Plum Paper Planner Giveaway Recap

IIn an effort to be a little more organized and more focused during the new year, I have decided to rekindle my attempts to use a planner. I was somewhat successful when I initially started to show interest but found that I got too caught up in the aesthetics and lost focus on its purpose.

The Prize

A Plum Paper Planner punched and fully useable with a caveat, that some of the punches are off, leaving the winner with the option to either stick with the punches the way they are or trim the margin and re-punch the pages to make them more uniform.

Let me be clear, the punch defects do not make the pages any less functional. They are still 100% usable. The planner runs from January 1st, 2017 to June 30, 2018.

Rules & Guidelines

  • The giveaway is open to US entries ONLY except where prohibited by law unless otherwise noted. No purchase is necessary. The prize(s) and value of the prize(s) are listed above. All prizes will be awarded.
  • You must be 13 years or older to participate.
  • The giveaway will begin on Tuesday, December 6, 2016 at 12:00am MST(AZ) and will end on Friday, December 23, 2016 at 11:59pm MST(AZ)

  • The winner has 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen.
  • The planner will be shipped out as timely as possibly, however I ask that you please allow up to 2-4 weeks for prize delivery after confirmation.

Now that we’ve gone through the refresher portion, I suppose it’s time to announce the lucky winner!

Plum Paper Planner Giveaway

In an effort to be a little more organized and more focused during the new year, I have decided to rekindle my attempts to use a planner. I was somewhat successful when I initially started to show interest but found that I got too caught up in the aesthetics and lost focus on its purpose.

With that in mind, I decided to purchase a Plum Paper Planner to start off 2017, unbound and unpunched. My plan was to punch it myself and then stick it in my A5 binder, which I did, only to find that the left margins were bigger than anticipated so the pages do not fit. The binder is not able to close thus rendering it for the most part, useless.

After my initial disappointment, I decided to order a bound Plum Paper Planner and host a giveaway for the pages that I have punched. The only caveat is that some of the punches are off, so you can either stick with the punches the way they are or trim the margin and re-punch the pages to make them more uniform.

Let me be clear, the punch defects do not make the pages any less functional. They are still 100% usable. The planner runs from January 1st, 2017 to June 30, 2018.

Being A Mom = A Loss of Self?

I’ve been having a back and forth discussion with myself on whether or not I want to keep The Baby Project; given how far I have fallen behind on it. The initial plan was to use that as my infertility blog1, to talk about the journey and the trials associated with trying to get pregnant via IVF, but as time went on I found that I was always falling behind. Due to the treatments and the side effects of all of the medications, I didn’t have the drive nor the motivation to truly write about my journey, so rather than fake it, I decided I would just let things die and now I’m at a crossroad.

I could continue on with it, do a series of posts to catch up to where we are now, and then continuing to use it to document my life as a new mother or I could let it die next year and transfer all the contents here. Both options sound appealing in their own ways but I don’t know if I have the desire or drive to maintain two blogs. I’m not as young and idealistic as I used to be.

A lot of people have this aversion to being considered a “mommy blogger” or having their personal blog shift to mommy blogging and while I can definitely understand where they are coming from, for me, I just don’t care. Because guess what?

I AM A MOM.

Being A Good Mom And with that territory comes the knowledge and the understanding that I will discuss my children and my life as a mom on my personal blog. What’s the point of it being personal if you feel the need to limit the content that you write about, especially personal content about the life you live day in and day out? Plus, it doesn’t mean that will be the ONLY thing that I discuss. I still have hobbies and interests outside of being a mom. The key and something I think I will have to learn is finding a way to balance being a mom and being an individual. It’s not impossible and it’s one of my main goals for the new year.

Find that balance. Hold on to a piece of my individual self, even when everyone and everything is constantly dragging me in the direction of “You’re a mom now” and everything else is secondary.

Well, I disagree, I am and always have been multi-faceted. I am a wife, but I’m also an individual who enjoys web design and development, gaming, reading, interior design, etc., and I plan to do everything I can to ensure that doesn’t change.

My one and only resolution for the New Year is not to lose myself as I jump feet first in to the waters of parenthood.

When it comes to being a mom or just balancing the multiple roles you have; what techniques do you employ? Are they effective?


In light of my commitment to ensure I don’t lose a piece of myself as I transition to being a mom, I have taken up planning;. Admittedly, I’m still trying to find my grove and find time to consistently plan, but I did find that when I was planning consistently, it helped to keep me motivated and on task.

Gamer’s Choice Giveaway

Ever since I was younger, gaming has been a big part of my life. I started out with a Commodore 64 and then moved on to the Atari, followed by the Nintendo and Super Nintendo. Afterwards, my dad decided to branch off and introduced us to the Sega Genesis, and the list goes on and on (I did however take a brief break from my gamer lifestyle in my late teens).

For the most part we were a Playstation household but I met R, who favored the XBOX. I could never really get into the XBOX because I hated the controls… honestly, I hate all analog controllers, but I do occasionally use the XBOX for applications like Netflix or HBO GO.

Now, with the latest release of the XBOX One and PlayStation 4, we’ve decided NOT to purchase them, but I figure it can’t hurt to try to win one right? If you agree, then you have a great opportunity to enter the Gamer’s Choice Giveaway, which lets the winner choose between an XBOX One or a Playstation 4! If you’re like us and can’t really justify spending the money on one of these systems or you’d like to win for one of your gamer friends/relatives, take a stab and enter the giveaway!

You never know, you just might win! ;)
