You’ve heard me say it before, but I have to say it again. I think I was meant to live in the south. I love those beautiful houses with their wrap around porches, monograms, and all that wonderful southern hospitality!
Another reason for my desire to be a Southern belle and all the reasons that I keep showing my husband houses in Alabama is due to all the wonderful bloggers from that region. You already learned about my love for Marianne, but I have all sorts of love for another AL blogger know as Brooke from Blueprint Bliss!
Ms. Brooke is sweet as can be and has an amazing sense of style that keeps me coming back for more and more and more. (you get the idea) She blogs about all her favorites in the interior design world and works as a commercial interior designer along with doing jobs in her very own home as well.
So sit back, relax and enjoy I day in the life of Brooke:
5 am- My day always starts off at this time and in these shoes...
6:15 am- Arrive home from my run and start getting ready for work. In the meantime, I fold a load of clothes and check a few emails. I take a few minutes to read a devotional in Streams in the desert.
7:15 am- Out the front door with a banana and cup of coffee in hand.
7:35 am- Arrive at the office (I work for an Architecture firm) and into my cubicle (glamorous, I know). I spend a few minutes checking emails, drinking coffee, talking to coworkers. Disclaimer- I am usually not this messy. I am what my husband calls a bit OCD. But when I am busy at work- my desk ends up looking like this…..
8:00 am- Staff Meeting to discuss all that is going on this week.
9:30 am- Meeting with an electrical engineer to discuss a current project I am working on.
11:30 am- A quick run to Target to pick up a few things, then finish off a lean cuisine at my desk while catching up on my daily blog reads. This is when I usually figure out what I am going to blog about for the next day….
1:15 pm- Leave the office to head to a meeting. Pick up marble/stone samples on my way. And also a quick stop for a large diet coke from McDonald’s (FYI- I don’t like McD’s… just their DC’s!)
2:00-4:00 pm- Presentation to client to show floor plans, finish selections, lighting plans, etc.
Project: Senior Center
4:15 pm- Back at the office. Catch up on emails, return missed calls, etc.
5:40 pm- Leave the office and head home. Call my mom for our daily chat and we talk until I pull in my driveway.
6 pm- Arrive home. Nice to be home from another long day at work. The husband pulls up (this is early for him) and we have happy hour in the front yard with our neighbors while the dogs run around and play. A good way to unwind from the day.
6:25- 6:55 pm- In the kitchen preparing dinner… roast (which cooked all day- so nice to come home to the main dish ready to serve), mashed potatoes, and green beans. I have something to go to tomorrow night- so I mix up some chocolate chip cookies and put some in the oven.
7:00 pm- Dinner with the husband. Catch up on what all went on today.
7:30- Finish dinner and clean up the kitchen
8:00 pm- Downtime for both of us- reading magazines, watching tv, playing on the internet….
9:00 pm- Lights out.
My day was spent in these shoes….
That’s a typical day in my life. Hope you enjoyed a peek into my world!
A big thanks to Brooke for joining in on the fun! She was a bit afraid that her day was too boring, but I loved every second of it. I also now think that I wake up way to late! Must start to get up early with Brooke! I also must know where Brooke got those gold flats, because they need to come home with me!
Hope you all have a lovely Memorial day weekend. I wish I had something super fun going on this weekend, but I don’t. Totally low key weekend, but should be fun anyway!
