Happy Friday Adventurers! We decided to give you a peek into our every day life. Not every day looks like the KY Derby Party and Pig Day at the K! We each picked a day and took some pics throughout to show you what we do on a normal non-pig grill day.
I hope you enjoy!
Just another manic Monday with Stephanie:
My weekday breakfasts are always the same. Why? Because it's simple and delicious. After my over easy eggs topped with sriracha (the greatest condiment ever made) and a side of OJ I started my day. On Monday's I usually work from home so you can see my setup in the living room. I may or may not catch up on shows if my workday permits. :)
I save yard work (damn gardener didn't show up - probably because I don't pay one) and chores (damn house keeper didn't show - ditto from above) around the house for days I work from home since I've saved the commute time. Today I HAD to mow! It's never good when your grass is above the tire on your mower. After I tamed the non-concrete-jungle I had to do one more round of clean-up on my kitchen floor that I just grouted this weekend.
With house stuff done it was time for fun! I play on a coed softball team on Monday nights throughout the summer and our game wasn't until 8:30 so you can see the ugly sunset view of downtown KC. It makes for a beautiful backdrop while playing with a great group of people that have had the pleasure of knowing me for years. We won so it was a great way to wrap up my day
It's Goin' Up On a Tuesday with Andrea:
Bright and early the day gets started! First I do my rain dance but something must be off so I had to water the plants with actual water, then I get a little workout in (pool season is upon us) and finally I sip on my matcha tea from my adorable cat mug.
Once I make myself presentable to the world I head to work where I eat my breakfast at my desk. Why are there so many files and business-y things to take care of already???
After breakfast and coffee people are comfortable speaking to me. Turns out dealing with people is hard so I took a little time to drive the community and make sure things are in tip top shape. Wowzers I found a rouge trailer parked on our property. Busted..whoever left the trailer here. The investigation continues.
Back to the office. Oh wait, I need to go get an allergy shot. Off to Allergy and Asthma Care!
Anytime I head back to the office from the allergist I stop at Starbucks, obviously.
Work, work, work, work, work.
I headed to pick Leslie up at the end of my day, she helped me pick out new lounge chair cushions for the backyard. They weren't awkward to carry or anything.
I spent the evening at home with my hubbs cooking dinner, reading a book, folding the laundry, and snuggling with my fur kids.
In the words of Ice Cube, "Today was a good day".
Hump Day with Kristi!
Wednesday started out with a very early alarm clock. It was my first early morning workout at my new gym. Lucky for the pets they got to stay in bed! My first breakfast of the day was a Lara Bar that was consumed in the car on the way to MC CrossFit. The workout was a tough one for me - rowing, wall balls, thrusters (still working on that form!), and bar facing burpees - whew! Thankfully, I didn't die.
Why is it that you always need gas at the most inconvenient times? I stopped to get some on the drive home and wad thrilled whenan ESPN bit popped up the gas pump screen. Score! After attempting to get ready at home I made breakfast number two. A smoothie from Daily Harvest. It was my first time making one and it was super easy! Once at work, I finished off breakfast number three that was comprised of hard boiled eggs and fruit.
Lunch time was enjoyed at home with an attempt to sit on the patio while the dog enjoyed the sun. Unfortunately, it was super windy! Clouds were rolling in by time I was headed back to work.
Once that work thing was over I was headed home for the evening. We usually play indoor volleyball on Wednesdays but had a bye week. That meant extra time for lawn mowing and laundry. The evening was capped off with some reheated pad thai that burned my mouth in that oh so good Thai hot kind of way!
That leaves Thursday for me-Leslie. I don't get up in the 4 o'clock hour, but I do get up at 5am to hit up the gym. Pump some iron and a quick mile finisher is a great way to start the day...clearly taking a photo from the ground on your phone with the timer is a terrible angle!!
I had to fast for 12 hours for a wellness assessment (don't worry, I totally passed and my cholesterol is low...woohoo!) I saved all of the drinks for post assessment! Supplements=BCAAs and protein. Then water to rehydrate!
Work is boring, so I'll jump right to post work. A little pup time...he's pretty much my favorite.
I have coached Girls on the Run for about 3 years now. It is so much fun to get to know the girls and encourage them to be strong, kind, and confident young ladies! It was our end of season party before the 5K with the rest of the city this weekend.
Next up-volleyball!! This little guy was trying to warn us of the storms ahead, but we didn't listen. We headed inside for some beers while we waited out round one of the storms. You don't see a guy in a taco, pizza, and cat shirt every day...just on Thursday!!! Then we hit the courts just in time to win 3 games and get poured on! Lightning isn't dangerous is it??
Finally made it home for some salmon tostadas and blogging of course!! I don't want to disappoint you readers! Don't worry you can read this when you get up at 5am tomorrow...or is that just me??
No time for sleep, there are adventures to be found...Unfiltered Adventures!
We hope you enjoyed a peek into our day to day lives.
