A Day in the Life {August 2017}

Hi Friends!

Today I'm sharing what is always a fan favorite around blogland - A day in the life of us! I haven't done this in SO long, so it's long overdue.

I chose to document August 29th - it was a random Tuesday but Brayden had already started school but the girls had not.

5:30 - 5:45 - hit snooze until I finally get up (I snapped this pic the next day because I forgot the day before)

5:45 -6:30 - up and headed downstairs to workout - Miss Ella came down and watched about half way through :)


6:30-7:15 - Make coffee and do some blog reading/posting deals to my FB group


7:15 - 7:30 - Get Avery dressed and make sure everyone has their teeth brushed (the bigs get dressed on their own)

7:30-8:00 - Usually I make the kids breakfast but today I got some help from Brayden :) I got Brayden's lunch together and ate something quick for myself

8:00-8:20 - I go upstairs to get ready really quick (I shower at night and only wash my hair every other day so I of course need my dry shampoo!)- while I'm doing that, Brayden practices his reading

8:25 - Head to the bust stop and say bye to Brayden!

8:30-9:00 - Go on a scooter walk around the neighborhood

9:00-9:40 - I unload/load the dishwasher while the girls play then we have some time for stories

10:00 - We go for Avery's Meet the Teacher

10:30-11:15 - Head to Ikea to pick up our art cart!

11:30-2:30 - We go and see the new movie Leap with one of Ella's besties

2:30-3:30 - We play outside and wait for Brayden to come home from school

3:45-4:15 - Brayden is home and doing homework, I help when/if he needs me to

4:15 - 5:15 - Drive Brayden to church and parents had to stay this night so I was riding solo with the 3 ring circus

5:15 - On the way home, Avery falls asleep - I let her sleep on the couch while I start to make dinner, Ella helps me tonight, and it's an easy night - cheese enchiladas for the kids, chicken enchiladas for me.

6:00 - It was just me and the girls for dinner since the boys had baseball immediately after church - I of course finish eating in minutes while the girls are still going at it. I start to clean up while they finish eating

6:30 - 7:00 - give the girls a bath then get them ready for bed - gotta love the pj's Ella picked out. She is all about being cozy, literally every night she asks if we can snuggle on the couch and be cozy and she always needs to wear "cozy" pjs - she cracks me up!

7:00-7:20 - the girls hang out in my bed while I shower, I cuddle with them a little then it's time for bedtime stories


7:45 - Brayden & Rick get home from baseball and it's straight to the shower for Brayden

8:15 - I go in and lay with Brayden for a little then say good nite!

8:30-9:45 - Hang downstairs watching Bachelor in Paradise/looking up deals/blog

9:45-10:00 - Get ready for bed - wash face/brush teeth then check on all the kids and hit the hay! (ps. please don't tell me I'm the only one with all those emails?!?! LOL)

And then it starts all over again the next day :)

Don't forget this Thursday to join us in our monthly link up of Girl Chat! We're talking all about favorite Fall recipes!!

  1. You are so cute and I love getting a glimpse into your day! How precious that Brayden made breakfast and love those Miss matched jammies! Busy mama for sure!

  2. Whew! What a day. I love that your school seems to start later than the ones around here. I know they get out before 3:00 So I am pretty sure they have to arrive around 7:45 YUCK! #reasonswehomeschool #kidding #notkidding. I am always SO amazed how much can get packed into one day. It is CRAZY!

  3. These are my all time favorite posts! I love your days! You are a busy Mama and get so much done. I loved this post!

  4. Ok gah at the 15,000 emails! lol. Nice to see a peek at your day!

  5. Your little one is doing reclined bound butterfly in her sleep and I LOVE IT! lol I'm a yoga nut, and my instructor always says that our bodies naturally want to do yoga, and you can see it most evidently in kids. My littlest does that pose a lot, too! So cute.

  6. There are never enough hours in a day, right?! They sure keep you busy mama. I love how you get some night time snuggles in and I love your headboard by the way! Beautifully Candid

  7. Full busy day and I always love to know when people squeeze in blogging! Bachelor in paradise is a train wreck I cannot stop watching ;).

  8. I LOVE these posts!! And Lizziiiieeee I have anxiety just looking at your emails!!!! Brian has around 30k right now on his phone and I can't even look at it. I would go insane if I had to see that every day! Lol.

  9. Such a fun, busy day! I still can't work out that early. I've tried since we started waking up earlier for school, but I just can't find the energy!
