Nerdy Alert

So I am an absolute nerd. I didn't quite realize it until a few years ago. Thank goodness I married a fellow nerd. I have found an awesome blog that embodies my nerdyness exactly. The writer is a Disney/Doctor Who/80s flick freak, I'm pretty sure if we were to meet, we would be bestest friends. The other day she posted a link to Olly Moss who is a silhouette artist. Check out the website, you could spend a good hour just having fun identifying the silhouettes.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Not only would they look great above my staircase, I think it would be a nonchalant way to identify kindred spirits. Some would just say 'oh that looks nice' and others would say 'HOLY CRAP you have a dalek, Rufio, and the loose seal on your wall!!!!!!!!

And that is how you weed out who to take to twizleberry.

..... lately

I know we've been MIA recently. A lot has been happening. To make a long depressing story short, at 10 weeks pregnant we found out that I was going to miscarry. Its been a rough few weeks, but we are so grateful that what was starting to look like a much more serious health problem has been resolved and we are bouncing back.
Dalan has been fortunate enough to obtain an internship on campus. While it is unpaid, he is learning extremely valuable skills, and it is a requirement for his degree. He is also a teacher's aid for Fall and Spring semesters, a student host for the Operations seminar, and a member of the Lean Leaders organization on campus. It's funny to think that my plumber husband is so involved in business and academics now. He is scheduled to graduate in May and depending on internship opportunities, he may begin his MBA next Fall.
Our house is still for sale, we've now passed the 1 year mark and it doesn't seem like we'll ever be able to move. Things are expected to pick up during the summer months, so hopefully we'll see some more interest.
We've decided that we need a little break, so we are going on an end of summer trip to Disneyland with the Lewises. We are SO excited and will be heading out in August!
