I feel like everywhere I look on You Tube lately there are videos from bloggers about their morning routine. Unfortunately, every video is like beautiful looking women with perfect skin who are making twenty ingredient omelettes and spending three hours in pilates before they start their day. My morning routine doesn’t look anything like their morning routine! In fact, my morning routine isn’t pretty, or relaxed and very rarely does it involve a core strengthening workout. I’m a working mother of three little boys and this video is the truth. Here’s what my morning routine really is!
I wish I slept in gorgeous silky pajamas… but most of the time I wear one of Dave’s old t-shirts and some aged pajama bottoms. After a quick shower (yes with a shower cap– don’t judge!) I do take my time with my skin care regimen. You can read about it here if you’re curious.
Once my hair and makeup is done I do my best to pick out an outfit that’s cute and doesn’t have any dried Cheerios stuck in random places. For work it’s usually an outfit pretty similar to the ones in this post. After I’m dressed I give out hugs and kisses to all my boys. Then I usually grab another cup of coffee or a green juice and finish up my morning routine by heading out the door to work.
