Day in the Life

Happy Tuesday y'all! I meant to link up with Andrea last Tuesday for Show and Tell Tuesday and ended up forgetting to document my day on Monday. Last week was our first week back after fall break and it was a little crazy, but I actually remembered to document my day last Wednesday thanks to the reminders I had set all day on my phone. :)

Today I'm sharing a little look into what a typical day looks like around here...

I usually get up around 4-4:15, but I struggled big time last week and just couldn't stop hitting the snooze button. I got up between 4:40-4:50 most days last week.

I finished getting ready around 5:30 or so.

After getting ready, I headed to the kitchen to get my lunch together and make my coffee. I ended up leaving around 5:40 that morning.

I got to school around 6:15 and got right to work.

I finished putting up a few of my Halloween decorations. My kids LOVE this little area.

My kids got to school around 8 and we spent our morning doing a little whole group reading and math.

I have planning and lunch back-to-back from 10:45-12. I spent my planning making copies and grading a few assignments and then headed down the hall for lunch. All of the 3rd grade teachers eat lunch together everyday in one of the classrooms.

After lunch we had small group time, recess, and science and then it was time to load buses and head home.

After putting my students on their buses, I did a few things in my classroom, and headed home around 3:10.

I went home and changed into my gym clothes, and then headed to meet my sister at the gym. We worked out for about an hour and then headed home.

I was WORN OUT and still had to do some grading and things when I got home so I treated myself to some Starbucks. ;)

I got a Coconut Milk Caramel Mocchiato and it was just what I needed.

When I got home, Chase and I watched an episode of Chicago Fire.

And I ate some leftover jambalaya from the night before. I made it in the crock pot on Tuesday night and we ate on it for a few days. It was SO good and Whole 30 approved.

I snapped this picture at 9:16 right as we were headed to bed. This is actually late for us, we usually go to bed between 8-8:30. Notice all of my Day in the Life reminders that I had set so that I wouldn't forget to document my day. I have the WORST memory so this was really the only way that I could make myself remember to take pictures throughout the day. :)

I hope y'all have the BEST day!


  1. I always have to remind myself about a day in the life post, too! What is that handy container your food was in at lunch? Does that keep it warm for you until it's time to eat?

  2. Love this little day in the life post.
    Our schedules are so similar that I wondered for minute if I was reading about my own post?!
    Getting to school early is one of my favorite things to do.
    I love that you get there early and get to go home nearly right at the end of the day!
    Also, I love that you go to bed around 8-8:30. We shoot for that, but we typically make it there around 9.
