Getting Organized!

Hey Friends! So before I go on further, this is an un-educational organize post, but still a good read, I promise! ;)

So yesterday, I made my little trip to the "girly doctor." I hate going and am so glad it is once a year that we have to go...but my agenda this time, besides "the exam" was to talk about baby planning. :) My husband and I would like to start trying in the fall and I want to get prepared. Well, I did all the routine tests, but when they took my blood pressure, it was very high. (140/100 when normal is 120/80). Note, I am only 26 and normal weight. (138 and 5'4") I was a little concerned, as was the doctor. My mom has hypertension, and it runs in my family, but he said I was too young for this to be showing up. :( So I think some of it is contributed to stress...we've gone through a lot of changes this month with the new house, a puppy and all of my husband's family is coming to stay for the holiday weekend. So long story short, he recommended I try some stress calming activities and enjoy the summer as much as I can. 

With that being said, I started to look into life planners. I know we all have teacher planners and I love mine, but I don't have one for my home and day to day activities. My husband and I are working on budgeting our finances together and I think this will really help to see the big picture each month. 

I didn't want to buy one yet (even though there are lots of neat ones out there) but I did find an amazing link to a life planner free printables! 


She has pages for everything under the sun and I can't wait to go out today and grab a binder to put it all together in. :) Hopefully this will help on cutting down some of that stress life tends to hand you! That's all for now..have a great day!
