What is a day in the life of you, really?
I honestly live a very typical and unoriginal life. I hope that this post doesn't bore you to tears. Haha I don't know the best way to do this... probably just a little schedule. Here goes nothing...
7:30-9:30- Sometime in between there I decided to wake up. Usually depends on how late I am up the night prior.. obviously.
9:30-9:40- Force myself to get out of bed. I usually check my email, instagram, and respond to any texts (I am pro at falling asleep on people while texting).
9:40- 10:00- Go downstairs, and pour myself a bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats. I like to wait for everyone to be gone in my house before I venture downstairs. I enjoy the quiet. I also don't turn on any lights throughout my morning routine. I love the natural light in the morning. It is the perfect start to the day.
10:00- 10:30- I get back into bed, grab my computer, and read all my daily blogs. There are a lot of them, so it takes a little while. This is my absolute favorite part of my day hands down. It allows me to connect with all you lovely bloggers, and it is always a source of inspiration for the day. It gives me ideas for what I want to do each day, or keeps me thinking throughout the day. I am so grateful to follow along with so many inspiring ladies.
10:30- 11:30- By now I usually decide to shower, and what not. Get ready for the day I guess. My second favorite part of the day is choosing what I am going to wear that day. I love putting together outfits. I usually don't wear the outfits I put together though. Unless I am going somewhere in the morning, I usually just put on some gym shorts and a band tee after I shower. I pick out an outfit every day though, just in case I do something fun in the evening, and because it is a way to keep my creative juices flowing.
11:30- 12:00- This is complete free time. Sometimes I clean. Sometimes I read. Sometimes I edit pictures. It all depends on what I feel like doing that day.
12:00- 12:30- This is when I decide to eat lunch. A typical Shelby lunch consists of a pb&j sandwich, and a Go-Go Applesauce (at least lately). Have you guys ever had those applesauce things?! I am seriously obsessed! After I make a delicious pb&j on multi-grain bread, I sit down in my favorite chair, turn on the TV, and watch the latest episode of Ellen. You guys, I am OBSESSED with Ellen. She can make any bad day good, I promise.
12:30- 2:30- This is more free time. It seriously changes every day, soo it all depends. A lot of the time I will use this time to update my blog. That usually takes me a little while.
2:30- 6:00- This is when I go to work. I work every single weekday, so my schedule is very consistent. I work for and after school program in an elementary school. It is literally the best job in the entire world. This is my third year working there, and these kids have complete hold of my heart. I don't know what I would do without them. It is the one part of my day where I can check everything that is going on in my life at the door, and just hang out with these awesome kids. Today we made this stuff called Moon Dough, and my kids DIED over it. I felt pretty good about myself. Haha
6:00- 9:00- MORE free time. Man, I didn't realize how much free time I have. I am usually starving by the time I get home, so that is definitely a must. The majority of the night is spent hanging out with my family. We usually are watching some kind of TV show together. Other than that I am usually reading, or in an intense conversation with my bestie Emma. For reals, it is part of the routine. I usually am checking social media and what not. It is just great.
9:00- whatever time of the night or early morning- This is when I venture back to my room, and back to my lovely bed. I usually spend the night listening to music, checking social media, and reading. Just something nice and relaxing before bed. It's whatever. I quite enjoy this quiet time at the end of the night. I get to start of my days quiet, and end the same way.
So as you all can see, my life is in no way glamorous. Obviously, somedays things are spiced up a little bit. I will go out with friends in the evening, explore the mountains in the morning, or plan a photo shoot or two. I am not boring all the time. I applaud any of you who made it through that entire thing. As a reward here is a video of One Direction singing with puppies...
