A Day In My Life

Since my life is very different than it was the last time I did one these posts I thought I would give you guys a sneak peek into our daily lives right now. It is fun, crazy and by 8pm I am ready for bed!

6:30am – Alarm goes off. Yes, I set an alarm still but 50% of the time Avery or Chloe are up before it. Go downstairs to breakfast in the crockpot (steel-cut oats).


6:45am – Avery gets up. We eat breakfast. Breakfast went unpictured but was enjoyed with coffee too of course.

7:00am – Clean up from breakfast. Chloe wakes up.

7:00-8:00am – Feed Chloe, clip girl’s nails, Avery has some TV time and we hang out until Chad leaves to work.

8:00-9:00am – Get myself and the girls ready. Not too much to do today since we are going for a run.

9:00-10:00am – 4.5km run with the girls which is NO joke! And a stop at the playground then to get the mail.

10:00-11:00am – I shower & get ready then feed Chloe, play and read books. I find getting ready for me is key, even if I am not going far I feel much more human!

11:00am-Noon – Make lunch while Avery plays with Play-Doh and Chloe watches from her bouncy chair and eventually falls asleep. Lunch today is a snack plate Avery and I share:

Noon-2pm – Girls nap and I get one or two things done on my list, then relax if nobody woke up early. Today, Chloe woke up half way through her nap but I got her back down. I planted some flowers, swept the floor then made a smoothie and watched HGTV.

2-2:30pm – Feed Chloe, make Avery a snack and pack up to head out for the afternoon. I always aim for an afternoon outing of some kind. Today we head to Sunnybrook Farm but first stop at buy cupcakes from our favourite place.

2:30-4:30pm – Cupcakes and Sunnybrook Farm!

4:30pm – Home before Chloe is too mad and hungry – YAY! Feed Chloe, Avery gets to watch a show and I start supper prep.

5:15-6:00pm – Chad gets home and goes to workout (he works out 2-3 nights a week after work). I make supper. Like breakfast it went unpictured. There is a 50/50 chance Chloe is fussy during this time which makes it interesting but we always survive!

6:15-7:00pm – Eat supper and clean up.

7:00-7:45pm – I feed Chloe, Chad baths Avery then we swap, he baths Chloe I get Avery ready for bed and read books, then he joins us. It is a crazy time some nights.

8:00pm – Our goal time right now to have Chloe asleep too. So far we do good but usually she falls asleep in the bouncy chair so we are going to get her into her crib sooner.

8:00-10:00pm – Our time, we do different things, tonight we did garage sale prep, then watched TV.

10:00-10:30pm – Chad gives Chloe a dream feed bottle and I pump.

10:45pm – Lights out!


A day in the life…

I always find these posts fun to read (I am nosey) so every once in awhile I get organized enough to share a peek into our crazy life. Or not so crazy, Monday – Friday is pretty boring around here most weeks! H

5:30am – Alarm goes off…most days I am good to go at this time but not always! I grab whatever workout clothes I touch first and head downstairs to workout. I usually do a 21 Day Fix Extreme workout or a Beachbody on Demand workout – anything under 35 minutes 🙂


6:00am – I make my way back upstairs to get ready before I get Chad and Avery up.

6:20am – Chad makes breakfast and coffee, I get Avery up and we chill out watch the morning news, eat breakfast and drink coffee – I actually LOVE this part of our day, no rushing around!


7:00am – Time to move! Avery watches ONE cartoon, Chad gets ready, I pack up for the day.

It is the Friday before Costco and our fridge looks pretty sad making packing lunches a ton of fun 😉


8:00am – We leave the house, drop Avery off at dayhome and go to work. We are very lucky to work next to each other and carpool 95% of the time.

Work time!


10:00am – Snack time! Apples and peanut butter today 🙂


11:45am – I get ready to head to yoga for my lunch break. My yoga studio is only a 5 minute walk from my office so I take advantage of their lunch classes.


12:00pm Yoga time!


1:15pm – Back at work, for some lunch and more work…


Not sure you guys wanted to see more computer photos since it was all I did all afternoon.

5:00pm – Home time!

5:20pm – We pick up Avery and head to grab Subways since we have hockey tickets for 7pm.


7:00pm At the hockey game, poor Avery came down with a cold and we took her out still and it is freezing out!



10:00pm – Game goes into overtime and Avery falls asleep


11:00pm – Finally home and it is lights out for us!
