I love day in the life posts. I mean that in the most non-stalkerish way possible. There’s something interesting about seeing how other people go about their days. Sometimes, it leaves me in awe – like, how do some of y’all fit everything in one day? We got some Superwomen bloggers out there!
So, I’m finally jumping on the “day in the life” train. Here was how my Wednesday went down:
6:50 AM – My alarm clock is set for 7:00, but I am awakened by the sound of tiny feet sprinting across my house and jumping on walls. Thanks, cats…
7:00 – 7:30 AM – I stumble out of my room into the kitchen to fix breakfast (Shakeology) and read blogs while trying to wake up and remember which year it is. I tell ya, waking up is a hard process for me.
7:30 – 7:45 AM – Get ready for work: wash face, brush teeth, do hair, try to look alive and presentable, get dressed.
7:47 AM – Leave for work
8:04 AM – Get to work. After catching up with coworkers, it’s time to hit the e-mails and begin the day’s work – I mean, fun : )
11:45 AM – 12:10 PM – Make/eat lunch while answering e-mails. Since, I had some errands to run during my lunch break, I made my actual meal into a working lunch.
1:00 – 2:00 PM - My lunch break. I had to run to Bed, Bath and Beyond to get a shower gift for my friend. During this trip, I realized that BB&B is my spirit store. It just gets me.
Do both of these signs just not completely sum up my life?
After BB&B, I walked next door to Petsmart to get Oliver and Luna some food and treats. I can’t go in there and not stop to visit with the kittens up for adoption. I saw this sweet girl who only has one eye like my Luna. It took every ounce of my self-control to not walk out of there with her.
3:30 PM - Snack time! (apple)
5:00 PM - Get me outta here! Done with work for the day.
5:15 – 5:30 PM – Get home and feed my cats. I also give them a few new toys. Oliver proceeds to run around the house growling with his new toy in his mouth. Someone needs a lesson on sharing. I check my mail and see the Popsugar box from Erin at HerHeartlandSoul has arrived. It was filled with goodies like this scarf:
5:30 – 6:05 PM – Do a few core workout videos on Youtube.
6:05 – 6:30 PM – Try to salvage whatever makeup I have left on and make my hair look not as dirty. Change into cuter clothes.
6:45 PM - Walk over to my friend/neighbor’s house so we can ride together to our friend’s bridal shower.
7:00 – 9:30 PM – Bridal shower for my friend, Robyn. Robyn is actually marrying one of my childhood best friends, Will. The shower was thrown by the girls in our small group at church. It was a dessert party, so my dinner consisted of pumpkin cheesecake cupcake and some chocolate/caramel/oatmeal gooey bar. No complaints here. I would have taken a picture, but I’m still kinda new to the small group and haven’t shown my weirdo blogger side yet. I did manage to take a picture of a cute craft idea we did.
Since this will be Robyn and Will’s first Christmas together as a married couple, we all made ornaments to help jump start them with their Christmas decoration collection. Even though my craft skills are severely lacking, I thought this was a really unique and thoughtful bridal shower idea.
9:45 – 10:00 PM – Get home, take a quick shower, play with the cats.
10:00 – 11:00 PM – Watch Nashville while working on this blog post.
11:15 PM – Brush teeth and time for bed!
Phew! That was a day. Normally, I like to be in bed closer to 10, but Wednesday nights I get a little crazy and stay up til 11 to watch Nashville. Party over here!

Are you a crafty person or do you just look at Pinterest in a mixed state of confusion and awe (like me)?
