tuesday randomness: a day in my life

Did you read Emily's blog post the other day?  She took instagram pictures through her day, every hour on the hour to track her day and put it all together in a collage.  It was a fun read. 

I decided to tweak my normal Tuesday randomness post and copy her idea today.

Last Friday, I took pictures every hour all day.  I set my cell phone alarm to help me remember, like she suggested.  Here is what my day looked like:

 6:30 wake up and get ready for the day.  shower, make up, dress, blow dry.

7:30 walk Reid to school

8:30 out for bagels with Grant and Mark

9:30 off to the bank

10:30 stop over at Mark's shop to work on email, custom posts, online banking and other business while he watches Grant.

11:30 Grant's naptime.  I have to block the door with the barstool because Samson will push it open and check on him {i.e. wake him up}

12:30 lunch {pb sandwich} followed by a phone meeting

1:30 trying to decide which outfit to wear to the 50's themed school auction that night

2:30 laundry...my constant companion

3:30 sending child #1 off to his baseball game with Grandma

4:30 run

5:30 getting ready for the school auction

6:30 leaving with my hot date

7:30 silent auction and dinner

8:30 realizing we didn't get Reid's classroom art that we bid on. then realizing it was my friend who won the bid!

9:30 some friends at the auction.  how cute are they?  {the second one from the left is my friend Grace who gave me the inspiration for the first ever Grace necklace, which is now a best seller}

10:30 I cried on the way home when I read the message from Mark's mom that Reid had gotten the game ball...I missed it! so bittersweet.  I was going to wake him up to congratulate him.  I didn't have to.  Grandma doesn't really impose that whole bedtime thing.

11:30 sweet sleep....at least for a few hours! we had baseball pictures the next day at 8:00!


This was a fun little experiment...this day was pretty typical for a Friday.  I usually try and make Friday's light and fun, because I am ready for a break by then. 

It would be fun to do this again on a Monday or Tuesday...maybe I will!

Happy Tuesday Friends!
