Photo An Hour

Thursday, January 30, 2014


When Steph said that she was planning on hosting a linkup party for photo an hour I immediately knew I wanted to participate in this. Just like Steph I am might be a little nosey and I like to know what other people get into during their day. 
Isn't that why we all check our instagram feeds so often?
We are all human and wonder what people are doing.
So yesterday I took a picture during every hour of my day so that you can take a walk in my shoes for a typical workday (9-4) and evening at home. 

My mornings always start with Anthony rolling out of bed around 5:30 a.m. (he is a crazy early riser and is up before the rooster) I always roll back over and try to steal another hour or two of shut eye. 
Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't but I squeezed in another 45 minutes before Diesel was whining for Momma to get out of bed. So my feet were hitting the floor a lil before 6:30...

Breakfast time for the boys.

Car is already started and warming up, kissing the boys good bye, turning on their radio & I am bundled all up to brave the cold. It usually takes my car a little while down the road to fully heat up.

Just a little moisturizing at work. 

Our FedEx shipment always comes between 10&10:30. Gotta get them checked in, removed from the system and make appointments with the patient to get their hearing aid back.

I get the pleasure of decorating our office for all the holidays and I love it! 
It is probably a good thing the other girls in the office don't do it.
Heart banners made by yours truly!!

All caught up on actual work stuff so taking advantage of reading some blogs, checking my personal emails and scrolling through IG a little bit until someone gives me more work to do.

Back to work stuff, making some spreadsheets. 
My obsession of greens and blues carries on everywhere!!!
I can't help it and hey it all looks better with pretty colors and tables right?!

Your probably wondering when does this chick eat?
I typically take my lunches later in the day around 2:30 or 3:00 because for one I usually have a mid morning snack that holds me off to take a later lunch and secondly when I eat later in the day it makes my afternoon go much faster since we close at 4:00. The plus side of this is that I am not tempted to snack when I get off work and I can wait until dinner to eat again.

My last hour of work always flies by (unless I am watching the clock) and by 3:56 I am chomping at the bit to flip this sign, lock the front door, unplug the coffee pot, turn on the answering machine, send the daily report to my boss and get outta there for the day. I have two dogs patiently waiting for Momma to come home and play with them and spoil them with treats so I usually go straight home unless I need to stop at the grocery store.

Dinner time for the boys. They have already had their bellies scratched, gone outside and are ready to eat.

Yoga time.
I can usually squeeze in about 30 minutes of yoga in the evening unless I get too caught up in blog reading or playing with the boys. Tank doesn't usually let me get by with much more than half an hour

my sweet boy

I finally finished our Shutterfly book of our Honeymoon & ordered it!
Just in time to use this $20 promo card from Aunt Lori! (exp.Jan.31)

cuddle sesh with my hubby.

 late supper. leftovers, taco wrap.

Time to disconnect from the electronics. 
I try to lay in bed right before I go to sleep and read an actual book instead of staring at my ipad screen.
By doing this I usually drift off to sleep and am out by 10:00.

So that is a day in my life. 
Nothing too exciting. My weekends sometimes get a little more rowdy.
Okay most of them are just spent cuddling with Tank and playing with Diesel in the snow.
A summer weekend would be much more visually appealing right about now considering this is what my Fridays (ok usually Sat&Sun too) consist of between May and September
is anyone else yearning for these warm summer days to be back?! 
Please excuse me while I go do some online shopping for the cutest bikini I can find from Vickies!!!

Make sure you swing by Stephs or Meg's to see what everyone else is getting into during their day.

  6. OMG your summer picture there at the end actually made my heart lurch! I typically don't year for summer but as I'm staring out the window at a pile of snow (well, a pile for NC is about 3 inches), I want nothing more than a bathing suit and pool! Your heart banner is ADORABLE! I think I'll have to make one for my office too--even though my office is just me in a room at my house. Whatever. Glad I found your blog!

  10. This is so neat with a photo an hour! Such a neat idea! That would be tough to take a photo every hour! Love all the pics! Diesels face in the morning is too funny! Our doggies have the same food bowls in our camper :) Great pic of you and Anthony too by the way! :)
