Today I want to start explaining my new wall collage that I am totally in love with and still working on
anyone want to give me a mason jar? The picture collage was made during our newborn photo shoot so that one is a given. PS if you are in California and looking for an incredible photographer send me an email and I will hook you up with the most incredible (and sweetest) photographer I know. First, I want to talk about the weekly family planner.
I love the girls in my small group, it's true. And they love me. So when they made fun of my decorating they didn't tease me without getting me
addicted to interested in pinterest for a ton of decorating ideas. As I was searching I saw this dry erase wall frame. I loved the idea and had to make one of my own! It was really super simple and super cheap.
My friend Rebecca gave me a wall frame she had in college and had no use for any more now that she is a married woman. I totally could've gotten it at walmart for $12 though. When my mother-in-law was here we went out and found some scrapbook paper that I loved. I feel in love with the blueish one first and found the others to match. I got them all for less than $1.
I simply cut them out into 4x6 picture sizes. I used a black marker to write the days of the week on them and then put them in the frames. Ok, to be honest, I framed them first and then had to unframe them all, write the days of the week on them, and then reframe them. It turned out pretty great though.
I bought some dry-erase markers for $5 so the whole project cost $6! I wrote our schedule out right on the glass. In real life, I use all different color markers but hey didn't photograph well, so I re-wrote our schedule in black so y'all can see it. I use the planner to keep track of 5ohHubby's court and training schedule (I never can keep track of court!), our daily plans, and what we are having for dinner each day. Ok, maybe not dinner every day this week because there will be some delicious leftovers.
5ohHubby is the kind of person who gets recharged when he is around people. I am the kind of person who gets recharged when I am at home. This is one of the reasons being a cop's wife does not bother me: when he is working there are at least 3 days in a row that I can
stay in my sweats just relax at home. I also give 5ohHubby 3 days a week where we can have plans with other people. Usually this involves having dinner with a couple one night, small group another night, and separate guy time/ girl time one night. That accounts for 6 days of the week. We both then make sure that we have just one day a week where we do absolutely nothing. To remind him, I just save a day on the wall planner. Once all our plans for the week are set, the dry erase marker easily wipes off so we can plan what is really important.
How do you keep track of your family's busy schedule?
