Yesterday morning, in between gently urging my kids to just put your shoes on OMG PLEASE RIGHT NOW, and shoving my own feet in to rain boots, I was scrolling through Instagram and came across the #LifeCaptcha challenge and decided at that moment to jump in.
In their own words:
We invite you to join us.
Follow #lifecaptcha on Instagram.
On the 19th day of the month,
Every hour at 44 minutes past the hour,
drop everything and take a picture.

After some quick texting, Wendy and I decided to split the day with her taking the even hours, while I would post on the odds. Let’s take a quick stroll through our day.
Southern California Weather Wimp reporting for duty.
Wendy wins breakfast!
I spent some time last week making this desk space a little more my own, and now I really look forward to getting to work every day! (Also, that candle was featured in yesterday’s favorites post!)
Who even knew there was a crystal shop in Wendy’s ‘hood? Not I.
Wendy is having a significantly more exciting day than I am. Taking a Vitamin D break with this little guy before Rainpocalypse. #lifecaptcha
This little dude is my constant companion during the day. He doesn’t really want you to acknowledge him, he just wants to be riiiiight next to you.
12:44pm: Finally home and watching a live Pinterest webinar to take our biz to the next level. Megan’s desk is far cuter and more organized than mine. #pinpower #lifecaptcha
We were both pouring over Pinterest courses yesterday. We are FIRED up about 2017 and making big changes around here.
1:44 pm. Killing time between volunteering and pickup with a book and a snack. Really wish that apple was a cookie. #lifecaptcha
I have the world’s most inconvenient volunteer time. It ends 30 minutes before school gets out, and usually I just kill time on my phone. Today I came prepared!
While I was rounding up kids from school, Wendy was working away.
3:44 pm. Homework. #projectsalldayeveryday #lifecaptcha
School projects are slowly killing me.
4:44pm: Afternoon fire with Chip and Jo. Debating what we’re doing for dinner. Maybe ? #lifecaptcha
Wendy was living her best life this afternoon. I am super jealous of her fire. We have a fireplace that we can’t use for stupid reasons. JEALOUS.
5:44. Dinner? Done. #keepingitreal #lifecaptcha
I phoned in dinner, big time. My husband wasn’t home for dinner so I went for the easiest dinner that no one will argue about.
6:44pm: waiting for pizza and still watching HGTV. Super lazy Thursday night and really wish I had a glass of Chardonnay. My head is actually blocking a laundry basket, too. #keepingitreal #lifecaptcha
DYING over Wendy’s caption. Nothing to see here, folks!
I was doing bedtime at 7:44, so now I’m calling it a night. Considering a full social media fast for tomorrow as the weight of the day is bearing down on me. Be kind to yourselves. ❤️-M #lifecaptcha
We’ll be playing along again next month on the 19th and you should join in, too!
