Monday, May 9, 2016 // Week in the Life Day One

A few thoughts – I did not get to prep as much as I intended, but am jumping into documenting, taking notes, using the Day One app & of course taking photos. I will be primarily using my iPhone. It will actually be a not-routine week as I have an overnight to NYC with my Mom in the midst of the week. So I am excited to document the regular stuff along with that trip. So here goes.

For Monday, besides b&w, most photos are unedited:

I showered last night after a crazy busy weekend, so I slept in a few minutes this morning. Braided buns for the win – makes for easy breezy wavy hair.

My bathroom has quite a few buttons. {my Dad is a retired electrician} Had to still put the heat on this morning to beat the chill in the air, but hoping that is almost over.

A glance into my messy studio. On top of WITL & my 100 day card planning project, I’ve been prepping decorations for an upcoming fiesta. Love seeing the sun on the blinds here. I love that my house gets awesome natural light in my favorite spots.

Besides my story, his is definitely an important piece of my week, but he is not crazy about my documenting. He is lucky I missed the shot where he was sticking his butt out at me. I love seeing him dressed, work shirt & pants, all nice and smooth and slender. On point.

Fun fact:  I live near the blueberry capital of the world. My parents buy huge 5 lb boxes each year and bag them up for freezing. It’s great to have for my oatmeal, cereal or smoothies.

Most days we ride together, but he had a workshop to go to, so we went our separate ways. Not before some morning snuggles.

I try to take the stairs as much as possible, but some days I have too much crap.

I know it’s Monday morning because I went to the kitchen to make my oatmeal with my blueberry container instead of my lunch bag. So while the oatmeal was cooking, I went back to my desk to drop the blueberries off and pick up the lunch bag to put in the refrigerator. I do that too often & am reminded of one of my fav quotes “Strike that, reverse it!”

I run errands at lunch. HomeGoods is one of my favorite stores. I’m there too much probably. Their mirrors are perfect for selfies or documenting week in the life!

For the fiesta I’ve been in search of bright colored crepe paper. Visited a few stores before finding what I needed in AC Moore. Did you know you can get them to text you a coupon from their site? Came in handy.

Jotting down some reminders for my NYC trip.

I still have more of Monday to go and will continue to document.

Some thoughts:

  • I was reminded how it’s a little uncomfortable taking photos in public, but then I remember how much I like seeing those details and stuff outside of my home, my safe little world.
  • I have to remember photo orientation. I’ve been doing a lot of square scrapping lately, but I’m not sure if I will do that for my WITL album, so trying to make sure I get some varied sizes of different shots, or take a wide angle for cropping.
  • I definitely feel a little scattered at the start of this project, but just being mindful and doing my best to document is my focus.
