Just another manic monday... in pictures.

Yesterday I took my camera around with me EVERYWHERE in order to capture a typical Monday. You are invited to see what an average Monday in my life looks like. Here we go...

I wake up at 5:55am. Jealous? I think hit snooze at least 2 times before I make it out of bed.

6:30am drive to work. At least the sun is out at this time these days. :)

Arrive at work just before 7 and it's breakfast time.

Mini wakes up and what better way is there to be greeted in the morning, huh?
We play, sing, do a bit of screeching (a new vocal fav) and before we know it, its lunch time and sometimes this happens.
While Mini is down for a nap...
I get my bloggin' on...
...and eat lunch. (Today's lunch is my fav salad!)
Afternoon. Sun is shining. A trip to the pool is a must.
Arrive home after 6pm and Netflix in my mailbox is a very happy sight.
 Start preparing dinner before...
...it's back in the car to go pick up Hubby from Trader Joe's (best store everrr right?) where he has been working in between studying.
I get to hang out with these two cool guys for a bit
Dinner time and catch up on our favorite YouTube family: The Shaytards
Mike has a half hour of his xbox fix while I sneak in a old Russell Brand podcast and edit pics

So there you have it! A typical life of a South African living in New York. Not everyday is an episode of 'Sex in the City'.

  8. I love this idea. I can't imagine what it would look like if I tried to capture my typical Monday. I am just super jealous that you can wake up a little before 6 a.m. and be out the door by 6:30. It takes me at least an hour and a half to get ready!
