A while ago I did one of those a day in the life type of posts where I showed a picture from every hour of my day to show what a “normal” day is like in these parts. That was fun and all, but that “normal” day featured happened to be a weekend day which meant I was shopping at 10:00 am and eating pies at 10:00 pm, which shockingly enough isn’t exactly what my normal day looks like. Instead, I thought it would be fun to show you what a real day looks like for me which actually involves a little less pie and a lot less shopping. I know, it’s a bummer.
From approximately 7:00-7:30 I complete all of the necessary tasks (ie: making myself appear to look like a normal human instead of a dead cracked out zombie).
8:00 am and I am tucked into my little cubicle at work, ready to spill coffee and other fun things like that.
My poor co-workers, whenever they hear me giggling and then see me sprinting down the hall, they know what’s just happened. It looks very similar to this.
I work in our training department which means I get to teach all of the newbies the ins and outs of working where I work. In my spare time I build Boom Boxes and other crafty stuff like that. In my other spare time I have dance parties with disco balls. Don’t tell.
At noon I say “Peace Out” and get the flock out of work for the day. God bless half days every day. On a typical day I have an errand or two to run and by errand I mean a fast food joint to hit up, a tanning bed to lay in (I HAVE A TRIP COMING UP, I HAVE TO), and Stitch Fix orders to return to the Post Office.
Once home, I kindly yell at my husband to take a picture of me for blogging purposes while he is in mid-bite of his sandwich. He kindly obliges after I remind him that no pictures equal no money.
This means I open up my Whitney English Day Designer, (can we all just talk about how this is the most amazing planner in the entirety of planners?!) and start going through my to-do list. This typically includes answering emails, writing posts, blog consultations, creating/photographing a recipe, taking/editing photos for sponsors/personal posts, tweeting, instagramming, and so on.
ps. somewhere in between all of that I sing really loudly, do the cupid shuffle, and eat five handfuls of jalapeno chips. make that ten.
pps. remember that SIP Happens party? Below is the post we chose as our favorite, the announcement for next months party, PLUS a special giveaway we are hosting for all of you who want to enter! Good luck!
They had us at: “I can totally do yoga! Try this move. It stretches me!” & “Oh, the sip. It did happen.” & “After approximately eight bottles of wine for six people, the conversations change drastically.”
They drank these wines….
