Flylady Friday - Morning Routines!

Welcome to our first weekly Flylady Friday party! I'm so glad that you're here! If you're just joining us, read more about Flylady Fridays here.

This week we're sharing our Morning Routines! Although I've previously de-cluttered my house with the Flylady program before, I've since had two babies in less than two years and relocated to a new city last September when I was about 6 months pregnant. I still have a LOT of boxes hidden in our closets and garage that need to be unpacked! Needless to say, I've got my work cut out for me. Ugh!!

Instead of stressing myself out by jumping into the Flylady program where I was at our old house, I'm starting from scratch! Since I also have a one month old and a toddler, I'm keeping it easy and will go from there as I'm able to do so. Here's what I've been doing so far this week:

Morning Routine:

  • Shower and get dressed
  • Make my bed
  • Get a load of laundry started
  • Empty dishwasher
  • Coffee!!!!!!
  • Clean up kitchen from breakfast
  • Figure out what's for dinner and take something out of the freezer if needed.
  • Get kids dressed
  • Coffee!!!!!
  • Put laundry in the dryer
Doesn't sound too horrible, right? Throw a couple of kids in the mix and I'm exhausted! To be honest, some days I don't take a shower and get dressed until 3 or 4pm! Baby steps y'all! LOL :) I really wanted to show you a before and after picture of what a difference 15 minutes can make in my kitchen but I didn't get a chance this week. So, I'll show you next week!

Don't forget to link up below and share what's going on in your home! Have a happy Friday everyone!
Next Week: Share your Afternoon/Evening routines and show us a picture of one of your 15 minute projects!
