We've had big changes in the ReddParty household this week.

First of all, Lee started his first semester of culinary school at Salt Lake Community College.

Exciting!  More on this in later posts.

Lee trying on his new duds--handsome!

Second, Lee had to shave for culinary school.

Beards aren't allowed in the Basic Food Preparation class he's in.  He can't even wear one of those tacky beard net thingees.  We were both bummed (see movie below).

Lastly, I actually recognized Lee when he shaved!  This is major for me! 

You see, in the four and a half years I've known Lee, I've seen him without any facial hair a total of 3 times. Three times!

One time, we met for dinner at a restaurant before going to a baseball game with friends. We were both getting off work late, so we decided to meet at the restaurant.

He had just shaved off his beard and buzzed his hair super short.

At the Bee's Game years ago!

When I entered the restaurant, I walked right past him.

I didn't recognize my own husband--how embarrassing!  (I didn't feel so bad when my friends tagged this photo of us and commented "We couldn't figure out for the longest time who that guy was that kept kissing Winter. Then we realized it was Lee.") 

Like I said, it's been an eventful week for us. 
Though Lee isn't feeling himself without his glorious beard (and I miss it too!), Lee is quite excited to be starting something that he is passionate about!

Here's a little video of part of our week.  Enjoy!


  1. That is so exciting!!! Sorry about the beard requirement. Beard shaving is such a drag:(

  2. That is so exciting! I've always thought culinary school would be so much fun! Good luck!

  3. That is the most exciting thing I've heard all week!

    Culinary school...congrats Lee...

  4. Let the dream begin . . . And you look good either way.

  5. Great video. When my husband shaved off his goatee (for me for Mother's day a few years back), I told him to grow it back! I had actually grown fond of something I thought I would hate! BTW - I think of you every time a cut a mango now because of one of your posts on how to cut a mango! Genius!

  6. Ooooh! Good luck in culinary school - Rachel is sooo jealous. It's okay if you don't have a beard. The fabulous white culinary outfit makes up for it. It's your culinary cape - you're a foodie super hero!


What's that you say?
