Evening Routine Vlog

I love watching other people’s vlogs. There’s just something about seeing what other people do in their day-to-day lives that intrigues me. With that being said, I’m trying to get into vlogging more (or at least doing more “My Day” type blog posts). This post and video was a way to get my toes wet. I filmed it while no one else was around and I only did it for a short amount of time. Still, I did it! Hopefully there will be more to come!

In the video, I am making dinner which I mention is a blog post already. You can find my sausage and veggies recipe here.

If you’d like to see what I get up to in the evenings after work, check out my video here!

What does your evening routine look like?

A Day in the Life 1-23-18

This is a post I’ve been meaning to do for a while now, since these are my favorite types of posts to read on other people’s blogs. My life isn’t particularly exciting, but this is what a typical Tuesday looks like for me.


My alarm goes off at 6:00 am and I am never ready for it. I usually snooze it once or twice if I’m being honest. They I take Mila out and give her breakfast. I make myself coffee and drink it while I’m getting ready for work.

I leave for work around 7:20 and get there at 7:45. I’m a kindergarten teacher so my days are filled with runny noses, crafts, and endless stories. Today we were working on the letter O so we did an octopus craft. I love how they turned out!



I had an alarm set on my phone to remind me to take pictures for this blog post, but of course I still forgot! After work I went to the post office and then to Wegmans because we are on our last roll of toilet paper and that’s a situation no one wants to find themselves in! I totally forgot to take pictures of my errands, but just picture me buying toilet paper.

I got home around 4:30 and took Mila on a nice long walk around the apartment complex. I was feeling pretty tired so I made myself a cup of coffee and had a snack of pretzels and cheese. I just like to chill and watch YouTube videos while I eat my snack.


At this point I really meant to go to the gym, but I was still waiting for the caffeine to kick in. So I sat on the couch and did some work for Usborne Books. I have a few online parties coming up that I’m getting ready for.


Around 5:30 ish I finally got myself up and went to the gym! Our apartment complex has a little gym similar to a hotel gym so I’ve been trying to go there lately. I’ve actually gone the past three days! Here’s a very flattering picture of me at the gym.


I was STARVING when I got back from the gym and there was leftover rice in the fridge. I also made some chicken dumplings. Since my boyfriend is on a business trip this week I’m all alone so I just watched more YouTube while I was eating my dinner.


After dinner I facetimed with my boyfriend and cuddled with Mila. I’m currently sitting right now at the end of this day writing this post. I’ll most likely just shower, take Mila for another long walk, and then read in bed. My feet are so tired today so I’m really looking forward to that!

Let me know if you like these kinds of posts – I had a lot of fun writing this one and I’d love to do more! Have a great day/night!

Pupdate ~ Mila


It’s been almost two months since I have updated this blog about my wonderful puppy Mila! She is around 8 months old now and is only slightly bigger than when you last saw her.

She is spayed now and completely healed from her surgery. I have to admit though, it was pretty funny when she had to wear the cone! For a few weeks after her surgery, she was getting up in the middle of the night to go outside. She also went through a week where she was up at 4:00 am to go out and I couldn’t get back to sleep after that. For the most part, the earliest she wakes up to go out is 6:00 and sometimes she will sleep until 7:30 on the weekends!


She eats the same amount of food (1 cup twice a day, you can find the food here). We have noticed that she has filled out some from when we first got her, but she runs around too much to be chunky!

Speaking of running around, she has figured out that I’m the “mom” and she comes to me when she’s tired or when she’s feeling gentle. She never bites me when I play with her. My boyfriend is definitely the playmate. They wrestle and she gets a little more rough with him than she does with me. Sometimes they can really get each other going and she gets super hyper.

She still can do “sit” and “shake” and now she consistently responds to “crate” by going right into her crate (even if she’s not happy about it). Every day when I leave for work she still whines but it’s quieter than it used to be. I turn on an old radio that plays all day for her so she can at least hear voices. She also gets walked every day by our dog walker. She loves Mila so much and spends a lot of time with her and is always sending pictures. She is still so excited to see me when I get home!

Basically, she is the perfect puppy! I hope to be doing more pupdates on her and I will definitely show her when she is a year old!




Meet Mila | Puppy Update


Guess what? We got a puppy! Her name is Mila and she is around 6 months old. She is a mix between a black lab and a chow, although we mostly see the black lab in her.

We got her 7 weeks ago from a woman on Facebook who was giving her away. Actually, we got her on the first day of school, so that was very stressful for me – new kindergarteners and a new puppy all on the same day!

We started working on training her right away, since she was so young. her previous owners must have worked a little bit with her because she was house-trained fairly easily. She has also mastered sit and shake and goes right in her crate when it’s mealtime.

Speaking of mealtime she eats a cup of food twice a day (with lots of treats in between). We have been giving her the “I and love and you” dog food which you can find here. We like switching up the flavors when we buy a new bag, but she seems to love it all.

Thankfully, Mila has always slept through the night while she’s been with us. She enjoys sleeping at the end of the bed and occasionally she will be a little cuddly.

I also filmed a video for my YouTube channel so make sure you check that out! It includes a little more information on her including a vet update. I hope to be doing more updates on her as she grows!
