Team CAL

We have been busy making Science Beautiful in the Crazy Aunt Lindsey Fab Lab. If you haven't already, go check it out. It's a Passion Project I have been working on for the last few months. Here are some sneak peaks of the upcoming science fair project ideas!

I know it doesn't look like it, but it's ALL Science! Don't believe me? Go see for yourself!

Rabbit Hole Redo-Stripes

The Rabbit Hole continues to be a work in progress, although at this point there are only a couple little projects before it will be "done." For now. I am sure I will get itchy for change in a year or so. It's a trait I seem to have inherited from my mom. So here is the latest. I had painted a shape on  my bedroom wall that in my head was much better than the reality turned out to be. I didn't hate it but I didn't love it either and the room just didn't quite feel right. So when the Rents were here in November, we brainstormed and decided that a thick horizontal stripe might be lovely. So I had paint chips pinned to my wall for the last three months. Don't want to rush into anything. :) Anyway, this last weekend I got super motivated and decided IT WAS TIME. So Saturday I painted over the wall with white and taped off the Stripes and by Sunday I had a whole new room....and it's PERFECT!  Here is the before.

The In The Middle

And finished. Love it.

Ticker Tape Parade!

As a lifelong Cowboy fan, I know I am not supposed to root for the Giants. But as a newly converted Bronco fan I CANNOT root for a QB who beat my boy Tebow, Twice. Besides, just not a fan of Brady, although I do love some Brandon Spikes (Gator all the way). So all this to say that while I am obviously conflicted, I AM a NEW YORKER. I know it’s only been 18 months since my arrival but I got NY deep. So I rooted for the Giants in the Super Bowl AND they won! Which means I got to go to a Ticker Tape Parade! And it was FUN! I love seeing the city in such a celebratory mood! 

Yep, Flava Flav!

Love the look on Eli's face

Looks like it snowed!

This is how it should be done!

Feel free to comment below if you can id any of the players cause without a name on their back, I don't have a clue!

Congrats New York!
