hey, i’m bex! 

A work-from-home twin mama embracing the messiness of life.

As women and moms we do so many things. It’s impossible to fit our lives into a singular box. Here at heyitsbex, we don’t even try to.

We show up as we are, filled with love and gratitude, and embrace the messiness of life, creating magic in everyday moments.

Following the high of my amazing bucket list birthday party for my 32 x 33 list, I was eager to get my list started for this next year. 

Writing my list this year was such an interesting experience. It felt so nice to try and remember what I would have put on these lists before I was a mom. Don’t get me wrong, I love my newfound identity as a mom, but the old Bex seems to have fallen by the wayside. This list felt like rediscovering who I am again!

One of the easiest ways to populate my list I’ve found is to break it into categories while I’m drafting my items. This year’s categories include: 

  • Business
  • Family
  • Financial
  • Fun
  • House
  • Personal Growth
  • Physical/Mental Wellbeing
  • Relational
  • Travel/Adventure
  • Twins

With my newfound hack to make sure I get my blogging in, I’m hoping to document our progress all year and continue our streak of completing our list! If you’re interested, take a look at all of my previous bucket lists. This is our ninth year making a list! That’s wild!

So let’s get right into it – here’s 33 things I hope to accomplish before I turn 34!

  1. Plan and host the twins’ 1st birthday
  2. Journal through hard emotions
  3. Work through the new version of PTYA 
  4. Cancel unnecessary subscriptions
  5. Complete our first year of Chatbooks
  6. Create Client Portal
  7. Get monetized
  8. Have a date night once a month (no kids!)
  9. Heal my diastasis recti
  10. Incorporate exercise into our daily routine to model a healthy lifestyle for the twins
  11. Launch Bates & Boo website
  12. Launch TD project
  13. Make a plan for kids’ RESPs
  14. Post 100 blog posts (~2 a week)
  15. Spend intentional time with my mom and sister at least once every two weeks
  16. Cheer Bugs on at his football game
  17. Publish 12 YouTube videos
  18. Design main floor renovation
  19. Explore 3 new activities around Edmonton with the babies
  20. Play a new board game
  21. Publish Bexlyn website
  22. Review personal expenses monthly
  23. Start running again with sister
  24. Take the twins to the mountains
  25. Try a new craft
  26. Try something new with my partner
  27. Read 12 books
  28. Clean out the closet in the office
  29. Sort through clothes and get rid of things I don’t wear
  30. Try three new foods
  31. Write 12 love letters
  32. Make a cleaning schedule
  33. Plant some flowers

This past year was the first year in many that I did not make a birthday bucket list at all. Last year we had my baby shower two days before my birthday, and so my birthday came and went without a blink of an eye pretty much. I wouldn’t have had it any other way. […]

Having two babies is daunting and the number of things you need can get out of hand quickly – especially if you’re buying two of everything! When I was looking for what we needed, I wished I had a list like this of baby must-haves for the new twin mom. Now that we’re 9 months […]

I’m so excited to share we have launched our first digital planning product – and trust me when I say this planner can help you get shit done! Typical planners are all the same – very boring, monotone, and minimalistic. If I’m going to look at something multiple times throughout the day, I want it […]
