A Day in the Life: May 2014


Only two months to the day since my last one! #winning

I'm tired of apologizing for my lack of consistency.  Sometimes I have enough on my plate just processing my life as it happens, you know? Never mind meticulously cataloging and packaging it up for my blog.  This summer I've given myself a break and haven't blogged because, well, I haven't felt like it.

However, I am still participating in the Day in the Life challenge, where I post snaps from a day in my life once a month. (Hosted by Manda at Musical Poem, thanks!!) I just haven't posted them since April.  I feel the need to play catch-up, so this post and the next two are to fill in those gaps.

Let's begin with MAY!

// 6:30 am

The start of day four at a brand new full-time job as office minion at an unnamed company. Still getting used to the rhythm of the 8-5 grind, clearly.

// 7:00 am

Multigrain Cheerios in almond milk and fresh strawberries. Can't complain about that.

// 7:20 am

Heading out to work.  Our new place out in the country has its ups and downs but I'm not mad at the quiet 30 minute drive to the office.

// 8:00 am

My view for the day. Just for reference, I'm 5'3" and my shoulders barely cleared that window when I stood in front of it. I hated that window. HATED. IT.  It always made me feel trapped in a box.

// 12:30 pm

Five minutes from the office was a gorgeous park and I looked forward to my lunch hour more than was healthy.  Every day, I was out there eating my lunch, lolling about on a blanket like I was on holiday without a care in the world.

Today's menu included the classic brown bag selection of turkey on wheat, carrots, and strawberries. Shout out to Hattie for that water bottle. It always makes me feel extra classy and reminds me that she gives the best birthday gifts.

Well hello, Food Magazine, yes I'm available for photo shoots.

This was just a week before I had another quarter life crisis and chopped off 8 inches of my hair. I miss you sometimes, long ponytail.

// 5:00 pm

Time to go home!!! And time to take a picture of my OOTD, obviously. This is my new favorite maxi skirt, particularly because I can wear my favorite neon yellow flats with it.

// 6:00 pm

Too tired to function. I don't even think I had dinner that night. I laid on my bed and flipped through the summer preview J. Crew catalog because I bought a t-shirt there once so I'm going to get their catalogs until I die.

I dig your summer camp vibes, but I do not know a single serious outdoors woman that would wear a silk sheath dress or white cropped trousers while camping.  If any of my friends showed up wearing that, I would laugh them out of my canoe. Get real,  J. Crew.

// 7:00 pm 

Spencer showed up asking for help in making a pie chart for a school project. The only reason he did so is because every other person in our house was not around. I am not good at homework help, you guys. Not. good. Thank goodness he's only in fifth grade.

// 8:00 pm

LUSH bubble bath time. I take way more baths than an adult should, but I don't feel bad about it. The only thing keeping me from taking baths everyday is that they are time consuming and kind of a waste of water. But if I was just watch out. Hold my calls, Jay-Z, I'm going to go have a soak.

// 10:00 pm

SLEEEEEP. One more day til the weekend!

  1. You are fun. I know life is full of curve-balls and not-very-satisfying jobs, but just know that even on a lousy day, you are making people smile. (Not apologizing for cheesy comments, I am one of those smiling people) I hope things are looking up now that you are baking delicious goods at a café/general store. Anytime you need a taste tester, I am only a couple hours away.


I love to hear what you're thinking! Thanks for the comment love. :)
