One Hour Photo

I've seen this on a few other blogs and thought it would be a cute way to share with you a little bit of my day to day grind!  So last Thursday I toted my camera around with me to capture my day in photos by the hour!

My alarm goes off.  As a chronic snooze button hitter you'll notice it's almost a full 30 minutes later before I drag my lazy butt out of bed.

Out of the shower.  Time to wake up Jamie.  Oh but wait, he woke up at 3:00am and slept in our bed for the 2nd night in a row.  Joy.  Have I mentioned how much I hate teething?  And sharing a Queen sized bed with 1 husband, 1 dog and 1 crazy toddler...doesn't exactly equal a goods night sleep.

Mama heads off to work!
You'll note my son is more concerned with his ball then actually saying goodbye.

7:30am continued:
My drive to work.  Notice how we're stopped on the on ramp before even attempting to merge on to the parking lot that is I-35 everyday?  It's awesome.  You're jealous.  I know it.

Arrive at the ole J-O-B
Here's my home away from home

Morning snack.  Usually I eat a yogurt or banana, but my co-worker brought in these delicious cinnamon Mexican cookies.  And gummy bears.  I couldn't resist didn't want to be rude and turn her down.

Catching up on some xray developing since it was broke last week.

Trying to sneak in a little blog reading.  Notice that big blank box where a picture should be?  Yeah work blocks them.  So not only can I not comment on blogs at work, I can't even see pictures.  Kind of takes the fun out of blog reading.  Especially on days like "Wordless Wednesday."  Stupid work trying to make me actually be productive.

12:30pm: Lunch time!  Slightly more nutritious than my breakfast.  My co-worker thinks it's werid I eat apples with cheese.  I've done it as long as I can remember....am I alone on this one? 

Back to work!  And in case you were wondering, I actually did see patients today, but I figured taking pictures of kids and putting them on the internet was a bad idea.  So you only get to see the less glamourous, behind the scenes part of my job.  Sorry.

Woot woot! I get to leave early today to take little man to his 15 month check up!

Stop for gas on my way to daycare. 
There are way more exciting ways to spend $60.  I despise spending it on gas.

Waiting for the doctor and enjoying our afternoon snack.  They made homemade ginger bread men at daycare.  How cute is that??  Even better is when they sent me with a to-go baggie since this mama forgot to grab the diaper bag on her way out this morning.  Oops.

Home at last!  Letting out Kasey and playing in the backyard.  Can anyone tell me what those weird green brain looking balls are that fall from our trees??  Jamie's is obsessed with them.  Almost as much as the swing.

Jamie eats yogurt, chicken and veggies for dinner while I cook some chili for us later!  I wish we could eat together as a family, but he's ready to eat the minute we walk through the door and I can't get a meal together that fast.  Plus the hubs isn't usually home until after 6 and there's no way of convincing a hungry toddler to wait.  So for now, we eat after Jamie goes to bed.  It's not ideal, but it works.

Daddy's home!  The hubs and Jamie play and do bathtime while I throw in some laundry, finish dinner and clean up the disaster zone that is our family room. 

Jamie's in bed.  We finally get to eat that chili I've been smelling for 2 hours!  I tackle a pile of clean diapers while we catch up on some TV.

I passed out on the couch.  Don't judge.  I was apparently exhausted.
I'm sure it had nothing to do with my 3am wake up call.
Or that 2nd glass of wine......

There you have it!
A day in my life!

i'm jess said...

Well, I just feel ridiculous telling you your blog wasn't working for me and then I come in on Monday and it works and here we are day 2 with no problems. Yeah, so anyways... loved your day in the life and I'd just like to say I am sooooo happy I don't have to drive on 35 anymore!

happy tuesday!!!

Kristen said...

awesome post! Um, apples and cheese is one of my favorite snacks! And so good for you! :) Jamie is so stinking cute girl! Oh, and coming from a fellow KC area person, I-35 is just a nightmare.... I do not envy that you have to do that daily! YUCK!

KLaw said...

what a great idea! cute post!

Jules said...

This was so much fun to read and I loved the little video of Jamie saying bye to momma.

The snooze button and I are bff's, so I total understand.

It's funny about apples and cheese because I really didn't start eating them as a combo until after I went to The Melting Pot for the first time and realized how yummy it is.

That traffic looks like a mess and I hope the teething issues get resolved soon so you can have a good night's sleep.

Becky said...

Hedgeapples!-the green things that fall from the trees. There is a wives tale that if you put them in your basement they will keep spider crickets away. Also Jamie is adorable :)

dave and jenn said...

This is such a fun idea! I can't wait to try it!

I love apples and cheese. Or apples and peanut butter!

I think those crazy green balls that fall from your tree are called horseapples. At least, that's what I've been told... we have them all over our campus and I always see them smashed on the roads.

Gina said...

Love this idea. I totally want to do it but I'd never remember to keep taking pics.

Oh...and that traffic? Girl, how DO you do it?

Emily said...

Love the idea of taking a picture every hour.. just not sure I could actually remember to take the pictures ha.

Domestic Goddess said...

jaime is getting so stinkin big!!!! i'm a snoozer too...my 2 alarms and J's and I'm still in bed under the covers snuggling with my little june bug!

hope you get some good sleep tonight!

the workaholic momma said...

I'm a big fan of the snooze button too!!!! I LOVE this idea and all of the pics too:)

I hope the teething gets better soon for you guys:)

Allison @ I heart Change said...

I didn't realise you lived so close (in the world) to me. I saw the road picture and though 'hmm, that looks like I35. And it was!'

And I would like to point out the very best way to spend $60 is at the melting pot, while you enjoy dipping apple into melted cheese. See, you are not weird, a restarant serves it!

Gwen said...

I love this post!!!! Too much fun!!! I'm hoping to get a new phone (fingers crossed for this weekend) so I'm totally copying this when I do. LOL!

Jeremy, Censie and Jude said...

I love this post! Will be doing this someday! Thanks for sharing!

Also - I chose you! http://www.buildingourstory.com/2011/11/versatile-blogger-award.html

Nikki said...

Hey! I love this idea. I defintely need to try this out.

Jamie is getting so big saying ball and all those words. I can't wait to see you guys this winter. The kids will have so much fun playing together.

ALin said...

We also have to feed Tucker the minute we walk in the door, and then also ends up having bites of whatever we eat too. Whatever makes them happy, right?

(also? I may steal this idea for my next blog post cause I got nothin'!)

SassyModernMom said...

I LOVE this idea!! I've been reading you forever, but just now feel like I know you so much better:) Might have to do this too!

Holly said...

Hmm, I may have to try doing a post like this at some point. :)

As for apples with cheese, I've never tried that, but I don't think it sounds that terrible. Just odd. :P

Bethany said...

I love this post! So fun :)
I am kind of the opposite with the mornings. I put off waking up as long as I can because once I'm up, I'm up. Snooze buttons freak me out because I'm afraid I'll be late! LOL so when I don't have to scrape my car, I wake up at 6:32 and walk out the door at about 6:52...

I eat cheese and apples too!!! I have since I was a kid :) Not weird to me!
