A Day in the Life...

Last Monday I took pictures throughout my day to document here on my blog what a day in my life looks like.  I love to look back and see what we were up to at that time and I think it might help when school starts again to get me back in the day to day schedule.  Mondays are always started early for me atleast.  I wake up at 6:15 and make lunches and usually get breakfasts ready for the girls.

Kayla usually reads until I call her in to eat and some mornings Brooklyn sleeps until I wake her up around 7:20 but Mondays everyone is usually up and eating breakfast at the same time.

After they are all taken care of I make my chai latte and read through emails, check on some favorite blogs if I have time and just relax before I get ready for the day.

Kayla usually comes over to tell me ALL about a new book or just ask me some questions.

Around 7:55 we all load into the car and head off to school

off they go!!!

Mondays are grocery shop days, luckily I didn't have too much to get so I was done rather quickly!

After I'm home and groceries are put away it's time to work out.  I try to work out atleast 3 days a week, during Summer I work out 4-5 but that is because I have more time to work out whenever I want to.

After my work out it's time to take my favorite pooch for a walk

then a shower for me

ugh laundry,
Mondays is always laundry!
After a weekend of being out and about there is always laundry to be done.

Atleast there is still some time to watch some of my favorite shows before picking up Brooklyn.  I love Hallmark and The Good Witch.

I try to enjoy my lunch around 11 before picking up Brooklyn.  Lately it's either salads or some sort of microwave meal.  I'm not much of a sandwhich person so this is my alternative

12 o'clock and my baby is home for lunch

She is done with homework for the year so she plays on her tablet for an hour right away.

I cuddle up on the couch and watch some shows or read with my furbabies

until I get a crazy idea to paint this tiny chair to put on the front porch

I always grab the mail before heading to wait in the pick up for Kayla....yay for new magazines to read while I wait.  Brooklyn also reads her book for school while we wait.

Kayla brought Brooklyn a half of a cookie wrapped up in a napkin that she got today at school.  Brooklyn was very happy and so was I especially considering how grumpy Kayla usually is when I pick her up from school.  She isn't the nicest to her little sister when she gets in the car so this was nice for a change!

We are home!

The new chair is dry and now on the porch.

back to laundry

poor Kayla still has homework to do daily

but she is nice enough to let Brooklyn play in her room while she does's a good day over here!

Soon enough it's time to head out to softball for Kayla's game

but not before a quick stop to pick up something warm for me.

Kayla ready to go
and Brooklyn most likely trying to get her hair out of her gum

This game just so ended up being the longest game of the season, it wasn't over until almost 8 and by the time we got home I was exhausted!

Dinner plans were thrown out the window and we had to grab whatever was fast and easy, the girls took super fast showers and then they were in bed close to nine!  I went to bed soon after and that was the end to our Monday.  I'm so ready for there not to be a daily routine for the Summer especially because it will be back to it way too soon!
