Friday Favorites: Plan, Plan, and Plan Some More!

It's FRIDAY! That means it's time to link up with AndreaErika, and Narci!

If you saw yesterday's post, then you know that I have found a planning system that REALLY works for us this year, and that means that it's totally my favorite way to school plan! 

It's GYMBUCKS TIME! WooHoo! I love me some Gymboree! Besides the Halloween outfits that I bought, the rest is being put away to be used as Christmas gifts. I love planning ahead and grabbing things for Christmas. Here's what I grabbed on Wednesday...

And then I got home and wondered if I've completely lost my mind, having hired a babysitter just to get a soda to myself and some Gymboree on the first day of Gymbucks...someone tell me they do this too? 

Last week we pulled out our fall decorations and I seriously couldn't believe that I was the one who packed it away. I had organized it not only by fall holiday (general autumn, halloween, and  thanksgiving) but also included our SCHOOL books, plates and cups, printables, and picked up some extra post holiday sale items to pull out for the kids to play with when we decorated! I even put in seasonal nail polish, clothing, and DVDs. Thank you, Abby of last year! 

Our family photos are scheduled in two weeks, and this year, I planned ahead and grabbed my daughter and niece matching dresses from Shelby Jane and Co. and went ahead and grabbed some cute Christmas dresses to be WAY ahead of schedule, but come can you resist?!

Last but not least, it is just about my favorite time of year for our Friday family movie nights! Personal Creations sent me this to share with y'all:

"It's movie night - the family is all sitting in the living room, and now comes the fun part - deciding what to watch. Is it a comedy? Something fun? Sports based? The decision is never easy, and sometimes, it can actually take forever to decide!

That's where Personal Creations comes in. The personalized gifting company made this fun family movie flowchart that helps you make an educated decision - and have fun while doing it! Check out the flowchart below or on Personal Creations' blog. "

Have a great weekend!!!
