Day Zero Project #2

I loved the Day Zero Project that I did last time (January 1, 2012 - September 22, 2015) so much that I decided to make a new list and start again!  It's good to have goals.  Join me, if you like!  Just write 101 goals and give yourself 1001 days to complete them.  (I found this idea on Our Footprints On The World.  Unfortunately, I didn't complete all 101 goals from last time so I'm going to carry a few over.  This is FUN!

McDonalds and Coke Related Saturday Laughs (not sponsored)

5. McDonalds Laugh: They set up balloons in hilarious fashion to celebrate and advertise that they're now doing breakfast all day.  Cupcakes and I were quite amused. 4. Another McDonalds Laugh: We went to a new McDonalds near by and they have a light up table!  The dots change color when you touch them.  My kids loved the dots, but I honestly think my husband liked this table the most.  Do any of you have a table like this at your McDonalds?? (This post is NOT sponsored by McDonalds.) 3. … [Read more...]

Theme: October is Here! Colors: Purple Materials: Halloween Washi: Dollar Tree ($1) Halloween Stickers: Michael's ($1 for the book) New Stuff Since I started blogging about planning, I've wondered how other Planner Addicts get such brightly lit photos of their pages.  Thanks to one of my Facebook Planning groups, I got some great advice.  Part of that advice (which I've utilized here) is to use the photo editing app, Photoshop Express (which is free - yay!).  It's made quite a … [Read more...]

Toddler Gymnast, Ninja Turtles & Other Saturday Laughs

5. This is Tootsie Roll trying to imitate Cupcakes doing a "bridge up".  I think for a one year old, this is a pretty amazing job.  Also, he has an apple slice in his mouth. 4.

We were trying to find the turtles' weapons.  There weren't any for Hobbs, but he was looking.  He found this staff and handed … [Read more...]
