April Favorites

Some of my favorite blog posts and YouTube videos are ones where people share their favorite things. For the most part, I am not loyal to one certain brand or product so I enjoy seeing what other people are loving so I can try new things.

My April favorites might just be the most random assortment of things you've ever seen, but they're all things we've been enjoying so I thought I'd share!

Home Decor - I love decorating our house for every holiday, but there's just something very calming about going back to the neutral, every day decor. Everything on this little table is from Hobby Lobby.

Trolls Soundtrack - There are so many fun songs on this CD and it's been a nice break from Moana! :)

Snuggle the Baby book - Kenley got this for her birthday and it's so cute. It's interactive so you feed, change and swaddle the baby. Then there's a baby to take out of the book and then put to bed at the end. Kyla and Kenley both really love this book.
Original Bamboo Memory Foam Pillow - I complained about my cheap pillows for way too long. I had a couple people suggest these bamboo pillows so one day after a terrible night of sleep I pulled the trigger and ordered two. So far Tyler and I are happy with these. I think I need to take a little of the stuffing out, but I just haven't taken the time to do that yet.
Let's Learn Disposable Placemats - Kenley loves to eat so I figured at the table was the best place to teach her things. These stick to the table and are super easy to remove. I don't keep them on the table all the time, but when I do use them I will sometimes leave them on there for a few days. Kyla loves to test Kenley and see which colors she knows.

Counting Bears with Cups - I blogged about these in November 2012 when Kyla was not quite two, but she loved them. It was fun going back and reading that post. Kenley loves them just as much and I still think everyone should have these. They are great for learning colors, counting, sorting, patterns and also a great tool to work on cleaning up!

Lately I have been giving Kenley just two colors to see if she can sort them into the correct cups. She ends up getting bored of that and always asks for the rest of the colors.

Lastly, because I was eating one while typing this post, Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs - I know they make these for almost every holiday, but the eggs for Easter are just SO good. Thank you Easter Bunny for bringing extra for me this year!

If you missed my March favorites you can read about those here.

Speech & Occupational Therapy Progress

To answer a question I got on my Facebook page, Kase goes to his ABA clinic every day (Monday through Friday) and a different clinic for speech and occupational therapy on Wednesday's and Saturday's.

I think the last time I talked about speech and OT was this post when Kase was having a hard time with transitions out of the clinic. After that happened, his lead therapist from his ABA clinic came and met me at the other clinic to observe and help with the pick up. The same thing happened that day where he tried running out the front door. Thankfully she was there and stopped him and then helped him out to the van. After that day, I talked to his occupational therapist about what we do at the other clinic and we developed a plan.

Before, she would stand there and tell me about his session and those few minutes were just too much for him. They are working on teaching him how to wait, but he's just not there yet and it's not something we should be expecting of him right now. So when I go in to pick him up, his therapist is holding his hand as they greet me, I grab his other hand and we all walk out together (exactly what we do at his ABA clinic). He doesn't have a chance to run away or fall down and he knows what's expected of him. I'm very thankful that she was willing to do this. It has made a huge difference in the last few weeks. Instead of them telling me then how his session went, they email Tyler and I after his sessions on Wednesday's and Saturday's. With his behavior before, I couldn't even focus on what they were telling me so this is a million times better. I'm very happy they have been so flexible and accommodating.

Besides the improvements with the transitions, he's doing much better during the sessions as well. I wanted to share the email we got yesterday from his team. I copied and pasted it, just removed their names. It kind of gives you a sense of what they work on and what challenges they've had in the past.

Hi Amy and Tyler,

Kase had a FANTASTIC day with both K and I! 

Here's K's notes on her session: 
"Kase had a great speech session today! We started in the sensory space for 10 minutes. I kept foreshadowing that when the timer went off, we would put our shoes on and go to a new room for a game. Right when the timer went off, Kase went to put his shoes on! We transitioned to a room with a table (with Kase initially falling on the floor) but he was able to try again and walk back to the door and then to the table without falling the second try. Kase then sat at the table for 15 minutes playing the game Zingo. We targeted matching, yes/no questions ("Did you get a tiger?"), increased language by saying various statements (" I got a _____," "I see a ______," "The ______ goes on top"), and targeted prepositions such as on top, next to, above, under/below."

