My rushed morning routine

One thing that I’m not proficient at is giving myself enough time in the morning. Especially Mondays. I tend to let my alarm slip by, finally realizing that I need to get moving way too close to the time that we need to be out the door. It’s something that I’m aiming to change, but for those days when I just don’t get up early enough, here is what I squeeze in for those 20-30 minutes before becoming a cartoon cloud version of myself as we race to school!

Really, who needs an alarm when you have hungry cats? One or both of my furry friends greets me by stepping on my head, purring loudly in my face, or putting a paw on my mouth. There’s lots of cats-on-head action going on before I face reality and roll out of bed.


Usually my husband gives the kids breakfast (*usually*) and I make Cub’s school lunch. Mondays are almost always pb&j, today he got some strawberries, cucumbers, dried persimmons, and graham crackers. He’s a vegetarian so it can get creative making his lunches but I don’t mind, as long as I don’t forget until the last possible second. Which I never do…never…

One of my pet peeves is having an unclean face. I have super oily skin so I really need to cleanse first thing in the morning or I’m a slick mess. On a rushed morning, I either use a cleansing wipe or a small amount of Enfuselle Purifying Gel Cleanser and then dab on my Enfuselle Eye Treatment and Time Repair A.M. Since I don’t have to be anywhere right after dropping off Cub I’ll skip makeup for now.

Now onto my breakfast. Thank goodness for SMOOTHIES! I make a quick Strawberry vanilla smoothie while the car is warming up. I use 2 scoops Shaklee Life Shake in vanilla, a giant handful of frozen strawberries, and almond milk (I add enough to make it smooth) and that’s it!

I love travel tumblers, and this one has an opening wide enough for a metal straw so that I can drink my smoothie on the go! Time to drop off the Cub and take a quick smoothie selfie
I hope you liked seeing what my quick Monday morning looks like!

Take care of yourselves, ~Suzi
