A Day in the Life {In Pictures}


I’ve had this post hanging out in my drafts for a little while now. I think I first saw the idea of a post like this come up on BlogHer in one of their e-mails about post ideas.

Out in the blogosphere, they have gained in popularity, and last week I saw one of my most favorite bloggers post her “day in the life”, I loved it so much, I knew I was ready to share mine:



I’ve been asked on more than one occasion “how do you do it?”—work full time, workout, raise a child, keep the house in order, etc. etc. So I thought the idea of a day in the life post would be fun! Two weeks ago, I picked a day, and took a picture each hour or so of what I was doing at that moment, and thought I’d share it with you today:

5:00 am –


Morning coffee

6:00 am –


Gym Session

7:15 am –


Breakfast (while making breakfast nag the child to get ready for school and eat her breakfast)

8:30 am –


Drop the child off at school


8:45 am – 5:00 pm


This is how the day is spent– at my desk.

10:00 am –


I snack at my desk

12:30 pm –


I eat lunch at my desk

3:00 pm –


I snack at my desk some more

5:00 pm –


I pick up the mini-me from her Nana’s (that’s where she goes after school) – she looks so thrilled to be home, right?! lol

5:15 pm –

6:00 pm –


We walk the crazy pug

6:30 pm –


Make dinner

7:00 pm – 9:00pm –

I don’t have a picture, but in that time we have dinner, clean up, chat about our day. I check homework. Get comfy in our sweaties and cuddle. Watch a little “boob tube”, etc.

And then, it’s time for bed:


We head to bed and get ready to get up and do it all over again the next day. :)

      Honestly– even if I don’t go to the gym I try to get up early just to enjoy the way the house is all quiet, and the sky is still dark, etc. I drink my coffee, read blogs, etc. Oh it’s so so nice! Takes me back to my early 20’s when I had the house alllllllll to myself. :)
