A Day in the Life of a Lady Geek: October

Oct 28, 2015


Yay, it's finally time for our A Day in the Life posts! I've been excited for this ever since Dina mentioned it in the Female Geek Bloggers community last month, and I got even more excited when she officially announced it on her blog a couple weeks ago. The concept of this project is to pick a day and take a photo each waking hour. I took my photos this past Saturday since I work full time during the week and can't take photos at my place of work, so you all get to see how uneventful my weekends are, haha!

10 a.m.

As you can see, my first photo posted was from 10 a.m. Yeah, I sleep in on the weekends, don't judge me! I opened up my mail to find my TARDIS Funko waiting for me, and I figured that until the Doctor came to take his rightful place alongside his time machine, Doc could stand there for now=P I got my special edition Doc in this month's LootCrate, and he's so adorable!

11 a.m.

Time for coffee and writing in my journal! I try to write a little bit every day, it's great for relieving some of my anxiety. The coffee, on the other hand, completely contradicts that...but I love it anyway.

12 p.m.

I was still lounging around in my jammies, watching 30 Rock and loving the whole not being at work thing. This little lady came poking around for attention...she never likes it when I spend too long not loving on her.


1 p.m.

I had to include two photos for this hour because I couldn't resist that sweet face! I went to the backyard to work on my weekly planner, and was greeted by my doggy niece, Bailey. We were dog-sitting for the weekend and let me tell you, this girl is a handful! She's so adorable though that I don't mind being tuckered out after spending just a couple minutes playing with her, haha.

2 p.m.

I've been running the Halloween dungeon every day trying to get the super sweet Headless Horseman mount, but no luck so far. I did want to pose for some screenies with my Hallowed Helm and fun, decorated garrison though...love that they added decorations this year!

3 p.m.

Does this happen to any of you kitty mamas? I'm just minding my own business, looking at blog stuff, and kitty plops right down on my keyboard. Such a brat!


4 p.m.

Alright, two photos again but how could I resist? She's such a stinkin' cutie, curled up on our patio furniture, just watching her people sit and relax. Still bright and sunny here in Orange County, shorts weather all day long! We love spending time outside on the weekends since we spend the majority of our weekdays inside.

5 p.m.

We went to a local restaurant called Slater's 50/50 to celebrate my sister-in-law's birthday. Gary and I are both vegetarian, and he always has fun coming up with names for our custom veggie burgers. He got a kick out of 'Western Vegan Cheeseburger' because, you know, vegans don't eat cheese. Haha...(eyeroll emoji)

6 p.m.

When we got home, we relaxed around the hookah for a while. I convinced my husband that we needed a frilly, pretty hookah and he actually went for it<3 I'm so in love with how adorable it is! Hookah's an awful habit though, so we try not to smoke it very often. Weekends only!

7 p.m.

Tres Leches cake for the birthday girl! It was SO GOOD. We actually still have some left over, and we've been eating tiny little slices since Saturday...yum. If you've never tried Tres Leches cake, you seriously need to. So moist and delicious!

8 p.m.

Time for beer and more relaxing in the backyard. I did stay up after 8 p.m. (I swear!) but it was just so dark and quite frankly, uneventful so I didn't take any more photos. I mean, unless you guys want to see what it's like when I stay up until two in the morning playing World of Warcraft? I could show you next time!

Really though, this was so much fun. I hope that I get to spend some time learning a little more about my fellow bloggers through your photos today! And if you didn't participate in this month's A Day in the Life, you should totally join in next month. Check out Dina's original post about this project here if you'd like to learn more about it=) Hope you're having a happy hump day!
