A Day in the Life

For some reason, I really love taking a peek into the daily lives of friends and fellow bloggers.  When I stumbled across April's "Day in the Life" post, I found myself relating on so many levels!  And I thought I'd give it a try :)
It's probably extremely boring and mundane - but this is a good representative of a typical day around our neck of the woods.  This was Friday!  (oh, and forgive the lack of professionalism and glamour with my fancy iPhone pictures!)

Ellie is awake, and ready to eat!  She slept 8 hours straight- so we're both refreshed and ready to start our day! 

After I nurse Ellie, Andrew wakes up and John brings him in to snuggle and cuddle in bed with us.  I love this part of the day :)  Andrew holds Ellie and sings her a song about Jesus, fire trucks, and peanut's kind of amazing. 


Ellie goes down for her morning nap, while John fixes Andrew breakfast.  Today it's cereal and a green smoothie for him.  I make my way over to the coffee pot.  Time to really get this day started.

Breakfast for me: I have been loving scrambled eggs lately.  Today I add spinach, shredded cheese, ham, salt & pepper, and a dash of almond milk.

(my standard morning ensemble: sweat pants, sweat shirt, and slippers)

Breakfast is served!

10AM - 11AM
Andrew does some art projects - coloring today.  This is the time where we usually do some quiet activity like this.  (Painting, stickers, reading, etc.)

I usually either sit with him, do dishes, or clean up a little bit.  Today, I take a few minutes to reorganize a kitchen drawer.  Are you enthralled yet?  ;)
I really should have taken a "before" picture - that would have been much more entertaining.

Ellie is awake and ready to party!  AKA - eat. 


I feed her, while Andrew gets to watch a show - "Thomas" and eat a snack (a peach and a cheese stick). 

Andrew goes down for his nap.  I play with Ellie, and fix a quick lunch for myself. 
Chicken salad and blue chips. 

I take Ellie into the bathroom with me (she plays on her mat), and I get started on my "5-minute face".  This is my typical makeup routine, quick and easy! 

And I can't forget my hair routine - dry shampoo for the win!

Ellie is down for her afternoon nap, and it's "me" time!
I catch up on this week's "Bachelor", and house hunt on Zillow!

Andrew is up!  He makes me lay down with him for a bit, and I don't complain!

Ellie is up.  I nurse her, and fix a late lunch for Andrew.  Today it's greek yogurt, a granola bar, pretzels, and an orange.

We pack up the car, and head out to meet John at the mall to look for new glasses for him.  We shop around a little bit, and hit up a couple stores.

 I find these on sale at Gap, and scoop them up!

Back home.  I feed Ellie while John and Andrew play. 
I grab a quick snack, and start dinner for Andrew (quesadilla, pretzels, and hummus). 

I freshen up, because I've got plans!  Drinks and appetizers with a girlfriend! 

Bedtime feed for Ellie, read books with Andrew, and say goodbye! 
John puts him to bed around 7:30PM, right as I head out the door!
 (new top from Free People - love it!)

Well the drinks with my girlfriend actually turned into a SURPRISE going-away party thrown by 12 of my sweet friends!  (Have I blogged about our move?!) 
It was the best night, and I was an emotional mess!  Love you girls!
(handmade gift from my friend, Margaret!)

Home, and BED!
 Whew!  Is anyone still with me??
Thanks for coming along with me as I recapped "A Day in the Life"! 

Happy Hump Day!

I love reading about how others spend their day! I am all about the quick make up too, I do not have the time to have a long make up routine! Such a sweet idea of giving you a surprise going away party.

First of all, Ellie awake at 11:30 and that fist - can't take it. She is so cute! Second, I absolutely LOVE that handmade gift. How sweet is that? I'm sure they will miss you. But as I said before, I'm SO excited for you and John.
xoxo, Mecca
