Today’s featured lady is my friend Amanda from Amanda Carol at home. She is a busy mom and interior decorator from Texas and I think many of us can relate to a typical day in her life. I’m wiped just thinking about everything she did.
So sit back, relax and enjoy a day in Amanda’s life.
I am beyond honored and thrilled that Camila asked me to be a part of “In Her Shoes”. I have read this series for years now and can’t believe I’m now “one of them”! *squeal*
6:45am- *me smashing the snooze button*
6:55- Pull myself out of bed and head downstairs to make my oldest her breakfast and pack her lunch. (Im sparing you photos here cuz you know–not pretty)
7:45- Scarfing a bowl of cereal, yelling at the kids-“lets go, your sisters gonna be late!” Luckily the school is right down the street so we walk over to drop my daughter off.
8:00am- The boys settle in for some TV time (cuz momma has some emails to catch up on- Ok, ok- maybe a little Pinterest too)
8:05am I settle in here with my hot tea and laptop:
9:00am- Rushing to get my make-up on, load fabrics into the car.
Stop by my clients house to re-measure her windows for the custom drapery:
11:30- At West Elm checking out a chair and rug for a client:
12:30- realize Im starving- stop at Starbucks for a Spinach Wrap and Awake Tea Latte (and totally forgot to snap a pic)
1:00pm- Run into a local shop to see what’s new for the week (Her stuff is amazing and sells fast-so you gotta check it a lot)
Loving this piece- it would be perfect for a small entry
2:00pm- head back home to get ready to pick my daughter up from school.
3:00pm-6:00pm is run around like a mad woman trying to clean up the house, get kids snacks, help with homework, get kids more snacks (these kids eat a lot), feed the dog, get dinner started, toss in a load of laundry- (that will sit in the washer for two days), check emails, read blogs, get on Pinterest…
7:00-8:30pm Bathe kids, get kids to bed (a feat in itself)
9:00pm- either settle on the sofa with hubby to catch up on DVR shows or back to the laptop to figure out what Im going to post tomorrow or get on Pinterest…again…
10:30pm- Im fried- I can’t stay up late like I use to- so Im off to bed–ok with my phone to look at Pinterest…again…send some half-wit tweets….check email…*zzzzzzzzzz*
Oh wait! i forgot the most import part! My Shoes!! These are my newest faves- they are soooo comfy— Michaels Kors ballet flat. I got mine at Macey’s and used a 20% coupon! Score!!
Thank you Camila for having me today and being able to share my crazy day!
