Annnd we’re back with another Day in the Life post! This week’s post is from the lovely Katie Crocombe from Flourish & Co! Katie is a professional life coach and we “met” via Jess Freeman’s Facebook group! I’ve been wanting to feature more moms in the series as I know their days can look totally different than those of us who aren’t moms yet so I was happy when Katie reached out to be featured!

Day In The Life Series: Katie Crocombe from Flourish & Co

I am so thrilled to be part of this series! As you read through this Tuesday that I document, please note that my days constantly look different. Between the girls being with their dad 50% of the time and then with Matt (my husband/their step-dad) and I 50% of the time, various speaking engagements and client commitments, and the fact that I love having flexibility and freedom as entrepreneur, it’s nearly impossible to have the same day twice 🙂

I kept track of my day on a Tuesday and generally speaking this is what a Tuesday looks like for me.

5:30 am

Alarm goes off. Like every normal person, I hit snooze 2-3 times 😉

5:50 am

Then I jump up and head straight to the coffee. One of the best purchases Matt and I made, right when we got married (about 1.5 years ago), was a programmable coffee maker… we both had Keurigs when we met but decided we wanted coffee brewed upon waking up and I just love that!

6 am

Along with my coffee, fuzzy blanket, slippers and neck pillow (which I warm in the microwave for about 2 min- I’m a total grandma!), I snuggle up on the couch with my journal, Bible and sometimes an additional book. I read, journal and pray for 20-30 min.

6:30 am

I typically look at my schedule for the day, might send a few emails and then finish packing the girls’ lunches and tuck them in their backpacks.

6:50-7 am

Take Matt coffee and sometimes change into workout clothes (I try to go to the YMCA near us 2-3 times a week to workout after dropping girls at school). This particular day I totally rocked my pajamas and slippers in the carpool line- no time for working out 🙂

7 am

Wake up girls, help them get dressed and ready for school

7:15 am

Make them each half a bagel, make sure their shoes are on

7:20-7:40 am

Head to school and drop them off in carpool line

8-8:30 am

Back home to reply to various emails, texts, put together some social media content

8:30-9:15 am

Got ready and poured a fresh cup of coffee and ate small granola bar. Getting ready most mornings, as much as I’d like to do my hair completely, looks more like a shower w/out washing my hair, some dry shampoo and a pony tail!

9:15-11:30 am

Moms’ Bible Study

11:50a- 12:45 pm

Back home, cleaned around the house a little bit with starting a load of laundry, vacuuming a bit and fixed myself a banana w/ some peanut butter while I prepped for a client call.

A few notes on computer and then a client coaching call- so amazing to work with such dedicated clients who are doing the hard work to make shifts that lead to new patterns and allow them to live more purposefully and joyfully!

1:50-2:00 pm

I switched laundry and started fresh load and quick snack time- remember I have 2 young ladies 😉

2-4:00 pm

Sent various emails, replied to numerous emails. I’m on the heels of a few different speaking engagements where I wanted to follow up with some women that I connected with who were interested in having coaching support. I also worked on contacting a few women for Flourish Flock Features {you can see more about those on the blog} and attempted to unpack and clean up some of my office mess- yikes!

4-4:40 pm

I get on a call with Lauren of Grit and Glitter Podcast, sharing some of my story, hearing some of hers and then talking through our schedules in terms of me sharing on her podcast.

4:40-5:20 pm

Drive to pick up girls from aftercare and then come back home – we love taking in the spring flowers in the front yard.

5:30 pm

The tornado of homework, dinner, showers, lunches, etc ensues 🙂 Honestly, I really try and work towards this being a very grace-filled, sweet time… it’s also often a great time to remember that while the days are long the years are short… And, I truly am so very blessed to be their mama!

6-6:45 pm

We finish up homework sheets, I get them going in their showers and start fixing dinner- tonight it was spaghetti and caesar salad. I also typically pour a glass of wine at this point, get coffee ready for the next morning and prepare their lunches so that in the morning it’s more of a grab the cold stuff, grab the ice packs and we’re done…

6:45-7:15 pm

Matt arrives home about 6:45p from work and changes and then we sit down for dinner for about 25 minutes. This is one of our family’s most favorite parts of the day… we really try to engage with one another and most nights we have some good laughs- even just about silly things… I think this night it ended up with the girls mentioning that at some point they want to learn how to ski and I said me too and that I really think it’d be fun to ski in a bikini (being totally ridiculous- obviously!)… at which point they of course started laughing and then the thought of boys skiing in speedos made them really get laughing (especially when sweet Ava, our youngest daughter called them “peedos” 🙂 but that’s what we want for our girls- lots of fun, sweet memories with us- so that they never doubt that they are loved and so that they feel so secure.

7:15-7:45 pm

Clean up dishes, Matt helped Bella with her spelling words a bit and Ava played a computer game for a bit

7:45-8:30 pm

We typically move to the family room and the girls have a towel they spread out on the nice rug and eat their dessert (picnic style) while we watch a show- they’ve been enjoying The Voice lately…

8:30 pm

We head up to bed and read the Children’s Storybook Bible for a bit and then lights out. Both girls LOVE for me to rub their backs and “sing” (I really don’t sing well, hence the quotations 🙂 so I just move from one bed to the other to do this for both of them (they share a room as that allows them to have a larger playroom)

9-10 pm

I do some miscellaneous tasks like fold and put away laundry, check work emails, check Instagram (that’s my favorite) while Matt works for a bit… he doesn’t always work this late but he’s in a busy season at work that requires extra hours.

10-11 pm

We normally get in bed with a small bowl of ice cream (we are big Ben and Jerry’s fans- Phish Food, Cherry Garcia, YUM!) and watch a show… because neither of us had finished Downton Abbey, nor watched it together (we’ve only been married about a year and a half), we’ve been watching that- almost done, we also have loved Parenthood, Friday Night Lights, of course This Is Us, Breaking Bad and many, many more!
