When the kids are not in school and I don't have to wake them up in the morning or do school lunches, then about 15 mins from shower to out the door.
Otherwise it takes longer - such as this morning. I was up for 5:30, showered, dressed, wake up 14 yr old, wake up 11 & 10 yr olds, 10 yr old heads up to take his shower, school lunches for the 2 youngest (teens do this stuff themselves), turn on the light for the aquarium, feed the piggy fish, set out food & water for the kittens (teenager fishes them out from under the couch to wake them for breakfast), 1 kitty to litter for duties (teen gets 2nd kitty to litter for duties), pack up the work laptop, make sure I have everything, get outerwear on (brrrrrrrrrr winter) and head out.
Then there is the cleaning of the van & getting it semi-warm to drive, put gas in the van, get my coffee & get to work....
From 5:30 wakeup to 6:40 work arrival (actually sitting at my desk time this morning)
I shower at night before I go to bed, in the morning it takes me about 15 minutes to get ready. I am one of those that blowdries their hair every day (I have to, or I will look like a boy) and wears makeup every day.
Before I had kids I was always told that at some point I wouldn't have time to go through all that every morning, but it never happened.
It depends, if I'm in a hurry and I don't care what my hair looks like, about 20 mins. If I'm not in a hurry and I need to dry and straighten my hair, about an hour (or two depending on interruptions). I have THICK hair (and we have a love/hate relationship)!

Seriously about 5 minutes. The bathroom is still torn apart so I bathe at night until the shower is back together. I have seriously curly hair so I CANNOT brush it when dry so I just throw it in a pony tail, get dressed and brush my teeth.
