A Day in the Life--January 5, 2016

Wednesday, January 6, 2016

Remember next Thursday that Victoria and I are hosting a link up of book reviews and/or recommendations, so we can make our reading lists for 2016!  I've got two new books to share, and then I'm going to review some of my favorites that I read in 2015.

On our first day back to school last year, I did a Day in the Life post (click here) and so I decided to do it again to see how much has changed (or hasn't changed haha) in a year!

Wake up time is much earlier this year than last year!  Don't worry, this is just twice a week that I do this and only because it's very hard to work out in the afternoons while I'm in grad school.  And because I woke up so early yesterday morning, I had to go to bed earlier Monday night to prepare myself, so I DVR'd The Bachelor to watch it the next night.

Headed to my 5 AM class at the gym--yay!  (No pictures after since I hobbled back into the house and straight to the shower.)

A quick breakfast of my Special K Protein bar and Spark while I'm getting ready.

During my planning period I had to have a snack of almonds because I was starving!  I also had a few lists going of things to accomplish and the blue book is the novel we start reading on Monday.

I went over components of a narrative essay today and how it differs from a short story.

Then I was able to leave school before 3:30!  I went home straight after school yesterday but the whole time I was driving, I kept trying to think of something that I was forgetting to do or if I had somewhere to be.  It's been so unnatural lately for me to be free after school, but I didn't argue!  Grad school starts back Monday--yuck!

When I got home I lit my candle, turned on Friends, put away dry dishes, and washed breakfast and lunch dishes.

Then I separated some laundry and decided to do two small loads in order to stay on top of things.  I try to do one load of laundry every day or every other day.

Then I watched TV for an hour and a half!!!!!!!!

My husband got home at 6 and I snapped this of him while he's unloading his massive lunch box.

We ate a quick pizza dinner--by the way, the DiGiorno's Pizzeria Thin Crust Spinach and Mushroom pizza is the healthiest pizza I can find in the frozen foods section.  Half of the pizza is 500 calories!  We eat dinner every night at the dinner table--it's something that's extremely important to me.  No supper in front of the TV!!

This is 1/4th of the pizza!

Then my friend Rachel from school brought me a Starbucks K cup to try since she saw me with a cup of coffee on Monday.  I used to hate coffee so much and then I recently turned 28 and now like it!  And my husband says what I like isn't coffee, but lattes and mochas from Starbucks are totally coffee.

Then Janie called me and told me she found 6 foot Christmas trees on sale for $7 at Walmart!  I had her buy me two and then found out that they were only $5!!  FIVE DOLLARS Y'ALL!  I will find places to put these trees next year!

Then I watched The Bachelor from Monday night.  Lace = crazy!  And Ben is so cute.

This guy watched it too without admitting it haha!

After The Bachelor was over, I took a quick shower (what I do every night before bed) and did my quiet time.  I'm doing the Genesis study in the She Reads Truth app right now.

I would love to say I slept great last night--especially since I had been up since 4:15--but Dustin woke up in the middle of the night and had low blood sugar, so I was up for that.  Thankfully he woke up though and told me!

Linking up with Jenn today!
