The Balancing Act

TGIF girlfriends!! So here we are ladies, rounding out the first month of the new year! So how did you do? Are you still knocking out those 2017 goals and resolutions? – losing weight, healthy lifestyle, working out, water challenge, journal challenge, prayer challenge, etc… I was trying to name the more “popular” goals/resolutions that we tend to make each year LOL. Well let me just tell you (about me) – I haven’t given up and don’t plan to give up either on some of them BUT I’m finding, trying to organize my life along with incorporating my new goals has become quite the balancing act! I’ve succeeded in a few areas and did a good week’s worth of effort in the others. I’m still motivated and inspired to complete all of my goals, its just taking me a lil bit to get organized and to prioritize properly. (Y’all know how my life is setup… and just in case you forgot LOL – wife, mom of 4, EPing, 8a-5p, blogger, ministry worker, wedding planner… IJS) So this is my inspiring moment, for all my girlfriends that are ready to throw in the towel or have already thrown it away, to get back into the game/race and let’s complete this journey together! Its been said that it only takes 21 days to create/form a habit, so lets kick it in to ACTION! Put your phones, tablets/iPads, and planners to use and physically schedule time to do each goal you wish plan to pursue. This does include daily prayer time to take your goals to the Lord and pour out your desires unto Him. What’s the quotes?

If you Fail to plan, you Plan to fail – Benjamin Franklin

A Goal withOUT a Plan is just a wish – Antoine de Saint-Exupery

and the Word says:

Commit your works to the Lord [submit and trust them to Him], and your plans will succeed [if you respond to His will and guidance]. ~ Proverbs 16:3 (AMP)

We can do this ladies! The year has just begun. Don’t dwell on the past 27 days and start conquering your masterplan with the 338 days remaining!! Don’t let 2017 be your year of shoulda, coulda, woulda, but let this be your complete and perfect year!

Have a blessed weekend ladies!

Joy for Your Day,

#FMF: Excitement!

Excitement – a feeling of great enthusiasm and eagerness

The Planner’s Final Countdown

Happy Friday chicas! Today’s post is brought to you by “the planner” me!! Time is truly flying and if you don’t believe me…. Let me just share a few things with you on today.

Here’s the Final Countdown to the next Holidays through the end of the year as of this morning around 8:50ish (that my family celebrates). And yes Black Friday is a holiday/family tradition for us… it’s a family shopping event for our whole family (stop judging!).


So with that being said I’ve got to get into PLANNING MODE… I’m only 20 days out from my dad’s birthday, 21 days from local Christmas Parade, 26 days from Thanksgiving, 27 days from Black Friday, 34 days from MY BIRTHDAY, 46 days from having a 4 year old (tear), and 55 days from JESUS’ birthday-woohoo. (Wipes sweat from forehead) anybody else tired with me! That’s a lot of planning and decorating to get organized! And just so you know… I’m soooo friggin’ excited about it! (I’m a sucker for this time of the year!)

Now ladies, have you started planning out your Holidays? Shopping Lists?? Family Traditions??? Now’s the time to get started! Good news is, I plan to share some of my tips and lists with you in hopes to #1- get you motivated, #2- get you organized, and #3- get you setup for well-planned (minimal-to-no stress) Holiday events! Are you getting excited? (eyes-closed… please say YES lol) Now, I don’t want to make this solely about “me” and what I have to offer… I’m looking for YOU to share with me and all of us GIRLFRIENDS- your traditions, best tips, fun themes, and even Holiday challenges too! SO DON’T BE SHY and “click that comment link” to tell us all about it!

I look forward to making Holiday memories with my family and my girlfriends!

Have a wonderful weekend and remember to turn your clocks back 1 hour before going to bed on tomorrow!
