Sunday Funday

Yesterday was a such a fun day! It was one of those days I needed without knowing it.

Ryan and I got to meet up with a college friend for lunch. He was passing through Owensboro on the way back to his summer job and our schedules worked out perfectly for him to meet us at Buffalo Wild Wings. We ate too much food and spent almost two hours catching up and reminiscing on our college days.

After lunch, I said bye to the guys, while they hung out some more. Once our friend left, Ryan had a tee time with some of the guys from his work, so Murphy and I went to the park! Since the humidity has broken, the weather has been perfect. We walked the trails, sat by the pond and watched the ducks and roamed the empty baseball fields for about an hour before coming home.

Murphy was exhausted after our adventure, so he slept on the couch, while I did some meal prepping. After I got breakfast made for the week, I went out to our home gym (garage) and knocked out a couple miles and some inverted pull-ups.

Once Ryan got home, we ate tacos on the couch and watched a couple episodes of Parks and Rec. Instead of going to bed at a normal hour, we then decided to stay up way too late and watch random, hilarious YouTube videos.

Have a great Monday! Let’s make this week great!

Day in the Life — May 2017

It’s been five months since my last Day in The Life post so I thought it’d be fun to change things up today and share a glimpse into my Tuesday. If you want to peek behind the curtain more often, follow me (@megkayrich) on Twitter and Instagram!

6 AM: My alarm goes off. I debate sleeping in and just straightening my hair, but decide to get up and curl it instead.

6:30 AM: After my hair is fixed and I’m dressed, I take Murphy out for a little walk and for him to do his business. He is not a morning pup, so once he’s done, he gets back in bed with Ryan while I tidy up the house (wash any stray dishes, prep lunches, etc) and fix his KONG toys for the day.

7 AM: Finish up any chores, scroll through social media, get the paper and head out the door. Ryan works later in the day, so I leave him and Murphy in bed for a couple more hours.

7:15ish AM: Lately breakfast has been very grab-and-go. It’s a very busy season at my job, and I like to get to work early and get started on some of my big projects before the office gets really busy. 

7:35 AM: Get to work. It’s me, my boss and one reporter. It’s nice and quiet. I answer some emails and get started on work.

9 AM: Most of the reporters and my other co-workers are in the office by now. We talk about the local news, what’s new on Netflix and any other office gossip. I also try to take a couple laps around the building at this point. I hate sitting for so long. I really wish we could have standup desks.

9:30 AM – Noon: Work work work work work work. Lots of emails, phone calls, meeting, and writing.

12:15 PM: Head home for lunch. Let Murphy out of his crate, play fetch, eat lunch.

1:30 PM: Back to work. More writing and meetings.

3:30ish PM: Snack time! Great Harvest banana chocolate chip muffins are the best afternoon treat.

5 PM: Leave work and head home!

5:15ish PM: Play some fetch with Murphy before starting my workout. Lately, I’ve been doing 2-3 miles on the treadmill, some free weights and abs.

6 PM: Start dinner. Tonight is tacos!

6:35 PM: Ryan gets home! We eat dinner and watch some tv.

7:30 PM: We stretch and sometimes do pushups and crunches in our living room. We love some healthy competition. I also lose when it comes to pushups.

8:15 PM: Watch a few episodes of The Office, our favorite show. No matter how many times we watch it, it never gets old.

9:30-10 PM: Get ready for bed. Lights out.

Pretty normal schedule to me, but I still love these posts. What did your day look like?
