    Gonna brag on myself for a min - 100% in tasting is ridiculous. That means every single one of the 12 samples I tasted I got right as well as my rationale of why they tasted correct or not. So I identified all the off flavors correctly as well as identifying each beer style correctly. And I explained why each was off, the chemical compounds involved, how they got there/what happened, etc. Very proud of that one because a lot of people fail the tasting portion.

    Nice work @Erie!

    I woke up a couple nights ago in the middle of the night to hear two nurses standing by C2 talking about how cute he is. Y’all my kids are cute AF.

    Girl most people have never heard of the Cicerone program it is not just you. I always explain it as the beer version of the wine sommelier program. I passed Level 2, which is where you can call yourself a Certified Cicerone. There are four levels to the program, I passed the first about two years ago. As of now I have zero intent on taking the other two levels (like, a handful of people in the world have attained level 4 so fuck that). But this was a big goal for myself, and the pass rate for this specific level exam is lower than the bar exam. I only know two other people who passed both sections (written and tasting) on the first try. I’m just really excited right now lol!

    There are many options worse than Modelo.

    Truth. Also Modelo brings me back to A's first time in NY when we found a Mexican place and he had mole for the first time, the start of a real love for him, so it has a special place in my heart haha

    My phone wasn't connecting to the network, only wifi (so I couldn't get texts or calls when not in the house) and I googled it and fixed it myself!

    So I <3 Dr. Pepper. I noticed a few weeks ago that they had a promotion going on but missed out. Sadness.

    Then P came to the rescue! Behold, my first ever Funko!!

    Pupdate: I never said anything about this to our nanny, but apparently she's into photography and surprised me yesterday with a bunch of edited photos of C as a gift for his birthday. They aren't as good as a legit pro photographer, but they're better and more frameable than my 90 million cell phone pics of him. I thought it was really thoughtful that she checked with M beforehand to make sure that we wouldn't mind her photographing him, but they kept it a surprise for me.
