Buster ready to swim

Yesterday morning, I threw the kids into the van and drove them out to the Philly New Warriors Community friends and family weekend gathering. Marylynn was going up to the temple with her friend Jen, and so I saw a great opportunity for some fun family bonding time (man that made me sound so old!).

Jemma’s Wedding!!

Jemma by Tyler Jacobs

I just got back yesterday from Salt Lake City where I was attending my sister Emma’s wedding to her main man, Jed Briggs. With their powers combined, they are JEMMA!!

I almost wasn’t able to go due to financial restraints, but my mom hooked me up with a buddy pass (she works for jetBlue) and I was able to go all by my lonesome. I sure missed Finn and the kids, but I wasn’t gone TOO long.

It was quite a whirlwind trip. I flew out Friday. I did the wedding and reception on Saturday. Sunday, I had breakfast with my dad and siblings, had dinner with my good friend Toffer and tried to fly home on the same flight as Jemma. We got rejected (isn’t standby awesome?) and had to wait another 24 hours. So Monday I worked a little on my laptop and we went and saw the Dark Knight altogether. Then later Jemma and I flew back to JFK on the red eye (they were heading to Cancun). What a fun time. How about some photos?

Emma commissioned a bunch of her friends and family to paint portraits of them to display at the reception. That’s my piece above. Now check out the entire awesome Flickr album after the jump!! !!

Virgin Mobile Festival 08 Report!

Wednesday, August 13th, 2008


This past weekend, I had the pleasure of going to the Virgin Mobile Festival down in Baltimore. The Virgin Mobile Festival (or V-Fest as the kids say) is a 2-day rock festival that my company puts on every year that is rather awesome. Sure it’s no Coachella, but for my money’s worth, it’s definitely high on the awesome meter.

Marylynn didn’t want to go, so i offered her ticket to Billy Watkins, a 19-year old fellow music geek in my ward. We drove down to Baltimore together and had a total blast. i took a TON of pictures, and I whittled them down to the best 100. I then uploaded them to my new Flickr account (which is also awesome by the way). Prepare yourself for a butt-load of photos. You can click on them to view a larger size and/or comment on the individual pic! Flickr is so cool!!

Strange-Looking Words

Friday, August 1st, 2008

Current Mood:Confused emoticon Confused

Sometimes when I’m designing, I type out a common, normal word and it just doesn’t look right to me. I second-guess myself as to wether or not I misspelled it, but it’s correct. Then suddenly the word looks like it’s from a different language and my mind gets all tripped out. This just happened to me with the word “FROM”. It looks German or something. Just pronounce it: “FRUHM!!” Weird.
