Seven Quick Takes


For the first time in quite a while, I’ve posted every day this week. Okay, minus the weekend, but those don’t count. Days off are days off!


My mom and I are going to the annual Bridal Fair in town this weekend. I’m excited for it! I’m hoping to be able to get some ideas for decorations, as well as scooping up coupons for cakes (the place I want to get mine from will be there!), spa treatments and flowers. Woo!


B will be in town on Monday and we’re going to go bridesmaid dress shopping. I’m really hoping her, C, and I will be able to find something that works for everyone’s figure and bank account. I just wish the weather wasn’t so ridiculous so that Mel could come too. (Be prepared for photo messages, woman!) Silly Vancouver drivers and their lack of winter tires ;)


There’s a gutter drain right outside my bedroom window and with all the warm weather we’ve been having, the snow has been melting like crazy. As a result of the meltiness, the drain makes this horrible dripping noise all. night. long. It’s like Chinese water torture to my ears. I can’t stand repetitive noises like that, and it makes it damn-near impossible for me to fall asleep. I’ve been taking doses of sleeping pills to help me sleep. Ah, groggy goodness.


My neighbours now have some sort of lapdog in their possession. (It looks like a Chihuahua crossed with a Papillon or something like that) As a result, all Daphne wants to do it go outside and stare at the fence. Awesome. I can’t wait for it to be summer so those kids go away. Their parents bought the place so the kids have a place to stay during university. Faaaantastic. (Note to self: Stop sounding like a crazy old lady)


We’re getting a new vehicle! Well, Kyle is. He’s been wanted to buy a new truck for the longest time and there’s a great deal on new Rangers right now, so he ordered one on Wednesday! It takes 8 to 12 weeks to arrive, so we’re doing the anticipation dance! I’m so glad he went for it; he works so hard all the time and deserves to spoil himself. The hilarious thing? The colour of the truck is the same as one of our wedding colours, lol. (Guess which vehicle we’ll be arriving in now?!)


I spent nearly $60 at Chapters bookstore yesterday! I bought Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, Water for Elephants, and Thin, Rich, Pretty. I can’t decide which one to start first! Suggestions?

Happy Friday everyone! Was this the longest week ever for you too?
What are your weekend plans?

  1. I say Water For Elephants. I haven’t read any of those books but I’ve heard amazing things about that one! Obviously I need to make room for it on my never ending To Read list!


  2. Water for Elephants, Water for Elephants, Water for Elephants!!! It is SO GOOD!

    This week was ridiculously long. I woke up Thursday, thinking it was Saturday. Majorly disappointed!


    • Stephany is right–Water For Elephants is incredibly good. I used to recommend it all the time when I worked at Chapters.

      Also, I will ensure my BB is charged and ready come Monday! I do work during the day, though, so there may be slight delays between 8:30 and 4:30.


      • I’ll have to read Water for Elephants next then! I started Hornet’s Nest last night since I JUST finished Red Hair. If I start two books at once I’ll get confused. What? Girl who Watered the Elephant’s Nest?

        I believe C and I will be starting around lunchtime, and then B will be joining us around 1 or 2 p.m. If only I could teleport you out of the office and into the Interior for the day.
