when you have friends that truly love you and care about your well being its just an amazing feeling.  I was going to do a Halloween giveaway with some extra pages of Darice Halloween Sticker Books but because I didn’t think about in time I decided not to do it. My Planner Buddies Shannon Green, Angel Reed, and Gisel Ochoa have or are receiving some great gifts that i ordered this week, as well as my secret Elf Andrea who sent me some very much needed PENS that I love, will be getting a nice thank you gift as well.

When getting a Planner Buddy its not limited to how many you can have. I have 4 of them. Angel Reed is my very first one and I am very blessed to have all my planner buddies, and the fact that we’re all pretty new to this community of Plannings its very inspiring. Angel has been just a great help and inspiration. We have been planner buddies for about two months now. We started in August.  Very happy and blessed to have her.

My Planner got a makeover the weekend! New Rings!!! I have rings up for giveaway once I figure out what I am going to do with them. I love the tealish big rings! I was going to use the pink and teal ones but they have such a contrast in size that they are going to make the planner look odd.
