SITS Photo Challenge #5: A Day In The Life

The fifth assignment for the SITS Photo Challenge was to photograph “A day in the life”. You didn’t necessarily have to post the photos, but I found the assignment interesting and wanted to share a day in my life. I didn’t take photos of everything, but I tried to capture the highlights of the day. This was how we spent last Friday.


7:45 a.m. Breakfast! Zucchini bread with cream cheese and gummy vitamins.
8:20 a.m. Combing/fixing Olivia’s hair. It takes awhile, because it is so long, and we use a LOT of detangler, but I have to make sure I get all the tangles out.
8:40 a.m. Every day before she has to go to school, I take a photo of Olivia’s daily outfit choice. Sophia likes in on the action. This is them being silly. “Take a picture of us with the books in front of our face!” They don’t even know about NoFaces! but they are contributing to the cause.

8:55 a.m. We had to park over 2 blocks away, because of a TV show filming at Olivia’s preschool (oh the perks of living in Southern California!), had to hoof it to get to school on time.
9:15 a.m. After dropping sister off, and taking care of some parent committee obligations, Sophia and I headed back to the car, more leisurely this time. We even stopped to take shadow photos. Note: My diaper bag looks gigantic.


9:30-9:50 a.m. We went to get the oil changed in the Routan. While we waited for our turn, I unbuckled Sophia and we just talked and hung out. She was silly and wiggly, but we had a good time.
9:55-10:10 a.m. Got the oil change process started, so we hung out at the bench beside the shop and Sophia had a snack and doodled.

11:00 a.m. Got the oil changed, a complimentary car wash and came home to shop vac the interior of the Routan. When that was all done, I finally got the chance to eat something for “breakfast”. Yummy zucchini bread w/ cream cheese. It was delicious. Seriously, Look no further than Suzanne’s “Healthy(er) Zucchini Bread” recipe for your zucchini bread needs.
12:30-1:30 p.m. I decided to treat the girls to lunch out, and we ALL wanted to go to the Corner Bakery, but it was packed, so we ended up at Denny’s. The girls ate outside of their norm, and loved every minute of it.

2-4 p.m. NAPTIME. It was glorious, and started about an hour later than usual, but I spent that time vegging and trying to straighten the house.


5-7 p.m. I let the girls watch television after nap and then they decided to work on their Dr. Seuss Magnet craft (Thank you, Michael’s!). After that was done, I started dinner (I made enchiladas using leftovers from Pioneer Woman’s Spicy Dr. Pepper Shredded Pork that I made earlier in the week–YUM). While I made dinner, Olivia worked in her math workbook and Sophia worked on perfecting the letters of her name.

9:30 p.m. We allowed the girls to stay up past their bedtime to watch Tangled (again). It was a long…but awesome day.

    Thanks my love! I didn’t share ALL of them, b/c it got ridiculous, but I think this gives a pretty good idea of what we do daily 😉

  • I don’t think anything could be cuter than those pink little Converse!

    The converse became an obsession after awhile. So cute! Now they have the YGG vans, so whenever they decided to wear their old converse, I am sure to take photos (since it is so rare these days).

    Thank you for stopping by!

  • A great day in the life entry! I really enjoyed it and all your photos!

    I am *so* in love with your “no faces” method I may eventually adopt it for my own blog (I will credit you like all-get-out.) I’m working on a “no faces” entry right now too.

    So many parents are concerned about their privacy and the privacy of their children that I think this style of photography could really catch on in blogs. Have you thought about doing an entry with tips for getting shots of your little ones this way?

    Thank you so much!

    I would love for you to adopt “No Faces”! And no credit required, I am sure I’m not the first to think of it 🙂 But if you want to send them my way, I won’t complain either 😉

    I have not thought about doing an entry with tips, but I think that may have to be in the works. I will give YOU credit for giving me the excellent idea! 🙂 I’ll also send you a link when I’m able to get that post together. 🙂

    Thanks again for stopping by!

    I use a lot of smileys. Think there is a 12-step program for that?

    Thank you! I think my daughter LOVED taking them, so I’m going to have to make an effort to do more of these.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  • I haven’t been able to participate much with the photos, but I’m taking everything in. I too love your “no face” look; along with the pink converse look. You have a beautiful family!

    Thank you so much! I’m trying to keep up with the challenge as much as possible, but I know that my assignments are a little big later than some. It’s just fun to try!

    Oh the pink converse are a favorite subject around here. Converse in general, really 🙂 And thank you for the sweet words, they are very appreciated!
