I set alarms for 5:45, 6:00, and 6:15am. On my best day? I wake up at 5:45. On pretty much every day? I wake up at 6:15.
Yep, just like a dog. Sometimes I make a loud obnoxious noise too.
I’m not up until I have a song on. Sometimes it’s Korn. Sometime’s it’s Bon Iver. But if my Spotify app on my phone isn’t up, neither am I.
Feed and water my children
Because seriously if I don’t do this the second that I walk out of my bedroom Stevie will scream at me until I do, and Presley will whine.
How am I supposed to drink my morning tea without hot water? I toss my teabag in a mug so it’s ready to go.
This is the only sure way to know that I’m not going to crawl back into bed and fall back asleep. Tie some eucalyptus on your shower head for an extra wake up call.
I either spray some rose water and moisturize, or take a little extra time and do a quick face mask.
Steep, Sip & Relax
Add a little honey while I’m at it. This is usually the part of my morning where I sit in my robe with my hair up in a towel, drink my tea and catch up with texts I may have missed, social media, and emails.
Depending on the day this can take anywhere from 5 minutes to 15 minutes.
Make my bed
Without fail, I feel incomplete leaving my house in the morning if my bed’s not made.
Put my big girl pants on
And by big girl pants I probably mean a pair of leggings with a long oversized top with a pair of flats.
Until I wake up tomorrow and do it again.
