Day in the Life (1.17.19)

Monday, January 21, 2019

Happy (cold) Monday!  It's a crisp 22 degrees Monday morning as I write this blog post, and I'm watching The Today Show show clips of people in the north east shoveling snow and ice!  So crazy!!

I woke up last Thursday morning and decided I would do a day in the life post, so that's why I started a little late in my picture taking.
 It'd be nice if this were the actual time I woke up, but my alarm went off at 5 and I got out of bed at 5:15.

 This is what I was doing between those times--watching the local news and reading blogs.

 My royals podcast comes out on Thursdays, so I always listen to it while I get ready.  The hosts are hilarious!

 I was doing a special activity with my students that day, so I needed to wear something comfortable/could spill food on.  I definitely don't dress like this on a normal work day!  I also wore my hair straight for something special after school--which you'll see later!

 Two things about this photo:
1. We are getting all new windows in our school building (it's very old), so this is currently what my view looks like.  The two end pieces will be windows that open, and apparently the window people won't be putting those in until March...or so they say 😜
2. We're getting ready to read The Devil's Arithmetic and it begins with a Seder Meal, so we had one in our class to prepare for the novel!  My students know nothing about the Jewish religion or even what a Seder is, so we had our own mini ceremony, and I did that all day Wednesday and Thursday.

 I have bus duty in the afternoons in the girls' gym.

 I had a massage after school!!!!  This is the after picture haha!  Dustin got me a gift certificate for my birthday late October, and I was saving it for Christmas break.  Well, I never made an appointment and then I started thinking that I probably needed to save it to closer when the baby is due because I probably would be a little stressed.  Well, after I realized I would be spending two entire days doing a Seder meal with my students, I booked my hot stones massage after the second day because I knew I would need to relax, and it was MUCH NEEDED!  If anyone wants to treat a new mom to a massage, you can buy me this πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

 I told Dustin he was cooking that night so when I got home, he was prepping to grill turkey burgers.  While he did that, I took a shower to get all the oil off my body.  I should have washed my hair then, but I didn't and you'll see why I regretted that haha

 I read a few more blogs while catching up on New Amsterdam while Dustin was cooking.

 Dustin wanted me to snap a picture of his plate.  Those are cauliflower tots we ate!!

Then I read a little more in my book, Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owns.  I'm going to talk about it forever, but it was amazing and y'all all need to read it!

This is what time I thought I was getting in bed.  But after I laid there for about 15 minutes, I realized I needed to wash my hair.  So I did ha!  I didn't get in bed until after 10:30 that night.


  1. What a busy but chill day! Love these types of posts.

  2. I love day in the life posts! It's currently 2 degrees here and feels like -14 with the wind chill! Enjoying the day off inside!

  3. I can't wait to read that book, but am patiently waiting for my library hold to come in. Thanks for the tip on the podcast. I love all things royal, and hadn't heard of that one. Great post! :)

  4. Ha! I love that you got out of bed to wash your hair! I can't sleep with dirty hair either!

  5. I love these types of posts. It's so fun getting a glimpse into people's everyday lives.

  6. Haha! It's 9.13pm here in Australia and I said to myself "I'll just read Sarah's blog and then I'll go wash my hair! There's nothing like the smell of clean fresh hair on your pillow. I love your blog!

  7. I just love posts like this! That is so awesome that the Mr. cooks! Mr. Nine would not make anything other than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, LOL! Good thing I enjoy cooking. Ahhh, a massage sounds so good right about now. Have a great day

  8. Day in the Life posts are the best. I haven't had a turkey burger in ages and that looks gooooood!

  9. We did a Seder meal in 6th grade and it was so much fun! I loved immersing myself in a different culture and I felt like I learned a lot from it. It made a huge impression on me and it's one of the things I remember most about junior high!

  10. I am the same after a massage too - even when you just have one on your back it gets right up into your hair. Do you find too that where your face is squashed through that hole in the bed you 'come out' with your makeup smeared all over your face (or is that just me haha!). Love posts like these and I am excited to follow your journey as you wait for your little one to join your family! J xx
