Welcome to the World

Alright I have to brag a bit about my new little nephew! He arrived early Friday morning and he is just the sweetest he can be. His name is Easton Cooper Andrus. I am currently stuck in Idaho finishing up this semester. So, come next week I will be holding him like there is no tomorrow.

                                                   

My wonderful sister Kallie Cooper took these amazing photos!! Y’all should go and visit her site because she does the most adorable birth videos, baby videos, engagements etc…

So, since baby Easton came into our lives this has been pretty much the main topic of discussion. This week though I will be focusing on 4 finals which most of them are worth more than half of my grade so I am currently suffering through a migraine that just wont go away. blah…

I can’t to start a weekly blog post because I have been totally slacking and for that I am sorry. I have a lot planned for this summer and I should have more time for y’all!!! I hope you guys are having a wonderful week and I should probably start paying attention to this lecture instead of writing out this blog post.. Yeah you see my life?? lol.

Much love,

McKenzie

A Girl and her Planner

For years I have heard my friend talk about her planner and how much she loves hers. Every time I saw it my mind couldn’t wrap around it. 6 Months ago that all changed. I realized I wanted to spend less time staring at a screen and more time actually being productive and using my brain.

I caved and bought my first Erin Condren. I got the Academic Planner but that didn’t really work for me. I knew that new launch of the life planner was going to happen soon so I waited patiently and as soon as they were on sale I jumped at the chance and bought my first life planner.

To be honest it was love at first site. I was so in love with all the little details and the personal organization you can do with the planner that I haven’t stopped using it since. Usually when I buy a planner it lasts for a week or so because I just don’t have enough room for it. The Erin Condren is a whole different story.

If you are on the edge trying to decide what planner to get. Research it on YouTube find what works for you. To be honest you don’t need all the accessories at once. That was my first mistake when I bought the planner. I ended up spending about $100 dollars on ETSY on just stickers. When I probably could have waited to figure out how I wan to plan it. So, don’t do what I did. When you first purchase your planner make sure that you love it enough to start buy accessories. Obviously I loved mine and have invested in it so much.

Once you step foot in the planner community it’s hard to get out. I love my planner. It keeps me sane during finals week and helps me organize my time a little bit better. In the future I will be posting weekly spreads, tips and tricks on how to plan for college and also some give aways! So stay tuned for more planning content!

Finals are over!

The semester is finally over and I can start to breathe again. You know that feeling when you finish a hard project and you see the end result and all of a sudden the weight of the world is off your shoulders? Well, that is how I felt about this paper and the rest of my finals. I can finally breathe again and for the first time in weeks I have slept so well.

For my Summer. I am taking Summer Semester classes I am taking science foundations and math foundations online. I may end up killing myself because they are both a 7 week course. But I want to graduate early so that is the goal.

I have a lot of goals that I want to accomplish this summer. I have put together a Summer Bucket list to accomplish.
