Hello and Happy Tuesday!!
I am back today to blog, “A Day in the Life” post!
Before I get to that, let’s talk about this fun, sassy look! Summer is not over yet!!
Grab these cute shorts here: White Shorts
Grab this top at Southern Charm Boutique if you live local! OR grad a similar top here: Fringe Top
Find these shoes here: Nude Heels
Shop my pink, heart shaped, sunglasses here: Sunglasses
You will be set for a night out with the girls, weekend beach trip, date night, etc! You can ditch the heels and take some fun beach photos in this look with friends or your significant other!
Now, onto my “Day in the Life” post!
If you’re new to these kinds of posts, let me explain! I basically pick a random, ordinary day on the calendar in advance, that has no specific plans and I document that specific day. Now, if plans occur before the day arrives, great! If not, that’s also great! I truly like for these posts to be a real “day in the life.”
These are my favorite posts to read on other blogs and I know these will be my favorite posts to look back at and reread one day!
So today, I am blogging what a day in the middle of the summer looks like for me! I documented yesterday- Monday, July 29th!
I taught an online class at 5:30 this morning, so I woke- up at 5:15! I forgot that I was documenting this day so I failed to screenshot the time when I woke- up but I remembered in the middle of class!
Class was over by 6 so I went back to sleep for about an hour! (I stayed up til midnight teaching the night prior!)
I woke- up around 7 and had a bit to spend with Harry before he went to work, then I went back to teaching at 7:30. I taught 2 more classes and I was finished by 8:30.
After class, I cuddled with Ace on the couch for a bit! I was still pretty tired from staying up late and waking up early!
Next, I made breakfast! I made prosciutto, tomato, basil, and scrambled eggs on toast!
One of my favorite things about summer, is having time to make a good breakfast! Goodness knows when school starts back, I will not have this kind of time!!
Disclaimer: This is the only good meal that you will find on this post today! HA!
I also had a cup of coffee with breakfast! I’ve been loving the Starbucks Blonde Roast lately. It is unsweetened and only has 5 calories per serving!! I add a splash of silk milk! I only drink cold coffee! Weird or no?
After breakfast, I had my quiet time! I pray and read my devotion. I’ve already began praying for the students on my class roster for this upcoming year!
When I make quiet time like this each and every day, God really does help change my entire perspective for the day.
Next, I worked on the blog for a bit! You can find yesterday’s post here: Yay to 28!
After blogging, I worked on some school related things! I wrote things in my planner for the upcoming school year, typed out my class schedule for next year, etc!
Find my planner here: 2019- 2020 Planner
Then, I decided I should put on some real clothes for the day! Ha! Another bonus about summer break, is not having to “get ready” everyday! lol
I promise I made my bed after this!
I bought this black romper at Express years ago! You can find a similar romper from Express, here: Classic Black Romper
I never really ate lunch on this day! Just snacked on a protein bar, pretzels & pimiento cheese! I ate breakfast later than usual on this day!
Then, I called my PaPaw to wish him a Happy Birthday!! We’re going to celebrate his birthday this upcoming weekend!
I spent some time in the backyard with Ace!
I worked on my computer a bit longer! We just bought a new computer this past weekend. I had my previous computer for nearly 10 years and it’s been giving me LOTS of problems lately because its old. Since I teach online, I needed something more reliable so my birthday present this year was a computer!
I’ve never cared about having the most expensive computer because I use it very minimal- teaching and writing blog posts!
I bought this new computer for a GREAT price and it has everything I need! It’s light weight, easy to transport, just what I needed!
You can find my computer here: HP Notebook
By this point, it was dinner time! Harry had to work late today and I had plans for the evening so we were not going to be able to eat dinner together.
I had a bowl of cereal LOL and Harry had leftovers once he got home!
Around 6:30 that evening, I left home to go to Walmart! I just made a quick stop to buy a few things I needed to work in my classroom this week. Is it really almost time to go back to school? #stayforeversummer
Then, I headed to my sweet friend, Emily’s house!
She hosted the CUTEST party for the finale of The Bachelorette!!
I mean just look..! She’s the best!!
We had a fun time watching, laughing, talking, and just hanging out!
Girl nights are always good for the soul!
After the show, I headed back home! I got home around 10:30 and got ready for bed!
I sent some “cards” to my VIP Kid students who I had taught that day to basically say, “great job today!”
I was asleep by 11:00- 11:15!
And that is a summer time “day in the life!”
Hope y’all enjoyed! How do all of my teacher friends/ work from home friends spend their day?
Have a great day!
