Today we are continuing with Joi’s Blog Challenge Party and one of the theme’s for today is A Day In the Life, so I am sharing what I do on a normal day! (Normal days do not include blog events, work events, etc. Just a regular day in the life of Nellie!)
A day in the life Of Nellie
6:00am Wake up. Check my phone for any important emails and really to bring myself to full consciousness
6:15-6:45am shower and get fabulous. Nuff said!
6:45am grab my snacks from the fridge and lunch (if I made some for that week), kiss kids and hubby bye (hubby dresses and gets the kids to their destinations)
7:00 am - battle, fight and beg to get on an over crowded bus to get to my train
7:20pm get on my train, use 9 minutes above ground to read blogs and/or tweets
7:30am write a post, usually with my BEATS by DRE on blast with Zumba music that I am memorizing for class (it’s also the only way I can concentrate)
8:00am get off train transfer to second train
8:10am arrive, purchase breakfast across the street from deli
8:15am go to Duane Reade for lemons and little things
8:20am firmly plant myself in my seat for work, get water, glass of milk and settle in for the day
9am-12pm various meetings internally. (Some days I go offsite to do presentations–I LIKE those days :))
12pm time to workout!!
1:15 back in the office eat lunch
1:30-4 more meetings, phone calls etc
4:00pm leave the office to get back on the crazy train
4:15 settle into the second train and now I have 30-40 mins to write another post.
5:05 get on bus
5:15 walk in the door/start dinner (if my mom has the kids I go straight home if not, I go get them)
6:00pm dinner time
8:00pm oldest boy bedtime
TV time (DVR catch up!) I am able to pull out my phone at this time but the baby is usually on top of me at this point so very little gets done.
9:00 pm baby goes to bed!! Blog office is open for business!! Run around commenting on blogs I already read in the morning. Try to reply to my own blog comments.
10:30 (most nights–could be earlier or later)
**I also comment on blogs during the day to take my mind off the crazy at work so don’t be surprised if you see comments from me during the day!**
First Blog Announcement
First, I am going to be talking more fashion on the blog — I talk about fashion here and there, but if you guys know me (which you do) you know that I have a serious love for fashion even though I over think my outfits sometimes. I am going to do some more fashion related things–I am no means an expert–but I do love it. This blog is about the things I love and nothing else is changing, just growing.
I have a couple of ideas that are still being flushed out but I will most like be going the corporate fashion route since most of my closet is geared towards career clothing. Everything else remains the same, we are still driving in the same direction, just a different lane
Second Blog Announcement
I am SO happy to announce that I am now a Brand Ambassador for GotMilk and the Protein Fight Club! You will be seeing some pretty cool sponsored Milk related posts coming up from me in the next few weeks, so I appreciate your support in advance!! You know Milk and I are the perfect combo as we go back like crackerjack! I am so excited to share with you some of the great benefits of Milk and all the cool stuff in the new campaign.
Just wanted to give a heartfelt thank you to all of you for being so awesome. Seriously. I LOVE all of you who comment, and I LOVE all of you that don’t–(I was a lurker for many many years and I was quite comfortable in it :)) Thank you for your emails, thank you for responding to MY emails and most of all thank you for being a friend. I started blogging to make connections and all of a sudden I have a family. *ends sappy moment*
