Quick Takes #208

    1. The Birthdays were fun and tasty; carrot cake cupcakes for his and cheesecake for mine. Two actually due to a communication miss!!
    2. The Penn Newman Center released a video which brought back so many memories and made me so proud to have been a part of this wonderful place both as a student and now an alumni.
    3. The sun decided to shine and we seize the moment with walks and bike rides; allowing me to try out the bike trailer I received for my birthday!
    4. Really appreciated this post from Anne the Modern Mrs Darcy. As I switch out clothes for the change of seasons I'm trying to purge and learning more about what works for me is always helpful.
    5. Having heard that this was Grey's last season (not true by the way) after not watching for awhile have started up again and overall liked the finale ~ aside from my usual rant that it seems like TV shows can never just let a woman give birth!!
    6. Crowd sourcing: I'm not a good water drinker and aside from just getting over it and drinking the water ~ what are your best tips for getting in your water consumption?
    7. Have a wonderful weekend!!

    Please head over to Kelly's for more 7QT's


  1. I try and drink 16oz of water with lemon in the morning and I feel like that helps "kick start" my drinking for the day. I'm also going to try different combos of cut up fruit in a pitcher of water this summer to get my girls to drink more but we'll see how that goes!
    Happy belated birthday, Joy!

  2. I just commented on another blog that I am going to try to start drinking more water!
    Not a fan...
    But I really need to give it a shot.
    My daughter drinks warm water with lemon every morning.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. I'm sitting here slightly dehydrated, so I'm not the best one to ask about the water.
    You know me, always a fan of finding ways to purge things that don't quite work!
