A Day...

I've seen people post about their daily routines so I thought it would be fun to share what a typical day for me is like. Prepare yourself for all the excitement I get to experience on an everyday basis :)

I wake up anywhere between 7:30 and 8:15 every morning, and it all depends on if I am riding my bike to work that day. Today I was going to ride so I got up at 7:30, but I looked outside and it was raining (which was not in the forecast last night when I checked). I ran out the door at 8:40 and was at my desk by 8:57!

I always eat breakfast at my desk, usually by 10:00. Today I had a really sad breakfast - a granola bar and banana.

I spend a little bit of time checking my emails and favorite websites, like Suri's Burn Book, Hip2Save, and Facebook, usually while I'm finishing my breakfast. I don't spend a lot of time doing this because I always have a steady flow of assignments to work on.

My office is right in front of the kitchen and common area so I am constantly interrupted by my co-workers, wanting to talk or gossip. I also have the responsibility of answering the main door, signing for packages, and directing visitors to where they need to be. Sometimes it makes me want to rip my hair out, but most of the time it's not too much of a hassle. Today, I've already answered the door 4 times, and it's only 10:30!

Work, work, work...

At 1:30 I'm hungry again! Time for my lunch. I had a Healthy Choice Fresh Mixers pasta today. I hadn't tried these before, and I wasn't sure what to expect. It turned out to be okay, but not nearly enough. Since eating took all of 10 minutes, I decided to drive over to Target just so I can get out of the office.

I bought some cute Valentine's to give to my friends at work and a few surprise treats for Chris. We are not doing gifts or anything, but I wanted to at least have a card and some candy for him. How come every trip to Target ends in me walking out with something, especially when I planned on buying nothing?!

I already told you that I am addicted to Oreo's, and I flipped out over these Birthday Cake Oreo's! I can't wait to try them for dessert!

Back at work and it's too boring to document...

Finally, it's 6:00 and I'm free! One day down, 4 more to go!

We decided on Thai takeout for dinner. We really do cook in A LOT, but not tonight. Besides, I need time to do my cookie decorating. I meant to take a picture of my food, but was so hungry that I completely forgot.

I spent wayyyyyyy too long trying to make cute cookies and I've decided that they are just not my thing. I'm not very good at the whole royal icing thing so I just covered up all the mistakes with sprinkles! I've officially made a mess of the kitchen.

Time to get settled in front of the television - The Bachelor and Hawaii Five-0 are our must watch shows on Monday night. We also record Alcatraz and Smash but will watch those later in the week.

Yup, it's finally bed time. I made it to 12:00 tonight and I'm already regretting staying up so late. It's going to be hard to get up in the morning! If I had the choice, I would've been in be a few hours earlier. Goodnight!


I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into my day. Seriously, I'm living the life...lol! By the way, all of my pictures were taken using Instagram. I've had this app forever, but I just realized that my profile was set to private all of this time. I made it public and would love to have you follow along and follow you also! My username is sweetteadiaries.

And, Happy Valentine's Day to everyone! I hope it's filled with lots of sweets, love, and pink presents!

What a great idea to recap your day :o) Wow~ How awesome to live close to work...I love that since I have been working at this amazing dental office, I am only 3 to 5 minutes to work! Your cookies look yummy with the sprinkles :o) (We love to watch Hawaii 5-O too :o)

Blessings & Aloha!
Thank you dear friend for stopping by and your greetings for our 30th Anniversary! After being away from my blog for sooo long, I was not sure if I would get visits to my post. Yes, you are right, it is an exciting year for us :o)
