Confessional Friday by my planner (giveaway)

If you were my daily planner, you'd probably have a whole lot to say. So, in the spirit of giving, I offered my little planner the opportunity to take over the blog today for Confessional Friday. 

So here we go.

I confess // sometimes I am impressed by Jordan's ability to make sure her bills are paid on time, and her penchant for always writing down the confirmation number of the payment on my pages.

I confess // I think Jordan eats meals out way too often. If I could write on myself, I'd write something about meal planning, or jot down a link to an article about how much healthier food is when prepared fresh at home.

I confess // for all the eating out she does, Jordan does not go to the gym as much as I think she should ever, which is disappointing to me.. She shops a lot, and as previously mentioned, goes out to eat a lot, so I don't think it's the money that's stopping her... She also mentioned moving a time or two though, so maybe that's what she's waiting for.

I confess // I am a planner to longs to be used to my full potential. I want to be covered in writing about appointments, have little notes stashed here and there through my pages, and be a source of constant joy and inspiration to my owner. Jordan's nice and all, but I know she could use me for so much more.

I confess // I really do like the cover Jordan made for me. Her nephews sure are cute!

I confess // homegirl needs to relax more often. I have my fingers crossed, waiting for the day this girl takes a vacation some place warm, and gets tipsy on drinks with umbrellas in them. She would do real well to just chill the hell out.

I confess // that even though it may sound egotistical, I know I am destined for greatness. I am, after all, a beautiful, completely customized Erin Condren Life Planner. Ergo, my sole purpose in life is to simultaneously make Jordan happy, and keep her organized. And I'll be damned if I'm not the best thing for that. I like to think I have magic powers.


So I totally got my brand spanking new Erin Condren planner the other day. I may or may not have staked out the window of my apartment so I could make sure I knew when the FedEx guy got there. I also may or may not have run out the door when he did get there, screeching that the colorful package was mine. (As it turns out, both packages he had were mine, so the screeching was probably a little unnecessary. Oh well.)

And then I opened the box. And here is the awesomeness that was inside:
These two.. I mean, seriously. I just can't even, with all the cuteness. 
And again. I just want to look at the cover, all the time, because it's adorable-ness overload.
Who doesn't love a colorful, inspiring quote right in the front?!
Awesome full month view - space for writing notes and marking important things 

Quotes on top of every monthly page
Plenty of space each week to document all my happenings - plus a "goals and notes" section on the left! LOVE IT. 

Totally handy little pocket folder in the back, very aptly labeled..

This planner comes with its own little zip bag, to keep things organized and make sure everything stays put!! GENIUS.
                                        **disclosure: i was given this product in exchange for my honest review. all opinions are my own.**

I am so, so, so in love with this planner. Honestly, I have been rocking a Barnes and Noble book for years, and I had gotten pretty used to that system, but I don't think I will ever go back. The ability to customize the cover, all the fun bells and whistles, and the amazing add-ons* that you can get have me completely sold.

* Add-ons include, but are not limited to, customized stickers (both words and pictures), a pen holder, and canvas bands to hold the book closed. I did get some customized stickers, but that was all. You can even get matching note cards, gift tags (they sent me some as samples - I know what I'll be using on every Christmas gift this year!), and business cards, too! 

And now for the really fun part! The Erin Condren team has graciously offered to give away a $25 gift certificate code to one lucky winner! They throw some awesome sales at random times, too, so $25 can go a really long way! Good luck! :)
