10 Degrees and an Announcement (not a baby)

Tuesday, January 07, 2014

It was 10 degrees this morning when I was getting dressed. That's TEN. We live in Memphis. This doesn't really happen here. Like ever. Since it doesn't really happen here, ever, we forgot to leave our faucets dripping last night. No shower for me this morning, oops! With some rogue dry shampoo and hairspray, I tried to salvage yesterday's hair, but this is what we ended up with (uh, until lunch when it became a "top knot").

You like my chins, er, face?

I'm wearing two pairs of socks and basically a blanket slash this lovely scarf from H&M that my sis-in-law Amanda scored for me on sale. It is WARM. And also cute, which is a plus. Uh, props to the people in the Midwest and Northeast, just basically everywhere but SoCal where my brother lives, who are dealing with the polar vortex. Sheesh! and good luck.

IN OTHER NEWS (and this is the "announcement" part):

Martha and I (along with Laura!) designed a planner! Eeeeee!

We're pretty giddy!

(Isn't Laura's cover beautiful? So perfect.)

This idea came to me as I was writing this post last week; we were able to join forces and get it put together pretty quickly. It is nothing very fancy, but our hope is that it will be very functional. It's half of a letter sheet size, so 5.5" wide by 8.5" tall. Spiral bound. The front and back covers are hard laminated (or will be, this is a pic of the proof).

Just layouts of weeks, and then months in between. A good number of notes pages in the back. Nothing complicated. Very simple.
I had this idea because I couldn't find a planner I absolutely loved, and neither could Martha. When we started working on the project and were talking with our friends about it, most of them said they couldn't either, and they'd be interested in having one if we put them together. We got a great price from our printer and so we decided to sell them! They're going to be $18 (no shipping cost if you live in Memphis; not sure exact shipping cost yet for out-of-towners, but I will update as we know).

I will do a post here with some more photos and a PayPal link once they're officially for sale. If you're interested, please let me know, so I can gauge how many we need to get!
