Day in the life...

This post took me a little longer to write but it's done!  I'm excited to start doing these every year and see how life changes.  Life is going full force and feels like it's flying by faster each year.  It's all about capturing the memories on here.  :)

Ok, here it goes!
~My day starts off with the alarm going off at 5:45am on my husband's phone.  He most graciously snoozes it until 6:00am at my grumbled request.  (Am I a lucky girl or what?!)  I begrudgingly climb out of bed and into the shower.  I am so not a morning person.  I rush to get ready and try to make a lunch with no food in the pantry, and I try to be out of the house by 6:40am.

~I got to work at bright and early time of 7:00am.  Since it is the Tuesday after a three day weekend (Labor day) I am greeted with 4 days of closeouts on my desk.  (Can you even see my desk?)

 ~After paperwork, reports, phones calls and answering emails I took a short break to snap a pic of my new shoes I scored at Macy's for $17!  Oh ya, I get to wear jeans to work everyday if I want.  Woohoo! Definitely a change from the Houston office.

 ~This particular day I got a fun surprise.  Ryan was out visiting a customer and stopped by my office to take me out to lunch.  I was so glad since I didn't really bring any food with me.  (My boss went with us as well for a little goodbye lunch since it was his last week before he moved on to another position.)  This rarely happens anymore.  We used to have lunch together everyday when we worked in Houston.  It's been a tough transition driving to work by myself and leaving Ryan at home to work.

~I've finally caught up on most of the paperwork and emails.  I know when I can see my desk again it's been a successful day.

~Another perk to having my husband work for the same company as me is our IM system.  I get to check in on him from time to time through the day.  I always send him a quick IM to let him know I'm leaving for the day usually around 3:30pm.

~Locking up shop and calling it a day before 5pm is definitely one of the things I love about my job.

I just wanted to record what the temperature was like on the day after Labor Day.  (Ignore the dusty dash.)

~I get home around 3:50pm and run upstairs to greet my hard at work husband in his office.  I am so jealous that he gets to work in mesh shorts and a t-shirt!

 ~After a short run down of each other's day I head downstairs for a quick bite to eat and crash on the couch to catch up on a DVRed show.  I'm always STARVING after work for whatever reason.

~Since today is Tuesday it means I have my golf league tonight.  So I have to hurry and get ready to play golf with my cousin (who is my partner).  I decide that I'm not feeling like dressing up much and put on some comfy clothes.  I can get a little cool in the evenings now so I threw on some sweats.  I love that our golf course is so laxed on clothing attire.  :)

~I leave the house a little early around 4:45pm so that I can stop off and get gas on the Missouri side since it's so much cheaper then Kansas gas.  I just wanted to document the price of gas now so I can look back on how it changes through the years.

~Kathy & I tee off at 5:30pm and hit 9 holes of golf.  I'm so bad it's laughable.  This is my first year to really play golf so we can definitely say it's a learning year.

~This night was particularly fun because it was game night in the league.  We played golf bingo.  As you can see, Kathy & I had all the bad golf moves covered.  Ha!  In fact we won!

~I got home around 8:30pm and jumped straight into the shower.  Afterwards, I climbed into bed to try and catch up on some reading and had myself a little snack.  I was trying to finish that book before the movie came out but that didn't happen.  And Caramel Corns are the best snack!

~And finally, I check in on the ol' blog and catch up on reading everyone's posts.  I decide I'm too tired that night to attempt a post of my own.  I snuggle up to the hubs and call it a night sometime after 10:00pm.  I drift off the sleep to the faint sound of the TV Ryan is watching before he turns in for the night.

There we go!  I'm first official day in the life post!  That was way fun.  Have you guys done one?  If so link it the comments to I can read it too.  It's so interesting to see what other people's days look like.  Mine can look different every night depending on the day but it usually involves me running around somewhere.  I love those nights when I can just cuddle with the hubs and the kitties on the couch watching our favorite shows.


  1. Love it! And I ALSO love love love that I got to see you all Saturday. Next time I'll leave Belle at home and we'll be able to chat more and easily!

  2. I so need to do this! LB is sick right now so my day is way funky but once he gets better I'll join in :)
    And I love caramel corn!! Did you not eat dinner?
    Also, you look awesome! Have you been running again?

  3. How fun?! And those shoes are super cute!! I always like seeing what other peoples days are like.

  4. I love Day In the Life posts!!! Jeremy and I are able to IM each other all day too and it totally makes my day and helps me get through work. I'm so jealous your husband gets to work from home, that's always been my dream job =)
    Here is one that I did back at the beginning of the year:

  5. This was so fun to read! I love seeing the everyday of my favorite blog friends. Great idea to capture little things like gas prices and what you wore. What a blessed life you have! Can't wait to do my own "day in the life" and link up. Have a great day!

  6. I love this post! So jealous that you can wear jeans to work and even more jealous that Ryan gets to work from home!

  7. Tres interesting. So interesting. As a stay at home Mom my Dad looks totally different! Maybe I should do this! You look like you've lost some weight which means while I'm growing LIKE A CHAMP, you are getting smaller.

  8. Such a great idea! I might have to try this!


I'd love to hear from you!
