Today’s featured lady made me reminisce about the time I spent living in D.C. It was only for a little over a year, but I truly enjoyed my time living in our nation’s capital and would move back in a heart beat. Meg from Mimi and Meg gets to call D.C. home and works as a business consultant and artist. It was fun to see what her day comprises of. Lately my days have been mostly spent in front of the computer so I was totally jealous reading about all of outings in one day.
Hello! Meg here from MIMI+MEG! I’m so excited to be a part of the In Her Shoes column. My days vary but this is a good peek at a typical day. My husband wakes up at 5:30 a.m. to get on the road by 6 a.m. The traffic in the DC area is crazy! Sometimes I can fall back asleep. When I can’t I just get a very early start to the day with some green tea.
Usually after making tea, I start working on blog posts with the news on in the background.
Straighten up my office, go through mail, bills, lists, and get ready for the day.
I prefer doing my workout in the morning, recently it’s been Bikram yoga. I bring two bkr water bottles for during and after yoga because of how much I sweat (the room is heated to 105 degrees!).
Right after my workout I shower, and get ready for the day while sipping on coffee
and listening to The Today Show. Kathie and Hoda crack me up.
I recently purchased some new makeup that makes getting ready a little more fun.
Pack my laptop bag with all the necessities for working with my clients for that day.
Laptop, client folders, mouse, favorite pens, chargers…
Traveling in the DC area midday is usually much easier than at rush hour.
So I tend to try for late morning travel.
After the metro ride, I take the escalator up to Dupont Circle to meet with one of my clients.
Comfy flats are a must! I wear these Tory Burch flats all the time!
Today, I get to walk by this gorgeous fountain in Dupont Circle on a beautiful day.
Then head over to Georgetown to meet with another client and attend an event.
Pick up a gunmetal pouch at the Refinery29 DC launch party at Madewell.
My new pouch holds a lot of business cards!
Head home, take off my jewelry, and change into comfy clothes.
Start laying out what I’m going to pack for a wedding we are traveling to Texas for this weekend.
Fix dinner for me and my husband.
Mixed greens, feta and champagne dressing with garlic, yellow pepper chicken.
Open a bottle of Pinot Noir for dinner after a long day.
And after the dishes, more blogging, working, and maybe an episode of something on my DVR, I curl up in bed with one of the many magazines in my stack to be read.
On days I don’t meet with clients I work from my condo, brew a pot of coffee that I sip on all morning (I love coffee), listen to music, do the laundry and stuff around the house while I work. Some of my favorite days are spent painting, or when I have lunch or happy hour with friends I’ve met since I moved to the DC area.
Thanks for spending a day with me!
A big thanks to Meg for sharing her day with us! TGIF to all of you.