In OT, Kase transitioned into the bathroom and completed the entire bathroom routine (from toileting to hand washing to transitioning back to the treatment space) without falling on the floor and with only a few verbal cues for what was next! He did a great job taking turns with me on a swing. I used "first...then" language with him a lot today, which he seems to be understanding and following through with more and more. For example, I would say "First push me 2 times, then it's your turn." He followed those directions without crying or eloping to a different activity 4/5 times we did this. He also was showing increasing willingness to participate in fine motor activities and games today. We played one familiar game and with one new toy. Kase did a great job of following my instructions to form a pincer grasp (holding a small object between his thumb and index finger) during the game. I'll have a hand out for you on Saturday with some "heavy work" activities for Kase to try at home to get out some of that energy and receive the input his body needs!

Overall K and I have noticed less climbing on undesirable items, an increase in Kase's ability and willingness to follow directions, and willingness to engage in new games with less tearfulness and resistance! His transitions within the clinic space have gotten easier, less falling and more following us instead of running to another space. We've seen improvements in following "first...then..." directions and willingness to engage in adult lead activities. K and I are having a blast working with Kase and your family and feel encouraged by the progress that we have seen!

You have no idea how awesome it feels to read emails like these. I'm so, SO proud of him!

AND a smile for the camera? I am one lucky Mama! :)

{Autism Awareness} Softball Game & Autism Society Walk

My mom is a softball coach for my hometown team so a few months ago we decided to do an autism awareness game in April and raise some money for our local Autism Society. My mom knew a coach from another team who has a son with autism so she thought he might be interested in participating. He was thrilled to be a part of it and his son actually sang the national anthem, which was my favorite part of the night. He did such a great job!

We sold t-shirts, bracelets and raffle tickets ahead of time. We had several generous people in the community donate items for the raffles and then we also sold raffle tickets at the game. They put their tickets in the prize they wanted to win and then at the end of the game we drew a name for each prize. Also at the game we had concessions and baked goods for sale, with all proceeds going to the Autism Society.

We got very lucky with some nice weather! The teams wore autism awareness shirts and one of the parents donated the awesome socks for the girls to wear.

Grandma/Coach and Kase ready to play ball!
Together, we raised $2,294.65!

I'm still amazed at the support our little community has shown. On Sunday I proudly handed over that money to our local Autism Society. Their organization does great things for families like ours and every penny of that will stay local.

This past Sunday we did an autism walk put on by the Autism Society. We had a team of about 30 of our family and friends. Kase's therapists had a team there too so it was nice seeing all of them and our family could see all of Kase's "pals" as he calls them. We brought stuff for a picnic lunch after the walk and there was a playground for the kids to play. It was a perfect day!

This is our awesome nephew Trey. He loves his Uncle Tyler!

I know I say it a lot, but we truly do have such an amazing support system. We have a lot of people in our lives who love us and would do anything for Kase. I was talking to one of his therapists at the walk and she said she already knew Kase was well loved, but she said it was really great to see so many people there for him that day. We are very blessed!

{Autism Awareness} Ask Me Anything!

Two years ago at this time I was not thinking about Autism Awareness month. To be honest, I'm not even sure if I knew April was Autism Awareness month. At that point, we knew Kase was delayed in his speech, but we still kept telling ourselves that Kyla was a late talker too. It was around this time two years ago that I started noticing his arm flapping was getting more frequent, but autism still wasn't really in my mind. As an elementary school teacher I knew a little bit about autism, but I never could have predicted then that Kase would be diagnosed five months later.

Fast forward to today and obviously I have learned a lot. I am passionate about continuing to learn and, as you all know, am passionate about sharing our story. I am going to a two day autism conference next week and I'm really excited. I will share more about that later!

Today I want to open my blog up to all of you. When talking to people I can sometimes sense that they want to ask questions, but aren't sure how to ask. There is some debate in the autism community on whether April should be autism awareness month or autism acceptance month. In my opinion, it doesn't matter. What matters is that people are talking about it. What matters is that people feel comfortable sharing stories and asking questions. I know it can be a sensitive topic. It took me a few months after Kase was diagnosed to be able to talk about it. But we can't have awareness or acceptance if we all just ignore it.

