DITL Spring 2016

Why not return to regular blogging with a little day in the life post? I love reading these but let me tell you they are NOT easy to do - so many pictures and details. Gah! Thanks, Julia, for hosting!

Wednesday April 13th
BG is 3
Nate is 34
I (just!!) turned 33


Hellooooo. Just sorting through my closet tonight. A local family lost EVERYTHING in a house fire and a friend of theirs was asking for donations. She came by earlier today for a bunch of baby boy things that I had and she mentioned they needed ladies 6-8-10 clothing - exactly the push I needed to spring clean my closet! She's coming by in the morning so I'm sorting, folding and getting it all to the door tonight. 


Found a bunch of baby books and some other odds and ends to give to them!


Dishes. I hate unloading the dishwasher but I need to run another load tonight so empty and reload it is. 


My little buddy is up! Yes, he still rocks a sleep sack in his crib. He's happy and sleeps like a champ. Why mess with a good thing?


Need to wrap up a sports cookie order for drop off later.


Gah! Need to leave soon but a bit of protein before we do! 

And dish unloading. Blahhhhh. 


Made it to music class - we look forward to class every week! He really is a lover of all forms of music. We always have a special lunch out with our music buddies much fun!


Another day. Another public potty. So proud of him for being such a big boy but I really prefer the days of diaper changes in the back of my car over public restroom stops.  


Dropping off some knives to be sharpened and buying a few pieces to add to my gold touch pans. LOVE them so much. 


LUNCH! We met our music class buddies like we always do - but boy oh boy did they seat us at a HUGE table! Then all of a sudden more of my favorite people showed up. A surprise birthday lunch! Thank you girls again...such a fun surprise...


Dropped the ball on pictures but we left lunch and dropped the cookie order off then head home for nap time. BG fell asleep in the car - not a good sign for nap time. 

I get to work on my latest project - cleaning grout. I purchased a new product to help me and it's definitely working! This is the laundry/garage door area so super gross grout in no time at all and it seems to be working on the first line at least!


Alarm goes off on my phone - reminding me to send Karen dinner. BG has a cough/runny nose so we can't bring her a homemade meal - she chose pizza thankfully so order her favorite and a special dessert to arrive with it too!


BG has been up and we've been playing like crazy - I give him two options for dinner and he chooses breakfast for dinner. Waffles with a PB smear...yum!


Outside time before an early bedtime. He only had an hour nap (usually 2.5-3 - dreaded car nap!) so he's wiped and the fresh air is making both of us happy!


BG goes down. I pour a glass of wine and wait for a girlfriend to arrive to chat about Beautycounter. 


She's here so we chat and I look through what I'm going to order. I'm trying to eliminate unhealthy everything this year...not cheap but worth every penny to know we're wearing/using/ingesting the best we can. 


My friends leaves and I'm instantly texting another girlfriend about what I ended up ordering. 


Time to clean up a bit and prep for playgroup. We're hosting which is awesome but also means I need lots of coffee ready to go - and usually a tasty bite or two. I decide cinnamon rolls will fit the bill! Bravo is on keeping me company. 


Realize my Amazon package never did arrive even though it was guaranteed by tonight. Grrrrr. Thankfully it's not a HUGE deal but still annoying. 


End the day the same way it started - folding clothing. I don't mind sorting, washing and drying our clothes - but the folding and putting away is not my favorite. 

Signing off of this DITL until next time...

Spoiler alert - another birthday surprise! Cinnamon rolls got pushed to the side when these arrived with my sweet friends in the am! I've been so spoiled this week! 


  1. Hi fellow Charlottean! I found you through the DITL roundup, and clicked on your blog since it said you were also in NC. Read some of your older posts and I recognize a friend of mine (Emily) in some pictures! Small world!

  2. aw what sweet friends you have, happy birthday! Where did you get your grout cleaners? Ours never did come completely clean after the move-in ( that pesky red dirt)...

  3. Oh my gosh - such a busy, productive day with staying up so late. I would never be able to do it. And what great friends to surprise you for your birthday!
