This is really a good base for any kind of quesadilla. For my husband I often use the same mechanics, but make it a pizza quesadilla with pizza sauce, cheese, and pepperoni.

When I was in elementary and grade school I absolutely loved taking the trip to get school supplies in the fall and picking out my planner for the year. I loved having a pretty planner to put all my school assignments in. It kept me organized and on track. I kept up with my planner obsession in college, but after graduation I didn't get a planner again...until now!
Truthfully, prior to this year I hadn't felt the need to have a planner anymore. But right now with juggling familiar obligations, work, my blog, the summer theater festival I co-produce, the organization I am on the board of, my social life, and other extracurricular activities, a planner is highly necessary.
For Christmas Hubs bought me a Living Well Planner. Even having only been using it for a short time I'm already seeing the positive impact of being back in the planner life. Here's how using a planner again has helped my life:
Remember that it is not necessarily the paperwork and data that is causing so much stress; rather, it is our inability to process it all. Simplify the process, and you just might find you've solved the problem.
Seeing my life at a glance. While I love my Google Calendar, it doesn't allow me to see EVERYTHING all at once - work events, gym classes, blog post schedule, meal plan, etc. My planner is allowing me to really see how all my responsibilities relate, from when I have a deadline to what I'm cooking for dinner. This is helping me make better planning decisions.
Blog planning. Having the calendar in front of me I now schedule out posts to have at least one new blog post a week. Prior to this I didn't really think about my publishing schedule with the month in mind. I'd write as ideas came to me and post right away. So I could have a week with five posts, and then nothing else for weeks. With the planner I am now spacing out posts, functioning with a real editorial calendar.
Anxiety Relief. Now that I am using my planner when something comes to mind that needs to be done I can look at my schedule as a whole, at a glance, and write down when I plan to tackle the task. I've had much less anxiety and stress being able to plan to work on things, rather than just having all my to-dos floating around in my head and feeling like I had to do everything right away.
If you're in the market for a planner Amazon has some great ones HERE* at all price ranges.
Do you use a planner? How does it help your life?

I feel like I see a lot more commercials for children's toys now that I'm a parent. I believe that is a combination of watching children's programming more often, and actually paying attention to toy commercials now that I have a child. There are some toys that seem downright strange to me.
Lalaloopsy Potty Surprise
"Lalaloopsy Potty Surprise! Feed her food before your eyes! Put her on the potty. Look inside. What will you get? Guess your prize! Button, Flower, Hear, Star. Potty Surprise!"
I understand that kids like surprises. But is the best way to distribute those surprises in a toilet? Keeping with the theme of bodily functions:
Kids like boogers I suppose. As an adult, this looks disgusting. On a similar note:
Pop The Pig
I can understand the excitement of not knowing when the surprise event is going to occur, but these things are just strange lol. Why must body parts explode?!
This is a set of scented toys that kids are instructed to stack together in different ways to create different aromas. Doesn't sound fun to me, but perhaps it will spark many future perfume creators?