So with all that being said, what question(s) do you have for me? I would love to answer them! They can be about autism in general, about Kase, or not about autism at all. It sometimes feels like autism consumes our lives, but there's a lot more to our family! :)

Leave a comment here or on my Facebook or Instagram where I will also be posting this. Or if you don't feel comfortable leaving a comment, feel free to email me (amymrsmommy@gmail.com). I will do a blog post next week sometime answering all of your questions.

I hope you all have a great weekend and as always, thank you for following along and being so supportive!

Checking In {30 Miles in 30 Days}

Last time I checked in it was April 10th and I was at 5.0 miles for the month. I thought I'd just give an update on where I'm at and how far I have to go in the next 10 days.

Last Monday, April 10th, I walked 3 miles.

Last Wednesday, April 12th, I walked 2 miles.

This Monday, April 17th I walked/ran 4 miles.

Tuesday, April 18th I went to the gym and did a workout class, which I'm not counting toward my miles. However, I was a little early so I got on the treadmill and got 1 mile in.

Last week I was just walking because I still had a nasty cough and any running would have made me cough for an hour. This week I made myself get moving and run a little bit. On Monday when I did four miles I would run/sprint for four minutes and then walk for about five. Then on Tuesday at the gym I didn't have a lot of time before my class started, but I was determined to get a mile in so I made myself keep running. I walked the first three minutes to warm up and then ran for the next 8 1/2 minutes to finish the mile. I was really proud of myself!

So if you're keeping track with me, that puts me at 15 miles for the month and 15 miles left to go in the next 10 days. Now that I'm over my cold I've been feeling much more motivated so I definitely feel like I can do this!

{Autism Awareness} A Week in our Lives & an Erin Condren Giveaway!

One of my favorite parts about blogging is connecting with people that I never would have otherwise. Some of my blogger friends I have met in person and some I haven't, but regardless, I consider some of them good friends. I'm so happy that blogging has allowed me to "meet" and get to know Elizabeth. Her son is Kase's age and also has autism. We are going through so many of the same things and it's just nice to have someone who really gets it. She is incredibly sweet and I wish we didn't live across the country from one another so we could hang out and our boys could be friends.

Elizabeth and I talk a lot about different therapies, our schedules, the anxiety we have about our boys starting school this fall and all kinds of other random mom stuff. We also share a love for planners and how we stay organized with our busy schedules.

Since April is Autism Awareness Month we decided to each share what a week in our lives looks like. Last week was a pretty normal week for our family so it gives you a good glimpse into what life is like. Kyla is 6 and in Kindergarten, Kase is 4 and doing 31 hours of therapy each week and Kenley is 2 and home with me full time.

Monday, April 10, 2017
6:27 am - Kyla and Kase wake up and come out of their bedroom. Kyla shows us the money she got from the tooth fairy. They both ask for milk and Kase asks for a pop tart. I take Kase to the bathroom and get him dressed. Kyla gets dressed, brushes her teeth and I do her hair. Kase is playing with the iPad.
7:28 am - Tyler and Kyla leave (he takes her to school on his way to work)
7:57 am - I check to make sure my blog post was published and share it on my Facebook page.
8:00 am - I wake Kenley up, get her dressed and get her some milk and cereal.
8:20 am - I get Kase dressed, brush his teeth, and put his socks and shoes on.
8:32 am - We leave the house.
8:58 am - I take Kase into therapy and on the way out talk to another mom for a few minutes.
9:22 am - On the way home I stop and fill the van with gas and then go to the bank. Kenley got her first sucker from the nice lady at the bank.

9:48 am - Kenley and I get home and I start my morning routine (some things I do every week day morning that make me have a more productive day, i.e. make my bed, start a load of laundry, etc.). We play, color, I clean the kids bathroom, we play some more.
11:30 am - I make Kenley lunch (peanut butter sandwich, apple slices and yogurt).
11:50 am - I put her down for her nap. I clean up from lunch, get dinner in the crock pots (pork tenderloin and cheesy potatoes), take a shower, change the laundry, dry my hair, put some makeup on, and then do some work at my desk.

