I love me some Justin

Today is one of my favorite people in the whole wide world's birthday. Justin is one of Brian's best friends (he was one of the best men at our wedding for those of you that were there). Justin is transparent and funny and interesting and... His wife is also one of my favorite people in the whole wide world and she has a nice little collection of stories going on her blog in honor of his birthday. Check it out here. Justin has a blog too but he NEVER updates it.

I couldn't narrow it down to one specific "favorite Justin moment" but I think it is funny that Justin was on my and Brian's first date. Our date was all night skiing at a local slope and I really didn't know Brian at all (obviously, it was our first date). So the deal was I was supposed to drive over to his house and ride up to the slope with them. I started to get nervous, remember I'm a Florida girl that has never in my life skied before and I was about to go spend an entire night doing just that with a bunch of people that I didn't know. I called Brian's house and was a little bit backing out but he talked me into coming over to his house right then and just hanging out first. I did. The door opened to Brian and Justin and the smell of cookies throughout the house. For some reason this really cracks me up now because I know that there had to be a huge conversation about the cookie making. Who's idea was this anyway guys? Was this an effort to impress the new girl? Anyway we had an awesome time and I probably spent a little more time with Justin then I did Brian just because he was on the bunny slopes with me learning to snowboard and Brian was a skiing fool. I could go on to include another favorite Justin moment: Justin's skiing accident #562 but we'll save that for another day.


  1. OMG, these pics are HILARIOUS. I almost just lost it in front of all the kiddies taking their Latin V exam. Gotta love that grape shot.

  2. That last pic is PRICELESS! Justin is a funny guy, and one of my favorites as well. :) Sounds like you all had a blast on Easter! Have a great week.
