Day in the Life

My friend, Olivia, did a “Day in the Life” post hour-by-hour recently.  I loved her post and wanted to do it for myself.  I love reading those “Day in the Life” posts, but I have such a hard time remembering to document my day.  I did the best I could!  I must tell you that we’re living in our new house, but it’s a mess!  Like I have hours to spend unpacking, but I don’t want this to be the summer we shut down to move so it’s happening as I fit it in.  Needless to say, you might see a television in a master bathroom or REALLY hideous curtains that need to go.  All those things will be moved and taken down-eventually.  🙂  

6:00 a.m.-My alarm went off.  I grabbed some coffee (please note-the thick layer of dust on the Keurig.  I didn’t realize it was this bad until I posted the picture!!!  The floors were resanded and restained and there is dust EVERYWHERE!!), had my quiet time, and caught up on blogs.

7:00 a.m.-The carpet guys were coming, so this room had to be completely cleaned out.

I left blinds and the water for Tab.  🙂

8:00 a.m.-I got everyone ready for the day, started the dishwasher and the laundry.

9:00 a.m.-Ebby Lee, Bowen, and I dropped off these three cute boys at basketball camp.

I stayed for an extra second to watch.  They were so cute!

10:00 a.m.-My personal shopper, Marla, had told me about some cute chairs at our local HomeGoods.  We went to check them out and bought them for our dining room!  EEK!

11:00 a.m.-I went by Marla’s to drop off a couple things and she asked if the kids could stay!  My car was empty.

12:00 p.m.-Don’t pay attention to the mess!  I picked up the boys, dropped one off, and grabbed these cuties some lunch.

1:00 p.m.-I forgot a picture while we were out there, but the boys swam while I read a book.

2:00 p.m.-Smith and Nixon were playing in the playroom.

3:00 p.m.-Nixon and Smith moved the party to Nixon’s room.  (During this time-the floor guy stopped by so I talk to him, the cabinet guy calls me back and we set up a game plan, and I’m trying to unpack.)

4:00 p.m.-I sat down (still in my swimsuit and towel-ridiculous) to blog and check e-mail.

4:30 p.m.-New carpet is down and I love it!

5:00 p.m.-Getting ready for LADIES’ NIGHT!!  And I’m a little excited. Can you tell?

6:00 p.m.-Ready and waiting for my chauffeur.  

6:00 p.m.-Chauffeur arrived and we were off to dinner to meet our girls.

Then I forgot to document anything after that.  ha!  I got back from dinner, helped Tab bathe the kiddos, watched a bit of television, and was off to bed.

Hope you have a fabulous day!

    Those chairs are incredible! Marla is the best! And can we seriously "play college" (and you find me a house in McKinney)? I have been eyeing your KS earrings and I just bought that AC necklace last week! The house is looking great!

    I am slightly jealous you found four cute and matching chairs at Home Goods! That never happens for me! Its always like 2 or 3, and then I am bummed! The new house is looking great!
