How I Do It: Morning Routine, Giveaway Winner

Doesn’t this Splendid Maxi Dress scream summer?
I think it needs to make its way into my summer wardrobe.

I hope y’all had a wonderful weekend!  Ours was filled with lots of family time, and last glimpses of our family home, as everyone gathered at the house one last time.  More photos saved for my Wednesday Whereabouts post.

How I Do It: My Morning Routine
(on a good day)

7:00 Girls up. They know the rule: No getting up before 7. I then let them watch a cartoon – Diego, Blue’s Clues – basically whatever is on Nick Jr. at that time. Quickly give them their milk and a treat (Oreo cookie), only if they stayed in their bed all night.

7:05 I jump in shower.

7:20 Feed them all breakfast (usually yogurt, a banana and toast/bagel) – yes, they eat a lot, and aren’t too picky – such a blessing! And feed Boozer his breakfast, too.

7:30 Clean up breakfast, and make their lunches for school, while they play together and read books.

7:45 Get them all changed, brush their hair, shoes on, and then I change too.

8:00 L and V awake, feed V his bottle, and give L his breakfast.

8:15 Pack up car (diaper bag prepped for errands, school bags, my coffee) and get their coats on.

8:30 All kids in car and head off to school (school starts at 9, and y’all, so far this schedule is on a good day, most days we’re leaving the house at 8:45 because of minor hiccups here and there).

8:45 Drop girls off at school, while the boys and I go run errands, take a walk, head home, etc. W has school everyday, and E has it MWF, so on Tuesdays and Thursdays, we try and go somewhere fun with E.

Tory Burch’s Sale is still going strong.  Use TBSPRING to receive 25% off at check-out.
Still debating whether or not I should snag this little Slouchy Case.
Seems like it’d be the perfect size to toss in my bag for the pool or beach this summer.

  1. I got two pairs of shoes I've been eyeing for over a year in the Tory sale….and there is still another pair I'm thinking on. It's just such a good deal!

  2. We have the same 7am rule for our 4 1/2 yr old – works great! But how on Earth do you get the little ones to sleep until 8am? Our 2 year old is up by 6:30 or 7am (on a good day) and the kiddos share a room, which is no fun for the older one when he's trying to get a little more sleep!

  3. I am not just flattering you. I seriously don't know how you do it. So impressed by your grace and dignity through it all. PS-LOVE that profile pic of you on the blog. Too cute.
