June '13 - Week in the Life - Day 1 & Day 2

June 2013 Week in the Life
Day One - Monday, June 10th
Day Two - Tuesday, June 11th

Hello ladies :) I'm so happy to hear what everyone's been up to!!! I miss you guys so much!

Hope you don't mind two days rolled in to one - I haven't really done much of anything. That always happens with us though, doesn't it? ;)


I started a new job in December - right after Christmas - in my uncles construction company. I'm an administrative assistant/office manager/whatever-needs-doing-I-get-it-done. I answer the phone, invoice customers, order materials, run payroll, clean, etc. It's nice because it's in his home (which they just built and, oh my gosh, it's beautiful) and I can take Hailey with me and she'll just ride to daycare with my Aunt.

Anyway, so Monday was like any other. I got to work, made my breakfast, checked and responded to e-mails, filed things from the fax machine, paid some bills, and did a little light cleaning.

Me at work on Monday.  Lazy hair day!
By this time it was about 11:30 so I took some time to plan a few things that are happening soon.

I am hosting a Premier Jewelry party on the 25th to help my good friend, Leah, who just became a "jeweler" with this home sales company. It's really pretty stuff and reasonably priced. So, I needed to plan refreshments, finalize the guest list, and send out invitations.

My best friend, Taylor, is getting married on September 13th - I'm a bridesmaid (which is why I started exercising, more on that in a bit) and I've been, or actually put myself, in charge of her bridal shower. We are doing a Tea Party theme for about 35-40 people on July 20th. We haven't started hardly any planning, lol, so I've been trying to organize some of that in my free time.

The rest of the work day went by with little else happening.
My work space.

Currently, Hailey is taking swimming lessons at our local YMCA on Monday's, Wednesday's, and Fridays, so we had to go to that. She had a good time.
Hailey Lynn at swimming lessons.
After swimming we came home and had dinner with my mom and my sister - it was scalloped potatoes and ham; Hailey's favorite!

Then it was time for a bath and for Hailey to go to bed.

Now, here's a funny story for you... My sister ended up taking a bubble bath upstairs. I was using the downstairs bathroom when she started draining the tub. All of a sudden I though a spider was touching my bum so I jumped up... My toilet was FILLED with bubbles from her bath!!!! It was nuts!

After the "excitement" of the plumbing I went and did my new work-out, INSANITY! with Shawn T. IT WAS SO HARD. And I only had to do the "fit test" part for the first day. I'm so overweight and out of shape that it is very difficult for me to do one rep of anything. I need to focus on my exercise and diet so I can look good for my best friend's wedding. All the other bridesmaids are so pretty and thin and I don't want to stick out :(

Tuesday -------

No pictures today - I don't know where the day went!!!

Again, I got up and went to work - no big deal. I got the office things done and then my uncle asked me if I would mind cleaning the basement because they are going to start hanging drywall in there next week. We are all also in cleaning mode this week because my cousin graduated from high school on June 2nd and his graduation party is this weekend. The house has no grass yet, it's still growing, and parts of things aren't completely finished yet. They built a closet under their steps that I call the "Harry Potter Cupboard" and we had to drywall over it today because the door won't be in for a few weeks and they want it to look nice for the party. I was sad :( But, it looks like I'll be painting tomorrow! That'll be fun.

It took me about 2 hours to move things and sweep up the basement. Tomorrow I'll be mopping to get the rest of the dirt and dust up. It's just a cement floor but Hailey and my god-daughter, Franklyn, like to go down there with scooters and they've been tracking dust back upstairs.

Then my aunt came home and told me to stop working so we could have tea, banana bread, and watch Days of Our Lives (she DVR's it every day). I was TOTALLY okay with that ;)

After that we cleaned out the garage and I stayed for dinner. Came home, worked out (owwwwwwwww), and now I'm doing this.

Hopefully I didn't bore you :) I'll try to get tomorrow posted quicker too!



  1. Bubbles in the toilet!??!? That is soooo wierd!!! Insanity is the real deal.....I bow down to you. My idea of exercise is a walk LOL keep it up hun! :)

    1. For the last few months I've been doing "Walk Away the Pounds with Leslie Sansone" DVDs and they are "just walking" but work you out so much!

  2. Can I have your job?! I wish I had one like that! lol. good for you, no more hospitals? Let me know how insanity works out and I may have to give it a try! The bubbles was hilarious. Are they going to take down the drywall after the party??

    1. I think they're going to wait until the special wood panels they wanted to put up are completely ready to install and then take the drywall down :)

      Insanity is SO SO SOOO HARD so far. And I haven't lost any weight but I've been really bad about my diet this week, so I know that's why.

      I left my job at the hospital in August to go work for a doctors office but that was a BIG BIG MISTAKE! And I couldn't get back in to the hospital for a year :( So I left there on December 21st and started with the construction company on December 26th :) It is a great job!

  3. omg bubbles in the toilet HAHAHA I laughed sooo much! hahaha I would have screamed!!! awesome news that you'll be a bridesmaid :) and what better than a tea party theme! :) I agree with Allie, can I have that work space?? I work Saturday night so I'm going to take a picture of MY workspace hahaha... SO JELLYYYY

    1. I did scream!!! I thought it was a big spider! I've seen so many things on TV about spiders under toilet seats lol

      I'm very excited to be a bridesmaid but I am not excited about wearing a nice dress in front of people when I look the way I do :(

      I can share my workspace with all of you! Just move to PA!
