Link Up HERE!

1.  I had a GREAT weekend although I took NO pictures!  One of my besties, Jaclyn came to town for our friend from college's wedding shower.  The shower was adorable Megan...when we FINALLY made it there after being lost for an hour! haha!

Here is Jaclyn and I from college.  This picture made me SERIOUSLY miss seeing her everyday.  I love you Jaclyn!  Probably not the best picture of us since you can't even see our faces but we have so many pictures of us where we are just cracking up...who knows about what :)

2.  I made a family binder and I love it!  Some of the pages I made, some are from Pinterest, and some I googled to find.  I'm not 100% done with it but it's close enough.  Here are a few glimpses into our family binder.

Here is the break down of the entire binder. 

Pencil pouch and cover sheet
Contact info:  Doctor's numbers, work numbers and addresses, business cards
Home:  Monthly DIY to do list, any home maintenance
Daily:  Home cleaning schedule, to do lists, birthday calender, summer-spring-holiday photo check lists

Food:  Menu and shopping lists, to go menus, numbers to order pizza
Away from home:  All info for babysitters, dog sitter notes
Jonathan:  Work - football - travel schedules

Date nights:  A folder to hold our 12 planned date nights (More on that later!)

3.  Georgia LOVES bath time!

4.  What do I do when Georgia starts crying? (it was nap time!)  Take a picture of course!  Haha!  I love this face...I think it's so cute and I crack up every time she starts crying and turns that little lip down!

5.  I made this for our living room (I think I'm going to print it for our collage wall that I've yet to make!)

1. I just so happened to be checking out Megan's blog last week (don't know how I came across it, but it wasn't through you) and saw your picture on there and thought, "woah! thats Emily!" crazy small world.

2. LOVE that binder! I am trying to do a similar "folder" do you have some of the pages under a pin board on Pinterest? Do you know where you got a lot of your templates? I've been looking but always end up at etsy where they make you buy them.

3. Georgia's cry face is too cute for words!

4. WOW! very cool! love that idea! Did you take all the pictures yourself? Will you keep them all together and put them all in one big frame, or use different frames for each date?

I'm going to shadow all of Cassandra's questions above... but I would love to know the pin links for some of those organizers. I love the menu/grocery planner. I've found some on pinterest but I like the one you found even better! Also, I would LOVE a tutorial for how you made that numbers picture. What an amazing idea! Thanks for the inspiration as always.

So glad you had such a great weekend! I really need to get organized and make a family binder too. I bought a binder last week for recipes but I haven't done that little project either. :) And so glad you had so much fun with Jaclyn! We all need girl time! It's good for the soul. :)

I love the date collage! What a great idea! Georgia is a couple of days older than my baby girl, Mallory. You are so creative - hopefully I can start being more creative too!
