Saturday Snapshot: A Day in My Life

Yesterday, I participated in an Instagram challenge hosted by @kristinagrum to document an entire day in my life. Using the hashtag #fulldays, we shared a photo just about every hour of the day. I thought it would be fun to share my photos today with Saturday Snapshot, which is hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads. Enjoy!

8:00am - Kids are up and eating, getting ready for school.

 Starting my workday in my home office with some coffee and a brand new to do list.

On Friday mornings I volunteer at the school doing a literature circle with second graders.
We're reading Bunnicula.

Work, work, work.

Lunch break! Ham and pickle on a sandwich thin with Goldfish and seltzer.

Worked on a blog post (this one!!!) during lunch.

Still working away. This is the view out my office window.
Trees are getting their leaves and the pine pollen is collecting on the pond.

Walked through a swirl of pollen to get to the bus stop. I could feel it in my lungs!!

5:00pm - Work is done so it's time to read!

8:00pm -  Spent the past 2 hours at Carrabbas and forgot to take pics! Now listening to this guy practice piano.

Got one kid to bed. The other is camping with dad. Checking out Facebook before settling down with my book!
Decided I needed a change so started Me Before You by Jojo Moyes.

11:47pm - Just one more chapter ...

At 1:10am, I finally stopped reading and went to bed!! That one more chapter turned into five, which is pretty typical. This was a lot of fun. I'm so glad I joined in yesterday and plan to do something similar again in the future.

If you're on Instagram, come follow me and I'll follow you back!


  1. Bunnicula!! What a blast from the past, ha!
    Very impressed with your little guy's posture at the piano. :)

  2. Thanks for sharing your day. Sounds like you kept busy!

  3. That is a fun sharing. I really need to master Instagram. I just need to jump in and do it!

  4. A fun picture post. Good to fit in reading to such a busy day.

  5. What an interesting project. The photo that most hit home was your son at the piano. Looks just like the piano etc that are right behind me.

  6. I love those day posts. It is so much fun seeing how others spend their days. It makes me feel more connected in a way.

    Enjoy Me Before You! It is an amazing book!

  7. Great post! I participated in a Day in the Life blog event recently and also enjoyed it. Looks like you had a good day - I've really been wanting to read Me Before You, for years now!


    Book By Book

Banned Books Week: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park

This is the end of Banned Books Week and unfortunately, I haven't had a lot of time to write about banned books this year. But I did want to include at least one post about it, so today I wanted to share one of the book series that it seems most people are surprised to find on the list: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park.

According to Wikipedia:
The Junie B. Jones series came in at #71 on the American Library Association's list of the Top 100 Banned or Challenged Books from 2000-2009. Reasons cited are poor social values taught by the books and Junie B. Jones not being considered a good role model due to her mouthiness and bad spelling/grammar. This is an interesting example of a banned book. Many times there are serious, controversial topics featured in books that are challenged. Things like homosexuality, drugs, vulgar language, etc. You can actually understand why people may not want their children to read those books, and why they may challenge their inclusion in school libra…

Zoe is a typical working mother who takes the Underground through London to her office every day.

But she starts to realize this may not be a good idea after seeing her own photo in an advertisement in the newspaper. Another woman who appears in the advertisement is murdered and Zoe starts to ge…
