Hi! I’m Elissa. I’m the girl one in this adorable family picture:

I’m just a crazy Mormon mom trying to balance motherhood with the nerd lifestyle in order to generate Good Times. I live with my husband, Tom, and adorable almost-two-year-old, Dan, in the Golden Triangle area of Southeast Texas. I love cooking, crafts, books, music, science, and working ever-so-slowly toward my dream of being an author.

So if you like chemistry memes, grainy pictures of delicious food and adorable children, and rants about how Peter Jackson is terrible, stick around, and make yourself at home!

  1. Hello Ms. Elissa,

    I hope you are doing well. I’m not sure whether or not you are the same Elissa Nysetvold who wrote the wonderful story “More beautiful than Tolkien,” from an old book published by the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, The Dating Game. The story, however, touched my heart and soothed my soul in a very positive way.

    Best wishes,

  2. I was impressed with the way you met Tom in you life and how your lives had very quickly incorporated in each other’s life. My heart sank in a sea of emotions that you had so much in common, especially the fictional literature. True love is not something we find, it is something that finds us. We should never get married with the person whom we can live with, we must marry the person whom we can’t live without. Sometimes in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us an extraordinary fairytale.
