📅Planning / Scheduling📆

Which keychain should I hook to this Sanrio Keroppi planner zipper? * Dallas Cowboys * Dallas Mavericks * Luke Bryan * Office Depot *Star* Teacher 🎒🔑🏈🏀🌠

Ever since I was in elementary, I enjoyed organizing my planners📒 & came across several agendas from grade school, junior high & h.s. while spring🍀 cleaning & decluttering📦 ~ including 1☝🏽️ worth saving!

Glamming up with pens: animal prints from when I traveled for my doc research (I was giving them away to participants in my survey ~ male athletes didn’t want to keep them)

I’ve already set my 🍁semester🍂 wardrobe👗 (by listing dates & outfits in my iPhone📱 📓notes) ~ yet there’s something about penning✒️ important 🎓events.

My 1st academic month filled up quick… Yikes! Please disregard my birthday age ~ my brain must be fried from my dissertation focus that I actually entered 1yr older than my real age. #smh 📅💡🍳💫🎉

Since I don’t have much time to hand write📝 everything (or fund$💰 to $pend💸 oodles on a planner), I took the liberty🇺🇸 of typing📲 this term’s items (complete with my endearing 😍emojis) to print📇 from my phone📳 + personalizing each month with 📷photos ~ then I’ll color-coordinate with my gel pens to add anything else!

Thanks to our office stores ~ where I used to go when they held the annual Teacher Appreciation Breakfast ~ we have discount$ & reminders! I’ll be sporting my agenda with my *Independence Day* tote that’s appropriate for all seasons ~ especially when school‘s in sesh!

To-Do Tip: Treat your schedule like a grocery 📋list✅ on the day/week/month (depending on how far in advance you prefer to plan) of your booked📚 priorities & events ~ DON’T add➕ anything else that’ll allot more time unless

  • It has to do with reaching your 🌈goal🏆 &/or
  • Involves someone you 💝care💖 about

Now I’m also ready with next year’s creative 📆calendar!

Despite my best efforts to hit the sack early during my sabbatical, I spent the week before my bday/vacay staying up ’til 4am working on my dissertation then awoke at 4am on my flight days.

Time for a new routine … Evie to the rescue with this tip from one of our fave artists:

Beauty Tuesday: Black & Metallic

In Beauty Tuesday, Community, Higher Ed, Pro-DiSPO, Public Interest, Weekly Wonders, What's Hot, Workin' Woman, Yours Truly on 06/09/2015 at 23:31

This season, I sport more bright colors, especially pastels. However, during this week’s theme, I paired these pieces together that really complement each other:

Black & Metallic

Initially, the focal point was this Kardashian Kollection pencil skirt, which I paired with this black Express knit ruffled top underneath gun metal/braided-belted blazer + accessorized with this Coach Poppy Metallic Signature Sateen Glam tote & Fit Flops Rockstar Walk Star leg-toners with Swarovski crystal embellishments. {Gotta love my Dallas Cowboys desk chair, where I do my home office work}

Gotta love the black and metallic! Muted tones can be all the rage!

Mama Eufemia

Throwback: Last time I visited Mama Eufemia before our final days together in her death bed

Four years ago today, my Mama Eufemia passed away, but she’s always with me to this very day. During our final hour together, I shoul’ve been comforting her, but she was the one who still silently and lovingly consoled me. #YouAreMySunshine ☼ #AlwaysAndForever #SmilingAndShiningWithLOVEfromHeavenAbove † ♥ ✌

Our Lady of Guadalupe from mi Suegra when she went to México for her mother’s anniversary Mass

¡Feliz Cumplé a mi Suegra Lupe hoy!

I dedicate today’s Rosary to my paternal grandmother on her fourth anniversary (today) with the Divine Mercy ~ which I also pray with the Sorrowful Mysteries (Tuesdays and Fridays):
