When I think of bloggers one of the names that immediately pops in my head is Michele from My Notting Hill. We started blogging at around the same time and at that time there was a group of 10 or so newbie’s that were constantly on each other blogs commenting and thus many friendships were born. I love getting my daily design dose on My Notting Hill because Michele likes to spotlight happenings and designers in the DC area. I started my college career in D.C. ( I later transferred to a school in NY) and it will always have a soft spot in my heart. It’s fun to see what new shops are popping up and how Michelle enjoys her days there.
So, sit back and enjoy a day in her life!
6:30 am – wake up, 7:00 am – finally get out of bed, say hi to my husband and kids and get ready for work. Grab a liquid breakfast-to-go. My husband made me a Kefir yogurt shake w/frozen berries. Love this & him for making it for me!
7:50 am: Out the door. Since this is In Her Shoes, I thought I would highlight my super comfortable and very authentic espadrilles from EM & M. Today I have a VTC meeting with a project team in Atlanta so I can dress a bit more casually.
I actually love my 9 mile commute from N. Arlington into DC via the Roosevelt Bridge over the Potomac. Off to the right is the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial. I never get tired of this view.
TURN LEFT = Paying Work. In the morning I provide consultation on a 360 Degree Leadership Assessment program, conduct a dry-run of a webinar I’ll be hosting this Friday and have a VTC meeting with an Atlanta project team to help them check-in on their teamwork and progress.
12:00 pm: Now I can TURN RIGHT – It’s a great perk that I can head over to the Design Center whenever I’m working with this client. Design is my hobby and anytime I can squeeze it into my day I try.
Loving this display. This summer we’re renovating out basement and I’m going with a red and blue chinoiserie look. My favorite is the pattern on the fabric that’s suspended. DIY Thought – could this be created with fabric paint on a painter’s drop cloth??
7:15 pm: As soon as the contractors leave, I head to the house next door for my new nightly ritual of checking out the progress. It was bought by a house flipper who is adding a second story, etc. Hmmm, I don’t hate it so that’s promising…
8:00 pm – Take a 1 hour walk around the neighborhood, listen to the last part of the Red Sox game with Dan (go Sox!)
10:15 pm: Day’s over. Camila thanks for including me in this feature!
Whew! Like always I’m exhausted by seeing what Michele accomplishes in one day.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend. I know I’m excited to celebrated Father’s day. My dad had a rough couple of months health wise and I’m so happy that he is back on track. Can’t wait to celebrate with him!
