Happy 11th Anniversary?

You meet someone. You fall in love. 🤪🥰 After days/months/years of courtship you get engaged or dedice to tie the knot. Venues and plans are explored. You pick a date based on the experiences that best describe your relationship. Perhaps one that is close to your future spouses birthday, or your own, so no one... Continue Reading →

Safety Before Beauty

I am that weirdo. The one that puts safety, not comfort, before fashion. If a product is not safe, I won't use it. If a shoe is too tall and will cause temporary or permanent damage, regardless of the designer name or prestige, I won't wear it. If the skirt is too short, the cleavage... Continue Reading →

Of Life, Adulting and Challenging the Status Quo

My family realized I had the makings of an engineer because of my endless curiosity. Intrinsically, looking for patterns and figuring out how things were interconnected motivated me to ask questions of depth and substance. Whenever the adults didn't have an answer they would hand over a book, magazine or tool and leave me to... Continue Reading →

#IMarriedAnEngineer

February celebrates National E-Week and this year, I'd like to try to start a movement to celebrate all engineering spouses. It is not easy to love and support this rare breed of human who can fix anything, break anything, and explain anything that crosses their path with math, science and a nerdy sense of humor....

Hawken (PS4)

As a PS+ member, I like to look for value titles to justify paying the yearly subscription and Hawken didn't disappoint. Set in some soet of post apocalyptic or future world where everyone can pilot a robot (or so I think, it wasn't clear to me), you get combat peers and AI to earn points... Continue Reading →

After six weeks of switching out meat for healthier options, I reintegrated meat back into every meal. The results were good at first but after day three, I could tell the "meat once a day" rule had its value and benefits. Some of the pounds were coming back, which was not a welcomed change, and...

Skipping Meat Challenge: Week 4

Week 4 came by fast and with it I noticed some consistent weight loss (5 lbs total). I'm still doing one meal with meat and skipping it for the others and snacks. Because I am eating less carbohydrates as well, I have more energy and sleep a lot better. Woohooo! The allergies are still a... Continue Reading →

Moneypalooza!

From late February to late March our employer gives out the yearly bonuses and salary adjustments. This results in an influx of cash each Q1 that is used for trips, gifts and my upcoming birthday celebration. Because of the delay of our baby, Château Enginerd, the money comes at a very auspicious time since we... Continue Reading →

Turning 30 is Tricky 

Lets face it, by the time you turn the big 3-0 people expect you to have your house decorated like a Pottery Barn catalogue instead of showcasing proudly all of your Voltron action figures and memorabilia. Over my dead nerdy body! It is as if by decree you must become a functioning adult who has... Continue Reading →
