I Slept Thru My Alarm Survivor’s Guide

No matter who you are or where you are going, we are all guilty of sleeping thru our alarm.  This morning it happened to me.  When I woke up I had 15 minutes to get both my kids out of bed, get all 3 of us ready and out the door.  I couldn’t roll into the school drop off in my pj’s, I had a multitude of errands to run this morning.  I had to look half way presentable.  Only 15 minutes?  No problem!!  Here is what I do to make a crazy mad rush out the door morning more smooth.

First, I tell Sofia that we are playing a game, yeah!  Who can get ready and be standing by the door first?  That person wins!  GO!!!  I lay out an outfit she can put on herself.  I make sure she goes potty and brushes her teeth.  Easy Peasy!

Next is me, oih!  Everyone needs that 1 go to outfit that you can put on quickly, you know it will look good and you will feel good wearing it.  For me, it’s a pair of thick leggings, a long sweater, tall boots and a soft, cozy scarf.  I call it effortless fashion, or a hot mess- you choose.  I have a 5 minute make up bag that gets taken here or there or where ever I need it.  Today, it went in the car and my make up was done on the go.  Luckily my hair didn’t move much while I was sleeping, or else it would be up in a messy bun.

I grab Caleb out of his crib, diaper change and clean pants.  I throw a hoodie over his pj shirt and he is good to go!

Just because you are running late doesn’t mean you have to skip breakfast.  Make sure you have options for yourself.  Have hard-boiled eggs in the fridge and grab a banana.  Or, my personal go to is a Kind protein bar.  It’s high in protein, low in sugar and has 200 calories.  That’s a meal replacement for me.  Skip the drive thru with that oh so yummy pumpkin muffin with cream cheese frosting and spice latte with whipped cream, and oh! can I have a saddle bag with that please?  Don’t blow your entire days calories!

Whether you are late for work, school drop off, an appointment, etc; you don’t have to panic.  Get dressed, a little make up and something to eat and you are good to go and looking fabulous!

And yes, my kids ate cereal bars and squeezy yogurt in the car :)

Any Free People sweater like this one is perfect with leggings!  Just make sure it completely covers your butt.
leggings
The Zella “live in leggings” are amazing!!  They are as thick as a ponte knit pant, you will never be able to see thru them.  And bonus!  They are as comfortable as work out pants!

  1. Congrats on your blog! Blogging is such a fun way to get your creativity out! Good luck. I have been blogging for about two years so if you need any help or have questions just let me know! I know your sister just started too ( I watch her) As a mother of two, blogging fits my schedule very well!

  2. Haha! Love it – “Can I have a saddle bag with that?”. That is why I have porridge every morning :-( that stuff should be made illegal, it’s **that** nasty!!

  3. Hahahah. I love this because this IS me every morning. I always embrace that hot mess look and call it effortless. Except today I realized after I dropped my son off that I had put on both my leggings AND baggy black t-shirt on inside out.

  4. I loved this! I appreciate that you suggest the sweater covers your butt. I’m liking where this blog is going! Can’t wait to read more.
