The Daily Dime : June 2019

Time for another Daily Dime post where I share 10 pictures from a day in my life! I haven’t done one of these since March 2018(!), so Charlotte looks just a little different than she did then!

These pictures are from Saturday, June 15.

One//Around 10:00 AM

Charlotte has an ABC mat on the floor of our screen room, so we go out there at least once a week so she can play with them. She’s started putting some of the empty parts on her head, which always makes me laugh!

Two//Around 10:00 AM

Poor Koopa always thinks that he gets to go in the back yard every time we go in the screen room, but until he gets his new flea/tick collar, he can’t. The ticks are so bad this year!

Three//Around 11:00 AM

Time for a late breakfast with Ariel and her inside ABCs. She is obsessed with ABCs and spelling right now!!

Four//Around 1:45 PM

My mom, Charlotte, and I have been taking daily walks around the neighborhood. We usually do it after I get home from work, so it’s not too hot, but today we had to go earlier, so it was blazing outside! Please note Charlotte’s snacks in the cup holder!

Five//Around 2:30 PM

After our walk, Charlotte and I played in the back yard for a few minutes. Unfortunately, our play time ended when Charlotte got super mad at me for not letting her go near the neighbor’s fence because I didn’t want her to get too close to their dogs. I’m such a mean mom!

Six//Around 6:00 PM

My brother bought two tickets to the My Brother, My Brother, and Me podcast’s live show, and he invited me to come along. This is the face I make when I get to go out and do something adultish!

Seven//Around 7:00 PM

My brother made fun of me and called me a tourist because I kept taking pictures downtown, but I don’t care! I just like taking pictures in Nashville, and I thought this one was a cool one!

Eight//Around 7:00 PM

Me and Little Jimmy Dickens. Enough said…

Nine//Around 9:00 PM

It’s the brothers McElroy! Let’s get this show started!

Ten//Around 10:15 PM

Okay, this is a mean picture, but it highly entertained me. These scooters are all over Nashville, but this is the first time I’ve seen two people trying to ride the same one! Right before I took this, the girl was standing there yelling at the boy. I imagine it was about their technique because when they got back on, they were booking it up the hill! Don’t ever change, Nashville.

So this doesn’t seem to be a linkup anymore, but I want to start doing these again more regularly because I think they’re a cool way to get a glimpse into people’s lives! My next one will be on July 17, so if you’re interested in joining in, leave me a comment, and maybe we can start a new linkup (maybe with a new name too because I don’t know if Daily Dime belongs to someone…).

The Daily Dime : March 2018

Time for a Daily Dime post where I share 10 pictures from one day in my life. These pictures were taken last Saturday on St. Patrick’s Day.

One//Around 8:45 AM
IMG_20180317_084920Charlotte has been cramming her mouth full of food lately. I don’t know why she does it, but you can see her chipmunk cheeks here! You can also see a little bit of Koopa in the background.

Two//Around 9:30 AMIMG_20180317_092716Koopa had a long overdue grooming appointment (he was so smelly!), and it was a pretty day, so we decided to go a few places after we dropped him off. This was our first stop – Charbucks as we call it. I also found a quarter on the floor under my chair. #LuckoftheIrish

Three//Around 10:30 AMIMG_20180317_102713Our next stop was Charget (yes, we really do call the coffee place Charbucks and the store Charget…we have issues lol). I love this picture because it shows what a big girl she’s becoming! Plus, it was so sweet seeing them holding hands!

Four//Around 10:30 AMIMG_20180317_103346While Will was waiting in the checkout line, Charlotte and I went over to the not just a dollar spot and browsed. She loved this hat, so of course we had to buy it!

Five//Around 11:00 AMIMG_20180317_110036She picked this out completely on her own. Girl’s got good taste! She also had to wear the hat for the rest of the morning. It was so cute!!

Six//Around 12:00 PMIMG_20180317_115052Around 4 AM Saturday morning, we had a pretty heavy storm with hail. The hail was still there the next day, even though it was close to 80 degrees outside! It fascinated me!

Seven//Around 4:45 PMIMG_20180317_164428Clean and soft Koopa! He was posing in his bandanna from the groomer!

Eight//Around 6:00 PMIMG_20180317_175608After naptime and an early dinner, we decided to go a few more places. Char climbed up on this bench on her own, and Will and I were both trying to take the perfect picture of her. Love this expression!

Nine//Around 8:30 PMIMG_20180317_202959Char got a couple of new pairs of pajamas. These were from the boy’s section, but they said “squadron goals” which made me laugh for a good two minutes, so we had to get those too. I think she was waving good night at the camera!

Ten//Around 10:00 PMIMG_20180317_220111Spending the day at the dog spa can wear a pup out! I had to crop this one for the sake of decency (ha!), but he also had his back paws crossed. Such a gentleman.

It was so nice to have a sunny, warm Saturday! We’ve had so much rain lately, and now it’s super cold here again. Come on Spring…we’re tired of Winter!

I’m not sure if this is a linkup still, but I enjoy these posts, so I’ll keep doing them!

The Daily Dime : January 2018

Oh my goodness, I haven’t done one of these since October! I didn’t realize I had missed two months of this one! I’ll make it up by including a lot of pictures of Charlotte in this entry!

These were taken last Thursday, January 11.

One//Around 8:00 AMIMG_20180111_083711This is what I see when I wake up! Unless I have to be at work or somewhere early, I don’t set an alarm clock. I rely on my Charlarm clock…

Two//Around 8:30 AMIMG_20180111_085810Over Christmas break, Will did some work in our bedroom closet. He basically tripled the hanging space! Now we can both keep our clothes in our room! Notice the difference between the shelves. The top left shelf is for his clothes. The bottom shelf is just my shirts, and the top right shelf is my pants/skirts/dresses. #clotheshorse

Three//Around 9:00 AMIMG_20180111_092333I tried to get a good picture of Koopa when I took him out before leaving for work, but this was the best he would give me!

Four//Around 9:00 AMIMG_20180111_092441Charlotte likes to stand at the door anytime one of us takes Koopa out. She looks like such a big girl!

Five//Around 12:30 PMIMG_20180111_133745I was off work a few days last week because of sickness (I think I’ve only written about that approximately 7.5 million times). This was my first day back at work after almost a week off, and I discovered a Christmas card in my mailbox! Oops!!

Six//Around 5:52 PM (ha)IMG_20180111_175243I took this picture in the parking lot at work to show the temperature since we were supposed to have snow on Friday. Spoiler alert – we did.

Seven//Around 7:00 PMIMG_20180111_083645Our letter board still had stuff on it about Christmas shopping, so I thought it was time to update it! In retrospect, I wish I had put Becky on the fourth line (raise your hand if you get that reference…)

Eight//Around 7:30 PMIMG_20180114_112903Charlotte…and her messy face…loves to take selfies!

Nine//Around 7:45 PMIMG_20180117_090203This one is a little blurry, but I laughed so hard at her carrying her makeup brush and her “bah” around. Girl has priorities! 😉 Also, her jammies look like different ones from the picture before. So odd!

Ten//Around 10:00 PMIMG_20180109_154324I know this one is kind of an unusual picture, but it made me laugh because he was laying on my lap, and there was just something that cracked me up about his little bottom teeth! And, he was snoring!!

I didn’t take any pictures of Will or me! You guys don’t miss us too much, do you? Ha!

Linking up with Kristin.
