A short note.

1) I am travelling to Dallas today for work. After the conversation I had with the security lady this morning I am just praying this trip is not a Charlie Foxtrot (and if you don't know what that means, ask some Army guys).


{Although its doubtful I will see these gals, the word "Dallas" always reminds me of Mrs. Bernick's answering machine. You see she is a diehard Cowboys fan, this is basically what her answering machine said...verbatim...and all in a completely flat voice...

"Hi, you have reached the Bernicks. Go Cowboys. We can't answer the phone right now, please leave a message and we'll get back to you."

Seriously, I am guilty of calling their house more than once just to hear the recording, good times.}


2) I am really going to miss Gordo Cooper, not the astronaut, the cat. This morning I put out two large "bowls of doom" filled with cat food and water. Plus, I sorta left the cat food in a place I knew he could get to if he got desparate. But I just know he is going to be super lonely. Boo.



3) I am in love with my new (used, but new to me) iPod touch! Woot! 'nuff said.
4) Oh, and here is the one gripe of the day: Spring Break really sucks when you don't have it. But it sucks even more when your boyfriend goes on a cruise with his mom and hence can't even communicate with you. And you don't know when he gets back, and you leave next Monday for 10 days in Lexington. Awesome.
This gripe fest is over. Hope you all have a great day!

MCM - Certified Mom

This morning I woke up early, the baby monitor was chirping just a few minutes before my alarm was set to go off. Chris graciously rolled out of bed and set out to re-insert Otto's paci. Meanwhile, I pressed my clothes, curled my hair and brewed some coffee - my standard pre-console routine. After a quick breakfast Zara peeped her head over the railing and I heard a gentle "mama" echo down the stairs. It was still dark, but this little one was ready for her daily breakfast of oatmeal and milk in preparation for a fun day at swim lessons and school. As she sat, eating her "oatsss" (as she calls them), I whirled around the kitchen prepping bottles, gathering outfits for school, and ensuring all the swim lesson supplies were set out. It's hard leaving Chris to take care of both kids in the morning (#momguilt) so I try my best to complete as many get-ahead tasks as possible, in hopes his morning goes smoothly. 
This morning schedule description may seem mundan…

MCM - On Call

It's definitely Monday. Otto spit up on my work clothes this morning, I forgot to brush my teeth and I sat down in my car forgetting to clean the layer of sand from the beach yesterday. Whoops. But, it's also MONDAY!!!!! Which means you get a special look behind the proverbial curtain of Mission Control in a series I'm dubbing "Mission Control Monday". We all need a little "boost" (pun intended) at the beginning of the week, so why not get it from the heart of Manned Spaceflight itself - NASA's Mission Control
This week I am highlighting the little known fact that sometimes, as an ADCO Specialist, I am scheduled to be "On Call". It just so happens I am "on-call" this week! Even though we don't have a sweet 1990's pager, the ADCO on-call is a Specialist with the cumbersome responsibility of having their cell phone strapped to them at all times. Yes, even during the night. Yes, even when you have a 3 month old. Yes, just…

'Subtle Nerdy' Home Decor

In our house you won't hear "Alexa...play country radio..." for two reasons. (1) We are not that into country music and (2) our "Alexa" is named "Computer" just like the interactive onboard computer on the Starship Enterprise. That's how I like my home decor too - it's a style I've nicknamed "subtle nerdy".  #subtlenerdy

Apparently 'subtle nerdy' doesn't have quite the following that 'farmhouse chic' does...yet! So, that means I have to get creative and DIY many of my nerdy touches. And, while you may not be super onboard with the 'subtle nerdy' trend sweeping the home decor world this hole-in-the-wall-internet-spot, I bet you have your own ideas just waiting to be manifested on a blank wall! So, let's jump in, starting in our master bedroom!

The showpiece of this room is that gorgeous four poster bed and amazingly detailed hand-made quilt. Confession number one: I did not DIY the bed (it was an ex…
