day designer

1. I have officially entered the world of the Day Designer. It’s like a life planner, but on crack. And I mean that in a good way. 2015 is going to be the year of life/love/work/blog organization. I can tell.

2. Plus it is SO CUTE and it arrives wrapped in gold polka dotted wrapping paper. I won’t even tell you how much I squealed.

3. Yesterday I decided what I’m going to be for Halloween. I’ll give you three guesses.

4. Okay, fine you know I can’t keep secrets from you: A “NO SMOKING” sign. If you knew how often I scream DISGUSTING at people who are smoking right next to the hospital’s “No Smoking” signs, then you would understand how perfect this is.

5. It’s really less of a costume and more like what my everyday life mantra is. Just shoved in people’s faces EVEN MORE.

6. YES, the runner up was a bunch of kale. You guys know me too well.

7. Last night I fried my first donuts. It was probably the best/worst decision of my life. And a little too easy. Recipe to come on Friday!

8. Tonight is our wedding food tasting!!

9. I’ve already given our caterer at least twenty different specifications on how I’ve always pictured my ideal wedding salad. Normal.

10. It’s a miracle she hasn’t fired us yet.

  3. YEAH for your tasting tonight! Have so much fun!!

    Wedding food tasting. Does it call for stretchy pants?

  5. Can’t wait to hear about the wedding food!

  6. Your costume idea is my favorite of life. In Sicily EVERYONE smokes. I can’t even drink my morning cappuccino without second hand smoking the asshole’s cig beside me. I wish I had your courage. Also, you neeeeeed to tell us about the wedding food tasting. SO FUN!

  7. Trisha says:

    I have a day designer and I LOVE it. My favorite parts of the top 3 and the daily gratitude box. Want to hear the deets about this wedding catering!!

  8. cheri says:

    Hi Joanne, would love to see a pic of your costume, good for you. Can’t wait to hear about the food…….

  9. Haha – love your Halloween costume! They banned smoking in outdoor restaurant patios here in GA – but you wouldn’t know it!
    Yay for wedding taste testing – hope all goes well and looking forward to those donuts!

  10. Trevor thinks everyone should dress up as a giant bowl of pasta for Halloween. In case, you change your mind..

  11. bahahahaa I love your costume!!!

    and I’m SO jealous that you have that much control over your wedding menu! I just have some choices to pick between-and there’s no tasting (but luckily my venue does a dinner once a month where you can come and eat food that’s usually an option for the wedding menu)

    I need to checkout Day Designer – anything to help get me more organized.

  13. Heather says:

    I’m going to have remember that Day Designer Planner for next year since I already got my momAgenda planner for this year.

    Anxiously awaiting the donut recipe, and love the Halloween costume!!!

  14. Christina says:

    I totally guessed Kale 🙂

  15. Pam says:

    Love the day planner… I need one! Great costume! Nothing drives me more than smokers near doorways. UGH. Have fun with your wedding meal tasting tonight! YUM.

  16. I just bought my first day designer too 🙂 So looking forward to 2015 organization!!

  17. Sues says:

    omg I might have to re-think my planner philosophy after 4 years of Erin Condren…

    Have SOOO much fun at your tasting!!!

  18. Monica says:

    Your coffee talks are always so entertaining. : ) Wedding tasting sounds so good…I can just picture your wedding reception (though I hope we’ll get to see a few pics after the big day).
    P.S. – do you go to Eric Kayser on the UES (now that I realize you’re around there)? So good…their pain aux cereales/grainy bread is incredible (as are the pastries). : )

    Does your Day Designer have a hook to an online shared calendar? I just started dating this woman and, as a sign of my commitment, I have created a shared calendar for her from my yahoo calendar. I think you will find that sharing something like that with your hubby to be will make life much easier.

    Day designer looks so pretty. After you posted it on instagram I went to the website and downloaded the trial page to test it out for a few days. It’s so sleek and organized and there’s a daily gratitude. AH. It looks awesome. The only thing holding me back is the price and I’m not sure if I can use it once I start clinics in June. My entire day may look like “CLINICS ET AL” after that. YIKES.

    Have fun at the wedding tasting! Sounds fun, show us some pictures of the food selections!

    PS I vote for the No Smoking sign costume 🙂 After you use it as a costume you can hang it up in your apartment (maybe by the doorway area) as decoration!

  21. Rachel says:

    I really need to look into this day designer! also wedding food tasting sounds amazingly awesome!

  22. I’m a pen and paper kind of gal and I’m swooning over that day designer. (You had me at the name)

    Hope your wedding food tasting exceeded your expectations + looking forward to those homemade donuts, yum!

  23. Kate says:

    I so need a planner. I went to grab one from Target last weekend and they were completely sold out!

  24. i made doughnuts a few weeks ago. they were so good!

  25. Love your costume. I often feel that way walking down the street and someone blows a big puff and it shoots back to me. I overact and act like I’m dying, but still.. it’s gross!

  26. I hope you post a picture of yourself in your Halloween costume ;). Although I would have loved see you as a bunch of kale too!

  27. Day designer looks interesting! I am massively disorganise and need a life/love/work/blog organisation! Might have to check it out!.

  28. Enjoy the tasting, and I’m so with you on the no smoking thing 🙂

  29. Emma says:

    I want a Day Designer!! Looking forward to donuts… I hope they are not TOO easy, v.v. dangerous to have an easy donut recipe lying around when you are about to go on maternity leave. I hope your food tasting was glorious!!

  30. The hospital where I work has recently gone smoke free on the whole campus, and I really hate walking in the grounds past the smokers huddled just outside the ‘no smoking area’ breathing smoke into the no smoking area. I don’t really know where I want them to go instead (at least their outside!) but I support your Halloween costume idea whole heartedly 😀

  31. I now really want to see both photos of your Halloween costume (love!) and your wedding food tasting!

  32. OMG I totally read about this on How Sweet it is…. WANT! Tell me how it works out for you! OMG wedding food tasting, this is like the best part of planning a wedding!

  33. I could use one of those day designers too. I hope you have fun tasting the food for the wedding.

  34. I need to get a planner…life planner. My life is bursting out of control!! Will look into yours 🙂

    PS: Can you share your version of your dream salad with us? You know I am a stalker of your salad category (especially in the fall)

  35. Hotly Spiced says:

    I hope the food tasting went well. I think your costume sounds fantastic and I do hope you have a photo for us. I think I need a day organiser – we’re falling apart down here xx

  36. Reeni says:

    That’s a pretty Day Designer! I gave mine up and switched to Erin Condren. I felt like it was too fancy to be in the kitchen with me getting sticky and spilled on. Hope your tasting went well!

  37. LOVE your costume idea – too funny!! You could totally dress as a no smoking sign WHO HANDS OUT KALE and get the best of both worlds 😉

  38. Kelly says:

    Haha love your costume – hope you had a great Halloween and your wedding food tasting went well 🙂
