A Photo an hour

Today I am excited to share with y'all a deeper glimpse into my daily life. I am always interested/nosy to see what other lives are like. So, I thought it would be fun to share a glimpse into mine. I documented my day last Tuesday which turned out to be not a typical day due to the snow! I got this idea from Steph at Southern Mess who is holding a link-up today for A Photo an Hour. Here we go....

6 am
Rise and Shine! Getting ready for work in a hurry this morning. In love with Benefit's makeup kits. I'm a bit of a Benefit junkie right now. It makes getting ready so easy since I don't have to think about the steps!

7:30 am
Early school Response to Intervention (RTI) meeting at the middle school. I love RTI but early morning meeting times almost take a lot of the joy out of it.

Working against a tight deadline so pulling a student to work with right when they get into homeroom. Thankful that most of the middle school kiddos have been extra nice so far this year. A joy of working for state- this test kit is super old. I even have scoring software on a floppy disk.

IQ test scoring time!

Multitasking at it's finest. Writing reports, checking e-mail and stalking the latest weather forecast.

11am- 12pm
Working in the file room to review student files and planning for the next few week's meetings. I do a lot of digging through files and records to help teachers understand previous evaluations for interventions and classroom modifications. Not going to bore you will multiple pics of my computer screen :) I did get a chance to go talk to some teachers and observe a student during this time too.

Early release due to snow on the horizon. My job requires a lot of travel between schools and this crate was the best investment. You never know when you may need to to an IQ test or evaluate someone's reading level on the fly. Feeling super nerdy that I match my test kit.

*If you want to know what a full day of work looks like. Just add 2 more meetings, another testing session and a few more hours sitting in front of my computer. It's not a glamorous job but I love what I do!*

Kroger stop on the way home. Impulse by of his and hers sodas since we don't keep them in the house. Also, I don't believe the latest Yoplait commercials. Chobani is so much better and natural. Scored these on sale  $10 for 10.

Time to hit the gym. The run with my running group was canceled because of the weather. A quick solo run on the treadmill to keep up with my mileage.

Joe came home early due to the weather. Watching Ellen and getting the stare down from Charlie while he continues to work.

Making dinner. We had sweet and sour chicken with quiona. I start to get hungry around 5:30 every evening. I try to hold off on eating until 6pm. Like tonight, that doesn't always happen. I am a huge fan of the early bird special.

Enjoying an after dinner treat while catching up on our favorite shows. Addicted to The Following. I'm glad to see it back for a second season.

That's all folks! Hope you enjoyed a snapshot into my life currently. :)



  1. That dinner looks so good, I definitely need the recipe!! I was so excited about this link up but my week ended up being hours upon hours of watching Game of Thrones and Newsroom... I'm kind of excited for these snow days to end so I can get back into a schedule.

  2. This is such a fun idea! I missed the link up but this makes me want to do something similar! I always find myself starving by 5 and have to try my best to hold off on dinner until 6. For me sometimes it's better to go ahead and have an early dinner so I don't start snacking and get full on junk foods!

  3. First of all, I love those Too Faced eye palettes. So pretty. And your job sounds really interesting. Thanks for linking up with us!

  4. A floppy disk? That is crazy! I need to invest in some more Benefit stuff. I use their moisturizer and I love it!

  5. mmm the sweet & sour chicken looks/sounds good!!

  6. Hello, I am visiting from the link up. Your day looks about like mine, lots of computer time thanks to work. Is your dog a goldendoodle? We have been thinking about getting one as our next dog when the time comes. He is so cute!

  7. This is such a cute idea! Makes me we want to do something similar!
