Hello to you all and happy Wednesday! It’s been a little while since I’ve done a Day in the Life post, so I figured today would be a fun opportunity to do a little of that along with some WIAW (thanks for hosting, Jenn!). So let’s get to it!
5:15am – First alarm goes off. Snooze, of course.
5:45am – Hear the alarm going off again…definitely don’t remember hitting snooze another time. Roll out of bed, toss on workout clothes, put in contacts, then head to the basement.
5:50am – Workout time! Today’s workout was T25 Gamma (Rip’T Circuit), which I always love because it’s all upper body…and I just love me some upper body workouts!
6:25am – Chug some water, hop in the shower, brush teeth, do makeup and hair, get dressed.
7:10am – I’m greeted by Lucas, who is dressed and ready for the day thanks to his daddy. He is always SO happy and chipper in the morning…not quite sure where he gets that one from, but we love it.
7:25am – Head to the kitchen to round up the “stuff” for the day: Lucas’s breakfast and lunch, my lunch, my coffee, and my breakfast. I blend up my shake in the blender and Lucas is ecstatic. The child LOVES this contraption…and I think he gets equally excited because he knows I’m going to give him a bite or two of peanut butter.
7:45am – Out the door! I sip on my chocolate peanut butter Shakeology as I’m driving. It’s so good.
8:05am – Arrive at the sitter’s house, but Lucas is way more interested in his laptop and tells me “No” when I ask him if he’s ready to go see his buddy. Yes, we have learned “no” over here, and it doesn’t even bother me (yet) because it sounds SO adorable when he says it (<– I know that will come back to bite me soon enough…).
8:15am – Get to work, do the usual morning routine of checking emails and tickets, and finish up breakfast and coffee.
9:00am – Meeting with my boss. A very good meeting, and got my morning started off on the right foot!
11:00am – My 2nd meeting for the day. Luckily, it’s a quick one and we’re done in about a half hour.
11:45am – I start to get a little hungry but since I know I need to head out shortly on lunch, I snack on some Almond Nut-Thins + peanut butter to tide me over a bit.
12:00pm – Run out to the post office to mail out some stuff, stop quick at the bank, then get back to work in about 20 minutes. Since I still have time left and it’s absolutely gorgeous out, I take a quick 20ish minute walk around our building.
1:15pm – Time to get back to work and break into my lunch. I prepped a couple of salads on Sunday and was super grateful for taking the time (I’d been slacking a bit the past couple of weeks) because it was quite delicious. Lots of veggies, dried cranberries, feta, grilled chicken, and honey cornbread croutons.
Work, work, work!
2:30pm – I’m craving a little something sweet so I grab the orange I remembered I threw last minute into my lunchbox that morning. Oranges have been SO good lately, don’t you guys agree??
3:30pm – Done with work for the day! Time to go pick up my little man.
3:40pm – Arrive at the sitter’s house. He’s having a blast but gets so excited when he sees me. My heart melts. :) Talk a bit about his day with his sitter and then we’re off.
3:50pm – Lucas and I make our way on home, but on the way, I make a drive-by past our lot to see what kind of progress they’re making. As of right now, the foundation is IN! Framing is set to start later this week, too, so things are moving right along. YAY!
4:00pm – I almost forget that we need to make a quick stop at the grocery store for tonight’s dinner and a few other things! Realized it just in time, so we head there, grab what we need, then make our way home. Lucas says “Hi” to just about everyone we pass by.
4:25pm – We’re home, finally! I do the usual routine of unpacking lunches, putting other stuff from the day away, and/or whatever dishes were cleaned in the sink to be put away. Then Lucas and I play with some cars (with Cody, too!) while we wait for daddy to get home.
*The pic above is from Monday, but same thing happened Tuesday too ;)
5:00pm – Jay is home! We chat a bit about our day and get some things ready for dinner and our dinner guests.
5:30pm – Grandma and papa arrive! Because Jay and I had a late softball game that night, we asked my mom if she’d be able to watch Lucas. And since my dad would be coming to the game with us as well, they drove up together and we planned dinner. Win, win!
6:00pm – Time for dinner. We keep things simple and have cheeseburgers on the grill, along with some pasta salad that my mom brought over. All on paper plates too, to make clean up that much quicker. Heck. Yes.
We all hang out for a while after dinner and play with Lucas, who is forever keeping us entertained.
7:15pm – Jay, my dad, and myself all get ready to head out to our softball game. It’s a later one tonight (7:45pm) so while I’m bummed to miss bedtime with Lucas, I’m super thankful my mom is available to jump in and help.
7:45pm – Time to play some softball!
We had an awesome game, we won 33-10, and I ended up getting 5 hits during the night, including one that went over the left center fielder. I guess all those workouts are paying off?
9:15pm – Game is over. We hang out for a few minutes but not too long since it’s late, I need to pee, and I’m hungry.
9:30pm – Arrive back home. Get the scoop on Lucas (he went to bed fine, didn’t last too late as I expected), then my mom and dad head home. I dig into some strawberry greek yogurt covered pretzels from NatureBox that are freakin’ DELICIOUS.
I think I could have easily eaten the whole bag. Luckily, I kept that in check a bit…and by a bit, I mean maybe I ate half.
9:45pm – Change out of dirty uniform, hang out on the couch for a little while with Jay and chat about a few different things before I realize what time it really is. Thankfully, I’m working from home tomorrow (likely today if you’re reading it on Wednesday) so I don’t have to worry about packing lunches and all that jazz.
10:15pm – Come in to the computer to type up this post. And now that I’m done, I’m getting ready for bed and getting some SLEEP. I’m pooped!
Have a great Wednesday, everyone!
