August 16th, OK?

Apparently, I seriously dropped the ball. Who knew that my devoted readers keep on top of things, but obviously you all do. It’s not like we were keeping it a secret or anything and we’ve told anyone who asked. It just slipped my mind to put it on my blog. So, without further ado…

The big day is scheduled for Saturday, August 16th 2008.

We have been engaged for two full months as of this Friday. Presently, we have just about everything nailed down. Date, locale (for reception at least), caterer, photographer, DJ, cake, colors, dress, tuxes, honeymoon, you name it. I believe the only semi-major type thing left to do is flowers.

Yes, I’ll take full credit for getting all of this done. I’ve really been busting my ass, making decisions and calling all over town coordinating everything. I will say it has been kinda tough dragging Jess through this whole process…

Oh… Hi baby, didn’t see you there… a-hem… whoops… um… I mean… er… well, see… ahh… the thing is… uh…

Just kidding. She has actually been super efficient in nailing all this down. She jumped into the deep end and has done an amazing job. If it was up to me, we’d be nowhere. Getting married at the local Moose Lodge or something officiated by Reverend Skeeter, local pastor and tractor mechanic.

So, there ya go. You’re all up to date now. For the record, you’ll notice that I’ve added a new category to the right navigation called “Wedding”. This can be your conduit for all things wedding related here on my blog. Right now, this will be the only post in there, but stay tuned. More will be coming to feed you people’s voracious appetite for wedding details.

Aloha means goodbye

We have just had the umpteenth snowstorm so far this winter. My car was again frozen in place this morning. I’m tired of snow. I’m tired of cold. I’m tired of scraping my windshield. I’m tired of gloves and hats and coats. I am so sick to death of winter I can’t even describe.

Luckily, we’ve done a little something about that.  Jess and I have settled on our honeymoon destination. And is it a doozy.

Maui, bitches.

I Am Legend – Jan 3rd

My buddy George and I go to a lot of movies. I have been extremely lax about posting movie reviews on this site, and I want to get better about that this year. He had the idea that he is going to keep a “Movie Journal” about what he sees this year (in theaters that is), and I thought that was a great idea. So, I’ma gonna steal it. Thus, my journal will be here. (see, George, if you had a blog, you could have claimed this for your own…) Keep watching this spot for future reviews. Well, technically, these won’t always be strict reviews. They will probably be filled with things that made me crazy, didn’t work, or questions about why characters did what they did. Without further ado…

The first flick (and only flick for that matter) I’ve seen so far is the sci-fi piece I Am Legend starring Will Smith.

Now, this thing will be filled with spoilers, so if you haven’t seen the movie and don’t want it ruined, quit reading now.

I’m alive and other happenings

Ok, so we did survive the winter’s drive to Sun Valley this past weekend.  I have neglected to blog about due to the fact that I picked up a cold bug somewhere along the way.  It has kicked my ass this whole week, including spending Tuesday in bed.

Hopefully, I’ll tell you about our trip and show you some pictures soon.

In other news, my soon-to-be better half has decided to jump into the blog pool with the rest of us!  May I present to you… Winkle Wonderland.  Welcome to the club, baby.  You will find the link to her blog among the others on the lower right of this page.

Weekend Getaway

Last year around this time, I made my way to the valley of the sun.

This weekend, we’re swapping that around and instead heading off to Sun Valley. No, neither of us ski. We’re going to just relax… have some nice meals… do a little shopping. All the things a weekend getaway entails.

You’ll hear and see more about it when I return.

By the way, we’re driving, so if you don’t hear anything from me in the next few days, we could have slid off the road and are stuck in a ditch. Send the authorities.

Boise Snow

I know I haven’t written for awhile… it’s been a little nuts around here. Work has been super crazy and I’m still recovering from the holidays. I haven’t felt much like writing. But, since I needed to at least acknowledge the new year, here goes.

Happy new year everyone!

Ok, with that out of the way here is this.

Perhaps you remember this picture I posted last fall …

Well, we had a pretty good snow storm blow through here last night…

I think my plan is to do one for each season, then, get them matted and framed as a single set. Kinda cool, no?

Remember that crazy amount of work I have? Well, I had better get back to it. Even though it’s Sunday. *sigh* Tight deadlines wait for no man.
