3 am wake up call?

So….Nick and I both woke up this morning at 3 am to a strange noise that was coming out of our vents. He went downstairs to take the vent cover off of one and see if there was something in the vent.

 A few minutes later, I started smelling a burnt smell! He turned off the heat, but then the fan kicked back on 10 minutes later?!?  It was crazy and we have no clue what is going on.


This is when I’m really thankful we have a propane heater in our house, as well. Nick turned that on, and we went back to bed to weird noises around 4 am and finally got up around 7:30. Nick had to go in to work for a little bit this morning, but I stayed home in case the maintenance guys show up early. I hope we can get this thing fixed! 

Having that smell fill up the house was NOT fun when it’s that early, dark, and I don’t have my contacts in.


Breakfast was good since it wasn’t rushed!


I had some eggs cooked in a little olive oil over some grits





4 strawberries, 1/2 kiwi, and 1/2 clementine





And a really good cup of French Press Kona Coffee – we’re almost out!!!  I need a Trader Joes, super fast.





Today should be interesting, to say the least. I hope it’s not super expensive to fix!
