I used to do this post and got away from it for whatever reason. This makes me sad because we should always find ways to celebrate the little things in life. Also, what better day on which to do this than Fridays? So, here are the things that make this a Fabulous Friday for me this week.
- Long weekends – I purposely took off today for a much-needed mental health day and as a way to extend the long weekend before dance starts up again next week. There is nothing better than more than two days of no work on the immediate horizon.
- Planner decorating – I have always used a planner and used to have no problems. Now? I must decorate each page. Granted, I want to use my planner even more now because of how pretty it is. Thankfully, the type of planner I have means I can still keep the functionality while adding embellishments that are more me.
- Cooking – I cooked meals for the family every day this week. It was so wonderful. It made me feel happier and more at peace than I have in a long time.
What makes this a Fabulous Friday for you?
Love this post. I used to do a Friday Five, it was about five good things that were happening in my life. I may join you in your Fabulous Friday if you’ll allow me to borrow your icon? I am more than the books I read…right? I’m thinking of adding a post about my planner addiction, and also about the Listers Gotta List challenge I’ve joined. We shall see.
Absolutely! I think we all need to get better about counting our blessings.
I love this! I may have to copy it!
I used to love keeping a planner, but now I have everything on my computer calendar instead. I never write anything down anymore. But I love your planners – they are so fun looking! Where do you get them, I may need to try it. 😉
Yay for taking an extra day off! I’m so looking forward to this long weekend. Today’s our last day of summer hours at work, so I’m outta here by 12:30.
I hope you have a wonderful long weekend!
Thanks, Brandie! I used to do this maybe two to three years ago. It was a little something I could bring back easily.
I actually only have one planner, the Day Designer and not the kind you can purchase from Target. I just bought way too many stickers and washi tape and decorate for the week on the weekends. It is a fun way to add some originality and color to my planner. I do use a computer calendar but that is more for notifications while I am out and about. The written planner is my to-do list and helps me plan the day.
Have a great weekend!
