Getting back to work after the nice, long holiday break was tough. In fact, we’re still getting used to not sleeping in and wearing real clothes instead of sweatshirts and leggings. But plenty had an even tougher time getting back on schedule, like Katie Couric, journalist and anchor. Katie Couric reunited with co-anchor Matt Lauer on The TODAY Show, which called for a pretty big schedule change. She has been filling in for Savannah Guthrie, who is away on maternity leave. Katie had to get up early to make it to the show, which starts at 7 A.M. But of course, she approached the situation with her classic adorable sense of humor.

Katie Couric posted this adorable makeup free selfie as she struggled to adjust to the early mornings, and we can SO relate.

Katie’s hilarious post makes us totally LOL, because we have felt like that a lot of early mornings. And we love her adorable PJs.

Even though Katie was dreading the early mornings, she’s clearly having fun with her pals on the show.

According to, on her first day back, Katie lined the makeup room with pictures of herself. Matt Lauer responded, saying, “You know this would be hysterical if this weren’t exactly the way the makeup room looked when she worked here.” LOL!

This month marks Matt’s 20th year at TODAY, so we be he appreciated having an old friend around. Matt and Katie co-anchored the show together from 1997 through 2006, so they have quite a bit of history. At least if Katie has to get up crazy early to get to work, she has some awesome pals right there with her.
