As previously announced, I am a part of the new momAgenda Council of Media Moms. One of the perks is that I got a lovely new Desktop Agenda. Now as I have already admitted (and admitting you have a problem is the first step), I have a serious addiction for notepads and planners. I received a momAgenda 2011-2012 Desktop in Fuchsia. Yes, of course… I had to have a form of pink. 🙂

This is by far the nicest planner that I have had. The cover is not leather, but it is a nice sturdy vinyl that is very easy to clean if grubby little hands got a hold of it. I’m a little bummed that I cannot actively use it yet since it starts up in August 2011. However, there are sections for addresses and notes, and other useful info that I can start using now. Actually do have items that I can fill in past August. Yes, already!

As you also know about me, I am an avid Google Calendar user. My calendar is electronic and goes everywhere with me via devices. But, if you think about it… that might not be all good. So, it will be nice to have a backup in writing just in case the internet breaks down! Plus, I am CONSTANTLY jotting down notes ALL.THE.TIME. And I try to stay out of the sticky note business now, because I lose them, or end up with piles of them all over the place. 🙂

The pages are thick and attractive.  There are sections in the back for holidays, book lists, movie lists, music, and more.

Whenever I get a nice book like this, I only write in it in pencil because I do not want to mess it up. Is that weird? LOL! It’s just so nice! I don’t want to have to scratch things out. This way I can erase. 🙂

The engraving is beautiful. My name is in the right hand corner of the front cover, as seen below.

As mentioned in the specs, it has a really neat momEssentials pamphlet in the back. In here is where you input information like addresses, birthdays, anniversaries, and medical information.

I LOVE my momEssentials desktop and I look forward to it keeping me in line. 🙂 If you would like your own, visit to pick something out. Use the discount code BLOGMOM to get FREE shipping for orders over $45.
