5 Things in My Day/Day in the Life


I’m linking up for the Friday Five with these three ladies: Cynthia, Mar, and Courtney again today! Today’s topic is 5 Things in My Day/Day in the Life.

1. I get up at 3am for work. It’s crazy early and I am by no means a morning person so I start my day off right with some coffee! Coffee and I have been BFF’s for quite some time now. We understand each other. I’m actually trying to cut coffee out, because reasons, but it is not going to be an easy task!

This is totally me!
This is totally me!

2. I go to work and make all kinds of yummy pastries that I must try to not stuff in my face. I have a serious sweet tooth. The struggle is real!!

3. After I get off work, I run. This is the 2nd favorite part of my day. It’s helps me clear my head and get out any pent up aggression I may have. This week has finally been great weather for it!

4. I pick up my daughter from day care next. Seeing that little smiling face is the favorite part of my day! We get to laugh and play around in the car. She’s on a duck, duck, goose kick right now. Apparently geese are hilarious! Of course I’m also excited to see my husband once he gets home from work.

Haylie is getting big enough that she can interact with the dogs more now. Oscar gets so excited that he just wants to lick her to death. Hurley isn’t too sure about her still, but both the dogs know that she throws them food so ultimately she’s okay in their book. Noodles can cause some trouble. We are trying to teach Haylie the importance of not putting her fingers near him. He loves to throw his food and she seems to enjoy picking it up and throwing it back in his cage so that’s good at least. IMG_1796IMG_1598 I also try to get some sleep when I can before I do it all over again the next day! There’s other random fun things that get thrown in there too, like broken washing machines. Never a dull moment!

Do you have lots of crazy pets? How about a job where you get up at crazy o’clock in the morning?

    1. Somedays it’s hard to find the motivation to run after work but I can’t get up an earlier than I do to run before. I’m usually in bed by 9. Makes me feel old. Haha


  1. Love the photo of your cutie smiling in the backseat!! I have lots of pets at our house and right now we’re dog sitting too! We have one dog, a 55 gallon fish tank, a hooded rat and 2 parakeets 🙂


    1. He is fun and a little crazy. He says a few things like step up, noodles, hi and good boy. It’s pretty funny when he talks. I try hard not to eat everything. Some days I certainly succeed more than others.


  2. It would be really hard for me to work around all of those delicious pastries, too. It’s a good thing you run! I only wake up that early if I’m having trouble sleeping or if it’s race day!


  3. Your daughter is so darn cute!!! Daycare pick up is so the best part of the day. 🙂
    And I’m up early, but not THAT early! I’m a morning person, but I don’t know how I would do with that early. (I’d probably adjust though!) Love that mug!


    1. Thanks! I especially love it when I hear her saying “mama” before they open the door. So cute! I don’t think I’ll ever get used to getting up that early. I just fake it as best as I can. The good thing about it is that I’m usually done by 2:00 or so.
