Organizing like it's 20-16!

That doesn't exactly have the same ring to it as, "Party Like It's 1999," does it?

Anyway, Happy Monday...?  Wait.  That doesn't sound right.  Happy and Monday should never be in the same sentence, right?  To be perfectly honest, as much as I've enjoyed every minute of these last couple of weeks, I must say that I'm craving our lost routine.  We've been going to bed late, waking up late and naps are non-existent and while it's been awesome-sauce, I can tell we're all thrown off a bit...this whole two week routine...it's just not us.  I think we're ready to get back into the thick of things, clean ourselves up and get some stuff accomplished!  It is after all, a new year!

Now, I don't want to overwhelm myself with unattainable goals right off the bat, so to get the week/month/year started, here are just a few ways in which I plan to get this little family of mine back on track!

Emily Ley is putting on #simplicitychallenge2016 over on her IG account.  I thought this could be a fun way of taking charge of the mess! 

Care to join?


I'm all about snail mail.  Seriously, I love it.  Hopefully other people love it, too, because as much as I like receiving mail, I enjoy sending it.

I purchased this pretty little greeting card organizer from Amazon.

We're immediately hit with two January birthdays in the New Year - a January 3rd birthday (My Mom) and a January 5th birthday (My Mother-In-Law).  The birthdays just keep coming after that.  I thought it'd be fun and efficient to have a place for everyone's birthday dates, as well as a place for those perfect cards that you just have to purchase for that someone special.


Organizing Henry's school papers.  

This.has.to.happen.  

It's getting cray cray over here with all these papers!  I realize that we're half-way through the school year (I also recall mentioning preparing for this last September - never happened), but I must create a way to organize his adorable papers before the end of the year...no...wait...by the end of this week! 

 Abby, from Just A Girl and Her Blog, has a great system that I plan to implement ASAP.

That's it!  See?  Not too crazy?  I think it's realistic and doable!

I feel like these little things will add up.  What do you think?

How are you organzing/putting your life back together this week?  I'd love to hear it!

Thanks for stopping by, friendship!  ;)
