On the Bandwagon

I am the first to admit that I totally jumped on an already happening bandwagon when I decided to start blogging.  My blog's first anniversary is approaching this September, so this blog is still very much a baby in the grand scheme of things.

There are plenty of other times that I jump on the bandwagon.  I try to be original, but I'm also a sucker for word-of-mouth product recommendations and good ideas.  So this post is chock-full of things that you might have already seen on other blogs.  The main reason i'm passing it along here is that I would like to think I have maybe at least two readers who haven't heard about these things elsewhere.  If nothing else, I can trust that my bff will be entertained by this post. (Hi, Court!!)

Okay so first up on this list of things is my Erin Condren planner.  You may have seen these all over twitter or other blogs so I'm not going to go on too much about it.  There's a link up over at The Tichenor Family Blog where a lot of other bloggers have talked about their favorite features of the planner.  I'm really liking mine too.  I have a few things I don't love about it but all in all, its a great product and the online deal I got made it a great product at an even greater price!
Please forgive the phone pictures!
 Here's mine.  The blue post-it is covering my last name.  All the planner covers are personalized which is a lovely detail.  My pattern of choice is the Trelis pattern in "multi" color.  I have to say the planner was much thicker in person than I was expecting, but I'm still enjoying using it.  I'm sure I will enjoy it even more as I learn it, if you know what I mean.
Here are some of the complimentary goodies that were included with my planner.  Little gift labels- some even with my name on it.  Fun, right?
Like the good little SEC fan that I am, the first thing in my planner was the 2011 LSU Football schedule.  Kick off is in twelve days!!

The second thing I have to discuss is a great deal on "call-me cards."  The deal is through minted and is being talked about on many blogs as a "mommy card."  I am not a mom but I still ordered some of these cards and took advantage of the deal!  The deal gets you 25 business cards (a $30 value) for free! I actually ordered 75 cards and my total came to about $23 including shipping. A great deal, in my opinion- especially for the nice design of these cards.
According to Nina and Erin at Blue Eyed Bride have both discussed this deal and you can find all the details on their sites.  I've been meaning to get some "call-me cards" for a while so I'm happy to finally cross that off my list!  It will be nice to have these to hand out to people whether we meet at networking events or through classes. Who knows, perhaps I will be able to hand one out to a potential suitor.  (I WISH!) 
There are some incredibly chic designs to choose from! I am very anxiously awaiting mine in the mail.

Last, but not least, I wanted to link to my pinterest account.  Please do follow me on pinterest- I would love to follow you back! I think you may have to sign in to pinterest before this link will route you to the correct place.

Thats all for now, folks.  Wishing everyone a bright and productive Monday!

  1. That's the same pattern that I had! I just got my new one in the mail the other day and I went with an initial pattern this time. And it's WAY thicker than my old one, which I attribute to the addition of tabs and also the fact that my old one was ordered in march so it had 9 months in it, and this one has like 15! I'm considering pulling out the pages of the month when each month is over and keeping them separate so I don't have to carry them everywhere.


I would love for you to leave me a comment! Its great to know people out there actually read (and hopefully enjoy) this blog! Please leave me an email address if you can. I love to respond to readers who leave comments when possible.
