6. It’s question city with my 5-year-old Quinn…. Is Santa always watching me? Can he see me if I’m under my bed? Yeah but HOW!? How is he watching? Does he use a telescope? Can you see bats with telescopes? Have you ever seen a bat? Are bats real? What’s the opposite of nocturnal? It doesn’t matter if you tell Santa because he is always watching and already knows. #busted – See what other 5-year-olds are asking here.
7. It’s official. My sleeping situation went from good to I HEAR ANGELS SING when I get into bed. And it’s all because of this gem.

9. Just started using the Start Hustle Daily Planner and it is changing my life. (File under: Well Scene swag!) I’m a digital girl through and through which is why I was resisting a paper planner. But having notes in “this folder”, “that email” and lists here and there was stressing me out. I was in desperate need of a command center. I still put everything in my Google Cal and that is my primary BUT on Sunday I write out the week in my planner. This way I can keep lists, check things off, look at the week as a whole – it really helps to prioritize, see big picture and stay focused. Plus love how this one has a place to check off your 8 glasses of water everyday, pills, workouts, a daily schedule by time and tons of lists spaces. 5 days in and I can feel my stress level dropping. Praise be!
10. Avoid getting sick this winter with over 30 ways to support your immune system naturally! I have a fresh batch of elderberry syrup stocked and ready to go!
11. I’m Coming Clean over at Clove + Hallow!
12. Okay Marry, F, Kill: Jackson Avry, DeLuca and Ortho God Linc. I’ll start. First question. How tall are these guys…okay, focus. I mean sad to say because I’ve been tuning in for years to catch a glimpse of Jackson Avry but now Linc is on the scene and did everyone see the way DeLuca bore into Gray with his “I’m sorry for kissing you apology”?! Slay me! Okay final answer: marry DeLuca, F Linc and kill Jackson – GASP! Who just said that!? I love you Dr. Avry but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!
