My birthday is on Sunday, but Kevin has been telling me how excited he is for my birthday for quite a while. He’s been joking about celebrating my birthday on the 22 but I kept telling him we had to celebrate it on the 15th.
So as it turns out… I came home from my night class on Tuesday and the door was locked even though Kevin was home. So, I knocked and Kevin let me in. He told me I couldn’t go into the kitchen or bedroom. I waited for a few minutes and then he walked me into the kitchen with my eyes closed and sat me down. We prayed and then I was allowed to open my eyes. He had prepared homemade Alfredo which we ate on china and had sparkling cider in our wine goblets under a makeshift candlelight (our lamp covered with a cloth). It was wonderful!
I thought that was very sweet and that maybe we were celebrating my birthday, but I wasn’t sure. Neither of us had any homework to do so we were deciding what to do. Kevin said he needed to take a shower and I said I probably should to. I told him that I would have to go into our room to get pajamas though. He said that would probably be ok. I walked in our room and the bed was covered with gifts, which I thought he was going to make me wait to open. However, he didn’t. So we opened the gifts which consisted of a blue shirt for skiing (from Jim, Nancy and Shannon), a super soft red robe and slippers, pearl earrings, the new Brian Regan DVD, and best of all :) chocolates (Kevin pointed out this was the best gift because it was chocolate AND because I could share it with him:). All of the gifts were very thoughtful and it was a lot of fun to celebrate early. Thanks love!
Kevin wanted me to add these to our blog as well, so here they are! For my Photography class we were supposed to shoot a landscape. So, one evening Kevin and I went up to a view point off Squaw Peak road and shot a few pictures. We lost light pretty quick because we were a little too late, but I got a couple good shots, most of them just look similar. But here are the two I think were best!

So… I am currently working on this project for my typography class. The assignment is to make a poster highlighting a typeface of our choice. We are supposed to emphasize the important parts of the typeface and also have some sort of concept behind the design. Franklin Gothic was designed for newspapers because it is very easy to read in condensed forms. So, I decided to fashion my poster after a newspaper. It is supposed to have color and something that stands out from 50ft, 5ft and 5in. It’s been interesting trying to add color to it because newspapers are mostly black and white and the color is mostly in images, however, early newspapers used quite a bit of red so I’m trying to incorporate that. You can click on the image to view it larger if you would like.
I got my haircut last week. It was long enough that I was able to donate 10 inches to Locks of Love for a total donation of 20 in. It seems crazy to think the last time I cut that much off was 2 1/2 years ago. So here’s a before and after.
For Halloween my mom hosted a party so Kevin and I went to that. Kevin had some sever injuries and I was the doctor helping him. Here are some pictures of pretty much everyone there:
