Christopher turned 28!
He is adorably sexy with the gray hairs popping up on his head and his cute lawyer outfits.
(skinny ties & Ted Baker slacks, say what?!)
I think he is so very handsome.

This boy celebrated his big day at the..... office! (insert sad "aww" here) He was so swamped he couldn't even take a lunch break :( He has already billed 195hrs this month (and has two days left). For those of you who aren't familiar with how lawyers bill their hours, it's not actually how many hours he is in the office, it's only the time he spent on the projects/assignments/cases--so he was in the office for MUCH more than 195hrs... :(
After he got off work we went to dinner in LA & saw a late movie--low key & relaxed, just how he wanted it to be. My big plans of having a swanky dinner in Beverly Hills had to be canceled because he got off work too late. It's hard to spoil someone when they can't ever plan anything. He is such a hard worker, I just hope he enjoyed his day.

His family came down on Saturday, along with our good friends Trevor & Shelby to celebrate with us! Lindsay's boo, Curtis, had a birthday this week too! So we also celebrated his. Here are some pics from that night. Our waiter fed Chris his dessert, it was awkward & therefore hilarious. We always love having family over, and miss living close to them!
Chris has had quite a BIG year! He graduated Law School, passed the California Bar Exam, started a new job, moved to a new city, lost 30 lbs, and has been an amazing husband throughout it all. He is excelling quickly at his firm, learning a lot and becoming quite the working professional :) He is still his quirky self, still the best breakfast cook in the house, and takes the world's longest showers. He is doing his best to juggle everything he has going on, and I think he is doing a great job! He may be an old man now, but I still think he is exciting & fun as ever!
And despite his lack of water conservation, I am proud to call him mine!

Happy Birthday Big Boy!
I love you!

*still a boy at heart, even if you are OLD now!
