A Day in the Life – 8/12/15

by Meghann on August 13, 2015

5:40am – Ding! Ding! (Well, actually it’s more of a soothing musical chime…) Alarm goes off. Press snooze and roll over. Five minutes. All I need is five more minutes.

5:45am – Ding! Ding! Has 5 minutes really passed? 5 more won’t hurt. I promise to get up after that.

5:50am – Ding! Ding! This time Maddie is in my face. She’s licking, jumping, and begging to go out. Fine. Time to get up. I let Maddie out and get dressed.

6:05am – Maddie and I head out for our morning walk around the neighborhood. Thanks to back-to-back travel, I haven’t been for a run in two weeks and I’m okay with that. I think I’m going to stick to walking from here on out. I’m also rocking my new maternity belt. It didn’t help much for running, but I think it does make a difference on our walks.


6:50am – Return home and head for the shower.

7:05am – Turn on the Today show and eat a breakfast of peach, peanut butter, and a bagel with cream cheese while sitting on the couch in my robe.


7:30am – I didn’t wash my hair today (if I washed my hair everyday it would turn into a greasy mess), so I just pull it into a pony tail and do my makeup (I never wore make-up before pregnancy – stupid brown spots).

7:45am – Getting dressed today was easy thanks to a new cardigan I just received from PinkBlush Maternity. I’ll do a full review later, but already digging what I received!


7:55am – Throw leftovers in a bag for lunch. Confirm plans with Derek for the baseball game after work.

8:05am – Hop in the car and head to work.

8:20am – What is up with this traffic? Is school back in session? Does this mean summer is over? Wahhhhh.

8:50am – Arrive at work – FINALLY. Continue to curse traffic.

9:05am – Sit at my desk and turn the computer on. Time to answer approximately 500 emails and get shiz done.

10:00am – OMG I’m starving. Pull out cheese curds (because who visits Wisconsin and doesn’t bring cheese curds home?!) and pretzels thins for my snack.


12:30pm – Lunch time! I reheat leftover taco salad and it’s amazing.


2:00pm – Baby is really moving today. A body part is really jutting out of my left side and making sitting straight really uncomfortable. What is that? A butt? Her back?

4:00pm – I snack on some applesauce.


5:45pm – Leave work about 15 minutes early and head to St. Pete to meet Derek for the baseball game. His co-workers all got tickets for tonight’s game. My co-worker asks me who we’re playing as I’m leaving. Hmm… I have no idea. Let me google that… ( we played the Braves 😉 )

6:15pm – Meet Derek at his office and switch to one car to drive to the stadium. Facetime with the cutest nephew on the way. Owen turned 1 today and celebrated with balloons and cake.

6:45pm – Arrive at stadium, park, and make our way over.

7:10pm – I stop and buy a Rays tank top on the way in because the only Rays shirt I currently own is a child’s size and clearly doesn’t fit at the moment.



7:30pm – We find our seats and I indulge in a ballpark favorite – hot dog and French fries. Please note I could only eat half. As baby grows the size of my stomach is shrinking.


9:30pm – We leave at the 7th inning. Let’s just say it wasn’t the Ray’s night.

10:30pm – Home! Finally. I can’t get in my jammies fast enough. It’s past my bedtime and I’m exhausted.

Sweet dreams.

So funny, if I washed my hair everyday it would be the opposite- a big ol’ frizz ball! I have to let it get greasy first 😉 hahaha

Hi Meghann! I sent you a quick email because there’s an iron girl on Sunday and I need your advice regarding packet pick up. If you wouldn’t mind checking it I would greatly appreciate it!!

You should have stayed at the baseball game! The Rays wound up coming back in the 7th and winning. 🙂 LOL about the tshirt…my regular Rays shirt is also a kids’ size and I definitely could not wear it during pregnancy. I like the new cardigan!

You are adorable! My sister and I both recently had little girls! You made me chuckle when you said, “What is that? A butt? Her back?” It’s a mystery isn’t?! Ha ha! So fun to stubble across your blog! Congrats on your baby girl!

Wow your day starts pretty early! Has the sun risen yet when you taken your morning walk?

Traffic is a bum but just forget it, you still had a great day Meghann! I’m glad you still opted to do morning walks around your neighborhood with that large bump. Keep going! 🙂
