The List Life

Saturday's are my busy days and last Saturday was no different. It's the day where I cram an entire weeks worth of projects into one day because the week has gone by without anything getting completed. Sunday is for rest and family time, so that only leaves one day. There was a long list this past weekend. So when KJB got up for his morning run, I started the coffee IV pot and sat down with my planner.

Ahh, my planner. My little, perfect place in the world. The place where stickers fit perfectly inside boxes. The place where function meets decoration. The place where colors coordinate and lists are made. Ahh, lists. Only slightly more satisfying than a sticker fitting perfectly inside the box is checking off a task on a to-do list. Yes, I'm one of those people who write things down so they can check them off. It's satisfaction in it's purest form.

Today I wanted to share a free printable of these adorable heart checklists. They are sized to fit the box size of an Erin Condren, but you can use these babies anywhere. I love to print them off on sticker paper to make them super simple to put down, but you could also use a glue stick, a tape runner, or a Xyron sticker maker




You could put them in your planner or on a post-it note. 

Use them to make a grocery list, a honey-do list, or a packing list.

The little flag ends add to the fun factor.

Print as many as you would like to get multiples of your favorite color. I also added a ton of silver, gold, and rose gold glitter flags for all you glitter lovers. Download the PDF's here. Share your lists on Instagram and tag them #thelistlife so I can see how you use your flags to get things done!

Friday 4

The top four things I love about this past week...

4. My new iPhone 7 is currently on a FedEx truck to be delivered to my house sometime today. I've been extremely patient with my current phone; the WiFi card started failing several months ago, making it difficult for me to do fun things like scroll through Instagram while waiting at the doctors office or do necessary things like back up to iCloud. I'm SO excited to get all set up on a new phone that will work.

3. If you know me at all, you know my out-pouring of love for Halloween. When I say I've been fretting about my costume for this year, believe that I've been fretting. All of my costumes are DIY, so I have to start early if I want something great, which I do! So for some reason I've experienced complete writers-block when it came to deciding on a costume for this year. BUT, this week an idea sparked and I am so in love with the idea. It's the perfect combination of easy-to-find pieces, creative projects, and genius results - at least, that's the way I envision it.

2. The weather has been 100% this week. Sunny, breezy, and the most comfortable temperature of upper 70's. The humidity the past month has been less than wonderful, so I've thoroughly enjoyed walking out side for longer than 30 seconds without getting soggy with sweat. Sorry for the over sharing of info, but that's what you get here.

1. The weekend plans are looking low-key which translates into relaxing and enjoyable. A long overdue date night with KJB is on the schedule, a bubble bath, and just maybe, if I feel like it, some tidying up around the house. Because when you don't have to do something, it's much more tolerable to do it.

Cheers to a wonderful weekend, hope your week was as pleasant as mine. xo
