may i have your attention please

announcements
ahh, think back to high school. remember those all-important 'announcements' broadcasted in crackly lo-fi over the PA system each morning? things like, "tryouts for the production of guys and dolls will be held in the auditorium at 3:30 today!" or "the french club will be hosting their annual macaron-only bake sale today" (okay, not really).


hmm, it seems so archaic. maybe this practice has been replaced by an email or tweet! i'll have to ask one of my patients.

oh my GOD i am old.

anyway. so onto the announcements! i'll save the best for last. (don't get TOO excited. this is not like jessica's recent announcement).

#1: introducing the breakfast challenge
i wrote about being in a food rut a few weeks ago. thumbing through my new cookbook, i was impressed with a number of interesting breakfast ideas. and yet,

day in . . .

and day out,

i pretty much eat the same variations on a theme. a tasty, but very repetitive theme. i would like to change this! as much as i enjoy this breakfast, i think i would appreciate some variety if i could just bring myself to make something else in the wee hours (i eat breakfast ridiculously early).

so next week i am going to explore the world of more exciting morning meals with a breakfast challenge! there are only two rules in this game.

a) i have to eat something different for breakfast each day

b) only one day out of the seven may be a variation on my standard theme

i am excited! of course, i have many of my favorite food blogs to turn to for inspiration in addition to my cookbooks. i think this will be fun and i will be sure to share the hits & misses of the week.

announcement #2: home is where the heart is
i am going to take part in the apartment therapy 20/20 home cure! unofficially, though, because signup is closed. basically, this is a 20-day program promising apartment bliss (and maybe inner peace?) at the low, low price of just 20 minutes a day.


i think this will be fun! <-- sick and twisted, perhaps, but true. anyone up for joining me late to this party? let me know!

announcement #3: 2011 is almost here!
i promised a very SHU box giveaway yesterday -- so i hope this suffices! see, as you all know i am quite happy with my recent planner purchase. but what i did not mention was that this little gem was a bit of an impulse buy. i had actually already ordered a space 24.


you all probably can tell where this is going! it was backordered, so by the time it actually arrived, i had already settled into my exotic little import. but the space 24 is still a beautiful and rock-solid stationery creation that i feel strongly should not go to waste.

and therefore, i will be giving it away to one of you! the cover is of the club style:


and the color is a bright bamboo.


so as long as you would be okay with carrying around an iguana-colored planner (i would!), then enter the giveaway below.

all you need to do to play is to share one thing you are planning for in 2011 in today's comment section. to get an extra entry, post a link to the contest in your blog and leave a comment letting me know you did!

contest will close in the early morning of tuesday, 11/16. and yes, i will ship internationally if need be.

As much as I do like the practicality of the 2011 planner I got at walmart, the thin paper bleeds so I'm entering the contest! In 2011 I am planning to (work) revise our resident teaching curriculum for the rheum rotation and (fun) attempt to take 2 weeks off in a row for a vacation!

da said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

For me, breakfast routine is a plus. I'd be lost without my daily "bolaCheerios"!

Meredith said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I'm planning on finishing my masters in May 2011 -- working full time and getting my masters degree has completely zapped my free time and I'm ready to get it back!

Katie said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

in 2011 I would like to run another half and full marathon and PR both of them. I would also like to improve my yoga practice.

Katie said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

In 2011 I will be moving!! I cannot wait to get away from our current landlord! I'm also excited to decorate a new place and get "grown up" furniture. I just finished grad school so I've been working with college handmedowns and futons for years!

I love that green color!

Jessie said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I'm actually reading your blog while my high school students (I'm a Biology teacher) are listening to the morning announcements! They have definitely improved in quality. The TV production class puts on an impressive newscast, and the students then watch a national news program for high school students.

Jessie said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Oh! And in 2011 I plan to start (seriously) saving for a home (so sick of renting!)

Morgan said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

p.s. green is the best colour ever.

Hi Sarah! New reader here - great blog! In 2011, I plan to start a masters program.

Finishing nursing school!!!

