A Day in the Life!

Tomorrow my 100 Follower Giveaway {Celebration!!!} will start!!  I know, you can't wait :)  Neither can I!!!!

I'm linking up with Jessica at Second Grade Nest for her Day in the Life of a Teacher linky party!!

I usually get up early over the summer.  My bf goes to the gym before work, so when he gets up, so do I!  I'm a morning person!!! :)

I start my day in COFFEE and some work.  And usually a blog post :)  Yesterday I was working on my 100 Follower Giveaway and my chevron supply and group tags to match my alphabet! {They will be in my TpT store this afternoon!}

Then I head outside to pick blueberries!!  We have so many I don't know what to do with all of them!  Our blackberries are finally starting ready to pick too.  Yummmmm :)   After that I fed the chickens, collected eggs, and cleaned the coop {yuck!}

My dad and stepmom found me an easel at a yard sale this weekend.  So I stopped by to pick it up!  I love it!!!  I also stopped at the farm and got some fresh corn and favorite!!

After that, I went to do some school shopping.  I tried to only get what I went for......:)  Hobby Lobby had strong magnets for my scrapbook paper magnets.  I also got glitter, so I can make MORE magnets. :)  The ribbon is perfect for those caddies I got at Walmart {for $.97!!!!!)  Annnnnd I got copies made at Staples.  Have you had colored copies made there?  They are expensive!!  The printer was giving me problems, so the nice lady there only charged me for half of what I printed.

I always eat my lunch outside with my little buddy.  That's right.  I had yogurt and corn.  Haha.  And yes, Moo IS drinking out of my cup.  Gross.  Who does he think he is?! #spoiled  I picked flowers to refill my vases.  I love having fresh flowers inside.  I also love those pink lillies.  They are my favorite!!!

Walk time!  Moo decided he didn't want to come.  Some days he does that.  I'll ask him if he wants to go, and he'll run upstairs and hide under the bed.  Crazy pup.  He doesn't like when it's hot!!! 

Do you see that chair?  It was with someone's trash.  I thought, "Hmmm I have plenty of fabric left over to cover that....should I carry it home?  Is it too far?  Is that too weird?  Should I come back and get it?  Should I wait until it's dark?"   I texted my bf a picture.  He said, "You don't need that!"  But I drove over and got it ;)  It's perfect for my reading table!!

After I got my new chair, I did yoga.  Snickers loves yoga.  Or maybe my yoga mat.  He does this everyday.  I always have to work around him!

Next I made dinner.  We had a bean taco salad.  All those tomatoes are from the garden!  It's the first year we've done tomatoes and they are so many of them!!  I also made "healthy" cookies for dessert.  All that's in them is banana, oatmeal, and peanut butter.  So good!  I usually do chocolate chips instead of PB but we didn't have any!

After dinner is craft time!  I laminated my chevron alphabet and group tags.  Then I decorated my table caddies.  See, isn't the ribbon perfect?!  It matches the tags perfectly!!  I added magnets to by glass marbles.  These magnets were so strong, I had to lay them far apart because they kept attaching to each other!!

Then it was time to relax.  Do any of you have the gel polish?  It's ahhh-mazing!  It never chips!  My bf and I have started watching Under the Dome.  We like it so far! 

Don't forget to check back tomorrow for my 100 Follower Giveaway.

  3. Wow your day is totally different than mine! lol
    I live in the Kansas City, Missouri.
    So outside for me is buildings, cars, people, and construction!
    I love the city, though!
    Sounds like you have an amazing garden.
    That would be so nice because I love flowers and veggies.
    Enjoyed reading about your day!

  4. My husband and I are loving Under the Dome. I wasn't sure about it at first, but I love the cliffhangers they keep leaving us with.


  5. This looks like such an amazing day! I'm totally envious!
