My Everyday

It's day 15 of the Blog Every Day in May challenge! Secretly, this was my goal from the get go --to make it to day 15, the half way point. And now that I've made it, I'm not sure if I'll continue on with the challenge, because let's face it, sometimes you need a break from this whole blog thing and that's where Saturdays and Sundays come in. 

The day 15 prompt reads, "A day in the life. Include photos throughout your typical day." My typical day is not very exciting. It starts around 5:30. I get up and move zombie-like into the shower and proceed to get ready for work. I have to get up rather early because I have a 45 minute commute and because, well I move really slowly before 10 am. Mornings are not my thing.

From 8-5 I am at work editing proposals, writing past performances for our company, and reading blogs

My evenings vary. I either rush to a hot yoga class after work and then eat a late dinner with Steven that evening as we catch up on our favorite TV shows and just hang out. We may take Huck for a walk, run a few errands, play a board game, or even tackle a house project, but most nights are pretty low key. Lately though, I've been coming home and working a lot outside in the yard --weeding the arbor and taking care of our new tomato plants! 
Yoga ready...oh, that thing behind me on the wall?? Just a built in gun rack IN THE MASTER BEDROOM. No big deal. (Thank you previous, redneck owners for that..........not.)
The tomato plants we picked up earlier this week. I like to pretend I have a green thumb. I just hope these guys survive!
Our arbor. So far we have grapes and raspberries. I'd love to have strawberries as well soon!
And my gardening companions. Herschel likes to taunt Huck by climbing the apple tree and jumping from branch to branch out of his reach. Huck likes to eat bees. 
I know my "typical" day doesn't sound very exciting, but that's how I like it. I wouldn't trade mine and Steven's life together --our little family, our little home, or are little garden --for all the world! I feel pretty blessed to live this life :)

So what about you? What's your typical day look like?

Your master bedroom ceiling is amazing... my Dad would be in heaven with your redneck add in. Maybe you can put something else in its place...

Not gonna lie... I kind of like the gun rack. You just never know. Easy access.

I cannot show my hubby that built in gun rack, he would be jealous LOL! Right now his are just in his office in cases... safe right? NOT!

Did you paint the dresser white? or is it still blue, just the lighting?

your backyard looks awesome! That is so wonderful you have mature raspberries and grapes already!!! I'm sure you will do well with the tomatoes. Can we come and visit you next month when we're in town? The girls are dying to pet herschel and Huck (and see you and Steven of course) :)

Love your workout tank! A 45 minute commute doesn't sound much fun! :(

my guy would be so excited if we had a built-in gun rack. i am not a morning person either. i start work at 7:30 and my commute is 45 minutes on a good day. :(

Pretty pictures. I am quite fine with a non-exciting life, too!

Oh my gosh I LOVE that photo of Herschel in the tree! And your typical day sounds a lot like mine. :-)

Hahahaha, I dig the built in gun rack! Blame that on the redneck in me :) I write this as I'm rocking my Romeos and construction orange sweatshirt, haha :)

I would never have even noticed the gun rack because I was so distracted by that gorgeous ceiling! I'm so envious of those beams! Love it. And congrats on hitting day 15. I couldn't do one week.
