Mrs. Productivity.

Yesterday I had one majorly productive day.
The kind of day when you're kicking so much booty, you add
tasks you've already completed to your to-do list, 
just so you can have the satisfaction of checking them off 
(and so you have a visual aid when you brag to your husband 
about just how much you got done). 
First, I had a little early morning date with coffee and my novel-in-progress.
I finished reading through the first draft 
and I've moved on to making a few slight changes in the plot.

By lunchtime the temperature was up to 75 degrees,
so I threw on a swim suit, packed up the laundry and ran downstairs,
where my pasty-white skin and I lay poolside with some writing inspiration 
while the laundry washed and dried.

The afternoon was a whirlwind of accomplishments.
I put away the clean laundry (you'd think this would be included in the task of "doing the laundry" but in my world, this is an accomplishment in itself), cleaned the bathroom (cleaning toilets literally makes me gag, just FYI), and sweated it out with Jillian Michaels.
To top it off, I made a delicious, healthy dinner for us to devour (see recipe below!).

 I am super-wife - hear me roar! 


  1. dude. CONGRATS! days like this are always so awesome, and refreshing! i had a total "ME" day on monday and boy.. did i NEED it! bahaha

    but it did NOT end with a pool..

    it DID end with beers with my bff, so i guess that counts for something, right?

  2. Wow, productive day!! Love it. Impressed you are writing a novel and I am jealous of your time pool side. My skin needs a few hours of that too :)

  3. So awesome!!! You're writing a novel? Love it!!

  4. haha lucky you! we, over here are not there yet, with tanning outdoors

  5. Looks beautiful sitting by the pool!

  6. What are you reading? That's so great that you're writing a book-- please let me know when it's out!

    I'm a fellow English nerd. Still in school getting my BA with hopes of being a writer as well :)


  7. yeah for a productive day!! I want to be laying by a pool! : ) and washing laundry and folding in one day is an accomplishment. I did a jillian micheals video today too - I love her videos but do find her quite annoying sometimes!

  8. My life is in serious need of one of these days right now..... sounds like an awesome day!

    xo, Natalie

  9. That is so cool your writing a novel! Nothing is better than a day in sun!

  10. if I am able to get the laundry back in the drawers after washing them, within 24 hours, it's a major accomplishment!!

  11. So jealous! Cleveland's weather is not quite 75 and sunny yet..and washing AND drying AND folding all in the same day?! That's my idea of a productive day!

  12. Yay for a productive day! And sitting poolside looks so nice and relaxing :)

  13. You are super wife, wow. I wish we had sunshine like that!! So jealous. Enjoy. As I go shovel snow.

  14. I LOVE days like this!! And you are too funny...adding tasks that you have already completed to your list just to feel the satisfaction of crossing them off...I'm so guilty of that! :-)
