TAG - I'm it - Get to know me!

What is your daily routine like? What time to you get up, go to bed, dinner routine, etc.
Most mornings the twins dictate my rise...generally at 6:30 and I wake Cole at 7:30. Breakfast at 8, I bundle the crew up at 8:30 and we walk to school with Cole for 8:50, home by 9am. Babes down for a nap at 9:30 and I get in my cardio in my home gym or I dash to the gym (Tim works from home so he is with the twins while they sleep). Get twins up at 11, lunch at 11:30, bath for the twins, run an errand with them if I need to, and they are back down at 1:30ish for a nap and I work online. Pack up the twins at 3:10 and walk to school and stay and play at the playground until 4:30. Home at 5, dinner 6, play, bottle, bed for twins by 7, Cole in bed at 8:30 and I work again online until 10:30 (this is when Tim gets in his workout)...Tim and I relax till 11:30 and it's bed time.

What are things you do with your family for fun. And for those of you with children, what fun things to you like to do with your kids?

Family walks are huge in our house, we have friday night movie night, and we love heading to the lake and exploring on the beach. Unstructured fun is something I have learned to embrace.

What are your FAVORITE holiday traditions?

We just had thanksgiving at the new cabin and it was AMAZING. I'll do a post on it soon. Otherwise I am not a huge tradition girl, odd for my type A personality, but I'm floored that people put so much pressure on certain days of the year.

What do you do when you want to relax and have some "me time" ?

My "me" time is working out. I do have a girls running group every week and that's a great way to socialize and stay fit all in one. I did notice at the lake though I HAD to relax as I had no internet, it was my day off from I read a trash mag and had a nap!

What is one of your favorite books you've read so far?

I loved Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet. I also really enjoyed the Andre Agassiz Bio...

What is your biggest guilty pleasure?

Food wise? Chocolate and pies, pumpkin pie for sure...I indulge in my pleasure at least once a week! Otherwise, I am guilty of watching too much reality TV....teen mom, jersey shore..plain old junk. Does it make it any better if I say I watch these shows while on the treadmill?

Thank you to Miranda at Hangin' Loose with The Tucci's for tagging me...check her out, she does fantastic blog and website design work! She lives in Hawaii!!! Can you imagine!!!


  1. Mmm chocolate! I loved Pillars of the Earth too, I should read it again, it's been so long and I have a terrible memory. I am sure I would enjoy it all over again.

    That was fun, thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks for playing along, girl! :-) You are seriously SUPER WOMAN! Maybe someday I can be like you!!! :-)

  3. I'll say the treadmill makes your reality tv watching better if you say that me nursing while I watch it makes it better. :)
