A Day in the Life

Welcome to a day in the life of us!

I thought it would be fun to document a random day in the life of us! These are the days I am definitely going to want to look back on and remember because I am loving this precious quality time that I have with Lincoln.

I decided to just pick a random day when we didn't have anything crazy or eventful planned. I wanted get a snapshot of a perfectly normal and simple day! 

So here it is... Wednesday, July 20, 2016.


I woke up around 7:15am to Lincoln babbling into the baby monitor. I got out of bed and went to get him. Going into his room in the morning is one of my favorite parts of the day. I love seeing his smiling little face!

After I changed and fed him, I made myself some coffee.

As my coffee was brewing, Landon got home from his morning walk with Kimber. He was super excited to show me that one of his Pokemon evolved (or something like that). I'm not playing Pokemon Go yet, but it seems like the rest of the WORLD is. 

I made Landon and I some oatmeal for breakfast, and when I went to put the milk away, I noticed I put the brown sugar in there by accident! Oops! #tiredmama

Lincoln and I headed to Stroller Strides class after breakfast and got a great workout in!

We stayed after class for playgroup and made chicken handprint pictures!

On the way home, I stopped by Starbucks and sat in the car for about 30 minutes while the baby slept! Does anyone else do this?! Sometimes I feel like it is the only time I can drink my coffee and have some quiet time to myself. 
(Ignore my post-workout appearance)

I made this DELICIOUS yogurt bowl for a snack. Vanilla Greek yogurt, apple, and vanilla granola with pumpkin seeds. YUM!

Then, Lincoln and I played for a bit.

Eventually both of the babies (Kimber and Lincoln) went down for a nap, so I did some laundry and picked up the house.

I also shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Oops.

When Lincoln woke up, he cruised around in his walker while I did the dishes.

Landon got home from work, and we decided to head down to the beach and let Kimber run around for a bit.

And, we ended the day with some Mexican food! It doesn't get any better than that! (Yes, I wiped down/disinfected the table. Don't worry everyone.)

After dinner, we put Lincoln to bed, watched TV, ate some ice cream, then went to bed!

There's an average, typical Wednesday in the Erickson house!  I know to some of you, this may seem like a pretty boring, uneventful day. But, I can honestly say, there is nothing I would rather be doing than spending time with my little fam. This was a PERFECT day to me :)

See you all next week with a 9 month baby update!


  1. Our babies must be right around the same age! My little man turns 9 months on the 27th!

    1. Hi Katie!! Yes! They totally are close. Lincoln will be 10 months old on 8/2! How fun! :)
