Insta-Friday #169

My week(s) in iPhone photos and video. Let’s recap!

MAMBI Happy Planner Fresh Floral

I jumped ship. I switched from my favorite ring-bound planner. I’d been thinking about it for a while. I really wanted to try an Erin Condren Life Planner but I just couldn’t see myself ever dropping that much money. Plus, I wasn’t keen on their continued quality control and customer service issue.

Then, the Happy Planner came along. And it’s set up kind of exactly the same. But it’s much cheaper. AND it’s available at Michael’s which meant I could get it with a 40% off coupon. Done deal.

Plus, since it’s disc bound you can easily add or remove pages to customize it to your needs. I’m sure I’ll be posting more about it once I get the hang of a new system.

Grilling season is here! I’ve been snapping my cooking process a lot lately (when I bother to cook). Not sure if it’s interesting to anyone else, but I enjoy it.

Loot Pets Megaman Matching Pug Shirts

Did a little photo shoot with our matching Megaman shirts from last month’s Loot Pets.

Kuranda Cot Style Bed

I was so happy to get the chance to review a Kuranda Bed recently. I knew from word of mouth that they were great orthopedic beds for dogs with bad joints. Molly just turned 13, and she’s really had a lot of stiffness and pain the past year.

The vet and I decided just recently to start her on a daily regimen of anti-inflammatory medication and I think the combination of the two will really offer her some relief.

I was kind of a mean mom this day. I let Pug push around the treat jar knowing full well he’d never get into it AND it was empty anyway.

Peel Wood Fired Pizza Beer Flight

Gotta love a good beer flight! I like exploring new craft beers, but I don’t drink often enough to try a lot of new varieties. As you’ll see here I’m not a dark beer drinker at all. I actually love fruity beers (that still taste like beer) so the summer brews are always a favorite of mine.

Pug Slump

So. Damn. Majestic.

MAMBI Happy Planner Decorating Party

So I got my BFF on the planner bandwagon (and she got her sister, it’s an epidemic!) and we couldn’t contain ourselves. The Happy Planner’s we bought don’t start until July but we got together and started decorating early.
