The Still, Small, signs of life that You have made.
Thank You for the signs of years gone by,
For time that You have created, planned, and overseen,
For generation upon generation that have walked on Your earth.

More to come on my love for fall and about my exciting weekend plans!
More to come on the week of loneliness/productiveness
He approves. :)
All done with work for the day. Heading out to dinner and a movie. Carrabbas and to see Eagle Eye. Both were great.
We used our wedding photographer's secret of having the groom squat down in order to get him to look more relaxed and not so cheesey. It worked I think!
Talking politics and ignorance on our drive to dinner. And during dinner. And on our drive to the movie. It WAS his birthday afterall, right?
Opening his fedex mailer from mom and dad.... he got scrabble! We love that game.
His loot. Some of the shirts need to be returned, but everything else was great! Crazy shirt sizes. I bout him 5 shirts all from O N and in the same size (m) and style (fitted,) but only 3 of them fit. Crazy.
This was the birthday banner that I was going to string together for him during my lunch break. Only, I got a call from the county saying I was approved as a substitute and had only 24 hours to get in to get my drug test. Which meant my lunch break was the only opportunity. So here lays the banner. Oh well. We'll use it next year. It's pretty don't you think?
Also, we're trying to start traditions so our first real one that we decided on is this : Tonight, after all of the festivities were over, Ian crawled into bed and I dug out our unity candle from the wedding. I lit it and took it to him, he held it as I snuggled in next to him, and I prayed for him and the coming year. We plan on doing this for each other on birthdays and we'll both do it on our anniversary. I think it's a great way to stay 'united' and to remember that the candle wasn't just a one time thing, it represented a lifetime of unity.
The completed cake. Bulldog colors. Of course, then the cake stand top didn't fit over top of it because it would squish the red icing on the bottom. But not to fear, I got creative by flipping over a metal bowl that my grandma gave me for a lid.
Ian being helpful and getting our salads ready, because I insisted a little shredded cheese on tacos does not count as a vegetable.
Getting the tacos prepped. Notice a theme in the pictures? Sure does seem like a lot of our time is in food prep or consumption.
Yum. We sure do love our mexican food. Alot.
After dinner I got a pretty bad headache. Halfheartedly watched the biggest loser (it just doesn't have much umph this season,) and headed to bed. Leaving in my wake a mass of unfinished chores. For example the dishes....
And hanging up my clean laundry. I feel like I just dropped everything. Probably because I did!
