ten on ten

This month the 10th was on a Tuesday. I try to get out of the house as fast as I can in the morning so I pack myself a lunch the night before. That way all I have to do is make coffee (thank God for the Keurig):

I have been waking up at 6 am to get ready and then if Etta isn't awake yet I go into her room, wake her up and nurse her.

Do any of you remember the Microsoft Zune? I had a Zune in college instead of an iPod and let me tell you: that bad boy was a TANK. I probably dropped it at least once per week and it stayed strong. I recently rediscovered it in my basement but couldn't find the charge cable. On a limb, I ordered a replacement cable from Amazon to see if it would still work after sitting for 7+ years with nary a charge. Behold! It liiiiiives! (talk about reliving my college memories through this baby):

Since I am always in a rush to get out the door in the morning, I also eat breakfast at work. Being on Weight Watchers again poses its challenges in this department (when I am home I will make myself scrambled eggs and turkey bacon usually) so I have been finding portable egg breakfast recipes and making them on Sundays for the week. I made these spinach quiche cupcakes and YOU GUYS. They are SO good! And at 1 Point+ each you can't beat it.

I pump three times a day at work. My first time is at 9 am. I really do love my breast pump. Totally blows the Medela Pump in Style out of the water. Not only is it more efficient, but it has a closed system and it's less expensive. No competition whatsoever.

As soon as I get home from work it's family time.

After some initial cuddling we have dinner. On the menu was chicken teriyaki with rice, green beans and asparagus for me and a protein "chicken" patty for Jon. The kids had chicken nuggets and salad. Once dinner was done we had play time.

After play time was bath time.

Once the kids were all snug in their beds I made bottles and packed my lunch for tomorrow.

I finished the night with a mudslide, turkey bacon, and The Goldbergs* with my main squeeze.

*except within moments of writing this Etta woke up crying and we called it for the night