2:15 pm - I wake Kenley up, change her diaper and we leave the house.
2:26 pm - We get to Kyla's school early. Kenley has some goldfish while we wait.
2:48 pm - Kyla comes out of school and we head to get Kase.
3:10 pm - We arrive at Kase's school. His therapist walks out to the van with us and says Kase had a great day!
3:40 pm - We get home and I go through backpacks and get everything put away. I take Kase to the bathroom and then he lays in my bed and watches the iPad for a little bit. While Kenley plays in her room, I read with Kyla in there for about 20 minutes. Kase asks for some chips and then of course the girls both want some too.
5:45 pm - Tyler gets home and we eat dinner. Side note - I need to share this pork tenderloin recipe because we love it. I think it's our favorite meal currently. Kyla and Kenley both had seconds! We didn't make Kase eat it (more on that later).
6:15 pm - I go downstairs and walk on the treadmill while Tyler plays with the kids. This time every night we turn the TV off, put the tablets away, and they just play. I end up walking 3 miles.
7:15 pm - I come upstairs and clean up the kitchen from dinner. The kids start to wind down. We get all their pajamas on and brush their teeth.
7:45 pm - They're all in bed. I fold the laundry that was still sitting in the dryer. Tyler takes a much deserved break and watches some TV. I sit at my desk for awhile, check my planner, and get ready for bed.
8:44 pm - I am in bed!

Tuesday, April 11, 2017
7:12 am - The kids wake up and I look at the clock and realize we all slept in. I rush to get Kyla ready for school.
7:30 am - Tyler and Kyla leave and he drops her off at school. Normally he goes to work after dropping her off, but this morning he came back home so he could take Kase to the dentist (you can read about the dentist appointment here).
8:32 am - Tyler and Kase leave for the dentist.
9:10 am - Kenley finally wakes up. She's been sleeping in later the last couple weeks, but I normally have to wake her up. Today she got to sleep in since we didn't have to take Kase. I get her dressed, we eat breakfast (waffles) and color at the table.

9:35 am - Kase is done at the dentist and Tyler takes him to therapy.
10:30 am - I take a shower and get myself ready for the day while Kenley plays on the iPad.
11:45 am - We eat lunch (chicken patty, chips and yogurt). I don't put Kenley down for a nap because she slept in late and we have to leave earlier today.
1:40 pm - We leave the house to pick Kase up. On Tuesday's he gets done an hour early so we pick him up first, then Kyla.
2:15 pm - We pick Kase up and talk to two of his therapists for a few minutes. They said he had a great day.
2:20 pm - We leave for Kyla's school.
2:45 pm - We arrive at Kyla's school and wait a couple minutes for her to come out.
3:05 pm - We get home, I unpack their bags and lunch boxes, then read with Kyla for about 20 minutes. Then we just hang out and play until dinner.
5:00 pm - I eat dinner early because I'm starving and I'm going to be leaving as soon as Tyler gets home.
5:35 pm - Tyler gets home and him and the kids eat dinner (leftovers).
5:45 pm - I leave for Target and get the rest of the stuff for the Easter baskets.
7:15 pm - I get home and Tyler is in the middle of doing baths. I help finish them up, get pajamas on, brush teeth, brush hair, and we read books. Tyler usually reads to each kid separately before bed, but tonight I read to Kenley.
7:55 pm - All three kids are in bed and sound asleep. I clean up the kitchen and then sit down to do some planning.
9:05 pm - I get ready for bed and check social media a little bit before falling asleep.

Wednesday, April 12, 2017
6:26 am - Kyla and Kase wake up. We get all three kids dressed, fed, teeth brushed, etc.

