Post Its Galore!

in All Posts

I managed to fall asleep around 11:30 last night after popping an over-the-counter sleep aid.  I hardly ever take those types of medications, but I simply could NOT turn my brain off — it was racing.  I kept thinking about the Healthy Living Summit.  It’s just a few weeks away and I’m so excited about it!


I woke up feeling surprisingly rested, which is good because I have a long day of work ahead of me (sigh).


Breakfast was my favorite:


A big bowl of granola, blueberries, and Oikos Greek yogurt.  The Husband has decided he likes Oikos yogurt (he doesn’t like regular stuff!) and he has been eating it as fast as I can restock the fridge! 🙂


Operation Beautiful


Post It found out about Operation Beautiful and sent me a bunch of fun Post It notes to stick around town!


Operation Beautiful is bringing me great, great joy.  I think it’s making me a happier person! I like to scheme about where I’m going to place the notes and what they are going to say.  Its so simple, but so profound… I get a lot out of posting these notes!


Here’s a story from today’s Operation Beautiful post.  Be sure to check out the rest of the notes!


Stantalina wrote, "This is my first operation beautiful note.  I posted it on the mirror at work.  My call center is a very conservative place, so I assumed a couple people would see it, but then it would be taken right down by the custodians or managers.  I posted it 2 days ago, came in to work this morning and was pleasantly surprised to see that it was still there!"


Have a BEAUTIFUL Saturday!  Don’t forget to spread the Operation Beautiful love if you are out and about today!  Post a note, take a picture, and send it to Caitlin at!

    I can't get over how BIG Operatin Beautiful is becoming. You just never know where a little idea will end up, and how big it may become. 🙂 Keep up the awesomeness! 😀

    It's so inspiring how BIG OB has gotten, so quickly! You must be so proud of the movement!

    I hope you have a wonderfull weekend. Is'nt it soo hard to do nothing or think about nothing, when your supposed to. Like at bedtime or downtime. With all of our busy schedules we all need time management. Meditation would be a great way and time to verbaly renforce the message you are already visualy sending through the post it notes in operation beautiful. It may put you to sleep as well.

    Love You,

    As if Post It found out about Operation Beautiful! That's crazy!

    Your brekkie looks all kinds of delicious – simple and classic. Yum.

    My boyfriend always starts liking the healthy things I buy and then they're gone before I get to even have any! We have to buy double of everything, one for me, one for him! I don't mind. I'd rather him eat healthy things than junk!

    I love Operation Beautiful! I was starting to wonder when Post-it was going to catch on! Maybe they'll use it for an advertisement!

    speaking of OB-my mom sent me my boxes and i finally found this thing that changed my life, it's a pledge to your body. i'm hoping you'll check it out, give it some thought, and maybe give it a shout out! hope you are well!!

    OB is amazing! I need to be better at sticking things up wherever I go around town!

    Kind of a bummer the hubby found out about the greatness of Oikos! Now you have share and spend more! haha!
