My Matt is all grown up and flying jets.

In case you didn't know, Matt has a very cool job. And as much as I wish I could tell you all about it... we just don't go publishing those things all over the worldwide web, you know? But I do get to share this little tidbit, so buckle up because someone around here feels the need for speed. (Please excuse the cheese that was necessary to drop that movie quote.)

Matt was recently one of four engineers selected for an incentive program at our base. As a result, he's on flying status for the time being. Translation for those of you who don't speak military: my engineer now wears a rather attractive flight suit (a la Top Gun) and spends time in the air on various planes.* Last week's flight was the best yet: Matt not only rode in a supersonic jet--G-suit and all--but got to take the controls and fly it!
He had a lovely time doing barrel rolls and racing through the sky.

Ah, yet another rough day at work for my
breadwinner husband.

*To all of our studly pilot friends who do this on a daily basis, this is absolutely no big deal.
But for an engineer who's too much of a blind-bat to even think about flying? It's pretty neat :-)


  1. Awesome photos! And way cool that he's able fly considering he's an engineer.

  2. hey missy how did you change your blog format? i'm so sick of the three columns...any tips?

  3. Bryton-I have it set to Minima Lefty and just play with the HTML (the outer & main wrapper numbers, mostly). I can share the code with you if you'd like!

  4. I am jealous! I so wanted to be an astronaut when I was younger, and a jet would be the next best thing.

  5. Oh, I'm so excited about your new camera! And I can't wait to hear how you like that bag. Let me know, please!

  6. Sydna-you and Nicole both! In fact, if you asked her today what she wants to be when she grows up, she'll still tell you "a 3rd grade teacher and an astronaut." And she'll be dead serious :-)

  7. LUCKY! That would be so cool to even ride in a jet!!

  8. That is like the cooolest post EVER! I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That would be amazing to FLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Crap. Now I really hate my desk job.

    Matts off flyin' the friendly skies all day and I'm stuck in my chair getting carpal tunnel all day.
