Two Teens And Their Mama: A Day In My Life

A Day In My Life


If you're hopping over from Katie's blog, welcome to my home!  And if you're starting here, let me explain.

Today, The Blended Bloggers are sharing a day in our lives.  January 23, 2016, to be exact. Nine of us documented what we did that Saturday, and now it's time to hop around and see what everyone was up to. 

Which for me ended up being a whole lot of not much.  I had big plans to show you a very exciting day, which fizzled out shortly after I got up.  But I'll get to that in a minute.

Although it was a Saturday, I still got up early for my devotional time.



Since we like to hike, even in the winter, I had planned a trip to one of our favorite spots, to share January in the Pacific Northwest with you.  But the weather had other ideas.  AND my husband was sick.  No hiking for us.



So instead, I went downstairs and put in a 21 Day Fix DVD.  After my workout I got on the computer to get a little blogging done.



As I sat there thinking about my day, I was feeling pretty bummed.  This wasn't the kind of Saturday I had in mind.  But I eventually decided to embrace it. Every day can't be exciting!

After a shower, I headed to the store to pick up supplies for my under the weather husband. Yay, finally out of the house!



I spent the afternoon reading, doing laundry, and getting dinner ready.



At 5:30 the boys arrived with their friends in tow.  Because we almost always have extra teenagers for dinner.  They can sense when it's time to eat!  Lemon chicken and rice was on the menu.



Finally time for some fun!  A hangout with a few of my favorite blogger friends. I have no idea why Deena, Shaunacey and I look distressed in this picture.  We actually had a wonderful chat.  What did you say to us, Carrie?



I finished up the evening with a rousing game of Scrabble with my husband, who was feeling a little better.  I've never won a single game in 33 years with him, and this night was no exception.  Sigh.



So there you have it, a day in my not so exciting life.  

But to be honest, I kind of like it that way.

Now it's time to head over to Christy's blog and see what she was up to.  She lives in Canada with her two little boys, so I'm sure she had a fun day!

  1. Those easy weekend days always turn out to be the best! I haven't played scrabble in ages! Might have to break out that game this weekend! Hope your husband is feeling better!

  8. haha, never won in 33 years and he was sick, wow, impressive. Love the Google Hangout picture, I wish I could have joined in on the fun! And how do you know how much food to make for that many teenagers, so fun that they feel like they can bring people home for dinner. I hope my kids want to do the same! What's your secret?

    1. We almost always make extra food - my husband loves leftovers, so if nobody shows up it works out. Our house has always been open to all our boys friends - they have a "man" cave downstairs to hang out in, and we feed them!

  9. Love that your house is the go-to house for dinner and good company. I bought a pool so my kids would have their friends over. Who knew I could have settled for just buying some groceries!!! P and I play Wordament online. My words are WAS and SAW, his are something like ubiquitous. Hope you were able to do your hike another day and that Mister is feeling 100%

    1. Still haven't managed the hike! Hopefully soon. Food always works with boys!

  10. I saw all of the bad weather heading your way hope you weathered it without incident! My husband was sick for over a week (which has never happened!) and OMG I was ready to kill him. If I heard "honey, I don't feel good" one more time I wouldn't be responsible for my actions. Now, he's better and me and the babies are sick. Go figure! Have a great weekend!

    1. Aww...hope you're feeling better soon. We're used to the constant rain this time of year - but it does get old sometimes!

  11. I love those days, relaxing and getting caught up. I feel like I get a lot of the little things done.

    I played Scrabble with my mother for 22 years and never won a game with her until the last one... we always had such awesome chat times, I loved that time with her... good memories... thanks Lana ♡

  13. I can never beat my husband at scrabble either! I refuse to play against him anymore. I decided to stick to cards.

  14. Sounds like a typical Saturday at my house too. Except for the Scrabble. I love it, but hubby isn't much for board or card games. And a blogger chat sounds fun, I never thought of that.
