My name is Emily and I am a Planner Junkie

A few weeks back, Brandon and I walked into an Office Max to pick up some office supplies.  He mentioned he needed a planner and within 5 minutes of being in the isle he had picked the one he wanted.  I was floored...  I love a new planner, one of the best feelings is cracking the binding on a new year and planning all the greatness ahead.  When I pick a planner I do research.  I read articles, check out reviews, scour blogs for real everyday use tips and tricks, I go a little crazy.  After about a 3 month search I pick my planner and can't wait to start filling it.
 So here we stand in the midst of the search for the perfect 2015 planner and I am staring down some pretty great options. 
 1. Kate Spade - Week planner, simple lines for each day.
2. Emily Ley Simplified Planner - Comes in both Week and Day planner (nice options Emily!)
3. The Day Designer by Whitney English - Daily Planner
 I currently am using The Day Designer for 2014 and I love all the planning aspects and guidance of Whitney's design.  Do I leave comfort of this great planner behind and try something new?
What planner are you looking at for this year?  Am I missing any great options?

Building our first home has been a journey.  We stayed with my in-laws near our lot so we could watch the progress.  Some days were so rewarding as we saw tons of progress while we were away at work, and other days I wanted to rip my hair out wondering what was taking so long!!
My favorite evening activity became going to the property and taking pictures of all the details and now that we are moved in, it is fun to look back as at it all come together.
Here is a little glimpse at our building adventure! (Prepare for picture overload...)

Our Happy Little Home!

Holy Blogging Break

As I sit in our OWN kitchen and type on my little laptop my heart is exploding with excitement over finally being in our home!
We have moved in this week and while we are nowhere near all settled in, we have the kitchen unpacked, a bed in the master bedroom and our living furniture set up in front of the tv for Football watching (Brandon’s top priority, of course!).
I have big plans for this little ole’ blog of mine and now that I have a space to create, I can’t wait to begin… again!
Happy Blogging!!