Brooke said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

In 2011, I already have a long list (that I'm secretly already starting on...shhh don't tell) but the most exciting thing would be that I'll be graduating (finally) in May with a dual major in engineering (mechanical and electrical) Woop Woop!! Another just as exciting thing I'm planning is to start my own blog. I already have a ton of ideas for it that I've been scribbling on blank printer paper, so an organizer like this would be soooo helpful! :-)

lee said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I am planning on going on vacation. Somewhere. If I had a planner, maybe I'd have a better idea!

Jill said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Penne said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

In February 2011 my daughter and I will be running the Surf City Half Marathon together! We are training together long distance--she is currently a student at UCLA and I live in Tennessee. This will be her first half marathon and I am so excited that she wants to run it with me!

Jenny said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I'm planning to move in with my boyfriend in 2011. We'll have been together for over 2 years! Also planning to run Atlanta's Peachtree Road Race on July 4th and train for a half marathon. Big year ahead of me. :)

Chelsea said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Another "planning to start a family" here. And also give a talk at a professional conference (provided they want me, I suppose).

Susan said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

The high school speech team was in charge of giving the morning announcements (for practice?), so one of my friends was allllways on the intercom. Too funny!

What do I have planned for 2011? Big Sur and NYC Marathons! Fabulous.

Morgan @ Life After Bagels said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

OBVIOUSLY I would be interested in a fine iguana coloured planner such as the one you are offering :)

I have a super secret thing that I'm planning for in 2011 - can't announce it publicly yet, will message you ;)

Erin said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I plan (and hope!) to be ABD in my PhD program and run another half marathon or two (the full is going to have to wait until school is done).

Bree said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

My friend and I are addicted to planners like you. Thanks for posting all you do about your planners cause I'm definitly going to order one for next year (if I dont win it first). For 2011, I plan on moving to Seattle from Ohio after I get my daughter settled into college.

Rebekah said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I love different planners and have a hard time finding the perfect one...this one looks very good but won't know unless I win this contest ;)
A few things that I have planned for this year is to run a 30K race (Around the Bay) and to go on a week long trip with my wonderful husband (may be a cruise or an all inclusive).

Jackie said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Love the color of the planner! My goal for 2011 is to exercise regularly. Easier said than done!

Kristin said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I'm planning a wedding and hoping to start a part-time masters program. I can't wait for 2011!

Alicia at Poise in Parma said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

POST LOVE. LOVE the breakfast challenge (it's my favorite meal of the day but I always eat the same thing) and the 20/20 challenge (my house SERIOUSLY needs it).

My biggest plan for 2011 is a secret :) But I can definitely tell you that next year will include more races. I think you talked me into running the full 26.2 of the Cleveland Marathon!

Alison said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I can't help you with breakfast - I eat the same thing every morning & love it ;-)

2011 plan - Plan less! I am such a planner that sometimes I need to sit back, relax, and await to see what will happen!

Nina Coolidge said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I'm planning my second marathon this spring! Trying to fit training, grad school apps, a full time job and volunteer work all into my schedule definitely means I need a great planner!

Carly said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I am the same way with breakfast. Always some variation of oatmeal pancakes I have to buy a waffle iron, change it up a little bit.

In 2011 I hope to save up enough money to go to Europe for a month to visit Germany, Amsterdam, and maybe Ireland.

Elizabeth said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

In 2011 I'm planning on planning - instead of just blowing where the wind takes me. Attempt to impose some control on my life.

Valerie said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I am planning to have 2011 be my first multiple-marathon year. I'm registered for two right now. Possibly three!

Kary said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

In 2011, I plan to leave my job as an accountant and completely switch it up by taking the necessary pre-req classes and applying to a Psychology doctoral program. Also, I'll be moving from Texas to Pennsylvania, continuing the (slow) journey of losing weight and training for my first 5k! Whew!

Kate said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Lots going on in 2011 :) Applying to Grad school, training for a marathon, but mostly planning on planning a wedding!!

K said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I've planned a vacation for 2011 already. First vacation in years, actually. Very excited.

ps - hope I win because I have this planner on my birthday/Christmas list!! :)

Valerie @ City|Life|Eats said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

Would love to be entered in this giveaway. I have been feeling the need tomove on from my plain black planner pad (3+ yrs of having one, after 10 zears with another planner system), and an iguana colored space 24 would be so perfect.

