Day in the Life
Hi guys! Hope you’ve had a nice week. I’m popping in today with a day in the life post!
The day started with getting Jo up and feeding her. She gets up between 7:00-7:30am. Somedays I let her sleep past that because I’m sleeping and sleep is soooo nice, but then I’m like “we did it again!” –> (Home Alone style lol). She naps SOOO much better during the day if I get her up consistently at the same time, so trying my best. After feeding and situating her I made breakfast for me while unloading the dishwasher.
For breakfast I warmed a pita on our stove…
…and then topped it with eggs + crispy cheese.
Then served it all with an iced latte.
Jo is starting to have moments of independence where she is okay playing alone for like 20 minutes and it’s so nice because I can just sit and relax.
Shortly after eating I put Jo down for her first nap of the day.
For a morning snack I had a cookie.
Jo ended up napping for 2 hours so I got a few blog emails sent and then I was like what do I do with myself? lol. She is just starting to take longer naps and man it’s nice.
When she woke up we went on a quick outing to Kuhl Linscomb (aka the best store in Houston) to find a birthday gift for my best friend’s little girl.
They didn’t have what I was looking for anymore so I ended up ordering the gift off Amazon, but while there I found this bucket bib for Jo….
Then Jo went down for her second nap of the day and I made lunch, which was a burrito bowl with leftover farro + leftover chicken tortilla soup + sour cream + cheese. Yum. Served with some lemonade on the side that is so perfect in summer. Wait is it summer yet lol? Because Houston sureeee has been feeling like it lately.
In the afternoon Jo and I went exploring. I heard there was a labyrinth nearby, so we went and found it. I’m having a moment with labyrinths and now want to go find more of them in Houston.
Then I had a snack and prepped a salad for dinner…
Then we watched Ellen. I was craving something sweet to drink so I made a mocha with milk + chocolate chips + dark cocoa powder + decaf espresso.
Then we watched Ellen until Andrew got home.
I had a couple clients that evening so when Andrew got home I handed over Jojo and I headed to my office.
When I got home Andrew was making wings for us for dinner to go with the salad I’d made earlier. I made the salad dressing with peanut butter and sesame oil and it was so good. Definitely good enough to share on the blog soon. AND WINGS! I’ve never been a wings person until Andrew’s dad made us some during the Superbowl and I liked them so much! They’ve been fun to have in our dinner rotation lately.
After dinner we did Jo’s bedtime routine and got her to bed. I went to bed soon after to read. Currently reading this with my sisters…
I feel asleep but then Jo woke up crying an hour later, which woke me up. She cried for 15 minutes before falling back asleep on her own. But at that point I was hungry again so I got up and had some chocolate milk + Belvita crackers + peanut butter. Lately I’ve been making chocolate milk with just mixing milk + Hershey’s chocolate syrup and it feels like childhood. So fun.
Then back to sleep (until Jo woke up to eat at 10:30pm and 4am).
And that was our day!
Hope y’all have a fun weekend planned!
