A picture an hour

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Hope you all have a nice day, single or taken, and remember you are loved.

I've seen this "a picture an hour" post around on different blogs lately (I think it originated here), and yesterday I thought I'd try it. It was kind of hard since I often sit at my computer for hours at a time, but good because it challenged me to take little breaks and do other things... can't just keep taking pictures of my keyboard. ;)

These photos don't necessarily represent everything I did that hour - they are just a little scene I saw. It was definitely an uneventful day (nothing too exciting happened), but that's sort of a day in the life around here. I sit on my butt, working on stuff on the computer, from dawn til dusk many days. I wish yesterday I had some exercise to show for myself, but alas, I did not.  Here are my pictures...

* * * * *

7 am - Gracie and Cooper get breakfast :)



8 am - my favorite breakfast lately: scrambled eggs with pico de gallo mixed in and fresh avo on top. Fruit on the side, a glass of water, and vitamins. :)



9 am - Get to work. This heart wallpaper from design love fest makes me smile.



Second cup of coffee came early. Yep, one of those kind of days...



10 am - Snoozing happily while Mommy works.



11 am - still working. Cooper in his regular post under my chair or desk. Bored and wishing we were on a walk.



12 noon - went to visit Norman while my mom was volunteering. Such a little goob.



1 PM - lunch of champions: multigrain cheerios.



Cleaned kitchen - the before was atrocious.



2 pm - I believe in power naps.



So does Cooper.



3 pm - a little french press coffee for an afternoon pick me up before getting back to work...



4 pm - editing pictures is better with a "Caramel Delight" Girl Scout cookie.



5 pm - took a break to paint my fingers and toes in preparation for the big day. Red with gold glitter. :)



6 pm - french dip sandwich for din din... veggie chips and an apple on the side.



7 pm - nightly bathtime ritual... this is my favorite place in the house.



Tired face and messy hair. A good day. :)

  3. A day in the life posts are so interesting! I'm sure it had you noticing things you do every day that go unnoticed. I would love to try this...I'm sure it would prove insightful. When you commit to taking a photo an hour, you must be more conscious of every moment. Great post.

  10. I love seeing people's day-to-day life, so this post is just wonderful! {Read: maaaaybe I'm super nosy. But isn't that why we all blog?! :)} I'm also super jealous that you get to hang with your pups all day at home - I miss Hollybug when I'm at the dreaded office!

    Happy Valentine's Day, Jenni!

  14. Love this series! I need to do it one day, mostly likely on a weekend so it's not just pictures of my desk. Or I could do one of Floyd's and every single picture would be the same...of him sleeping.
    LOVE those Valentines nails!!

  25. I have this on my super long list of ideas for days I don't know what to post. I loved your pictures! Do you remember where you found that little shelf that sits across your tub? I would love one for my tub, but don't know where to start looking! xoxo, Eliza

  33. So, do you forget it's 2013 or something?

    And WHY do you have your girl scout cookies already? I call bulllllllllllshit. (just like on How To Lose A Guy) I have to wait until March. Did you hear that? March.

    Fact of the day? Bubble Baths give me UTI's. (yep, I just went there)

  34. These photos are beautiful! I'm a full-time university student, so if I did a photo every hour they'd all look the same: library, library, library, bed. Haha!

  40. That's pretty cool to get a glimpse of what goes on in a day for you.
    Your bathtub looks so inviting though! I never really take baths, but if I had a bathtub like you, it would probably be a weekly ritual!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love this picture every hour post. It's not super overwhelming and gives just enough glimpse into life. I'm shocked your desk is that clean btw - I wish mine was even close to that. Also, I just had cocoa puffs for dinner...
