Steve has a more flexible schedule than I do. With his environmental consulting gigs he often has time during the day for fun while I'm at work. I was futzing on the computer tonight and found a whole file of photobooth pictures that Steve has taken over the past year and sent to me randomly during work to keep me posted about what he's up to...

Sometimes he tries to be sexy.Sometimes while we're talking on the phone he'll take a picture of himself talking to me and send it.
Sometimes he does silly stuff.
Sometimes if I surprise him and come home early we make funny faces together.
"The Moose."
As it turns out, most of the pictures are more like "hey look at what I'm doing!"

"I'm eating a bowl of that watermelon we cut up last night!"
"Look at me in my hospital volunteer uniform!" (AKA stoned candy striper)
"Your first issue of your US Weekly subscription is here!"
When I secretly bought Ticket To Ride and had it mailed to our house for Steve.
We paid off our new car and the title arrives!!
Steve's textbooks arrive.
"Soy marinated flank steak for dinner!"
"Rx picked up!"
I had been planning to take my pj pants with me to work one day b/c I was going directly from work to babysit Sadie Kane and I wanted to be comfy. Apparently I forgot them.
Steve finds my secret chocolate stash.
I couldn't find my lotion one morning and Steve PROMISED he hadn't moved it anywhere. So at lunch I went to Walgreen's and bought a new bottle of lotion then got this in the afternoon from him. It was in one of his dresser drawers. This was his way of confessing.
"The honeydew melon you made me buy is disgusting!"
"Cilantro-lime marinated pork loin for dinner!"
Cash for the week.
So proud of his lop-sided loaf!

Keep those pictures coming honey!

My awesome brother-in-law Joseph and his equally awesome business partner Colton have successfully opened their second restaurant! Maybe you've heard of Pizzeria 712? Their new venture is called Communal and it's sure to please. If you're lucky enough to live in (or visit) the Provo/Orem Utah area (100 N. University Ave. in downtown Provo to be exact), stop in and check them out. And know that Steve and I are jealous of you.

Steve and I were so bummed that we couldn't make it out this week for the soft opening but you can see pictures on Jen & Suzy's blogs. The restaurant opens to the public tomorrow.

Congratulations Joseph, Colton & the rest of the P712 and Communal teams! We're sending you good luck from San Francisco for a successful opening this weekend!

We often see our friend Dave Thompson on the T.V. For some reason I am the one who spots him. It must be my keen scientific observation skills. The first time, it was a doppelganger, but this time its real (I hope).

I hope we see Dave more often on our t.v. Good work!
