Oh Franklin Covey, I'm Not Ready to Break Up


I was going through my planner the other day. Because really? Isn't carrying a planner so 90s? I received mine as a gift when I graduated from college in 1997. It is real leather, a Franklin Covey and I LOVED it. I felt so grown up carrying it. Now, the nameplate reads my maiden name, the leather is worn off and faded, not to mention super dated. I admit, I'm still not totally ready to toss it. I know - one step away from HOARDER! I took a picture of it for my friend because she didn't believe that I still had it!
I came across a list of baby names I started (literally) in 1997 when I got it. I added to it along the years and last year, once we found out we were having a girl, we got a little more serious about it the list.

Girl Names:

Claire
Paige
Eva
Eden
Eve
Gillian/Jillian
Kate
Eleanor
Gabriela
Grace
Natalia
Caroline
Christelle
Reagan
Helena
Lauren
Evangeline
Addison
Violet
Ruby
Elyse
Leila
Lily
Avery

Boy Names:

Nathaniel
Cole
Lucas
Brandt
Brennan
William (Will)

I so wanted to leave some of the names off as I typed them out, but I didn't. There are names on there I clearly couldn't have chosen - we now have a niece named Clare. I have a good friend with a daughter named Addison. And really, would I actually name my daughter Evangeline? Probably not.

Do YOU still have a planner? Do you use it? What funny stuff is in yours?

thanks for finding my blog and following along. i am always looking for more friends who blog and i think you'll fit right in. you are right, i have THE most amazing and eclectic group of friends that bend over backwards for me. it's completely humbling and inspiring. i could never use a planner for more than a month. i kept losing interest. however, my friend and i were talking about baby names today. i said i always loved the name of my first cabbage patch kid, francis patience. i would call her frankie =)
