A Day in the Life–July 21

It’s Monday, y’all!

Today I’m recounting a day of my life. Each day is a little different, depending on plans and such, but a lot of most workdays is redundantly similar. However, since Friday including baby things, I felt it would be a good one to document!

6:45 AM–Rise and Shine!

Typically, I’m up by 6:30, but since I had a doctor’s appointment on this morning, I got an extra 15 minutes of sleep.

7:22 AM–On My Way!

After taking a shower, getting dressed and throwing some chicken and stock in the crockpot for that night’s dinner, I’m in the car and on the road!

7:37 AM–Bookin’ It

After getting gas, I start listening to The Secrets of My Life by Caitlyn Jenner. Not too shabby so far.

7:46 AM–Smoothie Time!

Whenever I have a baby doctor appointment, I try to treat myself to an Angel Food Smoothie (without the added sugar) from Smoothie King.

8:38 AM–Time to Hear the Baby!

My appointment was for 9:15, but I always arrive early, just in case. The doctor was really happy with my progress, even though I had gained 5 pounds in 2 weeks (although some of that has to be the baby, right?). But my blood pressure was good, the baby’s heartbeat was strong, and she even kicked the doctor lol! I was able to make all of my doctor’s appointments through delivery–eek, it’s so soon!!!

10:15 AM–Back to Work

I arrive at work just in time to get on a conference call that I thought I would have to hand over to my coworker. This meant sitting on the phone for an hour until they finally got to my topic. Sigh.

11:45 AM–Lunch Time

I’m lucky enough to have a cafe on the campus of my work, which has delicious food. Today I scarfed down a veggie burger and a cup of Maryland crab soup. If only walking over there in the ridiculous heat had been better…

12:30-4:30 PM–Work Work Work

6:15 PM–Finally Home

I finally arrive home after being stuck in a TON of traffic. Luckily, all I needed to do to dinner was add chiles and chili powder, and the crockpot chicken taco recipe from Mix and Match Mama was complete! While C and I chowed down on tacos, we watched some Parks and Rec, including the episode that featured this moment:


7:30–Playtime for the Pups

We took the puppies outside for some playtime! Linus loved playing with his ring, but Emmy was must more interested in rolling around in some grass.

8:00–Chillin with Animal Crossing

C and I spent the rest of the evening in an incredibly exciting way–playing Animal Crossing next to each other on the couch.


After a long time, it was finally time for me to hit the hay.


Linking up with Julia and Liz for Day in the Life!

  1. Mmm Smoothie King!! I haven’t been there in forever and you have me wanting some big time! It’s weird, but I miss feeling Zoe kick inside and hearing that heartbeat was always the sweetest thing each visit!

  2. I love day in the life posts. Something is so fascinating about knowing what others did with the same time that you had yanno? Oh and your pups are truly the cutest!
