That's Mrs. Nerdy April!

Whew! I’m back people! And I have a lot to share with you on being married, Diabetes on the wedding day, honeymooning (hey haven’t had one of those since I was diagnosed back in 1998, sorry Diabetes inside joke;-), rockets, romance, and Steak-n-Shake. But we will get to all that in time. Today, I would just like to share some of my favorite pictures of the event.
For those who don’t know me in real life, I will give you a little background. Chris (now the “H”) and I met in the summer of 2007 while we were both counselors at Space Camp. As such, it probably comes as no surprise that we choose the US Space and Rocket Center for our reception. Yes people, we danced on the moon beneath man’s greatest rocket, the Saturn V. It was amazing, and if you knew us, it was nothing short of the perfect place to celebrate our marriage!
We decided to just make our wedding our own…no fancy invitations, no served meal, no grand exit. The “theme” was based on a simple graphic I made:

And we used nerdy quotes like “I will love you to the moon and back” to round out the feel. We both felt comfortable knowing it was perfectly “us”, even if other people thought we were crazy! And I think everyone really had a good time. Hope you enjoy these pics, and I promise more wedding posts are coming, because I have a lot to tell you guys…mmkay?




Our friends and family lit Chinese lanterns during the rehearsal dinner to wish us good luck!



Our wedding programs...complete with the rocket ;-)

Walking down the aisle!

The surprise dip-kiss...as in, it was a surprise to me!!!

Just a little birdseed, right?!

Birdseed FAIL!




A twirl during our first dance: "Fly me to the moon"

How many people can say they danced the night away on the moon with the Apollo 16 capsule in the background?! Well, at least two!


Bridesmaids!

The garter dance started out normal...well "I'm sexy and I know it" was playing, but pretty much normal...

I think "I'm sexy and I know it" started making Chris do crazy things...

Then....SCUBA?! I expect nothing less from this man!! Haha!

My cute parents partying like it was 1999...my dad stole the show...ask anybody.

Awww...

Our last dance...Jack Johnson's "Better Together"

And the ever classy...Steak-n-Shake in the wedding clothes. Random guy in the parking lot, "Did ya'll just get married?" No. We just wear these for fun. Randomly. To Steak-n-Shake.

The End.

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…

Experience the Kennedy Space Center

Manned spaceflight is not a challenge forged from one molten idea - it's not a put-this-in get-that-out equation - it's not a sport for the isolationists. The notion that it was "one man's passion" or "one nation's resources" that got us to this engineering moment is simply false. And the idea that alienation could ever lead to exploration is impossible. There is likely no other industry or singular goal so intentional about teamwork - from employing teachers to technicians, soliciting standard to specialized natural resources, planning short term and long, investing in ideas and inspiration, training fresh-outs to experts, and communicating technically and politically. Tangibly, the manned spaceflight challenge crosses borders and age and gender, there are pieces of its presence spanning the entire globe, and beyond! 
One of those spots - notable for it's history as the last piece of Earth many astronauts touched before launch - is the Kennedy…
