a day in our life // 04.23.14

^^^ bedhead & breakfast face

I always love when bloggers do “a day in our life” type posts. I like them even more when they show an average day. The big, fun zoo trips, beach days, and other fun days are nice — but I love to see the in between times, the quiet times, the magical uneventful days that truly make up our lives. So I figured I’d start sharing these little peeks into our simple life more often. I hope you enjoy it — our life uncensored — dirtiest dishes, laundry, bedhead & all.

while roman eats, mama feeds bella

the prettiest eggs, cage-free always

and then to tackle last night’s mess


and someone needs to go out

my seed babies are getting so big!


…and naptime

a quick nap and then it’s time for lunch. eat, sleep, repeat. eat, sleep, repeat.

that’s better

now to prepare roman’s 2nd lunch, mama’s 1st

annie’s organic shells
with broccoli… so good!

time to get some work done while roman plays

oh, those little toes ^.^

learning our animal names & sounds



what would a blog post be without at least a couple more cliche plant shots? ^.~

blogging & instagramming simultaneously >.<

and nap time

which means laundry time for mama

laundry for days…

…and days

he’s awake

and she’s ready for a nap

roman watches thomas the tank while mama preps for supper



sleep. eat. repeat. 😉

sweetest little piggies in late afternoon sunlight.


and after this papa came home. mama went to the gym. mama came home. roman had a bath. and we all went to bed. the end. ♥

    I love these kinds of posts, too. So fun. And I agree- the best ones are ordinary days because they kind of get lost in the shuffle of memories if you don’t document them somehow. I like your plant shots. 🙂 Also love your kitchen cabinets with the wall color and countertops (yep, we’re remodeling ours).

      Thanks, Julie! <3 I love Annie's! I never thought of adding salmon, too. We'll have to give it a try! 🙂

    Looks like a fun day!

    These were always my favorite type of posts to read back in the day on livejournal! I’ve been wanting to do a day in the life post but I always feel like my life is too boring, ha.

      No such thing as too boring. Look at my life.. LOL. All we’re doing here is eating, TV, and sleeping. 😉

        But atleast you take pretty photographs! Things always become a little more exciting when pretty pictures are telling the story!

    This is a totally weird comment, but those eggs are so clean, wow!!!! The eggs sold in Ukrainian supermarkets are fresh but they’re rather….covered in gunk 😛 Now I’m looking forward to some American eggs again!

      Haha, indeed the eggs in grocery stores are very clean here. I prefer the messy ones from the local farm though. 😉

    Love this. A lovely way to spend your days.
    I’ve been thinking about doing one of these but since I work, weekdays are sort of “Get up, change baby, leave him with Nana, go to work, come home, spend time with baby, eat, bed” haha And weekends are pretty random. We either do something out of the ordinary, or do chores/repairs/stuff around the house. hmmm
