Natural Wake-up Time

SATURDAY. I love thee.

As usual on Saturday’s, I woke up at about 8:15.

Saturday and Sunday are the only days I never set an alarm (unless I have something planned for the morning) and I have found that I think 8:15 is my “natural” wake-up time, or the time my body just automatically wakes up (duh).

Even though all throughout this work week I woke up before my alarm, I wouldnt say it just happened naturally, it was mostly due to Torrance already being awake and stomping around getting ready. It is no secret that I am not a morning person. Maybe some day, but  for now, I am okay with my body waking up at 8:15.

It may also have to do with the fact that when I got up to go to the bathroom and came back to lay down, a brown dog had taken my spot. It was a sign (or she was trying to get my attention because she wanted food).

I am enjoying breakfast #1 since I have a hunch he will be sleeping a little while longer and I cant drink coffee on an empty stomach! When he wakes up I will be enjoying some turkey sausage and eggs!


On the agenda this weekend? Who knows! But it will include (at least) these super exciting things.

  • laundry (wahhhh!!!)
  • house cleaning
  • grocery shopping (yay!)
  • kitchen table shopping (I hope. I need. I want)
  • a run
  • a brown dog walk
  • a date night. Maybe dinner and bowling? I have had a weird itch to go bowling? How strange.

Notice how kitchen table shopping has been on my to-do list for like, a month? It is a mix between the fact that I havent found one I love yet, and also I havent gone to that many stores to look.

I’ll be back later for more FUN.


  • What’s your natural wake-up time? Do you wake up with/at the same time as your significant other (if you live together)?
  • Any weekend plans? To-do’s?

  1. Love the dog picture – I have two English Springers that wake me up in the same manner! – and I get that coffee going too!

  2. Your dog is seriously cute. I want a dog so badly! I guess I will have to be satisfied with my kitties for now… (I do kind of love them).
    My natural wake-up time is around 7am, but on weekends I usually make myself go back to sleep because I’m not ready to start the day just yet. And I used to think I was a morning person, but my boyfriend thinks otherwise 😉 Sometimes I like to have a little grumpfest in the morning and get it out of the way.

    I am also off to do laundry, blechhhhh

  3. first off, your dog is sooo cute 🙂

    natural wake up time..hmm..ive always been an early riser, even if I am exhausted from the night before..I got it from my dad I think. I would say I cant really sleep later then 8 or 9 am…sometimes I wake up really early and then fall back asleep but thats the extent of my sleeping in 😉 Kevin on the other hand can sleep FOREVER! On the weekends he will be a trooper and usually get up early with me though!

    I hope you finally get your kitchen table! My day is going to be filled with alot of baking! 🙂

    Good luck with your table shopping! I love the one we have now, but have kinda fallen in love with one from West Elm that I’m picturing for the future. Where have you looked so far?

    • We have looked at a few local places. I decided I don’t want to spend a lot on a table until we get a house where we will have lots of room to get what we want but I want a taller heavy 4 place pub table. I think I found one we are going to get tomorrow!
