My Typical Tuesday

Well hellooo ladies and gentlemen! But mostly ladies... :) Isn't Rachel the best?!

I'm Mallory! I've got a really cute little 8 month old named Elizabeth Grace. We're two peas in a pod, her and I. Like....UNICORNS AND GLITTER!!! No? Alright. Let's cut to the chase, shall we?

alarm

4:45AM: I am awakened by the sweet serenade of "Marimba" and the mad dash begins! One hour until I have to be at work.

4:50AM: Since I work, I have to pump for Elizabeth. It will be the first of six times today.
Hey, we're all friends here, right?


Meanwhile, I whip up a quick breakfast...

Good night morning, moon!

temple
5:29AM: I pass by the Jordan River Temple every day. It's always lit this time of the morning. I'm lucky to live so close.

makeup
5:33AM: Makeup in the car. I've become a pro at this.
Don't worry, I was stopped at a red light while taking this picture.

5:38AM: Hit the freeway. Sing backup for John Mayer.
(I sometimes like to think I'm pro at this.


5:52AM: Pull into work a few minutes late.


6:00A-Noon: Work. Specifically, collections.
(Enter scary "Psycho" murder scene music.)


For obvious reasons, Discover won't let us take any pictures inside. So I made a little picture for you....

It would NOT be a "typical" Tuesday if I didn't hear about turnips a few times.
