A Day in the Life

If you're anything like me, you'll enjoy today's post! These are my favorite type of posts, and I know one day I'll look back at our typical day and know they were the absolute best days.

Anyway, I chose Tuesday 3/13/18 to document - it went something like this

5:40am - wake up, roll out of bed, bathroom and get workout clothes on

5:50-6:20am - work out - it's so hard to do it first thing but I just don't have time later in the day and I can't bring myself to workout at night

6:20-7:25am - Make coffee and work on my FB group, posting deals - I love this quiet time

7:25-7:40am - Get the kids up, tell them to get ready  (I still help Avery a little with brushing her teeth)

7:45-8:20am - breakfast for the kids which is easy today with cereal and fruit. I eat a homemade bagel and a cutie, then I unload the dishwasher.

8:25am - walk Brayden to the bus stop - I love that he still gives me a hug and a kiss and screams " I LOVE YOU" as he gets on - I know these days are probably going to end soon 😢

8:27-8:45am - get ready super quick (I shower at night so today was just a quick run through my hair with my curling wand and a little makeup

9:00am - drop Avery at preschool 

9:15-9:45am - Ella has Speech at Brayden's school. I always hope we'll see him but we never do

9:45-11:30am - Ella and I run errands. We go to Old Navy, the Rack, DSW and stop in a local painting place to check it out for a future visit

11:30am - pick Avery up from preschool

12-1pm - make the girls lunch, make myself lunch, load the dishwasher and clean up the kitchen

(one of my favorite lunches - pita crackers from Trader Joes, and a mix of avacado/tomatoes/feta with a little olive oil)

1-3pm - we go to the library for the fun STEM class. The teacher reads some fun St. Patricks books then it's on to the activities and a snack. On the way to the library it was snowing and the girls enjoyed catching some flakes

3:10-3:30 - Get Brayden from the bus stop, make him a snack and help him with homework if needed

3:30-4:15 - I let the kids have down time, I do some more cleaning up and work on blogging/FB group

4:15-4:45 - We drive Brayden to religious education

4:45-5 - I prep dinner, which was super easy this night. 

5-5:20 - Play with the girls a little while dinner cooks

5:45-6:40 - Rick comes home with Brayden, we all eat dinner, then clean it all up

6:40-7:30 - We spend some time playing together and the kids are having a blast with the magnatiles. We had so much fun creating new things. Avery wanted to bust out the play doh. Brayden also took his cuts in the garage

7:45-8:30 - Start bedtime. The kids are still showering/bathing every other night and tonight was an off night. We read each of them a book (or several) and I lay with each of them for a few minutes.

(forgot to get a pic with Brayden, whoops)

8:30-9:45 - Hang out on the couch with Rick, watch some shows, read some blogs, work on my FB group and browse the internet. I have a hard time just sitting and watching tv :)

9:45 - 10:15 - Get ready for bed, wash face, brush teeth and watch a few minutes of E! News before I fall asleep

And there you have it, our not so special, ordinary, but fun day!

  1. I love this post. What fun!!! I have never been here before but so thankful you were my blog neighbor today at Sarah's. Love your table by the way. I am trying to find one or make one like this for our house! Have a great week!

  2. That’s the same time I get up. So so love these posts! Way to get moving on the workout early in the morn! Have a super day!

  3. I love that you are motivated to wake up that early. I know if I could get my act together to wake up earlier i'd be in better shape, but unfortunately I don't see that happening any time soon :( Sierra~Beautifully Candid

  4. Way to go on the early morning workout! I'm an evening work-outer! ha Love these posts!

  5. You girls and your early rising! Sheesh, I wish I could do that! I need to make that one of my goals for next year. I always sleep to the last possible second. Haha. You pack so much in to your day! Us mommas are always going going going!

  6. I love it. These are my favorite posts and something I need to do again.

  7. I'm impressed! I simply can not work out when I wake up. I'm up at 6 with Dylan, but I just don't have the energy! I love day in the life posts!

  8. It is so impressive how you work out in the morning! Do you have any favourite music to pump you up? Only curious as I am going to attempt to try to get fit starting very soon and am thinking having some good music could be a motivator! :) Your kids have also inspired me that I need to stick my tongue out more to catch snowflakes when it snows ;) Joanne (Europafox Blog)

  9. I love that Brayden still yells that he loves you - SO SWEET!

  10. Ahhh! I loved this and have been meaning to read through it since you posted it last week! Per usual, you inspire me to do more with my kiddos! I really, really want to wake up earlier to get in workouts and blog. How do you convince yourself to do it? I'll set my alarm and then I'm all, "Nah." LOL! I still go to the gym, but it's later in the morning. Teach me your ways!!!!
