Day in the Life

Happy Hump Day, ya’ll. For today’s post I thought I’d share what a day in my life looks like. I love reading these on other blogs and I want to be able to look back and see a day in my life with only a puppy and Hubby to handle! 🙂

So, here we go. Here’s a look at my Tuesday, December 8, 2015!

5:10 AM 


My alarm goes off so I can hit the gym before work. I snooze for about 10 minutes and snuggle with Copley before dragging my butt out of bed. Once my feet hit the floor, I’m happy that I’m up and am ready to get my endorphins flowing. Although, I do usually brush my teeth with my eyes closed.

5:30 – 6:40 AM

Hit the gym. Today I did 30 minutes on the elliptical and then a Tone it Up Youtube video. Their holiday hustle workout was great! No equipment necessary!! I’m definitely going to be doing this workout over the holidays.

7 AM 


Add December 8th to our advent calendar! And then eat breakfast (oatmeal with A LOT of cinnamon).

7:15 -7:50 AM

Get ready for work. I take way too hot of a shower and have to lay in bed for 10 minutes (and watch some old Housewives!!) to cool off. I put on makeup, blow dry my hair, decide what to wear and wrangle stolen socks from Copley. When I’m all ready, I get my lunch together and put Copley’s cage in the kitchen. We started leaving her in the kitchen with a baby gate 6 months ago but we put her cage in there because it’s her safe zone. She whines a little bit, but then I give her a treat and she’s happy again. Out the door by 7:50.

8 AM – 11:30 AM

At work. Sit in meetings. Chained to email box. Make updates to marketing calendar.

11:30 AM


Run errands over lunch. I have to hit up the ATM so I can pay for a wreath I bought to support my boss’ boys scout troop.

12 PM 


Everything is okay. I have a skinny peppermint mocha.

12 – 1 PM


Eat lunch at my desk (leftover pasta fagioli) and do my follow-up tasks from my morning meetings. Respond to more emails. Make to-do list for items due next week.

1 – 6 PM

Keep plugging away. More meetings. More marketing plans. Calls to discuss involvement in trade shows. Work with vendors for branded apparel. Text Hubby that he needs to be home at a decent time to take Copley for a walk. Most days I beat Hubby home and take Copley for a long walk. Hate that I’m leaving so late and still have to run to CVS to pick up a prescription.

6:40 PM


FINALLY HOME! Play fetch with this cute little face. Oh, and hang out with Hubby a little bit! Seriously, is coming home after a long, awful day of work to a tail wagging puppy the best?!

7 – 8:30 PM

Finally sit down and “relax.” Basically my mind races with work things that still need to get done and other blog posts I want to write as I watch the last episode of The Mindy Project. P.S. what was that ending?! Eat some dinner on the couch (salad and apple with peanut butter). Talk to Hubby about our days.

9 PM 

Put away laundry and start packing for my upcoming business trip. Order my last Christmas gifts for family!! Finish typing this post.

10 PM


Time to snuggle with these two and watch* 30 Rock.

*or pass out immediately once my head hits the pillow

What’s your favorite time of the day? How do you spend your lunch hour? What time do you go to bed?
