The Dogs Always Win

Every year my favorite Super Bowl commercials always seem to be the ones with animals in them, and this year was no different.  While I'll first say the 'puppy monkey baby' commercial was definitely creepy, my favorite this year was the Doritos Dogs.



Of course I loved the Heinz Wiener Stampede too, but that one makes me cry.  In a happy way though.  It makes me think of Frank our sweet wiener dog that we put down last spring.  He goes down in the history books as one of the best dogs ever, and we still think about him and talk about him daily...

The game itself was sort of ho-hum though, which was surprising.  I didn't really care who won or lost this one, but I picked Denver because they seemed like the under dogs at the time... However they came in and collected an easy win, while Carolina just didn't seem to be on their game yesterday.  And such is the way of football... you can be the best team in the league, and have an off day, and that's just part of the game.

Well, so!  Football season is officially over, so it's time to start thinking about Spring, and flowers and things!  :)

Hope you had a wonderful weekend friends!  What was your favorite part of Superbowl Sunday?  Did you try any great snacks or drinks, or find any fun things to do for the game?  Tell me about it!

5 Clip Board Printable Calendars for 2016


I like to think of January as the month of rest.  I always feel so busy through the summer months of wedding season, into the fall and through the holidays... so when January rolls around.  I'm ready to take it easy.  That doesn't mean that I'm not doing work behind the scenes though, it's just at my own pace, at my own pleasure.  If I want to take a bath and read a book in January, I let myself.  If I want to brainstorm new ideas, spring clean, go for a walk.  I do it.  I just let myself do what I feel like doing for a little while...  Eventually one thing leads to another, and I start getting organized.  Getting Ready.  I start thinking about what I want the new year to look like, and I start writing things down.



This year I'm all set with a fresh notebook to brainstorm ideas, some pretty colored InkJoy pens that were a gift from a friend, and some lovely printable calendars - I chose Short Stop Designs, though I loved each of these calendar sets because they had a touch of pretty, yet were clean and simple enough that you'd have room to write on each day.  And of course, they all printed portrait style, so they'd fit perfectly on a clip-board, yay!

What are some of your favorite ways to get organized in the new year?  I have a small desk and actually use a clipboard pretty regularly, so it will be handy to print a calendar monthly and keep it clipped to my board.  I'm planing on using them to jot down blog post ideas, and help schedule my soap favor orders.  Maybe if I start writing things down, they will be easier to get done.

Happy Friday Everyone!
