I'm planning on it.

Ah, you guys.  I have been baking, cleaning, crafting, shopping, exercising, and birthday-partying-up a storm lately.  Seriously, no time to blog.

But I am feeling, oh so good, and happy, and enjoying the busyness AND the anticipation of hosting 30 of the people I love most in the world in my Home for Thanksgiving!!  What a blessing~!

Here's a picture of one of the views of the morning sky on my walk this morning.  Beautiful.  Subtle, but pretty.  The colors are brighter in real life!  

I am thankful that Steve gave up his normal workout time so that I could get into the habit of working out again.  I feel refreshed and more energized...and more capable of doing what is required of me every day.

And so much has been required lately, but I love it.  Anyway...

 My Mormon Mom Planner for 2014 came today.

At least I think that is what this thing is called.

It really is all it's cracked up to be, but it's kind of thick for better or for worse...better probably!

I only wish on the website they didn't bill it as "cute" because while it is indeed pretty, it is so much more than is a way to keep your mind focused on what matters most to Mothers who know.  And as a "planner" all my life, I am soooo excited to plan our many adventures in the coming year using this very personalized tool (including a family reunion just six months from now....oh, boy!)

Have a great weekend!


  1. I love these planners! I have the school year one, and it truly is wonderful. :)

  2. Post a link for it! I would LOVE this!!!

  4. I have a calendar. I like old school that I write in :) I am hosting 23 people and terrified!! I have never cooked a turkey. Oh help

  5. Thanks for the post. I need to check out the planner...with four kids, I'm noticing that my usual spontaneous nature isn't really working. :O

    Also Thanksgiving for 30! Crazy and fun! We had 25 people or so for thanksgiving last year. It was the best. I love cooking and preparing food. And I absolutely love the entire idea of Thanksgiving.

    finally - you live in PA, right? I grew up in PA - Chester county (just west of Philadelphia) heart aches for PA, especially this time of year. beautiful.

    1. I know that about you because I've been reading your love story!! And hey I am back in WY again...stake this time as of yesterday!
