A Day in the Life of Lindsay Adams . . .

I got this idea from my friend, Suzanne's blog. I had a blast reading and looking at her pictures so I decided to do it myself! Here's how it's done: for one day you document your life with pictures and post them on your blog, with commentary of course. So here goes! Yesterday was Thursday, June 19, 2008 and here is what my day looked like:

Brian and I woke up about 9:45 am. (Sleeping in like this only happens during baseball season because we don't get in bed until really late.). I read the newspaper while Brian ate breakfast. We read and eat breakfast in bed almost every morning. However, our reading material varies, it's not always the newspaper.



















We like to go for walks in the park, and do so at least 4 times a week. This park is really nice, so I go walking on the trails frequently for exercise. We walked 2.4 miles today! We always see wildlife at this park too. The usuals are groundhogs, deer, turtles and geese.


Since we're not together for dinner, I make lunch our "big meal" of the day. Here I am, working hard in the kitchen!



Today I made feta chicken, asparagus, rolls, and fruit.



Clean up is my least favorite part of making lunch, and unfortunately, I rarely get any help from my hubby.


Around 2 pm I have to drop Brian off at the field. Bye buddy, have a good day at "work!"




I make my way to the library where I don't find any of the books on my "must read" list. Since they were already checked out, I chose another book that looked promising. It's called, "The Bible Jesus Read" by Philip Yancey. And yes, I felt rather silly taking my own picture in the library so I made sure no one was looking when I took it.


When I get home it's time to get some work done. My boss gives me work that I can do either by phone or on my laptop.



Today I didn't have very much work to do, so after an hour on the computer, I spent about 45 minutes at the pool reading my new book, which I'm really liking!


Later I jump in the shower and get ready so I look half way decent finally!



I had a phone meeting scheduled with my boss at 6 pm.



I hadn't watched the news in a while, so I caught up on the local and national news. Of course I have to catch up on the celebrity news too, so I watched "The Insider!"


Then I had some leftovers for dinner!


At this point in the day, it's time to go to the ballpark and watch the game! But, today I had to run an errand on my way. I had to return a movie to the Red Box. Red Boxes are great because they are always located in convenient places, like the grocery store, and it only costs $1 to rent a movie!



I made it to the ballpark where I get to watch a baseball game and socialize with my girlfriends!




This is my friend, Heather, and her little girl, Cadence. I love playing with Cadence, she's a lot of fun and full of personality!



After the game we went home to unwind. Usually we hang out with our roommate, Matt Hagan, but he went out on the town with some other guys on this particular night. Brian and I watched a little tv. Usually we watch Baseball Tonight, Dirty Jobs, Man vs. Wild, and/or Deadliest Catch, but none of those were on last night (except for Baseball Tonight) so we ended up flipping channels most of the time.


Then it's time to get ready for bed: wash my face, brush my teeth, etc.


And give my hubby a big smooch before falling asleep!

Lindsay!! I didn't know that you had a blog either! I'm so glad we have found each others little corners of the www. :) This post was so cute! I've always wondered who those people are that take walks during my work hours, maybe they are all baseball players and their wives. :)

Suzanne said...

I love this!!! It gives you so much insight to what your life is like or at least a day of it. How many nights a week does Brian have a game? oh and I loved the photo of you in the library!! that was my favorite.

He has a game every single night! About once a month they have a day off, but that's about it. Crazy huh?

You are the cutest wife I know! I loved seeing your day - your lunch is your big meal of the day, too cute! And how did you take all those pics of yourself - the serious ones at the computer, the conf. call, I mean, I'm really impressed! I felt like I was a fly on the wall. buzz. :) (I miss you so much)
