I said it, and I'm a she

Who doesn't like a good "that's what she said" joke? Man, sometimes it is all I can do to not bust out laughing to a crude, poorly worded sentence that is not complete until a "that's what she said" is added. Stop judging me...I work around literally a building full of dudes, it happens.

So how could we pass up the opportunity to include my favorite type of joke in our engagement pictures?!

Oh that's right, we couldn't pass it up.

And it's true...that IS what I said, sort of. After the ocean of overwhelming shock rolled out.

See, the thing is, Chris didn't woo me with a fancy dinner, a hot-air balloon ride, or a sky diving adventure. He didn't write "will you marry me?" in the sky or on the beach or even spelled out with strawberries. It was so much simpler than all that, and consequently, much more of a surprise. It was perfectly "us". We aren't exactly fancy people, heck our first date was in the wee hours of the morning at a waffle house. Really, it was just a simple question with a simple (after the shock) answer. 

So how did I get to our engagement story from a "that's what she said" joke introduction? Well, I don't really know, it's just my brain on crack wedding planning these days. 

Anyone have some great TWSS one-liners? Think long and hard about it. Crap.

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…

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.

'Subtle Nerdy' Home Decor

In our house you won't hear " 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…
