Day in our Life

Excited to be joining Blonde Ambition for this fun linkup today!

My day started around 3:27am when I woke up out of a dead sleep, to a completely DEAD LEG. I don't know what woke up me or why my ENTIRE (i'm talking hip to toes) leg was completely asleep, but it happened and it was awful. I'm one of those people who doesn't like to touch or move the 'asleep' body part until after it has its cirrculation back, it freaks me out. So I sat in bed for a good 10 minutes before I realized I wasn't going to have to go get it amputated. I'm not entirely sure how it happened, since I was asleep on my back & my legs were out straight but I would prefer it to never happen again.
 
 
My alarm went off at 5:30am and I snoozed it until 5:48am until I decided it was really time to get up if I planned to get a workout in. So I rolled both my working legs out of my perfectly comfortable bed and threw my sneakers on.

I was on the ellipcial for about 40 minutes when I saw the door opening and this girl walked through the door (with dad in tow, she doesn't just climb out of her crib and take strolls around the house, she's only one! ). 
(Sorry it's so blurry, I was trying not to break my stride on the elliptical while snapping photos)

After a few texts with my best friend showing off that we both woke up to work out, I was done with my hour of cardio and off to my Keurig. Yes, that is the worlds biggest cup & its delightful! 


Last night, as I was filling the bathtub to wash Abigail down, I realzied that she hadn't pooped all day... and just KNEW that if I put her in the tub, it was going to happen. And no part of me was interested in cleaning up a poop-filled tub last night, so we skipped the bath & she got one this morning :)

By 7:34am (only running 9 minutes behind!!), I was showered, clothed, made up and walking out the door with my girl & another round of caffeine. - Side note: it was PJ day at school ;)

Billy always loads A into the car while I load all 17 bags I take, plus myself and my coffee cup. On this particular morning, Abigail decided that she wanted no part of being strapped into her car seat and threw the worlds biggest hissy fit. Don't worry baby, one day you'll read this and laugh, just like we laughed at you this morning. #keepingitreal

After our 20 minute drive to daycare, I dropped her off for breakfast and to hang out with all of her friends for the day :)

I drove myself to work, got out of the car, stared at the building, debated whether or not I was actually going to go in (kidding, kind of) and was getting myself settled into my desk by 8:30am (OR if you are my boss and are reading this, it was 8am SHARP!). I made myself a turkey sausage, egg, and chesse English Muffin with a plum on the side and browsed all of the news on the web for a few minutes before busting out my daily planning sheets that I made to keep myself nice and organized. I jotted down all of the things that I needed/wanted to get accomplished for the day and got to work.

 
From about 9-12pm things get a little boring. I'm busy working and this is pretty much my view, with an occasional trip to the bathroom here and there.
 
Billy closes on Thursday nights, which means when I leave the house in the morning, I won't see him again until the next day. It stinks, so we try to go to lunch together on Thursdays as much as possible. Today was no different. He picked me up for lunch around 12:30pm and we headed off to eat our weight in chips & queso at Tijuana Flats. 

 
3:30pm hit and I had to stop my forehead from hitting my keyboard, so I got up and made myself a cup of tea. If you are keeping track, that's numero three for the day. I'm also so delierious at this point, I drew myself a sticky note just to remind me of how tired I am. #help
This is the point of the day in Florida where the sky turns black and the end of the world appears to be rearing its ugly head outside. I hope and pray that this only lasts for the next hour and a half because picking a toddler up from daycare in the pouring rain is a receipe for a drowned rat diaster.
 
  Yay! It's 4:45pm 5pm! 
I took the short drive to Abigail's school & we took stoplight selfies on the way home ;) 

We always stop at the mailbox (we don't have one in front of our house, it's a community one) and today it was an extra fun mail day! We got this package that I ordered from IWYP by: Whitney Ellen and it was shiney & perfect! More to come on this later.  

Abigail played while I got the house cleaned up & her dinner together. We just got these fun magnetic letters that she loves to pull off & push underneath the fridge. 
 
My favorite area of my kitchen, especially when it's clean ;)

Abigail goes to bed freakishly early. Like 6:30pm early. Most of the time I'm super bummed at her early bedtime because I want her to stay up and play with me but tonight, I was thankful to get a little mama time in after she went down. 
In this case, mama time means ice cream for dinner & pretty little liars on dvr. 

The couch is where I'll be for the rest of the night. 


& there is a look at a day in our lives! 
Hope you enjoyed it! 
XOXO
