Five Question Friday - 6/18/10

1. What is your favorite thing about summertime?
My favorite summertime thing is... that the pools are open, BBQ, 4th of July, Western Days (a really fun craft fair here in Elgin, TX), and time spent with family!

2. What is your ideal retirement location (if money didn't matter)?
Right here in central Texas.  Would love to have 50 acres on lake front or with it's own little lake.  Texans are crazy about their waterfront.  Of course, retirement would include international travel to fun locals!

3. Do you live in the same town you grew up in?
Nope.  Was a navy brat, but grew up mostly outside of Seattle, WA.  Definitly not anywhere close to Texas, LOL!

4. What nervous habit did you have as a child that you kicked to the curb before becoming an adult?
Lack of mouth control.  Seriously, I am a serious blutter.  It is a little better as an adult, but I still work at it everyday.  The worst part is when I get nervous and say stuff that I don't mean and that is hurtful to others.

5. What is the most embarrassing thing that happened to you while on the job?
Crying on the job.  My second job here in Texas was not fun.  The manager was horrible (not an exageration) and I never felt like I could do anything right.  Not a fun situation for a perfectionist.
Those are my answers to this Friday's questions.  Wonder if this should become an every Friday "thang"? 

Everyone have a fabulous weekend, and stay safe!


  1. Im still awaiting mouth control! I just cant help but comment sometimes

  2. Aww, mouth control. It is a hard task, I always seem to somehow put my foot in my mouth. lol.

    Stopped in from 5QF, have a great weekend!

  3. Following you back!
    Where outside Seattle did you grow up? We're in Bellevue now...not my favorite, but I grew up out in the Hobart/Maple Valley area. Much more my style with the space! And I'm a blurter too...I'm horrible, I talk nonstop when I'm nervous, uncomfortable, pretty much all the time :)

    Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

Christmas is coming...

Working through some Christmas items to list on, my Etsy store. I will be taking custom orders through Dec. 1st.  Also, getting back into the swing of things by participating in two craft fairs this holiday season. 

Planner Tabs and Dashboard

Post-it's tabs are super easy to add and move if you need to change where there are placed. I find that after placing them, I may find it easier to see them further over or on the other side of the page. 

Seeing so many different ways to use tabs on the top, sides, and bottoms of their planner has given me ideas. And when you find one way doesn't work great, switch the location until you do find the perfect location for the way you use them. 

After this layout, I moved stuff around....

Now the tabs for project lists, H's B-day, next Christmas are on the bottom of the pages. Nothing blocks the,  since the above layout I also switched the monthly layouts to behind the DISFish weekly pages I use.  The teal/blue month tabs are on the first page of the DISFish which includes that month's information.  The monthly tabs on the side are for the two-page monthly sprees by Daytimer that came with this binder. Helps to see the month laid out in that way when on the phone making appo…

Planner Sections

Order in my Palmer (right now) goes like this...Dashboard, wrapped in two verses printed on card stock, Food tracker, 2016 DIYFish yearly calendar for melds tracking,  Weekly (DIYFish Weekly Project) Monthly two-page layouts, Financial Freedom pages, Fitness pages, Project pages (special event planning pages), Church Team pages. 

I have a steno pad in the back pocket for the ongoing, never ending to-do list and what purchases are needed for those tasks. 
A second stern pad is tucked into the front pocket for me brain dump as I think of things during the day.
