weekend manifesto

January 15, 2011

3 days of freedom
ahhh! i’m getting all excited just thinking about it. here’s what i plan on doing with my time:

i also plan on calling and catching up with family + some friends. ooh, and there are also some movies out right now that i’m interested in (black swan and morning glory in particular) so one of these may find a way in somehow.

if i get really motivated, i also might spend a little time working on organizing our budget (umm, or creating one, as currently no such thing exists — to the delight of both whole foods and anthropologie). finally, i would like to discover one new music artist (why not?). as you can see, i’m pretty open!

here’s what i do not plan on doing with my time
hang out in front of this computer. i will check email twice daily (MAX!) and spend a maximum of 30 minutes of time online daily (in addition to writing my post, of course).

feel sorry for myself in any way. [hopefully it’s out of my system!]

this post is ubershort because the my listmaking soulmate vickie is here (along with her wonderful boyfriend travis, who did not blink an eye when we spent about 15 minutes comparing each other’s planners) and we have some serious stationery shopping to do!

happy saturday! tell me i’m not the only one who relishes making a list for how i will spend time off! what kind of adventures will you be seeking this weekend?

    I love that you made a list of things to do this weekend. I need to borrow some of your organizational skills.

    I recommend Black Swan. 127 Hours was really good too.

    happy weekend! please indulge the fact I too love stationery and organization and am dying to know the following: is the hot pink tape some of the japanese colored tape i keep hearing about AND do you tape extra lists in your planner and leave them there or just remove them once the list is checked off. I once managed to double the thickness of a planner with all my extra taped-in notes and lists and am trying to avoid that again.

    And yes, I am obsessed with planners too. I was a Planner Pad gal for years, and now, thanks to you have moved to the Space 24 planner for 2011.

    I started reading your blog cca 1 week ago. And now I am trying to catch up, but I don´t have that much time. I love it. Interesting to see I am not the only person ˝obsessed˝ with planners:)). Tell Vickie I would love to read some new posts again. MD from Europe.

    If you're looking for new music, check out the Black Keys if you haven't already. I discovered them this week and <3 🙂 Have a great weekend!

    Have a fun weekend! So, I'm more or less obsessed with Dewey Howard stationery – it's absolutely beautiful.
    Enjoy your adventures!

    For your new musical artist check out Foster the People. They aren't on iTunes, but they are on Grooveshark. I love their song "Helena Beat"…

    Will you post all the recs so us readers can find some new music too?!

    I LOVE that you utilize graph paper for your lists…really, is there anything better and more organized than graph paper?

    I am off to organize my life…way too many things fall by the wayside during the busy work week.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    I went sledding for the first time EVER this morning! We went to a really popular place that I was afraid would be crowded, but it wasn't because it was super cold. It was really fun- the hill was huge- but after three times up and down in the cold and wind we were ready to be done. Have a fun weekend.

    I really love lists like this. I make them all the time. There's something about budgeting that is both desirable and undesirable at the same time. If you budget, then you may need to cut back on anthropologie! Ah.

    lee: ah! i cannot bring myself to watch 127 hours for some reason. it just sounds so STRESSFUL.

    valere: love that you love the space 24!! and YES that is the japanese tape that you see in fancy stationery shops + such. a friend gave it to me, but i've seen it on some stationery websites (and ebay!). i have pink, turquoise, and striped 🙂 and i do remove the lists, for that reason. they're just there for when they're used!

    andrea: thank you!! and i told vickie to get her butt in gear 🙂

    those who left music recs: i will check out all of those groups today!


    lisa: well, perhaps there will be a limit but i definitely plan on a keeping an anthro-dedicated fund 🙂

    chelsea: ahh love sledding! haven't done it since i was a kid but i would in a heartbeat. . . if we ever got significant snow here.
