A Day In The Life {July 2017}

I am such a nosey person and I always find that day in the life posts are tops on my favorites when it comes to blogging. That and a good home tour are by far what I request/am requested to write! So I'm coming at you with a day in the life post for you. I decided to document yesterday. Now my pictures get super sparce about halfway through the  day. I just can't seem to remember to stop and take a picture of what we are doing.

My morning started at 6:25 am when I awoke to a foot in my back. At some point in the night Jack had gotten into our bed, usually I remember this happening but last night I did not. I tried to sneak out of bed without waking Jack but thanks to an awake and talking Graham the monitor woke Jack up. The two of us head downstairs to see Daddy before he leaves for work.

Graham is happily laying/playing quietly in his crib so he stays up there for awhile. Jack grabs some breakfast and takes a seat on Patricks lap.  I fix my coffee, grab my computer and plop down on the sofa to catch up on my morning blog reads.

Once Patrick leaves Jack moves to the sofa and snuggles up to me with his iPad and I continue to read on my computer/catch up on a bit of the Today show.

About 7:30 I head upstairs to get Graham but first I fix his sippy of milk and grab a bar for him. This will stop the tantrum that would happen if I waited to do this after he came downstairs.

Both boys are happily settled chilling on the sofa watching a show. We tend to have some lazy mornings around here. At least for the first hour or so, everyone is content and I finish my coffee/make a quick breakfast for myself and try to read Southern Living (that didn't happen)

Today my sitter is coming at 8:30 to keep Graham and Jack will go to camp. From about 8:15-8:45 is always hectic! Trying to get the boys dressed and ready to go plus getting my self somewhat presentable, usually ends up in me breaking out into a sweat and some form of raising my voice. This particular morning I have a hair appointment so I decide to put real clothes/makeup on as opposed to my workout clothes that usually get thrown on.

8:50 and Jack and I are out the door, I quick drop him off and then head to my 9:15 hair appointment. The hour and half that I'm at my hair appointment is like a vacation to me. No little people calling my name, no food to fix for anyone, just sitting and relaxing.

After my appointment I run a few errands and make a stop over to visit with my MIL, she was taking a rest so I got to sit on the porch with her sister and visit before heading to get Jack at 12.

Since Grammy was home with Anna I took the opportunity to take Jack out to lunch with his bestie Charlotte. Graham is at the age where he doesn't want to sit still in a restaurant and it makes it miserable for all.

While we are gone Anna and Graham play outside and she snapped this sweet picture for me! 

1:00 and we are on the way home ready for naps!  Id like to say I spent this time doing all the things, but honestly I just plopped on the sofa and watched a show. I did try and do some invoicing for some clothes I was selling. Jack got up at 3 and comedown and snuggled with me.

4:00 and the boys are awake, our friends Hudson and James come over for a little play date. It was so hot that no one wanted to be outside! It was one of those days that even the pool sounded miserable.

After they left we continued to play for a little before having leftovers for supper. I just don't feel like cooking when its 103 outside.

The boys are starting to really play with each other so after supper they had a fun time playing on the floor and making each other laugh! Jack kept saying "Grahammy lay on my tummy"

7:00 and it's time for me to take Graham up to bed. We read a few books, sing a few songs and he goes right down.  This is usually when we let Jack watch a show (power rangers is his show of choice lately) before he goes to bed at 8:00.

Most nights after the boys are in bed Patrick and I will watch a show or two before we go up to bed right at 10.

As you can see our day is nothing special, in fact it could be quite boring for most. This is what a typical day looks like for us.

What does your day look like?
