7 Quick Takes: Fun Fun Fun!

Yay for Jen finally being able to host again this week!

1. I know I am always talking about the weather and I really have no right to complain considering our imminent move to the tropics, but it really really affects me and this whole waiting around for spring thing is getting annoying! I guess I should be happy there hasn't been snow in awhile, but the temperatures are just not very warm so far! I'm hearing it should be warmish on the weekend so you better bet we will take advantage and spend the entirety of it outside! It's going to be FUN!


I love the different places I find Maria reading to Felicity. So fun.


Giving big sister a hug

Loving this little guy as usual! He is at such a sweet stage where he is a great sleeper, loves playing with trucks, cars, blocks, balls, or anything that can be used as a phone. He loves making people laugh. Whenever he sees a pillow on the ground he dives onto it and gets all cosy. All day long he gives hugs and kisses. When Daddy comes in the door he crawls over saying "dadadada!!!" and then cuddles with him for like 10 minutes. Could he be any more fun?!


The girls are obsessed with playing Old Maid and Memory. We play them at least 5 times a day. Fun times! 

This is what my house looks like now getting ready to move to another country. Piles of stuff to give away/sell/store, and piles to keep. You better believe I am having fun.

6. We are having so much fun with our new Vitamix! I'll admit it was a huge splurge for us, but we justified that it was a good buy for us since it will replace a couple of our appliances (so saving space) and it will last us 25 years. The smoothies are amazing and apparently we are getting more of the nutrients because it grinds up all the seeds and breaks down cell walls or something like that? I have already used it today to make cranberry orange bread, delicious smoothies packed with fruits and vegetables, and I will be making a soup in it for supper. It was definitely a must buy for us. haha. I have spent years trying to convince Shane to buy me one and now he is more gung ho about it than I am. 

7. Grace recommended this workout dvd and as she is my role model in all things exercise, (she has three kids under three and has looked amazing throughout and after all three pregnancies. No small feat!) I knew she wouldn't disappoint. I got it, and I love it! I love that I can do it standing up so the baby isn't tempted to crawl all over me, and also for those days where I don't feel like jumping around and getting all sweaty, but still want a good muscle workout. Of course I have fun while doing it. I know, I'm funny! 

Have a great weekend!


  1. Aw, Bek, I wish I could help you with all the moving stuff! Still can't believe you are going so faaaar away!
    I'm jealous you got the Vitamix! and jealous you are able to workout, haha... I apparently have "diastisis recti" and on top of that, a very sore back. I feel like I'll never be able to move normally again. Oh, to be young and in your twenties! haha.

    1. Haha yes you are quite the old duck. I think I have that too! Working on trying to fix it...

  2. oh. I want sweet Felicity's blazer! They seem so sweet -- I kind of have kid envy and mine are even asleep!! I know I live a lot further south but this weather has been killing me too. I think Simon has had it with my break downs :)

    And I'm so glad you like the DVD --- but you really are my inspiration -- looking insane. truly!!
