Today we're sharing mambi Design Team member Mary-Ann Maldonado's unique spin on a 'BACK TO SCHOOL' spread. For Mary-Ann, these pages were her way to plan out what her son's first week back to school means FOR HER: well-deserved free time, acupuncture appointments, and coffee dates, to name a few. Not to mention all the colors that make Mary-Ann happy. LOVE LOVE LOVE!

About these pages, Mary-Ann writes:
"Since I recently planned out my son's first week of school using the Weekly Planner Pad, it was time I got busy with MY first week of his going back to school. Time for a bit of pampering! A spa day with my chums, lunch date and coffee with other pals...just ignore the 'nap, nap, nap' listed for after church on Sunday!"
"I started this spread with a color combo. I decided on a very girly palette: just what a mom who stayed home all summer with a boy and his pals needs. This spread is about ME: my colors, my plans, my favorites. Absolutely NO ONE ELSE! I deserve this, right? So do you! Don't forget to tag #TheHappyPlanner on IG so we can all see what you have been doing to keep yourself & your family organized.
A couple of other things to note: (1) Many of you have been asking on Instagram and Facebook what pens I am using. I love love love the Paper Mate Flair pens. They come in a variety of colors, and do not bleed through my planner pages or run. (2) I made my own paperclips with cardstock and stickers!"