As for 2011 - my goal is to take more vacation time that is actually relaxing :)

I think 2011 is going to be a very exciting and challenging year for me! I've got so many plans on the horizon, including my first half marathon and *fingers crossed* starting graduate school, which also leads to a potentially life changing move to a brand new city. I'm scared and excited at the same time, and I'm so thrilled to be meeting wonderful blog friends (like you!) to share the journey with!

Holy moly, 2010 has been the worst year of my life! For 2011, I want to get my life in order finally...get healthy, pursue my dream of writing and start living. Sounds broad, but 2010 brought me ill health, too much stress and no motivation to do anything I truly want to do. I can't wait for the fresh start the new year always brings.

Planning a wedding, looking for a new job (halfway across the country), and trying to buy a house. Definitely need the organization.

I wasn't going to enter this, but then saw your comments today about the main themes and thought I'd veer in another direction! Having read about your "breakfast challenge" I suggested to my other half that perhaps he could try it. He has a very strict and particular breakfast routine that makes me laugh. So my challenge for 2011 is to try and persuade the boyfriend to eat 7 different breakfasts!!!!

Samantha said...Best Blogger Tips[Reply to comment]Best Blogger Templates

I love this giveaway. For 2011 I'm definitely planning on getting an apartment that summer. Which is extremely exciting to have a place of your own. What's more exciting is decorating it! I'm so excited I cannot wait! :D

I am planning NOT to plan... I am the queen of "the plan"...
I planned to graduate nursing school...done
I planned to get a job in a level 1 trauma center neuro trauma unit...done
I planned to go back to school for my masters... done
I planned to do a marathon or a few... done
I planned to do some triathlons, done
I plan my patients trips to tests, lab work, etc.
I plan when to have QT my man, I plan when and what I am going o eat, I plan my outfits the night (or week) before wearing...
I even plan my runs around potty stops.

How about I stop making plans and just live.

Afterall, "life is what happens to us while we are busy making other plans".

Hi! I'm a new reader and found your blog from KathEats! I have a slight obsession with finding the perfect pens and planners so this one might be it! I think, above everything else I have planned for 2011, is learning how to be okay with not planning every aspect of my life!

I am planning the arrival of my first baby in 2011...more specifically, April 12, 2011 (give or take a couple of days!)!!!!!! We had the all important ultrasound yesterday and found out.....It's a BOY!!!! It also hit home yesterday, that, Holy Cr@p---I'm really pregnant! Yeah, yeah, I knew I was pregnant and all but I haven't felt him move yet and honestly, it just felt like I was getting fat! But seeing that bouncing baby boy moving all around yesterday made me realize that in about 20 more weeks, in the awesome year of 2011, I'll be a first time mama!!!!!!!! In the words of Joey from Blossom, "Woah!"

Wow Sarah, fun giveaway!! I must be your oldest blog reader, based on most comments! For 2011 I am planning on finding a full-time job that I love as much as the one I did for the last 18 years... freelancing is crazy stressful for me!
And to spend more time with my two young sons before they get any older. The trick will be making those two things happen at the same time... I need that planner!

I am planning to run further than 3.1 miles in 2011. More specifically a 10k. Hopefully a half marathon later in the year!

In 2011, I hope to find a new job and move to a new city. Hopefully, this planner will help me stay better organized and less frustrated with my current job than I was in 2010!

I plan on working yoga in more regularly...I love it and want it to be a main focus of my exercise plan...

I plan to keep running regularly. It was a struggle to get back into the habit, but now that I have I love it. I plan my day around it.

First let me just say that I perused your blog and gathered all the great tips I could. I liked your planner book layout so much, I tried to emulate the layout on a simple notebook. It may not be the fanciest but it works. And later I came across this giveaway, I really hope I can win one.
I am planning to finish my Masters by the end of 2011 or early 2012, this planner will help me get a hold of my life and keep everything in order.

I am planning a half-marathon PR. And...failing that, I'm hoping to get some writing stuff published. I'll take one or the other!
