4:30pm–(I normally don’t leave this early, but I have a rehearsal tonight for Holiday Party Singers and the family I nanny for is kind enough to let me leave early!!)

5:00pm-7:00pm sing, sing, sing 🙂  The day before Thanksgiving is our debut show!!

This is our costume!  How fun!

7:00pm-7:40pm– Drive home

7:40pm–eat something…it’s so late compared to when I normally eat and I didn’t have a chance to eat before rehearsal.  Luckily my crockpot concoction turned out.

8:00pm-9:00pm–chat with Brian, make sure I have everything ready to go for tomorrow, and go pick up some packages from downstairs (the property manager had them.)

9:30pm–lights out and IN BED!!


So there ya have it friends.  That is a little peak into what my life is like right now, but I can assure you that every day is a little different.  I also want to make sure you realize that no one is perfect in the decisions they make throughout the day (with food, exercise, rest, productivity, etc), so please keep that in mind when commenting below.  Thank you for being interested in my life and in this blog.  It’s so fun to share with you!
