A present for me

We went to Target this weekend because Zac wanted a new polo shirt. He is insanely picky when it comes to clothes (and most things. But in a good way?) and he loves these - so he now owns eight of them.

Anyway, I digress. While we were there, I picked out a fun new nail polish color (stone grey - so trendy) and also came across this beautiful thing:

It's a notebook. The most beautiful notebook I had ever seen and it was like I immediately knew I'd been missing it for my whole life. And if you know me well, you'll know that I'm (sadly) not exaggerating here.

I've been on the lookout for a notebook that could be my everything. It's separate from my calendar, but where I can keep everything important in once place. Lists, meeting notes, ideas, etc. And this baby might just be it.

It's not moleskin, but it has a similar look. The cover is a really thick cardboard, but it seems pretty sturdy. The pages lie flat for it being so thick.

All the pages are blank and lined. My big dilemma was whether I wanted to divide it into sections for various things (home, work, blog, etc.), but ultimately I decided I'll just go chronologically and see how that goes.

Do you have a notebook or system like this? How do you use it? Is there something awesome that I'm missing that would be awesome? 

And yes, I'm that kid who was beyond excited to go school suppy shopping each fall. But if you read this blog and we're at least online friends, I'm pretty sure you were too!


  1. I love it! And I am a journal, planner, binder write every thing to the max crazy- so I have notebook empathy with you! I do a Random Journal Day Link Up every Thursday if you ever want to share your random writings, musings etc. Non Judgement Zone- please feel free to drop by, and share! Enjoy filling those blank blank pages!

  2. So cute.
    I love the red color!
    It'll stick out no matter where you place it.
    I too loved school supply shopping...but I'm sure you knew that ;)

  3. I see you checked out some chairs. Are you getting closer to making a decision? Enjoy life with your little red notebook :)


I love reading your comments - thanks for being a wonderful part of my blogging experience!
