6:30 AM to 6:30 PM {Monday}

Hey, hey!

Here’s a recap from our day today– approximately 6:30 AM to 6:30 PM. Ready? GO!

6:30: I wake up, head downstairs, and pour myself a glass of iced coffee. Mal is getting ready for school. Quinn is still sleeping, and I’m not sure what to do with myself. I’m rarely ever awake before him!

My laptop is starting to die (it actually kicked the bucket for good tonight), so I saved a bunch of the important stuff onto an external hard drive.


7:15 AM: Quinn wakes up. (Wow, he slept late!) We cuddle on the couch together. He eats a banana and drinks some milk while I enjoy a bowl of crock-pot steel-cut oatmeal with almond butter.

He even gets to meet a Snapping Turtle up close and personal!

While there, we also visit the chickens. Cluck cluck!

12:00 PM: We stop by Gunther Tooties for coffees. Quinn falls asleep on the drive home, so I put him down for a nap.

12:15 PM: We’re hungry when we get home, so I break out some snacks.

1:00 PM: Lunch is served. I make bacon and cheese omelets and root vegetable fries for everyone. (My sister is 7 months pregnant and craved eggs and fries, so that’s exactly what we had!)

2:00 PM: Our new sideboard is delivered. It looks even better in person! I say goodbye to my sister and Matthew. I clean up the house and eat some Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies.

2:45 PM: Quinn wakes up from his nap. We cuddle on the couch and watch Paw Patrol. Then, he eats lunch.

3:30 PM: We take Murphy for a walk.

4:15 PM: We arrive home. Mal gets home 5 minutes later. We chat. I fill him in on our day. We play with Quinn.

5:15 PM: I head down to the basement to do a workout.

5:45 PM: I take a shower and then whip up dinner.

6:30: PM: Time to eat! I eat a roasted acorn squash with leftover root veggie fries, chickpeas, rice, broccoli, and Mama Pea’s “Mmm Sauce” on top. (It might not look pretty, but it was deeeelicious!)

Questions of the Day

What were you doing at 6:30 AM today?

What were you doing at 6:30 PM today? 


  1. My day starts with my nugget at 5:45, then I am off to work until 3. I pick up Avery and we take a walk and play. Dinner and bath time and she is in bed by 7. I pour a glass of wine and read a book. Lights out by 9!

  2. Read through the comments and I must have been the only one sleeping at 630 am! 🙂 At 630 pm, I was folding three loads of laundry and changing the sheets on my bed.

    Looks like you had a nice day!

    1. @Cate: No kids at my house and I work a little bit later shift (I’m SO much more productive after everyone leaves!) so at 0630 I’m trying to roll myself out of bed. If I were on my game, I’d be up exercising…

      1. Me too! Set the alarm this morning to work out, but hit snooze. I’m lucky I don’t have to be in as early as others, which is great for this night owl! 🙂

  3. 6:30am I was getting my little man out of his crib
    6:30pm We were having play time before bed 🙂

    This is typically what we are doing at these times every day, we love routine!

  4. It’s fun to see what a day in your life is like with a toddler (I don’t have kids, but maybe someday). 6:30 am yesterday: Getting ready for work. 6:30pm yesterday: eating baked chicken parm from Skinny Taste and watching Parenthood on tv.

    1. Yum! I bet I would love that recipe. I love anything from Skinny Taste! And, of course, I love Parenthood! 🙂 Did you see my interview with Kristina Braverman earlier this Fall?

  5. 6:30- stopped at Starbucks for a Caffe Americano on my way to work #treatyoself
    Work, after work meeting, 20 min treadmill run at work, let out the pup, off to the gym for a metabolic workout, home to make some dinner, then relaxation!

  6. Your days look like so much fun with Quinn. I hope to some day be able to be with my kids during the day. 6:30 am – getting ready for work 6:30 pm – making shrimp & qunioa for dinner while sipping wine!

  7. So fun to see a day in your life!

    Yesterday at 6:30am I was turning off my alarm and choosing to stay in bed a little longer. So hard to get out of bed at this time of year!

    At 6:30pm, I was wrapping up work and settling down for dinner (chicken / broccoli cheesy casserole. TASTY!).

  8. I would love to see a post on how you’ve changed your diet to more vegetarian base and if you can tell a difference in your digestion! From someone who is always looking for ways to feel her best I would be interested!!

    and how lucky to have the little one sleep until 7:15!!

  9. 6:30 AM – asleep, 15 minutes before my alarm goes off for work (unless I’m doing an AM workout).

    6:30 PM – heading to my parent’s house for dinner after a quick4 mile taper run for the Philly Marathon this weeken!

  10. What a super fun sister day you had! I love spending time with my sisters <3

    6:30am – Driving to work after finishing 5am class at CrossFit Acadia.

    6:30pm – Laying in bed with my 2 sweet kids for snuggle time before lugging them off to their own beds for sleep.

  11. What toy is Quinn playing with in the 8am picture?? I feel like my daughter would love that! She is totally into cars and trucks!

  12. 6:30am- Getting our coats on to drive to daycare and then work.
    6:30pm- Bath time for the little ones

    Did Quinn eat anything between the early morning banana and his lunch at 2:45pm?

  13. 6:30 a.m. Watching Sesame Street with my 18-month old twins before I got ready for work.
    6:30 p.m. Eating dinner with my family.

  14. I was on my way home from the gym at 6:30am to get the kids ready for school and my husband and I were at the Joe Andruzzi Foundation Gratitude Gala at Gillette at 6:30pm…great event for an amazing cause, but totally wiped out today!
