The Enchiladas Are in the Oven

When I share examples of my daily or weekly schedule, I’m often asked, “How do you do it all?” I usually answer with a list of things I don’t do: raise children, drive, attend church, socialize, watch tv. (Well, I do the last two things – but very little.) My other “trick” is to fill all the little holes in my schedule with something productive.


Jacket, H&M (thrifted). Cardigan, NY & Co (thrifted). Skirt, Leslie Faye (thrifted). Belt, Buckle. Boots, Style & Co (thrifted). Bag, Fossil. Earrings, Ali’s Boutique.

For example, I took these photos while dinner (refried bean enchiladas) heated in the oven. I run at lunch and eat while I work. I practice my voice lesson while I clean the kitchen. I learn lines on the bus. I review blog comments as I wait in line. I dream up outfits while I swim. And I still wish I could do more. Maybe learn a language while I sleep?


...because I spend a lot of time sleeping. I'm an 8-to-10-hours-a-night kind of girl. I guess I wear myself out.

You are such a go-getter! I often get asked how I manage to read so much. (I usually read a book a week). That's an easy one: I replaced television watching with reading! I too am guilty of eating while I work. Yesterday I took my first real lunch in over a month (where I sat at a table that didn't have a computer)!

God, you just reminded me of how very lazy I am.

Absolutely gorgeous skirt. Love all the pattern mixing =D

I've always loved this skirt! It's especially vivid with the leopard top here. And it even has a bit of Latin flair to match your dinner.

It was interesting hearing about your schedule. I don't do a lot of the stuff you mentioned either, except watch TV and drive. I'm admittedly addicted to TV. But I hate driving. So I kind of envy you there :)

Ah! Multitasking, I'm trying to double up on things I do. I already cook while doing laundry, do homework while listening to music, read while watching television (I am nearly always reading a book at the same time as watching tv).

I want to also add, I'm surprised at the number of bloggers who don't drive. I don't and people find it so odd.

Love your leather jacket with the pattern mix. I think it gives an edgy look to the femme skirt.

Wow, I am impressed! You must feel so accomplished by the time you go to sleep each night!

Ah, the old multi tasker method! I do that as well; I love watching Braves baseball but can't afford to just sit so I'm usually stitching and listening to a book on tape while I "watch" the game. I used to be hooked on TV but have found that I get lots more done when it is off at night.
