Does anyone else just love peeking in on another person’s day? Wondering what they do all day? It has been over a month since I quit my corporate America job to become a full-time blogger. So, let’s chat and walk through what a day in the life of this blogger looks like, including an easy to make meal consisting of delicious Ling Ling® Ramen!
There is so much that goes on behind the scenes and as a creature of habit and routine, this new transition has been a little challenging.
I spend most of my workdays sitting at our kitchen island with the laptop. [Yes, even though we did just create an office space in our guest room for me.]
6:30-7:30 – I get the kids up, breakfast, lunch boxes packed, dressed and out the door for school.
8:00 – back home to clean up the kitchen a little bit and maybe throw in a load of laundry and eat breakfast
8:30 – this is when I typically start working for the day; check emails, follow up on any brand partnerships, respond to comments/DMs on Instagram.
9- 10:30 – SNACK TIME, depending on the day this is when I will either draft blog posts or run errands for a project.
10:30- 12 – hop back on IG to engage a little more, comments, watch stories, etc.; begin my DIY project
12:00 LUNCH TIME! I have 6 alarms set on my phone to remind me to eat throughout the day. If I don’t then I’ll binge eat in the late afternoon.
I don’t usually have a lot of time here, so I’ll grab something from the fridge or freezer.
I picked up Ling Ling® Ramen during a recent trip to Publix. You can find them in the freezer aisle or even order them for delivery online. They’re NEW there and I was really excited to try it.
You get authentic Asian quality with gourmet flavor from freezer to hot and ready in under 5 minutes in the microwave! The textured noodles and chunks of chicken paired with the flavorful broth hits the right spot.
My husband will also grab one of these from the freezer to take with him to work. With our schedule differences, we don’t get to eat out very often, so Ling Ling Ramen is exactly what we need.
While I eat, I’ll hop back on the computer and check any incoming emails for projects in the works.
Switch laundry from washer to dryer.
1- 2:45 – crunch time. I need to wrap up or come to a good stopping point in my project before going to pick up the kids from school
3:30 get back home with the kids; snack time, free time for them to play and me to finish up laundry or any other housework I keep neglecting.
4:30- 8:30 family time. This is when we focus on homework, usually a quick dinner before soccer practice or a GS meeting. Sometimes the kids will make their own dinner (like breakfast) so I can grab a quick meal like Ling Ling Ramen.
8:45 – 10:00 engage on Instagram, edit photos, wrap up any blog posts, check emails (again)
Not quite as glamorous as you may have thought right?! But I love the flexibility for family time and being able to use my creative side.
