To get children started, we will send every child home with a Breyer model horse to play with and enjoy.”

Daily Journaling with Erin Condren + Giveaway


Daily Journaling with Erin Condren1


Daily Journaling with Erin Condren

Journaling is such a huge part of my every day life. In 2002 I was in a very bad car accident. There is a lot of time that was lost, that I will never remember. Most of which is good, and is part of my brain coping with tragedy. Since that moment, I have this incessant need to remember everything. Honestly, no one can remember everything. Another coping tool that I have practiced since then is journaling. I’ve journaled for years.

This tool was therapeutic for me on many occasions. Some of those occasions were infertility struggles, depression, finding out someone close to me was battling addiction, and various other reasons. It has always been a way to release, to let go. A way for me to get everything weighing on my mind off of it.

Now, being a mom, I find myself wanting to remember the moments that go by so fast with Abby. The things she says or does. These precious moments are so fleeting. I now believe the wise people who have said to me “the days are long but the years fleeting.” There’s parts that I want to remember. I also use my journal to take the time out for much needed self-care. Time to express gratitude in my everyday blessings, to motivate and inspire myself to keep on keeping on.

Why Erin Condren?

Simple! I have always been an EC girl. Since 2011 to be exact. However after curating my own planner/organizer/notebook for work via the Arc system, I realized how I loved the ability to add and remove pages. So recently for my “planning” needs I switched over to a Happy Planner. I couldn’t just abandon my EC, they’ve been so good to me over the years.  Add in the stickers, ohhhh the stickers, and her cute little compliment cards – I will forever be faithful.

Erin Condren Planner and Stickers

I decided to use my EC planner as a way to document and chronicle my days. It makes a perfect little journal for a quick daily brain dump, or even as a tool to motivate yourself. I use it as a tool and I do that by utilizing the Erin Condren Stickers. I use the Classic Sticker Book, but have been eyeing up the brand NEW Monthly Sticker Book.

Before Journaling in Erin Condren

I set up my week with stickers that would make great journaling prompts and then I just speak my mind.

Daily Journaling with Erin Condren

Then once I go through the week it gets filled up with my thoughts. I usually take the left column to write a quote that speaks to me at the moment, and the bottom right corner of this photo is a sticker from Crafted By Corley that I color myself. This process does wonders for me, and I know that next year I will opt for the horizontal layout for journaling purposes.

There is so many cute things that I would love to stock up on. Especially the Valentines Bundle.

The good news for friends of Friendspired is that we are teaming up with A Life In Balance & A Grande Life to offer a really sweet giveaway!

Think Rich with Entenmann’s

I worked with Entenmann’s to bring you this sweepstakes opportunity & giveaway.

We are huge Entenmann’s fans in our house. Considering my husband and daughter are obsessed with sweets, we constantly have Entenmann’s Rich Frosted Donuts in our house at all times. While I don’t have a huge sweet tooth, I can’t resist the Crumb Topped Donuts.

They bring back my childhood days. I have memories of sharing donuts with my Nan and Poppy with a cold glass of milk. Now watching Abby and Bill share them together, I hope that those moments stay with her.


Think Rich

Entenmann’s® Bakery has a rich history of scrumptious baked goods that date back over a century. Mr. Rich Frosted, the iconic Entenmann’s Rich Frosted Donut, was introduced to the Entenmann’s family in 1973 and has been the Entenmann’s #1 selling donut since. The Rich Frosted cake-style donut is covered in rich, wonderfully smooth, chocolatey frosting, take a bite and hear the crack of the Rich Frosted shell and enjoy the delicious soft yellow cake. The Entenmann’s family of donuts includes Crumb Topped donuts (aka Mrs. Crumb) in addition to seasonal favorites like the Lemon Crumb, Harvest Pumpkin and Cider Donuts.


Entenmann’s has been thinking rich for a long time, that’s why this January Entenmann’s will be hosting the “Entenmann’s Start the Rich Life with $5,000 Sweepstakes,” offering up to $15,000 in cash prizes and fun plush toys! If you’re one the lucky winners, here’s what you can win: one (1) Grand Prize winner will be awarded $5,000 in the form of a check, and you can head right to the bank! Ten (10) First Place Prize winners will be awarded $1,000 in the form of an American Express gift card, starting off the new year just right. And that’s not all; twenty five (25) Second Place Prize winners will receive a Rich Frosted Plush Toy. What better way to celebrate the Entenmann’s bestselling donut!

Win It!

Entenmann’s is giving 1 lucky Friendspired reader their very own prize pack package that will include four (4) Entenmann’s Coupons valued at $7.00 each and one (1) custom Entenmann’s Start the Rich Life bank, valued at $10, for all of your cash flow.
