Week 25 - Austin, TX

Instagram: @alondrakayy

Life has been crazy busy and I love it. This past weekend we got the heck outta Dallas and went for a mini road trip. What should of taken 4-5 hours to get to instead took almost 8! We kept stopping to sight see and explore. I love my family. I love their love for life. Our brother in law came with so that was a huge change. A great change.

Kate Spade In Yellow

Though I can hardly contain my excitement, I won't bombard you with pictures of this thing. Mainly because I recently did a video of my set up here. What I will say is that I am so happy to have this lovely agenda. I have been searching for it for what feels like forever! I thought to myself, 'what do I have to trade for this?'. It had to be a miracle to find itself and that's when it hit me, my Kate Spade Zipped Agenda in coral. So I made a post and God got the message to the person who had this ray of sunshine. I say God because he does know our deepest desires, even if it's something as silly as an agenda. The trade happened and now it's here! 

Even as I held it in my hands I could not believe it. My first thought was 'I'm NEVER letting this go'. I can finally say that I am pretty content with my small collection as of right now.

Girl's Night

You know those moments where you just need a break? Moments where you would do anything for ten seconds of peace and quiet. I've come to know that I am not alone. My husband has these same thoughts some days. He never says anything, but I can tell. After asking him the same question for the 100th time and Kayleigh crying in the background because she wants more juice, I see the little man inside of him dying for just a couple hours alone with his PlayStation 4. Or whatever men do when they are alone. Yesterday, I decided to give him the day. Well, not the whole day since he still had to work but at least the last few hours of the day before sleep time.

I have to say, Kayleigh and I were not complaining. We needed some girl time ourselves. We first went to the church to help making scrapbooks for a foster care agency. I wouldn't call it helping since I love anything that has to do with crafts and paper, but we did have to sit through traffic soooooo..

Afterwards, we went to our (my) favorite place: Chick-Fil-A. It took everything in me not to get anything. I am currently trying to lose a few pounds so anything fried (or good) is on the no-no list.

It was a great night indeed. I'm glad to have been able to have those special moments with my little one.

My Set Up In Photos - MTN

No rings. That's the only reason this little piece of leather has been working wonderfully for me. There is freedom in my writing and it's much appreciated. Many of you are not video junkies like 99% of the stationery junkies out there so you might not have been jumping up and down when a new MTN set up video was posted.. and so I thought this would be a great opportunity for another post. After all, it was getting pretty quiet around here.

I won't write much. If you are like me, I'd rather see than read.

The Front: aren't the scratches lovely??

Pockets + Pictures.

Pocket + Kraft Folder.

Kraft Folder + Insert (Notes)

For looks.


Emergency Information: Although I don't know how many people would think to look in here in case of any emergency.

Diary Section: Which you have seen here.

Kraft Folder: Paper for Notes + Stickers.

And that's all folks!

This lovely agenda is no longer mine. One half of my readers are hating me right now for letting go of such a 'rare' planner, the other half are angry at me for not selling it to them. People have pleaded and asked me to keep them in mind if I ever decided to let it go, but sadly none had what I have been searching for. A Kate Spade agenda. Just, in another style and color. You will see what I mean soon. Until then, lets track it together shall we?

A little MIA

Life has been busy these last couple of weeks and sometimes I just want to get home after a long day and cuddle with my husband. I have had a chance to upload a Midori Travelers Notebook update as well as a Kate Spade Agenda video. I will make a review of these on my blog I promise! Just wanted to let you know that I am still here. This is still my happy place.

Till next time,

Midori - Week 24

I thought after a few days I would be itching to move back into my Filofax but the opposite is happening. This lovely journal/planner is working out perfectly for me. Not having to deal with rings getting in the way has been such a relief. Before, I didn't realize just how much they bothered me until they weren't a bother.. if that makes any sense.

This week was busy and full. Lots of gym time which is great but the plan is to step it up this next week. Lots of Barns & Noble. Lots of eating out which really hurt our pockets this weekend but we survived! And to end the week on a good note we all three took a sweet nap Sunday afternoon. It was a lovely 7 days indeed.
