Fave Freebies Friday

So I've been doing some brainstorming this week and I think I've come up with a better posting schedule! Although, to be fair, anything would be better than my current routine of posting whenever inspiration strikes and ignoring my blog the rest of the time. So here's what I've come up with!

To keep myself disciplined, I'm going to write a blog post every Friday. I'm still toying with my schedule, so I may end up changing things around a bit before I find my sweet spot. For now, this is what you can expect!

The first Friday of every month, I'm going to write a list post. For example, 5 Lies About Formula Feeding (And 5 Awesome Benefits!) is a list post!

The second Friday of every month (which is this post!) I'm going to write a Fave Freebies Friday post! Whether it's a free printout, a free activity, or maybe even a few giveaways, the fourth Friday will be all about free! I think I'm most excited about this monthly post!

The third Friday of every month, I'm going to write about homemaking. Homemaking is a pretty broad category, but I like that! These posts will range from motherhood, being a wife, home decór, recipes, diys, baby advice, etc. I wanted this category to be open ended, so "homemaking" is as specific as I can make it.

The fourth Friday of every month, I'll write about something deployment or military related. I'll be sharing my monthly mini celebrations, what deployment is teaching me, or maybe the care packages I send. This weekly post will change once Auston is back home, but since deployment is now a big part of my life, I figured it needed its own monthly post.

Eventually I'd like to write more than just once a week, but between the baby, the deployed husband, and my insanely packed summer (I planned a lot of trips to keep me busy while Auston's away!) I just can't do more than one post per week. So that's what I'm committing to!

Phew, okay, I've finished my preamble, now it's time for the fun stuff!... err, the free stuff!

To start off my very first Fave Freebies Friday, this month's freebie , I've reached out to Megan at Small Town Charm and she's given me the go ahead to share this swoon worthy print with you... for F R E E !

That lettering, y'all! I'm dying over here!

Right now I'm re-doing my laundry room - think dark grey, crisp, clean white, a few rustic-y accents - and this print is for sure going up in there! There are few things that could possibly make me want to do laundry, but a pretty picture with an encouraging quote will definitely make doing this chore a little cheerier.

You guys should check out the other prints at Small Town Charm while you're at it. Megan's calligraphy prints aren't just beautiful, they're also super affordable which I am all about (hello, enlisted Army salary!). Or, you could brighten your Insta feed and follower her Instagram.

If you use this print in your house, send me a picture! I'd love to see it up somewhere while I wait for my laundry room to be done!

Until next Friday, happy blogging!


  1. Thanks for the schedule. I'm always reworking mine. Shared on G+

  2. I absolutely love how you're planning your posts out! It's so awesome to know that I will be able to come to your site and know exactly what I'll be getting every week, but with a different twist! This is such a great idea, and I really need to implement something like this, too! Thank you so much for giving me the motivation to plan better! I owe you one ;)


    1. Thank you! I'm definitely doing it to keep myself regimented. I can get too lax or too crazy with posts. This will help me focus(:

  3. i love the discipline! I need to be better about the scheduling too! thanks for sharing! love the freebie too!
