Friday Five

Friday Five: A Day in the life…

Today I am linking up with Mar, Cynthia, and Courtney for my first Friday five link up!  Please head over and check out their blogs!

I’m super excited!!!


Today’s topic is a day in the life…my life is pretty routine, so please bear with my monotony.  The key to the excitement is that any deviation from my routine truly throws me off…ack!  LOL

My alarm goes off promptly at 6:03 a.m. every week day for work.  If my husband is in town, I allow myself 2 snoozes because I am only in charge of getting myself ready, and taking my oldest to school.  After the second snooze, I roll out of bed and stumble to the bathroom.  I put in my moisture eye drops (I have terribly dry eyes), turn on my curling iron and hot water (it takes several minutes to heat up) and then use the restroom.  After which I get dressed quickly (my clothes are set out the night before-always), put on deodorant, brush my teeth and wash my face.  I shower at night…Then it’s quick make up, throw my hair up and I’m ready to go.  All in exactly 15 minutes flat.

Just can’t delete my MC audition alarm, lol

Next I grab my Starbucks refresher which has been my BFF since my insomnia resurfaced.  I gave up most caffeine quite a while ago, but this has become a necessity to function.  I like it because it’s cheaper than going to Starbucks, and has WAY less sugar/crap in it I’ve found.  Here’s my favorite flavor!

Yes please and thanks!
Yes please and thanks!

My day then becomes rather boring.  Monday through Friday, and every 5th weekend I am working.  My job is foreign to most, but I supervise an Anatomic Pathology laboratory and although it’s not my life passion I have really grown to love the people and place I work.

My workouts depend on the day/my schedule.  Normally Monday is rest/light weights, Tuesday/Thursday running, Friday light weights, and Saturday or Sunday are my long run days with the other day used for walking/rest.  My youngest accompanied me on my 4 miler yesterday.  It was sheer bliss seeing her smile from ear to ear and giggle for 1.2 miles.

Can someone BE any cuter?  Talking about my youngest of
Can someone BE any cuter? Talking about my youngest of course…lol

My evenings are normally filled with kids homework, chores, cooking, etc until about 8 p.m. where I shut down and allow myself time to blog, fb, do SOMETHING I enjoy.  We deserve a little down time, right?!


So that’s my Friday fives!!!  So excited to link up this week, and hope you enjoyed!!

What does your daily routine look like?  Are you a planner? What do you do for enjoyment?

Thanks, y’all!

❤ Michelle

  1. Awe Michelle, so cool about your cutie joining you for a run! I love it! 🙂 What an adorable picture and seriously, I don’t think anyone could be cuter! 🙂 So sweet! I LOVE Refreshers, too!! They are SO good!! Have a fabulous weekend and I loved your post!! Great routine! XOXO


  2. I think it is so amazing when your kids join you in a run. Someday when we are all gone, our kids will be telling THEIR grandkids things like, “I remember when I was just a young girl/boy, and I used to watch my Mom run. I’ll never forget those days when I went with her.” It chokes me up just thinking about it, Michelle. You’re such a wonderful Mom! 🙂


  3. You and your daughter are so cute!!! 😀
    My daily routine changes each day but stays about the same from week to week. I definitely have days that are more favorite than others. 🙂
    I hope you have had a wonderful and relaxing weekend!


  4. My day is definitely not worth writing about. Or let me rephrase that…the good stuff that happens, in the clinic at work? I can’t really share…privacy and all. I’d say that part of my life is not dull at all. When you work with the public….The rest of my life is pretty mundane.


  5. I love that you have such a specific time for your alarm to go off in the morning, and have the snoozes planned in 🙂 I got my husband to agree to 1 snooze but he didn’t go for more than that.