7:33 am - We all leave the house. Kase has speech and occupational therapy on Wednesday mornings starting at 8:00 so Tyler drops him off on the way to school. Therefore, Kenley and I take Kyla to school.
7:50 am - We drop Kyla off.
7:55 am - Tyler drops Kase off at therapy.
8:03 am - Kenley and I get home. I get Kenley dressed, we eat breakfast together (cereal), and then she watches cartoons while I do my morning routine.
9:30 am - We leave the house to go pick Kase up.
9:55 am - We arrive at the clinic and go in to wait for Kase. His occupational therapist walks out to the van with us.
10:22 am - We get home and the kids play while I take pictures of their Easter baskets in the other room. We eat lunch and I pack Kase's bag for his afternoon therapy.
12:30 pm - We leave to take Kase to therapy.
12:58 pm - We arrive at Kase's ABA clinic and I take him in.
1:25 pm - Kenley and I arrive home. She's in need of a nap, but we have to leave soon to get Kyla so we just relax on the couch and watch Toy Story.
2:20 pm - We leave the house, again!
2:50 pm - We pick Kyla up from school.
3:15 pm - We arrive at Kase's school a little early and just hang out in the van.
3:30 pm - I go in and get Kase. His therapist said he had an awesome day. By the way, I should add in case anyone is wondering, I park on the street right in front of the clinic's front door. His therapists know I have two other kids in the van so they have him all ready and meet me at the front door. So I don't have to get the girls out and then get them all right back in again. We meet at the front door, I take Kase's hand, they have his other hand, and we all walk out to the van. As Kase is getting in his seat and getting buckled is when they will tell me about his day. It works out very nicely!
3:50 pm - We get home, I put dinner in the oven (baked ziti), go through backpacks, and pick up the house. The kids play and color at the table. Tyler gets home early because Kase's lead therapist is coming for a dinner observation.
5:00 pm - She arrives and we eat dinner. The observation and attempt at getting Kase to eat a bite of dinner did not go well at all. It was exhausting and just plain hard. They started his official food training program yesterday. It took 70 minutes for him to eat one bite of toast (something he used to love and then stopped eating).
6:40 pm - His therapist leaves and we're all drained. I won't go into every detail about the dinner situation, but besides seeing Kase extremely upset, there was urine and vomit (from gagging on the dinner) to be cleaned up. I'm not exaggerating when I say he has severe food aversions. It's a real thing guys and it's really, really hard. There's nothing worse than seeing your kids upset, but he can't eat chips and applesauce for every meal. I hope that we can start to make some progress soon.
6:50 pm - After I get things cleaned up, I go downstairs and walk on the treadmill while Tyler and the kids play. I'm extremely thankful for him. He could tell I just needed a little time away and was willing to hold down the fort upstairs with the kids while I escaped for a bit.
7:40 pm - All three kids are in bed. I clean up from dinner, send a couple emails, and get ready for bed.
8:30 pm - I go to bed. Yes, I go to bed this early. :)

Thursday, April 13, 2017
Tyler has to travel one day a week (usually) and this was his travel day so he left super early.
6:30 am - I set my alarm on the mornings that he's gone so I make sure I have enough time to get all three kids and myself ready to leave by 7:30.
7:33 am - We leave the house to take Kyla to school. When we were about 5 minutes away, I remembered that Kyla was supposed to bring a toy to school today. I thought about just forgetting it, but we forgot about it last week too (#momfail) and she was really sad about it. I asked her about it and she got upset so I turned around. Then she was upset because she thought she'd be late for school. I promised her I wouldn't let her be late. She was a few minutes later than she usually is, but she wasn't late.
8:07 am - We get back home and get Kase's backpack and lunch ready. I brush his teeth and help him get his socks and shoes on. I get Kenley dressed.
8:35 am - We leave the house to take Kase to therapy. I grab a pack of mini muffins since we hadn't eaten yet. Both kids ate them.
9:00 am - We drop Kase off. We're usually a few minutes early and he will ask me to play tickle monster.

9:10 am - I go through McDonald's drive thru for a breakfast sandwich.
9:30 am - I have an appointment to get my blood pressure checked. I was at the doctor the week before for my wrist and had high blood pressure at that time (I've never had high blood pressure in my life) so they wanted to recheck it. Today it was normal. I think it was because I was really sick the week before.
10:15 am - We get home and I take a shower. Kenley hangs out in the bathroom with me and pretends she's a monster through the shower door. :)
12:00 pm - My mom had the day off so she comes over.
12:30 pm - I put Kenley down for a nap.
2:20 pm - We leave to pick up the kids (my mom comes with us).
2:50 pm - We get Kyla.
3:15 pm - We get Kase (he had another great day) and then go to Culver's for ice cream and an early dinner. When we get home I sit at the table and help Kyla with her math homework and Kase and Kenley play with Grandma and watch some cartoons.
6:00 pm - I had my alarm set because registration opened for Kyla's summer school classes and they fill up fast. I get her all signed up for two classes.
6:15 pm - Tyler gets home, my mom leaves and I take a bath.
7:40 pm - Kase and Kenley are in bed. Since Kyla doesn't have school tomorrow she gets to stay up later and sleep with me tonight.
8:50 pm - Kyla and I turn the lights off and go to sleep.

