7:02 AM Alarm goes off. I hit snooze approximately 4 times and finally drag myself out of bed at 8ish.
8:05 AM Let the dogs out. We have two dogs, Layla, a rescued mutt & Edie Sedgwick, a Basset Hound. We've had Edie since she was 5 weeks old and she's as spoiled as they come.
8:10 AM Try and convince Edie to come inside. Run around the yard alternating who's doing the chasing & who's doing the escaping. Finally trick her into chasing me inside, feed the dogs & kiss them goodbye.
Every morning I spend about 3 hours baking pies, cakes, cheesecakes, cookies, brownies & whoopie pies.
I spend that time catching up with my dad, listening to NPR and guzzling coffee.

11 AM Head upstairs to starting waiting tables. This summer will mark 12 years of waiting tables for me. While it can be trying at times I thoroughly enjoy the people I work with and love getting to spend a significant part of my day with my parents.
11:30 AM Squeal when I see my husband, Jus, walk in the back door. His job requires him to travel around our area so I'm always excited when he's able to come in for lunch. I could never get to see Jus enough, he's pretty fabulous.
Cheer up, Jus, I promise to let you eat in peace & not take your picture anymore.
11:30-2 PM Wait on tables. Hopefully customers will be happy and lunch will be busy. Following our appearance on Food Network we get a ton of tourists through the restaurant but also have lots of regulars.
2 PM Following my lunch break the rest of my coworkers leave and I'm left to run the restaurant by myself. I cook, serve, tidy up & make sure the pie tray has enough options.
3:30 PM The afternoons are usually slow so I'm able to sit down and start getting ready for Friday evening. While I write up the menu I check Twitter to make sure I'm not missing anything.
4:30 PM Night crew arrives & I make a break for it.
4:36 PM Arrive at home. Twenty days before our wedding Jus & I bought a new house we lovingly call "The Behemoth." A foreclosure that was built in 1890 we have lots of work to do but love the projects
that come with a project.
4:40 PM Jump in the shower & scrounge around in my closet figuring out what to wear & settle on my go-to uniform
(dress, tights, boots & belted cardigan) all the while keeping an eye on the clock so I'm not late for a 5:30 meeting.
5:15 PM Say bye to Jus. He's getting ready to head to the radio station
he volunteers at to fill in for another DJ.
5:20 PM Last check in the mirror. If somethings astray it's too late, I have to get going!
5:30 PM Arrive at the local coffee shop for said meeting. Following our October wedding I've started coordinating weddings. A florist friend got in contact with me when a bride she is working with was looking for help with decor.
7 PM Meeting wraps up & I'm feeling excited about helping the bride make her day wonderful. The only concern? Her wedding is 6 weeks away and the reception space needs a ton of work. After the meeting I catch the start to Jus's radio show while in the car.
7:15 PM Meet my mom at the local auction house. We go every week in hopes of finding treasures to fill the Behemoth. When Jus & I upgraded from our 1100 square foot first house to the 4200 square foot Behemoth we realized just how little art & furniture we actually have.
7:30 PM After striking out at the auction my mom & I head to Target to get Easter supplies.
9 PM Arrive home after a non eventful dinner at a chain & park myself at my computer for the rest of the evening. Blog & watch Netflix for a couple of hours.
12 AM Turn off the TV and start reading, I read
every night before bed, sometimes I fall asleep with the light on and other times I stay up into the wee hours reading.
Thanks so much for joining me on my (not so exciting) adventure of every day life. I'd love if you stop by Adventures in Love & Happiness
, head over now to see Cailen's day!
