Stephen Is 28!

Last week, on March 26'th, we celebrated Stephen's birthday! Since he turned 28, here are 28 things you might not know about Stephen:1. When he was born, he looked so pretty that the nurses put a pink bow on his head and thought he was a girl.
2. He's been a certified scuba diver ever since he was a little kid, and his Dad was a scuba dive instructor.
3. He served his mission in Puebla, Mexico.
4. He falls asleep faster than anybody I know... within 5 minutes or sooner, every single night. It baffles me.
5. He had braces at one point, but he hasn't worn a retainer for years now and his teeth haven't moved a single bit.

7. He's a true University of Utah fan, despite all my best attempts.
8. His favorite ice cream flavors are chocolate peanut butter and Chubby Hubby.
9. If Stephen were an article of clothing, he would definitely be a hoodie. It's rare to see him without one on.
10. He makes awesome guacamole and yummy chicken enchiladas!
11. He majored in Information Systems at the University of Utah and got Microsoft Certified within a year after his graduation.
12. He loves video games, and used to play them with his friends all the time before he met me.

22. Kirsten always lights up when he comes home from work and starts playing with her.
23. He doesn't have any skills with musical instruments, but he did play the baritone in junior high... same as my dad!
24. Two years ago he went fishing without a license and almost got caught by the park ranger.
25. His favorite types of movies are comedies.
26. He says he doesn't have a "most embarrasing moment" and it's pretty impossible to scare him and make him jump.
