Happy New Year!

Did you have a good time ringing in 2014?  I almost missed it.  I dozed off on the couch somewhere between 11-11:30 and then woke up just in time :)  My mom and dad came out and we fixed snacks and watched movies.  It was a great  night.  Then Mike fixed biscuits and gravy this morning.  After my parents left, we took down the last tree and got the house right back to normal.  I love putting the decorations up, but I love taking them down.  Feels like a fresh, clean start to the year for me!

Today I wanted to share with you my Filofax layout for this year.  I've been using the lined weekly inserts from Filofax and, at times, I find I don't have a enough room to write.  Especially my to do lists.  So I did some research and I came up with the day per page inserts from Franklin Covey.

On the left page is a timed column and a check list area and on the right is basically a piece of notepaper for lists.  I think it will work great for my Project Life lists, but the pages take up so much room I can only have three months at a time in here.  For those times when I have to make appointments for the future, I also have monthly calendars in here too.  I decorated all the days for this week with washi, which took a bit of time rather than the old pages.  We'll see how I like this and if I get confused with it :)  I love a new calendar for the new year.  What about you?

We're heading over to mom and dad's this afternoon for black eyed peas, they give you good luck you know, right JULIE??  :)  Then I'm headed back to work tomorrow.  It's been a wonderful break for me.  I wish you all the best in the new year and hope you'll stick around with me :)  See you soon and have a great Wednesday!


  1. happy new year becky!
    your planner looks great!

  2. Sounds like a perfect end to your holiday! I wish I was done with the decorations but I'll enjoy them for a few more days as I start taking down the rest of it. The basement tree and decorations are done so that feels good! I love your planner! YOu are going to be so organized! Happy New Year!

  3. Sounds like you had a wonderful New Years celebration.
    I hope you like your new pages. I was having the same dilemma with not enough room for my lists.
    Wayne and the girls bought me new planner pages but not sure if they are what I want to haven't added them yet.
    Enjoy your black eyed peas…I like the music not the food ;)

  4. Happy New Year! Nothing like a new calendar!

  5. I came down with the flu pretty much right after I ate those disgusting black eyed I am calling BS on them being lucky and that is all I will say on that!!!!!!! Happy New Year!

  6. Love the new calendar!

    I can't believe you have all your decorations down already! We still have our tree and about 70% of our decorations up...we've been so busy on the weekends that I haven't had time to do it!

    You know, I never knew about the black eyed peas until I moved here! But we didn't have any. I hope our new year is lucky anyway!
