A Completely Random Post of Awesomeness

Sorry for the spotty posting lately. Last week my parents were in town to help out with the new house; a highlight of all the work they did will be coming this week! Today, however, you are treated to one of the most random posts Nerdy April has ever conjured up.

Weekend in pictures:

I haven't mentioned much about the BF's Baja car project at school. Basically, it is a suped-up go-kart that can go over fairly large obstacles and traverse deep-ish waters. Also, it is sortof a black hole of the BF's time. So, here is a picture of the man with his Baja car frame!



While the BF was having fun Baja-ing on Saturday, the wiener dog and I did chores, laundry, etc. Although, I realized I was doing most of the work when I found her like this:



And finally, after a long Saturday night of Rock Band, Baja Boys and Beer, we decided to hit up Cracker Barrel for breakfast. And, well, we got bored while waiting = the BF tried on a singing, wiggling turkey hat:


Now if that ain't redneck sexy, then I don't know what is!

In other news, this coming Sunday is the local JDRF walk. Which means, yours truly will be walking her butt off for Juvenile Diabetes. If you feel so inclined to donate, please follow the link, which will take you to my donation page.
Also, in preparation for my big walk, I think it would be fun for readers to submit a little tidbit about how Diabetes has affected their lives whether through a family member, friend, or themselves ;-) I want to be extra motivated for my big walk and would love to publish some (or all) of your tidbits on my blog this week.

  1. Gosh! I need to do a walk. I think that'll be one of my New Year's resolutions. Maybe I'll join you next year. =)

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…
