day to day

 maybe I'm overly curious, maybe I'm a creeper but I love learning about other's lives -- where they live, what their house looks like, what they do first when they get home.

(crap. I think I am creepy.)

but I thought maybe you guys are just as curious as me so I'm sharing a little bit about my day to day.

It's not glamorous or exciting but it's real life, and I like that.

>> 6:00 a.m. alarm goes off. turned off.
>> 6:10 a.m. second alarm goes off
>> 6:10 a.m. alarm snoozed
>> 6:15 a.m. alarm goes off
>> 6:15 a.m. alarm snoozed

6:20 a.m. Get up. ugh. I am not a morning person. 

6:20-6:40 monster walked 
>> 6:40-7:00 a.m. figure out something with the hair, get dressed.
>> 7:10 a.m. run for the bus.

7:20-7:50ish bus time. I put on my makeup, check email and respond to shop stuff. 
 8:00 a.m. work! I eat breakfast at work-- coffee + oatmeal with fruit and almonds is my standard. 
11:30: gym break. This is definitely not a daily thing but I try to make it a three times a week thing. The building I work in has a gym and small locker room. I honestly really don't like working out but I feel so much better about life when I do. (it also helps break up a long day.) 
noonish: lunch! 

afternoon: more work. 

>> 5 p.m.: peace out! time for the looong bus ride home.

 5:30 p.m.: home! look who greets me!
6 p.m. husband barbecues on the deck while I put together the rest of dinner inside. 

(I usually beg the husband for an outfit post photo at this time too.) :)

 7:30 p.m. shop time! I go upstairs and start sewing, packaging orders or working on blog posts.

 10:30 p.m. time for bed, Bible reading and hangout with my two favorite guys. (or if it's a late night-- more shop time...I'm rarely asleep before 11:30) like I said, not glamorous, but real life. :)

and then it starts all over again...

but not tomorrow because it's Friday!

xo, erika

p.s. have you ever done a day in the life post? I'd love to see it... because, well, you know I'm creepy like that. ;)

    happy friday, lady!

  2. Hmmmm I might have to now.... Love the pics!

  3. I loved this post! I guess that means I am creepy, too? Guess who will be taking pictures of their public transportation today....

  4. I really like this kind of post! Its neat to see other peoples routines, makes me wish I had a more structured week!

  5. Love this, Erika! I love routine and struggle with it in the summer since my job pace changes so much. But I have been loving this week of establishing out routine for the semester.
    PS I have the same Bible :)

  6. I love this post! (so maybe i get to call myself a creeper too???) oh and dude! i have the SAME exact bible!!!!!

  7. Hmm I must be a creeper too because I loved seeing the details of your day! And your dog is so adorable :)


  8. I loved this peek into your day. I too spend a lot of time walking my monsters :). And you go to bed so late!

  9. I love posts like this! There is something so fun about getting a glimpse of other people's everyday, real lives! I guess, we are all a little bit creepy!! :)

  10. Ha! this is a really fun post - you've inspired me and I think I'll do one as well. I am in love with your dog, btw.

  11. Aw I liked this post, so fun! And look at your fancy schmancy office with a window and nice view! :]

  12. That's a cool idea! I think my post would be quite boring though...
