Hollis Plays Varsity

At least he eats like does. We're at the Marietta branch of the
Atlanta landmark restaraunt getting fueled up for Hollis's first
bowling experience. More to come!

Da's Buecah

Happiness is not a reward, it's a consequence

According to Hollis's first fortune cookie anyway. Since Mommy isn't
a big fan of Chinese, while she was gone a couple of weekends ago, he
and I ventured out to Uncle Wong's (maybe the best General Tso's other
than Chef Lee's I've ever had)....via Da's buecah....his new favorite
thing to do.

Vegas Values Nuptials & Newlyweds

nuptial |ˈnəp sh əl; - ch əl| adjective of or relating to marriage or weddings : moments of nuptial bliss. • Zoology denoting the characteristic breeding behavior, coloration, or structures of some animals : nuptial plumage. noun (usu. nuptials) a wedding : the forthcoming nuptials between Justin and Jessica. ORIGIN late 15th cent.: from Old French, or from Latin nuptialis, from nuptiae ‘wedding,’ from nubere ‘to wed’ ; related to nubile .

The whirlwind of romance between Justin and Jessica is about to culminate in a Vegas Vortex baby! (did someone say baby?...just kidding no shotguns at the ceremony please). They met in the most happenstance of circumstances in January. They were engaged shortly thereafter, and we were told to expect a spring 2008 wedding. Well, Jessica has moved to Columbus from Tampa (as sad as that sounds to those of us from Columbus, she's originally from New Jersey so this is not as bad for her as your first thought) and she and "Rin Tin" are ready to pull the trigger now, as in Sept 8th@ Las Vegas, NV! I'm working on a speech "for the ages" and you best believe the number 111 will be invoked - those of you blessed enough to dine with Stacy and I during our rehearsal dinner might remember my romantic goof-ball ode to numerology? By the way this pic of the soon to be nuptially blissful couple happened to be the 111th picture taken with my then cameraphone (you might have heard about my new one?)

I swear the number wasn't purposefully arrived at which means it was meant to be. Aren't they cute?!

Jessica called me TWICE (!) in one day

So, I've been yet another slacker of a blogger, having not posted in quite some time despite so many family stories and pictures I could've shared. This one, however, was just too important not to share: Jessica Miller called me not once, but two times yesterday evening! Using Katie's great advice the other night (at Roo's Spaghetti Factory birthday party, notice "Woo Woo" in background, we're no fools people, oh and HB Christie!) to text Jess instead of leaving her yet another voicemail, I finally managed to get her sweet attention.
She informed me she's loved her time in Colorado traipsing around all of it's natural glory (and getting paid at least a little bit for it), and looks forward to her next adventure in Christian service, probably volunteering somewhere abroad for the next several months. Wherever she is we all now know (thanks to Katie) that much like her father, voicemail is not technology JBear cares to utilize. Text her if you want her sweet attention mkay!
