Take 40

7 Quick Takes Friday
--- 1 ---
This week was my turn to host our Non-Book club! :) In the true spirit of things, I'm only 20 pages into the book I brought this week, but was so happy to have everyone into our home and enjoyed making a few things for the gathering...

 It's been on my mind to perfect the eggless shortbread cookie, since Lucas can't have anything with eggs in it... These were a winner. Promise.

Like all of my other winters in South Bend, I find exercising most difficult when it's chilly and snowy. (And with -16 degrees with windchill, "chilly" is a very generous term.) 
I finally decided this week that a busy schedule was simply no excuse for sitting at work all day and then sitting at home all evening... Even if it was only 10 minutes of something. 
So, I did at least 10 minutes of something every day this week.

And I do feel better. And I will do more. ;)
G'ahead and hold me to it.

You know, video chat is the unspoken awesomeness of the internet. As an aunt, it transforms my ability to be present to my sisters' families... I mean, it ain't snuggling up on the sofa to watch a movie or anything, but it sure does rock.

Brian and I bought tickets to California
Easter week with Michael, Gina, Stella, sunshine, wine and relaxation...
I'm signing up for that program.

Thanks to my cousin Kelly for posting this fun Disney-ness

My office is 2 doors from the Junior/Senior boys' locker room. One of my favorite moments at school is when a girl attempts to enter said locker room. 
Let's just say all the boys start screaming. 
It's quite funny.

Remember the live 18 piece swing band that I've posted about two weeks in a row?
Well, it's no too late!! 
Tomorrow is the Swing Dance! And you can come!
Buy tickets here.

If you can't come, 
consider supporting the Action Division of the People of Praise with a donation!
Thank you!

Go see Jen for 7 more!
