Show Notes: Ep #43 with Elise Cripe of Get to Work Book
I have been following Elise and her beautifully designed product, the Get to Work Book, for quite some time. In fact, I did a review of this planner in 2018!
Having Elise on the show was such a pleasure. First, it was interesting to hear about the uncanny parallels in our planning styles. Second, she was just so calm, nice, and kind.
She graciously sent me a copy of her academic year planner – this incredibly functional and professional planner runs from July 2021 – June 2022. While I am tempted to dive in myself and literally wish I could use 10 planners well, alas . . . this is not reality. So Elise was okay with me providing this book as a giveaway for you all!
To enter, just leave a comment on today’s post. I will ship wherever (though concerningly I shipped something to a planner friend in South Africa months ago and I don’t think it ever made it).
I will do a random number drawing on Wednesday (May 24) and announce the winner!
SHOW SPONSOR: I have really enjoyed using PrepDish for meal planning lately, and I definitely encourage you to give it a try if you’d like to minimize prep time during the week or just want some healthy new ideas! Visit prep dish.com/plans for your first 2 weeks free. They have an array of menus to choose from, and you get access to them all each week – super fast, gluten free, paleo, or keto.
Solo Weekend Life
Well. It was another solo parenting weekend and . . . I survived. Actually, this one was somewhat better — I did have some childcare on Saturday morning (I had a work event involving yoga in a park!) and Sunday included a zoo trip (Palm Beach Zoo this time, which was lovely!) with A’s BFF, BFF’s twin brother, and their mother who I am friends with.
ALSO, A had her very last soccer game of the season. (As you may recall, G dropped out). She says she wants to play again in the fall. I am hoping the school team is up and running this fall because that would be incredibly convenient, but I guess we will see.
@ the zoo:
I feel really tired today, though. I feel like I need a week off. Luckily, Josh and I do have a mini getaway this week (Weds – Friday!). I will be back Wednesday for the giveaway, but otherwise I think I will take a break from this space for a week or so and I am going to skip doing a BLP ep this coming Monday. I’m also considering a BLP Summer Hiatus (because let’s face it — June/July aren’t really key times of the year for planning, anyway).
OH! And I read this book:
It was like candy and I enjoyed it.
