Vlog Friday - My Morning Routine

Ahh, it's finally Friday! This week has been such a drag. Maybe I'm just getting baby fever? Kind of like a kid the week before Christmas, it always seems to go by so slowly. It'll be my luck I'll be overdue and waiting for this baby boy into March. Think positive thoughts for me? Hope I go into labor early? Thanks.

Onto my vlog Friday post - minus a vlog! 

Today's topic is to record one of our daily routines but instead, I have a series of pictures and the exciting events that make up a normal morning for me. Ready? Let's go.

  • 5:50am - Alarm goes off. 
  • 5:50 - 6:55am - Hit snooze every 5 minutes until I finally decide to get out of bed.
  • 6:55am - Drag myself into the bathroom and brush my teeth.
  • 6:55 - 7:00am - While brushing my teeth, debate on whether or not I feel like taking a shower. My lazy bones are too tired to move. 
  • 7:01am - Decide to forego the shower and wash my face and put on my make-up. 

  • 7:10 am - Finish shellacking my face and look in the mirror, thinking it was probably a bad idea to skip the shower...

  • 7:10-7:20am - Hairdryer, hairspray and 4 different kinds of brushes later, I've tamed the mane to the best of my ability.

  • 7:21am - Realize I'm about to be late if I don't hurry the eff up and quit taking self portraits in the bathroom mirror like a dingdong.

  • 7:22 am - Get dressed and realize that I haven't started my car and there is damn frost on the ground. Wasn't it 65 degrees yesterday? Crap. Bodie needs to pee. (And clearly needs a bath.)

  • 7:23-7:29am - Leave the Bode-ster outside to take care of business and run back inside to make breakfast.

  • 7:30am - Realize if I don't leave right now I'm going to be late. Run to the door to call Bodie in.
  • 7:30-7:30and30seconds - Get frustrated that the damn dog didn't come when he was called. Time to go searching.
  • 7:31-7:35am - Realize that Bodie is next door with my neighbor in his garden. Run across the yard in my heels and work clothes to try and coax him back inside. The dog, not the neighbor. 
  • 7:36am - Cuss my dog under my breath the entire time back to the house. All while smiling and saying good morning to the next door neighbor. 
  • 7:37am - Shut Bodie in the house and get in my car. Realize it's a lost cause, I'm late. As usual. This time it's not my fault, not that anyone would believe me. 
  • 7:37-8:07am - Ride to work. Hit every stoplight. Cuss under my breath at the lights. (Clearly I'm not a morning person.)  Flip radio stations a million times. Cuss at the stupid DJ who is talking about dumb stuff people bet on during the SuperBowl. (No one cares what color Madonna's hair will be, shut up!)
  • 8:08am - Arrive at work. Walk in with fellow co-worker who also got caught by every light on the way to work. We cuss together.
  • 8:09am - Finally settle in at my desk and check my email.

  • 8:10- 9:30am - Try to secretly write this blog post while continually being interrupted. Guess I'll get to work now!

Join in on this weeks vlog Friday and share one of your normal routines with us.

You are awesome. I have the same breakfast today! Yum. I'm hooked.

Carolyn said...

HAHAHAHA! I love this. This is pretty much how my day goes too. What is it about running late that makes dogs want to go play outside and ignore you screaming at them to come in?!?!?!

Sean Marie said...

Haha, so funny. I can't believe you hit the alarm for almost an hour! Happy Friday!

Nicole said...

haha I so felt like I was reading about my morning! Yesterday my dogs were let out and they didn't come back when called for like a bazillion times so they kept their butt outside all day, which is probably what they wanted. I think they were hiding.

KimE said...

Mrs. H said...

This post was hilarious! I love the cartoon of what taking pics in the mirror is like.

Asha said...

It's hilarious how much your morning looks like my average morning (including the mirror pics, breakfast shake and running late)!

I'm your newest follower and hope you'll follow back at

Happy Friday!

Your morning routine just exhausted me LOL. I basically just roll out of bed, attempt to straighten my hair, and barely dress.

Jennifer B said...

I'd like to point out that I'm also working from home almost every day.

Neely said...

Looooove spinach smoothies :)

lavenderpug said...

that mischievous bodie! i'm impressed with your healthy breakfast.

Cece @ Dill Pickle Picnic said...

what is it about little white dogs and their wanderlust on days we are already running late? Yesterday I found Cotton laying in the backyard watching birds...grrr. :)

Jess@BeingMrsBeer said...

1. Is it odd I could tell that was a Virginia Tech shirt from the first hair picture? Probably not.

2. I think we were listening to the same radio show this morning. I don't care what color Madonna's hair is either. Strange things to bet on.

3. I wish I could get to work as fast as you. Damn Tysons.

Have an awesome weekend honey! <3

Layla said...

You're utterly adorable even with bed head!!

Diana said...

I love this idea!! I'm always wondering what everyone else's routine is in the AM. I love seeing Bodie's red little paws.... Sebastian looks the same way right now!

Diana said...

Do you have a schedule for your vlog Friday posts?? I'm interested by I already do Smile Friday... hmmm.

Amy said...

I'm not a morning person at all either! I slept in over an hour late this morning!! OOPS!

sashacleo said...

those sneaky dogs... they'll get you every time! I find that our pugs have a 6th sense, and take the absolute longest to potty when I'm in the hugest rush.

Erika said...

I was dying laughing all through this post. Hilarious! I kinda wanna join the vlog fun. But not tomrorow that's way too much pressure. Maybe next Friday?
