It's Friday... Furreal

It's Friday...yup...


Last night I had great intentions of doing my homework before the weekend so that the BF and I would have plenty of time to work on our weekend project. But instead, the Baja boys came over for a looonnngggg meeting, which meant they were using my computer, which meant instead of being scholarly productive, I was house-wife-esque productive. I cleaned the crap out of our bedroom and bathroom...it sucked, I hated it, I experienced a low blood sugar, and now it is amazingly clean. So yay!

To bring up my low blood sugar I decided to treat myself to something I've been avoiding lately...coffee with my fav creamer "Mint Chocolate Truffle." This was not a very smart idea since it took me until well after midnight to fall asleep....mmmm...but mint chocolate truffle is so worth it!!


Anyway, I also decided to finish up work on a little painting I've been working on....

FYI: The ground is supposed to be slanty because it is on its way up the hill to the pad...
And just for fun because I like messing with picture settings...


And in related shuttle news, I am absolutely relieved that they pushed the launch back until the end of February (I was having flashbacks of NASA's hell week when they picked Feb. 3...more on this later), but I am a little sad Mr. Kopra will not be flying...he is my homeboy you know ;-)

  1. Mint chocolate truffle is Trey's favorite creamer, too. We currently have 5 unopened bottles in our fridge because it's a limited edition. "They're good until May," he says. So if you ever run out or would like some extra, give me a call. ;-)

  2. Dude...Chris thought I was crazy when I bought 3 bottles. I told him about the "limited edition" stuff and he just gave me the "you're freaking crazy April" look...haha, glad to know someone else shares my obsession ;-)

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…