Friday, April 14, 2017
6:25 am - Kyla and Kase wake up and we do our morning stuff. Kyla doesn't have school today, Tyler has a half day of work and Kase has a normal day of therapy. Tyler waited to go to to work so he could drop Kase off on his way.
8:30 am - Tyler and Kase leave. Kyla, Kenley and I have waffles for breakfast. This morning was just spent playing and cleaning the house.
1:00 pm - Tyler gets home and I head out to run a few errands and do some shopping.
3:15 pm - I pick Kase up at therapy. His therapists said he had a great day and they showed me a video of him on the swing (which he normally hates). He was smiling and said, "This is fun!"
3:45 pm - We get home and Kase is sound asleep. I carry him in and he lays on the couch for while.

5:15 pm - We have pizza for dinner and then really just hang out the rest of the night. Everyone was tired from a long week.
7:45 pm - The kids are in bed. I do the dishes and then work on my computer for awhile.
9:45 pm - I go to bed.

Normally Kase will have speech and occupational therapy on Saturday's from 11:00-1:00, but he didn't this Saturday since it was Easter weekend. Our Easter was very low key. We stayed home, got some things done around the house and spent lots of time playing outside. We went to bed Sunday night ready to tackle another busy week!

There's no way I could keep all of this straight without my planner. Yesterday I shared my current planner setup, but I am also a huge fan of Erin Condren planners. I've used them since 2011 and more than likely will be getting one at some point in 2017 because I have a $100 gift card to use up. They have a ton of other things besides planners so I will have no problem finding things to buy if I don't feel the need for another planner.

Luckily for all of you, Elizabeth and I are giving away a $50 Erin Condren gift card over on Instagram. It's super easy to enter and will be posted this morning (spoiler alert - 9:15 am CST) on both our accounts. Also, make sure you go over and check out Elizabeth's post and see how she spent her week with her sweet son, Mason!

Thanks for making it all the way through this long post. There are times when I feel like a taxi driver, but we do what we have to do to make sure our kids are getting everything they need. Some day I will look back on this post and miss all the running around!

My Current Planner Setup

Let me start by saying I realize phones nowadays have a calendar and are fully capable of keeping my life organized. That just doesn't work for me. I keep my planner open on my desk (or sometimes on our kitchen counter) at all times and look at it several times a day. I'm a paper and pen girl for life!

I started out the year using my Plum Paper planner. I love that it has the different sections and I really do still love this planner. However, I recently decided to try something new.

I got this large Kikki K planner and some Sew Much Crafting inserts awhile ago and I never used them. Although my planners are used for functional purposes, I also enjoy decorating them with stickers and color coding things with fun pens. And every few months, I tend to get bored and switch things up. Since I had this one collecting dust I thought I'd try it out.

I wasn't using a ton of stickers in my Plum Paper planner and I kinda missed it. I also missed having my days in chronological order. You can see with the Plum Paper planner that there isn't really a way to put things in order. I just listed things we had going on for each section.

With my new setup, I can color code with stickers and pens for each kid, but also keep things in order from top to bottom. I made my own little sections for dinners and blog posts.

The one thing I miss with this setup is the sidebar where I can keep a running to do list of things I need to do throughout the week. So I have been keeping a little half sheet in there, just for weekly notes and to do's. I cut little slits where the holes are so it can go in and out easily without opening the whole planner.

In the front I have a little pad of paper and there are a couple pockets where I keep appointment reminder cards, invitations, and sticker sheets that I use frequently.

There are dividers and tabs that came with the planner. My first section is for my monthly pages where I write down appointments and other things I know ahead of time.

The second section is the weekly pages. I usually sit down on Sunday's with a blank slate and plan the week with everything I know we have going on. The rest gets filled in as I go.

The third section is to-do's.

The fourth section is my notes section. I keep a running wish list of things I want, things I want to get the kids, things we want for the house, etc. I also keep my zone cleaning pages in this section as well as a bunch of blank note pages.

The fifth section is my check register, which I'm not going to share, but it's another insert from Sew Much Crafting.

The sixth section is sticker sheets that came with the planner.

In the very back is this blank note pad, just for writing quick notes while I'm on the phone or out and about.

I'm really loving this setup and the fun colors for Spring and Summer. I fully admit that this is a super nerdy hobby, but it makes me happy. :)

What planner do you use and do you color code or use stickers? I'd love to hear from some of my #plannernerd friends! :)
